the children could be molested, they could be somebody attacking them, bullying them. we've got to find out what the problem is. the other thing is we have to start teaching young people from preschool all the way through the 12th grade of college how to deal with problems. problem solving skills. because we can teach them how to solve the problems at a young age, hopefully they'll learn how to solve a problem when they are engaged in some kind of activity that is aggressive to them in the community. they would have to pick up a handgun or machine gun and use that. because right now young people don't know how to solve a problem. they think the only way of solving it is picking up that firearm and using it. so we have to start teaching them at a very young age, how do you solve a problem when you have them. once we can do that at a young age, we'll have less people
picking up firearms. >> john, i want to thank you. kirsten foye, i want to thank you. i really appreciate your comments. the nypd members of the nypd, we're so grateful you're here. john miller and jeffrey madre. brian williams, thank you for helping us understand what happens in the hospital and the real trauma. chief ramsey, we have you on all the time. you always speak with such authority and of course my colleague, sara sidner out there on the streets almost daily covering these stories. we appreciate you joining us as well. this is a tough conversation that we all that is the only way we're going to get this issue under control. so we've had a productive conversation and i hope we can build on it for the future so thanks to all of my guests, thanks to you for listening and thank you for watching as well.
i'm don lemon. our coverage continues. hello and welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states and all around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom" and i'm rosemary church. the u.s. hits another single day high in new coronavirus cases as some hospitals and intensive care units around the country buckle under the immense pressure infections are putting on the system. this as a potential vaccine shows early promise. researchers say it produced antibodies to the coronavirus and all patients tested in a trial. and a bitter defeat for jeff sessions. he lost his senate bid after his former boss donald trump campaigned against him.
good to have you with us. the daily spike in coronavirus cases in the u.s. is at a record high. more than 67,000 new cases were reported on tuesday alone. that is according to johns hopkins university and given the current surge a new model predicts 224,000 people will die in the u.s. from covid-19 by november 1st. the centers for disease control and prevention is now officially requesting people wear masks to help prevent transmission and top u.s. infectious disease expert dr. anthony fauci said to trust medical experts and avoid political nonsense. >> i believe, for the most part, you can trust respected medical
authorities. you know, i believe i'm one of them so i think you can trust me. but i would stick with respect medical authorities who have a track record of telling the truth. i would say that's the safest bet. >> and there is some hope a vaccine being developed by the biotechnology company moderna is showing early promise in a phase one study. a phase three trial is planned for later this month. april. the vice president was in louisiana today where the average daily case count already eclipsed april. >> because of the unprecedented response marshalled by our president we have more resources than ever before. >> you can't keep telling people everything is just fine and not to worry because this is not a virus that responds to political
speaking points. >> reporter: at least 27 states have now paused or rolled back re-opening but case rates are climbing in 37. more people were reported dead from covid in the past 24 hours in florida than ever before. >> have risen. >> reporter: the governor didn't mention the deaths. a member of florida's cabinet said he lost control. >> governor continues to downplay the seriousness of what's happening here in the state of florida. quite frankly we've seen little to no desantis. los angeles currently threat level orange. >> we're on the border of going to red. red is when everything shuts down again. everything. to our strictest level. >> reporter: we hoped warmth would bring>> i was really one individuals who thought we would get a break in july and august. >> reporter: and didn't.
the director of cdc said he's reluctant to make predictions. >> i do think fall and within of 2020 and 2021 will be one of the most difficult times we've experienced in american public health. >> reporter: here in california, a record number of people in the hospital. a record number of people in the icu which is why restaurants like this one behind me are no longer allowed to serve anybody inside. nick watt, cnn, santa monica. an internal medicine physician joins me now at california pacific medical center. thank you for being with us and for all that you do. >> thank you for having me. >> i do want to start with the first published results of phase one of the human trials of the moderna vaccine. we know it produced immune responses in all participants.
with no overall safety concerns but more research is needed. the critical question is will this protect people from covid-19? how encouraged do you buy any of this? >> well, rosemary, you're asking the big question here. so these are phase one results. where a small group of people of received the trial vaccine. so in this case it was 45 healthy adults. this showed that the vaccine worked to trigger an im. immune response with mild side effects. but at this stage we still don't know whether the levels of immunity we're seeing from this vaccine would actually protect against the infection. this is a small step. i would say in the right direction. but if we look at history lots of vaccines that look good out of phase one unfortunately don't turn out to be good products so we still have a long road ahead before we have a safe effective vaccine available. >> it's hard not to try to get excited each time we see some sort of positive move here.
but, of course, the safety of this vaccine, if it turns out to be one that's made available will be critical because we know about 1/3 of americans are vowing not to take any covid-19 vaccine that's made available citing safety concerns. how do you convince people when a vaccine is rushed to production because for this to work the majority of any population needs to be vaccinated. doesn't it? >> that's right. when it reaches herd immunity we need a good proportion of the population to be willing to take it. these are extraordinary times. there's so much fear and uncertainty going forward about what the future holds and having a rushed vaccine, i think adds to that fear. i think what it comes down to is really straightforward consistent evidence-based public health messaging which we have not seen at all throughout this pandemic in america but the hope is that when, if and when a
vaccine is available that we will get aligned in terms of at the federal level, from the top down this accurate, concise and consistent public health messaging that will be needed in order for more people to trust this process and be vaccinated. >> the u.s. is averaging 60 new cases a day. florida broke its record with 142 deaths in the past 24 hours. texas reports a new daily record of 10,745 cases. and 37 states currently showing an increase in cases. can this be turned around if most people wear havings or has it gone beyond that? >> yeah. that's a great question. this country is in a very concerning place. as you mentioned we have several states seeing these large increases in numbers every single day. icu beds. i hear from my colleagues
filling up with very sick patients. all the while many people far too many are disregarding science and sound medical advice to wear masks and distance away from others. we're absolutely without a doubt going in the wrong direction. states i fear opened far too early and then haven't followed guidelines to roll back their re-opening plans. i think the one thing that we can do right now is recognize that wearing a mask, you know, paying attention our behavior at all times, distancing away from others, avoiding crowded indoor spaces, doing everything we can to slow the spread will absolutely have an impact on things like returning to work and to school safely in the coming months. it's on all of us to do our part. >> we'll end it there. thank you so much for talking with us. >> thank you so much for having me, rosemary. u.s. supreme court justice ruth baden ginsburg is back in the hospital but doctors don't
seem to be alarmed. the 87-year-old judge was admitted to johns hopkins hospital for treatment of an infection. doctors say she's being given antibiotics and hope her stay lasts only a few days. she's battled cancer and gall bladder condition. president trump is taking aim at china announcing new sanctions on businesses and individuals who helped beijing restrict hong kong's autonomy. that's not all. hong kong will no longer enjoy its special trade status with the u.s.. the u.s. president ended that with a stroke of a pen on tuesday. >> hong kong will now be treated the same as mainland china. no special privileges, no special economic treatment and no export of sensitive technologies. in addition to that as you know, we're placing massive tariffs and have placed very large
tariffs on china. first time that's ever happened to china. >> and cnn's kristie lu stout joins me now from hong kong. good to see you. how is beijing responding to president trump taking aim at china with sanctions and the removing hong kong's special trade status. >> they will impose sanctions on relevant u.s. entities and personnel after president trump did what we were expecting him to do, sign that executive order to end hong kong's special trade status. what impact will this have on hong kong? united states can treat hong kong the same as mainland china for both trade and commerce. this will jeopardyize tens of billions of $worth of trade between hong kong and the united states. this will shake up some 10% of hong kong's exports.
it will cause headaches for over 1300 american companies who operate here from major american law firms and accounting firms and tarnish hong kong's image as an international financial center and in the end it will hurt china. for china hong kong is a valuable glittering conduit between the evident and west for international finance and trade. a number of international companies have their headquarters here as well as chinese companies. to get another picture as a result of this latestove by donald trump, spoke earlier with simon lee. >> if hong kong loses privilege as special economy under the u.s. law, there's no difference between hong kong and other cities in china such as shanghai
and beijing. it's whether they will maintain their trade in hong kong. they may down scale. >> reporter: ending hong kong's special trade status is a self-defeating move for the united states because united states really has been enjoying the favorable business conditions here in hong kong and profiting from it ever since the pact was put in place since 1992. >> many thanks to kristie lu stout joining us from hong kong. president donald trump scored a big political victory in the u.s. state of alabama. a republican senate candidate he supported in tuesday's primary beat his former ally and attorney general jeff sessions. c >> reporter: jeff sessions falling to defeat in alabama. former auburn football coach nerve ran for public office before defeating sessions in the republican runoff for the senate race tonight.
president trump weighed in heavily on this race, endorsing tolliver. he has never forgiven jeff sessions for recusing himself in the russian investigation which he said was the biggest mistake in his presidency. sessions went back to alabama after being dismissed of his job and tried to get his old job back. he's run for the seat four times before usually without opposition. this time had a tough competition and president trump campaigned against him. sessions conceding his race saying this. >> i want to congratulate tommy. he ran a really firm solid race. i was extraordinarily accome ac had. as far as attorney general i did the right thing. any other action to try to
squelch an investigation in that environment would not have worked it would have been a catastrophe. i'm glad it ended after a prolonged time and the president has been cleared. >> shortly after this race was called, the president congratulated tubberville. this was seen as a test of president trump's strength in this race. of course, deep red alabama is trump country. there is no question about this. now going forward, the state now is represented by a democratic senator doug jones. he's the most endangered democratic incumbent senator and now face tommy tuberville in november. still to come, president trump downplays police violence against black americans with some misleading claims. we'll explain. investing today wherever you are -

than black people. take a listen. >> why are african-americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country? >> so are white people. so are white people. what a terrible question to ask. so are white people. more white people, by the way. more white people. >> but a federal study on deaths between 2009 and 2012 found a disproportionate number of people killed by police are black. with a fatality right 2.8 times higher. the study also found black victims are more likely to be unarmed. the u.s. isn't just grappling with the impact and legacy of racism and a deadly pandemic, now american cities are seeing huge spikes in violent crime. families in communities are being torn apart. we have details on the crime wave and how cities are responding. >> reporter: 14 shootings in 24 hours on new york city streets
monday including the killing of a teenager shot in the head. >> we are not going for this. [bleep] so i'm talking to the streets. you know who is killing who. >> reporter: a community outraged while a 1-year-old sitting in his stroller killed in a brooklyn park. more gun violence is being seen. in seattle -- >> we're working very hard to reduce the number of shootings in seattle. >> reporter: chicago, charleston, philadelphia, atlanta. >> i hate to use the word a perfect storm but it's where we are in this country right now. >> reporter: in new york. >> there has to be a price for killing an illegal firearm in new york city. right now the price isn't hard enough. >> reporter: the nypd points to new residism data the police arresting been fully operational because of coronavirus restrictions
meaning cases aren't being prosecuted quickly, grand juries aren't being convened. >> in the absence of courts operating and people are coming through the courts we're not seeing the same level of debriefings that are traditionally part of the kind of police work that we rely ohat crime and often enables prevention. >> reporter: a spokesperson for the brooklyn district attorney's office the borough which saw most of the shootings monday told cnn quote for us the biggest issue is there are no grand juries so we can't indict felony cases. >> more talk. not just for police brutality. it's black on black. >> reporter: in the wake of george floyd's murder in minneapolis, protesters cried out coast to coast for changes in policing. and the defunding of departments. the demands met with swift
reform. on tuesday pennsylvania following in new york's foot steps the governor signing two measures into law which addressed the hiring of officers and increases their training including for implicit bias. >> let me say this very clearly. black lives matter. i'll say it again. black lives matter. but saying it, that's just not enough. we must listen and we must take action. >> reporter: across america the continuous criticism and reform measures said to be weighing on the rank-and-file. >> if you're out on the streets and every time you turn on the television they are saying how much they hate you and how much they don't need you and how unimportant you are to the safety of your citizens it does at that lot for their morale. >> reporter: over a one week period, nypd retirement soared
400%. a captain told cnn every day the pension section sends out a notice who went that day and filed. i want used to be a page maybe two at the most. the other day it was six pages. meanwhile departments are striving to do better. knowing how vital it is to build relationships with the communities they serve. the nypd instituting changes within including assigning a new head to community affairs with the task of re-imagining community policing. >> people started talking about issues over systemic racism and police brutality. these are hard conversations i'll take on. >> reporter: in the end experts say it needs all hands on deck to turn this alarming trend around from police to courts to communities. a u.s. federal judge has denied bail for ghislaine maxwell, the former confidant and alleged co-conspirator of
sex trafficker for jeffrey epstein. the court ruled maxwell will not be released because the risk of her fleeing is too great. she will remain in jail until her trial next year. the judge cited the british socialite's significant financial resources, international ties, and a quote extraordinary capacity to avoid detection. maxwell pleaded not guilty to charges that she helped jeffrey epstein recruit and sexually abuse minors as young as 14. still to come on cnn, a dire message from one of america's top health officials about the months ahead as the u.s. breaks another covid-19 record. and with less than stellar reviews for handling the pandemic, president trump's poll numbers are falling in a key state. we'll explain.

the u.s. is seeing a dramatic surge in coronavirus cases. there were more than 67,000 new cases across the country tuesday. in florida, 48 hospitals have reached their icu capacity. texas reported more than 10,000 new covid-19 cases tuesday. and california's los angeles county had more than 4200 new cases. all this according to data from local health officials. the top u.s. infectious disease expert dr. anthony fauci is again weighing in. he says other countries were more effective at managing the pandemic because unlike the u.s. they shut down almost entirely during the initial outbreak. meantime the head of the u.s. centers for disease control
and prevention is issuing a dire warning. dr. robert redfield said this autumn and winter could be one of the most difficult times for the u.s. as the flu season is expected to further overwhelm health systems. in the uk a similar warning. i spoke to a doctor about his projections for covid-19 and the flu. his team believes coronavirus donald trumps could reach 120,000 by next summer. >> it was based really on looking at the additional factors over the winter that would accelerate the transmission of this virus between people. we have really a perfect storm in some respects in that the virus, obviously, likes colder weather. it lives longer. people become more closed in in their environments and homes and offices and other spaces and less ventilated to keep down --
to keep the temperature up. and the other thing that's important here is that people themselves tend not to go out as much during the winter and are much closer to each other. i'm looking at this with other factors that are coming along as you rightly mentioned, influenza, but also the backlog we have of all those surgical and medical problems that are accumulated in the health service that need attention and also the difficulties that we had to create in some respects to cope with the covid in our hospitals such as the staff and the wards and the various other parts of the hospitals aren't really fit for being able to cope has led to obviously, us being a little bit pessimistic in our view. >> understood. it is, indeed, an incredible concern and perhaps there have been suggestions if there could be a push to get more people
across the fwloglobe to take thu shot that would remove that element. here in the united states only 45% of american adults actually take the flu shot. that may change this time because of covid-19. what is the situation in the uk when it comes to the flu shot? >> well, of course, we don't have covid-19 vaccine yet, which is unfortunate, but it's coming along we all hope. yes, flu is the big issue here. our figures of vaccination i think are fairly similar to those in the united states about 45% to 50%. we got to push hard here to get the flu vaccine to the people who most need it, those with conditions that predispose them to influenza. children. the elderly and of course the health workers because we don't want them to get sick during a critical time when they are coping with this extra resurgence. thanks again to dr. holgate. the director of cdc says
masks are key if schools are to re-open safely in the coming months. the u.s. is debating the best way to do that. one way is doctors believe teachers should have access to same protection as health care workers. >> staff and teachers should be provided medical grade ppe. we should treat them as essential workers and give them all of the safety equipment they need in order to be safe. >> the cdc says face-to-face instruction is the goal for the new school year. many teachers and school administrators are opposed to going back to school before it's safe. >> the trump administration is taking back their restriction on foreign students attending schools in the u.s. some major consumes planned to move all courses online meaning trump administration's policy would have impacted 1 million
foreign students studying here in the united states. >> what do you get when you take a large gathering of young people, loud music and partying, and a very highly contagious virus. it led to new cases that spread across state lines as tom foreman reports. >> reporter: the fourth of july holiday fallout is landing hard in michigan where officials say a single house party in the town of saline has exploded into at least 43 confirmed says cognitive individual. >> it sound like from our investigation that there were some folks at the initial event with some mild illness and that's probably one of the reasons why we've seen it spread so quickly. >> reporter: indeed. authorities say the party goers carried the virus to stores restaurants, other businesses, a canoe rental places camps, connecting with athletic teams and a retirement community
triggering confirmed infections in all those locations, some even went to other states. >> the case count does continue to go up. >> reporter: most of those infections hit people between ages of 15 to 25, raising new concern about that huge lake party on the northern end of the state where health officials say people are also turning up with covid but michigan is far from alone. in state after state the warnings are stepping up from young people who have contracted the virus -- >> take this seriously. it is not a joke. >> reporter: and officials who worry about environments that attract the young, tired of being locked down. parties, bars, concerts. >> there's nothing about that environment that's conducive to slowing the spread of covid-19. >> went to someone's home. few people were there. they were eat, drinking. >> reporter: michele's 21-year-old son went to a gathering of friend. came home. now her whole family is covid positive.
her husband john on a ventilator. >> it's scary he's there all alone fighting for his life. you let your guard down one time. that's all it takes. look you come home and infect the entire house. >> reporter: this is what health officials worried about all along people making decisions to do what they want to do and go where they want to go and that affects hundreds of other people who did not make that choice. tom foreman, cnn, washington. national polls show that if the november u.s. election were held today president donald trump would lose to joe biden. cnn's ed lavandera visited a traditionally conservative city in texas to hear how voters think mr. trump is handling the big issues. >> reporter: the quaint downtown square of mckinnie, texas promises good times. but good times have been smothered by the coronavirus, the pandemic is casting a long
shadow over the 2020 presidential election. >> the whole covid thing is being used as a tool to divide us as a country instead of us coming together. >> reporter: margie and kelly both support president trump and said he's done an honest job of handling the pandemic. >> he's doing the best key. there's so much mixed information out there and trying to decipher what's fact and what's fiction and where it's coming from. i wouldn't don't be in his position. >> i don't always like his decisions, his intentions are good. he gathers the information and makes the decision for our country and not for an ulterior motive of personal goal. >> reporter: this is a conservative big city suburbs where political analysts say trump is vulnerable and the kind of area joe biden is now targeting with a new television ad. >> this virus is tough. but texas is tougher. >> reporter: recent polls show
trump and biden locked in a tight race in texas. the idea of a democrat winning texas is still viewed with skepticism. but there's a strong wave of anger towards president trump among some texas voters. how do you think president trump has handled this pandemic? >> failure. total failure. his actions and lack of actions has exacerbated the effects of the pandemic on all americans. >> he's not taken responsibility for anything that he does. he always blames someone else. >> he says nobody has died. it's going to go away by itself. those are things which really bothers me as a citizen that he really takes it very lightly. >> reporter: for some trump supporters the president is a victim of unfair criticism, politically motivated in an election year.
>> he had to hit the ground running in all of the unknowns. and i feel like he's been second guessed for the majority of it. it's easy now to become an arm chair quarterback. and to criticize what he's done. >> reporter: ed lavandera, cnn, texas. still to come the uk makes a big decision on a tech giant delighting washington and angering beijing. wheel explain. businesses are starting to bounce back.
