because this isn't our network... it's yours. ♪ ♪ gillian: the cdc confirming that the coronavirus is now in at least 25 states plus here in washington d.c. new cases continue to pop up across the country virtually coast to coast, now this includes vermont where health official announced the first presumptive positive earlier this morning. welcome to "america's news headquarters" from washington, d.c., great to be with you, leland, i'm jill january turner. -- gillian turner. leland: they're already canceling church services here in washington, d.c. because the elderly and those who are sick
10:01 am
are really at risk. overnight two people died in washington state from the disease. as of now we have counted 19 american deaths from covid-19. christina coleman tracking all of this from our los angeles bureau. hi, christina. >> reporter: hi, leland. well, as of today, there's been more than 400 cases of the virus here in u.s. california, new york and washington remain the hardest hit states right now. washington leading the nation with 102 cases and 16 fatalities. new york also seeing a jump in cases with at least 89 at this point. that includes an uber driver from queens who likely had contact with multiple people. new york mayor andrew cuomo declared a state of emergency saying it will allow the federal government to respond faster by lifting regular -- regulations. >> we evaluate it literally every single day. you know, you don't want to alarm people, but given the spread we see, you know,
10:02 am
anything's possible, and that's the reason why we've got to be prepared to take whatever action is appropriate to contain and mitigate the outbreak. >> reporter: worldwide there's now more than 105,000 cases of the virus in at least 95 countries and here in the u.s. florida had two covid-19 deaths. in florida, the first coronavirus deaths on the east coast. vice president mike pence was briefed by executives and port directors in florida yesterday on additional measures that should be taken on cruise lines to insure safety during the rapid, worldwide spread of this illness. in florida over 3500 passengers and crew remain aboard the regal princess cruise ship about 25 miles off the coast of miami, they're awaiting test results from two crew members who had transferred onto that ship from the grand princess off the coast of california right now. leland? leland: we'll talk to a doc who treated some of the very first
10:03 am
cases later in the show. christina, thank you. ♪ ♪ gillian: over to the trail now, we're going to get a live look at grand rapids, michigan, where bernie sanders is gearing up to address supporters ahead of tuesday's primary. ellison barber is in mississippi just a few miles north of where bernie's main competition, joe biden, is also going to be rally aring today. she's going to cover all of that for us. hi, ellison. >> reporter: hey, gillian. yeah, former vice president joe biden will be here at this college in just a couple of hours to speak to some of his supporters. mississippi is one of six states that will vote on tuesday. biden is currently leading in the delegate count, but senator bernie sanders is, of course, right at his heels. the former vice president started today by adding another name to his list of rivals turned supporters, senator kamala harris. >> a leader who really does care about the people and who can,
10:04 am
therefore, unify the people. and i believe joe can do that. i am supporting joe because i believe that he is a man who lives his life with great dignity, he is a public servant who has always worked for the best of who we are as a nation, and we need that right now. there is so much at stake in this election, guys. leland: looks like we have lost ellison's signal from mississippi. joe biden will be there later. we're going to check back in with her from the trail, kamala harris' video there after she just endorsed the former vice president. ellison? >> reporter: hey, leland are. i -- [laughter] all right. yeah. kamala harris made that endorsement for former vice president biden, i have no idea where we are. we'll try to pick it back up.
10:05 am
senator bernie sanders, obviously, biden's primary rifle at this point -- rival at this point. he was on "fox news sunday," increasely trying to draw a contrast between himself and biden. listen here. >> it is important for the voters of this country to ask themselves two questions. number one, which candidate is stronger in terms of being able to defeat trump and, number two, what are the differences. sometimes joe is taking a little bit of credit as vice president for initiatives that were led by president obama and by many members of the congress. >> reporter: and reverend jesse jackson endorsed senator sanders today. another endorsement that biden picked up was governor of massachusetts, former massachusetts governor deval patrick. he is going to be in mississippi today campaigning with former vice president joe biden. leland, gillian? leland: we'll see what that does for the african-american vote, especially in mississippi.
10:06 am
ellison barber on the trail, thank you. with that, we bring in democrat michigan congresswoman debbie dingell. nice to see you, ma'am, as always. we appreciate it. i know you haven't endorsed anybody in the race and you're not going to, but how about a prediction from michigan? >> so if i had to guess today -- and four years ago i guessed that bernie sanders would win this primary and everybody thought i was crazy then too -- i think he is likely to win my district. but i think senator -- or vice president biden is likely to win the state right now. there's been a lot of shift in momentum. a although senator sanders is working the state hard. he is really traveling around, he's got a fox town hall tomorrow night -- leland: right. >> and in this climate that we're in right now, ground shifts very quickly. so -- leland: that is an excellent point. talk to me about how important you think the endorsements are. you've got jesse jackson there in grand rapids endorsing
10:07 am
senator sanders. vice president picked up a lot of key endorsements from the african-american community, and that's a key constituency e in michigan. >> senator biden, i wish he had been able to get to detroit earlier than he will tomorrow. he'll do a detroit rally. i don't wish -- i shouldn't say it that way. i want everybody here in michigan on the ground. senator sanders was in detroit on friday night and got a great turnout. so i think that a lot of surrogates are there for vice president biden in detroit. i suspect that detroit will probably end up going with biden, but i don't know. i'm really hearing a lot of -- and i'll tell you something, the young people in my district strongly for bernie, senator sander. as are the muslims in deerborn. leland: right. >> and, quite frankly, a lot of down river trump voters are voting for him -- leland: the trump voters that
10:08 am
you hear are going to talk to, going to vote for sanders that you've talked to -- and you admittedly e and rightly called in 2016 that trump was going to win michigan, so it's worth listening to your insights and analysis on this. that because they think bernie will be easier for president trump to one and beat in 2020 come november, or do you think it is because these are trump voters who are disgusted with president trump and are now flopping to bernie in. >> so i would actually say some of them are changing to bear, many of them -- to bear knit. i mean, quite frankly, you've heard president trump or some republicans said that they should vote for senator sanders now because they think he's easier to beat. leland: the president talked about that at a rally -- >> yeah. leland: -- before either super tuesday or south carolina. i think it was before with south carolina. this is bernie sanders talking about what you just mentioned, which is momentum right now, in michigan. take a listen. >> i'm feeling good about the
10:09 am
momentum that we have. i think we're going to do well on tuesday, and i think we're going to beat biden. chris: beat biden in michigan? >> yes, i do. i think the polling, young, last time around as you indicated, it was seen as a big upset because polling had us down literally by 20 points one day before the election. leland: that was chris wallace on "fox news sunday," and you could see perhaps the skepticism in chris' voice about beating biden in michigan. is michigan must-win for bernie? >> i think it's a very critical state for him to win. i think if he does not win it this time because he won it four years ago, and i think's why you see him in the state for four days. i said unfortunately vice president biden's not coming to detroit, i don't want candidates to blow off michigan the way they did four years ago. it's one of the reasons we lost. president trump didn't. he came and he came and he came and, quite frankly, vice president pence has been here
10:10 am
multiple times in the last few months, and the president's been in michigan twice. we need people to not blow off midwest states. i feel strongly are about michigan because i'm from here. but to me, you know, sometimes the coasts tend to get all the attention. the midwest has a lot of good working men and women who want people to care about just those everyday economic issues, and that's what democratic candidates have to remember and talk about if we're going to win in november. leland: interestingly enough, winning in november is the number one issue for democratic primary voters in michigan. take a look at this latest poll from click on 40% of michigan primary voters, 39.3, say beating trump is the number one issue. health care, 18.5%. economy and jobs, 13%. environment, 8.7%. typically everyone always says it's the economy, stupid, to quote james carville circa 1992. i wonder, though, is is the reason economy and jobs is the
10:11 am
third issue because the economy in michigan under president trump's doing pretty well? >> i would actually say that you haven't lost the insecurity of autoworkers from ten years ago. we have a u.s. steel plant, half of the workers live in my district, 1500 workers are losing their jobs. we've had awe auto plants that have been closing. but i think people -- i've said this to you four years ago, i think a lot of people were tired of partisan bickering, tired of politicians not getting something done, and they thought that president trump would shake up the system and be a different president. he has shaken up the system -- [laughter] he is a different kind of president, but i also think that people really don't like the fear and hatred that they see. and so you come into, there's been a lot of targeting of freedom of religion, the iraqi community strongly supported him four years ago. they've not seen him keep those promises. i think a lot of people want to
10:12 am
see calm. leland: right. >> they want to see civility and that matters. leland: civility has not gotten better and partisan birking either in the last few -- bickering. congresswoman, we appreciate your time, the as always. safe travels back there to d.c. >> thank you. leland: appreciate your insights, as always. >> thank you. you too. leland: chris wallace talking to bernie sanders on "fox news sunday," 2 p.m. eastern. senator sanders will also join bret and martha tomorrow for a town hall as noted by the congresswoman in detroit. that's at 6:30p.m. eastern right here on the fox news channel. ♪ gillian: a large chunk of northern italy now on lockdown, about 16 million people there are facing quarantine and travel restrictions. officials say it's really their best chance left to try to stop the coronavirus from spreading even further across the country.
10:13 am
amy if kellogg joins us from florence. amy? >> reporter: that's right. tuscany, gillian, is not included in the quarantine. now, officials in italy thought at this point sort of two weeks into when the spread of the krone a that virus really took off they'd be at a point where they would be seeing a town turn and could -- downturn and could possibly revive some of the reinstruct thive measures. instead, they had to double down in the early hours of the morning. they did this for two reasons. one is, of course, to stop the spread of the virus by making this huge part of italy a red zone, and the other was to protect the health care service in northern italy which they they had civil protection, the civil response, i should say, is just one step away from a total collapse. now, those draconian measures -- basically locking down a quarter of the italian population -- went into effect in the early hours of the morning.
10:14 am
they were published then officially some hours later. italy is the only other country with coronavirus cases besides china to put such restrictions in place. the pope has also been trying to minimize the movement on st. peter's square or in rome. the vatican very lightly touched by all of this, but nevertheless, big gatherings people are now particularly worried about, churches, church services are being canceled in many parts of the country. churches, however, remain largely open for prayer. there the will be no public gatherings at all until april 3rd in the northern quarantined part of italy, in the red zone. there'll be no weddings, no funerals on top of all the other activities that have been gradually been getting cap selled. >> translator: i surely agree, this virus needs to be limited because the epidemic is spreading too quickly. so in my opinion, these measures are correct. i surely agree even if it will
10:15 am
create some difficulties for us because social life has changed a lot. >> reporter: now, people are just getting used to all of these changes, gillian, and it's not altogether clear just how porous or solid this, the orders will be. there's still been a lot of movement around the country, and the government has said that people with pressing work issues and family issues are exempted. but the bottom line is that it is really causing a lot of chaos and a lot of panic among people who simply don't quite understand at this point the ramifications of such a massive lockdown until april 3rd, if not longer. world health is saying they believe they're taking the right steps. gillian: amy kellogg joining us from florence. thank you. of course, scientists all across the world are now racing to find a vaccine that can help combat the coronavirus in the future.
10:16 am
joining us now to talk about this is david dodd. now, he's a really interesting guest for us, he's the chairman and ceo of geovax cans one of the american companies here in the u.s. that is working to help create this vaccine. david, thanks for joining us today. we keep hearing over and over again from dr. anthony fauci of the national institute of health, from the cdc or and from other public health officials we are at least a year to a year and a half away from the vaccine. from what you know, does that square with that? >> it does square with that. it is typically about a year and a half. i think we're all working to be able to have a vaccine ready for human trials in a year at most, and we're working in that regard. in fact, i'll be in washington, d.c. this week talking to the parties that be relative to the recent $3 billion allocated for r&d for vaccines. we have multiple applications in to be able to advance that. we believe we can move it much faster than the traditional year
10:17 am
and a half plus to a year, maybe even a little bit less. we have three candidates that are moving into initial testing right now. gillian: we heard from israel's foreign ministry earlier this week, they say they're just a couple of weeks out from getting a vaccine completed that they say, best case scenario, would have to go through about three months of trials there. if that's the case, it's putting israel on track faster than pretty much the rest of the world here including the united states. >> the keyword is if that's true. i think what they've done is taken the previously-developed bird sars vaccine, and they're trying to advance that to humans and all. it's probably a worthwhile initiativing but i wouldn't expect it to be ready to go into humans anywhere near in a few weeks or such as that. i think no one in the industry really believes that, but i to think it'll generate some very useful information. gillian: so a couple of days ago
10:18 am
a doctor said in congressional testimony that big pharma companies need to step up to the table. take a listen to what he said, and i want to get your reaction. >> we've got to figure out what the ecosystem is going to be to develop vaccines that are not going to make money. big pharma companies are still not going in, some of the biotechs are starting to because they're trying to really accelerate their technology and, hopefully, to flip it around with something that will make money. we need a new system in place. gillian: basically, big pharma doesn't think they've going to make enough money. >> i disagree with that. we actually feel we're competing with the large players. they have very good technology, they have very deep pockets and all, and they're able to move very quickly and all. and i think working in conjunction with companies such as geovax, we could move much quicker. and i personally am not a believer that anyone would be hesitating because of the degree of profit that's out there.
10:19 am
i think this is a very important medical need. i know of no one in the industry that wouldn't share that,, and i think anyone who can advance a vaccine that can be licensed for human use is going to do fine in the area of profitability. gillian: we're glad to hear you say that. it sounds reassuring at the least to hear your perspective on that. last question for you is your firm is partnering with a chinese vaccine developer in wuhan, china, to like jointly, you know, get a hold on this and develop this vaccine together. are you concerned, do you share president trump's concerns about the national security threat that china poses to the u.s., and do you feel that they're being honest and forthright and you can trust them every step along the way here? >> i think we can trust them as long as we make sure that we're doing our jobs to control the flow of information. and in our collaboration with bravo vax, it's proceeding very open and very good communications and all, but that
10:20 am
collaboration's built upon the geovax is developing the vaccine. and our three vaccine candidates will advance into testing and all at some point we will do parallel paths where they will take the development for china, and we'll proceed on that. but it'll be using our vaccine for which certain proprietary information we would maintain and control, and we would follow that same pathway here in the u.s. and that's why i'll be heading to washington, d.c. this week for discussions to be able to move forward sister quickly. gillian: trust but verify. david dodd, chairman and ceo of geovax, thanks so much for joining us, and thanks for getting in on the race. >> thank you, you're welcome. leland: new reaction from president trump on the coronavirus and how he views its spread throughout the united states. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ >> tech: don't wait for a chip like this to crack your whole windshield. with safelite's exclusive resin, you get a strong repair that you can trust. plus, with most insurance

sanders won back in 2016 in a huge upset over hillary clinton. it was one of the things that really showed the power of his movement. and his ability to organize and also to deliver the youth vote. folks down in ann arbor, the college kids in lansing and also some of the arab communities in the detroit area were key constituents for bernie sanders. the question is, as we watch there reverend king -- reverend jackson, pardon me, on the stump -- is that enough, is that endorsement enough of to mobilize or perhaps fluff over the african-american vote in detroit for sanders? i-jill interesting, the reverend said in a statement earlier today one of the reasons he voted, he's endorsing, excuse me, sanders rather than biden is number one the biden team didn't ask him. the second run is he said the african-american community where he lives doesn't face moderate

10:41 am
durst went into hiding in dallas, texas, posing as an elderly mute woman. police hadn't yet approached berman, although they intended to, and she may have been struggling financially. >> the evidence will show, again without question, that susan knew her killer and that she freely and voluntarily admitted this person into her house. >> reporter: durst was also previously acquitted of killing his former neighbor shot to death nine months after his wife's death. durst said a gun accidentally went off during a struggle, he testified that he dismembered black's body and threw it in the gulf of mexico, but he was acquitted. his defense argued over what previous arguments are admissible in this berman case given that he was never charged in his wife's disappearance and acquitted in black's murder, but

10:50 am
>> well, we had, you know, seen the outbreak in wuhan by reports, and we were aware of how severe the disease appeared to progress in certain patient populations, to our ellerly or have -- elderly with high death rate being reported. is so we knew that this was a new infection that essentially had high morbidity, mortality, and we wanted to make sure we were ready to receive patients, so we had done preparations beforehand to make sure we were ready. when we got the call from cdc that the patient was positive, we were ready to handle him with extreme caution. leland: is there a significant difference in terms of what this disease does to older and already immune-compromised individuals or people with really serious underlying health conditions? is this a lot worse than, say, a really bad innext of influenza? >> i don't think we really know the science behind why folks
10:51 am
that are older or have have medical issues are more at risk. we do know when they become infected, many of them end up in the hospital in icus, and the mortality seems to be quite high in that patient population. that's probably what we're seeing at least locally probably worse than flu in the population. why that is, i don't think we understand quite yet. leland: based on this case you've treated and, obviously, washington state's hit the hardest, and you've all been talking amongst yourselves and other docs in the area. you can call it what you want, but the fear, the panic, the freakout that exists within the normal, healthy population, people are talking about stockpiling toilet paper, is that justified or does there seem to be an overreaction from what we know medically perhaps as justified? >> well, one of the first things i want to discuss is the protective gear that people are buying.
10:52 am
right now there are folks that are buying a lot of masks. the cdc has been very clear that the average person walking the streets is is very low risk in general and is not advised to buy masks out and about -- leland: yeah. we heard from the surgeon general that buying the masks to actually keep them away from the people that need them the most, we had a survivor of the coronavirus, she got it on one of the cruise ships yesterday. take a listen to her experience. >> i had about a three hour fever of not even 100 degrees the night before, and that was it. i have not had one symptom, you know, since then. not one. gillian: each while you had the -- even while you had the virus, at its peak, you're saying you still didn't experience symptoms? >> zero symptoms. gillian: wow. leland: that was jerry e who said she did pilates and yoga while is she had the virus. it important to talk about the people who experience something
10:53 am
akin to the common cold with this. >> yeah, or that's a really good point. most folks that are infected with this virus will have mild disease -- won't need to come to the hospital, won't have to be admitted. and so we're working on in providence is triaging those groups of folks is so that we're keeping a close eye on these people who present for testing to make sure that we keep track of them. we're plugging them into our telehealth program so we can monitor oxygen levels at home and their vital signs to make sure that they don't have ea the klein, and this includes folks over the age of 60 or have other medical problems that put them at high risk. those people at low risk, there's really not much at this point that needs to be done for them in terms of staying home while they're ill. making risk assessment for those who are high risk for severe disease. leland: and, doctor, the people in everett, washington, are better for you and your expertise. to you and your colleagues who are certainly working a lot of
