press briefing. he stopped after the backlash to comments like these. >> supposingly hit the body with a tremendous -- whether it's ultraviolet or very powerful light and i think you said that hasn't been tested. then i see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute and is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? >> now aides are signaling the briefings will not focus exclusively on coronavirus. that will undoubtedly give the president a chance to freelance as he has done in the last few weeks. trump has abruptly reversed themselves on masks. he calls them patriotic. he put out this photo of himself wearing a mask. that's a sight he spent months
trying to avoid. >> i want people to have a certain freedom and i don't believe in that, no. i don't agree with the statement if everybody wears a mask everything will disappear. >> i didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it. >> wearing a facemask as a great president, dictatordictators, k queens, i don't know, somehow i don't see it for myself. >> reporter: even with the sudden mask endorsement he's not changing behind closed doors. in a fund-raiser you can see the president with no mask as he greeted people. kaitlyn collins is at the white house. >> reporter: yeah, christine and lauren, today the president said he's reviving the coronavirus task force briefings that have all but disappeared as we have seen infections surge. they've only held two in the past several months.
president trump has not been at either of those. he talked about the ratings he got. he says he thinks he'll hold them around the same time, 5:00 p.m. because he thinks, quote, it's a good slot. the question is what is the president going to say. it's the positive test rate. one of the questions he could be asked about is the photo of him wearing a mask saying it's patriotic to do so and encouraging the followers to do the same. what's notable to so many people is the date on the tweet, july 20th. april 3rd, that's when the cdc came out with the guidance recommending people wear a mask which the president stressed it was voluntary. he said he wasn't going to do the same. the question was what was behind that change of heart from the president? we're told it's not the warnings but the poll numbers.
he had seen the numbers not only in these public polls but internal polling that showed that people did not think he was responding to coronavirus well and that he needed to change his tactics. 50 states looking for national leadership as they struggle for leadership on their own. florida is having families stuck in limbo. florida's home to five of the ten largest school districts governed by an ally of president trump. >> if you had been infected, then you -- >> governor ron desantis heckled there. he's not the only governor downplaying the risk of sending kids to school making it seem
like this is simple when it is not. here is missouri's governor. >> these kids have got to get back to school. they're at the lowest risk possible. if they do get covid-19 which they will, they will when they go to school, they're not going to the hospital. they are not going to have to sit in doctor's offices, they're going to go home and get over it. >> more than 9500 people in florida are hospitalized with covid-19. 53 icus have reached capacity. one mom lost two children in the last two weeks. >> i can't say where they got this virus because they were basically home bound. if you don't have to go out, stay home. >> hospitalizations nationwide spiking right back to where they were in april. these are not just cases which include asymptomatic people, these are gravely ill patients. in idalgo county, texas, one of
the dark red counties at the tip, people are being ordered to shelter at home. hospitals are really maximized. there's a lot of concern about young people going out partying. the governor has a blunt message for them. >> i'm telling you in plain new york speak as a born and bred new yorker, it's stupid what you're doing. it is stupid. don't be stupid. what you're doing is stupid and reckless for themselves and for other people. >> if americans start making better choices, here's what eventually awaits them. thousands of movie theaters reopening after nearly six months. for now, in the u.s. more rules. disney world tightening restrictions ordering visitors to stay in one place while eating and drinking. chicago tightening restrictions on bars and gyms. in california friday night lights will remain dark for high

pain at the injection site and muscle pain. the study says over the counter pain medication helped with those. the researchers say the next step is to study this vaccine in older adults and other people with underlying health conditions. they're at a higher risk for covid. christine and laura? >> jaclyn, thank you for that. an attorney found dead on monday is the suspect in a deadly shooting at the home of a judge. a self-described antifeminist lawyer who defends men's rights once argued before judge esther salas. he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. family and friends say daniel was an avid sportsman who aspired to be an attorney like his parents. the judge's husband is in stable condition after surgery

the british prime minister has said he does want to remain sort of engaged with china going forward. china will be a big player going forward. he wants brittain's relationship with china to be on even footing. they called chinese treatment of uighurs egregious. that's going to be a pressure point from secretary pompeo to get brittain to perhapsak a stronger position against china, but at the same time on the prime minister's side, he's going to listen. why? he wants a free trade agreement for the end of the year. that's becoming important because of brexit, a trade deal that needs to be concluded by the end of the year. doesn't look like it's in sight. that makes the one with the united states that much more important. nic robertson, thanks. for the first time in the 500 year history london's

enforce this. >> think of the ones bearing the brunt of it. people who have risked their lives to go out and work in a grocery store or a restaurant to serve others and the whole point of this was that wearing a face covering isn't about protecting you, it's about protecting others. it seems this has been so polarized. wearing masks on flight, air travel is declining again. the tsa said it screened nearly 4.7 million passengers last week. down 4% from the previous week and 75% from this time last year. the tsa had its two busiest days since the pandemic hit during the july 4th weekend. president trump is preparing to send in more federal agents to cities run by democratic mayors to crack down on what he says is increased crime and violence. law enforcement officials tell cnn the department of homeland security will send more than 150

referendum as perhaps the first time this was attempted in a western democracy. it is critical, it seems, of the u.k.'s intelligence services saying that they have, quote -- sorry, the quote is treated the russian democratic interference as, quote, a hot potato something in which the internal security service of mi 5 and mi 6 and the electronic version gchq have been reluctant to grasp. it says the united kingdom will need new laws to grasp and tackle the entirety of this threat. it is quite clear there is a rush to enable russian money to come into london in the past decade or so. some of that might have been a compromise to the u.k. this report has become more of a story because of the lengths taken to come to the public attention. now we're seeing it. it doesn't answer the key
question but it does say russia's influence is the new normal and there are new laws required here so that brittain security forces can deal with it. >> america facing the same reality. thanks for breaking down those details for us. a former fox news host is accused of rape. jennif jennifer eckhart said ed henry forced or pressured her to have sex three times. the decision to speak out was not easy but she refuses to let fear of retaliation intimidate her. >> he was fired on july 1st after fox said it received a complaint of sexual harassment from years ago. an attorney for henry said his relationship was consensual. shaun hannity, tucker carlson has been accused of harassing another. security at next month's republican convention is in
