7:00 am
watching kpix5 news this morning. >> don't forget the news continues all day. cbs this morning good morning to our viewers in the west, welcome to "cbs this morning." it's tuesday, august 10th. i'm tony dokoupil. covid rates soar among children. why some state leaders are trying to ban mask requirements and some are masking up anyways. cbs news got exclusive access to a border shelter for migrants who test positive for the coronavirus. another challenge for local officials in a part of the country where the delta variant is already driving a surge in covid cases. and a surprising twist in the case against new york governor andrew cuomo accused of sexually harassing multiple women. how a leader of the time's up movement got caught up in the
7:01 am
scandal. >> your world in 90 seconds. anybody that goes near a child in school, teachers, people who work in the school, if they're eligible to be vaccinated, they need to be vaccinated. >> the troubling increase in children. >> doctors reporting the biggest spike since the start of the pandemic. >> new york governor andrew cuomo remains defiant as state lawmakers take new steps towards impeachment. >> the attorney general's report which everyone is relying on got it wrong. there are omissions. taliban militants have captured a six provincial afghan capital as u.s. forces pulled out. the u.s. senate set to vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill and they believe it will pass in the senate. >> it is big, bold change, the kind of change america thirsts for. >> one of jeffrey epstein's longtime accusers suing prince andrew saying he sexually assaulted her when she was 17. a hiker sees this moose and decides to get close to it.
7:02 am
bad idea. all that matters, a runner made it onto the field during a pro soccer game. he is only 2 years old. his mom sliding to make the tackle. >> he was quick. that right there is is mom instincts. she was right behind me. >> on "cbs this morning." guess what, the rock showers three times a day. >> dwayne described his routine, shower, cold, when i roll out of bed, shower warm after my workout before work, shower hot after i get home from work. face wash, body wash, exfoliate ad because he's the rock, his loofah is a hay bale. s. >> though morning's eye opener presented by progressive. >> going through body wash by the crate. >> exactly. >> what about that little boy? >> reminded me of teddy. >> mom caught him.
7:03 am
impressive speed. >> pretty quick. welcome to "cbs this morning." we are going to begin unfortunately with an alarming spike in coronavirus cases among children. in just the last week the u.s. reported nearly 94,000 new pediatric covid cases. that's a 143% increase from two weeks ago and it's the highest number of pediatric cases reported since way back in february and all of it comes as the fight escalates over republican led efforts to protect measures like mask mandates in schools although some are defying those orders and omar villafranca is there. good morning to you. what's the situation there? >> reporter: good morning. classes at this elementary school actually started yesterday. here in texas governor greg abbott signed an order banning mask mandates in school but kiski
7:04 am
kiski kiski kiski kisses -- with cases on the ride some are challenging that. when all 145,000 dallas public school students return to class next week, they'll be required to wear masks. that's because school superintendent michael hinojosa issued a temporary mask mandate monday in defiance of governor greg abbott. >> we are now in a dangerous situation and so the governor needs to run the state and i need to run the district and as the chief executive officer i'm doing what i believe is in the best interest of the school district at this time. >> reporter: across texas average daily covid cases jumped more than 150% in the last two week. at texas children's hospital nearly 1,000 kids have tested positive for covid in the last week, more than 35 children are hospitalized. the most that they've treated throughout the pandemic. dr. jim is the pediatrician in chief. >> it is a tenuous time. we are looking forward to more school districts opening in the next two weeks.
7:05 am
and so it's reasonable to assume that this wave or surge will continue. >> reporter: in katy, texas, outside houston school officials are complying with the governor's order and not requiring masks in school. >> you guys are doing great. >> reporter: that's frustrated lee nelson whose two children, ashley and hope start classes next week. >> everybody wants to be mask-free but we can't be until we put in the work. especially for children. we're not on an even playing feel. under 12 children are still ineligible for vaccines and without that children are defenseless. >> reporter: nelson's youngest child hope is at increased risk due to asthma and other underlying conditions. >> i don't want to end up very sick. i don't want to end up in the er and definitely don't want to end up dead. >> reporter: late last night the school district voted to have masks in schools. the houston independent school
7:06 am
district, the state's largest district will vote later on this week on a mask mandate. we reached out to texas governor greg abbott for comment but he did not get back to us. >> all right, omar, thank you very much. starting next month the covid vaccine will be included on the list of medical requirements for service members. weijia jiang is there and it was president biden who directed this. >> reporter: good morning. you're right. now he says that the country is still on wartime footing when it comes to fighting covid-19 and that protection from the virus will allow the military force to operate anywhere in the world. in a new memo obtained by cbs news lloyd austin said he would seek the president's approval no later than mid-september or as soon as it is fully approved by the fda. according to the pentagon 73% of active duty personnel have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 62% are fully
7:07 am
vaccinated. louisiana congressman clay higgins who served in the u.s. army criticized the move. in an open letter to secretary austin higgins wrote, biological threats come and go whereas america is forever and this is still america, good sir, freedom matters but the military already requires many other vaccinations, service members who refuse to get vaccinated could be reprimanded or punished but a pentagon spokesperson said it is premature to talk about any potential consequences, dana. >> all right, weijia, thank you. this morning the senate is expected to pass a major item on president biden's to do list, a roughly $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. the measure which has bipartisan support includes $550 billion in spending for things like roads, bridge, broadband internet, public transit and electric utilities. senate democrats also plan to introduce an ambitious new
7:08 am
$3.5 trillion budget blueprint. this would be the biggest, passenger of america's social safety net in decades. it does face stiff opposition from republicans. new york state assembly speaker says he will make no deals with governor andrew cuomo who faces possible impeachment after accusations of sexual harassment. pressure on the governor to resign has increased after one of his 11 public accusers spoke with us in albany's times union newspaper. brittany commisso says he groped her at the governor's mansion last year and jericka duncan has covered this story for months with us now. jericka, good morning. how soon could the governor be impeached. >> reporter: the chairman of the state judiciary committee said there could be a vote on articles of impeachment within several weeks. it's a long process here. the committee is reviewing evidence and interviews from the attorney general's investigation before lawmakers decide if they will draw up articles of impeachment against the governor.
7:09 am
>> the governor's clearly lost the confidence of the majority members of the new york state assembly. >> reporter: the judiciary committee met monday to discuss potential articles of impeachment for sexual misconduct against governor andrew cuomo. also being considered whether the governor lied about the number of covid-related nursing home deaths. his possible use of state resources for more than $5 million book deal and whether he prioritized testing for family and friends at the beginning of the pandemic. >> we anticipate that this process will be concluded very soon. next and when i say very soon i'm speaking about several weeks. >> reporter: assembly majority leader christy peoples spokes is one of many who have called on the governor to resign although she says he deserves due process. >> it's got to be done correctly and right. >> reporter: it comes as an explosive report from the state's attorney general
7:10 am
concluded the governor sexually harassed multiple people and violated federal and state laws. in an interview with cbs, brittany commisso identified in the report as alr bn assembchme >> woulde t appropr f e governor? is it enough if he were to just resign? >> i do think he needs to resign and i also do think that he needs to seek counseling. i do think that he needs professional help. i do think that he, you know, he has many things that he needs to work through. >> reporter: governor cuomo has denied all wrongdoing and has remained largely out of sight. his most trusted aid melissa derosa resigned sunday and in a letter to colleagues she said she's forever grateful to the governor. the governor has until friday to submit evidence in his defense to the judiciary committee even
7:11 am
if the governor does resign he could still be impeached. if convicted could be barred from ever holding state office again. tony. >> thank you very much. for context let's bring in culture and gender contributor jodi kantor for "the new york times" and, oh, by the way, her reporting helped inspire the me too movement. jodi, good morning to you. how many years have we had you to talk about this? >> i think we're coming up on the fourth anniversary. >> governor cuomo, his strategy is to deny, deny, deny, buy himself time. what do you make of that? >> i think politically he has a very difficult exit strategy and on the one hand the time may advantage him but on the other more and more and more is coming out, and, you know, that report that was released by the attorney general last week contains so much information and we're continuing to see the implications of all of that play out including for time's up which is the organization that was founded to combat these
7:12 am
problems in the wake of the weinstein scandal and yet had as one of its closest allies governor andrew cuomo. >> that's what's so interesting. they're all different in their way but governor cuomo appeared to be a champion of the me too movement and ally of victims and now he's allegedly creating victims in his wake. how do people reconcile it? >> that's one of the hardest things to fathom. we've all heard a lot of the me too allegations over the years but what is so distinct about these is that as this was exploding, as there was a global reckoning, the governor of new york which was ground zero as we know for this reckoning was allegedly committing the same offenses and when you look at the dates, we lined up the report against the public record, the dates are astonishing. there was a day two years ago almost to the day in august 2019 where on one day the governor signed really important legislation protecting women.
7:13 am
we're talking about landmark sexual harassment protections that women sought for years. the next day, he allegedly continued his pursuit of that state trooper. >> jodi, what has to change? because there are laws that are being enacted, but is it beyond that? is it more of a cultural issue that has to change so somebody like governor cuomo isn't committing offenses like this? >> i don't think anyone was under the illusion that the harvey weinstein story or me too reckoning was going to solve these problems, but i think that this is prompting a deeper layer of searching about whether we do have the tools in place. if you look at -- part of what's fascinating about that report it is an anatomy of the governor's office and how it functioned, right? even in this very official work environment there weren't effective ways to make complaints. the attorney general says people were scared to constantly being retaliated against so all these years we're still asking the
7:14 am
basic questions do women feel they have a safe way to report and, you know, another terrifying thing about the story is how close it came to remaining secret. i mean, look at the powerful interview that was on this show yesterday. if you look at the time line, a lot of these women originally thought they were going to take these secrets to the grave even in the me too era. >> how many stories have gone to the grave or will be kept secret regardless. >> yeah, you mentioned already, roberta kaplan for time's up who was advising governor cuomo about all of this. explain to people who may not understand, time's up is supposed to be in women's corners. >> so, this is the really complicated interesting situation. time's up founded to fight these problems, who becomes one of their biggest allies? governor andrew cuomo. this organization gets really substantive stuff done with the governor in the course of doing that, they develop a
7:15 am
relationship that gets him -- that gets them in trouble, not because they were working with him on legislation, there's nobody who really thinks that was the wrong thing to do but because once these allegations started to dribble out, time's up got a little bit too involved in advising essentially roberta kaplan and tina tchen, the head gave some feedback on a kind of op-ed letter that is now coming under question in the a.g. report and also roberta kaplan who is this powerhouse progressive attorney, she helped get gay marriage established, it turns out that one of her firm's clients is melissa derosa, the former cuomo aide, she resigned a few days ago who has now been accused of helping smear one of the women, so people are asking time's up, which side were you on in this whole thing? >> remarkable. you said back in 2019 in the wake of me too everything has
7:16 am
changed but nothing has changed. probably feel the same way. jodi kantor, thank you very much. >> thank you. this morning a top u.s. envoy is telling the taliban to stop their military offensive and take control of afghanistan. taliban fighters captured another city yesterday, the sixth major city they've seized ahead of the final withdrawal of u.s. troops. charlie d'agata reepthsly returned from a trip there and the return of the taliban is, unfortunately, starting to look inevitable. >> well, vlad, i.d. hard to see what's going to stop it. they were rampaging across the rural areas stopping short of these city centers around them. the thought then they would wait until all u.s. forces leave by the end of the month before launching a large-scale offensive but as we can see that's already under way. the takeover of the northern city of counknduz, raise their ,

[ speaking foreign language ] "we are so exhausted" this evacuee said. it is the biggest strategic and symbolic trophy in a rapid-fire string of victories that have seen city centers fall like dominos. six provincial capitals and counting. in some cases afghan cases are folding without a fight. we are told one taliban tactic is to persuade local elders to convince afghan soldiers to drop their weapons rather than face certain defeat and death even giving them cash to get back home. in the past, u.s. ground forces have worked with afghan commanders to dislodge taliban fighters from city centers. this time the u.s. military has
7:18 am
made clear america will not waiver from the pullout plan. >> this is their country. these are their military forces. these are their provincial capitals, their people to defend and will come down to the leadership they're willing to ex-cudd at this moment. >> reporter: in the absence of that afghan leadership the white house and the world now have to decide on how much they're willing to tolerate from the taliban in terms of civil want casualties, in terms of threatening kabul before they're willing to intervene or decide to let the afghan government go it alone. tony. >> what is the mission if there's a mission? charlie d'agata in london, thank you very much. ahead the lawsuit just filed against prince andrew by a woman who claims he was part of her alleged abuse in the

one of jeffrey epstein's long-time accusers is now suing brittain's prince andrew. the lawyers for virginia guiffre said she was trafficked to andrew and abused by him when she was 17 years old. guiffre said, quote, i am holding prince andrew accountable for what he did to me. the powerful and rich are not
7:40 am
exempt for their actions. nikki batiste is here. >> virginia guiffre said the decision to take legal action did not come lightly because she knows it will subject her to further attacks by prince andrew and surrogaes. in the end she said if she didn't take this step she would be letting down her family and other victims everywhere. in a new lawsuit virginia guiffre seen here standing next to prince andrew alleges she was forced to engage in sexual acts with him on three separate occasions. according to court documents guiffre was given implied threats by jeffrey epstein, ghislaine maxwell and/or prince andrew. she feared death or physical injury to herself and other repercussions for disobeying because of their powerful connections, wealth and authority.
7:41 am
david boise is her attorney. >> the fact of the matter is it's overwhelming that prince andrew was with her. you have the testimony of virginia, the testimony of other people, photographic evidence. >> the lawsuit claims andrew knew guiffre was 17 years old but went ahead for the purpose of gratifying his sexual desires. >> for the record, is there any way you could have had sex with that young woman or any young woman trafficked by jeffrey epstein in any of his residences? >> no. >> reporter: in 2019 prince andrew told bbc news night he didn't ever remember meeting the teen. >> nobody can prove whether or not that photograph has been doctored but i don't recollect that photograph ever being taken. >> and you don't recollect having your hand around her waist in ghislaine maxwell's house, on any occasion, even if it was a different date? >> i'm terribly sorry. if i as a member of the royal

>> showing them going for their first dip, that still looks like me now. when i'm in the water trying to like -- >> is this like you guys skating? >> we did the skating. >> you're not a good swimmer? >> i'm a pretty good swimmer. >> that's you? >> yeah. i do a lot of doggy paddle. >> they don't need a floaty. >> we're supposed to go skateboarding next aren't we? wasn't that the plan? >> i may put a kibosh. >> marian said the same thing. i still have the groupon she's still mad at me for buying that. >> there's an age. >> let's make pasta or something like that. >> hello, fellow youths. all right. let's turn to the growing problem of plastic pollution across the world and a pioneering way of dealing with it. the great pacific garbage patch in the pacific ocean contains plastic waste twice the area of the state of texas. kenya is one of the many countries contributing to this pollution. hundreds of tons of plastic
8:35 am
waste are created every day just in nairo by, the capitol. deborah patta met with a young woman who's come up with one potential solution. >> reporter: this is dundora, about 30 acres of waste. that's the equivalent of 22 football fields despite a pioneering plastic ban, kenya is still drawning in it. and whilst most people look at this and think it's an insurmountable plastic mountain, one young woman saw a way to move that mountain. >> there are days in kenya where you can actually walk on water. this river is choking with so much plastic it's formed an unsinkable foundation. a disturbing health hazard for everyone living here except this young woman. >> so i get excited when i see waste because i know that's life for us. >> reporter: the fac intrigued .
8:36 am
>> i convert it to building blocks. >> reporter: in 201 kenya outlawed single use plastic bags but it's still everywhere, clogging drains, polluting rivers, contaminating animal feed. some of it ends up here in nairobi's landfill. it was supposed to be closed down 20 years ago but every day waste pick jurors trudge through the rancid trash sifting for plastic. plastic that matee had to figure out how to turn into bricks. when you made your first brick, how was that? >> oh! whew. that was the best day. it took us about nine months just to make one brick. >> reporter: but one brick wasn't enough. no problem for a woman who likes to get her hands pretty much everything else dirty.
8:37 am
so she built a machine to mass produce the plastic bricks. first the waste is sorted to remove rubble and metals. >> then you've got to bake it? >> exactly. if you know how to make cookies, this is just making cookies. >> reporter: i could make a brick, you're saying? >> exactly. >> reporter: the boiling mixture is molded into building blocks, as many as 2,000 a day. 35% cheaper than standard bricks and up to 7 times stronger. pretty impressive. >> yeah, it doesn't break. >> reporter: currently matee's bricks are only used for pathways in small households, but she wants to target big construction companies next. compounding kenya's fight against plastic is that two years ago the u.s. exported more than 1 billion pounds of plastic waste to 96 nations including kenya and now wants to make the shipment of plastic a condition of a proposed trade deal.
8:38 am
gre greenpeace activist amos wemanya believes this will be a problem. >> it will be more of a problem if you allow this to be used as a way of dumping plastic waste on the african country. >> matee agrees countries should keep their own waste in their own backyard. she plans to make good on the triple threat. >> the more we recycle plastic, the more we produce affordable housing, the more we can reuse. >> reporter: which means there's no time to get too comfortable. for "cbs this morning," deborah patta, nairobi, kenya. time is running out. we have to find solutions. this is one of them. >> we can use those bricks here in america. what a salesperson that woman
8:39 am
is. scientist and salesperson. >> and the excitement over it. you can't help but join her in some of that. >> great use. coming up, what do rihanna, kanye west and alicia keys have in common? they have all been cover stars for the icon issue of harp perfect's bazaar.

first on "cbs this morning," we're excited to reveal this year's cover star for the special icon issue of harper's bazaar. it is, drumroll please, 28-time winning grammy award winning entertainer beyonce knowles-carter. god, she's gorgeous. it has a revealing interview with her. the multi-platinum singer talks about the importance of self-care, keeping her mental health intact and feeling the pressure to succeed as a black woman from a young age. she says, quote, in this business so much of your life does not belong to you unless you fight for it. i've fought to protect my sanity and my privacy because the quality of my life depended on it. the editor in chief of harp perfect's bazaar, samir nasr joins us now. this is amazing. >> good morning. >> yeah.
8:44 am
>> congratulations. >> thank you. >> yeah to beyonce. she doesn't do a lot of interviews and some of the things i just mentioned there all jump out at me, especially this idea that at a young age she felt this pressure. what stood out from some of that conversation that really may surprise some people? >> i think there's so many moments that, you know, where she really reveelts, you know, intimate, personal details. two of the ones that really struck me the most, first when she was little she didn't speak. she was very quiet because she was just a sponge, sort of taking things in and observing the world around her. i found that was really interesting, especially for someone who's such a, you know, outward -- this force of nature. but the other thing she shares is at 19 she was in a place where people were sending her clothes. her career had begun and she realized, you know, a lot of things didn't fit her and she started thinking, well, wait, this is maybe me.
8:45 am
maybe my body is wrong? and then she stepped back from that, remembered that the women she always idolized growing up in her mother's salon were beautiful, curvy spectacular black women and that experience, she went and wrote buddilicious and she realized she could take things that were challenging for her and turn them into sort of inspirational moments for the world. >> pain and confusion can lead to progress. >> yeah. i know she talks about mental health, too, which has been so much in the headlines with simone biles, obviously the olympics and naomi osaka. so important, again, this is another audience that she's reaching. >> forget that, you know, right now we're in this moment where we have the example of naomi, we have the exampl of simone who are showing us, leading us that you can step back and prioritize yourself but we've always had beyonce as the example. you know, early on, again, i think it was in her 20s she
8:46 am
realized, that's another thing she reveals is she realized the power of no. the thing is when you come from a marginalized community, when you've worked so hard for success or recognition, no is sort ever counter intuitive. you think you need to be saying yes, yes, yes. you know, i think now with social media and all of those pressures i think we're seeing more and more examples of these super stars prioritizing their own mental health because you have to hold something back. you have to take care of your wellness. >> you know, so beyonce is an icon but can we also celebrate you? >> yes. >> i was going to say the same thing. >> guys, guys -- >> you are a superstar because you are the first person of color to take -- the first woman of color to take the reins at harper's bazaar. one of the things that i love that you've said is you've kept throughout the entirety of your career, which has been
8:47 am
illustrious, you've kept the mentality of an intern. can you break that down for us? >> i think i'm always in the process of becoming really. i'm curious about the world. i'm curious about my environment. i want to learn and grow and it's just that idea of i'm in this role but there's so much for me to learn from the people around me. there's still people on my team who have more expertise in so many areas that i don't have and so what a privilege. you know, the joy of what i do is team work. what a privilege to be able to learn from the people that i'm surrounded with. >> one of the things did you was style beyonce for the photo shoot on the cover. let's put those pictures up. if you could talk to us about what inspired you to create this look? >> yes. we worked with beyonce's personal stylist marne. it was a fun level of collaboration and so this -- the inspiration behind these photos, we started with obviously she's revealing her ivy park
8:48 am
collection with this cover and that was inspired by her texas roots and the rodeo and specifically black cowboys. so we wanted to bring those pieces in to this shoot and mix it with the latest from fall fashion. we thought about rodeo but we also thought about the arc of her career. 30 years. she's come back to harp perfect's bizarre. >> which is crazy to think. >> yes. she has not been on the cover for ten years. the eve of her 40th birthday and we thought of the elements. we thought about, you know, the earth, the sun and air and playing with those. >> are we getting new music from her? did she reveal any of that? is there a drumroll? >> yes. yes. she does also reveal that. she doesn't say when, but there's new music coming. >> wow. >> very happy. samira nasr, thank you for being here. >> can't wait to read the rest
