can your internet do that? . we are learning more about the covid-19 pill that could be a game changer as the u.s. reaches another milestone in the pandemic. president biden urges his party to come together on aan agenda. plus the latest into the death of gabby petito and a possible sighting of her missing fionse brian laundrie. welcome to us here from canada and the unsz and around the
world. this is cnn "newsroom." live from cnn center, this is cnn "news proom." >> several hundred thousands americans have now lost their lives to the coronavirus with the last 100,000 deaths added in little more than 100 days. the staggering figure comes wow there are deadly fallen infections. poly, more booster options are likely coming. the administration will meet in mid-october to discuss booster doses. later in the month, the panel is set to discuss using pfizer vaccine for children under 12. merck's if you drug isn't on the fda calendar yet. it's not stopping experts from calling it a dramatic game
changer. cnn's dr. gupta has more on what we are learning. >> this the a pretty big deal. in fact, a data safety monitoring board actually looked at the trial results. they're ongoing from merck and decided they looked so good that they actually wanted to stop the trial and encourage the company to go ahead and apply for emergency useful often sometimes they're stopped because it looks too futile. let me show you the data. basically, these were participants who were in the early stages of disease. it's very important. they weren't super sick. they weren't in the hospital certainly early. they have been diagnosed with mild symptoms. those who got the drug. 325 of them, 28 were hosp hospi hospitalized. in the placebo group 337, 45 were hospitalized.
eight died. when you do the math on that, that's the 50% reduction in likelihood of hospitalization and death. nobody died in the group that actually received the medication. now, all this information so far are coming from the company,lets. it seeds to be reviewed by the fda. it's got to be reviewed to see if the efficacy data actually holds up. also, just how safe it is. that's going to be a big question as well. if it does go through and gets the emergency use authorization, this will be an option for people who have been diagnosed with covid. it is not a substitute for the vaccine. i think most people probably realize that. but the vaccine is to prevent illness. this is to treat illness and that's going to be a major point i think that comes up over and over again. we still encourage the vaccines very much. one thing we want to point out. we don't hear a lot about anti-virals. we hear about antibiotics. viruses replicate within human
cells. they need the human body and human cells to replicate. that's in part what makes anti-viral challenging, because the virus is within the human cell. the way this medication seems to work is by basically interfering with how the virus rep politics. it takes all these various components to allow this to replicate. this drug is sticking a trojan horse in the machinery of that replication. so the replication doesn't continue. people don't develop a sophisticate amount of viralload, they're not as sick. they're not as like will i to transmits. if all pans out, it will be another important tool when it comes to fighting covid. not sa substitute for a vaccine. cost, probably around $700 per course, which is two pills a day for five days, as we get more news about this, we'll certainly bring it to you. >> the nation's most populous
state will become the first to require a covid vaccine for k through 12 to attend school in person. the governor announced the measure on friday. the requirement will go into effect in the school term after the fda gives full approval for the age groups to get the vaccine. it will apply to students in both public and private schools and is subject to medical briefs. he explained it to cnn's on that cabrera. >> we want to get this pandemic behind us. while we made great progress, california 84% of californians eligible received one dose, with the lowest case rate in america. we have a cohort to get to 17 right now, while only 63.5% of our kids have received at least one dose of vaccine. we think this will accelerate our efforts to get this pandemic behind us. >> california is one of 34 states that evacuated more than half of the residents.
it's an example to other states by implementing vaccine mandates across a football of industries. earlier i spoke to the associate executive trekker of the p perm permanente group. i asked him if mandates made a difference in his hospital. here he s.. >> we have had an incredible response. before the fourth mandate was put in place, we were at 78% vaccination rates. in california now, we're up above 78% for employees and 98% for our physicians. tremendous uptake. three things, nothing like a requirement. two, it's encouraged these conversations, critical conversations about disinformation. i have to call out our managers and actually our labor unions that have leaned in to actually dispel that disinformation. and then the third thing is you can't really dismiss the delta effect. i think delta, that variant,
really galvanized people. it scared people, too. so all those things put together i think has led to these incredibly high percentages of vaccinations. >> then those who haven't, i mean, what have you done or what do you plan to do with those who refuse? do you suspend them? fire them? >> so a number of people verify exemptions, there are a few people that decline to get exemption or vaccinated. they have been put on administrative leave. they have the opportunity over the next couple months to engage if further conversation. but, yes, if necessary, we will terminate people. that is not our goal, though. absolutely not our goal. our goal is to protect the work force, to protect our patients and to protect our communities. i'm just so heartened by the fact that we saw this tremendous uptake. i'll just tell you, kim, when you have percentages above 90%,
our communities are fought seeing people get hospitalized. this latest surge, we have communities within california, particularly the san francisco bay area, where the vaccination rates are 90% and higher for the eligible population and their hospitalization rates were 20%, comparable to other places with lower vaccination rates. >> let me ask you about that, in areas like rural parts of the state, the evacuation is much less. i was reading the busiest hospital in one republican part of the state said more than 30% of the workers had been granted tloe those religious exemptions as they are asking anyone to avoid the mass exodus of staff, to avoid lawsuits. it's a paradox, because we're seeing more covid patients and deaths in areas, where more people are refusing to get vaccinated. that seems to be where hospitals are letting their staff keep
working without getting vaccinated. how do you deal with that in those times of areas? >> i think one of the most important things here is to show people the outcomes and to show that you don't get sick. you don't have your hospitals overrun with covid when you do this. for kaiser permanente, we have been challenging our vendors and contractors to participate and asking them to mandate vaccination. we're also reaching out to community benefit organizations that we provide grants and funding to, to also participate in mandatory vaccination. the other thing i will just say is we need to hold the business community to rally around this. there are other large industries. the airline industry is one, in particular, that has moved in the route mandating vaccinations. if you look at the country in the united states, more than two-thirds the of all workers now have some form of a mandate.
so i think that the momentum is on the side of getting our workers vaccinated. >> all right. that's all the time we have. thanks so much for joining us, we really appreciate it. >> thank you, good to be with you. so though numbers are still high, it appears the final infections may finally be waning. according to john hopkins', the seven-day average dropped 30% from the 1st of september to the 30th. over the same period, daily deaths dropped by about 20% and something else that's spreading, covid optimism. cnn's michael holmes explains. >> reporter: dinner and drinks, the return of one of the simple pleasures of life in japan, just one of the signs of getting back to a sense of normal in some spots around the globe, where the number of if you coronavirus cases have declined. japan has lifted a state of
emergency in all regions of the country for the first time if six months, allowing restaurants to increase their hours of operation and sell alcohol, once again. new infections in japan have dropped dramatically from over 20,000 a day in august to just under 2,000 now. welcome progress for people who have been encouraged to skip non-essential gatherings. >> i was just commuting fbetwee my home and my company, because of lack of communication, i felt lonely. >> reporter: they say the new numbers of deaths are declining, town 10% from mid-september. cautious optimism, though the virus is still circulating and killing. and experts warn it could quickly rebound. 52 emis also easing some of its coronavirus measures after a gradual decline in cases there. a stay@home order was lifted in
hochi-min city. people in hanoi exercise outside in small groups and malls and retail stores have opened, something many hope will revive the economy. >> this year the outbreak is more complicated than the last. i have been jobless for two months now with no income. so staying at home feels very suffocating. >> reporter: masks are required on havana's famous seaside promenade. but the popular spot to fish or open up the sun is opened again after being limited after cuba's covid-19 restrictions. even the traditional double kiss in paris is making a slow comeback after falling out of favor during the outbreaks if france. >> i've stopped kissing people on the cheek due to covid due to social distancing. now i kiss people i know. only to loved ones, not people i don't know very well. >> reporter: the power of a human touch or a breath of fresh

the president was optimistic. here he is. >> i'm telling you, we're going to get this done it doesn't matter when. it doesn't matter whether it's in six minutes, six days or six weeks. we're going to get it done. >> so as you've just heard, the president dismissed artificial deadlines. he is now telling democrats to take as much time as they need to negotiate the ambitious suspending package. we get more from cnn's jeremy dimon at the white house. >> reporter: with his legislative agenda on the line, president biden arrived on capitol hill making his most public play yet to bridge the multi-million dollar democratic divide. he addressed democrats after nancy pelosi delayed a vote on the trillion dollar infrastructure bill rather than watch it sink under the weight of progressive demand. now a new approach for the president after a week spend negotiating on the phone and in
the oval office. >> why the change in tactics? is that a make-or-break moment? >> this is a moment where he feels it's exactly the right time to go to the caucus and make the case for why it's important to work together to get this agenda done. he wants to speak directly to members, answer their questions and make the case for why we should all work together to give the american people more breathing room. >> reporter: now the white house and democratic leaders are trying to get moderate senators to buy into a $2.1 million excise framework. the late-night meetings between officials and moderates so far yielding no deal, manchin sticking to his own top line number. >> my top line has been 1.5 because i believe if my heart what we can do and the needs we have and what we can afford to do without being basically changing our whole society to an entitlement mentality. >> reporter: the white house insisting a deal is closer than ever. >> the negotiation and the
deal-making alls happens at the end. it doesn't matter how the process works or how many weeks there are, it always happens at the end. this is exactly the moment where people put tear bought lom lines down, their best ideas forward and there is however negotiating. that's exactly what's happening. >> reporter: emerging with that meeting with house democrats, president biding vowing we are going to get this done, saying it doesn't matter if it takes six minutes, six days, six weeks, we're going to get it done. according to lawmakers in the room, the president was very much laying out the stakes. the high stakes as it relates to his entire agenda and the priority for the democratic caucus at large, talking about the need to pass not only this infrastructure bill as well as the $3.5 billion budget reconciliation. according to one law maker in the room, the president made clear that compromise was going to be fess, it was far more likely something in the realm of $2 trillion was going to happen. for now, the president back at
the white house and negotiations still ongoing. jeremy dimon, cnn, the white house. >> so those negotiations, if successful, will ultimately lead to a single bottom line number that everyone agrees on. earlier, the head of the democrats' progressive caucus spoke with our anderson cooper about what that elusive figure might be and that money actually represents. >> sit specifics you want to hear from sinema and mandhin. he had given the 1.5 number a while ago to dana bash of cnn. is it specifics i feed to hear? >> well, i don't think that's the number. that's not going to be acceptable to us. this is a negotiation, so we need to figure out how we're going to get to a number that we can all adpee on. but the key thing we were fighting for, anderson, which which feel so proud about tonight is we were fought going to leave behind families who feed child care, who need paid
leave. people who feed affordable housing. people who are committed to delivering real results on climate change. we're not going to leave behind immigration. these were the five priorities of the cpc that are in the build back better agenda, the build better act i should say. >> natasha is a professor in justice from england. i want to start by asking you about that quote from president biden that keeps getting repeated there. it doesn't matter whether it's in six minutes, six days or six weeks, we're going to get it done. the last part first, will they get it done? >> well, i think they absolutely have to. this is one of those situations where they don't have a choice because the democratic party appears as if they can't govern if they don't get it done. this is also as you mentioned, this is the cornerstone of joe biden's huge domestic agenda to
really transform society by providing huge amounts of investment in infrastructure that's badly needed, which we talked about at length. they have all the investment in high speed internet and bridges and roads and so forth. but this social safety net bill, which is progressives have fought for to delay in order to ensure that it does get passed is going to be popular offering support for pre-k, offering free community college tuition, expanding medicaid and offering child tax credits. all these things are going to be very popular. this is really qucritical at th point, because right now joe biden's approval ratings aren't doing that well. he's at 45%, that is seven points higher than trump at this point but 7 points below obama. he is struggling with key
graphics, meaning african-americans and hanging on with older people, men and white college educated. but people have this perception that the one big thing he said he was going to deliver is he's going to improve people's trusts in government and make feel people feel like government can help them. at the moment the optics weren't very good. so they needed to come back to the table and at least ensure they get these two pieces of agenda passed. >> we'll have to leave it there. thank you so much. we really appreciate you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. more body footage is sharing a line between a domestic dispute between gabby petito and her fiance. and the largest incursion by china yet. we'll have the latest from taipei coming up. stay with us. have you tried crunching? crunching gave me resting fun face.
