tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  July 5, 2020 11:00am-12:01pm PDT

11:00 am
hello, everyone. thank you so much for joining me this sun. i'm fredericka whitfield. we have staggering new numbers of this epidemic. florida just reporting nearly 10,000 more cases today and that's on top of yesterday's huge numbers which set a single day record for all states with more than 11,400 new infections con if you remembered on saturday. arizona and texas seeing massive spikes leading officials to accuse the states of reopening too early but everyone as we see cases surge president trump is
11:01 am
downplaying concerns telling a crowd during a fourth of july event in washington, d.c. that 99% of the coronavirus cases are quoting now totally harmless. factually incorrect claim and his public events are also becoming increasingly defiant, not requiring social distancing or face coverings. for the crowds. that's something officials in some of the hardest hit regions of the country say is completely counter productive. >> how do you tell somebody they have to wear a mask and be socially distanced when the president doesn't and hosts a rally almost celebrating the lack of those simple counter measures? so really we are not on the same page. there's not unity in the -- you know, in our community or any community right now and i feel like that's the greatest challenge, if people listened and did what they -- what made sense and what was healthy we would get through this much better. >> cnn has reporters across the
11:02 am
country covering this coronavirus and state reopenings. let's go first to cnn's boris sanchez in miami beach, florida. we are getting new numbers from the state, staggering, alarming but what are officials there in south florida saying? >> reporter: they're very concerned about these numbers, fred. the state of florida yesterday nearly 10,000 new covid-19 cases for the sunshine state. keep in mind the first four days of july have signaled more than 40,000 positive coronavirus cases here. that in comparison to the month of june when they saw 100,000 coronavirus cases. they're getting dangerously close to beating that number in about a week or two. take a look at the miami beach convention center. this is a testing side where we have seen people coming just about the entire day. there was an enormous line.
11:03 am
that may have to do with weather but the folks that are waiting in their cars, this line wraps around the entire block and goes around the other side of this street. a lot of folks obviously concerned and the mayor of miami beach putting out warnings in part because the rate of infection is also very high. it is nearly 15%. here's more of what he shared with cnn earlier today. >> our hospital capacity's reducing and it really is sort of a line. you see the positive increase and then you go to your hospitalization and we have doubled our hospitalization, the census is doubled in 14 days and then the intensive care doubled and even we have 158 people on ventilators right now and i think 2 weeks ago it was 64. >> reporter: he is recommending that people take advantage of this access to testing and spoke to a young couple saying it took about 15 minutes waiting on foot
11:04 am
and able to get swabbed, getting the results in two days. officials are hoping for a clearer picture of how vast the epidemic is. the numbers are huge and worried about the people not counted, too, fred. >> what about in miami beach? we know that miami, it is mandatory to wear a mask. the miami-dade county mayor has certainly set, you know, some recommendations in place but is miami beach an area where even a mask is mandatory? >> reporter: if you are in a public building a mask is required, fred. there's a curfew put in place for this weekend kicking in 10:00 p.m. restaurants and bars are thinned out. i'm from this area and walking around seeing the bars and restaurants and hotels very low capacity. it really is daunting for the businesses here, one that a community that really relies on
11:05 am
hospitality, especially in light of a holiday weekend but they're telling folks to stay home and concerned that having opened bars early is a reason we are now in this state. people ignoring social distancing guidelines leading to more problems, fred. >> right. this is a day after many south florida beaches closed for the holiday. thank you so much, boris sanchez. arizona also seeing an explosion of coronavirus cases and then the mayor of phoenix is attributing the rising numbers in part to the state reopening when it did. >> we opened way too early in arizona. we were one of the last states to go to stay-at-home and one of the first to reemerge and we did at 0 to 60. we had crowded nightclubs handing out free champagnes, no masks. >> cnn's evan mcmorris-santoro,
11:06 am
the state is dealing with an uphill climb to get the cases under control. what now? >> reporter: that's right, fred. it is a lot of last names so that's okay. let me just put the picture for what things are like in arizona right now. we talked to boris in florida where the situation is dire but here arizona at the highest per capita average of new cases, very, very serious situation here. 3,536 new cases announced by the state yesterday. four new deaths and we are hovering here around 90% capacity on the icu beds. it is still a holiday weekend and i'm at the lake that's a recreation area near phoenix. people are out and doing the recreation to kind of do which is be on a boat far from each other but what you heard the mayor talk about, about things opening too quickly here and some of the rules, the masks are
11:07 am
not worn here that you can see on the ramps and the mayor talks about masks in the interview earlier today. >> our governor has preefforted us from closing different types of businesses or moving restaurants to takeout only. we really want as many tools as possible. we had to beg to implement masking orders. we were preempted from doing that and thankful the governor did allow the cities to put orders in place which i think will help. if you have seen the data of communities that had them. >> reporter: so the important part of the quote is this mask ordinance is a city by city rule here in arizona. we have been other parts of the state and phoenix where masks are required and now here where people are not wearing them even when think oar not socially distant from each other so that's the concern here in arizona trying to figure out how to get the rules in place in a
11:08 am
state that is pretty resistant to some of them, fred. >> right. as you hear from some of the mayors, mate it may be attributo the bump in numbers. appreciate that. texas facing a grim number today, as well. the state reporting more than 8,200 new cases on saturday bringing the total number to more than 192,000. it marks the second highest day on record for new cases according to johns hopkins university. the areas hardest hit include harris county where houston is located. the governor issued an executive order to require residents in counties with 20 or more active cases to ware face coverings in public. and now on to california. coronavirus cases continuing to surge across that state. just yesterday, california
11:09 am
reported 2,300 new cases. still high but lower than the record of 8,100 new dayty cases. cnn's paul vercammen joins us. what more can you tell us about the spread, the precautions, the concerns? >> reporter: one interesting note about that, fred, if you look at the empty beach here which was closed for precautions, l.a. county is not updating the numbers this weekend because it is improving the data collection system so the last number they had is 2,200 new cases. that was on thursday. look for that number to come back up when that system comes back online and look at the closed beaches. the idea avoid the big crowds and didn't have fireworks here. and that led to a phenomenon in l.a. that almost seems surreal. there were fireworks, illegal, going off all over the city, the
11:10 am
number of complaints through the roof. at one point online to the lapd 1,000 complaints and a situation of 150 people backed up on the non emergency phone line. l.a. city fire reporting that in this instance they had, 1 of 40 structure fires and 1 of 103 tree fires, an apartment complex caught fire. five people treated. 50 evacuated from the apartment. let me give you a sense of what it sounded like in l.a. as people had no public displays to go through and some setting off fireworks on their own. let's take a listen. that's what it sounded like. pat morrison is a columnist and she tweeted sounded like world war i or a soundtrack.
11:11 am
very loud, fred. >> paul vercammen, thank you so much. president trump used his national audience on the fourth of july weekend to divide america and he continues to downplay the threat from the coronavirus as cases surge around the country. a closer look coming up. plus, new concerns that the virus could spread more easily than experts initially thought and we'll show you one place where cases of the virus have jumped 600%. see how people are coping straight ahead. at t-mobile, we know that connection is more important than ever. for customers 55 and up, we want you to get the value and service you need to stay connected. that's why we have a plan built just for you. saving 50% vs. other carriers with 2 unlimited lines for only $55.

(combative yelling) therabreath, it's a better mouthwash. at walmart, target and other fine stores. therabreath, it's a better mouthwash. ok. it was an accident. he was tickling me and...

neuriva has clinically proven oingredients that fuel five, indicators of brain performanc: memory, focus, accuracy, learning, and concentration. try our new gummies for 30 days and see the difference. right now, a mayor highway in philadelphia is shut down due to more protests over police brutality and racism. this is the scene at highway i-676 and see protesters standing on the roadway, some holding signs and others riding
11:16 am
bikes. we'll see stay on the protests there and look for details throughout the hour. president trump continuing his attacks on what he calls the radical left. in another divisive independence day weekend speech and now he is also trying to downplay the dangers of coronavirus based on a number of false claims as the u.s. death toll nears 130,000 mark. >> now we have tested almost 40 million people. by so doing we show cases, 99% of which are totally harmless. >> that's being disputed. jeremy diamond at the white house, the president delivering that speech before a crowd right there at the white house. very few demonstrating any social distancing or wearing masks and then you get on top of that baseless claims coming from
11:17 am
the president. so what are the president's health experts saying? how are they chiming in? >> reporter: the president's claim that 99% of coronavirus cases are harmless really defies reality and it sends the opposite message that experts are trying to send at a time where coronavirus cases are surging and trying to convince americans to take the virus much more seriously. while the world health organizationest meats less than 1% of people die from the virus they also estimate about 20% of people who are diagnosed with the coronavirus require oxygen or hospitalization. so certainly not harmless. but here's how the fda commissioner hahn who's a member of the coronavirus task force responded when asked about the president's claim. >> so i'm not going to get into who's right and wrong but what i'll say is that it's serious problem that we have. we have seen this surge in cases. we must do something to stem the
11:18 am
tide and we have this in our power to do it following the guidance from the white house task force and the cdc. >> reporter: while he doesn't want to pcontradict the presidet he said it's a serious problem and americans should take it seriously. in fact, in places where testing stayed the same or declined, the positive pifty, the percentage of people testing positive for the virus is rising. fred? >> all right. jeremy, thank you so much. want to talk about that and a few other things. dr. julio frank is a policy maker for the world health organization and president of the university of miami. always good to see you, doctor. your state of florida seeing yet another single day record for coronavirus cases, covid is surging in your state. next month the republicans plan to hold an in-person gop
11:19 am
convention in jacksonville. on top of which you have dr. steven hahn, the fda commissioner asked, he was asked about that upcoming event this morning. listen to what he said. >> do you think it's safe to hold that event in florida? >> i think it's too early to tell. we have to see how it unfolds in florida and elsewhere around the country. >> so what's your concern about a rather noncommittal answer coming from the fda commissioner? >> look. we do know that large-scale especially indoors gatherings are dangerous in terms of the spread of the disease. the good news here is you can actually control this. it requires a number of very simple actions. think about this.
11:20 am
it's about wearing a face covering. it's about keeping some distance. this is -- i think we need a very clear communication of why public health is recommending those actions. >> and you think even those practical measures would work in an arena of hundreds if not thousands of people in jacksonville which was really the premise of the question about so many people gathering for republican convention. so even if those very basic things of a face covering, hand washing, some distancing, would you still have paramount concerns? >> it would still be a concern. now, my recommendation to any organization, whatever it is, is you need -- because there's so much uncertainty, this is a new disease, you need to have con
11:21 am
tin yen con ten general sy plans and know exactly what point you go into plan "b." this is what we do at the university, every organization. this is what you do in the face of uncertainty. you know exactly what is plan at "a" and what point you pivot. monitoring the infection spreading. hopefully some of the measures are going to work but you have previously specified that given a threshold of infections, for example, you would change your plans and that is essential in the face of a fluid situation of a lot of unknowns. >> doctor, i want to ask you about the idea of messaging whether it come from the white house or top health officials, the president right there on the house lawn saying of 40 million
11:22 am
people tested and 99% of the cases are harmless, but then you have the fda commissioner who was asked about it today and he tells our dana bash i won't say who's right and wrong, why wouldn't you have leadership particularly from, you know, health organizations and departments for this administration say emphatically and make it very clear what is the reality? how can it be that 99% of all of those cases, those tests are harmless? >> yeah. i think in any emergency, in any emergency, especially, you know, when you have a new pandemic, this is the fifth one i have seen so one -- two big lessons you have is you got to have those contingency plans i was talking about first and very clear communication. because, you know, there's a lot of unknowns. we are discovering more and more about it, this disease, as it
11:23 am
progresses. we know that although we get much better at treating the disease so the death rate is flat and actually trending slightly lower to get better at treating and we have more younger people who get infected and the other hand what we're also discovering is even people who recover have long-term consequences. they're significant. highly vulnerable and in f they get sick they experience a very, very dire circumstances and that's where it is true that most of the mortality's concentrated but it is -- you know, these are very, very serious patients. but people in icus call them the sickest patients they have ever seen in their careers. we know a lot about this disease but there's still a lot we don't know. >> you are a doctor but do you believe it's more difficult for
11:24 am
ordinary citizens to know who to trust in terms of health leadership? whether it be the coronavirus task force, leaders of any of these federal agencies or even the white house? is it getting more and more difficult to trust and to know who and what to believe on coronavirus and impacting this nation. >> what i can tell you is if you look around the world, the countrys that have done best have been those countries where there's an alignment of messaging, where, you know, by and large, not saying total alignment, by and large experts and political leaders are more or less on the same page and because that indeed creates certainty. that's a lot of anxiety and in the case of uncertainty what we do know from previous pandemics is clear communication is crucial. in this case, you know, it
11:25 am
actually -- i mean, i think a lot about this as i think about my university. and our plans to reopen in the fall. this ought to be a great moment for education, in civic culture. the reason for wearing a face mask is not to limit anybody's freedom. it's to protect the others. particularly those who are vulnerable. now if you think about the sacrifices that previous generations who fought other wars, what they did is it too much of a sacrifice to ask that you wear a face covering to protect others? you are not doing it for yourself. this ought to be a moment for civic education, for bringing out the best. that idea of reciprocity where we all gather together to protect the most vulnerable and i hope to do that in my campus to be a teaching moment. >> seems very simple, not a sacrifice at all in order to --
11:26 am
for those to do the right thing. doctor, thank you so much. appreciate it. >> thank you. some schools around the country were scheduled to open just weeks from now but will they? coming up, the concerns about kids staying out of school and in contrast rids returning to school. plus, a 600% spike in covid cases? how a country is coping with this massive crisis. some companies still have hr stuck between employees and their data. entering data. changing data. more and more sensitive, personal data. and it doesn't just drag hr down. it drags the entire business down -- with inefficiency, errors and waste. it's ridiculous.

11:30 am
all right. welcome back. the situation in iraq is growing increasingly dire.
11:31 am
the country recorded a 600% jump in coronavirus cases in june and iraqis are now scrambling to bury the scores of dead. cnn's arwa damon joins me now from us stan bull, turkey. arwa? >> reporter: hi. iraq's ministry of health is washing that t hospitals saying it's nearing capacity. experts are warning that the government is going to have to redouble its efforts if it wants to slow down the spread of the virus. they wait to verify the names of the dead. their sorrow is silent. much like the enemy that claimed those they lost. this man lost his parents and sister to covid-19, one after the other. they underestimated the virus, did not understand how to protect themselves from the spread. we are terrified now. we are 100% convinced he says.
11:32 am
the burials happen at night in iraq's largest cemetery when the country's brutal summer heat dips. final prayers by strangers. teams from the country's paramilitary force formed to fight isis. we are getting around 70 to 80 bodies a day this man says. and it's expected to get much worse across this country whose medical infrastructure was already decimated by decades of sanctions, war and corruption. medical workers report a prevalence of the virus among hospital staff due to a lack of proper measures and ppe. >> i was among my family when the head manager of the hospital contacted me to inform me that the result of pcr is positive for covid-19. >> reporter: this doctor filmed the moment he told his children
11:33 am
he was sick, promising them that he would be back not knowing if it would be a promise he would keep. >> for my person, this is a painful moment that you say good-bye to your children and your family. and your do not know whether you will return back or not. >> reporter: luckily he did and is now recovering. we were so worried about mommy and daddy would have corona a daughter says upon his return with the others chiming in. >> with coronavirus cases now jumped due to government default and widening protection measures. the peoples and opening the markets and malls. >> reporter: this video shows people scuffling over oxygen tanks outside a hospital in the south of the country.
11:34 am
trying to secure a supply for their sick loved ones. in the same city, health workers beg their ministry for help. iraqis know loss on a mass scale all too well, the bitter pain of consecutive wars that bled into each other. a member of iraq's security forces apologizes for his inability to keep his emotions in check. it's his mother who died. fredericka, fear and frustration is spreading among the population and anger towards the iraqi government for it inability to actually try to protect the population further and then, of course, there is the economic toll of this. many iraqis lost their jobs, their employment and many are reporting that they are struggling to find enough money to even put enough food on the table. >> yeah. global pandemic hitting so many
11:35 am
in all corners very hard. arwa damon in us stan bull, thank you so much. an overnight camp in north georgia shuts don after campers and staff test positive for coronavirus. details straight ahead. just press firmly and it continuously eliminates odors in the air and on soft surfaces. for 45 days.

11:39 am
this just in to cnn. in georgia an overnight camp has closed after multiple campers and staff members tested positive for coronavirus. the ymca camp high harbor said it first learned on june 24th that one of the counselors contracted that virus and sent home and parents were notified but since that positive test, other campers and counselors also tested positive. the camp was unable to confirm an exact number but according to the georgia department of public health at least 30 cases across 2 of the ymca camp locations. and just this week, the american academy of pediatrics
11:40 am
weighed into the debate and argued that the academic, mental and physical benefits of in-person learning outweigh the risks posed by the pandemic. joining me is dr. gale saltz, a psychiatrist and author of "the power of different." good to see you. >> thank you. >> do you agree with the american academy of pediatrics that the benefits of in-person learning far outweigh the risks of kids going in to school with this pandemic still out there? >> you know, it will depend on the place and it will depend on the measures being taken. i can't tell you what the recipe would be for safe return and the right combination of masks and social distancing and what places have the -- that and which population has such a density of covid it is not possible at certain times but what i can tell you is that we
11:41 am
are probably underestimating the cognitive, the social and emotional and the mental health fallout from the 1.6 billion children around the world right now who are not in schools because we do know that cognitively what you lose over the time period that you're not in school is substantial, so much so that for young kids their ability to make it up in terms of really forming an adult iq may not make that up especially for disadvantaged kids and in terms of mental health kids who -- most kids who are develop a mental health issue which is actually close to -- somewhere between a third and half of kids are first noted by the educator and they get the services in school. and so, all of these kids who have anxiety and mood disorders, they're not picked up. >> missing out. >> do not receive treatment,
11:42 am
exactly. >> i'm hanging on something you said. many of us underestimated and seem that is that was evident until this pandemic and then, you know, with the loss of seeing your child, you know, interacting and all that in school it's now much more pronounced, the value, of what children were gaining when they were in school but here we are at this place of yes we want our kids academically to flourish and same time keep them physically safe so given that what are this school districts having to keep in mind as they ascertain is now the time to invite everyone or just some back into the classroom? do we do a hybrid learning? you know? is it one week on, one week off. what should -- i guess my question is what should the school districts be considering and taking into account when
11:43 am
making a decision? >> i think they will have to look at creative methods to facilitate the use of the kind of services that parents and families and kids used to getting from them. for example, mental health and probably not something schools think about right now but they need to think about how can an educator picking up on something online, how can a school let the educator know that, in fact, how can the educator let the family know? they think an evaluation should take place. how can parents become educated for warning signs to note and what are services that can be provided through telemedicine? person online with a private room, et cetera, so i think that will be important and cognitively we also know that this lost time can really hurt
11:44 am
kids so what can the school be providing? honestly, what can the community be providing? i think schools guide the community, for example, we know that how important it is for kids to have aerobic movement. right? for physical health and mental health. huge. can a community provide sort of like we have a park and this parent's going to run and exercise class and then take a turn with another parent? parents are overburdened but schools can help direct the way that a community can come together and provide other things for kids that are needed that they might not get if they can't be physically present in school. >> great suggestions. my goodness, underscores poor kids, poor us parents. we are all exasperated and the educators, too. this is hard. wow. all right. doctor, we have to keep these
11:45 am
conversations going. we need to hear the information to do great for one another. thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. protesters have torn down a s statue of christopher columbus in baltimore. president trump said it's an attempt to erase history but some say it's a fight against racist symbols. more on what might happen to simmon. s in the country.
11:46 am
11:47 am
11:48 am
11:49 am
11:50 am
a protester in seattle is dead and another person is in serious condition after a car drove into a crowd of protesters on an interstate. 24-year-old summer taylor was killed when the driver of a white jaguar got on to the closed freeway and ran her over as the car sped through a group of black lives matter protesters. a second victim remains in serious condition. the driver of the car has been arrested and police continue to search for a motive and determine how the driver got on to the closed interstate. there have been many who have spoken out for the passing. senator harris and democratic congresswoman jiapal tweeting condolences to the victims and supporters for the protesters.
11:51 am
monuments linked to a history of racism and brutality at the center of protests in the country. in baltimore, a statue of christopher columbus was toppled and thrown into the inner harbor saturday night. the maryland governor hogan condemned the move. joining me right now, julian maxwell-hader. julian, so good to see you. >> yeah, thank you for having me. >> so let's talk about what took place in baltimore first which really perhaps is a microcosm of what we have seen across the country. of course, there have been protests and the taking down of many confederate monuments but this monument what it represents and for so long many americans have felt, their patience has been running thin on christopher
11:52 am
columbus and what he symbolizes in terms of discovering a land which was already inhabited by native americans. so help people understand what unfolded there in baltimore. >> i think people aren't merely upset with columbus, the historical figure. they're also waging wars on the way he is lionized despite what historians illuminated and other examples of this. i think there have been -- there's been a lot of historical research over the last several decades and when we know more about the columbus history and the kind of mythological approach we have heard historically led on and people -- the narrative of christopher columbus to be complicated that reflects the historical record and we have seen by the way examples of this. right? think of what they have done for
11:53 am
instance with thomas jefferson and monticello. what they have done and dove headlong through the complexity of the american experiment and now i think what we are seeing is that people atertempts to grapple with the figures. the quote/unquote discovery of the new world and december mags of native americans and people already there and i think people want to hear a better story and tired of the way that the histories have been told. >> when we talk about this while you're also seeing a number of the confederate memorials that are either taken down or cities have elected to take them down, you know, you have spoken so prelivically about how while the south lost the war it still won in a way by being able to later
11:54 am
erect -- and why this collective movement is so profound right now. so it is your argument as well as that of so many who are saying this does not symbolize erasing history but instead putting relics of history in its proper place. would you say that would be museums? >> right. history is as much about forgetting as remembering and i think what people are really dealing with is the crisis of memories that have been chosen and absurd to think that we can erase history. if you crack open a textbook there are no minorities in those textbooks and they're dehumanized figures. we have been effective to erase history and what i think people want is a history more in keeping with the people that erected the monuments and people recognize that confederate statutory and the institutionalization of the lost
11:55 am
cause cast a shadow on what america has become in paving the road to how we got to now. >> right. and there have been many who argue while it is not erasing history in which to make the corrections, if you look at the precipice on which some of the confederate monuments put up that was an attempt to rewrite history trying to infer that the south didn't lose and that those symbols were not representing a resurrection or a hope of resurrection of slavery. >> those monuments part of a larger propaganda campaign designed to rewrite the civil war to control the present and these ideas by the way are institutionalized in jim crow legislatures andened up in textbooks not phased out until 1970s and the 1980s and not just the statuary. it is part of a larger tapestry
