mob, but there was a new development today that has significantly advanced this. tell us what happened. >> reporter: a couple of them, norah, capitol police told us that they are investigating this, and house speaker nancy pelosi said there will be consequences for any member of congress who provided tours or reconnaissance for any of these rioters the day before the uprising. take a listen. >> if, in fact, it is found that members of congress were accomplices to this insurrection, if they aided and abetted the crime, there may have to be actions taken beyond the congress in terms of prosecution. >> reporter: several lawmakers or their aides have told us that they saw large groups in house office buildings, in violation of house rules, the day before the riots, norah.
>> o'donnell: and, nancy, i understand that you have some new reporting on the timing of a senate trial for president trump. >> reporter: that's right. we've learned that one option under consideration right now would be to wait a couple of days after the inauguration of president-elect biden so that the senate can focus on confirming some of his most high-profile cabinet nominees first, before starting the trial. norah. >> o'donnell: nancy cordes, thank you. ptonight, the c.d.c. is warning the new, highly contagious variant of coronavirus could lead to a sharp increase in cases, and it comes as the u.s. struggles to ramp up vaccine distribution. here in the u.s., more than 12 million doses have been given but many americans may now have to wait longer for theirs. here's cbs' nikki battiste. >> reporter: in the rush to vaccinate, lines growing long, patience running short. >> they said come at another time, we are overwhelmed. >> reporter: some in new york had appointments but they were turned away. >> people will die because of this failure. >> reporter: then suddenly, this
morning, another hospital announcing 1,500 available doses. lines stretched around the block. >> it's just absolute shame on america that this is how the rollout of this vaccine is going. >> reporter: how would you describe all of it? >> terrible. i mean, i hate to say this, but i think the whole thing is a mess. >> here we are. we're getting it. and it's just luck. >> reporter: one problem is that states only received a fraction of the doses they were expecting. 20 million doses were promised to be administered by the end of december. today, less than 13 million have actually been given. then, in what appeared to be a move designed to ease the backlog, health and human services secretary alex azar announced this on tuesday: >> we are releasing the entire supply we have for order by states rather than holding second doses in physical reserve. >> reporter: not true, say the governors of oregon and colorado. >> we were lied to with plans of the administration to release reserve doses.
>> reporter: but pfizer, in a statement to cbs news, says, "'operation warp speed' has asked us to start shipping second doses only recently. as a result, we have on hand all the second doses of the previous shipment to the u.s." what do you say to americans who are just worried about getting the vaccine? >> help is coming. more vaccine doses are being made. most americans will start getting access to vaccines late spring into summer. >> reporter: here in new york city, vaccine supply is so low, the mayor says they'll run out next week. mount sinai hospital had to cancel all vaccine appointments scheduled through tuesday.ay. norah. >> o'donnell: really awful. nikki battiste, thank you. today, president-elect joe biden detailed his plan to speed up vaccinations, and we have new details about the first high- level call between the outgoing and incoming administrations. here's cbs' weijia jiang. >> reporter: just days before departing the white house, vice
president mike pence has finally called his successor, vice president-elect kamala harris, to say congratulations. president trump has so far refused to do the same with president-elect joe biden and plans to leave the white house early wednesday morning for florida, skipping all of the traditional inauguration day festivities. he does plan a military-style send-off for himself just before his final flight on air force one. mr. trump's absence in the final days has left pence as the public face of the administration, with washington on lockdown, still reeling from the capitol assault. >> have you spoken with pence? >> reporter: today, in delaware, the president-elect was focused on his promise to deliver 100 million shots of the covid-19 vaccine in the first 100 days of his presidency. >> truthfully, we remain in a very dark winter.
>> reporter: mr. biden plans to use fema to mobilize thousands of staff members to create more vaccination sites, use the defense production act to increase supplies, and train 100,000 new workers to administer the shots. >> this is a time to set big goals, to pursue them with courage and conviction, because the health of the nation is literally at stake. >> reporter: the president-elect also said it was shocking to see some republican members of congress refusing to wear a mask during the riots. >> what the hell is the matter with them? it's time to grow up. >> reporter: today, mr. biden said he feels safe attending the inauguration based on the intel he has received, and we learned this weekend he plans to put the final touches on his address. norah. >> o'donnell: weijia jiang, thank you. and there is still much more news ahead on tonight's "cbs evening news." 25 million americans face blinding snow and winds topping

captioning sponsored by cbs captioned by media access group at wgbh program is a paid advertisement for nuwave oxypure smart air purifier sponsored by nuwave llc, featuring deborah norville on award winning journalist and new york times bestselling author. - we are all living in strange and unsettling times. never in history has everyone on the planet been challenged by the same thing. covid-19 has changed the way we work, the way we interact and we're all still trying to figure out what it means for our future. amidst the uncertainty, all of us are trying to take care of our families as best as possible. i've lost track of how many masks i've made and we've all been wiping down door knobs and surfaces. and if you're out of hand sanitizer, you just make your own. but remember, the covid-19 virus can be airborne. if there a way to clean the air. coming up, we'll learn about the nuwave oxypure air purifier. we'll hear from an expert who says
this isn't just an air purifier, but an important tool to protect your family so you can breathe easier during these troubling times. - [announcer] this is a special health report on the safety of air quality in your home. as you're watching tv right now, take a deep breath. how clean is the air you just breathed? the air in your home may look clean to the naked eye, but look closer. the air in your home likely contains viruses, pollen, mold, dust, bacteria, pet dander, germs and chemicals. introducing the nuwave nuwave oxypure smart air purifier. the most advanced air purifier on the market today. oxypure delivers healthier, safer and cleaner air for you and your family. oxypure has been proven to capture airborne bacteria and viruses tested as small as 0.09 microns. - pandenic's very scary right now and clean air is important to me because i have a two year old and i do have one on the way. oxypure makes sure that our air in our house is clean
and that is a huge relief to me, knowing that my daughter is breathing in clean air. - i think having clean air in our home has always been a priority to us. the oxypure really took the cleaning of the air to a completely differently level. - [announcer] oxypure is no ordinary air purifier. it features an unprecedented five-stage filter system to capture more harmful particles than ever before. that will deliver huge relief for those who suffer from seasonal allergies and asthma. oxypure also removes pet dander and pet odors. coming up on today's show, we're talking to burt ward, robin, the boy wonder, batman's sidekick from the famed "batman" tv series and founder of gentle giants dog and puppy food. see how he uses oxypure to keep his home and rescue healthier and to clean hair and dust out of the air. now, here's your host, deborah norville. - hello and welcome. when's the last time you wondered about the air quality in your home. perhaps since the days of the pandemic, you actually have wondered if there were a way
to keep your home healthier and safer. today, we're going to learn about the nuwave oxypure air purifier. when there's a spill on the counter, it's easy to see what to clean, but you can't see viruses or microorganisms or pollutants in the air. and according to the environmental protection agency, they're there. in an agency report on air quality, the epa advised that indoor air, the air inside your home could have up to five times more pollutants than what's outside, five times. the world health organization advises that particulate matter in the air can penetrate deep into the lungs, entering the body affecting the cardiovascular and other systems. so air may look clean, but this really can be a situation where what you can't see can hurt you. in addition to hosting potentially dangerous viruses like coronavirus and influenza, the epa says poor household air can be a cause of eye, nose, or throat irritations or headaches and dizziness,
all big problems for those with allergies,. the people at nuwave say they've found a solution, the oxypure air purifier. they say it's proven to remove pathogens in the air. we'll hear from an expert about those claims in just a moment, but first, hear from these people currently using oxypure. - the best thing about this oxypure purifier is knowing that it works. when my husband comes in after barbecuing steaks or hamburgers and hotdogs, sets them on the counter and this unit goes off, we know it's purifying the air. that really gives us peace of mind. - joining me now is oxypure expert beau rials to explain how the nuwave oxypure works. bau, good to have you here. - deborah, it's great to be here. - first question air purifiers are pretty basic, right? dirty air goes in, clean air comes out. - actually not at all. in fact, many air purifiers have a real problem, deborah. you see, they're designed to catch larger particles like tobacco, smoke, dust and pollen,
which are much bigger than pathogens. so things that are very small, like viruses and germs can often pass right through those filters well, the oxypure on the other hand was designed to not only be highly effective against tobacco, smoke, dust and pollen, but also to target and actually remove viruses and germs as well. - if viruses and germs can pass through a filter, it sort of defeats the purpose of having an air purifier. - exactly right. and that's why i'm so excited about the nuwave oxypure smart air purifier from nuwave. now, everyone knows nuwave as a leader in innovation. and now, we have developed an air purifier that's simply light years ahead of competitors. for example, oxypure has not one filter, not two, not three. it has a five-stage filter system. - and each of those five does something different, i assume. - absolutely. for example, one of those stages is the bioguard filter. now get this deborah. it uses an 8,000 volt electrostatic charge
to actually clear 99.68% of viruses like h3n2 plus 99.99% of bacteria like staph and mold like a. niger. - does it remove coronavirus? - it absolutely does. deborah, in recent scientific testing done by the university of minnesota particle calibration laboratory, it was proven that oxypure eliminated 98.24% of porcine respiratory corona virus from the air. watch this. - my name is chris hogan. i'm a professor of mechanical engineering at the university of minnesota. one of the main research thrusts of my lab group test conoly specically, including infectious particles with viable viruses in them, from the air that we breathe. and we were able to do a test where we aerosolized high concentration solution of porcine corona virus
into very small droplets. when we did that particular set of tests on the oxypure, we got an overall removal efficiency of 98%. it's because it uses multiple control technologies in it. first, the air flow passes through an electrostatic precipitator. this is the device which is designed to first ionize particles, so that they'll move in an electric field. and then there is a high efficiency particulate air filter integrated with an activated carbon filter. for particle removal, the more important part is the high efficiency particulate air filter which to have that rating, must be able to remove 99.97% of particles at 300 nanometers. those two technologies together will be extremely efficient in combination and removing particles. - well, it removes the corona virus, that is a game changer. - plus relief to allergy sufferers, less irritation in your eyes and then your nose. you may also feel less tired and more energized. - all right, well, let's hear from some more people
who are already using the oxypure. - in march, i came down with covid-19. my husband was in the high risk category. it was really important to us to be able to keep a clean, sanitized, and more importantly, a safe environment. the oxypure actually helped me to do that. - well, at first i was afraid to come to work and we don't all know what we're all doing every day and who we're coming into contact with. but once tommy told me about oxypure, i felt reassured. - when we come back, we'll talk with burt ward. he played robin on the old "batman" tv series and he says, the oxypure is a must for pet owners. but first, this. - [announcer] take a deep breath. the air you just breathed could contain viruses, pollen, and all kinds of chemicals. the average ican snds about 90% of their life indoors.
and the epa says the air in your home can have as much as five times more pollutants than outdoors. that's a big problem for everyone because we're now spending even more time shuttered at home with more serious airborne dangers than ever. and if you have allergies or respiratory illness, those pollutants can make your symptoms worse. introducing the nuwave oxypure smart air purifier, the most advanced home air purifier ever created. oxypure delivers healthier, cleaner, and purified air for you and your family. most other air cleaners are designed to catch large particles, but things that are tiny like dangerous viruses can often pass through filters back into the air you breathe, but oxypure's bioguard filter is designed to capture from the air even the tiniest microscopic airborne particles, as small as 0.09 microns, even viruses. that's three times smaller than standard air purifiers. in fact, in a recent independent third party test to determine the effectiveness of oxypure in removing porcine respiratory corona virus
conducted by the university of minnesota, it was proven that oxypure eliminated 98.24% of porcine respiratory corona virus from the air on the first pass, at the lowest setting and is calculated to capture 99.999% of porcine respiratory corona virus in a 1200 square feet room within six hours. that's right. it eliminates virtually all the airborne corona virus. plus oxypure removes over 99% of the airborne h3n2 into flu virus and bacteria like staph and black mold. oxypure features a five-stage filter system, making it the most advanced air purifier available. a stainless steel pre-filter collects large particles. the bioguard filter captures minute dust particles from the air you breathe. the ozone emission removal filter removes dangerous ozone the two-stage hepa and carbon filter collects pollen,
allergens, pet dander, vocs, odors, and smoke. look at how quickly oxypure removes thick smoke. it's a must for anyone near wildfires, worried about smoke in the air. the bioguard filter only needs cleaning every three to six months. just rinse it with any detergent. you can use it over and over. in fact, we guarantee the bioguard filter will work for up to 20 years, saving you money for years to come. the nuwave of oxypure has 360 degree air intake. air comes in to be cleaned from all sides. it's effective for large spaces up to 1200 square feet with two air changes per hour. oxypure is a smart air purifier. turn it on auto and a built-in sensor monitors air quality, and automatically adjusts the fan speed when it senses particles or odors in your air. that includes automatically adjusting the speed when it senses pet owners or pet dander in the air, making oxypure a must have for pet owners to keep their air clean. select the turbo mode to remove kitchen odors. it even removes 100% of dust particles in the air
