3:00 am
>> i feel cautious lie optimistic we'll have a vaccine by the end of this came calendar year. it's not going to be turning the switch off and turning a switch on. it's going to be gradual. >> at least 40,000 covid infections have been reported on college campuses in every state. >> college students who knew this had coronavirus threw a party anyway and got busted. >> i was college student once, i get it. but, really? >> large fires are burning 4.5 million acres. >> across california inthe personos, five of the largest fires ever record in the state
3:01 am
are burning now. >> if you are notified by emergency officials to evacuate, please do so immediately. you may not gate second chance. >> announcer: this is "new day" weekend with victor blackwell and christi paul. live look at the city of new york and you see those two beams the the tribute of light this morning after 9/11. good morning to you. we're starting with the dangerous and destructive wildfires that are burning across the western part of this country. >> more than 100 large fires are burning across 12 states right now and around 28,000 first responders and support personnel are battling those in the west. fires in california alone have burned more than 3.1 million acres. that's an area twice the state of delaware and we know at least
3:02 am
26 people have died in these fires since last month. sadly officials are preparing for the possibility of more. >> not just the flames that are are creating the threat the entire west coast is under air quality alerts and now there's warning for medical professionals that the smoke can make people more susceptible to covid-19 and other sicknesses. let's go to oregon. camila, 400,000 people in that state have been told evacuate. tell us what you're seeing andrew andrews tell us about the evacuations. >> reporter: i do want to show you the smoke we're talking about the worst in the country according to the governor here. if i turnaround as much as i can to show you that smoke is difficult to see when you're maybe five, ten feet away from places so it not only makes it difficult for us but for the firefighters who are out here
3:03 am
who sometimes can't even see that fire line. unfortunately, it's making their jobs a lot harder and there is a lot of work to do because us a guys mentioned these fires are massive and they are so out of control. we're at 0% containment. there are reports of about a dozen missing people. so that's a concern for the governor that there are people who they believe could be missing and then dealing with the number of people who have been evacuated. we're talking about more than half a million people who are under evacuation orders or evacuation zones. that's more than 10% of the population of this state, trying to find a place to go. i spoke to one man who essentially rented a u-haul and said he wanted to stay in his car and with his u-haul the entime to your. other people are going to shelters but the there is that concern of covid-19, and the dangers of health and dealing with the fires and then there are, of course, those who are
3:04 am
choosing to go friend and family homes. that's the best option for so many people here but, of course, not everybody has that option. there is a bit of good news and that is that the weather is improving. the forecast in terms of the wind looks a lot better today and moving into this weekend as it did the last week. so firefighters for the first time this whole week are saying they are likely going to start making progress. remember, we're at 0% containment. so progress is essentially just the beginning of this fire fight. it's here for the long run. they say the smoke is here to stay as well. firefighters are saying we could get pockets of clean air but for the most part they are expecting the smoke to stay in this area and so it is going to be a long difficult fight for the firefighters and a lot of days of anxiety for the many, many people who are having to evacuate their homes and who are seeing those flames getting closer and closer to their
3:05 am
homes. now ash and debris is all that's left for a lot of these homeowners in two towns in particular in oregon. i want to talk to the city manager of talent, oregon. thank you so much for getting up early and talking to us because as i understand it the governor there in oregon kate brown said this. said this could be the greatest loss of human lives and property due to wildfire in our state's history. we're so sorry, first of all, for what you're all going through. please help us understand what's happening there right now. >> yes. well the fire that tore through the cities you just mentioned on tuesday was devastating. the city of talent has lost anywhere between 500 and 600 structures. we're estimating many of those residences we lost huge portion of our major commercialer and
3:06 am
light industrial core of the city. people are displaced. there are a few places for people to go. most of the state in the western half is burning, so truly tragic and almost unfathomable day for people in the city of talent. >> the director of the oregon office of emergency management says that they are preparing for a mass fatality incident. we know about the people potentially unaccounted for in talent. >> well, we are only hearing now of about 50 or so names of people who are considered unaccounted for but we're still very, very early days. it's going to be a very difficult search process. the areas that were impacted we're not talking about half burned buildings or smoldering ruins. we're talking about other devastation with simply twisted
3:07 am
metal and piles of ash. once we have a better sense of people who we believe are missing, we will have to enter into a pretty extensive rescue or not rescue but search phase to go back to the places where he we think they may have been and see what we can find. >> how long it will be before you think you can get into those areas. i know oregonian was reporting you're starting to get calls from people who are saying i can't contact my family member, how do i know they are safe, how long before you think you can get into that area to find out what's happening? >> well, the areas accessible, if we had the equipment, the folks, the dogs that we'll need, but i think it's going to be a number of days as that list continues to rise and fall as we find that more people are unaccounted for and when other
3:08 am
people can be located and it's because the evacuation happened so quickly and people are really scattered in every direction throughout southern oregon and throughout the state. it will be a while before we're able to have some certainty about who is missing, but we're very hopeful that the numbers won't be as high as some people are saying. our law enforcement crews work tirelessly throughout the day and night to get people out so we're very hopeful we won't see the kind of fatalities that some people are suspecting. >> i know it's the middle of the night there, 3:00 a.m. thank you so much for being with us. our best to you and everyone there as you battle these historic fires. stay close and make sure that if you're available check in and give us an update when you have time. >> thank you so much. >> thank you.
3:09 am
so this influential model cited by the white house predict americans killed by coronavirus will likely double over the next three and a half months. it says that the worst case scenario here is that the u.s. could reach 600,000 deaths by january. >> cnn's polo sandoval is following the latest from new york. we know dr. fauci sas some pretty sobering projections himself but he says he's optimistic. does he say why? >> reporter: this message conflicts with the commander-in-chief. donald trump took to twitter telling the nation that it's time to get back to work, if you haven't done so already. when you hear from dr. fauci perhaps we should consider possibly hunkering down this fall. the big concern with the flu season is that americans could be in for a double whammy. you got the flu and, of course, that lingering coronavirus as
3:10 am
well. a cautiously optimistic tone coming from the nation's top infectious disease expert. on friday dr. fauci said we may see a vaccine by the end of the year but might take several months to get the country vaccinated and protected against the virus. >> it will take months to get enough people vaccinated to have an umbrella of immunity over the community so that you don't have to worry about easy transmission and that's what i mean. it's not going to be an overnight event where you have a vaccine and then all of a sudden everything is okay. >> reporter: fauci expressed confidence that the vaccine approval process is being done correctly and without political pressure. though recent polling indicates 62% of americans worry the food and drug administration will rush it ahead of the upcoming elections. chief adviser to the government's covid vaccine program said he would take it once proven safe and effective.
3:11 am
>> i would turn the question the other way around. what's my ethical reason to withhold a vaccine i could have developed faster from being developed faster. >> reporter: a vaccine can't come soon enough as re-opening schools for in person learning is a poichbt contention despite opposition by some students school district officials in des moines, iowa are defying the over's order to resume in person classes for at least 50% of their instructions. covid infections have been reported on college campuses in every state. young adults holding social gatherings could be among several factors. cnn medical analyst recommending people limit risk. >> just because things are open done mean we now need to do it all. if we can go restaurants maybe we should not go to bars and restaurants and movie theaters and go back to work and cool. we should look at what are the
3:12 am
most essential activities do that and still follow every precaution when it comes to washing our hand, wearing a mask and following social distancing guidelines. >> reporter: the coordinator of the coronavirus white house task force says now is the time to get tested if you think you let your guard down over the labor day weekend. one such example of people letting their guard down in ohio last weekend at miami university where six students were cited for violating city ordinance on mass gatherings they held a house party, even though one of them knew they had tested positive for the coronavirus just a week before. we've seen police body camera video. miami university declining to comment. they did say any students who do violate any quarantine protocols, they do face disciplinary action. >> just doesn't make sense to have those parties.
3:13 am
we go to the white house now. rebecca help us reconcile if you can what you're hearing from the white house regarding the president's message versus dr. fauci's message. >> reporter: good morning. once again we are hearing mixed messages from dr. anthony fauci the nation's top infectious disease expert and from president trump. trump saying this week that he believes we're turning a corner when it comes to the coronavirus in the united states. meantime dr. anthony fauci with a much more sobering assessment of where the country is headed saying it could be more than a year before thing are back to normal in the united states even if a vaccine is developed and approved by the end of this calendar year. dr. anthony fauci sat down last night with our wolf blitzer who asked him why the mixed messages from you and the president. here's what fauci had to say. >> you know, i don't want to answer me or the president. i say look at the data.
3:14 am
the data speaks for themselves. you don't have to listen to any individual and the data tells us that we're still getting up to 40,000 new infections a day and 1,000 deaths. that's what you look at. look at the science, the evidence and the data and you can make a pretty he easy conclusion. >> reporter: an easy conclusion, of course, unless you're the president of the united states who as i mentioned is still saying we're on the upswing, covid is going to be a thing of the past. >> conflicts with the science. let me ask you about the trip out west the president is taking this weekend. we just talked about the wildfires, we're hearing from him but that really isn't the focus of the trip. tell us about it. >> reporter: that's right. we actually haven't heard much from the president at all about these wildfires for the past few weeks until last night. he tweeted that his thoughts are with the firefighters who are fighting these blazes.
3:15 am
but just a month ago he was criticizing california for their management of forest, essentially blaming the state for what is happening not, of course, looking to climate change and other factors that experts believe are contributing to these very unprecedented disastrous fires. what we do expect to hear from the president in nevada later more of his campaign events on the road flouting local covid gathering guidelines as it relates to large crowds. he'll be in reno and las vegas bust it will be very difficult for him to avoid the subject of the wildfires in california and oregon and out west because the air quality particularly in reno is very bad. they've actually told local officials not to do outdoor events but the president, of course, moving ahead as he does doing things his own way. rebeck o so in this polariz

ballot. >> north carolina is an important battleground state. president trump carried that state by nearly 4% in 2016 and he wants to keep it that way. jeff zeleny talked to some voters there about what they are planning to do. >> i want to vote for somebody other than donald trump but i don't want to vote for biden. it's hard. >> reporter: middle east jamie a hairdresser and undecided voter. she grew up in a republican family and likes president trump's economic record but not much else. . >> if he could just not talk. you know. the stuff he says is just like embarrassing. >> reporter: if he could just not talk. so far she's not sold on joe biden. >> i think he's been in office so long and really hasn't done a whole lot. >> reporter: she said she's never voted but will this year inspired by the pandemic that left her unemployed for more than two months. she's one of 1.3 new voters in

north carolina since 2016 when trump narrowly won the state by 173,000 votes. now it's a battleground. he's visited three times in the last three weeks. voting here is already under way. a sign that coronavirus is influencing the election including how people cast their ballots. >> very important for everybody to go out this time, because there's a lot of sick. >> reporter: a professor received his absentee ballot in the mail this week. he dismisses any talk of fraud saying trump is trying to intimidate voters. yet the president's supporters are echoing the legitimacy of the election. >> the a mail in ballot i wouldn't trust it. >> reporter: trump supporters are unwavering. sara who leads a women's regroup believes in trump now more than for you years ago because of jieshl appointments.
3:23 am
>> four years ago president trump wasn't my first, second or third choice. >> reporter: the record doesn't sit well with this bar owner who believes the president's leadership on coronavirus has been appalling. >> he had the opportunity to grab this bull by the horns and said you let us run all over. >> reporter: his business is still closed. he blames trump not the democratic governor. he planted this sign outside his door. there's little question trump supporters here are fired up but also signs he's awakening the other side. his presidency motivated angela to being politically active for the first time and work against him. >> i became much more informed voter. that's why i got this blue wave tattoo. this is to remind me never to assume someone else will do all the hard work. >> reporter: absentee balloting is under way. early voting starts next month. there's 17 days of in person

early voting across north carolina. so not only is coronavirus affecting how you vote it's also affecting in some cases who you're voting for. there's no question north carolina and its 15 electoral votes are squarely in the sites of the trump campaign. not only did donald trump visit three times, but his children made separate visits to the state this week. joe biden is coming soon. jeff zeleny, charlotte, north carolina. >> so, a new report out says eating out is more dangerous than other activities going on amidst this pandemic. we'll tell you what we know. stay close. ♪ ♪ ♪ take the good, with the bad ♪ live the life you want to have♪ ♪ send it off, with a bang ♪ ♪ whistling

but remember that eating in these restaurants is still a pretty risky activity. >> new study from the cdc found adults infected with covid-19 were twice as likely to report eating at a restaurant in the two weeks before they started to feel ill. >> reporter: a new study from the cdc suggests that adults with covid-19 are about twice as likely to say they dined at a restaurant in the two weeks prior to feeling sick. researchers looked at more than 300 adults who were tested for covid-19. there were no major differences between those who tested positive versus negative when it came to other activities, such as shopping or going to a salon. but overall the cdc has guidance on this when it comes to restaurants. you'll see a list here of what the cdc lists as low risk versus high-risk and cdc says, you know, low risk ways to enjoy your favorite restaurant are to

3:31 am
all of the social distancing, we're wearing these masks, we're so vigilant because the virus is transmitting amongst us in ways he we can't see. if we get to a point where enough of us have acquired immunity meaning there was a vaccine or people got sick or therefore immune the virus won't be pain between us like it is now and we can go back to what we call normal. the fact is we're not nearly there. and what i worry about is a lot of people are trying to go back to normal right now and that's a really dangerous thing. the fall starts off, the unofficial beginning of the new year, start of school, start of colleagues and people want to pretend covid is over. it's not. we have to keep doing these things and be tucked in for the long haul until we have a safe and effective vaccine that enough people have taken that it's safe to go back to normal. >> jim acosta from cnn talked to
3:32 am
some folks who were at president trump's rally earlier this week, and there was one conversation in particular that truck me. i want to listen to what jacob had to say when he was asked why aren't you wearing a mask. >> this is the worst pandemic in the world, a little mask, a little mask, this protects you from the world's deadliest and scariest virus that ruined our economy and we have to wear this. >> health experts say it will protect you. >> w.h.o. says it doesn't spread person to person or animals but hey we have to pay to it china because he has all our jobs. >> he pivoted to political at the end but he said something about the w.h.o. and that they had initially said it didn't spread person to person. how do you manage getting through to people when -- not to
3:33 am
his credit per se but to his point there have been a lot of confusing fluid conversations and former coming out of a virus that in the beginning seems to not be understood. so we've had this national evolution of new information and guidance coming out. how do we fully educate people so they really know what to do? >> well, the hard part is that this is how science works. we take data and interpret what we found and adjust the way we under the world. that's the hard part. people think science is a body knowledge. like there was a prepacked book about covid-19 that we had to pull off the shelf somewhere and read and then we would know what we needed to do. that's not how it works. covid-19, the novel virus that creates it hasn't been in humans for a year.
3:34 am
we're just learning. initially we thought it was transmitted person to person without aerosol spread. we learned it was spread via aerosol. initially we thought it was spread by people who only have symptoms. then we learned it is spread by people without symptoms. there's a big question in our country about understanding of science and belief in science and that the scientific process has entered it. it teaches us new things as we go along and we have to adjust what we do to protect ourselves. this person is hiepg a president who has been politicizing this pandemic for a longtime. when the president tries to tell you despite knowing this virus is not serious, it will go away in the spring and summer, that, you know, it's just like the flu, it's not something we should be shutting down our economy over, of course a lot of people who follow him are going to start repeating those same
3:35 am
comments and it's costing live. and we have a responsibility, i think, to meet that space with empathy but also with the facts and realization that 185,000 now, 190,000 people didn't have to die in part because it was because of this dismissiveness they had. >> pretty of proif i l good. let's talk about football. tens of college students have tested positive for covid-19, parties that are thrown, disciplinary actions of students who ignore masking or social distancing rules and then i wake up and in my email i e13 of the 14 sec schools are allowing spectators into stadiums to watch these games. i think we have the percentages that we can put up on the screen. seems ill-advised or am i over
