many eyes on the dry run especially with that death toll soaring. this morning, the cdc estimating up to 329,000 americans could be dead by the day after christmas from covid since the start of the pandemic. experts are saying the darkest days of the pandemic are ahead with the u.s. shattering records in the number of covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths. on thursday, as l.a. county posted a new record number of cases, the highest since the pandemic began, california's governor warning the state's 40 million residents to expect another lockdown. >> we do not anticipate having to do this once again, but we really all need to step up. >> reporter: the state divided into five regions and if remaining icu capacity falls below 15%, it would trigger a three-week stay-at-home order in that section of the state which would mean closing bars, wineries, nail and hair salons,

the extraordinary measures under way to make sure the vaccines get to the american people. gio benitez joins us from inside the united facility in chicago. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, cecilia, good morning. we are inside the belly of a 777, and united tells us in each plane they're going to be able to fit more than a million doses of vaccine but the challenge here is to keep them cold enough. so take a look at this because we actually got a tour of that cold storage facility here in chicago. united is going to be using this facility to sort the vaccines and they'll be transported in refrigerated shipping containers. at up to 94 degrees negative. if they have to be stored they'll be kept in even larger refrigerators. now, this is an operation unlike any other in american history and keep in mind right now we are inside a passenger plane, okay. the seats are just above us but when the vaccines are in here, this plane is going to be empty. there's not going to be any
passengers on board to get these vaccines across the country as soon as possible, cecilia, if the fda gives them that green light. >> i was surprised to hear you were telling us that this is not the first time these airlines have transported medicines at this temperature. >> reporter: yeah, it's really incredible because united says that they do this all the time. they transport pharmaceuticals at ultra cold temperatures. now, the difference here is the scale. we are talking about millions of vaccines. so really the race is on to get more freezers here. >> okay, thanks so much. george? we'll go to the transition and president-elect biden laying out more plans to fight the pandemic, calling on all americans to wear masks for his first 100 days and announcing he'll keep dr. fauci as a top adviser. mary bruce is in washington with the very latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george. well, joe biden's top priority is developing a strategy to tackle this pandemic and now he's starting to spell out the steps he will take on day one while still acknowledging the very long road ahead.
this morning, as the nation grapples with the resurgent coronavirus crisis, president-elect joe biden says when he takes office he'll ask all americans to do one simple thing to stay safe. >> i'm going to ask the public for 100 days to mask. just 100 days, to mask. not forever. >> reporter: vice president-elect kamala harris saying their administration's strategy for confronting the pandemic is just one of the many changes to come. >> there couldn't be a more extreme exercise in stark contrast between the current occupant of the white house and the next occupant of the white house. >> reporter: but biden is asking one member of the trump white house coronavirus task force the stay on the job, dr. anthony fauci. biden extending the invitation during their first meeting since the election and offering fauci a promotion. >> i asked him to stay on in the exact same role he's had for the past several presidents, and i asked him to be the chief
medical adviser to me as well. >> reporter: biden is looking to build confidence in a vaccine. three former presidents, clinton, bush and obama, all say they're all willing to be vaccinated on camera before the american people. biden now promising to do the same. >> when dr. fauci says we have a vaccine that is safe, that's the moment in which i will stand before the public and it's important to communicate to the american people it's safe. it's safe to do this. >> reporter: but biden is stressing that the rollout will be a monumental challenge and says his administration can't do it alone. >> it's an incredibly expensive proposition and an incredibly expensive proposition. that's why we're continuing to hope that the senate does something and responds to the immediate need to provide dollars. >> reporter: biden is now backing this new $900 billion bipartisan compromise bill to finally provide some covid relief funding. but he is going to want to push congress to do more and like the rest of his agenda that will hinge on who controls the senate. george?
>> we know president trump is heading to georgia tomorrow to campaign for the republican candidates for that senate in the runoff on january 5th and it comes as a lot of his allies are worried that the attacks he's made on the election system in georgia is going to make it harder for those candidates. >> reporter: george, there is real concern the president's false claims of voter fraud could suppress voter turnout among republicans. the president is basically trying to have it both ways. on one hand saying the system -- falsely saying the system was rigged against him while also going to be out urging people to get out and vote. democrats are also well aware of what's on the line here sending out their heavy hitters, former president obama expected to try to get the vote out as well. >> mary bruce, thanks very much. cecelia? we turn to politicians behaving badly. a case of do as i say, not as i do, so to speak. the mayor of austin is under fire right now after telling his constituents to stay home and he went on a vacation to mexico. t.j. holmes is here with more. he's not the only one out there. >> the austin mayor didn't tell
people to stay home and then go on vacation. he told people to stay home while he was on vacation, chilling in mexico, and he is not the only one here. the only politician who says to one of us do one thing and getting caught doing another. growing outrage this morning over one texas politician's decision to defy his own advice to stay home. as covid-19 cases rise across the country austin mayor steve adler has urged residents not to travel. >> we need to, you know, stay home if you can. do everything you can to try to keep the numbers down. this is not the time to relax. >> reporter: turns out he sent that message not from home, but while vacationing with his family in cabo san lucas. he and his family traveled to mexico following his daughter's wedding in austin. this all happened last month, and the trip was only learned about earlier this week. the mayor issued this apology wednesday. >> i regret that travel. i wouldn't travel now. it was a lapse in judgment. and i want you to know that i
apologize. >> reporter: online the mayor met with anger and mockery. >> and now for an emergency announcement from the mayor. >> reporter: with some pointing out that like many things in 2020, "the simpsons" aired this. >> because of the epidemic i have canceled my vacation to the bahamas. i shall not leave the city. hey, you, get that steel drum out of the mayor's office. >> reporter: for those who live or work in austin like this teacher, the mayor's actions are nothing to laugh about. >> i can't leave my home. my immune system is compromised. i'd like a vacation. i'd like a vacation from this nightmare. >> reporter: adler isn't the only one. california governor gavin newsom called out for violating his own guidelines by attending a birthday party maskless and not social distancing. >> as soon as i sat down at the larger table, i realized it was a little larger group than i had anticipated. >> reporter: denver's mayor also apologized for jumping on a
plane to mississippi just 30 minutes after urging people not to travel for thanksgiving. later tweeting, i humbly ask you to forgive decisions borne out of my heart and not my head. and, guys, austin, texas, travis county, while the mayor was on vacation the month of november their covid cases quadrupled. >> wow, all right. >> just going to shake my head at this story, yikes. thanks. >> thank you, t.j. >> you got it. now we go to the dangerous wildfires erupting in southern california, fueled by up to 95-mile-per-hour winds. thousands of people forced to evacuate with the coronavirus also surging. will carr has the latest. >> reporter: overnight with flames burning out of control, families are fleeing from the safety of their homes in the middle of the pandemic. >> i didn't know what to do, so i just saw a fire truck go through it and then i followed them through the fire too. >> i could see the red sky and the smoke, and of course, there
was fire trucks and sheriffs' cars all over the place. >> reporter: extreme fire conditions are fueling the bonfire in orange county injuring two firefighters. a lot of this brush hasn't burned in years. you can hear just how hot it is burning through that vegetation. it is essentially jet fuel for this fire. the flames at times pushed by 90-mile-per-hour winds. >> we are surrounded by flames and choking smoke. these flames, you can feel it on your skin, and you can see just how quickly this wind is whipping through this area. >> reporter: winds so strong, they knocked over this tractor trailer in san diego county. this has already been a record-setting wildfire season, and veteran firefighters say there's no end in sight. >> flat out scary. i have never seen it this dry for this long. 4 million acres in the state of california plus setting all records. >> reporter: at this point firefighters in california are exhausted. this has been a historic fire season. we're expecting more bad weather into next week.

chalamet will be available to watch from your couch at home, benefitting consumers, but some movie theaters aren't happy. amc's ceo and president issuing a blistering statement saying, while they agreed to an exception for "wonder woman," vaccines are right around the corner and they will aggressively pursue economic terms that preserve our business. >> put my pennies in my piggy bank. >> reporter: the move also raising the stakes for streaming. >> this announcement is going to change how every other studio releases their movies. there's no doubt about it. >> reporter: abc's parent company disney has previously announced that the highly anticipated pixar film "soul" starring jamie foxx will premiere on disney plus on christmas. >> you know what that is going to say, joe gardner. >> reporter: now this move from warner bros. taking the streaming wars to a new level. >> if this goes on for a year it will be really hard to put that genie back in the bottle. >> reporter: in a statement warner bros. acknowledged, quote, the reality that most theaters in the u.s. will likely operate at reduced capacity
throughout 2021 due to the pandemic. they called their strategy a unique one-year plan. so homemade popcorn for 2021 i guess, guys. >> i guess. it's easy to watch from home. hard to see those theaters boarded up. >> yeah, it is. we have a lot more coming up including a tiger attack at carole baskin's big cat rescue. what she's saying after a volunteer's arm was nearly ripped off. and masking up for winter. is wearing a scarf just as good as wearing a mask? first, let's head over to rob. >> hey, cecilia, we've got ourselves a nor'easter coming this way. it's starting in the southeast. here it is in georgia and alabama and carolinas look for heavy rain and off coast of delaware and tomorrow morning, i-95 will be heavy rain and some snow. winter storm watches for some of new england. the weekend forecast now brought to you by dick's sporting goods.

[ laughter ] >> george, read your headlines. we are following a lot of headlines right now including the latest on the race to roll out the vaccine. united airlines is saying each of their planes can carry more than a million doses of the vaccine. the challenge of course, is keeping them cold enough. they will be transported in
refrigerated shipping containers at negative 94 degrees. also as cases, hospitalizations and deaths shatter records, president-elect joe biden saying once the vaccine is safe, he'll get it on camera and when he takes office he'll ask all americans to wear a face covering for 100 days. and take a look at this. you see a ref completely blindsided right there, tackled by a high school football player in texas. it unfolded after that player was just ejected from the game. the ref was evaluated for the possibility of a concussion and the player was escorted from the field by police. take a look at this. small plane making a crash landing on this highway near minneapolis. oh, man, hit an suv on the road because the pilot said both engines failed. luckily no one in the vehicle or plane was injured. >> make sure you look in that rearview mirror. wow. that'll scare you. we begin with the terrifying attack at the animal sanctuary made famous by "tiger king." a tiger nearly ripping the arm off a volunteer at carole baskin's big cat rescue in florida.
victor oquendo is in miami with more. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning. carole baskin heard the scream, ran over and saw the tiger eventually let go, but that volunteer nearly lost her arm. now an investigation is under way. >> what really sets apart big cat rescue from a zoo is that we are fixing the problem. they are creating the problem. >> reporter: this morning the big cat animal rescue sanctuary made famous by the "tiger king" documentary reeling from a dangerous encounter. >> tell me exactly what happened. >> one of our key folks got bitten by one of our cats. >> reporter: one of the animal sanctuary volunteers, candy cowser, was attempting to feed one of the big cats named kimba when he viciously latched on to cowser nearly tearing off her arm. >> where is the animal now? is it contained? >> yes. >> any serious bleeding? >> yes. >> reporter: while a nurse worked to stop the bleeding someone else used a belt as a tourniquet.
b they reported that candy can move her fingers and her arm is broken in three places adding that her shoulder is badly damaged. baskin releasing audio addressing volunteers following the incident. >> you probably saved her life by doing that. >> yeah. >> thank you for doing that. >> reporter: big cat rescue saying the volunteer broke protocol lead up to the attack saying, it's against proper feeding procedure for anyone to stick any part of their body into a cage with a cat in it. experts saying sanctuaries like big cat rescue provide an unsafe image of big cats that could lead to attacks like this one. >> these are wildcats that have the potential to kill a human being in an instant. >> hey all you cool cats and kittens. >> reporter: baskin who appeared on last season's "dancing with the stars". ♪ what's new >> reporter: gained recognition after the release of netflix's "tiger king" docu-series earlier this year. the show chronicled the tale of

on how to stay both warm and safe as temperatures fall. good morning, erielle. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. as cases of covid-19 skyrocket across the country, experts say wearing the right kind of face mask will be more important than ever this winter. the type of mask you choose and how you wear it are key. with a tidal wave of covid-19 cases surging across the country, health experts are urging proper mask use during the winter months saying it will be critical. >> there really is a difference in using a mask to prevent the spread and the catching of covid-19 versus keeping the air warm and keeping our nose and mouth warm. you cannot simply use a scarf to prevent the spread of covid-19. >> reporter: while wearing a face covering in colder weather may sound convenient and even cozy, experts say simply using a scarf or sweater material won't keep you safe. in a duke university test of 14 commonly used face coverings -- >> you see lots of little particles. >> reporter: -- the thin, single layer neck gator, a popular sporty and winter accessory
created more tiny droplets than speaking without a mask. >> these masks breaking down big droplets into multiple little droplets and, of course, these little droplets could be problematic because they have an easier time being carried away by air. >> reporter: dr. jennifer mose says the best masks are the same ones year round. >> the way that masks protect us best is if the mask is fitting kind of snugly around the nose and around the side of your face. and you really need to make sure your mask is at least two layers. >> reporter: also crucial in the cold winter months keeping your mask dry. >> as we have the paper surgical masks, when those masks get wet, they need to be thrown away. for the cloth mask when those get wet, they need to be laundered right away. either mask when they're wet is no longer effective. >> reporter: and experts say before you head out into the
elements, be sure to put on your mask first and put it on snugly. then you can put on your gloves, your hat, your scarf. if you wear eyeglasses, choose a mask with one of those metal nose strips. it'll keep your glasses from fogging up. guys? >> makes sense. thank you, erielle. coming up later kids and the covid vaccine. the big question parents have about the safety and the timeline as moderna says they're about to test on children. dr. ashton will join us with the latest. coming up next, selena's legacy. our exclusive interview with her family 25 years after her passing and how the singer's -- iconic singer is now reaching a new generation of fans. jake from state farm... after you saved me so much dough on insurance with that "parker promo" i devised a promo for you. here's the deal parker, state farm offers everyone surprisingly great rates. yeh, right. pepperoni pocketz, atomic brownie, cuckoo crustiez... there's no promo. just great rates. and a side of ranch.

this month. what's a realistic time line for kids? >> i've asked dr. fauci and dr. stephen hahn of the fda that question. they both have said clinical trials involving the pediatric age group should start imminently january, february 2021 and then again you need at least two months of safety data in that age group so by the summer which is when the phase 5, phase 4 groups will be rolled out kids will be in that group and we should have good safety data. >> i know when my kids get the flu vaccine they tend to have a stronger reaction. will that hold for this vaccine as well do we think? >> we expect it to, george, in terms of the kids and their immune system. it's important for parents to be aware that they do have a more robust immune response, so it is responsible they could have more symptoms after the vaccine, symptoms like fever, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, and these may last a little longer than they do in adults.
again, not dangerous, but parents want to plan for that, and discuss that with their child's pediatrician. >> you have a new book coming out to help parents. it's called "the new normal: a road map to resilience in the pandemic era." tell us more about it. >> i've heard from so many viewers and patients alike that they are just confused, they want more information than we can generally deliver in a television segment, data is coming in and recommendations are evolving so i really wanted to help people not just learn facts which may be different tomorrow, but learn to teach them how to think like a doctor and evaluate risk for you, for your family about going to work, school, travel, all the things that are part of our normal life in pandemic times. so hopefully it will be a big help. a lot of my conversations with top infectious disease specialists like dr. fauci are in there, so i'm excited about it. >> you help our viewers with it every day.
