once for every thousand americans lost to the virus. >> it's so unbelievably sad. welcome to "cbs this morning." i think about this, guys, a year ago, most of us had not even heard of covid-19, coronavirus. and here we sit. >> a year ago this time there were no deaths, zero. now we're at half a million. >> i'm so glad we've done this, to take an important moment for national grieving and reflection. >> president was very kind, are very empathetic. >> intimately aware of what loss is and can do for a family. he spoke from the heart. we're a nation marked by mourning as we mark 500,000 lives lost in the pandemic. as you were just listening the bells of washington's national cathedral tolled yesterday 500 times, once for every thousand americans killed. the white house has ordered flags flown at half staff for
7:04 am
five days. and last night the bidens and the second family held an emotional moment of silence. it is the first official event ever at the white house to honor those we've lost. weijia jiang is at the white house this morning for us. good morning to you, as we were just saying joe biden knows loss intimately, spoke directly to american families who have lost someone. what was his message? >> reporter: good morning, tony, he used exactly, his own personal pain to empathize with others. while he did honor the lives of the more than half a million people lost he also asked americans to repurpose their grief, to prevent even more deaths. >> today, we mark a truly grim heartbreaking milestone. >> reporter: president biden said he felt he knew those who died of covid-19. and certainly, the heartache of their loved ones. >> i know all too well, i know what it's like to not be there when it happens.
7:05 am
>> reporter: the president's first wife and baby daughter were killed in a car crash. he lost his adult son beau to brain cancer. >> i know what it's like when you are there. holding their hands. and the look in their eye as they slip away. >> reporter: the somber ceremony was a departure from former president trump who did not hold a moment of national mourning or a memorial service. but repeatedly downplayed the pandemic. >> we have it very much under control. >> it's not my fault that it came here. it's china's fault. >> november 4th, you won't hear too much about it. >> reporter: dr. anthony fauci on monday seemed to partially blame the previous administration for where we are now. >> i don't think it's, you know, all donald trump, or all this or all that. it's a combination of things. and certainly, the lack of involvement at the very, very top of the leadership. >> reporter: more than 44

million people in the u.s. have been vaccinated so far. putting the biden administration's goal to vaccinate 100 million in 100 days within reach. as some states experience critical vaccine shortages, mr. biden signaled hope. >> this nation will smile again. this nation will know sunny days again. this nation will know joy again. >> reporter: and in a promising sign, the acting fda commissioner said the administration is looking for ways to modify vaccines and therapeutics to tackle those variants of the virus that continue to spread. gayle. >> weijia, thank you very much. many policy decisions on this pandemic in washington, and locally, are driven by the data, which we had no way to gather just a year ago. here at cbs news, we rely on a tool developed by johns hopkins university that helps us understand exactly where we are in this battle. our lead national correspondent, that's david begnaud, spoke to one of the people behind the site. david, good morning.
7:07 am
the numbers are just unthinkable. the numbers matter here and they keep climbing. good morning. >> good morning, my friend, it's sobering to hear. if you go to google and typed in johns hopkins coronavirus dashboard this is what's going to come up. if you look at it, this is all the cases in red. look how many on the eastern half of the country. this is the premier source for coronavirus data in the world. since it launched its had 1 billion page views. to give you a sense of its impact, when the president addressed the nation last night, he said that 571,000 people lost their lives to covid. that exact same number had been published on the dashboard yesterday afternoon. not the cdc's website. the dashboard is run by a team of women, most of them are moms. and we spoke to the woman who is running it all from her own home. it's dinnertime at the blauer house where beth blauer lives with her two young children. upstairs is the online classroom and right down the hall is the office where beth is leading a
7:08 am
team. a team of data scientists at the johns hopkins coronavirus resource center. >> anytime you see data analyzed or you see a map or chart or a graph, we're powering that. >> reporter: blauer is responsible for all of this. the university's covid dashboard. it's been used around the world to track and understand the coronavirus pandemic for nearly a year now. here's how it works. as americans around the country test positive or end up hospitalized with the virus or get vaccinated, that information gets published by federal, state and local health officials. and then it gets vetted by blauer's team. >> we have a team of researchers that will go to every public website and look and see who's reporting, how they're reporting it, how they're defining how things get reported. >> reporter: then they pull in all of that data to get as complete a picture of the outbreak as possible. and then they share it with the world. >> we are committed to making this as effective as possible,
7:09 am
not only for our public users, but also for governments who are having to use this data to navigate p public decisiononmak. >> reporter: the data drive the shutdown, thereby, the reopenings? >> exactly. whether or not your kids have school or this data is powering the decisions that my parents are making when they go to the grocery store. are they going to actually venture out? are you going to actually wear masks? >> reporter: blouer told us a story that's a reminder, she and her team have all had personal experiences with covid. for her it became all too real when her 10-year-old daughter madeline caught the virus. >> she hadn't been anywhere but school and home and she got very sick and it was terrifying. one of the most devastating parts of that was she looked at me and goes i'm a dot on your map now. it tore my heart out, it was awful. >> boy, david, that tears my heart out just hearing it.
7:10 am
you know, those numbers on the map really, really matter. i think it's so important, i'm so struck that this woman is just doing this, operating out of her home, with her kids upstairs, working on their schools, just shows you all the work that's going in to keeping us informed. these numbers matter. >> reporter: yeah, gayle, it's important to remember, a lot of those dots are people, they're faces, right, they're names, people like pamela orlando, she was a new jersey frontline covid nurse, a single mom to two boys, she had had breast cancer and beat it, she documented with her cell phone her daily declinene e to covid because she wanted people to see what the virus could do. alfredo and susan in a pabatel, they died a week apart at the same hospital where he worked and she begged not to go to, fearing she'd die alone. they both died alone. jordan bird, he was taking community classes and getting straight a's, the 19-year-old
7:11 am
was a custodian at the same tallahassee, florida school district where his mom jacqueline worked. they both died of covid, just weeks apart. david lemire from lafayette, louisiana, his father told me he had a deep faith. he and his brother were both hospitalized with covid. david is the one who died. he had asthma as a child but didn't really suffer with it as a teenager, david was just 19. and maria merkader, she fought cancer multiple times and she kept beating it but it was covid that took her life. maria was our beloved cbs news colleague, and she was a friend. we miss her dearly. >> that's when it gets personal. but everybody watching this, either you know someone, or -- >> that's right. >> you know someone who knows someone or it's affected you. it's a very personal story for everybody at all times. david, thank you very much. it's important to hear the
7:12 am
stories. >> maria's loss really hit home for us. there are large racial disparities when it comes to who is getting the covid vaccine. in baltimore, maryland african-americans make up more than 62% of the population, but only about 32% of the vaccinations there have been administered to the black community. our national correspondent jericka duncan takes a look. >> thank you for wearing your mask. >> reporter: that's the voice of kobi little, he drives this truck through baltimore. educating vulnerable communities on the coronavirus, and now the vaccine rollout. little is president of the baltimore city naacp, he says pol policymakers and health care providers are overlooking the needs of the black community. >> i'll give you an example. in this phase rollout one phase
7:13 am
is for seniors 75 and above. in baltimore city the life expectancy of an african-american man does not reach 75. >> this is not unique to baltimore. >> reporter: there are several factors contributing to vaccine inequities says mark martin, maryland's deputy director for the office of minority health and health disparities. >> i hear you say hesitancy and access are big issues when it comes to vaccinating the most vulnerable populations of people. but we spoke to a 62-year-old woman from baltimore -- >> and i haven't been notified to take my shot yet. but i'm waiting. >> reporter: who said she registered at three different locations two months ago to get this vaccine and she hasn't received it yet. >> we continue to work through the registration process, again, one of the things that we try to do is just stand up these vaccination sites as quickly as possible. >> reporter: in addition to expanding vaccination sites martin says the state is turning to churches for help.
7:14 am
>> we are not prepared to fight a virus that is killing persons. >> reporter: churches like new psalmist baptist where the pastor says it's not just about saving souls, it's about saving lives. he wants to turn his church into a vaccination site. do you think it's more of a problem of vaccine hesitancy, or not having the access at this point? >> i think it's both. i think it's an information problem and i think it's a logistics problem. people don't understand, you don't have cvs stores and giants and markets all over large sections of certain african-american communities. they don't exist. row how does that translate into not being able to get a vaccine? >> it all flows down because the economic infrastructure to build those persons up doesn't exist. so half of them don't have cars. >> reporter: martin says the health department's next step is
7:15 am
bringing mobile vaccine units into the heart of the communities that need them the most. how soon do you think that could realistically happen? >> as soon as possible. again -- >> reporter: what does that mean, two weeks, three weeks, two months? >> hopefully within the next couple of months for sure. >> reporter: the city's health department, as you heard, could not give us a timeline as they say it really depends on when those doses come in. as for access the state health department just recently, as of last week, opened up a call center making it easier for people to register to get that vaccine by phone instead of online. tony? >> as the report shows there are decades of disadvantage and you're not going to fix that in a number of days. jerica, thank you very much, we have to try, of course. a new report in the death of an unarmed black man. d black man encounter with police finds the officers were stopped him were wrong. 23-year-old elijah mcclain died in 2018.
7:16 am
a panel of and paramedics violated his rights. >> i have a right to stop you. >> reporter: according to the independent investigation, aurora police in fact had no legal basis to stop, frisk and violently restrain elijah mcclain. the findings offered little comfort to his foather lawane moseley. >> reporter: >> he's very missed. >> reporter: he was stopped by officers answering a 911 about,
7:17 am
quote, sketchy man in a ski mask. >> i am an inintrovert. >> relax, or i'm going to have to change the situation. >> reporter: the report found none of the officers articulated a crime that they thought mr. mcclain had committed or about to commit. >> stop fighting us. >> i'm trying. >> reporter: instead, officers put the 23-year-old in a tight neck hold. and then paramedics sedated the 5'6", 140-pound mcclain with another ketamine for a man weighing 50 pounds more than he did. all without conducting anything more than a brief visual observation. he suffered a heart attack on the way to the hospital and di s days later, sparking protests across the nation. >> i just wish they could have did something different. better training better -- everything, compassion. >> reporter: the report is calling for changes on how the
7:18 am
police department handles use of force cases including improving training and accountability systems. but mcclain's family is demanding more. what is your version of justice look like? >> fired. they shouldn't be police officers. shouldn't be paramedics, period. i asking a grand jury to look into possible charges for those three officers. anthony. >> omar, thank you. it's so clear, elijah mcclain should not have been died. should not have been stopped. >> should not have been stopped. >> the more you hear the worse it is. i didn't know he

department sent $1,200 checks to millions of americans. in december, most were sent another $600. this latest proposal calls for a payment of $1,400 for along with other benefits. bill joins us to sort it all out for us. who gets it in this new plan? >> if you have income up to $75,000 as an individual or $150,000 as amaried couple, you are going to probably get this $1,400 check. a couple of differences from the past two checks, the $1,200 and the $600. this will be eligible for older dependents. you got a smaller amount for kids in the second rounds. and this is for older kids, those college kids. they will probably get that full $1,400. the phase-out means you will get less money if you make above those thresholds, and you are completely phased out if you make more than $100,000 as an
8:17 am
individual and more than $200,000 as a couple. so these are numbers that are really good for families, and i'm very excited about that dependent number because it really helps many more families. >> i'll say. older dependents. you mean over the age of 18 or over the age of 21. >> exactly. all dependents. even if they're in their 20s. if you are in college, you are still going to get that $1,400 check. that's big. if they're in colleg still getting that check. >> let's talk about the unemployment numbers. are there any plans for unemployment benefits here? >> reporter: absolutely, remember, the plan passed in december gave people out of work an extra $300 of federal benefits. that number is set to go up to $400 per week on top of your state unemployment. remember, gang, don't forget, this is taxable income to you. stimulus checks are not. these are taxable dollars. but what's really interesting other stimulus is running out in
8:18 am
march. march 11th. this would take us through probably the end of august for that extra unemployment. that would be great news because a lot of these jobs are not coming back. it's going to take people a longer period of time to find new work. >> you know this, jill, it sort of picks up what you just said, a lot of families are still struggling financially. is there anything else in the bill that would help them? >> reporter: there's a big push to help the people most impacted negatively by covid. and that is, the people who make less than $50,000. there are some really important aspects of this. an expansion of sick and paid you medical leave for families. that will be very important for those people who don't have insurance right now. we also are likely to see an expansion of the child tax credit. up to $3,000 per child. $3600 if your kid's and you the age of 6. then a big piece for this tax season, the earned income tax
8:19 am
credit. this is usually for lower-wage americans. they're going to expand the level, at which you can receive it. so, you put these three things together. that's a lot of help for american families. it's also why the price tag at $1.9 trillion is starting to balloon, because of all of these extras that weren't in previous plans. >> jill, one more point of help potential. a $15 minimum federal wage in the bill will that survive? how hopeful will people feel right now? >> i don't think it's likely to survive. there's a technicality whether this can actually get in through budget reconciliation which is how the democrats are likely to pass this. just remember, $15 minimum wage exists in many places. many states are moving that way. i think we are on the path to getting to a $15 minimum wage. by the way, you think it sounds like a lot of money, it's about 31,000 bucks a year. we're not talking about paying people $100,000 a year. i don't think it gets into this
8:20 am
bill. but the democrats led by bernie sanders are really pushing hard on this one. >> jill schlesinger, thank you very much. i want to tuck in a mention about the stock trading platform robinhood which is increasing customer support after being accused of not giving clients help. in one case that alleged lack of help causing a young man's death. robinhood said it is adding hundreds of financial reps. did it last year, it's going to double that number this year. in a statement, robinhood said, quote, we want to make sure we're there for customers especially in time-sensitive situations. specifically mentioning live phone support, more customers with options issues. now, that is exactly the issue that alex kearns faced. remember, we told you about kearns, he's the 20-year-old who mistakenly believed he lot three quarters of a million dollars in failed options trades. he took his life after year after robinhood did not respond
8:21 am
to several emails for help. we spoke to his parents about it. do you think in robinhood had somebody manning the email account or picking up a phone, that alex would be here today? >> absolutely. >> yeah, i have no doubt. >> he just wanted an answer. >> he just needed a little help. he could have gotten answers to those questions. and there was nobody there to do that for him. >> kearns family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against robinhood. the trading app said at the time it was devastated by the concerkearns death. this could help other families, but for their family, though -- >> it's not going to help the kearns family. but it does sound like robinhood is listening. >> yeah, definitely taking action. >> what were you going to say, anthony? >> i hope they're listening. there was a demonstration at the congressional hearing where they got a recorded message again. ahead, a california pastor using alcoholics anonymous
