7:04 am
been so skittish about the idea of a federal vaccine mandate, but now with covid cases rising again, the va is doing just that, as are california and new york city, creating a model for other states and cities and agenci integrated health care system with more than 1300 medical centers and clinics serving more than 9 million veterans. now all medical personnel who work in or even visit va facilities must get their shots by mid september. >> veteran affairs is going to in fact require that all docs working in facilities are going to have to be vaccinated. >> reporter: the new mandate issued the same day that nearly 60 medical associations called on all health care facilities to require that workers get vaccinated, to reduce the harmful toll this virus is taking within the work force. >> this is about keeping people safe. >> new york city's new mandate requires all city workers prove they're vaccinated or take

7:06 am
businesses from mandating vaccines. and in fact public vaccine mandates are nothing new. the first one took place in the early 1900s during the small pox epidemic. >> nancy, thank you. now to florida which is reporting one in five of the nation's new covid cases. only 48% of the state's population has gotten both shots and amid the spread of misinformation. this is slightly below the national average on vaccinations. we're joined from jacksonville. manny, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anthony. a the -- at one point, they had only 14 covid positive patients. now there are 178. more than 90% of them are unvaccinated. for the staff here it's not necessarily reliving the worst of the pandemic because this is the highest number of covid-19

7:08 am
consume the same social media as others. they're that susceptible to the misinformation. >> reporter: yes, the unvaccinated are in covid's cross hairs but the impacts can reach beyond. >> it's been said this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated but here for ocedurthat areul affects everybody. >> absolutely. our hospital is filling with unvaccinated covid patients. what's going to happen is it keeps other patients from receiving care. >> reporter: many who end up at the hospital regret not getting the shot says nurse zoey cinist. >> we have a patient who says he would like to get the vaccine now. >> reporter: as for curtis sanderland. >> given what you've gone through, would you get the vaccine now? >> yes, sir. >> you would get it now? >> no doubt about it. >> what's your message for people who haven't gotten it? >> take it. take it. take it. do the right thing. >> reporter: doctors here fear they may not see the peak of this surge until september.
7:09 am
last month when the state's positivity rate for new cases fell below 5%, the state of florida stopped issuing daily reports of cases and deaths instead going to weekly ones, but now with that positivity rate at 15%, some critics say those daily reports need to come back to help better track the spread. jericka? >> manny, thank you. breaking overnight, the olympics host city of tokyo reported its highest ever daily number of new coronavirus cases. the confirmed total of more than 2800 new cases surpasses a previous record set back in january. japan's prime minister is out with new advice for sports fans who have been gathering to watch the games. lucy craft is in tokyo. >> the city of tokyo has asked hospitals to add hundreds of beds and postpone surgeries to meet the surge in covid cases. only about 1/4 of japan's
7:10 am
population is vaccinated. prime minister suga is urging people to stay home. avoid unnecessary trips. there's a crowd of people lined up to take their pictures at the olympic rings so that message staying home may not resonate with many citizens. the prime minister has insisted, however, that the surge in cases is not a problem for the games. doctors, of course, say the games are partly to blame for the surge. for "cbs this morning," lucy craft, tokyo. >> everybody wants to get that picture. simone biles dropped out of team competition after one vault, will play no further part in the event due to a medical issue. we have this heartbreaking news. jamie, good morning. what happened to simone? >> reporter: good morning, a shocking turn of events for the gymnastics star, simone biles. she pulled out of the team competition. we know she completed one vault, huddled with a trainer, left the
7:11 am
floor, then came back. in a statement the team says it is due to a medical issue. >> she's putting o career. lydia jacoby is going to win gold for the united states. >> the shock on her face said it all, the win in the 100 meter breast stroke was maybe as unexpected as the journey to get to stotokyo. she's the first olympic swimmer from alaska. there's only one olympic size pool in the entire state. back in her hometown, fans were jumping out of their seats, cheering her historic swim, her parents could barely contain the joy of the win. >> i don't think anyone knows what she's going through now, it is unheard of. >> former bronze medallist jessica hardy has known the family for years, even visited them in alaska five years ago.
7:12 am
>> i am definitely having a hard time holding back tears every time thinking about her. >> so sweet. sounds like the two of you have a special bond. can you tell me about the pink goggles? >> i sent her a pair of goggles to thank her showing me around alaska. saw a picture of her three years later racing in those. you need a new pair if racing in the same ones. i saw her in may, gave her a new pair. i am honored she has chosen to wear those. >> jacoby wasn't the only one to upset her favorite opponent. the russian team, dethroned champion ryan murray finished with a bronze. first time an american man didn't take home gold in a back stroke event since 1992. and tennis, gold medal favorite, naomi osaka, eliminated from the games in her third round match in straight sets to 42nd ranked player from the czech republic.

7:14 am
under attack from a pro-trump mob. nicole killian is with us. >> reporter: the hearing is under way. among the first to speak, republican congresswoman liz cheney. here's a portion of her remarks. >> if those responsible are not held accountable and if congress does not act responsibly, this will remain a cancer on our constitutional republic. undermining peaceful transfer of power at the heart of our democratic system. >> reporter: today's focus is on officers that have spoken publicly. this is the first time we hear from them collectively. committee members think they're a representative sample what police experienced january 6th and hope their testimony will counter attempts to try to whitewash what happened.
7:15 am
>> reporter: this morning raw unfiltered testimony is expected about the brutal battle to defend the capitol january 6th. >> i was tortured. i was beaten. i was, you know, struck with a taser numerous times at the base of my skull and i posed no threat. >> metropolitan police officer michael fanone is among the four officers testifying. as the house select committee conve convenes its first hearing investigating the attack. >> it's really an important opportunity to remind everybody about the necessity of accountability for what happened. >> wyoming republican liz cheney is one of only two republicans on the panel mocked by the head of her own party for serving. >> who is that, adam and liz? aren't they kind of like pelosi republicans? >> reporter: the war of words
7:16 am
spiralled after pelosi rejected two of mccarthy's five picks to serve on the panel. but he pulled all of them. and pelosi appointed adam kinzinger instead. >> kevin decides they want to punish liz cheney and i forgetting to the bottom, telling the truth, probably says more about them than us. >> reporter: as the select committee moves forward, some republicans want to change the narrative. >> they all attack president trump like he did when he left office and they still impeached him, same old thing. >> reporter: this comes against the backdrop of next year's midterms. the committee hasn't said how long the probe will last, but will follow the facts wherever they may lead, even if it means calling republican leader mccarthy or possibly former president trump who has blasted the panel as fake and highly partisan. >> thank you, nicole.
7:17 am

skype. >> we're glad to see you in person too, john. >> absolutely. you say these things have to happen for the schools to reopen safely, but how likely is it to keep children social distanced, keep those masks on, and have the proper ventilation that you're talking about? >> there are a few things that we've learned in the past year. one is that keeping schools open for in-person learning is enormously important. so our kids can learn, so our economy can grow, so that we can not exacerbate what are huge inequalities in our society and that it's possible to do that. we can't under estimate this virus, especially the delta variant which is highly infectious, but with a layered approach it is possible to open schools and keep kids safe. >> we've seen a number of people talking about the requirements, whether it's the health care industry. do you think teachers should be required to be vaccinated to keep these children safe? >> i think we're going to see more and more groups being mandated to be vaccinated and also sadly as the delta variant

a house committee investigating the january 6th insurrection is underway right now. the committee, established during a largely party line , investigating who and what led to the deadly attack on the capitol. this morning four police officers are recounting their experiences from that day. the committee has seven democrats and two republicans appointed by house speaker, nancy pelosi. and pelosi rejected two of republican choices and he pulled five. liz cheney was one of 10 house republicans who voted to impeach former president trump after the attack. why are you defying the gop leadership to participate in this investigation? >> look, i think some things must be above politics. getting to the bottom of what happened on january 6th, making
8:06 am
sure the american people have all the details of what led to that attack and happened on that day, doing everything we need to preserve and protect theconsont to insure that kind of attack never happens again and make sure people are held accountable. i believe my duty and oath to the competition is very clear and i think we all have to play a role in making sure it doesn't happen again. >> it's technically bipartisan but a lot of your gop members didn't want this to happen. does this feel surreal that a mob attacks the capitol and a large part of people don't want to investigate this? >> it feels sad, angany. you look at what many, almost all of my colleagues said about this attack in the days just after, it was clear they all
8:07 am
understood then what had happened, the consequences, they understood how grave it was, that we had had an attack on the capitol while we were counting electoral votes. they understand how itant it was no help came, the president did not send help while the attack was underway. those were things everybody understood and said publicly in the days after the attack. what, to me, is sad is how many's views have changed and how many are now playing politics with the most serious attack on our capitol since 1814. >> they do seem to have selected amnesia. why do you think that is? >> you know, you'd have to ask them, gale. i just think that it is not worthy of these offices we hold. when you're elected to office, when you take the oath, your obligation and responsibility, above all else, is to protect the constitution. which people putting politics ahead of that
8:08 am
is, to me, a dangerous sign for the nation. and it's something that -- those of us that recognize and understand it's wrong need to stand up and make sure we do our duty. >> is it personally painful for you and hard to do your job when so many people in your own party are working so publicly against you? >> no, look, i don't think about it that way. i think about the four brave heroes we're going to see this morning, for example. the video we're going to see that demonstrates what they did to protect us, to defend us, to defend our constitutional function. that's what i think about. and i think about my kids and the future and our duty to make sure we protect this republic and hand it to them. those are the things i think we all need to be focussed on and our individual obligation is above all else. >> some republicans want this focus to be on the democrats.
8:09 am
in fact, one of your colleagues said that there were intelligence reports that the leadership of theapolic were aware of. what do you make of this blame almost being shifthink w nd to k at all of these issues. if you look at the report from the senate committee, that was bipartisan, it identified a number of intelligence failings on that day. and insuring this doesn't happen again means we have to look at both what happens, why the capitol was not defended and protected with the resources it should have been. but at the end of the day, we had a mob attempt to invade the capitol, did invade the capitol in an attempt to stop us from counting electoral votes. the idea we can look away from that or white wash it is really disgraceful in my view. >> you've been attacked by your own party. dol have a rca party d you a
8:10 am
and have you or are you considering challenging, perhaps, former president trump for the presidential nomination? >> you know, i am a conservative republican. first time i voted was in 1984 for ronald reagan. i believe this nation needs a strong republican party. we need two strong parties. we need a republican party that can win based on ideas and substance. but we cannot be a party that embraces insurrection or the big lies. we have to tell our votethers truth and we have to stand for principals and substance and engage in the battle that way. the partisan attacks that are coming right now, they're childish and they really do reflect a lack of, eeth arlack of understanding or an attempt to cover up what happened that day and why it's so important for us to get to the bottom of a run for

8:12 am
that's something we haven't seen, certainly since the civil war in this nation. this is an unprecedented moment. >> don'tia want to say come on, men and women, put on your big boy pants and tell the truth, instead of leaving you by yourself? >> the numbers of people who will stand up for the truth, i wish there were more, but it doesn't effect the rightness of doing this and it doesn't effect my duty. and i do think it's very important. it's important for voters, as they're watching this unfold, to think of the kind of representation they want and to think of the gravity of the issues this country's facing and having leaders who will rise to that challenge and leaders who will deal with these issues seriously. >> congresswoman,

sleep disruptions are a problem. there is an increase in sleep problems since the pandemic started. a sleep specialist, we like that, michael bruce joins us to discuss. michael, you remember in the very beginning, this pandemic changed everything upside down. people couldn't remember what day of the week it was.
8:20 am
things all seemed to run together. why are we seeing an increase in sleep problems now? >> you know, it's interesting. so first of all, always happy to see you, gayle. it's interesting to see what's going on these days. one of the things we know now is people are off schedule quite a bit since the pandemic not having to go to work on time and things like that. that's really shifted a circadian rhythm. the other big thing is people aren't moving a lot. sleep is recovery. if we want to recover, we have to recover from some thing and if we're not moving around a lot, that could be a problem as well. also, we've seen a dramatic increase in both caffeine consumption as well as alcohol consumption both of which have dramatic effects on our sleep. it's not particularly surprising that we' s difficulties. the good news is we know what those difficulties are and we have some ideas in how to fix them. >> so what should we do,
8:21 am
michael? i tried melatonin, didn't work, didn't help. what can we do? >> so first of all, let's talk about melatonin for a quick second. melatonin is not a sleeping pill. it's something that changes your circadian rhythms. great for jet lag but not necessarily for what we're talking about here. one of the first things i tell people to do is stick to a solid sleep schedule. if you don't know what a good sleep schedule is for you go to prono you can learn what your sleep schedule needs to be. the second thing is be active. 20 minutes a day you can walk around, get outside, get some sunshine. it's going to help you out. another is stopping caffeine by 2 p.m. a lot of people say oh, my gosh, i don't know if i can handle that. you want to slow down your caffeine by 2 because it has a six to eight hour half-life and could be affecting you later on. with alcohol there's a big
8:22 am
difference between going to sleep and passing out, right? >> yes. >> you want to avoid the passing out. stop alcohol about three hours before bed. if you follow these four rules, i can almost guarantee you you're going to snap your sleep right back into shape. >> michael bruise, thank you so much.
