tv New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN March 7, 2020 5:00am-6:00am PST
a race to trace coronavirus infections. more than 3500 passengers and screw, stranded. >> infected, it's taking the nation as a whole is low. but that could change. >> this is like the flu on steroids. >> we trust in a matter of weeks that the coronavirus test will be broadly available to the public. >> anybody that needs a test, they're there. they have the tests and the tests are beautiful. for 2020 democrats it's now effectively a two-man race. >> this campaign is not just a political campaign. it is a movement of millions of people. >> it's a campaign!
and they said that super tuesday would be over, well, maybe it is for the other guy. >> well, good morning to you on this saturday. we're grateful for your company. i'm christi paul. >> i'm amara walker in for victor blackwell. this morning, 3500 people are stuck on a crew ship after a case of coronavirus was confirmed on board. 21 of the 46 people tested on the "grand princess" have tested positive. >> a passenger tells cnn, a helicopter, take a look at this, airlifted a passenger back to san francisco for medical attention. cnn reached out to the cruise ship's parent company for details. haven't heard yet. but across the u.s., take a look at the nap here, at least 333 cases of covid-19. states like utah, connecticut, hawaii, they're seeing their first cases. >> a total of 17 people have
died. the majority in washington state. concerns about the virus are leading to high-profile events being cancelled including the south by southwest in texas. and a danger to elderly and people with severe medical conditions, urging them to stay home as much as possible. >> here with us, cnn health reporter jacqueline howard is with us. and i know that there are a lot of people sitting at home thinking, do i take my trip? do i not take my trip? how do i get through my day right now? they might not be really concerned, but they're concerned enough to make some changes. how dangerous is this right now? is there a good day for that? >> that's a great question. like you said, everyone is asking this question. the answer really depends on your age. your risk is higher as you age. with older age.
it is advised to, if you can, try to stay home, you know, if you're able to avoid large crowds. if you do have to travel, even at the airport, avoid crowds. kind of like sit in your own corner while you can, while you're waiting for a flight. that's why, we're advising the travel does depend on your age. for anyone, keep an eye out on the cdc travel notices. if you're traveling internationally, make sure you're aware what the notice is, or whatever your destination is if it's on the list of notices and what it is for your recommendation. that's really the bottom line for domestic travel and national travel. >> we were just mentioning the number of cases and how it keeps going up in the united states. break that down for us one more time. we do expect these numbers to continue to rise, especially with more testing becoming available. but the trump administration is saying there shore up to 1 million tests available soon. >> exactly. the numbers are changing.
as of now, there are more than 330 cases, specifically, 332 u.s. cases and more than half the states. we saw the math earlier. morning half the states, 28 states are reporting at least one case. but nationally, the state that's leading in cases is washington state. and in particular, going back to how we were talking about age, there's a nursing home in washington state that's reported a number of cases. and there's a lot of concern around long-term care facilities. and how they're handling the outbreak right now because of increased risk for older adults. >> no doubt. >> jacqueline, we appreciate it so much. jacqueline howard for us. >> thank you. >> thank you. as we mentioned at the top of the show, there's at least 21 people aboard this "grand princess" who have tested positive. put yourself in this situation. none of them knew about that, until they heard it on tv. >> among those tested, 46 persons were swabbed, 21 of
those on the ship tested positive for the coronavirus. 24 tested negative. one test was inconclusive. again, let me say 21 individuals on the "grand princess" tested positive. among those were 19 crew mibs and two passengers. >> and it wasn't until after vice president pence's remarks that the captain of the ship addressed the passengers, apologizing for the fact that they found out by watching tv. >> vice president mike pence announced that 21 people have tested positive for covid-19. you may have heard this on the news while you were in your room. and we apologize, but we were not given advance notice of this
announcement by the u.s. federal government. >> here's what one passenger told cnn's erin burnett? >> i'm like, excuse me, i thought the passengers should be notified first. i immediately called to the passenger services and said you better get the captain aware of what's going on. he did come on ten minutes later. the fact that we weren't told first made us quite upset and angry. >> understandably. the right now, this is the only cruise ship quarantined off the coast. this one off the coast of california again. the entire cruise ship industry is being looked at. >> vice president mike pence and head of the task force plans to meet with cruise ship companies today. sarah, a lot of people are confused about the availability of testing after what the president ted at the cdc. look, anyone who needs a test today, you'll get a test by tomorrow or wherever you want
it, whereas vice president mike pence has been saying and admitting, i don't think we're going to be able to meet the demand with these testing kits. what's the truth? >> reporter: yeah, amara, we've been seeing these mixed signals from the white house when it comes to the availability of the coronavirus test. and that's reflective of the broader disconnect in tone between president trump and vice president mike pence. you've seen vice president mike pence be a little more measured, setting more realistic expectations about what we're likely to see in the coronavirus outbreak. president trump is striking a lot more optimistic tone talking about this, painting a rosier picture about how the country is dealing with the coronavirus. now that trip the president took yesterday to the cdc that was briefly called off and then put back on his schedule. he said yesterday, anyone who needs a coronavirus test can get it, take a listen. >> i think importantly, anybody
right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test, they're there. they have the tests. and the tests are beautiful. anybody that needs a test gets a test. >> reporter: now, i want you to take a listen to what vice president mike pence had said earlier about the administration at this moment not currently being prepared for what they anticipate will be future demands for coronavirus testing. >> we don't have enough tests today to meet what we anticipate will be the demand going forward. >> reporter: and then the white house has said it planned to have 1 million tests available by the end of this week. a spokesperson for the vice president told cnn that they were on track to hit that target by the weekend. >> okay. sarah, i want to ask you, there's so much going on between the election and coronavirus and now we hear the president is changing his chief of staff.
what are you hearing about this change? >> reporter: it's a big move, christi, the president replacing his act of chief of staff mick mulvaney. mulvaney was never able to shake that acting title with congressman mike meadows. the president had started to lose confidence in mulvaney. cnn had reported that mulvaney was increasingly out of the loop on big issues. but this is a really notable shift because meadows is someone who doesn't have a ton of executive experience. but he is someone who is extremely political, and has been a close informal adviser of the president. so this formalizing mulvaney's advisory role. but it also gives the president a very political change into his re-election race later in the year, christi. >> sarah, always appreciate your heads-up. sarah westwood for us, thank you. so, as we talk about the coronavirus, the outbreak is
putting into focus the strain that could be coming into america's health care system. >> our next guest warns if we end one a widespread outbreak, these big issues will not even bundle up. they would explode into much more plain view. joining us from the kaiser family foundation, an expert on how public policy can be used to fight health epidemics. you're the perfect person to talk to this morning. i appreciate you joining us. first of all, are you concerned about the health care system in america, being burdened once the tests become available? because i think there is a lot of concern, especially for people who don't have health insurance. i think the number is 28 million americans don't have health insurance. will they have to pay for please coronavirus testing kits? >> yeah. i think this is quickly becoming a story about the american health care system and insurance coverage. and if the outbreak worsens, this will be top of mind for
most americans. already, there's a lot of concern about the outbreak, the disease itself, the virus itself, but out health care system is potentially going to be strained. a particular issue for those not able to seek care because they don't have a place to go or worried about costs. for example, the uninsured, about half don't have the usual source of care. if the advice we're hearing call your doctor and find out what you need to do, what if they don't have a doctor? i think that's a concern that could get worse. >> we know the governors of california and new york have talked about the cost. but somebody has to pick up that cost? do we have any idea what the route is and how to get there? >> there's a lot of concern over the tests. first of all, will the test be available and who will pay for it. as you mentioned, states are moving to alleviate costs to the
consumers but really it comes down to insurance coverage. does your insurance coverage require copayments. those are questions that americans are facing in in their everyday lives and this particular outbreak it going to raise them to the surface. so i think it's really unclear what that could be. >> what are your thoughts so far on the u.s. response to this outbreak? i mean, it's hard for, you know, me and many of us to understand, when you look at other countries like south korea. they've been conducting, what, 10,000 tests a day. and they've tested over 140,000. they've already had 140,000 tests. that's compared to 1500 tests in america. what's happening? this is kind of embarrassing, is it not? >> i think the big challenge, and it is a concern, is that we have not ruled out testing at the level and rate that we should. without that, we're not detecting cases so community transmission is happening. we know this. and as testing is being expanded, we're seeing more and more cases but it's been slow.
and we know from every economic and from experiences in other countries, the quicker you're able to do so and detect cases and isolate patients that are infected and keep people who might be exposed in quarantine, the more you can get ahead of this, we're behind the curve for sure. >> prognosticate what is going to happen from this point on? what is in your opinion the most dangerous aspect moving forward? >> well, i think we don't want everyone in the united states to panic but i think people are to follow good public health advice and following the information that we know. listening to public health officials is critical. we're going to see cases and communities with transmission. there are measures taken, social distancing that's happening in communities. i'm not sure we're quite prepared for that. just going back to health insurance and coverage, the issues that everyday americans are facing in their health coverage are really ones we have to grapple with for sure.
>> back to what president trump was saying, you know, anyone who needs a test will be able to get tested. if you're having symptoms of a cold, you're concerned it might be coronavirus, what are you supposed to do to get your hands on a test? if you go to your primary care doctor, are they supposed to write you an order to get a test, and if so, where do you go from there? >> very good question. if somebody is experiencing symptoms ball yo s call your pr. don't just go. if you go, you could be exposing people to the system and overburdening the system. first of all, you have to know who to call. if you were to do that, and your doctor said, yes, you should get a test. testing isn't everywhere. we're hearing lots of ant that do antidotes about people getting tested. and it's not as simple as you
have symptoms you have to get a test. we're not there yet. >> dr. jen kates, it was important to have you on. thank you for your insight. >> thank you very much. still to come, both former vice president joe biden and senator bernie sanders are in the midwest today ahead of the super tuesday two primaries. who has the edge going in. we'll discuss. ilk. i guess those cows must actually be big dogs. sit! i said sit!

for working families. >> that's senator bernie sanders addressing supporters there in michigan. he and former vice president joe biden there. 352 delegates at stake here. the battleground state here, sanders did win it, though, narrowly, that primary in 2016 against hillary clinton. let's fast forward to today. michigan will begin be that proving ground for him? to talk about it now, politics for axios, margaret talev. great to see you. before i get to 2020, i have to get to something that you can talk about specifically, the move of the white house chief of staff mick mulvaney, i understand you had a conversation with him what did he tell you? >> we did, christi, we spoke last night. he said he and mark meadows have
been friends for year, they co-founded the freedom caucus together. he said this wasn't a surprise for him. but the plenty had given him plenty of time to let him and his family and staff know about the change and he's happy for meadows. but, of course, the way the president staged this is, again, one of those things that sends enough mixed signals that everybody is talking about all of the potential factors, was the president irritated that mulvaney was out of town during the coronavirus. and all of this sort of thing, you can imagine the president under the circumstances pulling together the chief of staff and outgoing chief of staff and some celebration at the white house and introducing the change of guard. the president didn't do it that way. mulvaney saying he will stay on in transition in the next few weeks as the two friends hand.baton. >> and a position that he wanted, he's been lobbying for. >> for more than a year.
>> okay. okay. let's talk now about super tuesday part two, let's say. this coming tuesday, there's six states, idaho, mississippi, michigan. among them, michigan, of course, being the grand prize. >> yeah. >> in this particular role. we've got primaries, march 17th, the 24th, all the way to april 28th. if they don't start to whittle this down, we're going to a contested convention. how dicey could this get? >> this next contest is an important test. 9% of the delegates. it's important for two reasons. it's michigan and washington state. and michigan is going to give a glimpse of whether bernie sanders is able to hold on to that coalition of sort of labor and union voters who went with him, instead of hillary clinton last time. whether the criticisms of biden on nafta and other trade deals
is going to take hold. or when that has changed a little bit. whether some of those labor voters have gone to trump. and whether others have changed their mind about free trade. then in washington state, we'll get a much clearer sense of whether bernie sanders is able to galvanize, progressive voters, liberal voters to turn out en masse with him or joe biden will crack the western wall and get on the map. those will give us a sense of the next wave of contests, florida, ohio, really big states that will be important clues. but this contest on tuesday, between what michigan will show us and washington state, we'll get a sense whether the super tuesday contest was definitive for joe biden or a slog into the summer. >> margaret, you have an article on axios about the more than 140 women running for the house in 2020. >> yeah. >> 140 more than that ran in
2018. how much of that do you think is reflective of the fact that we had six women vying for the democratic ticket. and they're all gone by now, with the exception, we should say of tulsi gabbard? officially, she's still in. >> she's officially still in. but not by delegate predominance. look what's. happening at the presidential level what has been disappointing to a lot of women, saying when are women going to crack the glass ceiling. it was historic here and now you see republican women trying to catch up with republican women in those gains. women trying to take over the majority of the state legislatures and ramp up their numbers in congress. it's international women's day tomorrow. this month is history month for women. these are important trends to watch going forward. >> no doubt about it, at 10:00,
i'm going to be talking to marian williamson here on cnn. marv get ta margaret talev, appreciate it. for the first time in 30 years, south by southwest won't be happening in texas this month. that's one of many cancelled because of the coronavirus. the trickle-down effect and the outbreak, is next. so you should really be focusing on both and definitely at the same time. the new sensodyne sensitivity & gum gives us the dual action effect that really takes care of both our teeth sensitivity as well as our gum issues. by brushing with sensodyne sensitivity & gum at home it's giving you the relief that you need and the control that you need to take care of your oral health. and it creates a healthier environment. there's no question it's something that i would recommend.

right now, nearly 3500 people are floating off the coast of california, stuck on a cruise ship. still but that leaves 21 people infected with the coronavirus. >> earlier, cnn was given some information by a passenger on that ship who says a supply helicopter airlifted one other passenger back to san francisco for medical attention. we're going to bring you the very latest as soon as we learn more on that. back on land, the
coronavirus has continued to trek across the globe. cnn is reporting more than 101,000 cases worldwide, the epidemic has killed at least 3,400 people. >> and hundreds of high-profile events around the world and here in the states have been cancelled now. this includes the south by southwest contest in austin, texas. and arnold schwarzenegger said the fans will be limited at the armed forces this weekend. >> for those, with the spectators here, but at the same time, is a familiar sighting. >> it's been a tumultuous week with the coronavirus that expanded. the u.s. closed down but did end the week with a gain. >> cnn's alison kosik has more. >> reporter: stocks took us on
another wild ride this week, the dow made two different crazy moves but for all of the crazy ups and downs the dow managed just barely to eke out a gain. but investors continue to worry about the coronavirus outbreak. the daily selloff in the stock market could be helping to fuel panic buying in stores for supplies. everything from hand sanitizers, to toilet paper, to peanut butter. kroger has put a cap on how much you can buy of sanitation and flu-related products. home depot is limiting purchases of face masks. and at cvs and walgreens, shelves are running bare of sanitizers. costco posted a 3% bump last month that is attributed to higher demand because of concerns about the coronavirus. some economists say it's not necessarily a good thing. businesses usually prefer to manage growth to be stable and
not spike because surges in demand could impact the ability to provide supplies. and it's not just supermarkets and drugstores seeing big business these days. lot of service-based companies involved with staying at home, or working from home, agency the virus pushes more people away from their offices. the viruses are helping those businesses, getting more attention these days, home fitness peloton, video conferences zoom and netflix as people ramp up their couch potato skills. >> alison kosik, thank you. joining me now to discuss the economic impact the former president and ceo of american apparel effort wear association. good morning, rick. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> let's start with the tourism industry. anecdotally, people are hesitant about taking a cruise. as you can see, what's happening
on cruise ships, seems like these are floating incubators for viruses. a lot of people, also myself, second-guessing getting on a plane. how hard is the coronavirus hitting these industries? >> it's hitting it very hard. this is a two-edged sword for retail. we're lacking people going into the stores. you know, except if they're shopping for rice, beans, canned tuna and toilet paper. that's one part of the problem. the other part is, you know, the tourists, particularly, the tourists from asia coming to america. the average spend for a tourist is about $8,000. including hotels and food and they spend well over $1,000 on product. so retail having issues before, is having even more issues now. >> we know because of the o outbreaks weeks and weeks ago, china started closing down factories making workers stay at
home. talk about what this means to the supply chains because a lot of american companies rely on chinese manufacturing? >> yeah, the numbers on that are particularly interesting. in terms of the u.s. economy, 40% of all apparel and 65% of all footwear comes from china. there's no other place that it comes from right now. and that's a big dent on our market when we can't fill the stores and we don't have product. plus, you know, they're saying now, the factories in china are up about 80%. but they took an extra week for chinese new year. and the workers have been slow to come back. so, we have factories that are operating but they may be only operating about 70%, 80%. so, every week that we work, we're falling a little bit behind. and, you know, that plays havoc. and when you're trying to deliver product for the easter season, for mother's day, for father's day, for back to school. >> right. >> so, retail's in a bit of a
conundrum now. product is not getting to market as fast as we would like. >> but as we also heard there are companies that are benefitting like companies like clorox, purell and peloton. we're going to have to leave it there. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. we're going to share something that we're just learning, a u.s. sailor stationed in naples, italy, has tested positive for the coronavirus. this is the first case of a u.s. serviceman stationed in europe. the service member yesterday is quarantined at home. we know the u.s. military is conducting a thorough investigation to determine if any other personnel may have been exposed. anyone who came in close contact with the infected person has already been notified and is apparently in self-isolation at home. so, after dropping out of the presidential race senator elizabeth warren is facing

39 minutes past the hour, and bernie sanders is sharpening his attack against joe biden. the 121 delegates, this is the first rust belt state to vote. sanders is courting union workers. brian robinson, president of robinson republic pr is joining us now, and lillian cardona. thank you for being here. >> let's start with the new ad from bernie sanders. okay. i apologize. they don't have it. we're having some technical issues here. but it's a union member who says i've been a union autoworker since 2008.
we have it now. i'll let him tell it. go ahead. >> i've been a union autoworker since 2008. the community has been decimated by trade deal. only one candidate for president has consistently opposed every trade deal and that candidate is bernie sanders. >> the auto industry is really such a core of michigan. how potent is the trade argument here? >> i think it's really powerful. and i think it's one that bernie sanders has certainly tried to use to his advantage. and i think that's a very compelling ad. and i think what you'll see is that joe biden will come in and this is what he has been doing and will continue to do, into michigan. and in the upcoming primaries, he'll talk about how he was part of the administration that actually focused on the auto bailout. those are two competing
messages. yet, they go to the granular argument of the whole campaign, whether it's biden or sanders, they're the ones who are going to look out for union workers. they're the wins who are going to look out for working class families versus donald trump who has decimated them with trade deals that he says are protecting families. but yet, he's the one who is causing the trade conflicts all around the world that have really, i think, hurt working families and hurt union trade workers. and so this is going to be a telling primary for both of these candidates because, frankly, it is a must-win state for bernie sanders. and if joe biden wins there, i think it's going to fuel his campaign to go into the very end agency the presumed front-runner. >> i think everybody right now, is watching what elizabeth warren is going to do, democrats and republicans alike. to that, this is what she told the boston globe.
she said why would i owe anybody an endorsement? is that a question they asked everybody who else dropped out of the race? well, yes, i believe they did ask that question. brian, at the end of the maybe she's not going to endorse anybody at all and there are repercussions from that? >> well, look, we've got somebody whose most issues align with bernie sanders than joe biden. that's part of the problem she faced in the primary, is that bernie was already in the lane that she was trying to fill and he already had a base. she doesn't like him that much. there's that famous scene at the end of a debate where she just walked over at the end of a hot night saying you just called me a liar. and it may be a politically safe thing for elizabeth warren to just stay on the sideline. it would certainly be a real
clap at bernie, if she endorsed joe biden. but joe biden actually is although i would go with if i was her, if you look at his numbers in michigan, they took a big dip. in the last week -- the line is a straight-up line. in taking the lead over sanders. >> yeah. >> and maria's right, if biden pulls that out, it is a nail in the coffin for the sanders campaign. >> brian and maria are agreeing on something, first of all, brian, you mentioned hillary clinton, she did speak to fareed zakaria, we'll see more of that later. but i want to play something about what she said about bernie sanders. >> if bernie sanders is the democratic nominee, will you campaign for him. >> i will support the nominee of the democratic party. >> will you campaign for him? >> i don't know if he'll ask me to campaign for him, fareed. i have no idea what he's
thinking about for a general election campaign. >> how do you think effective, maria, she might be for bernie sanders? >> i think she would be incredibly effective for either bernie sanders or joe biden. look, there's no question that hillary clinton is still an incredibly admired person, not just in the democratic primary, but all over the country. and she would be somebody who would go out there and focus on how dangerous donald trump is. what he has done to our country in the last four years. how we cannot afford another four years of donald trump in the oval office. and that is a very compelling message going into this 2020 race. regardless of who is the democratic nominee. and one of the things that sigh think republicans should be incredibly afraid of and that donald trump should be shaking in his boots about is the record turnout that we've had in these primaries thus far, christi.
we have exploded our numbers. and that, to me, indicates the massive energy and mobilization and, frankly, need there is out there, not just for democrats but for independents and disaaffected republicans to get republicans out of the white house. >> there are many people who voted for donald trump last time around and i don't want to do that again. how worried should republicans be. >> christi, they said that in 2016, how many people were on tv the monday before the election, saying hillary clinton is the next president. there's no pathway to the white house for donald trump. he defied those expectations by one significant win in the electoral college. you're going to see maybe some of that same phenomenon helping here. people who fully intend to vote for him but aren't going to pell pollsters on the phone. you may be seeing that. >> but the difference, brian, we
have now had four years of donald trump in the white house and there are people who understand just how dangerous that has been. >> there are still people in his base that support him. if they're not happy who secures the ticket on the left, we have no idea what they're going to do. i'm sorry we're out of time, thank you. for a full interview with hillary clinton what fareed zakaria at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. after protesters rush the stage at a joe biden rally, congressional leaders say that protection is needed now. coming up, a cnn exclusive look at how they train. ♪ hey allergy muddlers... achoo! ...do your sneezes turn heads? try zyrtec... ...it starts working hard at hour one... and works twice as hard when you take it again the next day. zyrtec muddle no more.
