♪ good morning, america. we hope you all are well this friday morning. we are following all the latest on the coronavirus outbreak and tracking tropical storm fay. that's a live look at ocean city, new jersey, right now as the storm closes in on the east coast. >> rough waters right there already. we'll talk about that more in a moment. first we begin with the coronavirus pandemic this morning as the number of new daily cases climbs past 50,000 again. there are new signs that re-opening too soon is having dire consequences. take a look at this chart. it shows the change in average daily cases since re-opening. florida was one of the first to ease restrictions and now it is one of the hardest hit. >> now hear this, dr. fauci says some states may need to pause, consider rolling back re-openings. 13 states now reporting issues with testing availability and access. >> that includes arizona where
7:03 am
one third of the covid tests are coming back positive. matt gutman starts us off in phoenix. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. the numbers over the past couple of weeks have been mind-numbing the need for testing is as plain as day here. that car was here at midnight. there are already dozens of cars here. the government telling us what you're seeing here is the collapse of the health care system. this morning, a dire warning from top medical expert, dr. anthony fauci recommending sun belt hot spots like texas, arizona and florida pause their re-openings. >> there are some times, when despite the guidelines and the recommendations to open up carefully and prudently, some states skipped over those and just opened up too quickly. >> reporter: this as the nation's coronavirus testing crisis playing out in this epic gridlock. cars lining up for hours. this may look like a parking lot but it is a testing site. now, they've administered over 1,300 tests here today but there
7:04 am
will be hundreds of people back there who don't make the cutoff. hundreds in line by 1:00 a.m. is it worth waking up at midnight to be out here at 1 a.m.? >> i don't have a choice. >> because you don't have insurance? >> correct and i'm not going to get at the back of the line like i was last week. >> and not get tested? >> correct. >> reporter: one car overheating and bursting into flames, and hundreds had to be turned away. >> i had a gentleman who was in tears because he had waited so long and for so many days and that's what breaks my heart. >> reporter: on thursday arizona governor doug ducey addressing covid publicly for the first time in over a week, but not offering much change. >> today there's a new executive order that will limit indoor dining to less than 50% occupancy. you want to be in places where you can limit the number of people. >> reporter: for those waiting in the predawn heat that's not enough. if you could ask governor ducey one question, what would it be?
7:05 am
>> why isn't there more testing? i mean, we are number one in the world. >> in the world. >> there should be more testing available to us. >> reporter: as cases surge, hospitals reaching capacity. dr. fauci speaking to fivethirtyeight's podcast 19. >> as a country when you compare us to other countries, i don't think you can say we're doing great. i mean, we're just not. >> reporter: in florida more than 50 hospitals have zero icu beds available. this graph by "the new york times" showing a nearly 1,400% increase in average daily covid cases compared to when florida re-opened about two months ago. and overnight miami-dade school superintendent, the fourth largest school district in the country, telling abc news despite the governor's order, his schools will not re-open until the county enters phase 2. tonya wooddell a nurse traveling

7:07 am
limited capacity and when parishioners come here they'll see the new rules, wear a mask, make sure to use hand sanitizer and social distance. but across the country pastors are making a tough decision to keep their churches closed. they're saying it's too dangerous to praise in person. this morning, worship whiplash. some churches that re-opened now closing amid new covid-19 spikes. "the new york times" reporting more than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the country. many over the last month. pastor derek allen of mobile, alabama stopping in-person services earlier this month. he says as the number of covid cases in his church started rising even though the state didn't mandate it. >> i do know that people really, really suffer with this particular disease. and so watching our people suffer and knowing that if we have an in-person service that it was likely to spread, even further in our congregation, that's why we decided to go back
7:08 am
online. >> reporter: outbreaks linked to churches have happened in several states. recently in oregon, texas, west virginia and tennessee. in june, florida teen carsyn davis attended a church function with 100 other kids. according to the medical examiner, the 17-year-old who had pre-existing conditions didn't wear a mask or social distance. three days later she started to feel symptoms. ten days after that. she died. and back in march, just north of seattle, more than 50 members of a community choir became infected with covid-19 after rehearsal. two of the members died. the cdc calling that event a superspreader. finding that just one asymptomatic person infected 52 others. >> having had two friends that i sing with that died because of this it is not worth it. it is not worth it. >> reporter: health experts worry even with social
7:09 am
distancing, in closed spaces singing and sermons can spread the virus through the air. >> churches are particularly concerning because you have a lot of people singing loudly in choirs. as a result, you have a lot of particles spreading getting on other people and, hence, increasing their chances of getting the coronavirus. >> reporter: now as an alternative many churches have opted to stream services on youtube and facebook. it's nowhere near the same experience as gathering and fellowship, but many pastors feel it's the safest thing to do right now. >> very well might be, tom. thank you. dr. ashish jha, director of the harvard global health institute is joining us now. doctor, thank you so much for talking to us this morning. we heard there in tom's piece some of these churches, places of worship are considered superspreader sites. as we head into the weekend, what do you want people to know if they're going to go to church and should they be going? >> yes, good morning and thank you for having me on.
7:10 am
what we know is that any indoor gathering of a large number of people is risky, especially if you're in a hot spot and obviously in places where there's singing or chanting or other things where those can really spread the virus. so i think if you're in most parts of the country right now, large gatherings indoors, including church services and other religious services is really risky. and i understand it's deeply meaningful for many of us, but i think we have to be very careful right now and try to avoid it if possible. >> we have this warning also this morning from dr. fauci talking about states with severe outbreaks, saying perhaps states should consider hitting the pause button. i'm wondering if once the cat is out of the bag, can we really do that now? can we put the pause button on some of these states? >> i think dr. fauci is trying his best to be very diplomatic. in some places i think things are getting so bad or are so bad they may need to go back to a shelter in place order.
7:11 am
i look at arizona, the 50% restaurant occupancy. that's way too little too late at this point. i think the cat is out of bag in many ways, and states have to ratchet back what kind of re-opening they've done. >> we're seeing around the country these long lines. people waiting in blistering heat to get tested. sometimes the results of these tests are taking a week plus to get back to people. is our testing system collapsing right now? >> yeah, you know, cecilia, this is something a lot have been talking about for months and saying we really need a far more robust testing infrastructure. dr. fauci has said that. all of us in the public health world have been saying that. unfortunately, our political leaders have not invested in that and now we're seeing substantial strains and in some places it really is starting to collapse and that is going to be -- that's going to make fighting the virus much harder. >> what we're hearing from people on the front lines is a shortage of ppes, icu bed shortages, and it sounds like what we heard back in march. can we handle the surge we're
7:12 am
facing? >> yeah, you know, it's one thing when it happened in march when you could argue we were unprepared. we didn't know it would be this bad. for this to happen in july in states like texas and arizona and florida, in my mind it's just unconscionable. we have to protect our health care workers and i can't believe we're going through this again. but we do need to continue to push on ramping up, otherwise, it will be very difficult for the frontline workers to take care of people. >> dr. jha, i want to ask this. you have health experts like dr. fauci saying, pause. you have political leaders like the president saying go. who should people be listening to? >> you know, this is a public health crisis. this is a medical crisis and when you are sick or have a medical problem you want to listen to your doctor and not your politician. and to me this is pretty clear who people need to be listening to. experts like dr. fauci, dr. birx, leaders in the cdc, those are the people who need to be heard right now, not our political leaders.
7:13 am
>> dr. jha as always, we appreciate your voice. thank you. t.j. we need to turn to tropical storm fay now. it's closing in on the east coast with winds hitting 50 miles an hour and our rob marciano tracking this tropical threat for us. good morning to you, rob. >> hey, good morning, t.j. already on to the name of fay as we get into not even the middle really of july. here's a look at what it's doing right now. ocean city, new jersey, ocean city, maryland, also getting waves and wind and this will be increasing throughout the day and asbury park, a typical spot we see storms coming in you see the waves acting up as well. the center, 50 miles southeast of ocean city, maryland with 50-mile-per-hour winds and now we have tropical storm warnings that are posted for the jersey coastline, long island and all the connecticut coastline and already have flash flood warnings for parts of delaware. here's the forecast track. line not that important. we don't expect a whole lot of strengthening with this. it will be windy and some coastal flooding and certainly going to be rain later on this afternoon, tonight and into tomorrow morning and some of
7:14 am
that rain is going to create some flooding. we'll talk about that in just a few minutes. george? >> rough weekend ahead here. okay, rob, thank you very much. to the white house now where the president is facing his worst marks yet for handling the coronavirus emergency. our new abc news/ipsos poll shows 67% of americans disapprove of how he's handling the crisis. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent, jon karl. jon, the same number disapprove of how the president is handling race relations. >> reporter: george, these are staggeringly bad numbers for the president especially when you consider that these are the two biggest crises of his presidency, and there you have two-thirds of the public disapproving of how he is handling them. if you look further into the poll, it gets worse for the president. of course, the majority, the vast majority of democrats disapprove but look at independents. a whopping 73% of independents in this poll disapprove of how the president is handling the covid-19 crisis. he's even losing support among republicans, 22% disapproving, and on race relations, the
7:15 am
disapproval extends all racial groups, 57% of whites disapproving. 92% of blacks disapproving and 83% of hispanics disapproving of his handling of race relations. >> meantime, we had major rulings from the supreme court yesterday on the president's financial records and tax returns finding that he doesn't have absolute immunity from grand jury proceedings but that doesn't mean we'll see the tax returns any time soon. >> reporter: on one hand it was a total defeat for the president, 9-0 on the question of whether or not the president has absolute immunity as the president argued, so he doesn't have that, but make no mistake, these tax returns are going to be secret for some time. the grand jury in new york can get them but, of course, grand jury proceedings are secret. i don't expect we'll see those tax returns for a long time. >> the president also laying out some strong hints he's prepared to pardon or commute the sentence of his former associate roger stone. >> reporter: he sure did on an
7:16 am
interview with sean hannity last night, clearly implying this was something he is considering. this would put him at odds, by the way, with his own attorney general, bill barr, who said he thinks stone's sentence was appropriate. the sentence was 40 months for lying to congress, misleading investigators, but the president seems to be inclined to at least commute that sentence. we will see. >> jon karl, thanks very much. t.j.? we shift to the return of sports. the final nba team arriving in orlando to enter that so-called basketball bubble as they prepare to restart the season but the covid outbreak created some setbacks. will reeve in florida with more for us. will, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, t.j. with the final teams arriving on site in this non-weatherproof bubble, it is in full effect and as we've reported, players and staff must self-isolate for 48 hours when they arrive and then need to get two negative coronavirus tests 24 hours apart
7:17 am
before they can begin practicing. some teams have started their practices already and we've been getting glimpses inside the bubble from the players themselves on social media. a lot of video game setups in their rooms. those talked about players-only lounges with ping-pong tables look pretty good. patrick beverley of the clippers saying the bubble is what you make it. covid concerns are, of course, top of mind. strict protocols in place regarding mask wearing and the integrity of the bubble overall. superstar joel embiid was seen wearing a full body protective suit for the flight down here. two washington wizards players, it was announced yesterday, did not travel down here at all due to positive tests and the nba has also faced some criticism regarding testing, and the frequency and some say it could take away resources for more vulnerable members of the popular in florida as cases surge, t.j.
7:18 am
>> we appreciate the sports and weather report from him down in florida. thank you. >> really coming down down there. coming up next the search for "glee" star naya rivera. recovery mission under way as authorities look at this surveillance video showing the actress and her 4-year-old son leaving on a boat trip. also new details about ghislaine maxwell's life behind bars, but first, back over to rob. hi, cecilia. tropical storm fay heading in this direction and we'll have a lot of rain with this. some need it. some don't. flash flood watches posted from maryland all the way to massachusetts. there you see the leading edge of that rainfall. could see two, three, four, maybe five plus inches before it is done. time now for your weekend forecast sponsored by caesars rewards.

7:39 am
trafficking or abuse saying, as far as i'm concerned, everyone who came to his house was an adult professional person. going on to say, i am not aware of teenagers who worked in his home pointing out it's important to understand that i wasn't with jeffrey all the time, in fact, i was only in the house less than half the time so i cannot testify to when i wasn't in the house, but federal authorities say she lied during those depositions and is now facing two perjury charges for some of her statements. and today we will get a first glimpse at maxwell's defense. her attorneys have a 1:00 p.m. deadline to respond to why she should be granted bail. prosecutors have said that she's a flight risk because she has access to large amounts of money and she has a lot of international connections. george? >> thanks very much. you can see a special two-hour "20/20" tonight at 9:00 p.m. on the jeffrey epstein case.

morning. if new us continues now with good morning america. ♪ come on baby ♪ louder, louder welcome back. we are so excited for the greatest surfer of all tile, 11 world titles. >> amazing. he also holds the distinction of being the youngest ever world champion as well as the oldest ever world champion and now he is one of the amazing athletes featured in a new documentary series called "greatness code." please welcome, guys, kelly slater. good morning to you. >> hi, guys. good morning. >> we're so happy you are here. we'll start off with a flashback friday and it involves -- we'll go way back to the early 1990s. it involves going head-to-head with an octopus?
8:31 am
>> so i hear. it's been a while. >> tell us about it. that is you and an octopus. >> i can't see the clip but this was -- i did "baywatch" for a couple of seasons, on seven shows, and one of the brilliant story lines was that we go into a cave, and an octopus was collecting them. it was a good -- well, it was special. >> he says brilliant story lines. one the brilliant story lines, wow. >> brilliant. >> good sarcasm this early in the morning. but the documentary to the series we're talking about stalks about pivotal moments for great athletes called "greatness code." what exactly does that mean? how do you define that, greatness code? >> greatness code, i think it's that point in your life as an athlete that makes or breaks you, the thing that potentially makes you great at your skill, your sport.
8:32 am
it's a moment in time that, you know, you're kind of called to duty to accomplish your goal and you can see it and you're not there yet, but you know what you have to do. >> let's take a look at a clip. >> i really think of it like a spiritual experience for myself every day. feeling of riding a wave, tapping that energy that's there, i'm not a religious person. that's my church. my church is surfing, and there's nowhere else in the world that i get that feeling from. >> when did you first have that feeling when you were on a board? >> when did i first -- the first -- so i can't see you guys, so i'm not sure if we're watching or listening. my first -- the first time i had that feeling, i was maybe about 5 years old. i remember i used to ride these styrofoam boards you bought for
8:33 am
about 5 bucks at the little store up the street and i was riding a wave and a guy said, how do you stand up on that thing? i said, i don't know, i'm really light. just stand up and ride and maybe when i was about 8, my dad first really saw me surf a wave and i did some maneuvers that felt like i was doing the right thing. >> you make it look so easy. we know surfing is set to be in the olympics for the first time in tokyo. you are an alternate on the u.s. team. so what about 2024? you thinking ahead at all? >> well, i'm still thinking about next year. we'll see both the guys ahead of me, kind of the man to beat these days. from san clemente, california, he threatened the world titles. i was just behind those guys and they both had injuries, numerous injuries for john and one last year for him so i'm trying to
8:34 am
stay healthy in case that spot opens up, but i didn't surf my way on and just said 2024 is another deal. they'll probably be running it. it'll be in france but we'll compete in tahiti, they're saying, which is a french territory at a really dangerous amazing wave which i've had a lot of success at. i'm not looking forward to being pro four years from now, would be basically retired but would probably be the oldest olympic athlete if i made the team. >> wow. well, we are cheering you on, whatever you decide to do. thank you, kelly slater. all episodes of "greatness code" available to stream on apple tv plus. >> hey, lara. hey, so we're going to move on now to the trailblazing brazilian model, valentina sampaio, who is the first openly transgender model to pose for victoria's secret. well,now another first. she's featured in "the sports
