the passengers were infected before they boarded the flight, but they were showing no symptoms. we are hearing from an american man who decided not to board the evacuee plane. >> that is essentially true. we have been tested and we haven't received results. we have no reason to believe we are infected. we didn't believe the conditions were safe to break the japanese quarantine and put us all together. in fact, now having learned they put 14 infected persons on the plane, we are all the more glad. >> dana: health officials say the virus has infected more than 70,000 people, killing more than 1700. that doesn't tell you the horror story, we will have more than that. we have fox coverage. jonathan serrie is standing by in atlanta for the center for disease control and are headquartered. the beacon with claudia tallon, she is reporting live from
travis airport. some of those passengers are quarantined. claudia? >> that is right. it's about an hour north of san francisco. this is where the first of these two charter fights touched down shortly before midnight last night. the other plane going to a joint air base in san antonio, texas. these rescue measurements did not exactly go according to planned with at least 14 infected passengers being allowed to evacuate and possibly now posing a risk to others. it wasn't discovered they had the coronavirus until the whole group, about 340 people were already headed to the airport. according to the state department, they were kept isolated on the aircraft and will not be traded at milliken facilities off base. everybody else will begin a new 14 day quarantine. back on the base year. despite the isolation periods, she posted videos about their
experience on the ship, she said her parents are happy to be back in united states. >> they are thrilled to be able to have access to u.s. doctors and get a handle on the whole situation. they are thrilled to be off the plane. >> it is not over yet, they face another quarantine on top of the two weeks. that became a hot spot for the coronavirus. at least 44 americans have tested positive and are being treated at hospitals in japan. several others have chosen to stay aboard on that ship and finish out the original quarantine which is set to end in a matter of days. it is unclear when those folks who chose to stay will be allowed to return back to the united states. we are told and might not be until march. >> dana: what about the cruise ship that is in cambodia? >> that is right. this is another cruise ship we
have to worry about. it's a dutch cruise ship, holland america. in 83-year-old american woman who was on that cruise ship has also tested positive for the coronavirus after getting off that ship and flying to malaysia. officials have allowed the ship to dock there after five other asian nations have turned it away after fears that this virus will spread. passengers and crew, more than 2,000 people are being tested and carefully monitored. we understand this elderly american woman, 83 years old is the only person to test positive for the coronavirus from this dutch cruise ship. >> dana: we hope she gets better. thank you. let's go to jonathan serrie. the cdc is closely monitoring this outbreak. things are quite uncertain still. >> that is right. the situation is very fluid. some of those evacuees that claudia discussed were taken to
a hospital in omaha, nebraska, for further evaluation. a total of 13 americans, some of them have tested positive for the virus. others are displaying symptoms and have a high likelihood of being infected with the virus. in the meantime, officials with the world health organization say the latest statistics out of china suggests this new virus may not be quite as deadly as previous coronavirus outbreaks. if you look at the virus, more than 80% of the patience developed only mild symptoms. many of these patience have already made full recoveries. 14% of cases are considered for severe and 5% are critical. 2% of the cases are fatal and the chances of death increase with age. >> the data appears to show a
decline in new cases. this trend must be interpretative very cautiously. trends can change as new populations are affected. >> over the weekend french health officials reported the first death outside of asia. the patient was an 80-year-old tourist from a providence who had been isolated at a hospital since testing positive in late january. the patient's daughter also tested positive. she is retrievin receiving treat she is doing considerably better and is expected to be discharged shortly. >> dana: you can see how quickly it can spread around the world. the chinese president is taking new criticism over his handling of the outbreak. what is driving that? >> xi jinping, the president of china gave a speech early this month saying that as early as january 7th, he was calling the
shots and navigating the nation's response to this coronavirus outbreak. clearly this is an effort by the communist government to show it has a handle on this virus. at the same time, critics both inside and outside china are saying, if xi jinping knew about this virus so early, why didn't he alert to the general public? the common people could take some of their own precautions. it could go either way. >> dana: we will keep a close eye on that. let's bring in dr. david, he is working on a coronavirus vaccine. wonderful to have you here. how do you begin to try to find the vaccine for something that seems so uncertain? >> thank you. we have been using our experience in developing a rapid synthetic dna vaccines for other
outbreaks. in this case, applying it to cobit 19. her previous experiences were with developing a backup ebola vaccine with a team. also with vaccine, the previous coronavirus vaccine led by an obo. a third vaccine that took seven months to move into the clinic for a zeke, also with the same team. >> dana: how long does it take to go from the outbreak, when you first hear about it, to actually getting a vaccine? >> one of the interesting things about this outbreak in the world's preparation, the united states, the global community, the coalition for epidemic preparedness and novation was right on top of this outbreak. they moved to find several groups with really innovative
technologies that can be deployed much quicker. normally it takes several -- more than a decade to develop a new vaccine. these teams that were assembled were focused on developing technologies that could be deployed in the clinic erratically in a few months. that is the goal, to get us into the clinic with simple, nonlive vaccine approaches that are all synthesized. >> dana: can i ask you a question, i get the flu shot every year. i know not everybody does, but i do. if i already got that flu shot, when this vaccine becomes available, should i get that one too? >> i think this vaccine, the first vaccine will be deployed in the outbreak situation, can be tested by the multiple groups that are developing. how they will play out and be deployed, people that are yearly
surveillance, we don't know that yet. >> dana: we will keep in touch with you because w you know a lt more than we know. thank you. >> thank you. most of the 2020 democratic candidates are moving onto nevada and going after michael bloomberg was now busy dealing with more of his past comments. our political panel superstars are up next. ♪

what about bloomberg having all of these past comments? after two months of a heavy barrage. >> so far he is alienated african-americans with stop and frisk, woman with the comments with the profane comments at "the washington post." now we have something against farmers. by the time super tuesday comes around, there is no one left. the thing about these comments, he said i can teach everyone in this room how to be a farmer. really? michael bloomberg. there was a demeaning context. >> dana: i'm sure my uncle matt is not happy. placing atomic listen to listen to amy klobuchar talking about michael bloomberg. >> he can't hide behind the airwaves. he asked to answer questions and of course i think you should be on the debate stage, which eventually he will be. i can't beat them on the airway, but i can beat them on the

now. i think he is a long shot. >> dana: he has long said that south carolina is his firewall, has not maintained? >> i think so. talking to folks over the weekend, including my family who lives there, they still like joe biden. he has a good following and south carolina. he has to do well and nevada. he has to do well at the debate on wednesday. i hope michael bloomberg makes the debate. i want people to construct him, because we know his money. the one what to think about him going after bernie sanders bernie sanders? >> interesting. he was going after bernie bros, not bernie sanders. some of these supporters in bernie's camp, they have a history of being a little bit aggressive. that's a good word. spew what i was the press secretary. i can't help myself sometimes. >> their people inside his camp that i've worked with over the
years, especially in 2016, the democrats just like me. there are some of them who are not so typical. >> dana: what should bernie sanders do? does he have a problem? some of his supporters being hostile online, bullying. >> i think there is a reputation there and at times he has condemned it. he has to manage a fine line. the one thing about him, he has a core of committed supporters that are with him no matter what. that is one of the problems. the schism continues to exist. those are the folks that, whoever the nominee is, they will have to bring those folks over. >> dana: when you watch the debate, what you have for dinner? how do you watch yet? does it make you nervous? you love it? >> this sounds strange, i watched the last one so bear

rule of law to require mr. barr to resign." democratic lawmakers say they do not expect he will step down, but they say it should be looked into. here's minnesota presidential contender amy klobuchar. >> i would be glad if he resigned, i just don't think that is realistic. i would also like him to come to the senate so we can probe him on the role of the president, and try to influence a decision in the department of justice. >> the department of justice and the white house both deny the president was trying to influence the attorney general. we have confirmed that the new interim u.s. attorney for the district of columbia, tim shea, he received the recommendation of the prosecutors thought it was excessive. five of the 7 of 9 years were and enhancements to the sentencing guidelines. he gave in when those four prosecutors threatened to withdraw from it. tvol was already rolling to reduce the recommendation when
the president tweeted about it. it made it look like the doj was doing his bidding. john kennedy of louisiana suggested the president probably should not have sent that tweet. listen. >> just because -- does the president have the right to tweet about a case? of course. just because you can sing, doesn't mean you should sing. this is a case where tweeting this would not cause brain damage. speak with the white house continuing to defend the president's position. if the president's chief of staff saying, the president's frustration is one that a lot of americans have which feels like the scales of justice are not balanced. the department of justice does deferring to amy jackson on the sentencing. she is also holding a phone hearing tomorrow on roger stone roger stone's attorney's petition for a retrial. grant smith, the attorney claims to make a hard, the jury for
person and the trial was biased. she has issued a number of anti-trump tweets, tweets that are critical of the president over the last year. she was a democratic contender for congress back in 2012. they think there is too much bias in there for their liking. they have asked for a retrial. we have no idea what judge jackson is going to say. what is interesting, it's a few days before stone is scheduled to be sentenced. >> dana: john roberts, thank you. after the chaos of the iowa caucuses, the nevada democratic party announcing its stitching plans to use a voting app. not every state is following suit and print lawson has more. >> west virginia is now allowing mobile voting for citizens who have a problem getting to the polls. >> if someone doesn't have use of their arms or their hands
