tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  May 1, 2021 3:00am-4:00am PDT

3:00 am
♪ and welcome to "new day." i'm boris sanchez. >> and i'm christi paul. boris, good to see you. let's talk about 100 million americans vaccinated. signs of normcy, feels like it's slowly turning the country, doesn't it? >> yeah, the india is growing more desperate as thousands of people are dying daily and vaccines and other resources are scarce. now the biden administration is moving to restrict travel restrictions to india. warning signs, more allies of president trump following that raid of rudy giuliani's home and office. and christi, get that mint julep ready. the kentucky derby is back. while we may see history on the
3:01 am
track we'll see something we haven't seen lately. thousands of fans in the stands. >> it is saturday, may 1st. it is may. how did that happen, boris? >> time is moving way too quickly. we are grateful that you are with us. and we start today with some positive news and more and more americans get vaccinated, health experts are sounding optimistic. dr. ashish jha saying on friday, quote, the worst is behind us. and there are reasons to be hopeful. more than 100 million americans new fully vaccinated against covid-19, while cases fall and deaths decline the country is headed to normalcy. >> disneyland reopened yesterday. indoor lining limits are going
3:02 am
to soon increase in new york. and delta air lines, the last airline carrier to keep middle seats blocked are going to start selling them today. we know 21 states are seeing a decline in cases this past week. >> let's start this morning with cnn's polo sandoval in new york. polo, we're seeing the lowest averages in terms of deaths in the united states in nearly a year. >> yeah, boris and christi, look, just thursday alone, we lost 1300 people to the coronavirus. nonetheless, it's important to know we are taking a real great step when you hear from doctors that we are still see something of the lowest death rates right now. an 80% decrease since january. you'll hear from an expert in just a few moments, confident feeling that some parts of the country are already out of the woods. >> reporter: throughout much of the country americans are seeing signs as the light at the end of the tunnel draws near. just over four months since
3:03 am
covid-19 vaccines sbeent arms, the u.s. faced a milestone with 100 million americans fully vaccinated. that maybe less than a third of the population, but enough for more normalcy. disneyland is opened for the first time in a year to 25% capacity and to california residents only. the color-clad crowd are back for kentucky derby though masks are a must. and for new york city, indoor dining is increasing to 75% next friday. >> our health care team worked to determine what were the dates that we could do it the right way. they believe in july 1st. i believe in july 1st. we're on track to get 5 million new yorkers vaccinated by july 1st. it's the right moment to make this movement. >> reporter: across the country, the state of oregon moving forward to fully open the economy by end of june with the average number of new covid
3:04 am
cases at its highest point until january, the governor says the state of emergency will stay in place until then. overall, it seems the worst of the pandemic may behind us in the u.s. says dr. ashish jha. >> certainly, we're heading in the right direction. vaccinations have to continue. i think we will have a really big summer. >> reporter: the travel industry already bracing for a massive surge. and summer travel for vaccinated americans to regain confidence for the roads, tsa going an increase in recent weeks. >> we expect passenger volume to rise significantly throughout the summer. memorial day being the official kickoff of travel season. >> reporter: however, it has remained a challenge while the average number of covid-19 deaths are at their lowest in months, the average daily vaccinations dropped to 2.6 of million this week. starting this tuesday, the united states will be restricting travel by indian airlineses, or at least for
3:05 am
travelers coming from india here. we do know that the policy will not be applying to u.s. citizens, permanent residents or others potentially exempted here, boris and christi. like all travelers they will still have to have a negative covid test before arriving in the united states. and the administration announced they had will continue to send aid to hard-hit india. back to you, guys. >> polo sandoval, thank you so much. let's talk to an emergency room physician. good morning to you. in india, i understand you have family and friends there. do you know how they're doing? >> so far, i've been lucky, my family and friends seem to be okay. i have a lot of colleagues immersed in this surge, it's almost beckoning back to where we were in march and april, except it seems far worse than the way their system was set up
3:06 am
and the limited supplies they had to begin with and how that's being stretched so thin right now. >> do you think that the u.s. and other countries can even help them at this point? >> i do. i think the focus of where we help is important, though. there's been a lot of talk of getting vaccines to india but you can't really vaccinate out of a surge. same thing we saw in michigan while they were surging we can't send vaccines there. thing they need are supplies like oxygen, ppe, simple medications we know are in desperate need, steroids, only geezics, pain medications, apathetics these are things we know we can surge and there's information on how to take care of covid at home. there's no hospital beds, let's give people the tools to take care of their family and loved one in their homes the best they can do. these are things we need,
3:07 am
information and simple supplies to get to india. >> so, help us understand what you're hearing, first of all from what's happening in india. and talk to us about how that affects the rest of the world, you know, what is the global impact of what is happening right now? >> what i'm hearing from people is that this surge is unlike anything that anyone has really ever seen. the number of people who are showing up to hospitals and the lack of any kind of a hospital system to be able to take care of those people. india spends a very small percentage of their overall budget on health care. and there's just not enough space to take care of people showing up. and people are waiting outside. to a system that has its own problems everybody shows up to a hospital to be taken care of. india doesn't have that same system. if you can't pay, there's a good chance you're not able to access health care. that's very different than what we have here. as far as impact, we can't be safe from this pandemic until everybody is safe. having seen this spread and
3:08 am
really replicate this virus in india means there's more likelihood of variants showing up, more likelihood of variants to our vaccines showing up. it's a problem, unless we fight this on a global basis we can never get ahead of it. >> i want to show you other pictures we're getting in from the uk. this experiment al raise that happened. 6,000 clubbers are hitting the dance floor. this is a key test of whether live events can happen in a full capacity. they have plans to do that in the uk by may 21st. let's talk about the scientific data that may come out of it do you think it's worth it in the name of science, what you're looking at, these pictures here? >> i don't know if i can make that determination if it's worth for science. you know, we can't have mass gatherings without a lot of restrictions in place, in terms how many people are vaccinated
3:09 am
in that gathering. what level, you talked about how the kentucky derby is running, they're all wearing masks, they're outdoors, that's good, but it's the other things going around that's also a problem. there's lots of derby parties. indoors. and this is what can spread and cause huge outbreaks in communities. that's a problem. >> number this morning sounds promising, yes. 100 million fully vaccinated that's about 30.5% if i believe to be correct of the u.s. population. but we need 75%, 85% to hit herd immunity. do you think we can hit it? and what happens if we don't? >> this is a really amazing question. and i don't know. i don't know we can hit it. but we have to try as hard as possible to get there. with 100 million vaccinations, that's a huge accomplishment, a lot of us are saying we've gotten kind of the easy part of this so far. none of it has been easy. what we've gotten is those who
3:10 am
would have climbed ev ed everes get that vavaccine, we've got other groups people, we have people who would still climb everest but have access issues. we have a group that's hesitant. and for that group, we need to make it as easy as possible and expand education. and then we have a group that says they're not going to get the vaccine. we have to do outreach, community leaders and align ourselves and find out what it is to help convince people this is the right way to go. as far as if we don't get there, we don't know what exactly that number is, and many people say we'll never get there. i want to be a little more hopeful. if we don't, we will see pockets of outbreaks, as more people get vaccinated that means person one might get it person two might get it and then it stops at person three. the more people to get
3:11 am
vaccinated, the less likely we have massive outbreaks. can we get there? i think we can. we need to do education, community outreach and align with leaders to make that happen. >> doctor, it is so good to have you with us. thank you for taking time with us today. >> thank you very much. president biden is returning to a familiar place. he's trying to sell his $4 trillion quick plan. the question is, will lawmakers get on board? plus, a developing story we're following out of india. a fire tearing through a hospital covid ward, killing more than a dozen people. what we're learning about that, ahead. ♪ [truck horn blares] (vo) the subaru forester. dog tested. dog approved.

3:16 am
got personal. the president who for decades commuted by train to work in washington, stopping by an amtrak station. he spent almost as much time retelling old stories about falling asleep on the train as he did trying to make the case that only the government can make the kind of investments that will help the economy recover. cnn's jasmine wright joins us live from the white house. where does the economic plan stand now? >> reporter: well, we saw president biden out for the second day making the case directly to the american people of why they need this moultrie trillion jobs and infrastructure package in part, because it will keep america competitive. at a global scale. which is eyed directly on china. take a listen to him yesterday. >> we need to remember, we're in competition with the rest of the world. people come here and set up businesses, people stay here,
3:17 am
people grow. because of the ability to access, access transportation. access all of the infrastructure. it's what allows to us compete. and with the rest of the world, to win the 21st century, we've got to move. >> reporter: so that is the president's message out on the road. but back here in d.c., officials know that moderate democrats have been asking about whether or not he's going to be targeted, if this is too big. and republicans don't seem to warm to it at all, specifically because of everything else that's not traditional infrastructure. still, president biden says he wants to find bipartisan support. he's invited republican senator shelley moore capito to the white house to discuss her council-led proposal. and saying if the republicans don't meet him halfway it's a no-go. and christie and boris, that came in $1.5 trillion to
3:18 am
president biden's $2.7 trillion proposal. that ain't halfway. the white house is not sure where the compromise is yet. but while they look for it in d.c., president biden will take his message on the road. he'll be in virginia with the first lady on monday and the vice president in wisconsin. christi, boris. >> a busy week for the president and vice president. jas written wright, thank you for the update. let's deep digger with cnn commentator errol louis, he's also an anchor for spectrum news. errol, we appreciate you getting up early for us. let's get right to biden's agenda, he's hitting the road selling the infrastructure and jobs plan. i read that you thought he did a good job wednesday night, selling it to the american people during his speech during a joint session of congress. how would you grade his efforts, though, to sell this to
3:19 am
congress, not just democrats but key democrats to get this passed like joe manchin? >> i think that is going to be, in some ways, the easiest part of this very difficult political sales job that the president is embarking on. it's one thing to convince republicans salivating over the prospect of retaking control of the senate and house here which they have a fairly good chance of doing. it's another thing to sort of talk to his fellow democrats about staying in power. about doing the things that they've all promised. about delivering hundreds of billions of dollars to areas that really need it and to possibly maybe pull off a win and maintain control of the house and senate after next year's midterm elections. it's not going to be that hard to convince. i think senator manchin and others seen as moderates or waivers, this is going to be good for them. both politically and good for the country as a whole. the question is going to be
3:20 am
whether or not they waste too much time trying to get republican votes that are simply not there. you know, joe biden is kind of going through the motions. it's what he promised on the campaign trail but there's absolutely no reason to think he's going to get any serious cooperation from the republican senate. >> yeah. and notably, in order for biden to keep the congress on his side, he's going to have to win independent voters and moderate republicans. i want to point to this new cnn poll that's out. 7 in 10, 70% of republicans incorrectly, with zero legitimate evidence, believe that biden did not win the presidency. you wrote that biden did well in speaking to working class voters and trump voters wednesday night. how does he actually cut across, through that 70%? through that nonsense that sort of cult of trump? >> well, look, what the biden team is going to try and do, and they've got trillions of dollars
3:21 am
to do it with if they're successful is try and go around a lot of the political class and go directly to the voters, taking a page out of the book of ronald reagan who used to do this regularly which is go around the politicians and go directly to the voters. in the end, no matter how much right wing media people might be consuming about who won or lost the election or what was good or bad about donald trump or the january 6th insurrection, a new road, new bridge, new jobs, investment in families. that really does hit home. and joe biden is betting on the idea that people, no matter what it is that they've consumed on conservative media are going to be interested. are going to be intrigued. at least not going to hate the biden administration or the democratic party for building a new school in their community. or for building a new road or fixing the bridges. and it's not at all assured that this is going to work out for biden. but that's the political
3:22 am
calculation. it's a pretty reasonable under under the circumstances because you can't get into the -- if joe biden gets on to the terrain of trying to argue that his election was legitimate, he will have already lost politically. i don't think he's going to fall for that. >> yeah, notably, a lot of republicans also feel that arguing about 2020 is a losing effort. let's move on and talk about another item on the biden agenda. police reform. meetings this week between lawmakers on the george floyd act didn't really produce much indication that something is going to pass before may 25th, the anniversary of floyd's death. in your eyes is the white house doing enough to push this across the finish line. and what could happen in bigger picture to the biden agenda, if this fails? >> well, the larger agenda is not going to be capsized. if this bill fails to pass, unfortunately. it's really important that some of these issues make their way into the conversation. the reality, though, boris is that law enforcement, when you
3:23 am
get down to the granular level where reform really takes place, it's a local matter. it's not something the federal government can have a lot to do to sort of force things forward. but the administration is already signaled by initiating investigations in minneapolis, in louisville, and other places, looking into the department of going back to what had worked under the obama administration which are these consent decrees. they'll show what they're doing while they can. in the end, boris, this is about satisfying the democratic base, a large part of what is concern with what has happened with police reform or not happened. they can signal for it to happen, they can push for the bill as hard as they can. even if the bill doesn't pass there are things that can be done by executive action and at sfieing the democratic base i think will take care of the political need that lay at the base of all of these efforts. >> well, yeah, it's not just about satisfying the base.
3:24 am
it's also about getting something done and a change that sticks. errol louis, appreciate the time, sir. >> thank you. an icu doctor in india said the horrifying scenes she's seeing in her hospital and her community right now are, quote, nothing short of an apocalypse. you need to see it yourself. we have got it on the other side of the break. the pictures, the voices, the stories. stay close. l care and 20% off your treatment plan. new patients, take the first step with a complete exam and x-rays that are free without insurance. because our nationwide network of over 1,500 doctors at 900 locations all have one goal — to make you smile, today. start now. call 1-800-aspendental or book online at if you wanna be a winner then get a turkey footlong from subway®. that's oven roasted turkey. piled high with crisp veggies. on freshly baked bread! so, let's get out there and get those footlongs.

my cholesterol is borderline. so i take garlique to help maintain healthy cholesterol safely and naturally. and it's odor free. i'm taking charge of my cholesterol with garlique. i know it's devastating to see, but it is the reality this morning in india. 18 people are dead after a fire ripped through a hospital's covid-19 icu ward. according to officials, 16 of the people who died were patients. two were staff. roughly 60 patients were there when the fire started. the survivors have been moved to other hospitals.
3:29 am
officials say a short circuit may have started that fire. there is an investigation going on. >> the fire just the latest in a series of awful scenes across independent yas has covid-19 continues to ravage the country. yesterday, india reported over 400,000 new cases for the first time. and another 3,000 people died from the virus. >> cnn's clarissa ward went to new delhi, where hospitals are on the verge of collapse there. i don't want you to be caught off guard here. these are disturbing images and disturbing stories but it is what is happening. so, here we go. >> reporter: in delhi now, you're never far from heartbreak. almost everyone in this city has been visited by grief. seemapuri crematorium, the loss weighs heavily in the stale air and the dead are piling up.
3:30 am
there are bodies literally everywhere you turn here. i've honestly never seen anything quite like it. and the organizers say that pre-covid, they might cremate seven or eight people today. today alone they've already cremated 55 bodies and it's not even lunchtime. just months ago, india's leadership boasted that the country had effectively defeated covid. now, it has set global records for new cases, as a terrifying second wave ravages the country. this man says he and his men don't even stop to take breaks. and still, they can barely cope with the flow. a volunteer approaches. they've run out of tables for the bodies, he says. then adds that his mother died from covid the night before. >> you must be tired?
3:31 am
>> rest. >> do you believe the government figures, the death tolls, the covid figures that they're giving or do you think the real figures are much higher? the numbers that you're seeing on television are the numbers of people who are dieing in hospitals, he says. they're not factoring in the people who died at home in isolation. if those numbers are added, the actual number will go up by three times. to keep up with those mounting numbers, the crematorium has been forced to expand, creating an overflow area in a neighboring car park. sharma is saying good-bye to his 45-year-old younger brother. >> last night, we think his health is improving, but then the doctor came and said your brother has expired. >> reporter: do you think his death could have been prevented?
3:32 am
>> yes, yes, i think we can -- we can save him, but at the hospital. >> reporter: india's health care system is at a breaking point. unable to cope with the scale of the crisis, its people left to fend for themselves. this crowd has been waiting for six hours, for the chance to get some oxygen. they can't rely on the state. your mother? how old? is her oxygen very low? >> reporter: how many places have you been to? >> 19. >> reporter: 19?
3:33 am
>> this morning. >> reporter: have you tried taking the hospital? >> there are no beds. >> reporter: there are no beds. >> we tried but -- >> reporter: this woman was lucky enough to find her mother a place in a hospital only to find out there was no oxygen. >> i don't see i have seen in front of me -- what should i do. i'm so scared what's going to happen with my mom. >> reporter: are you angry? >> i'm so angry because our government is so careless, they even don't care about people are suffering. they don't know the suffering. there are so many people who are suffering over this. >> reporter: her mother is now in critical condition. like many here, she feels completely overwhelmed.
3:34 am

twice. but he and his volunteers continue to work 24 hours a day. >> we are to save a life. this is our heart's work. >> reporter: it must hurt your heart to see the way your people are suffering. >> yes, madam, many times we cry also what is going on. >> reporter: it is impossible to escape the tragedy of this vicious second wave. coronavirus is ravaging the old, but it has not spared india's young. the prime minister has announced everyone over the age of 18 can get the vaccine. but with less than 2% of the country inoculated, that offers only a distant hope. so india's capital continues to burn.

the raids by federal agencies of rudy giuliani's apartment and office this week
3:41 am
is raising fears among former president trump's inner circle. the searches are linked to a criminal probe of the former mayor's dealings in ukraine. >> sources close to the former president tell cnn his allies are concerned the raid signals the justice department is more willing to investigate the 45th president and his inner circle than he previously believed. >> reporter: when federal agents swooped in raiding the new york apartment and office of rudy giuliani, they were reportedly trying to zero in on the role that giuliani played in ousting the former ambassador to ukraine marie yovanovitch. according to "the new york times," one search warrant stated it was seeking evidence relate to the yovanovitch ouster. and one sieged located communications that he had about the effort. >> that warrant is completely illegal. >> reporter: on fox news, giuliani denied he was acting on behalf of ukrainians, and
3:42 am
blasted the decision to search his home and office. >> there is no justification for that warrant. it's an illegal, unconstitutional warrant. one of many that this department of justice tragically has done. >> reporter: giuliani, trump's personal attorney, met with ukrainian officials as he attempted to dig up dirt on joe biden, his boss' chief political rival. giuliani's conversations with ukrainians also centered around their desire to remove ambassador yovanovitch, a career diplomat who giuliani believed was hindering his efforts to dig up dirt on biden. during his first impeachment of donald trump, giuliani yovan yovanovitch. >> and i cannot offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me. >> reporter: giuliani's efforts worked, trump was convinced and yovanovitch was removed. >> why did you need her out of the way? >> i didn't need her out of the
3:43 am
way, she was corrupt. >> we have learned that a russian agent, while giuliani was working with ukrainians, the trump administration was warned that some of the information that giuliani was being given was trump foreign intelligence so, very hard to believe that giuliani wouldn't have known that there were very serious concerns about the people he was working with. boris, christi. >> thank you so much. joey jackson a criminal defense attorney and cnn legal analyst with us this morning. joey, good to see you this morning. let's talk about what one trump adviser told cnn, he said this is a show of force that sent a strong message to a lot of people in trump's world that other things may be coming down the pipeline. from a legal standpoint, joey, does this raid tell you that there are people in his inner circle that are vulnerable? >> so, christi, good morning to you. i think it sends a strong message in a number of ways. you know, we need a department

of the justice, and for a long time, we doesn't have one, who is looking at and investigating criminality, no matter where it comes from. it doesn't matter if you're a democrat or republican, if you transgress the law you should be investigated and prosecuted. that includes a former adviser and former lawyer for the president. no one is immune. big picture now, christi, we have merrick garland in charge now, he's given an indication that things are going to be done in a different way. what does that mean? that means patterns and investigations on issues of racial discrimination in police departments, we're not talking about that now, but i'm using that as a reference to say this is a justice department that is not going to be guided by what biden wants investigated, who is my political opponent or enemy, what they're doing or harming with the indication that biden when he was asked did he know about or get an advanced warning about this. and that's how it should work. and for the question, i hope it
3:45 am
represents that not only the president's inner circle or whether anyone politically influenced or not if there are allegations as to impropriety or illegality, you should be investigated and brought to justice. and that's what a justice department is supposed to do. so, yes, i think if they're people in the inner circle of the former president who is involved in transgressions, i think accountability is right around the corner. >> so, joey, giuliani and his attorney both argue that he's been cooperating with investigators for quite some time now, a couple of years. that in fact was covered -- described the raid as, quote, overkill, saying why send seven fbi agents to collect a cell phone and labtop pmp it wasn't there that. it was eat different devices that they collected but if it's true he's cooperating what would a warrant raid and publicity and spectacle that comes with it? >> so, a couple of things, christi. the first thing is i learned to
3:46 am
take anything that he or other people who are biased, you know, with a grain of salt. right, i saw his interview with tucker carlson. i saw him waxing poetic about the biden crime family. about hunter biden about everything. and anything that relates to, you know, everyone else, but what did you do, sir? right? but with regard to the claims that are made, i'm kind of skeptical of that. having said that, let's say you are cooperating. the department of justice and the fbi do things their way, right? the fact of the matter is when they send someone to your home, they don't send one or two agents. there are certain protocols and formalities, right? those protocols and formalities to cure the items they're looking for, in this case a cell phone, they're doing it with measures of protections for them. they don't want certainly any of their subjects being in jeopardy. so what they do, they send people to your house.
3:47 am
they get the items that are based upon a search warrant. they retrieve those items for further analysis. that's what they do. there was no banging down the door. no grenade. no storming into the house. they simply went, followed the protocols. got the items, and in giuliani's terms were very professional. that's the way the department operates and that's the professional way in which they should operate, quite frankly. >> that's what we're seeing. joey jackson, always good to see you. thank you so much for getting up early for us. >> thank you, christi. always. get the mint juleps and seersucker suits ready, derby day sheer. the 147th running of the kentucky derby is tonight. one jockey has a chance to do something that has not been done in over a century. we'll take you to kentucky in just a bit. someday i'm going to marry you. yes someday i'm going to marry you. someday we'll buy that little place on ellsworth. some days, will be rougher than others.
