oxford astrazeneca vaccine was 75% effective against that highly contagious uk variant and so far 8% of the u.s. population has received at least one dose of the vaccine but many americans, millions, are still struggling to get appointments. abc's trevor ault joins us now from yankee stadium, home to a newly open mass vaccination site. trevor, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. you know, with the super bowl tomorrow and the nfl season coming to an end, every nfl stadium will also become available to become a mega vaccination site just like this one here at yankee stadium because while a number of coronavirus metrics are heading in the right direction, the need to vaccinate the american public is as dire as ever. this morning, more positive signs the holiday coronavirus surge is dissipating. hospitalizations nationwide falling 30% the past three weeks and cases nearly havld from their peak a month ago, but deaths remain high.
th tampa, officials are urging people to stay safe for the super bowl. 7,500 vaccinated health care workers will be at the game there. but everyone will be masked and in pods with all contactless transactions. >> we hosted over a million fans this year at various stadiums and we've learned a lot from that experience. we think all of those measures plus the open-air environment will keep everyone safe. >> reporter: this as the cdc reports mask mandates have shown to be associated with a decrease in coronavirus hospitalizations and the vaccine rollout is slowly gaining steam. about 8% of the american population already receiving their first shot. in new york, yankee stadium opening as the latest mass vaccination site, hall of famer mariano rivera urging the bronx community to take advantage. >> now, it's time to support you and let you know it's okay to be vaccinated. i'm in line, okay? when my time comes, i'm in line to get it.
>> reporter: but with considerable demand and a limited supply, many are struggling to get it. t is new jersey grandmaiv >> are seniors, a year is a lot. >> reporter: and overnight the supreme court issued a new ruling on coronavirus restrictions. in a 6-3 vote they're now preventing a ban on indoor church services in some california counties. the court ruled the state can place a cap on the number of people inside. they can even ban singing but they cannot block those services altogether. eva. >> trevor ault for us, thank you. joining us is dr. dan barouch, the doctor who led design efforts for the vaccine alongside johnson & johnson. thank you so much for being with us this morning, doctor. >> thank you, eva. pleasure to be here. >> well, first let's start with the question i think a lot of us
are wondering, do you anticipate that this emergency use authorization that johnson & johnson has now filed will be granted? >> well, as you know j&j applied for emergency authorization last week, and the fda will independently review all of the data and reach its own decision. but we are very happy with the data set. we think it's a very large and strong data set so we are optimistic. if the fda does grant emergency use authorization, this will be the third vaccine to be rolled out in the united states. >> now, you were involved in the development of this vaccine. how confident are you in its ability to protect people from these new variants that we're seeing? >> well, that's an incredibly important question because over the last several months, we've seen the emergence of viral variants some of which are more contagious than the original one and some of which are actually resist tapt or partially resistant to antibodies. so we were very pleased in
our study that showed although there was a slight decrease in overall efficacy, the efficacy against severe covid disease was 85%. and that was actually seen in across the different geographic regions in the united states and latin america and in south africa. in brazil over 70% of the viruses were a circulating resistant variant and in south africa over 95% of the viruses were a circulating resistant variant, so we can be very confident this vaccine even as a single shot vaccine provides very strong protection against severe covid disease, and there were no hospitalizations or deaths in the vaccine group after day 28. >> when you say those numbers a lot of people start to think about the numbers that the other vaccines have released and that the numbers you just gave are actually lower than some of those other vaccines. what do you say to those people who are concerned that this vaccine may not protect them as much as, say, pfizer or moderna? >> well, the pandemic today is a much more complex pandemic than
it was several months ago. so trials conducted now are really a very different ball game than trials conducted last fall. last fall there were no concerns of these emerging variants that are more contagious or even resistant to antibodies, so our study was conducted during the peak global surge in multiple regions of the world. and our study was conducted in the setting of these variants that will likely reduce the efficacy of any of the vaccines. >> dr. barouch, thank you very much for being with us. we appreciate you. dan. >> some encouraging news there, eva. thank you. we also have news this morning on the investigation into that riot at the u.s. capitol. abc news has obtained video from the day of the siege showing roger stone, a confidant of former president donald trump flanked by men wearing insignias of a militia group. abc's faith abubey has more now from capitol hill. faith, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning,
dan. that video raising questions as congressional investigators try to figure out whether ex-president donald trump and his inner circle were directly involved in the preplanning of that capitol insurrection. now, roger stone, trump's close confidant, has admitted that he was in washington the day of the deadly riot. but he has repeatedly said he never left the site of his hotel room until that afternoon to head to the airport. the new video obtained exclusively by abc news putting him outside a hotel here in washington on the morning of that violent insurrection. you can see in that video, stone who was recently pardoned by then president donald trump near men in militia gear. two of them with oath keepers' insignias. and then you hear a man asking stone this --weavthis toda rht >> we shall see. >> reporter: well, it's not clear what exactly they were discussing there, but stone telling abc news people he doesn't know volunteered to provide security for him and his
family after he received threats. the fbi has since arrested five people associated with the oath keepers for their role in s well with roger stone associated with people or posing with people in those photos and those people have now been linked to the riots as well but stone saying that he had no advance knowledge of the insurrection, and that he played no role whatever in the january 6th events. abc news sources also telling us that congressional investigators were poring over that specific video along with several social media videos as they piece together their case against the former president. that impeachment trial beginning in just three days. whit. >> and so many of these videos from that day continue to come out. faith abubey for us in washington, thank you so much. we do want to turn now to celebrating the life of ummer passintor christopher c'el joingfr a look astous care chris, good moin >> reporter: hey, good morning, whit. he did everything from
shakespeare on the broadway stage to "the thorn birds" on tv, but there's little doubt what christopher plummer will be best remembered for, his role in a movie musical that's won the hearts of audiences as few films ever have. while enjoying a long career on the stage and screen, canadian actor christopher plummer would be forever associated with the beloved 1965 film, "the sound of music." >> do you mean to tell me that my children have been roaming about salzburg dressed up in nothing but some old drapes? 46 >> uh-huh. >> reporter: his performance as captain von trapp alongside julie andrews' maria making him a legend to generations of moviegoers. >> do allow me. >> uh-huh. >> reporter: helping to make "the sound of music" as one of the most successful films in hollywood history. the world has lost a consummate actor today, and i have lost a
friend, said julie andrews on friday. i treasure the memories of work taught and the humor and fun we shared through the years. in performances that spanned an amazing 75 years, plummer deployed shakespearean acting skills and on occasion that sly wit. >> in an old house in paris that was covered with vines -- >> reporter: younger audiences would come to recognize his distinctive voice as the narrator of the animated version of "madeleine" and in pixar's "up." >> any last word, frederickson? come on, spit it out! >> reporter: plummer would earn his only academy award in 2012 oldest winner ever of an acting oscar at 82. >> you're only two years older than me, darling. where have you been all my life? >> reporter: most recently plummer delighted audiences as the scheming author at the center of "knives out." >> all those nuns kind of drove me to drink. you know? >> reporter: he was unafraid to be irreverent. >> i remember having to wait for hours before shooting that bloody song. >> reporter: yet as julie andrews would recall their days on set to diane sawyer. >> we became the best of

as we like to call it to give you an idea how cold it is getting. it will only get colder as this polar air mass comes down. minus 31 in chicago by sunday morning. minus 42 in minneapolis, but what's striking about this is not so much how cold it is but for how long it's going to be cold in february. so, we don't typically get them this long. all week long for the upper midwest and even down to the deep south, 10 for a windchill in shreveport. 19 for a windchill potentially friday morning in houston. that will get you shaking in your boots and ten gallon hat for sure. some spreads to the good morning, everyone. saturday here dawning with a lot of sunshine. it's certainly cold in theor bay. a little fog there, but for everyone above average again today. looking more likely we could see some showers into the middle and the latter part of next week. 67 today in oakland. how about that 70, livermore, san jose near that in santa
