tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN April 26, 2021 2:00am-2:59am PDT
a vaccine passport but not like the one you've heard before. new details overnight on when americans could finally start traveling to europe again. what does the body cam show of a deadly police shooting of a black man in north carolina? the family could find out today. goes to -- anthony hopkins. >> a huge surprise caps off the academy awards. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the
world. we rehave reporters in paris an moscow and all around the world. good morning. it's monday. april 26th. 5:00 a.m. in new york. it's time to dust off the passport after more than a year. americans are likely able to travel this europe this summer. set to recommend the switch in policy for americans who have been fully vaccinated. >> what the world is saying they're looking at thest and the success of the vaccination program. looking at reduction in disease and while they know we're not done yet, they said those americans are safe to come to our country without risk of spreading covid-19. >> of course, that speaks to the need to keep vaccinating americans at a pretty good clip and that rate has slowed a bit in the last ten days. cnn's melissa bell joins us live from paris. good morning to you, melissa. how is this going to work? are there going to be vaccine
passports or there will be some sort of certification? how will it work? >> well, for the time being, we have no particular timeline. no specific timeline. no real idea of how it's going to work. this was ursala mandalay saying they were looking at the moment and how they could translate american certifications of vaccination into something allowing americans once again to pass european borders. it's been more than a year now that europe's external borders have been closed to the rest of the world and few people have been able to get through to places like paris, greece, portugal. all the countries so heavily dependent on tourism. particularly american tourism. europeans are looking at those american vaccination rates, 42% of americans fully vaccinated, 28% having had one vaccine. much better than here, by the way. trying to figure out how to make it work. the problem is that the president of the european commission doesn't have control
of europe's external borders. the second problem i can see is what the europeans are planning to do by mid june have a system that allowing europeans to get around europe. how do you translate that into something americans can use? but clearly huge desire to get it up and running. while europe continues to progress fairly slow with the vaccination campaigns, at least to be able to look beyond this catastrophic year economically to things like reviving tourism industry. clearly that's the motivation for europeans. how it's to be made to work is in the air. >> the documentation issue controversial. even within our own borders. so let alone going overseas. interesting to see how it shakes out. thank you. india shattered its own record for daily cases of covid for the fifth straight day. more than 350,000 new infections. all the worst-case scenarios from one year ago, people sharing hospital beds, running
out of oxygen. all of that happening now. >> it means there's a greater chance that variants will develop that may escape the protection of the vaccines we have in the united states. that means those viruss, those mutant viruss could travel to the u.s. and cause real challenges here. >> so frustrating. now the united states is getting more involved in the india situation and anna is live in hong kong. what is happening in india, i mean, it seems nothing less than a nightmare at this point. >> reporter: yeah. it's nothing short of catastrophic. there are people literally dying outside hospitals. crematoriums have been working around the clock. the numbers you mentioned, as you said, a fifth consecutive day of a global record. experts believe the true number is so much higher because testing is limited and in rural areas and it's virtually
nonexistent. the big thing is the acute shortage of oxygen in hospitals. we've spoken to hospital chiefs who said we're turning patients away unless they bring their own oxygen cylinder and can provide their own supply of oxygen. you have to remember that cylinders and oxygen concentrated they have skyrocketed in price on the black market. for everyday people in india, it is virtually impossible. the government has announced more than 500 oxygen generation plants will be set up around the country but it's too little too late for so many people living through this might mare rights now. you mentioned the international aid. the united states will be helping, germany, singapore. it's not getting there now. people need help now. the level of anger, christine, that has been generated at the government, at the prime minister modi is growing.
interestingly the government has decided to try to silence its critics. it sent an emergency order to twitter telling them to take down dozens of tweets from journalists, film makers, lawmakers who criticized the mishandling, the competence of what is taking place right now. people in india are feeling abandoned. interestingly twitter did comply and remove some of the tweets, but to think that the government has the time to focus on its critics rather than what is unfolding on its doorstep when people are dying is terrifying. >> yeah. anna, thank you so much. we should point out, there's a trend here with populist leaders. trump, modi, erdogan presiding over some of the worst covid outbreaks in the world and trying to silence critics and reality, as well. anna, thank you so much for that. back here in the u.s. today, family members of andrew brown jr. may finally get a chance to
see how he died. a north carolina sheriff said he wants police officers' body cam footage released to the public and plans to ask a court to order it. police shot and killed a 42-year-old man after deputies claim they tried to serve him with an arrest warrant in elizabeth city. >> with all the killings going on, i never expected this to happen so close to home, like, he left a close and tight knit family. with each other every day. talking to each other every day. my brothers and my sisters, we're what drove him as a person. we made him better. now i got to live every day my newborn without getting a chance to meet him at all. >> very few details have been released about this shooting, but the deputies involved have been placed on administrative leave. according to dispatch audio from that day, first responders can
be heard saying a man had gunshot wounds to the back. a virginia sheriff's deputy shooting an unarmed black man who the deputy had given an a ride home the hour earlier. the deputy mistook the phone 32-year-old isaiah brown was using for a gun. brown was taken to the hospital but serious but nonlife threatening injuries. this video is disturbing, we want to warn you. >> drop the gun. he's got a gun to his head. drop the gun now. stop. >> before the shooting, a 9-1-1 audio brown is heard arguing with a brother. at one point, brown asked for a gun but the brother refuses. the unnamed deputy is on administrative leave and a state investigation is underway. upset for the ages at the oscars. the late chadwick boseman does not get the oscar many assumed he would win. hear the first reaction from the man who beat him next.

and the award for actor goes to anthony hopkins. [ cheers and applause ] >> so a shocker to end oscar night. the show was heading for a climatic finish with the late actor chadwick boseman as the presumptive winner but the hollywood ending didn't go as expected. cnn's chloe melas joining now. they teed up the potential end of show tribute to chadwick boseman. it didn't happen. >> honestly, the show ended with a resounding fight. i've seen reactions on social media that said it might be the worst ending in oscars history. first of all, the show was already different. all of us remember oscars ending with best picture. like you said, they switched it up making us think there was
going to be an incredible ending, a tribute to the late chadwick boseman for his final role. he did not win the oscar posthuman usely. that's what all award season was. leading up to the big moment and tribute for him. it went to anthony hopkins, the oldest oscar winner ever at 83, but it was a huge, huge disappointment for everyone. but we are happy for anthony hopkins. take a listen to him. >> very grateful to the academy. thank you. i want to pay tribute to chadwick boseman, who was taken from us far too early. again, thank you all very much. i really did not expect this. >> at least he could read the
room. there was more diversity among the oscar winners this year. we have chloe zhao winning best director. we have youn-jung yun. she had a moment with brad pitt when she accepted. >> mr. pitt, finally, nice to meet you. very honored to meet you. [ laughter ] >> it's kind of nice, right? >> we all love her. her speech was so great! so endearing. i loved it. i couldn't stop crying. it's a great movie about a family from south korea who moves to the united states to make a life for themselves in arkansas. then she plays the grandmother who comes over to, like, save the family, essentially. brad pitt's production company produced the movie.
that was that moment where, you know, she had heard about brad pitt, he produced the movie and she's fan girling with him. flirting a little bit. they walked off stage together and there's photos of the two of them. she has her arm in his. it was sweet. i think everybody wants to see more of her. she was great. >> absolutely. and regina king who is amazing starting off the show with the powerful moment. listen. >> if things had gone differently this past week in minneapolis, i might have traded in my heels for marching boots. [ applause ] now i know that a lot of you people at home want to reach for your remote when you feel like hollywood is preaching to you, but as a mother of a black son, i know the fear that so many live with and no amount of fame or fortune changes that. >> how political did the show get this year?
>> it did get political. there were references to the derek chauvin trial. daniel kulia thanked fred hampton. many teem talked about the issues we've had with race and social injustice over the past year throughout the covid-19 pandemic. i would say the show got political but not in an overt sort of way. i think that it needed to be this way because for years the oscars has been criticized as being oscars white and lack of diversity. i think that despite the issue and maybe viola davis not winning like i think she should have, like chadwick boseman not winning, there was diversity with chloe zhao winning for best director. that was a huge moment as the first woman of asian descent to
be nominated and to win. you know, i would say that overall i just want to say that, you know, they were tasked this year the producers of the oscars with a huge undertaking. viewership has been down over the last few years. they promised it was going to be different and like this magical movie. i think there was too much hype. they built it up too much. they didn't show enough movie clips. that's my biggest thing. they talked about the movies but didn't show the clips. that's why we come to watch the oscars! so i don't know i give it, like, a 7. >> especially those who have children at home who may not have seen the movies. >> exactly. >> we use these as teasers of what to watch. yeah. before we let you go, you mentioned that one thing during the break that the fact they didn't have a host made a difference here. award shows have been struggling with these. what it you make of that? >> great question.
so, you know, i'm going to tell you what billy crystal told me last week. he has hosted the oscars nine times. he said it's a mistake to not have a host. everybody is kind of looking for that captain of the ship to steer us throughout the night. it would have been nice to have had a host, too, at the end of this awkward moment where anthony hopkins wasn't there to accept the award. to have someone to say something. you know, it would have been good. it kind of felt a little aimless at moments. regina king did a great job at the beginning but, you know, there needs to be a host next year. i think they should bring in tina fey and amy poehler. that would be good. >> all right. chloe, thank you so much for watching and getting up early with us this morning. i appreciate it. nice to see you. >> everything you need know if you didn't watch the oscars from chloe melas. thank you. you'll never guess who is singing joe biden's praises as he gets ready for his first address to a joint session of congress. that's next. that delicious scramble was microwaved? get outta here.

my way it'll give us momentum to get through the next election. when you do something that everyone tags on to, i've seen good things happen, that people voted against it and took credit for it and went home. i'm not begin to be part of blowing up this senate of ours. >> one thing i will say is i think that the biden administration and a divided house definitely exceeded expectations that progressives had. you know, i'll be frank, i think a lot of us expected a more conservative administration. >> quite the juxtaposition there. a big tax hike for the wealthy. a tax hike on people not companies right now. >> and a tax hike on people who make more than a million dollars a year. that capital gains tax hike. tens of thousands of people safely packed into a concert in new zealand.

bipolar depression. it's a dark, lonely place. this is art inspired by real stories of people living with bipolar depression. emptiness. a hopeless struggle. the lows of bipolar depression can disrupt your life and be hard to manage. latuda could make a real difference in your symptoms. latuda was proven to significantly reduce bipolar depression symptoms, and in clinical studies, had no substantial impact on weight. now i'm feeling connected. empowered. latuda is not for everyone. call your doctor about unusual mood changes, behaviors or suicidal thoughts. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients on latuda have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles, and confusion, as these may be life-threatening, or uncontrollable muscle movements as these may be permanent. these are not all the serious side effects. this is where i want to be. talk to your doctor and ask
if latuda could make the difference you've been looking for in your bipolar depression symptoms. we look up to our heroes. idolizing them. mimicking their every move. and if she counts on the advanced hydration of pedialyte when it matters most... ...so do we. hydrate like our heroes. good morning. it's monday. this is "early start." i'm christine romain -- romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. do not skip your second vaccine dose. the cdc said 8% of americans missed their second shot. getting an accurate picture of what is happening is tough because states have to gather data from various other places. whatever is behind the drop off in second doses, health experts
said we need to reverse course and soon. >> if you have gotten your first dose, it's really important you get your second dose. i think some people are getting a little bit frightened by some of the talk, and, frankly, some of the misinformation on side effects and things of that nature. if you talk to most people who have gotten their second shot, the side effects are quite mild and temporary. in the vast majority of cases. the key to getting back to life that we used to know is vaccination. so far we have more than half of adult americans that have done their vaccine shots. that's great. but that also means that we have near half of americans that haven't done it yet. i think we're going to see a world where people have been vaccinated are going to enjoy a lot of freedoms. >> meantime, the average case count finally leveling off again falling back below 60,000 for the first time in a month.
one expert thinks the dip could be hear to stay. >> i think whereas the past trend when we saw cases decline, we were skeptical because we knew declines were as a result of behavioral changes. people pulling back more, taking more precautions. as soon as we let our guard down, we saw cases surge again. right now the declines we're seeing, we can take to the bank. i think we can feel more assured because they're being driven by vaccinations and greater levels of population wide immunity. not just from vaccination but prior infection. and the sooner everyone gets vaccinated, the sooner we can return to things like this. look at this. 50,000 people at a concert in new zealand. all the more reason to get that single dose vaccine back on the market. "early start" is covering the pandemic coast to coast. >> i'm polo sandoval in new york. one of the states offering j&j's vaccine after federal health
finishes resume administering it after a temporary pause. in new york, officials saying the one-shot vaccines is used for pop up vaccination programs among others. indiana is among the states recommending the j&j's vaccine being offered again including indianapolis motor speedway taking place over the weekend. i'm in new york. the city taking extra steps to expand vaccine access. mayor bill de blasio announcing that city-run sites will accept walk ins. no appointments necessary. he's encouraging sites not run by the city to do the same thing. encourage people to walk in to try to get a vaccine. he's said the city sites will drop their geographic restrictions, meaning you don't need to live in a specific part of the city in order to qualify for a vaccine at specific city sites. i'm in washington. the smithsonian said some of the museums will reopen starting next month. three museums including national
air and space museum reopening may 5th. another three, including natural portrait gallery on may 14th, and the national zoo, including the new baby panda cub on may 21st. it's been a rocky reopening for the nation's museums. they first closed for the pandemic last march. reopened again the following july. then closed again in november. the cdc is expected to offer new guidance on wearing masks outdoors, particularly for americans who are fully vaccinated. dr. anthony fauci tells cnn he believes the new guidance will come in the next few days or so and there will be new advice for the unvaccinated, as well. dr. fauci said it's clear the risk of infection outdoors is extremely low. some unsolicited dating advice. if you plan on staging a violent insurrection to overthrow democracy, your future girlfriend won't be impressed.
ro robert chatman told his match he made it to statuary hall and interviewed by the media after ward. the user replied, quote, "we're not a match." she sent screen shots to the chat to the fbi. he has been charged with four misdemeanors. >> so fake revolutionaries don't get the girl in the end. warmer weather, vaccinations, lifting restrictions good for business. customers are coming back but workers not so much. restaurants and bars added back about 176,000 jobs in march but the sector is down 15% or 1.8 million jobs from prepandemic levels. fast food chains are offering incentives. they're giving money to get employees back. mcdonalds owners are reevaluating the kinds of benefits employees want. taco bell is giving store
managers paid family leave. chipotle is giving some employees free college tuition. there are other challenges including consumers. the customers themselves. restaurant managers are dealing with customers refusing to wear masks, customers not adhering to social distancing guidelines, customers seating themselves in closed off areas. all conditions they said creating an unsafe work environment for employees. the same time many workers are look to leave the industry with better paying jobs in tech or finance. i mean, some of these stories of these restaurant managers are saying about, you know, customers coming in, they've been pent up for a year, they want things to be exactly back to normal and not exactly very nice about the service they're getting. >> i think that's why people find it so baffling to have to wear a mask outside when you're separated from people. when you come inside a restaurant and rip it off and put everyone at risk. it's really confounding. >> it is. seating in the closed areas i find bold. russian courts dealing the

a possible time table for a meeting between president biden and president putin, in the meantime this morning russia courts taking aim at alexi navalny. fr fred pleitgen has the latest. what are the courts saying about navalny? >> reporter: well, one of the big blows that the organization got just a couple of minutes ago is the prosecutor here has suspended operations of navalny's headquarters throughout the entire country of russia while the trial is going on. the trial can't be overstated. it's extremely dangerous for the navalny organization and, also, for the anti-corruptive foundation, as well. one of the things that could be decided here is that his
organization could be labelled an extremist organization here in russia. it means they would have the same legal status -- get this -- as isis in russia. anybody who does any sort of work for them could end up in jail. anybody who retweets anything from the organization would end up in jail, as well. the interesting thing about this trial is the whole trial is actually going on in secret. i spoke to one of the lawyers who is representing navalny's organization and they got a bunch of documents early today. that's the nonsecret part. there's a lot of secret documents they haven't seen yet. then at the end of the trial, again, alexi's organization could be labelled extremist here in russia. it would mean many of the people working for that organization would have to stop working or possibly even leave the country. again, big jail sentences could e merge from that. certainly a big blow already as the headquarters has been ordered to stop working. if, indeed, his organization is labelled extremist here in russia, that would essentially
mean -- the words of one of navalny's allies here that fighting corruption here in this country would be labelled as extremist activity. >> yeah. fred, quickly, how are you getting the information if this is being done in secret? >> reporter: well, some of the information -- we're getting a little bit of information. not as much as we would like to get. what is going on is the lawyers are going in there. they're going into the hearings and coming out. they can tell us certain things. like, for instance, one of the lawyers told us he got a bunch of documents and showed us. he then said he was going to have to go into another part to look at the secret documents and those documents, obviously, the lawyers are not going to be able to take out of the court. the entire trial is completely closed to any sort of press. there's no real records from the trial either. the lawyers can only talk about certain things. it's a secretive proceeding even though some of the information is secret, some is not secret. >> fred, thank you so much for being there.
