t call i could've made. call the barnes firm t call and find out what your case could be worth.uld've made. ♪ call one eight hundred, eight million ♪ hello and welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states and all around the world, you are watching "cnn newsroom" and i'm rosemary church. just ahead, vaccinations game. new momentum in the united states and cases are falling, but experts explain why we can't let our guard down just yet. mass protests in poland. many are fearful their country could be next to leave the e.u. and it's not science fiction.
captain kirk really is going into space, but there's a slight delay. we'll explain. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with rosemary church. thanks for joining us. well, the u.s. appears to be rounding a corner on covid. cases, hospitalizations and deaths are dropping across much of the country, and vaccinations are picking up pace. on sunday the u.s. was averaging more than 1 million doses a day. that's the highest we've seen since july, but cdc data suggests it's boosters shots driving the trend, not new vaccinations. the number of infections is falling or holding steady in most of the u.s. just five states reported significant jumps in new cases last week. health experts say the country is on the right track but it's too early to declare victory
against the virus. >> we have to just be careful that we don't prematurely declare victory in many respects. we still have around 68 million people who are eligible to be vaccinated that have not yet gotten vaccinated. even those who have gotten vaccinated, you want to look forward to holiday seasons, spending time with your family and doing those sorts of things but don't just throw your hands up and say it's all over. >> and we're joined now by dr. jorge rodriguez, internal medicine specialist and bioresearcher. thank you for joining us and all that you do. >> my pleasure as always. >> we are seeing covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths come down. dr. anthony fauci is saying now is not the time to let our time down. collin is telling anti-vaxxers are saying these vaccines may be
a way to send help from god. how concerned are you that the u.s. is going to be left behind here? >> well, i'm always concerned that we come a little bit too complacent and we think that because things are better that means that things are completely gone and they're not. we're still at a much higher baseline than we were a year ago when we had that winter surge so i don't want to poo-poo the fact that the surge is starting to minimize, but let's learn from what happened just even a few months ago when in june we thought everything is fine, let's take off our masks, and what happened? we had another huge surge. another variant that came around. the key word is cautious optimism where we have to come outside. it's still drizzling but we can't take off our galoshes and go running around because it's still raining. it's still raining. >> a good analogy there.
doctor, covid cases are down since the peak last month. very encouraging. cautious optimism, but we are seeing higher infection rates in some of those colder rates, particularly in the north where temperatures are colder and vaccination rates are lower. does that worry you the situation could rise if people don't get vaccinate snd should there be vaccine mandates in place because it does work. >> yes, it does worry me. the winter is going to be another surge. i don't like the word mandate. i know we use it all the time. i think it is a requirement. no be is guaranteed a job but if you want certain jobs you are required if they so wish for you to take a vaccination. it's so authoritarian, but the truth is requiring vaccinations
decreases infection, improves health and improves what we want which is freedom and the economic freedom to go work and enjoy our families and our vacations. so these requirements will work and i hope more of them are proposed by different corporations and the government. >> doctor, merck's covid pill is awaiting fda authorization which could take some time, but once that happens, how much of a game changer could those antiviral pills be? >> they will be a game changer in preventing illness that becomes very bad and in preventing deaths. these pills do not prevent you from getting covid. they're to be used in the early stages of an infection once have you it. the prevention of covid is still the same as we've said, you have to be distant, you have to wear masks and you have to get a vaccine. that's what really helps. the great thing about these
pills, they are going to be a game changer, if you get early symptoms you can start taking them for five days and your chance of getting seriously ill or dying are markedly decreased. >> absolutely. of course, first thing to do is get vaccinated. jose rodriguez, thank you so much. >> my pleasure. much of the world is trying to find a new normal as pandemic battered nations look to reopen without triggering new waves. malaysia is lifting restrictions after vaccinating 90% of its population. italy announced a milestone, 80 percent perfect of all italians are fully vaccinated against covid-19. there have been 238 million cases worldwide since the pandemic began and more than 4.8 million deaths. now one major city that's emerging from covid lockdowns is
sydney. fully vaccinated residents can go to pubs, gyms, restaurants. more than 5 million people have been in strict lockdown since june. officials lifted measures after hitting 70% vaccination rate. the premiere of south wales says if everyone does their part, they can open up more. >> everyone across new south wales, you've earned it. it's been 100 days of blood, sweat. we've got it and if we take personal responsibility we will get through these times. it's a time of optimism and hope. importantly, we need to do it in a safe way. >> cnn producer angus watson joins me. good to see you, angus.
despite a slow start, the vaccination rate is coming up. tell us about the reaction after such a draconian lockdown. >> reporter: absolutely, rosemary. people here in sydney have been locked up at home for 106 days now. today freedom day. restaurants open for a meal. people are able to visit each other, visit friends and family for the first time since june, go to the gym, get a haircut and there is such a sense of relief around town after those 106 days in which the delta variant really has spread quickly through this city. it all began in june with one case with an unvaccinated driver who caught the coronavirus from an airline crew that he was chauffeuring. now that has turned into 60,000 cases and more throughout the entirety of that outbreak.
over 300 deaths as well. but as those numbers have increased, so has the city and the country's vaccination rates. people have been spurred on by the danger of that delta variant to go and get vaccinated. australia has sorted out a lot of supply issues that it has had throughout the year. and hesitancy. now relief and a celebration on what is quite a cold and windy and rainy day. i was in a pub earlier, the angel hotel in central city where they were giving out free beer to celebrate. the pub owner said he was confident he could stay open through the next weeks, months and years because of the high vaccination rates. here's what he said. >> i think we're actually lucky that australia has a higher vaccination rate. 80% next week. >> the pub is way better than
drinking in your own house. 106 days in my house? nothing better than the pub. >> reporter: so you heard there, some relief. some joy there people in sydney. now we're looking for the next milestone. it's allowed these freedoms today. now we're looking at 80% to get the international border open. hopefully next month. there is some tension here in australia between states that have covid-19 in the community. new south wales, victoria, melbourne is locked down and cambra is locked down. some states have no covid but with those borders to the covid states all closed up. hopefully australia can join up again when all of the vaccination rates catch up.
>> the key to freedom, get vaccinated. angus watson joining us live from sydney. just in time for the half term score holiday and the u.k. starting today 47 nations and territories will be removed from the so-called red list. now only seven countries remain on that red list, colombia, ecuador, haiti, panama and venezuela. let's get the latest from selma. is everybody on board this is a wise decision? how is this going to work exactly? >> reporter: well, rosemary, this is a long-awaited decision. as you can imagine, i'm at gatwick airport here. this is a very international city. there has been a strong desire for the government to move and
switch the rules. there's a lot of, let's say, frustration that vaccinated travelers from the united states and other cities were being accepted into the country. 47 countries removed off that red list. if you are not vaccinated you'll have to follow rules and procedures. there are 37 countries where vaccination is accepted, where authorities here will recognize the vaccination status of those travelers. for those who can prove vaccination, they will only have to take one test before departing and another one when they arrive here to prove that vaccination and be able to be exempt from isolation. there are a couple of refeasonso make this happen. it's about restoring confidence in the economy, about reopening
the travel industry so that families can begin to feel again that sense of confidence in the travel industry, in airliners, in being able to go abroad and come home. there was a lot of confusion about the system here, like a traffic system. countries were rotating making rules very difficult for families to follow. all of this is supposed to simplify that system, make the rules clear for the public. allow more visitors to come in and restore confidence in the economy for english travelers. rosemary? >> we'll be watching to see how it all goes. selma abdel azeez joining us from london. we are staying. that is the message from these grounds in poland demanding to remain part of the eu. more on the brewing legal fight that could throw the country's
and now you'll really love new vicks' vapostick. it goes on clear and dries quickly. no mess. just the soothing vicks' vapor for the whole family. introducing new vicks vapostick. for people who could use a lift new neutrogena® rapid firming. a triple-lift serum with pure collagen. 92% saw visibly firmer skin in just 4 weeks. neutrogena® for people with skin.
massive crowds are rallying behind the european union as fears are growing poland could eventually break with the block. as many as 100,000 people turned out in warsaw alone. pro eu rallies come after poland's constitutional court challenged the primacy of european law over international law. cnn's fred pleitgen joins us from berlin. good to see you, fred. what's the latest and where is all of this going? >> reporter: where this is going is definitely the big question, certainly one a lot of people in
poland are asking as well. the reason why these protests took place is obviously that decision by poland's constitutional court challenging the primacy of eu law. the contract between the eu and the member states that they have together, that they are against polish law. all countries that sign up for the european union, they sign up for the fact that eu law trumps international law. there are folks in poland, the polish opposition that believe doing this on the part of the constitutional court, that that could be a first step to poland possibly leaving the european union. as they put it there, polexit. conservative government says that's not the case, this is a boogie man. there were a lot of people that went out in the streets especially in larger cities more towards the west of the poland,
not just in warsaw, in other areas as well. listen to what some of the folks had to say that attended those rallies. >> we want to stay in the european union because we feel stronger and we hope there will be more security if we are in. >> i'm here for poland, for my children. one of them is here. i don't believe we can ever leave europe. >> you have some folks here who fear that the conservative government could be plotting to leave the european union. the government said that is not true. this is something the opposition
is saying because they have nothing to talk about, no political points either. poland at this point is divided between eastern and western and the big cities. there are some folks in poland who do believe in the past couple of years certain rights have been curtailed. freedom of the press, independence of the judiciary. we do sort of see the political battle being waged inside poland has the topic of the european union as well, rosemary. fred pleitgen bringing us up to date on the developments. appreciate it. polls are now closed in iraq and preliminary results in the country's parliamentary election are expected in the coming hours. the turnout was low despite a push from protesters to hold these elections early. cnn's sam kylie is joining me
live from abu dhabi. preliminary results expected in just a few hours. what is the likely outcome here? why was the voter turnout so low? >> reporter: the voter turnout we understand from some of the early reporting from baghdad and the electoral commission could be as low as 20%. 20%, rosemary. 1/5 of the population or the eligible population turning out to vote. large numbers of the young people or middle class people who took part in the very widespread protests in 2019 that precipitated first the change of government and then the government's agreement to hold early election appeared to boycotted this round of elections which were in theory, at any rate, trying to break the political strangle hold that the various sectarian groups have over the whole body poll particular in iraq. this was intended in theory,
rosemary, to try to usher in the opportunities for more independent candidates. the results have been although 3,200 candidates, 55,000 different polling stations across the nation, that this hasn't convinced the people, large numbers of people that these elections are likely to produce anything like the sort of changes that those demonstrators were demanding and demanding in bloody terms, 600 of them were killed during those demonstrations and many others disappeared in political disappearances. as a consequence of this whole process though, rosemary, the predictions are for more of the same. more of the sectarian large number of shia voting on block. many of them going to vote for parties that are very heavily involved. total exception to that is
elsaddir's grouping. his whole grouping is heavily focused on trying to break the tight bonds, if you like, between baghdad and tehran. he is leader of a shia group that is now opposed to iran. then of course you have the sectarian politics of the curt st c curdistan and the sunnis. this is people that are born after or around that time want to see a completely different dispensation but there are no signs whatsoever, rosemary, that they're going to see it. >> 20% turnout, just shockingly low there. sam kiley bringing us the very latest on the elections in iraq. appreciate it. still ahead on cnn, a pair of alleged spies may have given a new meaning to submarine sandwich. what we are learning about a plot to smuggle naval secrets
between two slices of bread. and later taiwan's president said the island won't bow to pressure from china after comments by the mainland's leader. we will hear from them both. that's just ahead. unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indicators of brain performance. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger. you try to stay ahead of the mess but scrubbing still takes time. now there's dawn powerwash dish spray. it's the faster way to clean as you go. just spray, wipe and rinse it cleans grease five times fast. now available in free & clear. so, i started listening to auble about two years ago. a friend of mine recommended a book to me, and i got hooked really fast. and then it kind of just became a lifestyle after that. i've found new authors. i've found new interests. i've found all of these wonderful things. audible has all the entertainment you love. text listen10 to 500500 to get thirty days free.

trying to sell secrets about nuclear powered submarine to a foreign country. they arranged for a handoff. the justice department said the fbi retrieved an sd card concealed within half a peanut butter sandwich at a pre-arranged dead drop location. the couple has been charged with violating the atomic energy act. well, the drop in u.s. president joe biden's approval ratings has one democrat worried about his own election chances three weeks from now. terry mcauliffe is running for governor in virginia. he's downplaying a recent remark that he has to overcome the president's lagging support in the state but is calling on democrats to stop the in fighting and pass the infrastructure bill. joe johns has the details. >> reporter: if there's one thing that comes through about terry mcauliffe's comments, it's that he's frustrated. it's a frustration shared by many democrats in similar
situations around the country due to the president's low polling numbers. for terry mcauliffe, it's a different issue simply because he comes from virginia, he's a former governor from virginia and it's a state that has been trending blue over the past several years. this race is also considered a bell weather looking forward towards the mid-term elections. add all of that up, terry mcauliffe ended up venting on a call with supporters. listen. >> we are facing a lot of headwinds from washington. as you know, the president is unpopular today unfortunately here in virginia so we have got to plow through. >> reporter: on sunday on "state of the union" cnn's dana bash asked terry mcauliffe about his comments. here's what he said. >> as you well know you're talking about the democratic president and democratic congress. are you frustrated with your party. are they dragging you down? >> you bet i'm frustrated. >> are they dragging you down?
>> they're not dragging me down. >> making it harder for you? >> you know, hard or not, i mean, people understand what i'm doing, my plans, my 20 big plans to take virginia to the next level so they're going to vote for me, but there is frustration all over the country. we just want action. >> reporter: so what does the white house say about the president's drop in approval numbers? press secretary jen psaki blames it on covid and the delta variant and the spillover effect between the pandemic, the labor market and the economy. joe johns, cnn, wilmington, delaware. joining me now is cnn white house correspondent john harwood. great to have you with us. so, john, democratic nominee for virginia governor, terry mcauliffe, says president biden's low popularity is dragging him down and blames the party's inability to pass the stalled infrastructure and social spending bills. is that what's causing mr. biden's approval rating to fall as low as 38% according to
quinnipiac poll or is there more to this falling support do you think? >> reporter: i think there is more to it. this has been going on for a couple of months now. president biden has been taking on water in his popularity. the biggest driver of that decline is the resurgence of the coronavirus, the delta variant. president biden got very high marks for much of the year and kept his overall approval above 50% because people saw normal life returning, saw the vaccination campaign that he was pushing making progress and what's happened over the summer is people felt a sense of disappointment and felt we were going backwards because of the rise in cases. then you had the afghanistan
withdrawal. that weighed him down even further. now what president biden needs to do going forward is take advantage of the new decline in covid cases. he's pushing harder for mandatory vaccines. that's something that if that vaccination campaign picks up, he can overcome some of that remaining resistance to vaccine, he has a better chance of getting more confidence. he has to get the economic program through the congress, he has an economic infrastructure bill and safety net bill. if he can unify the democratic party, that will help. >> they're not helping president biden's struggles here. do they realize their efforts
run the risk of nking joe biden's chances of success in 2022 and ultimately 2024? and how close are they to reaching some level of agreement on those two critical bills? >> reporter: i think they've known all along, rosemary, when you have margins as narrow as the democrats have, zero margin for error in the senate. if they want to get something done that republicans oppose, which is most things, they have to get all 50 democrats on the same page. they've got a couple who are of a distinctly different view than the rest of the overwhelming caucus. the same with the house. they can only lose three in the house and get their program through. that means any faction within the party can hold up progress. it's been very difficult. they did get the bipartisan
infrastructure through the senate. they want to hold it up in the house. i do think they're closer than they were a month ago and the negotiations have really kicked into gear between the progressives and moderates. democrats are looking at the month of october as a rough window to when they can get this done. i think the odds are still in joe biden's favor that by the end of the month he should have an agreement ordeal across the democratic party. >> that quinnipiac poll we mentioned shows that of all the main issues being tackled right now, president biden received 48% support for his handling of the pandemic. immigration is his weakest issue with only 25% support for his handling of what's happening at the southern border. it is a tough issue, isn't it? but what does he need to do to try to turn this around? >> it's an extremely tough issue as you mentioned, especially for
the democratic party. when you are the president and you're setting the party, you want to set the agenda. the immigration is where there is a segment of voters who are unfavorably inclined towards rising levels of illegal immigration. joe biden needs to try to both restore control of the border, which is something that a president really has some amount of control over because you have a lot of people who want to come into the united states, but also de-emphasize the issue. that is why he's not gone to the border, for example, because he's trying not to raise attention to that issue. while they do try to change some of donald trump's policies, they haven't changed them entirely. that's going to remain a tough one for biden and he's going to have to manage that the best he can. >> john harwood, good to talk
with you. appreciate it. >> you bet. china is lashing out at taiwan's president saying her speech during the island's national day celebration distorted facts and incited violence. the president spoke sunday amid high contentions with beijing saying the self-governing island will defend its way of life and won't bow to pressure. this came after china's president vowed to pursue a peaceful reunification with taiwan. >> translator: no one should under estimate the resolve, the will and the ability of the chinese people to resolve national sovereignty and territorial unity. this can be realized. >> translator: we hope for an easing of relations and will not act rashly, but there should be absolutely no illusions that the taiwanese people will bow to
pressure. >> cnn's ivan watson is tracking developments and joins you now live from hong kong. good to see you, ivan. tensions between china and taiwan rachetting up here. what's the biggest issue if this gets out of hand? >> reporter: well, you've got this very unequal contest here. on the one hand, you have mainland china which dwarfs taiwan with its leaders saying succumb, submit, become part of our one party system. on the other hand you have a democratically elected president in taiwan who is saying we want to preserve our democratic freedoms and telling the world we are the front line of defense against authoritarianism. take a listen to what else the president had to say.
>> translator: nobody forced taiwan to take the path china laid out for us. this is because the path are neither a free and democratic way of life for taiwan nor sovereignty of 23 million people. >> reporter: and the kind of war of words going back and forth across the taiwan straits, we've had a reaction today from beijing saying -- calling the taiwanese president kind of a provocateur, calling her a secessionist even though they have had no control over taiwan ever since nationalist fled to taiwan in 1949, but the chinese military flew three war planes into tie juan's air defense identification zone on sunday as taiwan was celebrating the national day and that came after record number of military flights into that adiz earlier
in the week. so that's part of what has attracted more attention and why senior taiwanese officials say this is the worst they've seen relations across the straits in 40 years. >> ivan, if they were to engage in conflict either through some miscalculation or for any other reason, taiwan would be no match for china's military might as you touched on. why is the president pushing back so defiantly here? >> reporter: well, i mean, her argument is let's maintain the status quo and that means not becoming part of communist china and china is accusing her of ramping up the tension. so it's a war of two different flair tifs right now. china's insistance that taiwan is a break away region of its
own territory extends around the world. it's basically warning every other country around the world, don't you dare recognize taiwanese sovereignty. that goes to the u.s., of course, that maintains a policy of strategic ambiguity. we're not going to recognize them as an independent state. we're going to recognize one china policy but we will recognize them to self-defense. the u.s. sells them weapons much to the chagrin of the chinese central government and the u.s. also routinely sails warships through the taiwan straits which really irritates the chinese. this goes further. china does not want taiwan recognized in the united nations system, not by the world health organization even by the height of a once in a century pandemic with covid and that goes to tiny countries like lithuania, tiny
baltic state of some 4 million people that said it would welcome, accept a taiwanese office in its capitol. china protested and demanded the withdrawal of ambassadors from each other's capitols. that shows the lengths they will go to refuse taiwan any recognition at all anywhere around the world. back to you. >> ivan watson monitoring these rising tensions from hong kong. part of the u.s. are dealing with severe weather, including tornadoes. we will get the latest from the cnn weather center just ahead. instantly clear everyday congestion with vicks sinex saline. for fast drug free relief vicks sinex. instantly clear everyday congestion. and d try vicks sinex children's saline. safe and g gentle relief for children's noses. it's sleep number's fall sale on the sleep numberer 360 smart b. it helps keep you effortlessly comfortable by sensing your movements

blocks of lava as large as three story buildings have rolled down the mountain side on the island of la palma. tremors are still being felt. 6,000 people are being forced from their homes and more than 3,000 buildings have been destroyed. sunday was the second day the central u.s. has been hit by severe weather. the national weather service reported at least nine tornadoes in oklahoma on sunday night. line of severe thunderstorms has been moving through the region. the risk of severe weather is now shifting though. let's turn to meteorologist tyler malden watching this very closely. what are you seeing? >> hi, rosemary. those severe thunderstorms are beginning to move out of oklahoma. as you see with the image behind me, the storms are stretching from basically kansas city all the way down to houston.
we'll zoom into the area with the red shading. that's where portions of oklahoma, southeast oklahoma, arkansas, portions of louisiana and texas as well. in total we have seen ten tornado reports, 29 severe winter reports and large hail. this system is moving to the northeast. level 2 out of 5 risk for portions of the midwest and great lakes on monday. large hail and damaging wind are the main threats here, but it's not over for the central u.s. here in the plains we are looking at a level 3 out of 5 risk for tuesday. large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes are the threat with this setup. the reason why we're seeing this setup coming our way on tuesday is because of what's developing
out west. we have our first winter like storm dropping a lot more snowfall on tuesday and wednesday. when you get the clash and air masses, the cold canadian air coming down from the north, you have the warm, humid air rising from the south, well, that clash causes severe weather and geographically here in the u.s. we are set up for this clash to occur twice a year. the first time is the primary tornado season running march to june and the secondary season is right now in october and november. we have two tornado seasons. the main areas to see the clashes in the air masses are these areas here. you've all heard of tornado alli. rosemary, what about dixie alli here in the southeastern u.s.? >> tyler malden, thank you for
keeping an eye on that. next here on "cnn newsroom." he waited 90 years to make it into space. now he'll have to wait a little longer. more on why william shatner's liftoff is being delayed and what he has to say about his flight. back in just a moment. oof. you are busy working parenting, problem solving. at new chapter vitamin's we have been busy too. innovating, sourcing organic ingredients testing them... and fermenting. fermenting? yeah, like kombucha or yogurt. and we formulate everything. so, your body can really truly absorb the natural goodness. that's what we do. so you can do you. new chapter. wellness well done like many people with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis
or crohn's disease, i was there. be right back. but my symptoms were keeping me from where i needed to be. so i talked to my doctor and learned humira is the #1 prescribed biologic for people with uc or crohn's disease. and humira helps people achieve remission that can last, so you can experience few or no symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections, including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. learn how abbvie could help you save on humira. we don't use just any wipe,
