THE SPRING AND CORRESPONDENT DR JOHN TORREZ THEY ARE TO SAYING EXACTLY THE COVID-19 THAT WAS RELATED TO THE COLLAPSE, BUT COULD IT HAVE BEEN AND WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED? >> GOOD MORNING IT'S HARD NOT TO BELIEVE THAT COVID-19 HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS HE WAS ASYMPTOMATIC WITH NO SYMPTOMS AND HE WENT THROUGH A LIST OF WHAT WE USUALLY LOOK FOR BUT EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE SYMPTOMS, IF COVID-19 IS IN YOUR BODY AND YOU HAVE A SCHEDULE WHERE YOU HAVE EXHAUSTION AND DEHYDRATION, THAT CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS

IF YOU ADD COVID- 19, THAT COMPLICATES THE PICTURE DAY AFTER DAY WHEN HE DOES HIS GIGS, DEHYDRATION AND EXHAUSTION, COVID-19 TAKES AN EXTRA TOLL AND HE COLLAPSED ON STAGE LIKE HE DID THANKFULLY, HE IS DOING MUCH, MUCH BETTER AND WE HOPE HE FULLY RECOVERS >> DEFINITELY IT WAS AN INDOOR CLUB AND HE TALKED ABOUT BEING ON THE ROAD AND THAT HE WAS ASYMPTOMATIC

WHAT WAS THE LIKELIHOOD HE WAS SPREADING THE VIRUS IN THE CLUB WHILE TRAVELING ON THOSE KINDS OF THINGS? >> IF YOU LOOK AT THE VIDEO, SOME PEOPLE WERE WEARING MASKS AND OTHERS MIGHT NOT BE THERE IS AN INCREASED RISK OF THEM GETTING IT AND THE BIGGER RISK IS WITH THE STAGEHANDS AND STUFF WITH THE ISSUES IT CAN BE VERY HARD TO CONTACT TRACER EVERYBODY THAT MIGHT HAVE COME INTO CONTACT WITH HIM AND IT IS DIFFICULT WHEN SOMEBODY GETS INFECTED AND THAT IS A DIFFICULT THING WITH THE DISEASE SPREADING AS FAST AS IT IS >> DR JOHN, WITH HEADLINES, THE NUMBER OF CASES IN YOUNG PEOPLE IS SPIKING, ESPECIALLY IN FLORIDA

HOW DO YOU ACCOUNT FOR THAT? >> THE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE THOSE GOING OUT AND THIS SHOWS THAT WHEN THEY GO OUT, THEY AREN'T NECESSARILY TAKING THE MEASURES WE TALK ABOUT WITH FACE MASKS IN SOCIAL DISTANCING AND SMALL GROUPS THEY ARE NOT DOING THAT AND CATCHING IT MORE OFTEN THE ONES 65 AND ABOVE, A HIGH RISK OF DEVELOPING CORONAVIRUS COMPLICATIONS, THEY ARE STAYING HOME THEY ARE WARY ABOUT GOING OUT AND SO IT IS THE YOUNGER ONES IN THE BARS AND CONGREGATING AND THEY ARE TENDING TO GET CORONAVIRUS, AT THIS POINT HOPEFULLY, GOING FORWARD, THEY GET THE MESSAGE AND DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO KEEP SAFE

>> YOUNG PEOPLE GO HOME AND LIVE WITH THEIR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS AND THAT IS A RISK DR JOHN, THANK YOU AND WE APPRECIATE IT >>> IT STARTED OUT JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DAY AT THE BEACH FOR 16- YEAR-OLD NICK ARTHUR FROM NORTH CAROLINA HE AND HIS SISTER WERE JUMPING OVER WAVES ON A SAND BAR 25 FEET FROM THE SHORE AND ON THE OUTER BANKS NEAR CAPE HATTERAS, WHEN NICK STARTED SCREAMING

THE FAMILY SPOKE TO WG HP >> I TRIED LIFTING UP MY LEG AND I THOUGHT, OH MY GOD, A SHARK ATTACKED MY LEG >> HIS SISTER SWAM FOR HELP AND THEIR FATHER CAME TO THE RESCUE >> THERE WAS BLOOD AND I COULDN'T REALLY SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON >> THEY WERE HITTING THE SHARK BUT WHEN TIM ARTHUR KICKED ITS NOSE, LET GO

THERE ARE 43 PUNCTURE MARKS ON NEXT LEG AND HE SURVIVED WITH SCRATCHES TO HIS HANDS, STITCHES TO HIS LEGS BUT NO SERIOUS DAMAGE EARLIER THIS MONTH, TWO FISHERMEN WERE SURPRISED BY A GREAT WHITE SHARKS CIRCLING THEIR BOAT NEAR OCEAN CITY, MARYLAND DESPITE THEIR PRESENCE, FEWER SHARK ATTACKS HAVE BEEN REPORTED THIS YEAR, ACCORDING TO THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA SHARK ATTACK FILE, LIKELY DUE TO BEACH CLOSURES DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC ON AVERAGE, THERE ARE 80 SHARK ATTACKS EACH YEAR >> THE ODDS ARE REALLY, REALLY LOW

>> SO FAR, 18 DOCUMENTED SHARK BITES HAVE BEEN REPORTED WORLDWIDE WITH AT LEAST SEVEN IN THE US, INCLUDING NORTH CAROLINA, FLORIDA, HAWAII, NORTH CALIFORNIA AND DELAWARE SHARK ATTACKS ARE RARE BUT CAN BE DEADLY JUST LAST MONTH, SIR FOR BEN AND KELLY DIED AFTER BEING ATTACKED BY A GREAT WHITE SHARK 100 YARDS OFF THE COAST OF SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA

AS THE SUMMER HEATS UP AND BEACHES ARE REOPENING, EXPERTS SAY IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE WITHIN RANGE OF SOMEONE TO SIST YOU >> NO ONE THINKS THAT WILL HAPPEN TO THEM UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO THEM >>> WITH THE CHAOS, TRYING TO TEACH ABOUT PEACE >> THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER WAY AND THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO SAY >>> THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION OFFICIALLY CALLED IT A PANDEMIC TODAY AND NONE OF US IS UNAFFECTED BY THE IMPACT

JUST DON'T FEEL LESS THAN THAT'S MY THING >> WE CAN HAVE THESE DISCUSSIONS AND I FEEL SAFE TALKING ABOUT THIS WITH YOU GUYS >>> YOU ARE WATCHING NBC NEWS NOW >> WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS

>> WE SAW A LARGE CONVOY OF THE NATIONAL GUARD COMING THROUGH HERE >> NEWS FOR YOUR STREAMING WORLD LIVE WEEKDAY STARTING AT 6:00 am EASTERN

>>> A VIRUS THAT KNOWS NO BORDERS >>> THE GLOBAL FIGHT UNITES US >> PEOPLE HAVE SAID IF THEY DON'T WORK THEY CAN FEED THEIR FAMILIES >> THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT IS BRINGING STUDENTS BACK OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS IN STAGES >> YOU CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW IT WILL IMPACT US HERE

>> LIFE ACROSS ITALY IS BACK TO NORMAL, IT JUST DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE SAME NORMAL AS BEFORE >>> THE ONLY THING WE HAVE IS FEAR, ITSELF >> THESE ARE THE UNITED STATES, THE UNITED PEOPLE WITH A UNITED FIRST >>> A GREAT PEOPLE HAS BEEN MOVED TO DEFEND A GREAT NATION >> ALL OF US CAN EXTEND A HAND TO THOSE IN NEED Y MOT IMPORTANT

>> THAT WAS NBC'S MORGAN CHESKY REPORTING THERE JOINING US NOW >>> JOINING US TO BREAK DOWN THESE NEW DEVELOPMENTS, NBC NEWS MEDICAL CONTRIBUTOR, DR GOOFED UP PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING CASES, A LOT OF FOLKS ASSERT IT'S BECAUSE WE ARE SIMPLY TESTING MORE, DR GUPTA

FACT OR FICTION? >> THE ANSWER TO THAT, IT'S NOT TRUE CASES ARE RISING OUTER PROPORTION FOR THE AMOUNT OF TESTING CONDUCTED NATIONWIDE AND PARTICULARLY IN THE 26 STATES YOU HIGHLIGHTED THIS IS NOT JUST A FUNCTION AS WE'VE HEARD IN SOME CIRCLES THAT WE ARE TESTING MORE THAT'S PART OF THE REASON BUT THE OTHER BIG REASON IS WE ARE SEEING COMMUNITY TRANSMISSION, THE LOCAL OUTBREAKS LIKE ARIZONA THAT ARE CONCERNING, FLORIDA, TEXAS AND CALIFORNIA, OUR MOST POPULOUS STATES IT'S MUCH MORE THAN JUST MORE TESTING ONLINE

WE NEED AN APPROPRIATE RESPONSE OR THIS WILL BE YET ANOTHER OUT-OF- CONTROL SITUATION >> THE SPORTS WORLD HAS SEEN AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF CASES WITH MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL REPORTING 40 PLAYERS AND STAFF MEMBERS TESTING POSITIVE AND SEVERAL COLLEGE STUDENTS REPORTING NUMEROUS CASES THE IDEA OF TEAMS GETTING BACK TO ACTION BY PUTTING PLAYERS IN A BUBBLE AND STAFF IN A BUBBLE, IS THAT AN APPROACH THAT IS USABLE? >> I THINK EVERYBODY CAN CONSENT TO EXPOSURE AND IS WILLING TO GET EXPOSED THERE IS HERD IMMUNITY AMONG PLAYERS AND TEAMS, THAN THAT IS THE APPROACH BUT THIS NOTION THAT WE WILL SOMEHOW MINIMIZE TRANSMISSION AMONG PLAYERS IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO YOUR POINT, I THINK IT WORKS BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE TEND TO BE YOUNG BUT THERE IS OLDER MANAGERS, FOR EXAMPLE AND THEY GO BACK TO THEIR FAMILIES

I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU CAN'T JUST CREATE A BUBBLE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE THE PLAYERS WILL GO BACK TO THEIR FAMILIES AND IT COULD LEAD TO TRANSMISSION THERE IS NO WAY TO PREVENT THE EXPOSURES IF MLB COMES BACK ONLINE THE PHILLIES HAVE ALREADY CANCELED THEIR TRAINING IN CLEARWATER AND THE NBA IS ABOUT TO COME ONLINE, POTENTIALLY WITH A LOT MORE AND HARD DISCUSSIONS AND THE COMMISSIONERS WILL HAVE TO HAVE HARD DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WHAT THEY WILL AND WILL NOT TOLERATE

>>> PRESIDENT TRUMP MENTIONED THE POSSIBILITY OF SLOWING DOWN TESTING AT HIS RALLY ON THE WHITE HOUSE LATER SAID HE WAS JOKING THEY'VE ALSO SAID THEY ARE PREPARING FOR A NEW WAVE OF CASES IN THE FALL WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE BE DOING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM ANOTHER POTENTIAL WAVE? FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND, THE RESTAURANTS WERE PACKED WHERE I AM I HAVE TO TELL YOU, THERE AREN'T VERY MANY PEOPLE WEARING MASKS YESTERDAY, I SAW MAYBE ONE IN SIX AND THE RESTAURANTS WERE PACKED

>> THANK YOU FOR ASKING THAT QUESTION I FEEL LIKE A BROKEN RECORD SAYING THIS, BUT WE HAVE MORE DATA THAN WE DID TWO MONTHS AGO IF 90% OF PEOPLE WORE MASKS IN PUBLIC, IF YOU COULD NOT SOCIALLY DISTANCE, COVID- 19 WOULD BE GONE I'VE SEEN THE SAME THING, ONE IN SIX INDIVIDUALS PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR GRANDPARENTS AND MOM AND DAD

WEAR A MASK WE KNOW IT NOW WORKS BEFORE WE THOUGHT IT WORKED AND MADE SENSE BUT NOW WE KNOW IT WORKS ONLY ENGAGE IN PUBLIC IF YOU CAN BE IN AN OUTDOOR SETTING DO NOT GO INDOORS

WE THINK THAT IS A HUGE SUPER SPREADER EVENT IT'S VERY DIFFICULT AND THERE IS MORE DATA SUGGESTING THAT THERE ARE SUGGESTIONS FROM EXPERTS THAT COVID DOESN'T EXIST ON SURFACES AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HAND SANITIZING IF YOU ARE WATCHING THIS, SANITIZE YOUR HANDS OR WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY INFECTION CONTROL AT TOP OF MIND IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING AND I HOPE OUR GOVERNMENT WILL FOCUS ON CONTACT TRACING AND NOVEL THERAPEUTICS COMING ONLINE AND ACCELERATING THEIR DEVELOPMENT

>> DR VIN GUPTA, THANK YOU IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE ABOUT TO START YOUR SHIFT OR GETTING OFF YOUR SHIFT EITHER WAY, WE APPRECIATE YOU, BROTHER GARAGE

>> GOOD MORNING >> YOU LOOK ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS ALL RIGHT, LET'S DIG IN EARLIER THIS YEAR, CONDI NAST EDITOR, ANNA WINTOUR, SENT AN EMAIL TO APOLOGIZE TO BLACK STAFFERS FOR RACIAL EXCLUSION WITHIN THE COMPANY YOUR OP-ED WAS A RESPONSE TO THAT

WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU READ THE APOLOGY? >> PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING WHAT I FELT ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON AND TODAY, PEOPLE ARE TAKING A LOOK AT SYSTEMIC RACISM IN AMERICA WHEN I READ HER LETTER TO HER BLACK EMPLOYEES, I FELT IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO SPEAK OUT THAT'S WHAT I DID I WROTE AN OP-ED FOR THE WASHINGTON POST THERE WAS A WONDERFUL LADY I HAD SEEN ON TELEVISION AND I SAID, I WANT HER TO HELP ME WRITE THIS

THAT'S WHAT I DID I WROTE THE OP- ED AND I REALLY WANTED TO ADDRESS NOT JUST MORE MAKEUP ARTISANS AND HAIRSTYLISTS, BUT ACTUALLY, STRUCTURAL CHANGE I DIDN'T THINK OF IT BUT MY PARTNER SAID, DO YOU KNOW THE RUDY RULE IN NFL AND HOW THAT WORKS TO USHER IN BLACK COACHES? I THOUGHT, HOW WONDERFUL THAT WOULD BE, IF, IN THE BOARDROOM WHERE THE POLICIES AND STRATEGIES ARE MADE, THEY COULD DO A MANDATE OF THE BEVERLY JOHNSON RULE THEY WOULD INTERVIEW AT LEAST TWO BLACK PROFESSIONALS NOT JUST TO BE A MAKEUP ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER, THAT'S GREAT

BUT, TO GO WHERE POLICY IS SET AND THAT IS WITH THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS THEN, WE WILL IMPLEMENT THOSE STRATEGIES AND THE EXECUTIVES AND YOU GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS AND EDITORIAL POSITIONS THAT IS THE WAY TO UNDERSTAND AND REALIZE REAL, STRUCTURAL CHANGE >> WE REACHED OUT TO VOGUE FOR COMMENT AND I WANT TO SAY THAT THEY'VE GIVEN YOU A QUOTE AND RESPONDED AND SAID, AS EDITOR IN CHIEF OF VOGUE, THE DIRECTOR OF CONDI NAST, SHE'S BEEN A CHAMPION OF DIVERSITY PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE OVER THE YEARS BUT WE KNOW THERE IS MUCH MORE TO BE DONE AND CONDI NAST AND VOGUE ARE ACTIVELY WORKING ON NEW INITIATIVES TO ALLOW US TO BETTER LEAD ON ISSUES OF DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION ACROSS THE INDUSTRY

>> BEVERLY, YOU ARE SUCH A TRAILBLAZER FOR WOMEN IN FASHION AND BEAUTY, BLACK WOMEN, SPECIFICALLY YOU'VE TALKED ABOUT RACISM IN YOUR CAREER IN THAT INDUSTRY HOW SO? >> WELL, YOU KNOW, JUST IN THE WAY OF DISPARITIES AND EQUAL SALARIES AND BEING PAID THE SAME AS MY WHITE COLLEAGUES BUT, WHAT I REALLY WANT, NOW, WHICH I UNDERSTAND 50 YEARS LATER, IT'S REALLY HARD TO PUSH THE ROCK UP THE HILL YOU KNOW, POWER FLOWS DOWN

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT ANNA AND I ARE ON THE SAME PAGE AND IT'S WONDERFUL TO HEAR THAT IN ORDER TO NOT MAKE IT JUST LIP SERVICE, THERE HAS TO BE SOME KIND OF MANDATE WHERE THEY CAN BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE OR ACCOUNTABLE TO THEMSELVES OR WITH TRANSPARENCY TO ACTIVATE REAL, STRUCTURAL CHANGE I BELIEVE IT HAS TO COME FROM THE TOP DOWN >> I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW AT VOGUE AND ALL OF THE CEOs IN FASHION AND BEAUTY AND THE LEADING INDUSTRIES, THAT I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE BEVERLY JOHNSON RULE WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE

UNBELIEVABLE >> IT'S NOT ONLY TO ROBERTO THAT THIS CITY LOOKS UPSIDE DOWN DURING THE LOCKDOWN, VENICE APPEARED TO BE ABANDONED BUT LIFE IN THE LAGOON AND THE CANALS ARE THRIVING WITHIN A MONTH OF THE LOCKDOWN, THE WATER AROUND VENICE CLEARED UP SO MUCH WHEN BOAT TRAFFIC STOPPED, SO DID THE POLLUTION AND THE USUALLY MURKY CANALS SUDDENLY BECAME CRYSTAL CLEAR, SHOWING WHAT HAS LONG BEEN HIDDEN BELOW THE WATERLINE

THIS FISH IS NOT THE ONLY CLOSELY CREATURE THAT WANDERS AROUND VENICE BEFORE THE PANDEMIC, MORE THAN 10 MILLION TOURISTS FLOODED VENICE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR BECAUSE OF COVID- 19, THE CITY WENT FROM THIS TO THIS WITH TOURISTS GONE, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN LIVING MEMORY, THE RESIDENTS HAVE THE CITY TO THEMSELVES PER THE PROBLEM IS, THERE ARE NOT MANY OF THEM LEFT ABOUT 170,000 PEOPLE LIVED HERE IN THE 1960s AND THEN TOURISM LED TO A MASS EXODUS

TODAY, THE OFFICIAL POPULATION IS JUST OVER 52,000 YET, EVEN THEY ARE NOWHERE TO BE SEEN WHERE IS EVERYONE? IN A WAY, THE LOCKDOWN SHED SOME LIGHT ON THE ANSWER ALL IT TOOK TO MAKE OUT HOW MANY LOCALS LIVE IN VENICE AND HOW MANY HOUSES ARE RENTED OUT, WAS TO WALK AROUND AT NIGHT CORONAVIRUS TOOK THE SPOTLIGHT ON THE VENICE POPULATION AND ITS OVERDEPENDENCE ON TOURISM BUT ALSO GAVE A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR VENETIANS FOR SOME MUCH-NEEDED SELF REFLECTION

CORONAVIRUS, IN TURN, MADE EVERYONE LOOK LIKE ANYONE ELSE YET, VENICE IS NOT NEW TO QUARANTINE AS A MATTER FACT, IT INVENTED IT WHEN THE PLAGUE RAVAGED EUROPE IN THE 14th CENTURY, VENICE BECAME THE FIRST CITY TO ASK SHIPS AND SAILORS TO WAIT BEFORE LANDING, 14 DAYS IT TURNED AN ISLAND INTO A CEMETERY AND NEIGHBORHOODS AND TO FIELD HOSPITALS, MUCH LIKE TODAY

BACK THEN, THE RESPONSE TO THE PLAY WAS QUICKLY ADOPTED BY OTHER CITIES AND NATIONS ONCE AGAIN, VENICE AND THE REST OF THE WORLD ARE ON THE SAME BORDER THEY ARE IN THE BATTLE AGAINST CORONAVIRUS ROBERTO WILL TRIAL TO SALE THROUGH THE PANDEMIC AND NOT JUST THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM IT SEEMS PERFECT

IN FACT I WOULD NOTE THAT FIRST WE CONTINUED TO TEST 500,000 PER DAY $18 BILLION IS INVESTED TO FIND A NEW TESTING CAPABILITIES ANY SUGGESTING THAT HAS BEEN CURTAILED IS NOT ROOTED IN FACT I WOULD NOTE THE EXTRAORDINARY EFFORTS OF THIS ADMINISTRATION

267 MILLION TEST AND WE SHOULD SEE MORE THAN THAT >> THE PRESIDENT WAS TRYING TO EXPOSE WHAT THE MEDIUM DOES IS IGNORE THE FACT THAT THE UNITED STATES HAS MORE CASES BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE TESTING WE ARE LEADING THE WORLD WITH TESTING AND POINTING THAT OUT THAT THE MEDIA READILY IGNORES THAT >> THERE WAS A COMMENT HE MADE IN JEST

SPECIFICALLY WITH REGARD TO THE MEDIA COVERAGE AND POINTING OUT THE FACT THAT THE MEDIA NEVER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT WE ARE TESTING MORE PEOPLE TO FIND MORE CASES >> AND HE WAS NOT JOKING ABOUT CORONAVIRUS HE WAS JOKING ABOUT THE MEDIA >> WHAT ABOUT THE FEDERAL FUNDING FOR NATIONAL TESTING >> NO

>> WE ARE THE LEADING COUNTRY IN THE WORLD ON TESTING THE FDA HAS AUTHORIZED 144 TESTS UNDER EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION WE CAN DO 21 ANTIBODY TEST AND THE PRESIDENT HAS WANTED TO MAKE US THE WORLD LATER >> WHAT ABOUT $14 BILLION OF FUNDS THAT HAVE BEEN APPROVED BUT NOT YET ALLOCATED >> WE ARE RESTORING TESTING AND LEADING THE WORLD IN TESTING

WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO >> LAST YEAR DON CODE DECLARED HIMSELF THE LEAST [ INAUDIBLE ] WHY DOES HE USE RACIST PHRASES? >> WHAT HE DOES IS POINT TO THE FACT THAT THE ORIGIN OF THE VIRUS IS CHINA IT IS A FAIR THING TO POINT OUT AS CHINA TRIES TO METICULOUSLY REWRITE HISTORY WITH RIDICULOUS BLAME ON AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID NO I WILL LABEL THIS APPROPRIATELY

>> [ INAUDIBLE ] THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID CLEARLY IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROTECT THE ASIAN COMMUNITY AROUND THE WORLD THEY ARE AMAZING PEOPLE AND THE SPREADING OF THE VIRUS IS NOT THEIR FAULT THERE WORKING TO GET RID OF IT AND WE WILL PREVAIL TOGETHER IT IS NOT A DISCUSSION ABOUT ASIAN AMERICANS WHO THE PRESIDENT VALUES AND PRIZES IT IS CHINA WHO LET THE VIRUS GET HERE

I WILL ALSO POINT OUT THAT THE MEDIA BLAMED PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR USING THE CHINA VIRUS AND WUHAN VIRUS WHEN THEY HAVE USE THESE VERY TERMS I HAVE MORE THAN A DOZEN EXAMPLES HERE OF THAT >> [ INAUDIBLE ] I THINK THE MEDIA IS TRYING TO PLAY GAMES WITH THE TERMINOLOGY OF THE VIRUS WHEN THE FOCUS SHOULD BE THAT CHINA LET THIS OUT OF THEIR COUNTRY THE PRESIDENT USE THIS PHRASE BY THE MEDIA THE WUHAN VIRUS, WE CAN GO ON AND ON

WHILE THE MEDIA WANTS TO FOCUS ON [ INAUDIBLE ] THE PRESIDENT WILL FOCUS ON GETTING RID OF IT >> WHAT ABOUT VENTILATION AND [ INAUDIBLE ] CAN YOU CLARIFY WHY THIS WAS DISMISSED? >> I THINK THEY WERE VERY MUCH IN SYNC, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND THE PRESIDENT THE PRESIDENT HELD MR CLAYTON IN HIGH REGARD WANTING TO NOMINATE HIM TO THIS POSITION THEY WANTED TO KEEP HIM IN THE GOVERNMENT AND HAVE HIM RETURN TO WORK

WHEN HE RESPONDED THE WAY HE DID HE CAME TO THE PRESIDENT AND THE PRESIDENT AGREED AND FIRED THIS INDIVIDUAL AS MR CLAYTON NOW WILL GET THAT POSITION >> SO [ INAUDIBLE ] >> BECAUSE HE WANTED TO GO BACK TO NEW YORK CITY AND WE WANTED TO KEEP HIM IN GOVERNMENT SO HE WAS GIVEN THAT POSITION >> WHY DID THE PRESIDENT SAY HE WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THE FIRING THE PRESIDENT WAS THE ONE WHO FIRED HIM

>> THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS TAKING THE LEAD MR BERMAN DECIDED NOT TO LEAVE SO THE PRESIDENT AGREED WITH THE DECISION AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND FIRED MR BERMAN >> HE WAS INVOLVED IN A SIGN OFF CAPACITY

HE WAS NOT LEADING THE WAY >> MY SECOND QUESTION ON TESTING IS YOU SAID THE PRESIDENT MADE THAT COMMENT ABOUT HAVING PEOPLE [ INAUDIBLE ] THE VICE PRESIDENT SAID IT WAS MADE IN PASSING WHEN THE PRESIDENT [ INAUDIBLE ] HE DID NOT SAY HE WAS JOKING >> THE PRESIDENT SAID HE USED THAT OPPORTUNITY TO EXPOSE THE FACT THAT HE IS DONE 25 MILLION TEST WE ARE DOING MORE TESTING SO WE WILL FIND MORE PEOPLE

>> [ INAUDIBLE ] THE MEDIA IS NOT SPECIFICALLY A LIST THEY ARE USING A TERM THAT HAS NEVER BEEN USED THEY BUY THEY THEMSELVES >> I WILL GO THROUGH THIS ON FEBRUARY 9 YOU TALKED ABOUT THE WOODLAND CORONAVIRUS ON THE 23rd YOU DID THE SAME

YOU WANT ME TO LINED THIS ALL UP FOR YOU >> >> IT IS NOT THE SAME THING >> [ INAUDIBLE ] TALKING ABOUT AN EXPERIMENT OBVIOUSLY [ INAUDIBLE ] NOMINATED THE QUESTION IS WHY DO YOU THINK THEY TOOK THE ACTING U

S ATTORNEY OUT OF THIS JOB? >> THERE WILL BE AN INTERIM INDIVIDUAL, AND ACTING ATTORNEY AS WE WORK TO GET MR CLAYTON IN THAT POSITION >> OKAY SO WHY DIDN'T WE PUT HIM IN THAT POSITION? >> WE ARE HOPEFUL CLAYTON WILL BE CONFIRMED

NO INVESTIGATION WILL BE AFFECTED BY THIS AS THIS HAS BEEN CLEARED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL >> OKAY [ INAUDIBLE ] SINCE THE TRADE DEAL WAS SIGNED IN JANUARY [ INAUDIBLE ] I AM WONDERING WHEN THE PRESIDENT WILL [ INAUDIBLE ] >> I WILL GET AN UPDATE FOR YOU ON THAT WHAT I WILL SAY SO FAR IS THAT HE SIGNED LEGISLATION TO HOLD CHINA ACCOUNTABLE FOR MINORITIES AND HE HAS IMPROVED RESTRICTIONS [ INAUDIBLE ] HE HAS TAKEN STRONG ACTION I WILL GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT

>> THE PRESIDENT WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE RALLY I WAS WITH HIM THERE WERE MEDIA REPORTS THAT HE WAS SOMEHOW FURIOUS THAT IS NOT GROUNDED IN FACT I WAS WITH HIM ON THE WATHERE AND I WAS WITH HIM AFTER

HE WAS VERY PLEASED WITH HOW THE RALLY WENT AND THE MEDIA REPORTED ON THIS PROMPTED ME TO GO AROUND AND ASKED MY COLLEAGUES IF THEY SAW SOMETHING DIFFERENT THEY SAID HE WAS VERY ENERGIZED HAVING BEEN AROUND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HE IS PLEASED WITH HOW THE RALLY WENT EVEN A POLITICAL PUNDIT WROTE TO HIM THAT IT WAS ONE OF THE ALL- TIME GREAT SPEECHES HE HAD EVER HEARD WE EXPOSED HIM TO HUMANITY NO ONE COULD HAVE MISSED THIS

IT WAS GREAT TO BE OUT OF THE SWAMP AND IN THE COUNTRY THAT IS HOW THE PRESIDENT FEELS AS WELL >> DOES HE WENT TO HAVE MORE EVENTS? >> I WOULD HAVE TO REFER YOU TO THE CAMPAIGN FOR THAT >> THANK YOU SO MUCH >> WHO IS THE MOST SENIOR PERSON FOCUSED FULL-TIME ON COVID-19 WITH NO OTHER DUTIES? JUST CORONAVIRUS

WHO IS THAT PERSON AND WHAT KIND OF AUTHORITY DOES THAT PERSON HAVE TO SPEND RESOURCES >> WE ARE GOOD AT DOING TWO THINGS AT ONCE THE VICE PRESIDENT IS CONTINUING TO LEAD THE TASK FORCE THEY MEET REGULARLY WE HAVE DOCTORS THERE AND THEY ARE TALKING TO GOVERNORS

THE PRESIDENT IS BRIEFED ABOUT THE STATE OF THE CORONAVIRUS >> SO WHO IS FOCUSED ON THIS FULL TIME? >> A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE >> GIVE ME ONE PERSON >> ALL OF OUR EXPERTS ARE INVOLVED AND THE VICE PRESIDENT WE DO MANY THINGS AT ONCE IN THIS ADMINISTRATION

WE ARE PLEASED TO SEE, IT IS A TRAGEDY ANYTIME A LIFE IS LOST BUT WE WERE PLEASED TO SEE THAT YESTERDAY THEY WERE UNDER 300 FATALITIES WE ARE TRENDING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WE ARE AWARE WHEN THINGS RISE AND WE ARE EQUIPPED TO GO IN AND HANDLE THIS WE COULD HAVE LOST 3 MILLION LIVES WE LOST FAR FEWER BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK ACTION EARLIER >> [ INAUDIBLE ] DOES THE PRESIDENT REGRET CALLING THIS THE CHINESE FLU? JUST LIKE IT WAS CALLED THE WUHAN VIRUS? >> HE NEVER REGRETS PUTTING THE ONUS BACK ON CHINA

THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS US TROOPS ARE BEING BLAMED BY CHINA >> [ INAUDIBLE ] INTERESTED IN MEETING WITH HIM? >> I'M GLAD YOU ASKED THAT QUESTION

THE PRESIDENT TWEETED TODAY ABOUT THE RADICAL LEFT I WILL STAND WITH THOSE WHO ARE ON THE SIDE OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY NOTHING HAS CHANGE HE CONTINUED TO RECOGNIZE HIM AS THE LEADER OF VENEZUELA >> SO [ INAUDIBLE ] JOHN BOLTON HAS DISCREDITED HIM SELF ON MANY ITEMS EXPOSING LIES AND THE MEDIA SEEMS TO HAVE TAKEN NOTE ON HOW METICULOUS SOME OF THE THINGS HE SAID, THE REVIEWS THAT HIS BOOK IS GOTTEN AND IT HAS BEEN RIGHT ON WITH THE MEDIA THEY SAID IT IS EXCEEDINGLY TEDIOUS

THE NEW YORKER SAID HE TAKES AN INFLATED VIEW OF HIMSELF AND WAS TO BLAME EVERYBODY ELSE FOR EVERYTHING >> THEY TALKED ABOUT FLAWS THEY HAVE ALL COME OUT AND SAID IT IS FULL OF MISTRUTHS AND CERTAINLY ABOUT THE PRESIDENT >> [ INAUDIBLE ] I WANT TO GO BACK

WAS MICHAEL: FIRED BECAUSE HE WAS OVERSEEING THIS INVESTIGATION? >> NO HE WAS KNOT >> [ INAUDIBLE ] THE ADMINISTRATION HAS OUTLINED THE REASON IT IS BECAUSE MR CLAYTON WILL BE MOVED INTO THAT ROLE

>> IT IS A LITTLE CONCERNING >> THAT IS A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT YOU ARE ASKING THE FATALITY NUMBERS ARE COMING DOWN I WOULD ALSO POINT OUT THAT DR BURKE HAD A HIGHER NUMBER OF CASES AND THEY ARE LESS SEVERE CASES

BECAUSE OF OUR WORK WITH TESTING WE CAN IDENTIFY CASES IN THE COMMUNITY BEFORE THEY DEVELOP SYMPTOMS AND ARE HOSPITALIZED SO WE ARE SEEING THESE IN THE COMMUNITY AND WE HANDLE THESE AS SOON AS WE SEE THEM >> OKAY THE PRESIDENT [ INAUDIBLE ] THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY HE SAID [ INAUDIBLE ] I WOULD KNOW THAT WHAT WE ARE SEEING ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS REALLY QUITE CONFUSING

YOU ARE SEEING STATUES DEFACED LIKE GANDHI'S STATUE AND ULYSSES S GRANT ABOLITIONIST AT THE SAME TIME WE ARE BEING TOLD THAT THE WASHINGTON STATUE NEEDS TO COME DOWN WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE? GANDHI TO GEORGE WASHINGTON IT SEEMS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT ON THIS

I'M NOT BRINGING DOWN ANY STATUE ONE THIRD OR FEWER THINK THE STATUE SHOULD BE TAKEN DOWN 51% OPPOSE IT >> I POINT THAT OUT I SAY THAT WHEN PEOPLE WATCH THESE STATUES BEING DEFACED AND BEHEADING OF THE STATUE LIKE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS, WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE

APPARENTLY THE LINE GOES ALL THE WAY TO GANDHI >> GOING BACK TO THE KUNG FU, THEY SAID IT WAS ATTENTIVE AND WRONG NOW HE IS SAYING THAT'S NOT HOW HE MEANT IT >> THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT BELIEVE THIS CAME FROM CHINA HE WAS TO STAND UP FOR THE MILITARY

>> ARE YOU SAYING HE WAS WRONG TO SAY THAT? >> NO >> DOES THE ADMINISTRATION FEEL THAT PUBLIC SERVANTS SHOULD RALLY FOR THESE PURSES BUSINESSES? >> ABSOLUTELY WITH THE INFORMATION, IT WAS CLASSIFIED INFORMATION YOU HAVE THE NSA DIRECTOR SAYING THIS COULD COST PERMANENT LOSS OF INVALUABLE RESOURCES RADCLIFFE SAID ABOUT THE SAME

OR ANOTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL SAID THIS GOOD ENABLE FOREIGN THREATS THIS IS THE SERIOUSNESS WITH WHICH WE LOOK AT THIS BOOK AND THE NFC LOOKS AT THIS BOOK THERE IS REAL DAMAGE THAT CAN BE DONE FOR WHAT, SELF- PROMOTION? >> THE WHITE HOUSE, HAVE THEY LOST CONFIDENCE >> NO I ALSO NOTICE HOW TOUGH THIS PRESIDENT HAS BEEN

COMPARE THAT TO OBAMA AND BIDEN YOU HAD THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT, JOE BIDEN WHO MET WITH THE DICTATOR AND COMPLEMENTED HIS HAIR IF I HAD YOUR HAIR I WOULD BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HE SAID ALSO, THE STATE DEPARTMENT HELPED STABILIZE THE REGIME BY BLOCKING SANCTIONS WHEN YOU COMPARE THE ACTIONS OF THIS PRESIDENT ALONG THE SIDE OF FREEDOM AND FINALLY IT ONE THING I WANTED TO POINT OUT THAT 77 MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS TUNED INTO FOX NEWS TO WATCH THE RALLY SATURDAY NIGHT

YOU'RE GOING SEE SOME OF THOSE WORKERS THE MAYOR WAS TALKING ABOUT I'M IN THE HEART OF TIMES SQUARE I'M GOING TO PAN OVER TO 42nd STREET THIS IS CERTAINLY NOTHING LIKE PREPANDEMIC NEW YORK, BUT IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE THAT SORT OF POST-APOCALYPTIC VIBE EVEN JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO THERE ARE SOME SIGNS OF LIFE, PEOPLE WALKING AROUND, HEADING TO WORK, TAKING SOME PICTURES

NOT A LOT OF TOURISTS LIKE WE NORMALLY SEE BUT REALLY REVIVING THE PULSE OF THE CITY IS GOING TO DEPEND ON THE HEART OF IT, THE NEW YORK SUBWAY THE RIDERS PLUMMETED MORE THAN 90% DURING THE PEAK OF THE PANDEMIC OFFICIALS TELL ME THE NUMBER IS CREEPING UP AS PEOPLE ARE GETTING BACK TO WORK NOW IT IS HOVERING AROUND A MILLION

>> IT FEELS A LITTLE MORE LIKE NEW YORK CITY MAY BE ON A SUNDAY IN THE SUMMER, WHEN IT'S QUIET, BUT NOT COMPLETELY ABANDONED I KNOW YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE SUBWAY THERE THAT IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE CITY COMING BACK AND I UNDERSTAND NEW YORKERS' CONCERN ABOUT BEING NERVOUS THE SYSTEM SHUTTING DOWN EVER DAY IF 1:00 A

M TO 5:00 AM FOR A DEEP CLEANING WHAT ELSE IS THE MTA PLANNING TO DO TO KEEP RIDERS SAFE AND SECURE? >> THEY'RE DOING A LOT, ALISON

THEY'RE MAKING THEM AVAILABLE THEY'RE MAKING HAND SANITIZER FREELY AVAILABLE THERE ARE PUMPS ALL OVER THE PLACE THEY'RE TESTING ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT TO TEST NEW WAYS TO MAKE SURE THE SUBWAY IS AS CLEAN AS POSSIBLE

I CAN ATTEST, WHEN I TAKE THE SUBWAY, IT IS MUCH CLEANER THAN I'VE EVER SEEN IT BUT I SPOKE TO THE HEAD OF THE MTA HERE ABOUT SYSTEM OF THE MEASURES BEING PUT INTO PLACE TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAID >> UNIVERSAL MASK WEARING ON SUBWAY PLATFORMS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO THE DISTANCING ALSO HELPS

THEY'LL WORK ON THE EXCHANGE, THE NEW FILTERS, A COMBINATION OF THINGS IT'S ABOUT SOCIAL EFFORTS THE MASK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING >> THE ONE THING THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO ENFORCE IS THE SOCIAL DISTANCING THERE ARE JUST SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE CITY DURING THOSE PEAK HOURS, IT WILL BE TOUGH TO MAINTAIN THAT THAT'S WHY THEY'RE EMPHASIZEING THE MASK >> ON A TYPICAL DAY, YOU'RE LUCKY TO GET 6 INCHES, FORGET ABOUT 6 FEET

I YOU'VE SPENT TIME ON THE SUBWAY YOU SPENT A DAY TALKING TO COMMUTEERS WHAT ELSE DID THEY TELL YOU? WHAT ELSE ARE THEY WORRIED ABOUT? >> THE 7 TRAIN STARTS IN QUEENS, AND THE 7 TAKES A LOT OF WORKERS HERE INTO MID- TOWN PLANT TO WORK AT THE RESTAURANTS AND BUSINESSES HERE AND THE PEOPLE I'VE BEEN TALKING TO, THEY WERE MOSTLY HEADED TO WORK, AND THEY WERE APPREHENDSIVE THEY WERE NERVOUS, WEARING THEIR MASKS, GLOVES

THEY ALL HAD THEIR STRATEGY FOR HOW TO KEEP THEMSELVES SAFE ON THE SUBWAY I SAW A LOT OF PEOPLE AVOIDING TOUCHING ANY SURFACES THEY WERE DOING THE SUBWAY SURFING SITUATION THE MOST COMMON REFRAIN I HEARD IS THAT IT MIGHT BE NERVE WRECKING THOSE PEOPLE EXCITED TO GET BACK TO WORK, TO SEE NEW YORK START TO GET BACK ON TRACK

>> IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT I DON'T CARE ABOUT TOUCHING EVERYTHING I HOLD THE POLE, TOUCH THE RAILINGS, EVERYTHING, SOMETHING DEFINITELY IN THE ERA OF COVID- 19 I'M GOING TO HAVE TO RETHINK >> DIFFICULT THESE DAYS THANK YOU, ALISON

>>> CORONAVIRUS HOSPITALIZATIONS WERE ON THE RISE IN 14 DIFFERENT STATES FLORIDA HAS OVER 100,000 CORONAVIRUS INFECTIONS, AND IN TEXAS ALONE, MORE THAN 3,400 PEOPLE ARE IN THE HOSPITAL NOW ''NBC NEWS" CAN'T MORGAN CHESKY JOINING ME FROM DALLAS HOSPITALIZATIONS UP IN THE PAST WEEK WHAT ARE LEADERS DOING ABOUT THAT? >> THEY'RE DOING AS MUCH AS THEY CAN

WE KNOW MAYORS OF NINE TEXAS CITIES HAVE ALREADY LOBBIED GOVERNOR GREG ABBOT, TRYING TO GET MORE REINFORCEMENT, MORE POWER, POLICIES TO PUT IN PLACE DUE TO THIS RECENT SURGE THIS ISN'T JUST TEXAS OR FLORIDA, BUT ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY WE HAVE A GRAPH SHOWING THE ROLLING AVERAGE OF NEW CASES THAT ARE IMPACTING THE ENTIRE COUNTRY NOW IF YOU LOOK AT THIS GRAPHIC, ONE THING YOU'LL NOTICE IS IT RISES BEFORE DIPPING DOWN THROUGH THE MAY AND JUNE YOU'RE STARTING TO SEE THAT TELL- TALE SIGN OF IT STARTING TO TICK BACK UP

THAT IS WHAT HAS A LOT OF PEOPLE CONCERNED NOW ONE OF THE THINGS LEADERS ARE DOING IS ENACTING THIS NEW POLICY BUSINESS LEADERS HAVE TO MAKE SURE CUSTOMERS WHO WALK THROUGH THE DOOR HAVE A FACE COVERING ON THE CITY IS NOW SAYING, "NO WE'RE TAKING A STANCE NOW IN ORDER TO CONTAIN THE SPREAD

" AS WE SPEAK, GOVERNOR GREG ABBOT ADDRESSING THE STATE HE SHOULD BE PUTTING OUT MORE GUIDANCE, TRYING TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS >> WHERE ARE SOME OF THE HOT SPOTS ACROSS TEXAS? AND DO OFFICIALS KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON IN THOSE AREAS >> WE KNOW CONTACT TRACERS ARE HARD AT WORK, ALISON AS FAR AS HERE IN TEXAS, SAN ANTONIO AND AUSTIN, WITHIN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS NAMED TWO OF ITS TOP FIVE HOT SPOTS IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, AND THAT'S DISCONCERTING FOR A LOT OF AREAS

THAT'S WHY THEY'RE PRESSING FOR MORE ENFORCEMENT THEY'RE TRYING TO KEEP THOSE NUMBERS DOWN THE TEXAS ALCOHOL BEVERAGE COMMISSION IS WHAT THEY'RE DOING OPERATION SAFE OPEN THAT'S WHERE IT'S KIND OF LIKE A VISIT TO BARS, RESTAURANTS, OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS THE MAKERS ARE ABIDING BY THE RULES PUT IN PLACE TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE

BARS HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN, SPECIFICALLY IN AUSTIN, BECAUSE THEY HAVE VIDEOS SURFACED OF MASSIVE CROWDS INSIDE, DISREGARDING THE RULES IN PLACE THERE WERE PARTIES OUTSIDE AT THE LAKE, RIVER, GRADUATION ACTIVITIES, ALL PARTIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR SEEING A SURGE IN CASES >> I KNOW YOU'RE TRACKING WHAT'S GOING ON IN FLORIDA, THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS THERE NEARLY DOUBLED FROM JUNE 7th TO THE 14th

WHAT DID GOVERNOR RAN DeSANTIS SAY ABOUT THAT? >> Reporter: GOVERNOR RON DeSANTIS FOR WEEKS, IF NOT MONTHS NOW, HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CORRELATE ANY RISE IN CASES IN FLORIDA DUE TO THE INCREASE IN TESTING THIS GRAPH IS WHAT FLORIDA HAS EXPERIENCED OVER THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS CAN'T ARGUE WITH THE NUMBERS HERE WHEN YOU SEE THAT DRASTIC SPIKE GO UP OF THOSE CASES GOVERNOR DeSANTIS RECENTLY MAKING A STARTLING IMAGE, SAYING IT'S NOT JUST THE INCREASED TESTING THAT'S RESULTING IN THIS LATEST SURGE THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO IT

MORE PATIENTS THAT ARE YOUNGER ARE SOME OF THOSE HARD-HIT BY THE VIRUS IN THE MOST RECENT WEEKS THAT'S WHY THE GOVERNOR SAYS WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS TRY TO CREATE SOME STRICTER POLICIES, SPECIFICALLY IN BARS, RESTAURANTS, ET CETERA THAT WOULD IMPLEMENT SOCIAL DISTANCING, BECAUSE AS HE'S SEEING THOSE YOUNGER PATIENTS SHOW UP, THEY'RE TRYING TO GO TO WHERE THEY ARE TO PUT THOSE RULES IN PLACE TO LIMIT THE SPREAD THERE, BECAUSE IN FLORIDA ALONE, WE'RE SEEING A THOUSAND NEW CASE AS DAY FOR THE LAST 13 DAYS SIGNIFICANT >> YEAH, REALLY SOMETHING ELSE MORGAN CHESKY, THANK YOU SO MUCH

>> THANK YOU >> THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS REPORTING THE LARGEST SINGLE- DAY INCREASE IN COVID-19 INFECTIONS OVER THE WEEKEND MORE THAN 183,000 NEW CASES, MOST OF THEM IN BRAZIL AND THE UNITED STATES NBC NEWS MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT JOHN TORES JOINS ME NOW WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THIS PANDEMIC FOR MONTHS NOW

EVERYONE IS ASKING, WHAT IS CAUSING THIS RISE IN CASES >> WE'VE BEEN FIGHTING THIS THING SINCE JUNE EVERYBODY IS SAYING, "WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?" BECAUSE WE THOUGHT WE WERE GETTING IT UNDER CONTROL CASES ARE GOING UP IN THE COUNTRY MORE SO, IT IS WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

BRAZIL IN PARTICULAR, THEY'RE REALLY BATTLING CORONAVIRUS RIGHT NOW THEY ARE WHERE WE WERE A FEW MONTHS AGO THIS IS NOT UNEXPECTED, BECAUSE WE KNOW THE VIRUS ACTS LIKE SOME OTHER CORONAVIRUSES, WHERE THE COLD WEATHER SEEMS TO ACCELERATE IT AND THOUGH IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE WARMER THAN OUR WINTER, STILL THEIR WINTER TIME FRAME IT'S CIRCULATING DOWN THERE THE CONCERN IS WHAT WILL IT HAPPEN WHEN IT STOPS CIRCULATING SO MUCH DOWN THERE, IT STARTS MOVING UP HERE TO THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE AND OUR COOLER WEATHER, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN THIS FIRST WAVE UNDER CONTROL THAT'S PROBABLY THE BIG CONCERN RIGHT NOW >> I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE SECOND WAVE IN A MOMENT LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE U

S NOW TWENTY-SIX STATES HAVE SEEN AN UP TICK IN CASES OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE SPIKE IN OUR COUNTRY? >> WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE SPIKES IS SOMETHING YOU AND I HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT ONCE THINGS REOPEN, YOU WILL SEE A SPIKE IN CASES

THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THE SPECK DON'T TURN INTO OUTBREAKS THAT'S WHY YOU'RE HEARING THESE GOVERNORS START TO TAKE MEASURES, SAYING, "WE MIGHT MANDATE MASKS WE MIGHT MANDATE CERTAIN THINGS IN BARS AND RESTAURANTS, BECAUSE WE'RE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT COULD HAPPEN THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO" WHAT YOU'RE SEEING HAPPEN IS PLACES HAVE OPENED UP EARLY, QUICKLY THEY HAVEN'T PUT A LOT OF EMPHASIS ON THE THINGS THAT HELP, THE MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING

PLACES OPEN UP A LITTLE SLOWER, MORE OF A GENTLE OPENING, THOSE CASES AREN'T SPIKING AS MUCH WHAT YOU'LL FIND OVER THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO IS THINGS BEING MANDATED, BECAUSE PEOPLE AREN'T DOING WHAT WE KNOW WORKS, THE MASKS AND THE DISTANCING THE GOVERNOR IS SAYING WE NEED YOU TO DO THAT, BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONE THING THAT WILL KEEP US UNDER CONTROL, ALISON >> MORE PEOPLE ARE TESTING POSITIVE IN SOME OF THESE NEW HOT DO WE KNOW WHY IT IS, AND HOW CONCERNED ARE YOU ABOUT THAT? >> IT SEEMS LIKE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE TESTING, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO THE HOT SPOTS, THE BARS, NOT WEARING MASKS, NOT SOCIALLY DISTANCING

THOSE OLDER, 65 AND ABOVE WITH PREEXISTING CONDITIONS THEY'RE TELLING PEOPLE TO BE VERY CAREFUL, ESPECIALLY IN HOT SPOT AREAS THEY'RE THE ONES STAYING HOME THE YOUNGER ONES GOING OUT, IF THEY GET IT, THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW THEY HAVE IT, AND THEY CAN SPREAD IT TO THE ONES THAT ARE MORE VULNERABLE AND THAT'S THE BIG CAUTION HERE, ALISON

I WANT TO PLAY A CLIP FROM "MEET THE PRESS" YESTERDAY HERE'S DR MICHAEL OLSTERHAUM HE IS AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE EXPERT

>> THIS IS MORE LIKE A FOREST FIRE I DON'T THINK THIS WILL SLOW DOWN RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE A LOT OF SUSCEPTIBLE PEOPLE I THINK, RIGHT NOW, I DON'T SEE THIS SLOWING DOWN INTO THE SUMMER OR FALL

I DON'T THINK WE'LL SEE ONE, TWO, THREE WAVES I THINK WE'RE GOING TO SEE ONE DIFFICULT FOREST FIRE OF CASES >> SO, DR JOHN, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT THEORY? >> I THINK WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT, IF SUMMER BACK IN THE FEBRUARY TIME FRAME, WE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEING A COLD- WEATHER VIRUS IT SHOULD GET BETTER IN THE SUMMER

IT'S NOT GOING AWAY LIKE WE THOUGHT IT WOULD PART OF THE REASON IS HUMAN BEHAVIOR WE'RE SEEING THIS CROP OF NEW CASES THE PROBLEM IS, IF THAT FIRST WAVE DOESN'T GET UNDER CONTROL AND THE SECOND WAVE STARTS HAPPENING, YOU CAN GET THE TWO WAVES COINCIDING

IT COINCIDES INTO A BIGGER WAVE IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT KEEPS PERPETUATING SO IT MIGHT NOT BE THAT WE GET THAT RESPITE IN BETWEEN THIS IS NOT UNAVOIDABLE THIS IS JUST THE DIRECTION THINGS ARE GOING

WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO WE JUST NEED TO DO IT THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE >> DOCTOR, BEFORE I LET YOU GO, LOOK, WE SAY IT ALL THE TIME WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE BE DOING? WHAT CAN WE DO TO IN ANY WAY JUST TRY TO KEEP THESE WAVES AS LIMITED AS POSSIBLE, KEEP OURSELVES AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE? >> EVERYBODY SHOULD DO THIS

WEAR MASKS, SOCIAL-DISTANCE AT 6 FEET DON'T GATHER IN LARK CRUISE THAT'S WHAT WILL KEEP IT WILL UNDER CONTROL >> GREAT TO SEE YOU THANKS FOR BEING WITH US >> YOU BET

>>> MEDICAL STAFF WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK TO TREAT CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS WITH CASES SPIKING ACROSS THE COUNTRY HERE ARE THEIR STORIES FROM THE FRONT LINE >> WHAT ARE WE SEEING TODAY, REALLY THIS WEEK? IT IS AN INCREASE IN COVID-19, HOSPITALIZATIONS, SYMPTOMS, POSITIVE TESTS WE'RE DEFINITELY GOING UP THE CURVE IN CHARLOTTE, WE'RE PAST THE PHASE TO REOPEN, WHICH WAS MAY 22nd

>> OUR NUMBERS ARE RISING OUR NUMBERS OF PATIENTS REQUIRING OXYGEN AS WELL AS THOSE REQUIRING LIFE SUPPORT IS RISING IT'S VERY OVERWHELMING IT'S VERY TIRING I WORRY ABOUT MY FRIENDS, MY FAMILY, MY PATIENTS

>> I CAN'T BRING MYSELF TO DO IT I DON'T WANT TO LOOK WE'VE BEEN HEARING STORIES ABOUT THE SURGE IN ARIZONA YEAH, IT WAS, EVEN KNOWING GOING IN, IT WOULD BE WORSE I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS

>> THREE-AND-A- HALF MONTHS AGO, WE SAW THIS PATIENT IN HER 20S, STRUCK LING TO BREATHE, AND SHE WAS STRUGGLING REALLY HARD TO BREATHE WITH ALL THE OXYGEN WE COULD GIVE HER >> WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS I WOULD EXPECT A FURTHER UP TICK OVER THE ENSUING FEW WEEKS PROBABLY SICKER PATIENTS, AND MORE OF THEM BEING HOSPITALIZED AND SIMPLEMATIC >> I FEEL SO REENERGIZED OR REJUVENATED BY PARTNERS, MY FRIENDS, MY FAMILY AND STAFF, WHO HAVE BEEN SUPPORTIVE DURING THIS TIME

TODAY I RECEIVED A THANK YOU NOTE FROM ONE OF MY PATIENTS JUST INVIGORATED THE DAY, MADE ME FEEL LIKE I CAN GO ON FOREVER I WAS SO HONORED TO HELP THESE PATIENTS, SO LUCKY TO HAVE A THIS PROFESSION, SO THANKFUL TO KEEP YOU SAFE >>> YOU'RE WATCHING "NBC NEWS NOW" >> ARIZONA IS DEALING WITH A NEW COVID-19 SPIKE, THE NUMBER OF CASES DOUBLING OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS, NOW TOPPING 52,000

NBC NEWS POLITICAL REPORTER VAUGHN HILLIARD JOINS ME NOW ARIZONA IS NOW A CORONAVIRUS HOT SPOT WHAT ARE YOU SEEING THERE? >> Reporter: THIS IS WHERE THE PRESIDENT WAS FLYING INTO, ALISON TOMORROW MORNING, HE WILL FLY AIR FORCE THAT'S THE YUMA REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER, THE MAJOR HOSPITAL IN THE AREA

WHEN YOU LOOK OUT, YOU CAN SEE THAT MOUNTAIN RANGE OVER THERE THAT'S ACTUALLY CALIFORNIA, ALISON JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THAT, THAT ENTIRE AREA THAT WAY, THIS WOULD BE THE COUNTRY OF MEXICO WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THIS AREA, WE LIKE TO CALL IT GREATER YUMA AREA IT'S A VERY RURAL PART OF THE STATE AND PART OF CALIFORNIA

AND WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN IS THIS BECOME A HOT SPOT THE QUESTION IS, TO WHAT EXTENT WILL THE PRESIDENT ADDRESS THIS? HERE AT THE Y,MA REGIONAL MEDICAL FACILITY, THERE ARE CURRENTLY 120 COVID- POSTPATIENTS THIS FACILITY HAS ALSO HAD TO SEND A GREAT NUMBER OF FOLKS TO OTHER HOSPITALS, PARTICULARLY OUT IN TUCSON, BECAUSE THEY ARE STRAPPED WITHIN THEIR FACILITY, PARTICULARLY ON STAFFING, IN TERMS OF HAVING NURSES AND THE CAPACITY TO SERVE THESE COVID PATIENTS ALSO HERE AT THE FACILITY, THEY'VE CHOSEN TO END THEIR ELECTIVE SURGERIES THIS WEEK BECAUSE OF THESE RISES IN CASES, ALISON >> SO, VAUGHN, LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT TRAMPLINGS DECISION TO COME TO ARIZONA, PARTICULARLY YUMA WHILE THAT AREA IS STRUGGLING TO KEEP ONE THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK THERE? >> Reporter: IT'S AN INTERESTING DECISION BY THIS PRESIDENT, BUT IT'S ONE IN WHICH — WE ARE FIVE MONTHS AWAY FROM THIS GENERAL ELECTION AND THE POLITICS, BY ALL ACCOUNTS, NEEDS TO WIN ARIZONA YOU'RE SEEING HIM IN YUMA TOMORROW MORNING, BUT BACK UP TO PHOENIX FOR A STUDENTS FOR TRUMP CONVENTION TOMORROW AFTERNOON JUST IN THE LAST 15 DAYS, THE NUMBER OF CASES HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED IN JUST THE LAST 15 DAYS THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TESTING CAPACITY IN ORDER TO PROCESS THE DEMAND OF TESTS

THERE ARE ICU FACILITIES AT CAPACITY, AND THERE ARE REAL QUESTION MARKS ABOUT WHAT THAT RESPONSE IS IN YUMA, THAT'S REQUIRED IN THE CITY OF PHOENIX, MASK WEARING IS ALSO REQUIRED IT'S 109 DEGREES HERE TODAY IN YUMA, BUT THESE ARE THE STEPS NOW UNDERWAY TO TRY TO STOP THE SPREAD, BECAUSE THERE IS NO INDICATION OF THE NUMBERS GOING IN A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY >>> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEING CRITICIZED FOR THIS REMARK ABOUT CORONAVIRUS TESTING AT HIS TULSA RALLY

HERE IT IS >> WHEN YOU DO TESTING TO THAT EXTENT, YOU'RE GOING TO FIND MORE PEOPLE YOU'RE GOING TO FIND MORE CASES SO I SAID TO MY PEOPLE, "SLOW THE TESTING DOWN, PLEASE" >> VAUGHN, THE WHITE HOUSE SAID THE PRESIDENT WAS JOKING, BUT TESTING IS A BIG CONCERN IN ARIZONA

YOU SPOKE WITH THE MAYOR OF YUMA ABOUT TESTING WHAT DID HE TELL YOU >> THE MAYOR, THE REPUBLICAN MAYOR TOLD ME JUST A BIT AGO, HE SAID THAT TESTING IS CRUCIAL HERE, TO UNDERSTAND THE EBB AND FLOW, TO UNDERSTAND WHERE IT IS COMING FROM AGAIN, WE ARE DEALING WITH MEXICO AND CALIFORNIA AND THIS AREA WHEN YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MAJOR HOSPITAL, THAT MAKES THE EMPHASIS ON JUST THIS ONE FACILITY THAT MUCH MORE — MORE TOUGH

YOU KNOW, THE PRESIDENT — YOU KNOW, THERE'S A SUGGESTION HE WAS MAYBE JOKING, BUT IN A LOCAL INTERVIEW THIS MORNING, HE WAS ASKED DIRECTLY WHETHER HE ASKED FOR TESTING TO SLOW DOWN, AND HE DIDN'T GIVE A RESPONSE, A DIRECT DENIAL HERE IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA, THERE IS TESTING THAT IS NEEDED I WENT THROUGH THIS MYSELF AT THE FIRST PLACE I WENT, THERE WAS A FIVE-AND-A-HALF HOUR WAIT THE NEXT PLACE, THEY SAID THE TURN AROUND WOULD BE 10 DAYS

THE NEXT FACILITY, THERE WERE NO PTR TESTS, JUST ABOUT BODY TESTS THE NEXT I WENT TO SAID IT WOULD BE 7 TO 10 DAYS NONE OF THE LOCATIONS OVER THE WEEKEND HAD ANY APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY SO THAT IDEA AT ONE POINT THAT ANYBODY WHO WANTS A TEST CAN GET IT IS NOT TRUE I HAVE TALKED TO ONE OF THE MAJOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS, URGENT CARE PROVIDERS, AND HE SAID IT WAS ESSENTIALLY PUSHING THE BLAME ON THE TESTING LABORATORY IN THE STATE

I ASKED WHY THE WAIT? HE SAID THEY ARE URGENT CARE FACILITIES THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH PROFESSIONALS ON STAFF TO PROCESS THAT DEMAND THIS IS WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS COMING INTO ONE MORE POINT, HERE IN YUMA, THERE IS ONE WOMAN WHO IS THE FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH

CLINICS AROUND THE AREA ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 85% OF THE TESTS THAT HAPPEN IN YUMA COUNTY TEAM MEMBERS JUST TESTED POSITIVE SO TO SUGGEST EVERYTHING IS SO ROSY HERE IN YUMA AND ARIZONA IS EVIDENCE THERE IS STILL A LONG WAY TO GO >> THE PRESIDENT'S RALLY TOMORROW IS AT A MEGA CHURCH DO WE KNOW WHAT TURN OUT THE CAMPAIGN IS EXPECTING AND WHAT SORT OF SAFETY REQUIREMENTS THERE WILL BE? FOR EXAMPLE, WILL PEOPLE HAVE TO WEAR MASKS? >> Reporter: THAT'S THE BIG QUESTION MARK

THIS IS A SEVERAL-THOUSAND- CAPACITY CHURCH IN NORTH PHOENIX THE CITY PUT IN A RESPONSE TO THE MASK REQUIREMENT THIS GROUP IS GOING TO BE PASSING OUT MASKS AND URGING FOLKS TO WEAR MASKS BUT OBVIOUSLY YOU'VE SEEN THIS PRESIDENT TURN HIS OWN HEAD TOWARD MASK WEARING

THERE ARE QUESTIONS THE CITY SAID THEY'RE ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO WEAR MASKS FINES CAN GO UP TO $250 JUST IN THE LAST HOUR, ALISON, THE CHURCH THAT IS HOSTING THAT ORGANIZATION AND THE PRESIDENT TOMORROW, DREAM CITY CHURCH, THEY JUST POSTED A VIDEO ON THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE, TELLING EVERYBODY THAT IT WAS FINE, AND THEY'RE PROTECTED TO COME IN, BECAUSE THEY JUST INSTALLED WHAT THEY'RE CALLING NEW IONIZATION EQUIPMENT THAT THEY CLAIM WILL CALL OFF 999% OF THE COVID VIRUS IN THEIR FACILITY WITHIN 10 MINUTES

OF COURSE, THERE IS NO SUCH EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT THAT SCIENCE IS REAL, BUT THAT IS THE MESSAGE COMING FROM THAT NORTH PHOENIX CHURCH TODAY TO ALL THE FOLKS THAT ARE COMING TO SEE THE PRESIDENT TOMORROW, THAT THEY HAVE NEW EQUIPMENT THAT WILL KILL 999% OF COVID VIRUS SO AT LEAST THE REDS OF THE CHURCH, THE PASTOR OF THE CHURCH, THAT'S THEIR VIEW OF COVID AT THIS MOMENT >> ALL RIGHT VAUGHN HILLIARD, I AM IMPRESSED WITH YOUR REPORTING ALWAYS, BUT NEVER MORE THAN ON A DAY LIKE TODAY, WHERE YOU ARE OUTSIDE IN 109 DEGREES, WEARING A MASK, COOL AS A CUCUMBER

THANK YOU SO MUCH >> THANKS, MY FRIEND I APPRECIATE IT >>> TIK TOK USERS AND K POP FANS ARE TAKING CREDIT FOR THE LOW TURN OUT AT PRESIDENT TRUMP'S RALLY OVER THE WEEKEND THOUSANDS OF THEM REGISTERED FOR TICKETS WITH NO PLANS TO SHOW UP

PRESIDENT TRUMP CLAIMED HE HAD MORE THAN A MILLION RSVP, BUT THE ARENA DIDN'T REACH ITS CAPACITY HERES IS A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED >> SHE WAS GOING TO REGISTER FOR TRUMP'S RALLY SHE DOES THIS EVERY CYCLE SHE REGISTERS FOR A RALLY SHE DOESN'T GO TO

THERE ARE CONTENT CREATORS ON TIK TOK TALKING ABOUT JUNETEENTH, AND THE FACT THAT TULSA WAS KIND OF A HURTFUL CHOICE >> I RECOMMEND THAT ALL OF US WHO WANT TO SEE THE 19,000 COMPLETELY EMPTY, GET TICKETS NOW >> THE VIDEO BLEW UP I HAD A THOUSAND FOLLOWERS ON THURSDAY NIGHT

BY 7:00 FRIDAY MORNING, I HAD 3,000 VIDEOS, SHARED THOUSANDS OF TIMES IT'S JUST BLOWN UP FROM THERE THERE ARE ALSO K POP FANS AND OTHERS ON TWITTER WHO HAD HAD THE SAME IDEA, OR SOME OF THEM WENT OFF OUR IDEA, AND WERE DOING IT OVER THERE IT SORT OF MERGED

>> GUYS, DONALD TRUMP IS HAVING A RALLY NEXT WEEK, AND IT'S FREE >> I JUST VERIFIED IT SO THAT MEANS THERE'S GOING TO BE THESE TWO EMPTY SPOTS >> IF THEY BAN TOGETHER, THEY CAN MAKE SURE THEIR VOICES ARE HEARD IT'S A REALLY POWERFUL WAY WE'LL GET NOTICED

SO THE EFFORT IS TO GET THEM ALL REGISTERED TO VOTE SO THAT'S THE NEXT BIG QUESTION >>> CULTURAL REPORTER CALVIN ROSENBLACK JOINS ME >> IT'S GREAT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN RELEASED A STATEMENT SAYING TROLLS ARE DOING A VICTORY LAP

IN YOUR REPORTING, WHAT KIND OF IMPACT DID YOU SEE THESE TIK TOK USERS HAVING? >> WE DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT THE IMPACT IS FROM THE TIK TOK USERS WE DON'T NECESSARILY THEY CAUSED ANY LACK OF ATTENDANCE, BUT WE THINK THEY INFLATED THE NUMBERS, THE EXPECTATIONS OF HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE GOING TO SHOW UP >> THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME K POP FINANCIALS HAVE DONE SOMETHING LIKE THIS IT IS AN ELECTION YEAR SOCIAL MEDIA IS A POWERFUL TOOL

WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING THEM TO DO? WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING THEM TO DO AS THEY MOVE CLOSER TO NOVEMBER? >> IT'S HARD TO PREDICT THE FUTURE, AND WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO DO WHENEVER YOU'RE IN A DIGITAL SPACE, YOU'RE ON THEIR TERMS SOMETHING SOME PEOPLE SAID TO ME IS, WHEN THEY'RE YOUNG, AND EVEN BEFORE THEY'RE OF THE AGE OF VOTING, THEY CAN FEEL HELPLESS, A LITTLE BIT LIKE THEY DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF SAY IN POLITICS, THE GOVERNMENT, OR WHAT THE PRESIDENT DOES IT'S KIND OF THEM MAKING THEIR VOICES HEARD

I THINK, AS WE HEAD INTO NOVEMBER, WE'RE GOING TO SEE A LOT MORE OF THESE TEAMS HANDING TOGETHER >> WE'LL HAVE YOU BACK TO TALK ABOUT IT THANK YOU SO MUCH >> THANKS FOR HAVING ME >>> CONGRESS IS GEARING UP FOR A BUSY WEEK ON CAPITOL HILL

TOMORROW THERE IS A CONFIRMATION VOTE ON THE PRESIDENT'S PICK FOR JUDGE WE'LL HEAR FROM WHISTLEBLOWERS ABOUT INTERFERENCE IN THE DEPARTMENT AND ON FRIDAY, LOOK FOR A HOUSE VOTE ON STATEWOOD CORRESPONDENT GARRETT HAGUE IS JOINING ME NOW FROM CAPITAL HILL YOU HAVE A JAMPACKED WEEK AHEAD

LET'S START WITH THE PROPOSALS HOW FAR APART ARE THEY THIS WEEK? >> THERE IS SIGNIFICANT DISTANCE APART, AND WHETHER THAT GETS RESOLVED QUICKLY OR OVER A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME IS THE HANGING QUESTION THIS WEEK SENATE DEMOCRATS AND HOUSE DEMOCRATS FOR THAT MATTER DON'T THINK THE SENATE REPUBLICAN BILL GOES NEARLY FAR ENOUGH IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING CLOSE TO WHAT THE HOUSE BILL DOES IT DOESN'T BAN CHOKE HOLDS, NO- KNOCK WARRANTS AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL

DEMOCRATS THINK IT'S A BAD BILL THEY HAVE A HARD DECISION TO MAKE DO THEY BLOCK IT ON THE VERY FRONT END, BRING IT TO THE FLOOR ON WEDNESDAY, OR DO THEY LET IT COME TO THE FLOOR AND TRY TO AMEND IT, TRY TO MAKE IT BETTER? THAT'S PROBABLY THE SINGLE BIGGEST QUESTION MARK, IS WHAT DO DEMOCRATS DECIDE TO DO? THEY'RE MEETING TO DISCUSS IT THERE SEEMS TO BE DIVISION AMONG SENATORS SOME SAY THEY WANT TO TRY TO MOVE FORWARD

OTHERS SAY THIS BILL DOESN'T COME CLOSE ENOUGH WE'LL TRY THIS AGAIN NEXT YEAR >> GARRETT, LET'S TALK ABOUT US

ATTORNEY'S JEFFREY BURMAN FIRING HE DENIED ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR'S ANNOUNCEMENT WILL CONGRESS HEAR FROM BURMAN? >> I SUSPECT IN THE LONG TERM THEY WILL JERRY NADLER WAS ASKED ABOUT THAT OVER THE WEEKEND THEY HAVEN'T GONE SO FAR AS TO SUBPOENA HIM

THEY HAVEN'T FORMALLY REQUESTED HIS ATTENDANCE YET, ALTHOUGH THEY MAY BE NEGOTIATING WITH HIM PRIVATELY SOMETIMES THAT'S THE CASE BUT THE REALITITY IS THIS NOMINATION FOR HIS REPLACEMENT PROBABLY WON'T MOVE FORWARD UNTIL CONGRESS IS SATISFIED WITH WHAT HAPPENED BACK ON THE SENATE SIDE, WHERE I THEY'LL HAVE TO CONFIRM THE REPLACEMENT, THE CHAIRMAN SAID HE IS NOT GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH A BLUE SLIP PROCESS BASICALLY, HE'S GOING TO LET THE DEMOCRATIC SENATORS PUT A VETO ON ANYBODY THEY DON'T LIKE IN THAT ROLE, AT LEAST FOR NOW UNTIL THERE'S A BETTER ANSWER ABOUT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED HERE

SO, YOU KNOW, PUT A PIN IN IT SO WE'RE GOING TO BE FOLLOWING THIS STORY FOR QUITE A WHILE, I THINK >> YEAH WE'LL BE CHECKING BACK IN WITH YOU ON THAT ONE FOR SURE ALSO TOMORROW, THERE ARE PRIMARIES IN KENTUCKY AND NEW YORK

WHAT SHOULD WE BE WATCHING FOR? >> THESE ARE INTERESTING SO THE PRIMARY IN KENTUCKY IS FOR WHICH DEMOCRAT HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE ON MITCH McCONNELL IN THE FALL THAT'S BEEN A CLOSELY WATCHED RACE FOR LONG TIME BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY, VERY CHALLENGING ONE FOR WHOEVER WINS IT, JUST BECAUSE PERFORM IS EXPECTED TO DO SO WELL NIT MITCH McCONNELL'S ELECTORAL STRATEGY IS SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT, HE DOESN'T CARE IF HE'S THE SECOND MOST POPULAR PERSON IN KENTUCKY

THE MOST UNPOPULAR PERSON IS WHOEVER HE'S RUNNING AGAINST LOOK FOR WHOEVER COMES OUT OF THAT PRIMARY TO HAVE A FAST-FORWARD THE ORE PRIMARY I'M WATCHING IS IN NEW YORK STATE THIS IS THE RACE TO TAKE ON — THIS IS ACTUALLY THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY RACE PROBABLY GOING TO BE THE NEXT REPRESENTATIVE OF NEW YORK'S 16th DISTRICT

THAT'S ELLIE EVENING THE HE IS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE HE HAS BEEN IN CONGRESS FOR 40 YEARS IF THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR, THIS IS LIKE THE SAME MESSAGE THAT HELPED AOC WIN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CITY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, AND HIS CHALLENGER HAS REALLY CAPTURED THE PROGRESSIVE BASE IN THAT DISTRICT

THAT'S A BIG RACE TO WATCH HERE IF ENGEL GOES DOWN, IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF PROGRESSIVE REVENGE UP IN NEW YORK STATE >> THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON AT CAPITOL HILL I KNOW YOU HAVE A VERY BUSY WEEK AHEAD THANKS FOR BEING WITH US TODAY

REVIVING THE PULSE OF THE CITY AND IT DEPENDS ON THE HEART OF IT WHICH IS THIS RIGHT HERE, THE NEW YORK SUBWAY 56 MILLION DAILY RIDERS WITH MORE THAN 90% DURING THE PEAK OF THE PANDEMIC THE NUMBER IS CREEPING UP WITH PEOPLE GETTING BACK TO WORK AND THEY SAY NOW IT'S HOVERING AROUND 1 MILLION A DAY WITH A FRACTION OF THE USUAL THE SIGNS OF AN UPTICK >> IT'S AMAZING WHEN YOU SHOW THAT AND IT FEELS A LITTLE BIT MORE LIKE NEW YORK CITY ON A SUNDAY IN THE SUMMER, QUIET BUT NOT COMPLETELY ABANDON

AND THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SUBWAY AND IT IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE CITY COMING BACK AND I UNDERSTAND NEW YORKERS CONCERNED ABOUT BEING NERVOUS GETTING BACK ON THE TRAIN IT SHUTTING DOWN EVERY DAY FOR DEEP CLEANING BUT WHAT ELSE ARE THEY PLANNING TO DO TO KEEP RIDERS SAFE AND SECURE? >> THEY ARE DOING A LOT AND ARE OFFERING MASKS MANDATORY AND 90% OF THE RIDERS, THEY ARE MAKING THE HAND SANITIZER AVAILABLE IN OUR PUMPS ALL OVER THE PLACE AND THERE ARE SOCIAL DISTANCING MARKERS ON THE PLATFORM AND THEY ARE DISINFECTING AND TESTING ULTRAVIOLET LIGHTS AND ALL KINDS OF NEW WAYS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE SUBWAY IS THE CLEANEST POSSIBLE IT IS MUCH CLEANER THAN I'VE EVER SEEN IT WITH A LOT OF THE TRANSIT NEW YORK WITH SPILLS AND MYSTERIOUS SUBSTANCES BUT I SPOKE WITH THE HEAD HERE OF SOME OF THE MEASURES THEY ARE PUTTING IN PLACE >> THE UNIVERSAL MASK WEARING, SUBWAY PLATFORMS, SUBWAY CARS AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO WITH MULTIPLE ROUNDS, TO WORK ON THE AIR EXCHANGE AND MASS TRANSIT AND IT IS ABOUT SOCIAL DISTANCING

WE'VE GOT EIGHT TOWELS ON THE PLATFORM AND MESSAGES TO THE RIDERS BUT THE MASK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING >> Reporter: THE ONE THING RIDERS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT, THEY ARE NOT REALLY GOING TO BE ABLE TO ENFORCE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND THE REALITY IS THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE CITY AND DURING THE PEAK RIDERSHIP HOURS IT WILL BE TOUGH TO MAINTAIN THE SIX FEET AND THAT'S WHY THEY ARE EMPHASIZING THE MASK >> ON A TYPICAL DAY YOU'RE LUCKY TO GET SIX INCHES , FORGET ABOUT SIX FEET I KNOW YOU SPENT TIME ON THE SUBWAY TALKING TO COMMUTERS, WHAT ELSE ARE THEY WORRIED ABOUT?>> Reporter: WE TOOK THE 7 TRAIN AND IT TAKES A LOT OF WORKERS INTO MIDTOWN MANHATTAN AND THE PEOPLE I WAS TALKING TO, THEY WERE APPREHENSIVE THERE WERE WEARING THEIR MASKS AND GLOVES AND ALL HAD A STRATEGY

I SAW A LOT OF PEOPLE AVOIDING TOUCHING ANY SURFACES WHICH MEANT THEY WERE DOING THE SUBWAY SURFING BUT THE MOST COMMON THING I HEARD IS IT MIGHT BE NERVE-RACKING BUT IT IS NECESSARY AND THE PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME WERE REALLY EXCITED TO EARN A PAYCHECK AND SEE NEW YORK START TO GET BACK ON TRACK >> IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS HAVE TO THINK ABOUT I'M SUCH AN I DON'T CARE ABOUT TOUCHING EVERYTHING NEW YORKER, I TOUCH THE POLE AND THE RAILINGS AND EVERYTHING AND IT'S DEFINITELY SOMETHING I WILL HAVE TO RETHINK THANK YOU, SO MUCH >> CORONAVIRUS HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE ON THE RISE IN 14 DIFFERENT STATES

HERE IN DALLAS, ONE OF THE THINGS THE LEADERS ARE DOING ON THEIR OWN IS ENACTING THE POLICY WHERE BUSINESS LEADERS HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE THAT WALK IN THE FRONT DOOR HAVE A FACE COVERING AND WEARS BEFORE IT WAS LEFT UP TO THE DISCRETION OF THE BUSINESS OWNER BUT THE CITY SAYS WE ARE TAKING A STANCE IN ORDER TO TRY TO CONTAIN THE SPREAD AND WE ARE GOING TO DO WHATEVER WE CAN AND AS WE SPEAK THE GOVERNOR IS ADDRESSING THE STATE RIGHT NOW AND HE SHOULD BE PUTTING OUT GUIDANCE ON WHAT THE STATE IS DOING TO TRY TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS >> WHERE ARE SOME OF THE HOTSPOTS ACROSS TEXAS AND TWO OFFICIALS KNOW SPECIFICALLY WHAT IS GOING ON IN THOSE AREAS? >> CONTACT TRACERS ARE HARD AT WORK AND HERE IN TEXAS, SAN ANTONIO AND AUSTIN, THEY HAVE BEEN TWO OF THE TOP HOTSPOTS IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY AND THAT IS DISCONCERTING FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THOSE AREAS AND THAT'S ONE OF THE REASON THE MAYORS ARE PRESSING THE GOVERNOR FOR MORE ENFORCEMENT TO KEEP THE NUMBERS DOWN THE TEXAS ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE COMMISSION IS DOING WHAT THEY ARE CALLING OPERATION SAFE OPEN AND THAT IS WHERE IT SAID VISIT IMPROMPTU TO BARS, RESTAURANTS AND OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE ABIDING BY THE RULES WE KNOW RIGHT NOW AT LEAST A DOZEN BARS HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN SPECIFICALLY AND AUSTIN BECAUSE THEY HAD VIDEO SURFACE OF MASSIVE CROWDS INSIDE DISREGARDING THE RULES THAT WERE PUT IN PLACE SO THE PERMITS HAVE BEEN PULLED BUT HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE GOING FARTHER SANE AS THE TEMPERATURES ARE STARTING TO HEAT BACKUP, PARTIES OUTSIDE, GRADUATION FESTIVITIES ARE ALL PARTIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR SEEN A SURGE IN CASES >> YOU ARE TRACKING WHAT'S GOING ON IN FLORIDA AS WELL WITH THE PURSUIT — THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE HAS DOUBLED AND HOW IS THE GOVERNOR HANDLING THIS LATEST FIGHT? >> THE GOVERNOR FOR WEEKS IF NOT MONTHS HAS BEEN TRYING TO CORRELATE ANY RISING CASES IN FLORIDA DUE TO THE INCREASED TESTING WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE TO AVOID IT I WANT TO SHOW YOU A GRAPH, THIS IS BASICALLY WHAT THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED AND YOU CANNOT ARGUE WITH THE NUMBERS WHEN YOU SEE THE DRASTIC SPIKE GO UP OF THE CASES

THE GOVERNOR RECENTLY MAKING A STARTLING PIPIT SAYING THAT IT'S NOT JUST THE INCREASE TESTING THAT'S RESULTING IN THE LATEST SURGE AND THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO IT AND HE IS IDENTIFYING MORE PATIENTS THAT ARE YOUNGER ARE SOME OF THOSE HARD-HIT BY THE VIRUS IN THE MOST RECENT WEEKS THAT IS WHY THE GOVERNOR SAYS WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO, WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS CREATE STRICTER POLICIES SPECIFICALLY IN BARS, RESTAURANTS THAT WOULD IMPLEMENT SOCIAL DISTANCING BECAUSE AS HE IS SEEING THE YOUNGER PATIENTS SHOW UP, THEY ARE TRYING TO GO TO WHERE THEY ARE IN ORDER TO PUT THE RULES IN PLACE AND TRY TO LIMIT THE SPREAD BECAUSE IN FLORIDA ALONE WERE LOOKING AT THE STATE THAT HAS SEEN 1000 NEW CASES A DAY FOR THE LAST 13 DAYS >> THANK YOU, SO MUCH >>> THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION REPORTING THE LARGEST SINGLE DAY INCREASE IN COVID-19 INCREASES AND MORE THAN 183,000 NEW CASES AND MOST OF THEM IN BRAZIL AND UNITED STATES THE MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT JOINING ME NOW

WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THIS PANDEMIC FOR MONTHS EVERYONE IS ASKING WHAT IS CAUSING THE GLOBAL RISE IN CASES? >> WE HAVE BEEN PLAYING THIS SINCE JANUARY OR FEBRUARY AND NOW PEOPLE ARE SAYING WHAT'S GOING ON WE THOUGHT WE WERE GETTING IT UNDER CONTROL BUT THE CASES SEEM TO BE GOING UP AND THAT IS ADDING TO SOME OF THE CASES BUT EVEN MORE SO IN THE SUM SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE IN BRAZIL IN PARTICULAR THEY ARE BATTLING CORONAVIRUS AND ARE WHERE WE WERE A FEW MONTHS AGO AND IT IS NOT UNEXPECTED WE KNOW THE VIRUS ACTS LIKE OTHER CORONAVIRUSES WHERE THE COLD WEATHER SEEMS TO ACCELERATE IT AND THEY ARE IN THEIR WINTER RIGHT NOW

THEIR WINTER TIMEFRAME AND SO IT IS CIRCULATING DOWN THEY ARE AND THE CONCERN IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN IT'S STOPS CIRCULATING AND STARTS MOVING BACK UP TO THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE ESPECIALLY IF WE HAVE NOT GOTTEN THE FIRST WAVE OF UNDER CONTROL AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE SECOND WAVE AND THAT IS PROBABLY THE BIG CONCERN >> I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE SECOND WAVE IN A MOMENT BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE US RIGHT NOW WITH 26 STATES THAT HAVE SEEN AN UPTICK IN CASES WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW? >> WITH IS HAPPENING WITH THE SPIKES, ONCE THINGS START REOPENING YOU WILL SEE SPIKES IN CASES AND THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT TURN TO OUTBREAKS

WE ARE GETTING RIGHT ON ADS AND THAT'S WHY YOU HEAR THE GOVERNOR START TO TAKE MEASURES SANE WE MIGHT MANDATE MASKS OR CERTAIN THINGS IN BARS AND RESTAURANTS BECAUSE THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN OVER THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO AND WHAT YOU SEE HAPPENING IS PLACES THAT HAVE OPENED UP EARLY AND QUICKLY AND DID NOT PUT A LOT OF EMPHASIS ON THE MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING, THAT IS WHEN WE START TO SEE THE SPIKES OF CASES AND THOSE THAT OPENED UP SLOWER, THOSE CASES HAVE NOT SPIKED QUITE AS MUCH YOU WILL FIND WITH MORE THINGS BEING MANDATED BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE NOT DOING WHAT WE KNOW WORKS, MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING AND THE GOVERNMENT IS SAYING WE NEED YOU TO DO THAT BECAUSE IT WILL KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL >> MORE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE TESTING POSITIVE AND SOME OF THE NEW HOTSPOTS WE KNOW WHY THAT IS AND HOW CONCERNED ARE YOU? >> THEY ARE TESTING POSITIVE BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES GOING OUT AND ARE GOING TO THE RESTAURANTS AND BARS AND NOT NECESSARILY WEARING MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING THOSE THAT ARE OLDER WITH PREVIOUS MEDICAL CONDITIONS THEY HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL ESPECIALLY THE ONES IN HOTSPOT AREAS THEY ARE THE ONES STAYING HOME AND THE CONCERN IS THE YOUNGER ONES GOING OUT, IF THEY GET IT THEY MAY NOT KNOW THEY HAVE IT AND THEY COULD SPREAD IT TO THOSE THAT ARE MORE VULNERABLE AND THAT IS TO BE CAUTION

PEOPLE ARE GETTING TO THE PRE-PANDEMIC LEVEL OF THINKING , I DON'T NEED MASKS OR SOCIAL DISTANCING AND BECAUSE OF THAT WE SEE THE CASES AND IF THE FIRST WAVE DOES NOT GET UNDER CONTROL AND THE SECOND WAVE STARTS HAPPENING YOU WILL GET TWO WAVES COINCIDING AND THEN WE GET AN EVEN BIGGER WAVE, EITHER A WAVE OR FOREST FIRE AND IT JUST KEEPS ON PERPETUATING SO IT MAY NOT BE THAT WE GET THAT RESPITE IN BETWEEN BUT A SMALLER SECOND WAVE AND THEY MAY COME IN TOGETHER THAT THIS IS NOT UNAVOIDABLE IT'S A DIRECTION THINGS ARE GOING AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO WE JUST NEED TO DO IT >> BEFORE I LET YOU GO, WE SAY IT ALL THE TIME BUT WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE BE DOING AND WHAT CAN WE DO AND IS THERE ANY WAY WE CAN KEEP THIS AS LIMITED AS POSSIBLE AND KEEP OURSELVES SAFE? >> WEAR A MASK, SOCIAL DISTANCE AT SIX FEET AND NOT GATHER IN LARGE CROWDS AND THAT IS THE MAIN THING YOU CAN DO TO HELP KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL >> ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE YOU

TO THE SOUTH OF THAT THAT ENTIRE AREA WOULD BE THE COUNTRY OF MEXICO WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THIS AREA HERE, IT'S A VERY RURAL PART OF THE STATE AND PART OF CALIFORNIA AND IT HAS BECOME A HOTSPOT AND TO WHAT EXTENT WILL THE PRESIDENT ADDRESS THIS WE ARE ASKING THE MEDICAL FACILITY CURRENTLY 120 COVID POSITIVE PATIENTS IN THE FACILITY HAS ALSO HAD TO SEND A GREAT NUMBER OF FOLKS TO OTHER HOSPITALS PARTICULARLY IN TUCSON BECAUSE THEY ARE STRAPPED WITHIN THEIR FACILITY PARTICULARLY ON STAFFING IN TERMS OF HAVING NURSES AND THE CAPACITY TO SERVE THE PATIENT'S ALSO HERE THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO END ELECTIVE SURGERIES BECAUSE OF THE RISES IN CASES

>> WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN DECISION TO COME TO ARIZONA, PARTICULARLY YUMA WHILE THE AREA STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP WITH CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAKS? >> Reporter: IT'S AN INTERESTING DECISION BUT IT IS ONE IN WHICH WE ARE FIVE MONTHS AWAY FROM THE GENERAL ELECTION AND THE PRESIDENT BY ALL ACCOUNTS NEEDS TO WIN ARIZONA THAT'S WHY WE SAW HIM HERE ONE MONTH AGO AND YOU SEE HIM IN YUMA TOMORROW MORNING THEN ALSO BACK UP IN PHOENIX FOR A CONVENTION TOMORROW AFTERNOON JUST IN THE LAST 15 DAYS THE NUMBER OF CASES IN ARIZONA HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED IN JUST THE LAST 15 DAYS WE HAVE SEEN THE NUMBERS SPIKE AND SURGE AND FRANKLY THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TESTING CAPACITY IN ORDER TO PROCESS THE DEMANDS OF TESTS THE ICU FACILITY IS AT CAPACITY AND THERE ARE REAL QUESTION MARKS ABOUT WHAT THE COVID RESPONSE HERE IS IN YUMA WITH MASKS NOW RETIRED

IN THE CITY OF PHOENIX, MASK WEARING IS ALSO REQUIRED IT IS 109 DEGREES HERE TODAY BUT THESE ARE THE STEPS IN LATE JUNE THAT ARE NOW UNDERWAY IN ORDER TO TRY TO STOP THE SPREAD BECAUSE THERE IS NO INDICATION OF THE NUMBERS GOING DOWNWARD >> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEING CRITICIZED ABOUT HIS REMARKS ABOUT CORONAVIRUS TESTING >> WHEN YOU DO TESTING TO THAT EXTENT YOU WILL FIND MORE PEOPLE IN CASES SO I SAID TO MY PEOPLE, SLOW THE TESTING DOWN, PLEASE >> THE WHITE HOUSE LATER SAID THE PRESIDENT WAS JOKING BUT ACCESS TO TESTING IS A BIG CONCERN AND YOU SPOKE WITH THE MAYOR ABOUT TESTING WHAT ARE THEY TELLING YOU AND WAS THEIR REACTION ON THE PRESIDENT'S COMMENTS? >> THE REPUBLICAN MAYOR TOLD ME THAT TESTING IS CRUCIAL TO UNDERSTAND THE EBB AND FLOW AND TO UNDERSTAND WHERE IT'S COMING FROM

WE ARE DEALING WITH MEXICO AND CALIFORNIA AND THIS AREA AND WHEN YOU HAVE ONLY ONE MAJOR HOSPITAL, IT MAKES THE EMPHASIS ON JUST THIS ONE FACILITY THAT MUCH MORE TOUGH IN THE LOCAL NEWS INTERVIEW THIS MORNING THE PRESIDENT WAS ASKED DIRECTLY WHETHER HE ACTUALLY ASKED FOR TESTING TO SLOW DOWN AND HE DID NOT GIVE A RESPONSE OR DIRECT DENIAL HERE IN ARIZONA THERE IS TESTING THAT IS NEEDED I WENT THROUGH THIS MYSELF THIS WEEKEND AND AT THE FIRST PLACE I WENT TO THERE WAS A 55 HOUR WAIT

AND THE NEXT PLACE THE TURNAROUND WOULD BE 10 TO 12 DAYS THE NEXT PLACE I WENT TO TOLD ME THERE WAS NO COVID TEST JUST ANTIBODY TESTS THE NEXT FACILITY SAID IT WOULD BE 7 TO 10 DAYS NONE OF THE LOCATIONS ACROSS THE GREATER VALLEY OVER THE WEEKEND HAVE ANY AVAILABILITY THE IDEA AT ONE POINT IS IF ANYONE WANTS A TEST THAT THEY CAN GET IT AND IT IS NOT TRUE

I HAVE TALKED WITH PROVIDERS AND ONE OF THE MAJOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS AND HE SAID THAT IT WAS ESSENTIALLY PUSHING THE BLAME ON THE TESTING LABORATORIES SAYING THAT IT IS THE RESPONSE TIME THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE AND THE MACHINES TO PROCESS ENOUGH TESTS AND I ASKED WHY THE WEIGHT? HE SAID THE URGENT CARE FACILITIES DO NOT HAVE THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ON STAFF TO PROCESS THE DEMAND THIS IS WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS COMING INTO AND ONE MORE POINT IN YUMA, THERE IS ONE WOMAN WHO IS THE FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH WHEN IT COMES TO TESTING AND SHE WANTS FIVE DIFFERENT CLINICS AND ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 85% OF THE TEST THAT IT HAPPENED IN YUMA COUNTY AND RIGHT NOW SHE HAS COVID SYMPTOMS AND SIX OF HER TEAM MEMBERS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID AND SHE IS OUT OF THE GAME SO TO SUGGEST THAT EVERYTHING IS ROSY AND DANDY AND TESTING IS AVAILABLE HERE IN YUMA AND ARIZONA IS EVIDENT THAT THERE IS STILL A LONG WAYS TO GO >> THE PRESIDENT'S RALLY IN PHOENIX TOMORROW IS THAT A MEGA CHURCH

OF COURSE THERE IS NO SUCH EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT THAT SCIENCE IS REAL BUT THAT IS THE MESSAGE COMING FROM THE CHURCH TODAY TO ALL THE FOLKS THAT ARE COMING TO SEE THE PRESIDENT TOMORROW THAT THEY HAVE NEW EQUIPMENT THAT WILL KILL 999% OF COVID VIRUS AT LEAST THE PASTOR OF THE CHURCH, THAT IS THEIR VIEW OF COVID >> I AM IMPRESSED WITH YOUR REPORTING ALWAYS IT NEVER MORE THAN ON A DAY LIKE TODAY WHERE YOUR OUTSIDE IN 109 DEGREES WEARING A MASK, COOL AS A CUCUMBER THANK YOU, SO MUCH

>> THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THE FANS HAVE DONE SOMETHING LIKE THIS IT IS AN ELECTION YEAR AND SOCIAL MEDIA IS A POWERFUL TOOL WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING TO SEE AS WE MOVE CLOSER TO NOVEMBER? >> IT'S HARD TO PREDICT THE FUTURE AND WHERE THEY WILL GO BUT WHEN YOU'RE ON THE DIGITAL SPACER ON THEIR TURF SOME YOUNG PEOPLE SAID, WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG AND EVEN BEFORE THE AGE OF VOTING THEY CAN FEEL HELPLESS AND A LITTLE BIT LIKE YOU DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF SAME POLITICS OR GOVERNMENT OR WHAT THE PRESIDENT DOES AND WHEN THEY GO ONLINE WITH THIS MISCHIEF IT IS MAKING THEIR VOICES HEARD AS WE HEAD INTO NOVEMBER WE WILL SEE A LOT MORE MISCHIEF HAPPENING AND A LOT MORE OF THESE USERS BANDING TOGETHER >> NO DOUBT WE WILL HAVE YOU BACK TO TALK

>> HOW MUCH DOES NEW YORK CITY'S REOPENING DEPEND ON THE ABILITY TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THEY CAN AND SHOULD TAKE THE SUBWAY >> WE'RE ACUTELY AWARE OF THE RESPONSIBILITY WE HAVE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN THE ECONOMY >>> WE CAUGHT UP WITH COMMUTERS ON THE 7 TRAIN

IT WAS ONE OF THE HOT SPOTS FOR THE CORONAVIRUS, BUT NOW LONG LINES DEVELOPING TO GET THEIR CARDS THERE ARINGSES HERE, AND SOME MARKERS TO SHOW SOCIAL DISTANCING A PRETTY BIG CROWD HERE >> Reporter: SOME COMMUTERS SAY THEY'RE TAKING PRECAUTIONS OTHERS FILLED WITH FEAR

M FOR DISINFECTING, MAKING DISINFECTING AND MASKS FREELY AVAILABLE ONCE YOU'RE ON THE TRAIN, THE RECOMMENDATION IS, TRY NOT TO TOUCH MANY SURFACES CAN YOU REALLY ENFORCE SOCIAL DISTANCING, ESPECIALLY DURING THOSE PEAK RIDERSHIP HOURS? >> WE'VE BEEN VERY CANDID WITH OUR RIDERS

THE STANDARD IS 6 FEET IF YOU ARE CLOSER, YOU'VE GOT TO WEAR A MASK WE'RE NOT PROMISING OUR CUSTOMERS SOCIAL DISTANCE ON SUBWAYS AS THEY GET CROWDED >> Reporter: TWO WEEKS INTO NEW YORK'S REOPENING, RIDERSHIP IS UP TO AROUND A MILLION A DAY FOR MANY COMMUTERS, THIS NEW NORMAL IS NERVE-WRACKING, BUT NECESSARY

DOCTOR, HOW DOES THE MTA PLAN TO KEEP ITS RIDERS SAFE? >> >> THEY ARE TRYING TO DISPERSE THOSE CROWDS THEY'RE ALSO TALKING TO BUSINESSES, TRYING TO GET THEM TO STAGGER HOURS FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES

THEY ARE SPREADING RUSH HOUR OUT OVER MORE OF THE DAY AND, OF COURSE, ASKING COMMUTERS THEMSELVES TO DO WHAT THEY CAN TO PROTECT THEMSELVES IT REALLY SOUNDS LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE AN EFFORT ON THE PART OF CITY OFFICIALS, BUSINESSES, AND COMMUTERS THEMSELVES TO MAKE THE SUBWAY SAFER >> AS WE MENTIONED, THE CITY NOW IN PHASE TWO OF ITS REOPENING WHAT IS PART OF PHASE TWO >> Reporter: THE REASON THE SUBWAY IS MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN EVER IS BECAUSE THE BUSINESSES ARE GETTING TO OPEN THEIR DOORS

RETAIL STORES STORES CAN OPEN UP HAIR SALONS AND BARBERSHOPS CAN OPEN AS WELL EVERYONE OFFICES CAN BEGIN TO OPEN UP BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A LOT OF OFFICES ARE GOING TO CONTINUE SOME FORM OF REMOTE WORK FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE THIS IS NOT ANYTHING LIKE PREPANDEMIC NEW YORK, BUT IT'S ALSO NOT QUITE THAT EERIE, ALMOST POST-APOCALYPTIC FEELING YOU GOT

THERE ARE SOME SIGNS OF LIFE, PEOPLE RIDING BIKES, WALKING WITH THEIR FAMILIES, HEADING TO WORK A LITTLE BIT — WE'RE SEEING A BIT OF A NEW NORMAL COME BACK IN NEW YORK HERE >> YEAH I KNOW WE SAID THIS BEFORE TODAY, BUT IT SORT OF LOOKS LIKE WHAT A SUNDAY IN NEW YORK IS LIKE IN THE SUMMER WHEN PEOPLE AREN'T EXACTLY AROUND NICE TO SEE SOME FOLKS BACK OUT AND ABOUT AGAIN

>> THANKS SO MUCH, ALISON >>> THERE ARE NOW MORE THAN 100,000 CORONAVIRUS CASES IN FLORIDA THE SMALL TOWN OF MUKLEY HAS 25,000 RESIDENTS, BUT OVER A THOUSAND CASES FARMERS SAY THEY'VE BEEN WORKING WITH LITTLE TO NO PROTECTIVE GEAR CAREY SANDERS JOINS ME NOW

THERE ARE MORE CASES THERE THAN IN ORLANDO HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? >> Reporter: YOU KNOW, ALISON, IT IS CRAZY, BUT THE FOLKS WHO LIVE AND WORK HERE, ESPECIALLY THE MIGRANT WORKERS SAY THEY WERE OVERLOOKED TO PUT A FINE POINT ON THE STATISTICS, THEY TESTED HERE, AND ABOUT ONE IN EVERY TWENTY-FIVE FOLKS IS SHOWING CORONAVIRUS, A STATISTIC THAT IS SCARING OFFICIALS WHY THEY MISSED THIS POPULATION IS UNCLEAR THEY SET UP HOURS AT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT THAT WERE IN CONTRAST TO WHAT THEY NORMALLY DO

DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS RECOGNIZED THE PROBLEM HERE THEY NORMALLY ARE OVERSEAS IN WAR ZONES AND OTHER PLACES THAT HAVE HAD NATURAL DISASTERS BUT IN A RARE CASE, THEY HAD SET UP HERE IN AMOKLEY, FLORIDA, TO HELP ATTEND TO THE FOLKS IT IS ONLY JUST IN THE LAST WEEK THEY HAVE FINALLY BEEN ABLE TO HAND OVER THAT RESPONSIBILITY TO THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT, WHICH HAS ADJUSTED ITS HOURS FOR IF FOLKS WHO LIVE HERE, ACROSS THE STATE, IF YOU LOOK AT THE STATISTICS, WE HAVE BEEN SEEING, TAKING A LOOK AT THAT GRAPH THERE, THE NUMBERS GOING UP AND UP AND UP

LIKE YOU SAID, IT WAS 100,000 CASES NOW IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA IT REALLY REFLECTS THE COMMUNITY ACROSS THE STATE SLOWLY OPENING BEACHES, OPENING RESTAURANTS, OPENING BARS WE'VE SEEN THE NUMBERS SORT OF PARALLELLING THAT PROGRESS SO IF YOU WERE A BETTING MAN, YOU'D PROBABLY SAY THERE IS A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP THE MEDICAL AUTHORITIES AND THE FOLKS REALLY ULTIMATELY ARE THE POLITICAL LEADERS SAY IT'S NOT AN OBVIOUS DIRECT RELATIONSHIP, BUT CLEARLY THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON HERE, WHERE IT'S CAUSE AND EFFECT

ALISON? >> WHAT ARE THOSE FOLKS YOU'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE SPIKE, ABOUT HOW THE TOWN IS HELPING THEM? WHAT ARE YOU HEARING? >> Reporter: THE FOLKS HERE ARE SORT OF DESPERATE THEY LIVE IN MIGRANT CAMPS THEY'RE NOT IN WHAT THEY CALL A BIG CITY OR COMMUNITY THIS IS A SMALL AREA THERE'S ABOUT 23 MILES, AND WHILE THERE'S 24,000 OR SO PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE, A LOT OF THAT IS FARM TERRITORY

THEY LIVE IN LITTLE CAMPS SOME OF THE FOLKS HERE WHO HAVE EMPLOYED THESE PEOPLE HAVE TRIED TO HELP THEM IN OTHERS CASES, THEY HAVE GONE OFF THE RADAR, NOT GIVING MASKS, NOT GIVING SPACE THEY GET TOGETHER IN SORT OF A CLOSE PROXIMITY, TAKING ITEMS FOR THE FIELD, A VEGETABLE, AND THEY PLACE NIT THE BOX, AND THE BOX GOES ON TO THE TRACK THE FOLKS HERE TELL ME THEY ARE CONCERNED THAT THEY WERE OVERLOOKED AND CONTINUE TO BE OVERLOOK

THAT'S WHAT ONE MIGRANT FARM WORKER HAD TO TELL ME >> WHAT ARE YOU MOST WORRIED ABOUT NOW? >> TRANSLATOR RIGHT NOW, FOR OUR COMMUNITY, IS THAT THEY DON'T HAVE EVERYTHING THAT THEY NEED TO STOP THE TRANSMISSION OF THE CORONAVIRUS IT COULD GET EVEN WORSE >> Reporter: THIS PROBLEM HERE THAT IS NOW THAT IS QUITE APPARENT COULD GET WORSE >> TERRY, WE HEARD SOME WORK RESTER GOING TO OTHER STATES

ARE THEY GETTING TESTED? >> SOME ARE AND SOME NOT THEY FOLLOW THE HARVEST THEY ARE MOVING INTO FLORIDA, SOUTH GEORGIA THEY ARE MOVING INTO SOUTH CAROLINA, NORTH CAROLINA, FOLLOWING AS THE CROP BECOMES LIFE, AND THEY HAVE THEIR WORK IN PLACE

SO IF NOTHING ELSE, THOSE WHO I SPOKE TO HERE SAY THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEND A DIRECT MESSAGE TO THE GOVERNORS IN GEORGIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, NORTH CAROLINA, THE NEXT THREE STATES WHERE THE HARVEST WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE EAST COAST, AND SAY TO THEM, "PLEASE DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKE OF FLORIDA DON'T OVERLOOK OUR COMMUNITY" HAVE OUR HEALTH OFFICIALS READY TO RESPOND THERE IS A DISCONNECT

THE COMMUNITIES ARE NOT TIGHTLY IN THE SENSE THAT FARM WORKERS FEEL THEY ARE A PART OF THE TOWNS THEY'RE WORKING IN SO THEY CAN FEEL SEPARATED FROM THE HEALTH SERVICES THAT THEY SO ENTER THELY NEED, AND ULTIMATELY NEED TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS, ALISON >> THANKS SO MUCH >>> MASKS ARE NOW REQUIRED IN MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA IT WAS A BATTLE TO GET THERE

THERE'S A SPIKE OF CASES IN MONTGOMERY, ESPECIALLY AMONG BLACK RESIDENTS ALISON BARBER HAS THE STORY >> Reporter: IN GOOD MORNING, ALABAMA, A HEATED DEBATE OVER REQUIRING MASS INCOMES A CITY HIT HARD BY THE CORONAVIRUS >> I THINK I HAVE A DUTY TO WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC TO HELP WITH THE PREVENTION OF THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS, AND HOPEFULLY WILL, IN SOME LITTLE WAY, LOAD TO THIS PANDEMIC EVENTUALLY COOLING TO AN END >> I DON'T FEEL LIKE WE SHOULD BE FORCED TO WEAR ONE

>> WITH FIVE MILLION PEOPLE LIVING IN ALABAMA, ACCORDING TO THE LATEST CENSUS, AND 69% ARE WHITE TWENTY-EIGHT PERCENT ARE BLACK AS THE STATE CONTINUES TO BATTLE COVID-19, THE COUNTY THAT'S BEEN HIT THE MODEST MORE THAN 3,000 PEOPLE HAVE TESTED POSITIVE, AND OVER A THOUSAND OF THOSE CASES HAVE HAPPENED IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS AFRICAN AMERICANS IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY MAKE UP 72% OF ALL CORONAVIRUS CASES

MORE THAN 60% OF THE DEATHS RIGHT NOW, DOCTORS SAY TCU AT JACKSON HOSPITAL IS NEARLY FULL WITH COVID PATIENTS FINALITY PERCENT OF THOSE FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES ARE BLACK >> YOU LOOK AT WHAT'S GOING ON IN BIRMINGHAM NOW, THEY'RE TESTING AT 5% WE TESTED PROBABLY 60% LESS THAN THEY HAVE, YET WE HAVE A 28% POSITIVE RATE

>> Reporter: ACROSS TOWN AT ANOTHER HOSPITAL SHE'S HAD TO WATCH HER MOTHER WIELD OUT OF THE ICU BY A MORTUARY >> I HAVE BEEN IN MEDICINE LONG ENOUGH TO SEE PEOPLE DIE MORE THAN I CARE TO SEE PEOPLE DIE THIS HAS BEEN HORRIFIC, BECAUSE IN SPITE OF EVERYTHING MY COLLEAGUES ARE DOING, THE CRITICAL CARE, THOSE WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK WITH THESE PATIENTS, NOTHING IS WORKING >> Reporter: WILLIAM BOYD HAS LOST FIVE FAMILY MEMBERS TO THE VIRUS NOW HIS BROTHER HAS IT

HE'S IN INTENSIVE CARE, UNRESPONSIVE, AND BARELY HOLDING ON >> WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO PEOPLE WHO STILL MIGHT NOT WEAR A MASK DESPITE THE ORDINANCE >> DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A PHONE CALL EARLY ONE MORNING MASK UP, PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCE WASH YOUR HANDS

>> Reporter: THE INEQUALITIES COVID HAS BROUGHT TO LIFE CANNOT BE FIXED IN A DAY OFFICIALS SAY WHAT YOU WEAR COULD SAVE LIVES >>> WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS DEFENDING THE PRESIDENT AFTER HE CALLED FOR A SLOW DOWN IN TESTING, BECAUSE OF A SURGE IN CASES >> THAT WAS TONGUE IN CHEEK >> I DON'T KNOW THAT IT WAS — >> TONGUE IN CHEEK

>> FOR MONTHS >> TESTING IS A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE >> IT WAS A LIGHT MOMENT >> WE'RE 60 SECONDS INTO THE TONGUE AND CHEEK THING ASKED AND ANSWERED

>> THE PRESIDENT WAS ASKED IF HE TOLD OFFICIALS TO SLOW DOWN TESTING >> THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE VERY LITTLE PROBLEM WE'RE SHOWING YOUNG PEOPLE WITH VERY LITTLE PROBLEM

>> DID YOU ASK TO SLOW IT DOWN? >> IF IT DID SLOW DOWN, FRANKLY, I THINK WE'RE WAY AHEAD OF OURSELVES, TO TELL THE TRUTH >> NBCNEWSCOM SENIOR WHITE HOUSE REPORTER SHANNON PETTY JOINS ME NOW THE PRESIDENT DIDN'T REALLY ANSWER THE QUESTION >> OFFICIALS HAVING SAYING HE DIDN'T MEAN THAT, THAT IT WAS A JOKE THE PRESIDENT HAS TALKED ABOUT THE IDEA THAT THE NUMBER OF CASES IN THE US LOOK WORSE, BECAUSE WE DO MORE TESTING OF COURSE, OTHER COUNTRIES THAT DID TESTING EARLY ON HAVE A LOWER NUMBER OF CASES BECAUSE THEY WERE ABLE TO QUICKLY IDENTIFY CASES, AND CONTINUE — QUARANTINING AND CONTINUING THE ISSUE

THAT ARGUMENT DOESN'T NECESSARILY HOLD UP THAT DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE HOLDING UP, BECAUSE THE CASES ARE IN THE TESTING IING HE CERTAINLY HAS CONTROL OVERTRYING TO SLOW THAT PROCESS DOWN

>> JENNA, THE WHITE HOUSE IS SCALING BACK IN ITS PROCEDURES FOR VISITORS EVEN AFTER CAMPAIGN STAFFERS TESTED POSITIVELY OVER THE WEEKEND TWO MORE TODAY WHAT SAFEGUARDS IS THE WHITE HOUSE GETTING RID OF? >> SO SINCE THE WHITE HOUSE ADDED TWO OFFICIALS CLOSE TO THE PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT'S VALETS, VICE PRESIDENT'S SPOKESPERSON INFECTED WITH THE CORONAVIRUS BACK IN MAY, THEY STARTED DOING TEMPERATURE CHECKS OF EVERY VISITOR, STAFFER, REPORTER WHO ENTERED THE WHITE HOUSE THERE ARE THESE WHITE TENTS SET UP OUTSIDE THE GATE, WHERE THEY TAKE YOUR TEMPERATURE, ASK YOU IF YOUR EVE BEEN EXPERIENCING A RANGE OF SYSTEMS

THOSE TENTS OUT THERE WERE GONE PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO ENTER WITHOUT HAVING ANY QUESTIONS THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THAT STAFFERS AND BUSINESSES WHO ARE IN CONTACT WITH THE PRESIDENT ARE STILL TESTED THE REST OF THE HUNDREDS WHO WORK ON THE CAMPUS WHO INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER THROUGHOUT THE DAY THEN THERE'S THE ISSUE OF MASKS

BACK IN MAY AFTER THESE TWO AIDES WERE INFECTED, THE MEMO WENT OUT REQUIRING EVERYONE IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THE WEST WING TO WEAR A MASK EXCEPT WHEN THEY WERE SITTING AT THEIR DESK AND CAN DO SOCIAL DISTANCING THAT HAS GONE AWAY LAST WEEK, SECRETARY McILNINI SAID MASKS ARE RECOMMENDED, BUT NOT REQUIRED I VERY RARELY SEE STAFFERS WEARING MASKS OFTENTIMES, I DO SEE SECRET SERVICE AGENTS WITH MASKS

THOSE SEEM TO HAVE GONE BY THE WAYSIDE AS WELL THAT WAS WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE SAID THEY WERE NOW GOING BACK ON IT DOESN'T MEAN AN OFFICE OR DAY- CARE FACILITY OR SCHOOL OR WHATEVER, WHEN THEY TAKE TEMPERATURES OF THEIR EMPLOYEES IN THE MORNING IF THEY WANTED TO >> RIGHT >> SHANNON, IN THIS SAME INTERVIEW, THE PRESIDENT ALSO COMMITTED TO A SECOND ROUND OF STIMULUS CHECKS

DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THAT COULD LOOK LIKE AND WHEN IT COULD POTENTIALLY HAPPEN? >> NOT REALLY IT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH CONGRESS AT THIS POINT THERE IS AN EXPECTATION CONGRESS IS BEGINNING PASS OR TAKE UP AT LEAST TAKE UP A BILL THEY WANT MONEY FOR SPACE I THINK A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH WHAT THE ECONOMIC PICTURES LOOK LIKE WHEN WE GET TO MID-JULY

>> JENNA, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT JEFFREY BURMAN, THE ATTORNEY FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK WHO WAS FIRED OVER THE WEEKEND THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS NOT INVOLVED BUT TODAY SECRETARY KEVIN MALINI SUGGESTED HE WAS >> HE WAS INVOLVED IN THE SIGN-OFF CAPACITY, IN A SIGN-OFF CAPACITY AS TO WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS >> DO WE KNOW ANY MORE ABOUT BURMAN'S REMOVAL? >> IT WAS LIKE A PASSING OF THE HOT POTATO BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND BARR OVER THE WEEKEND

BARR WAS SAYING THE PRESIDENT WANTS THIS THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING THAT BARR'S JOB HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT IT TURNED INTO WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN UNNECESSARY, MANUFACTURED CRISIS WHY DID THEY HAVE TO LOSE THE US

ATTORNEY, SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, FOUR, FIVE MONTHS OUT IF AN ELECTION IT'S A BIG QUESTION THE ONLY EXPLANATION KEVIN McANINI HAD WAS THEY WANTED TO KEEP THE CHAIRMAN, AND THE ONLY JOB THEY COULD FIND FOR HIM WAS APPARENTLY PUTTING HIM IN CHARGE OF SD AND Y, EVEN THOUGH HE HAS NOT PROSECUTORIAL EXPERIENCE STILL AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY BUMAN WOULD BE REMOVED AND REALLY WHAT WAS BEHIND THE FIRING

I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS WE DON'T KNOW THE ANSWERS TO YET >> THANKS AGAIN >>> THE WHITE HOUSE PUSHING BACK TODAY ON REPORTS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS, QUOTE, " FURIOUS" ABOUT ATTENDANCE AT THE RALLY

>> THE PRESIDENT WAS VERY PLEASED ABOUT THE RALLY I HEARD REPORTS HE WAS SOMEHOW FURIOUS THERE IS NO GROUNDING OF FACT TO THAT >> THE ARENA SEATS 19,000 PEOPLE, BUT THERE WERE ONLY ABOUT 6,200 PEOPLE THERE

JOHN ALLEN WRITING THAT THE DEFLATING TURN OUT WAS A DEEPER PROBLEM FOR THE PRESIDENT JOHN JOINS ME NOW JOHN, LET'S TALK ABOUT IT WHAT IS THIS DEEPER PROBLEM FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP? >> I THINK IT'S A MISMATCH OF HIS EXPECTATIONS OF WHERE HIS SUPPORT IS WHERE HIS SUPPORT ACTUALLY IS THEY HAD A MILLION SIGN UPS, AND WERE COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF THE FACT MOST OF THOSE SIGN UPS, THE VAST MAJORITY, OVER 6,200 OF THOSE SIGN UPS WERE NOT ACTUALLY GOING TO BE THERE

THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID THERE'S A SILENT MAJORITY THAT BACKS HIM A MINORITY OF THE ELECT RAT VOTED FOR HIM IN 2016 IN 2018, HIS PARTY GOT CRUSHED AT THE POLLS, AND LOST CONTROL OF THE HOUSE IF YOU LOOK AT PUBLIC POLLING, HIS APPROVAL RATING IS BACK MIRED IN THE LOW 40S

THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO SAID HE HAS A SILENT MAJORITY, BUT WHAT WE SAW IS AN INVISIBLE MINORITY IN TULSA THERE WERE A MILLION PEOPLE WHO HAD SIGNED UP >> LET'S LOOK AT THE SPEECHES ITSELF IT WAS SAID THERE WAS A LACK OF FOCUS IN THE SPEECH, WAY TOO MANY RISK STORIES NOW, THAT'S WHAT A LOT OF THE PRESIDENT'S 2016 SPEECHES WERE LIKE WHY IS THAT A PROBLEM IN 2020? >> I THINK IT'S A PROBLEM FOR HIM NOW, BECAUSE THERE'S SUCH A LITTLE MARGIN FOR ERROR OF COURSE, THERE WAS ALSO IN 2016 A LITTLE MARGIN FOR ERROR FOR HIM NOW AT THIS POINT, HE REALLY NEEDS TO BE MAKING THAT CASE AGAINST JOE BIDEN

YOU HEARD SOME OF THAT IN THE SPEECH IT WAS SUCH A SMALL PROPORTION OF A SPEECH I THINK MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO TUNED IN TUNED OUT THAT >> DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE JOE BIDEN SAID TODAY HE AGREES TO NO MORE THAN THREE DO YOU HAVE ANY SENSE OF WHAT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN THINKS ABOUT THAT AND WHAT THEIR DEBATE SCHEDULE LOOKS LIKE? >> THE CAMPAIGN HAS ALREADY RESPONDED IN THE EXTENT THAT BIDEN IS AFRAID TO BE OUT IN PUBLIC

HE'S AFRAID OF DEBATING THE PRESIDENT WE SEE THIS IN CAMPAIGNS ALL THE TIME THE SIDE THAT THINKS IT'S LOSING WANTS MORE DEBATES THE SIDE THAT'S WINNING WANTS FEWER IT IS A REPRESENTATION OF WHERE BOTH TEAMS THINK THEY ARE RIGHT NOW, WHICH IS THAT BIDEN HAS A SUBSTANTIAL, IF NOT COMMANDING LEAD

JO, FACEBOOK MAKES 99% OF ITS REVENUE FROM ADVERTISING TELL US ABOUT THE BOYCOTT >> HEY, ALISON, IT'S CALLED STOP PROCESS FOR HATE THAT'S THE HASHTAG IF YOU'RE ON SOCIAL MEDIA, YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT

BASICALLY IT'S A COALITION OF THE NAACP, COLOR FOR CHANGE, AN ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION, SAYING, "WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO HIT FACEBOOK'S BOTTOM LINE" IT'S FOR A MONTH ONLY, THE MONTH OF JULY THE BRANDS ARE COMING OUT, NORTH FACE RAI, SAYING — PATAGONIA AS WELL, SAYING, "WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING TO MOTIVATE FACEBOOK," BECAUSE THEY DO MAKE 99% OF THEIR REVENUE ON ADVERTISING SO THE IDEA HERE IS TO PUSH THAT CHANGE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THESE NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS ALISON? >> HOW IS FACEBOOK RESPONDING, JO? >> FACEBOOK HAS GIVEN A COUPLE OF STATEMENTS

WHEN WE FIRST STARTED COVERING THIS ABOUT A WEEK AGO, WE GOT THIS FROM ANDY STONE I'M GOING TO READ IT TO YOU HERE ''OUR FOCUS IS TO ASK WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT" WHAT THEY MEAN THERE IS THEY ARE STARTING A VOTER INFORMATION CENTER THE STATEMENT GOES ON TO SAY, IN THE 1st QUARTER OF THIS YEAR ALONE, FACEBOOK TELLS US THEY REMOVED 10 MILLION PIECES OF HATE SPEECH, 89% OF WHICH WAS CAUGHT BY OUR SYSTEMS BEFORE IT WAS REPORTED TO US

THEY SAY THEY'RE MAKING PROGRESS THEY'RE GETTING CAUGHT ON OTHER SIDE OF THE DEBATE ABOUT MISSING INFORMATION IN PARTICULAR, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S BEING COMPARED TO COMPANIES LIKE TWITTER AND OTHERS SO FACEBOOK TRYING TO STAY AHEAD OF THIS BOYCOT ACCORDING TO THE PEOPLE WE'RE TALKING TO INSIDE THE AD INDUSTRY AND AT THE SOCIAL COMPANIES, IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME MORE BIG NAMES, THINKING ABOUT DOING A TEMPORARY JULY BOYCOTT COMING UP LATER THIS WEEK, ALISON >> ALL RIGHT, JO

TIM COOK TOOK THE STAGE THEY'VE KNOWN THIS WAS COMING FOR AWHILE SO NOW THEY'RE OFFICIALLY SWITCHING TO THEIR OWN PROCESSERS WHEN IT COMES TO TEXTING, YOU'LL BE ABLE TO DO IN-LINE REPLIES WHEN IT COMES TO TEXTING IN A GROUP

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF UPDATES THE BIG ONE IS THE PROCESSER THAT WILL BE CHANGING THE INDUSTRY MORE SO THAN IT ALREADY HAS >> A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TO THAT ANNOUNCEMENT AS THE BIG ONE, BUT THE MASK WITH THE EMOJIS, I THOUGHT THAT WAS REALLY GREAT >> THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD

BUT I WANT TO POINT OUT ONE MORE THING SO MANY PEOPLE WEAR THE APPLE WATCH I DON'T THE TIMING OF THE HAND WASHING WERE BIG HEADLINES SOME OF US CARE

OTHERS WORRY ABOUT THE HAND WASHING AND THE HEART-RATE MONITOR >> BIG NEWS THERE I AM AN APPLE WATCH WEARER GOOD NEWS TO KNOW THANKS FOR BEING WITH US

>> IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE A MORE STRESSFUL TIME TO GET AN EVICTION NOTICE IN TEXAS, THE BAN ON EVICTIONS ENDED IN LATE MAY AND MANY ARE SCRAMBLING TO COME UP WITH THE MONEY THEY OWE OR LOSE THEIR HOMES DAN LEANERMAN SAT DOWN WITH A WOMAN FACING ADDICTION >> ADELE HAD BEEN WORKING WHEN HER FATHER FELL GRAVELY ILL

>> I HAD TO GO TO NEW YORK MY FATHER WASN'T EXPECTED TO MAKE IT >> HE HAD THE CORONAVIRUS? >> HE DID HAVE THE CORONAVIRUS HE FOUGHT THAT >> Reporter: ADELE RIP CURRENT TO TEXAS WITH A FAVOR

SHE LOST HER JOB AND FELL BEHIND ON HER RENT HER LANDLORD GAVE HER LITTLE LEEWAY >> HE FILE EVICTION AGAINST YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC >> HE KEPT SAYING, IF YOU MOVE OUT, THEN THERE WON'T BE ANY PROBLEM >> THIS WAS THE MOMENT WHEN ADELE WAS CONFRONTED BY HER LANDLORD IN THE DRIVEWAY OF HER HOUSTON HOME

>> UNBELIEVABLE HE'S BLOCKING THE DRIVEWAY SO I CAN'T LEAVE >> DAN REUBEN JOINS ME NOW WE ALL WANT TO KNOW, HOW DID THAT CONFRONTATION END? >> YEAH

HE CONFRONTED IT RIGHT THERE IN THE DRIVEWAY AND SHE WAS SCARED HER KIDS WERE SCARED ULTIMATELY, SHE DECIDED TO MOVE OUT A FEW WEEKS AGO SHE WAS FACING AN EVICTION

HE FILED A CASE IN THE COURT, IN THE HOUSTON AREA RATHER THAN GO TO WORK, RATHER THAN POSSIBLY GET A TERRIBLE MARK ON HER CREDIT AND DAMAGE HER FUTURE RENTAL PROSPECT, SHE DECIDED TO JUST PACK UP AND MOVE IT WAS A TERRIFYING MOMENT THAT HER SON DID CAPTURE ON VIDEO SHE'S STAYING WITH A FRIEND NOW SHE HAS TO PACK EVERYTHING UP INTO A U HAUL, A VAN, MOVE TO A FRIEND'S PLACE

SHE SAID THEY FEEL HOMELESS NOW THEY'RE LOOKING AT AN EVENT SHE LOST HER JOB DURING THE PANDEMIC IT'S BEEN HARD TO ACTUALLY GET ANOTHER PLACE, BECAUSE MANY PROPERTIES SHE'S APPLYING FOR ARE STILL ASKING FOR PROOF THAT SHE MAKES THREE TIMES THE RENT AND DURING A PANDEMIC, WHILE SHE'S ON UNEMPLOYMENT, THAT'S JUST NOT POSSIBLE

AND IT'S NOT POSSIBLE FOR MANY FOLKS OUT THERE, ALISON >> WHAT A HORRIBLE THING TO BE GOING THROUGH AT A TIME LIKE THIS I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING INTO EVICTIONS IN THE HOUSTON AREA SINCE MARCH WHEN BOTH LOCAL AND FEDERAL PROTECTIONS TOOK EFFECT WHAT HAVE YOU FOUND? >> WE SAW N THE HOUSTON AREA ALONE, THAT SINCE THE FEDERAL MORATORIUM ENDED BEGAN IN MARCH, THERE'S BEEN MORE THAN 3,200 EVICTION CASES FILED IN THE HARRIS COUNTY COURT SYSTEM THAT'S THE HOUSTON AREA

THAT'S A REALLY HIGH NUMBER AND WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE IS THAT THOUGH THERE'S A FEDERAL MORATORIUM IN PLACE, THAT IS REALLY NOT COVERING A LOT OF RENTERS THERE ARE A LOT OF PROPERTIES NOT COVERED BY THAT IT ONLY COVERS PROPERTIES THAT HAVE FEDERALLY BACKED MORTGAGES AND MANY LANDLORDS WE FOUND IN OUR REPORTING IN THE TEXAS AREA ARE SIMPLY NOT FOLLOWING THE RULES

MANY DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE RULES SO IT REALLY CREATES THIS PATCHWORK OF PROBLEMS FOR TENANTS AND LANDLORDS AS THEY TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE RULES ARE NOW WE'RE SEEING NATIONWIDE THAT NEARLY HALF OF THE STATE MORATORIUMS HAVE EXPIRED SO YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT COVERED YOU'RE SEEING PROTESTS STARTING UP IN NEW YORK AND BROOKLYN

THIS IS A NATIONWIDE PROBLEM AND UNTIL THERE'S MORE FUNDING, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE LIKE ERICA IN THE HOUSTON AREA CAN TRY TO GET ASSISTANCE FROM THE CITY, FROM A DIFFERENT ORGANIZATION IT'S REALLY A PATCHWORK THE MONEY IS GONE IN AN HOUR AND A HALF THERE'S NOT ENOUGH OF IT

THERE NEEDS TO BE A MUCH MORE ROBUST FEDERAL RESPONSE TO HELP PEOPLE IN THIS CRISIS >> LET ME ASK YOU MORE ABOUT IT IS THERE SPECIFIC HELP FOR PEOPLE WORRIED THEY CAN'T MAKE THEIR RENT FROM WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE SAYING, IT'S NOT A VERY ORGANIZED OR DEPTH OF RESOURCES FOR PEOPLE TO GO — TO SEEK HELP FROM >> YEAH, IT'S A REAL PROBABLE

LOOK, THIS IS HARD FOR LANDLORDS AS WELL WHO HAVE TO PAY THEIR MORTGAGES WHAT WE HEARD IS IT'S IN THEIR INTEREST TO KEEP TENANTS IN PLACE, TO COME UP ARRANGEMENTS, A PAYMENT PLAN IN MANY CASES, IT'S NOT POSSIBLE UNTIL THERE IS A MORE ROBUST FEDERAL RESPONSE, UNTIL THERE'S MORE LEGISLATION PASSED, THERE IS A BILL IN CONGRESS NOW IT'S STALLED IN THE SENATE

IT'S ON MITCH McCONNELL'S DESK, AND IT IS NOT PASSING $100 BILLION OF RENTAL RELIEF ASSISTANCE IS JUST WAITING TO PASS IN CONGRESS THAT WOULD GO A LONG WAY REALLY, IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER AT STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL TO PROVIDE MORE ASSISTANCE WE ARE NOW SEEING A CRISIS WHERE THERE CAN JUST BE A WAVE OF EVICTIONS IN THE COMING WEEKS AND MONTHS, ALISON

>> YOU CAN WATCH MORE REPORTING ON "NBC NEWS" JUST DOWNLOAD THE APP >>> A NEW YORK CITY POLICE OFFICER SUSPENDED WITHOUT PAY FOR APPLYING WHAT APPEARS TO BE A CHOKEHOLD JUST A WARNING FOR OUR VIEWERS, SOME OF THE FOOTAGE YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE IS DISTURBING

ING >> CORRESPONDENT TOM WINTER JOINS ME NOW WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS INCIDENT? >> ALISON, BASICALLY THE INCIDENT, WHAT WE JUST SAW IN THAT CELL PHONE WAS 8:45:00 AM, SUNDAY NIGHT

THAT, OFFICERS WERE RESPONDING TO A REPORTED CALL OF THREE MALES APPARENTLY HARASSING, ACCORDING TO THE CALLS THEY RECEIVED, HARASSING PEOPLE WHO WERE WALKING BY, MAY HAVE BEEN THROWING THINGS THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, OFFICERS INITIALLY SAID THEY RESPONDED TO THE THING THE PERSON YOU SAW IN THE CHOKEHOLD WAS SOMEBODY WHO THEY SAY MAY HAVE ATTEMPTED TO THROW A BAG OR OBJECT AT POLICE OFFICERS ULTIMATELY, THEY ATTEMPTED TO ARREST THE PERSON THEN, AS YOU SAW THERE, THE OFFICER INVOLVED APPARENTLY USED A CHOKEHOLD ON HIM

IT'S INCONCLUSIVE ABOUT WHAT YOU SEE ON THE CAMERA WHAT WE SEE ON THE SCREEN VERY CLEARLY APPEARS TO SHOW THE OFFICER'S ARM AROUND THE PERSON'S NECK A BIG NO, NO FOR THE NYPD IT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS BANNED APPROXIMATELY 20 YEARS AGO, THE USE OF A CHOKEHOLD IN MAKING AN ARREST

SO THERE'S AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION THERE IF THAT SUSPECT WAS IN FEAR FOR HIS LIFE AND THEY WERE FIGHTING, IT WOULD NOT BE ILLEGAL TO USE THAT TECHNIQUE BUT WHEN YOU'RE IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING AN ARREST, IT IS A DEFINITE NO, NO FOR THE NYPD IT IS SOMETHING THAT RECEIVED AN AWFUL LOT OF ATTENTION WHEN ERIC GARNER DIED AT THE HANDS OF POLICE SEVERAL YEARS BACK, AND A CHOKEHOLD WAS USED THERE

THAT IS PRETTY MUCH AN AUTOMATIC NO-NO IT GOT THE ATTENTION OF THE TOP COP >> I HAVE A BUNCH OF LESSONS DO YOU KNOW IF THE GUY IN THAT VIDEO IS OKAY, THE ONE IN THAT PARENT CHOKEHOLD AFTER THAT, IF YOU CAN TELL US HOW THE POLICE COMMISSIONER REACHED HIS DECISION

>> THE PERSON IN THAT VIDEO HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS RICKY BELLEVUE, AGE 35 THAT PERSON DIDN'T RECEIVE ATTENTION THEY WERE TREATED BY MEDICAL PERSONNEL, RECEIVED MINOR INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THAT INCIDENT THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS REACTED IMMEDIATELY IN POLICING WORLD TERMS, MEANING THAT BY 6:29 LAST NIGHT, THE NYPD PROVIDED THE BODY CAMERA, THE TOTALITY OF THE INCIDENT TO REPORTERS, MADE IT PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON ITS YOUTUBE PAGE LAST NIGHT, THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, AGAIN, A LITTLE OVERNINE HOURS AFTER THE INCIDENT OCCURRED CAME OUT AND SAID THE PERSON WAS SUSPENDED, THE OFFICER HAS BEEN SUSPENDED WITHOUT PAY AND THEY WOULD BE SUBJECT TO AN ONGOING INTERNAL AFFAIRS BUREAU INVESTIGATION CHARGES ARE CERTAINLY POSSIBLE IN THIS CASE ON TOP OF THAT, THE OFFICER HAS HAD SEVERAL RUN INS WITH THE LAW

HE WAS ACQUITTED BY A JURY YOU CAN BET THEY'RE NOT DONE WITH THE INVESTIGATION IN THIS CASE CHARGES ARE CERTAINLY POSSIBLE CHARGES ARE POSSIBLE BECAUSE HE USED THAT BANNED CHOKEHOLD

IT WOULD BE EXCESSIVE FORCE FROM A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE APPEARS THAT WAY THE OFFICER IS FACING TROUBLE WITH A BADGE GOING FORWARD >> I'M SURE IT SOUNDS LIKE IT >> ANOTHER ISSUE THE POLICE COMMISSIONER IS DEALING WITH A SPIKE IN SHOOTINGS

YOU'RE UPSET ABOUT THAT THIS MORNING >> THE FINAL COUNT WAS 53 SHOOTINGS THIS WEEK IF PEOPLE AREN'T TALKING ABOUT IT, THEY'RE GOING TO BE SOON WE CANNOT STEP AWAY FROM QUALITY OF LIFE POLICING THEY'RE DOING A VERY DIFFICULT JOB >> ANY REACTION FROM THE MAYOR ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? >> EVERYBODY IS TAKING A HARD LOOK AT THIS, ALISON THAT'S A TREMENDOUS INCREASE FROM 12 INCIDENTS IN SHOOTINGS LAST YEAR IT STARTED AFTER THE YEAR

IT RAMPED UP DURING COVID THERE WAS A DECLINE CITY- WIDE CRIME WENT DOWN OVER THE LOCKDOWN THAT IS OVER BURGLARIRIES ARE ON THE INCREASE

HOMICIDE IS GOING UP WE HAVE ALSO SEEN AN INCREASE IN HUSSEINS BASICALLY THE MAYOR AND THE COMMISSIONER LOOKING AT DIFFERENT ENDS OF THIS, THE PLAY YOUR SPEAKING ABOUT THIS, OBVIOUSLY KNOWS IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE THE BLAME FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HERE IS PRETTY CLEAR THEY'RE LOOKING AT THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM

BASICALLY THE NYPD SAYS, "LOOK, WE'RE NOT GOING TO CONTINUE" — IN AN INTERVIEW WITH LESTER HOLT, THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAYING EFFECTIVELY HERE, "WE'RE NOT GOING TO GO BACK TO THOSE DAYS WHERE WE'RE STOPPING PEOPLE ON THE STREET" THAT WAS BAD RELATIONS FOR THE COMMUNITY IT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS IMPACTED RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE MINORITY COMMUNITY FOR LONG PERIOD OF TIMES IT'S A THING A LOT OF AREN'T IN FAVOR OF EITHER THEY HAVE TO ADDRESS THAT DIFFERENTLY FROM A POLICING STANDPOINT

THEY'RE TRYING TO DO THAT THERE'S EVIDENCE WE'VE SEEN ON OUR OWN ON TOP OF THAT, WE HAVE NEW LAWS, AND WE'VE GOT OTHER CHANGES IN THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM, WHERE YOU NOW HAVE, ACCORDING TO THE POLICE COMMISSIONER THAT INTERVIEW, HE SAYS, "LOOK, I'VE GOT A THOUSAND PEOPLE OUT ON THE STREETS WHO ARE UNDER INDICTMENT ON GUN-RELATED CHARGES" THEY'RE BACK ON THE STREET, CAUSING PROBLEMS

SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT DATA, IT PAINTS A TROUBLING PICTURE THERE ARE A SELECT GROUP OF PEOPLE IN REALITY, IT'S A SELECT GROUP OF PEOPLE, SMALL AMOUNT OF THE POPULATION THAT COMMITS MOST OF THE CRIME AND THAT'S HOW THINGS WORK SO THEY WANT TO TACKLE THE PEOPLE THAT ARE JUST CONSISTENTLY CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR THEM

THEY CAN DRIVE DOWN CRIME AND BE BETTER FOR COMMUNITY RELATIONS TIME WILL TELL, BUT A TROUBLING TREND IN NEW YORK CITY YORK % CITY , ,, , , >> YOU DON'T HAVE TO RETALIATE WITH ANGER YOU RETALIATE WITH LOVE

THAT'S WHY WE'RE DOWN HERE >> THERE'S ALWAYS ANOTHER WAY THAT'S ALL I WANTED TO SEE >> TODAY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION OFFICIALLY CALLING IT A PANDEMIC NONE OF US IS UNAFFECTED BY ITS IMPACT

>> WE'RE GOING TO TRY EVERYTHING WE CAN TO KEEP LIFE AS NORMAL AS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYBODY >> IF IT GETS INTO AN ENVIRONMENT LIKE THIS, IT'S GOING TO SPREAD LIKE CORONAVIRUS >> WE'RE GOING TO BUILD THIS ECONOMY BACK STRONGER THAN EVER BEFORE

>> THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS NOT BEING DONE RIGHT NOW >> COMING IN NOVEMBER, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE VOTING NOT FOR A PERSON, BUT FOR STABILITY >> YOU DON'T PREPARE FOR GIVING BIRTH IN A PANDEMIC >> THE IMPORTANCE IS TO KEEP OUR SPIRITS UP >> JOIN ME AS WE GO INTO AMERICA TO HEAR FROM EVERYDAY PEOPLE, GRAPPLING WITH THE MOST PRESSING ISSUES OF OUR TIME

RIGHT NOW, ONE DOZEN BARS HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN, SPECIFICALLY IN AUSTIN BECAUSE THEY HAD VIDEOS SURFACE OF MASSIVE CROWDS INSIDE AND DISREGARDING THE RULES PUT IN- PLACE THEIR PERMITS HAVE BEEN PULLED BUT OFFICIALS ARE GOING FARTHER TO SAY AS TEMPERATURES HEAT BACK UP AGAIN, THE PARTIES AT THE LAKE IN THE RIVER AND GRADUATION ACTIVITIES, ALL PARTIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS SURGE IN CASES >> MORGAN, I KNOW YOU ARE TRACKING WHAT IS GOING ON IN FLORIDA AND AS A PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE, IT'S NEARLY DOUBLED FROM JUNE 7 THROUGH THE 14th WHAT IS GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS SAYING ABOUT THAT AND HOW IS HE HANDLING THIS LATEST SPIKE? >> Reporter: IT'S INTERESTING YOU BRING THAT UP BECAUSE GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS, FOUR WEEKS IF NOT MONTHS, HAS BEEN TRYING TO CORRELATE ANY RISE IN CASES IN FLORIDA DUE TO THE INCREASED TESTING IT'S ABSOLUTELY UNDERSTANDABLE, TO A POINT BUT I WANT TO SHOW YOU A GRAPH

WHAT FLORIDA HAS EXPERIENCED, YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH THE NUMBERS WHEN YOU SEE THAT DRASTIC SPIKE GO UP OF THOSE CASES GOVERNOR DESANTIS RECENTLY MADE A STARTLING PIVOT, IF YOU WILL, SAYING IT'S NOT JUST THE INCREASED TESTING RESULTING IN THIS LATEST SURGE THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO IT AND HE IS IDENTIFYING THAT MORE PATIENTS THAT ARE YOUNGER AND SOME THAT HAVE BEEN HARD- HIT BY THE VIRUS IN RECENT WEEKS, IS WHAT THE GOVERNOR SAYS WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO, WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS TO TRY TO CREATE STRICTER POLICIES, SPECIFICALLY IN BARS, RESTAURANTS, ETC, THAT WOULD IMPLEMENT SOCIAL DISTANCING

THOSE YOUNGER PATIENTS, AS THEY SHOW UP, THEY ARE TRYING TO GO WHERE THEY ARE TO PUT THOSE RULES IN PLACE AND TO TRY TO LIMIT THE SPREAD IN FLORIDA, ALONE, THERE HAS BEEN 1000 NEW CASES A DAY FOR THE LAST 13 DAYS, SIGNIFICANT >> REALLY SOMETHING ELSE MORGAN CHESKY, THANKS SO MUCH >>> THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION REPORTS THE LARGEST SINGLE- DAY INCREASE IN COVID-19 INFECTIONS OVER THE WEEKEND WITH MORE THAN 183,000 NEW CASES AND MOST OF THEM IN BRAZIL AND THE UNITED STATES

MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT DR JOHN PEREZ JOINS ME WE'VE BEEN FIGHTING THIS PANDEMIC FOR MONTHS EVERYONE IS ASKING WHAT IS CAUSING THIS GLOBAL RISE IN CASES >> YOU ARE RIGHT

WE'VE BEEN FIGHTING THIS THING SINCE JANUARY AND FEBRUARY AND PEOPLE ARE SAYING, WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? WE THOUGHT IT WAS UNDER CONTROL AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT CASES GOING UP IN THE COUNTRY THAT IS ADDING TO THIS EVEN MORE SO, IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, BRAZIL, IN PARTICULAR, THEY ARE BATTLING THE CORONAVIRUS RIGHT NOW THEY ARE WHERE WE WERE A FEW MONTHS AGO AND IT'S NOT UNEXPECTED WE KNOW THIS VIRUS ACTS LIKE OTHER CORONAVIRUSES WHERE THE COLD WEATHER SEASON ACCELERATED IT AND THEY ARE IN THEIR WINTER RIGHT NOW

IT MIGHT BE LONGER THAN OURS, BUT IT'S THE WINTER TIME FRAME AND CIRCULATING DOWN THERE THE CONCERN IS, WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN IT STARTS MOVING BACK UP TO THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE TO OUR COOLER WEATHER, ESPECIALLY IF WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN THE FIRST WAVE UNDER CONTROL WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THE SECOND WAVE HITS? THAT'S THE BIG CONCERN RIGHT NOW >> I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE SECOND WAVE IN A MOMENT, DR JOHN

WHAT ABOUT IN THE US RIGHT NOW WITH 26 STATES SEEING AN UPTICK IN CASES OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS? WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE SPIKES IN OUR COUNTRY? >> WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THESE SPIKES IS SOMETHING YOU AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT YOU WILL SEE SPIKES IN CASES AND THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T TURN TO OUTBREAKS WE ARE RIGHT ON THE EDGE WHERE THEY ARE STARTING TO TURN TO OUTBREAKS AND GOVERNORS ARE STARTING TO TAKE MEASURES WHERE THEY MIGHT MANDATE MASKS AND CERTAIN THINGS BECAUSE THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT COULD HAPPEN OVER THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO

PLACES OPENED UP EARLY AND QUICKLY AND DIDN'T NECESSARILY PUT A LOT OF EMPHASIS ON THINGS THE ONES WITH MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING LACKING ARE WHERE THE SPIKES IN CASES ARE HAPPENING A LITTLE MORE GENTLE OPENINGS, THEY ARE NOT SPIKING QUITE SO MUCH OVER THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO, MORE THINGS WILL BE MANDATED BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE DOING WHAT WE KNOW WORKS, THE MASKS AND THE SOCIAL DISTANCING THEY MIGHT HAVE TO STEP IN AND SAY WE NEED YOU TO DO THAT BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONE THING THAT WILL KEEP US UNDER CONTROL, ALISON

>> DR JOHN, MORE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE TESTING POSITIVE IN THE NEW HOT SPOTS WHY IS THAT AND HOW CONCERNED ARE YOU? >> YOUNG PEOPLE ARE TESTING POSITIVE BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES GOING OUT, GOING TO THESE RESTAURANTS AND BARS AND NOT NECESSARILY WEARING MASKS OR SOCIAL DISTANCING THOSE 65 AND ABOVE AND WITH PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS, THEY ARE BEING VERY, VERY CAREFUL, ESPECIALLY IN HOT SPOT AREAS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS BEING TAKEN BY CORONAVIRUS THEY ARE STAYING HOME AND THOSE GOING OUT, IF THEY GET IT, THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW THEY HAVE IT AND THEY CAN SPREAD TO SOME THAT ARE MORE VULNERABLE AND THAT IS THE BIG CAUTION, ALISON

>> DR JOHN, LET'S TALK SECOND WAVE FOR MONTHS WE'VE HEARD THERE WILL LIKELY BE A SECOND WAVE OF COVID-19 IN THE FALL I WANT TO PLAY A CLIP FROM MEET THE PRESS YOU HAVE THIS INFECTIOUS DISEASE EXPERT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA

>> I THINK THIS IS MORE LIKE THE FIRST FIRE AND WON'T SLOW DOWN I'M NOT SURE THAT THE INFLUENZA APPLIES ANYMORE WHEREVER THERE IS WIND TO BURN, THE FIRE WILL BURN ON RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE A LOT OF SUSCEPTIBLE PEOPLE I DON'T SEE THIS SLOWING DOWN INTO THE SUMMER OR THE FALL AND I DON'T THINK WE WILL SEE WAVES, I JUST THINK WE WILL SEE A VERY, VERY DIFFICULT FOREST FIRE OF CASES >> DR

JOHN, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT THEORY? >> I THINK WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT IS THAT IF YOU REMEMBER, IN FEBRUARY, WE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEING A COLD-WEATHER VIRUS THAT SHOULD GET BETTER IN THE SUMMER AND NEVER WILL GO AWAY, BUT MIGHT COME BACK IN THE FALL IT'S NOT GOING AWAY LIKE WE THOUGHT IT WOULD AND THAT IS BECAUSE OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR PEOPLE ARE GETTING TO THAT PRE-PANDEMIC LEVEL WHERE THEY THINK THEY DON'T NEED MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCE WE ARE SEEING A CROP UP OF CASES AND IF THE FIRST WAVE DOESN'T GET UNDER CONTROL AND THE SECOND WAVE HAPPENS, THEY MAY COINCIDE AND THERE MIGHT BE AN EVEN BIGGER WAVES IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT KEEPS ON PERPETUATING AND MIGHT NOT BE UNTIL WE GET THAT RESPITE IN BETWEEN WITH A SMALLER SECOND WAVE, IT MIGHT BE THAT THEY COME IN TOGETHER

IT'S NOT UNAVOIDABLE, JUST THE DIRECTION THINGS ARE GOING WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO WE JUST NEED TO DO IT AND THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE >> DR JOHN, BEFORE I LET YOU GO — BECAUSE — WE SAY ALL THE TIME AND IT BEARS REPEATING, WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE DOING AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO HIM, ANYWAY, KEEP THESE WAVES AS LIMITED AS POSSIBLE AND KEEP OURSELVES AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE? >> EVERYBODY SHOULD WEAR MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCE WAS 6 FEET AND DON'T GATHER IN LARGE CROWDS

THAT'S THE MAIN THINGS TO DO AND IT WILL HELP KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL >> ALL RIGHT, DR JOHN ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE YOU AND THANKS FOR BEING WITH US >>> MEDICAL STAFF IS WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK TO TREAT CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS WITH CASES SPIKING ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND HERE ARE SOME STORIES FROM THE FRONT LINES

JUST TO THE SOUTH, THAT ENTIRE AREA THAT WE WOULD BE THE COUNTRY OF MEXICO WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS AREA, LOOKING ACROSS THE GREATER YUMA AREA, IT'S A VERY RURAL AREA AND PART OF CALIFORNIA WARY WHAT YOU WOULD SEE IS THIS HAS BECOME A HOT SPOT THE QUESTION IS, WILL THE PRESIDENT ADDRESSED THIS? AT THE YUMA REGIONAL MEDICAL FACILITY, THERE IS CURRENTLY 120 COVID POSITIVE PATIENTS AND THE FACILITY HAS SENT A GREAT NUMBER OF FOLKS TO OTHER HOSPITALS, PARTICULARLY IN TUCSON BECAUSE THEY ARE STRAPPED WITHIN THEIR FACILITIES, PARTICULARLY ON STAFFING, WITH NURSES AND CAPACITY TO SERVE THESE COVID PATIENTS ALSO, THEY'VE CHOSEN TO END ELECTIVE SURGERIES THIS WEEK BECAUSE OF THESE RISES IN CASES, ALISON >> LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND THE DECISION TO COME TO ARIZONA, PARTICULARLY YUMA WHILE THAT AREA IS STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP WITH THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK THERE? >> Reporter: IT'S AN INTERESTING DECISION BY THIS PRESIDENT IT IS ONE IN WHICH WE ARE FIVE MONTHS AWAY FROM THE GENERAL ELECTION AND THE PRESIDENT, BY ALL ACCOUNTS, NEEDS TO WIN ARIZONA THAT'S WHY YOU SAW HIM HERE ONE MONTH AGO AND HE IS NOT ONLY IN YUMA TOMORROW MORNING, BUT BACK TO PHOENIX FOR A STUDENTS FOR TRUMP CONVENTION AND TOMORROW AFTERNOON THAT WILL BE JUST IN THE LAST 15 DAYS, ALISON, THE NUMBER OF COVID CASES AN ARIZONA HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED IN JUST THE LAST 15 DAYS YOU HAVE SEEN THE NUMBERS SPIKE AND SURGE AND FRANKLY, THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TESTING ENOUGH TESTING CAPACITY TO PROCESS THE DEMAND OF TESTS

THEY ARE ICU FACILITIES ARE BEING MET AT CAPACITY AND THERE ARE QUESTION MARKS ABOUT WHAT THE COVID RESPONSE IS IN YUMA, MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN TUCSON AND FLAGSTAFF AND PHOENIX, MASK WEARING IS REQUIRED IT'S 109 DEGREES IN YUMA, ALISON THESE ARE THE STEPS IN LATE JUNE UNDER WAY TO TRY TO STOP THIS SPREAD BECAUSE THERE IS NO INDICATION OF NUMBERS GOING IN A DOWNWARD TRAJECTORY

>> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEING CRITICIZED FOR THIS REMARK ABOUT CORONAVIRUS TESTING AT HIS TULSA RALLY HEAR IT IS >> WOULD YOU DO TESTING TO THAT EXTENT? YOU WOULD FIND MORE PEOPLE, MORE CASES I SAID TO MY PEOPLE, SLOW THE TESTING DOWN, PLEASE >> THE WHITE HOUSE LATER SAID THE PRESIDENT WAS JOKING

TESTING IS A BIG CONCERN IN ARIZONA YOU SPOKE TO THE MAYOR OF YUMA ABOUT TESTING AND WHAT DID HE TELL YOU AND DID HE REACT TO THE PRESIDENT'S COMMENTS? >> THE REPUBLICAN MAYOR, DOUG NICHOLS, JUST TOLD ME THAT TESTING IS CRUCIAL HERE TO UNDERSTAND THE EBB AND FLOW AND TO UNDERSTAND WHERE IT IS COMING FROM WHEN YOU HAVE ONLY ONE MAJOR HOSPITAL, IT MAKES THE EMPHASIS ON THIS' FACILITY THAT MUCH MORE TOUGH THERE WAS A SUGGESTION THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS JOKING BUT IN A LOCAL NEWS INTERVIEW HE WAS ASKED DIRECTLY WHETHER HE ASKED FOR TESTING TO SLOW DOWN AND HE DIDN'T GIVE A DIRECT DENIAL RESPONSE IN ARIZONA, THERE IS TESTING THAT IS NEEDED

I WENT THROUGH THIS MYSELF, THIS WEEKEND THE FIRST PLACE I WENT THERE WAS A 55 HOUR WAIT AND THE NEXT FACILITY SAID THE TURNAROUND WOULD BE 10-12 DAYS ON THE NEXT FACILITY TOLD ME THERE WAS NO PCR COVID TEST, JUST ANTIBODY TESTING ON THE NEXT FACILITY SAID IT WOULD BE 7-10 DAYS NONE OF THE CVS LOCATIONS ACROSS THE GREATER VALLEY OVER THE WEEKEND HAD APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY THE IDEA AT ONE POINT THAT IF ANYBODY WANTS A TEST CAN GET IT IS FRANKLY NOT TRUE

I TALKED WITH PROVIDERS AND ONE OF THE MAJOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS, URGENT CARE PROVIDERS, AND HE SAID THAT IT IS ESSENTIAL HE WAS PUSHING THE BLAME ONTO THE TESTING LABORATORIES IN THE STATE SAYING IT IS THE RESPONSE TIME THAT THEY FRANKLY DO NOT HAVE THOSE TESTING LABORATORIES, THE MACHINES TO PROCESS AND OF TESTS HE SAID THEY HAVE URGENT CARE FACILITIES THAT DON'T HAVE THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, ENOUGH PROFESSIONALS ON STAFF, TO PROCESS THIS DEMAND THIS IS WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS COMING INTO ONE MORE POINT IN YUMA, THERE IS ONE WOMAN WHO IS THE FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH FOR TESTING HER TEAMS RUN FIVE CLINICS IN THE AREA AND THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 85% OF THE TESTING IN YUMA COUNTY AND RIGHT NOW, SHE HAS COVID SYMPTOMS AND SIX OF HER TEAM MEMBERS JUST TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID

SHE IS OUT OF THE GAME TO SUGGEST THAT SOMEHOW EVERYTHING IS ROSY AND DANDY AND TESTING IS AVAILABLE, JUST HERE IN YUMA AND ARIZONA, THEY STILL HAVE A LONG WAYS TO GO ON THIS >> THE PRESIDENT'S RALLY IN PHOENIX TOMORROW IS AT A MEGA CHURCH DO WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF TURN OF THE CAMPAIGN IS EXPECTING AND WHAT SORT OF SAFETY REQUIREMENTS WILL BE THERE? WILL PEOPLE HAVE TO WEAR MASKS? >> Reporter: THAT IS A BIG QUESTION MARK THIS IS A SEVERAL THOUSAND CAPACITY CHURCH IN NORTH PHOENIX AND THE CITY OF PHOENIX PUT IN, JUST THIS FRIDAY, A MASKED REQUIREMENT

WE ARE TOLD THAT THE TURNING POINT ACTION, A CONSERVATIVE GROUP, IS GOING TO BE PASSING OUT MASKS AND URGING FOLKS TO WEAR MASKS BUT, OBVIOUSLY, YOU'VE SEEN THIS PRESIDENT TURN HIS OWN HEAD TOWARD THE MASK WEARING THE CITY OF PHOENIX SAID THEY WILL ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO WEAR THE MASKS AND FINES CAN GO UP TO $250 UNDER THE CITY ORDINANCE IN THE LAST HOUR, THE CHURCH HOSTING THAT ORGANIZATION AND THE PRESIDENT TOMORROW, DREAM CITY CHURCH, THEY JUST POSTED A VIDEO ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE TELLING EVERYBODY THAT IT WAS FINE AND THEY WOULD BE PROTECTED TO COME IN BECAUSE THEY JUST INSTALLED WHAT THEY CALL NEW IONIZATION EQUIPMENT THAT THEY CLAIM WILL KILL OFF 999 THE FAN SENT OF THE COVID VIRUS IN THEIR FACILITY WITHIN 10 MINUTES

OF COURSE, THERE IS NO SUCH EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT THE SCIENCE IS REAL BUT THAT IS THE MESSAGE FROM THAT NORTH PHOENIX CHURCH TODAY TO ALL THE FOLKS COMING TO SEE THE PRESIDENT TOMORROW, THAT THEY HAVE NEW EQUIPMENT THAT WILL KILL 999% OF THE COVID VIRUS AT LEAST THE HEADS OF THE CHURCH, THE PASTOR OF THE CHURCH, THAT IS THEIR VIEW OF COVID AT THE MOMENT >>> VAUGHN HILLYARD, I'M IMPRESSED WITH YOUR REPORTING, ALWAYS IT'S NEVER MORE ON A DAY LIKE TODAY WHEN YOU WERE OUTSIDE AND 109 DEGREES WEARING A MASK AND COOL AS A CUCUMBER

SENATE DEMOCRATS AND HOUSE DEMOCRATS, FOR THAT MATTER, DON'T THINK THE SENATE REPUBLICAN BILL WAS NEARLY FAR ENOUGH AND DOESN'T DO ANYTHING CLOSE TO WHAT THE HOUSE BILL DOES IT DOESN'T BAN CHOKEHOLDS OR NO- KNOCK WARRANTS THE INFORMATION IS KEPT WITHIN POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND DEMOCRATS THINK IT IS A BAD BILL THEY HAVE A HARD DECISION DO THEY BLACKEN ON THE FRONT END AND BRING IT TO THE FLOOR ON WEDNESDAY OR DO THEY LET IT COME TO THE FLOOR AND DEBATE OVER THE NEXT WEEK OR SO AND TRY TO AMEND IT AND MAKE IT BETTER? THAT IS THE SINGLE BIGGEST QUESTION MARK OF WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT COMING UP FOR THIS WEEK AHEAD

WHAT DO DEMOCRATS DECIDE TO DO WITH THAT BILL, COME WEDNESDAY THEY ARE MEETING LATER ON TONIGHT TO DISCUSS IT BUT THERE SEEMS TO BE PRETTY SIGNIFICANT DIVISION AMONG DEMOCRATIC SENATORS I'VE TALKED TO TODAY SOME WANT TO MOVE FORWARD AND OTHERS SAY IT'S A FOOLS ERRAND AND THAT BILL DOESN'T COME CLOSE ENOUGH AND WE WILL TRY IT NEXT YEAR >> LET'S TALK ABOUT US

AS BEST I CAN TELL, THEY HAVEN'T FORMALLY REQUESTED HIS ATTENDANCE BUT MAY NEGOTIATE WITH HIM PRIVATELY SOMETIMES, THAT IS THE CASE THE REALITY IS THAT THE NOMINATION FOR HIS REPLACEMENT PROBABLY WON'T MOVE FORWARD UNTIL CONGRESS IS SATISFIED ON THE SENATE SIDE WHERE THEY ULTIMATELY HAVE TO CONFIRM BERMAN'S REPLACEMENT LINDSEY GRAHAM, CHAIRMAN OF THAT COMMITTEE, SAID HE'S NOT GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE BLUE SLIP PROCESS HE WILL LET THE DEMOCRATIC SENATORS PUT A VETO ON ANYBODY THEY DON'T LIKE IN THAT ROLE, AT LEAST FOR NOW, UNTIL THERE IS A BETTER ANSWER ABOUT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED HERE

KERRY SANDERS JOINS ME THERE ARE MORE CASES THERE THAN IN ORLANDO? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? >> Reporter: ALISON , IT'S CRAZY BUT THE FOLKS WHO LIVE AND WORK HERE ESPECIALLY THE MIGRANT FARMWORKERS SAY SOMEHOW THEY WERE OVERLOOKED BY THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT , TO PUT A FINE POINT ON THE STATISTICS THEY'VE TESTED HERE ABOUT 1 OF EVERY 25 FOLKS WHO ARE HERE IN IMMOKALEE WHO SHOWING CORONAVIRUS WHICH IS CERTAINLY SOME SORT OF STATISTIC THAT SCARES HEALTH OFFICIALS WHY THEY MISSED THE SOUL POPULATION IS UNCLEAR THEY SET UP HOURS AT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT THAT WERE IN CONTRAST TO THE COMMUNITY THEY WOULD SERVE

MIGRANT FARMWORKERS GET UP SUPER EARLY IN GET ONLY AFTER BEING IN THE FIELDS DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS RECOGNIZE THE PROBLEM HERE THEY NORMALLY ARE OVERSEAS IN WAR ZONES AND OTHER PLACES THAT HAVE HAD NATURAL DISASTERS IN A RARE CASE THEY HAD TO SET UP HERE IN IMMOKALEE, FLORIDA TO HELP ATTEND TO THE FOLKS IT'S ONLY JUST IN THE LAST WEEK THAT THEY HAVE FINALLY BEEN ABLE TO HAND OVER THAT RESPONSIBILITY TO THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT WHICH HAS ADJUSTED HOURS BUT FOR THE FOLKS WHO LIVE HERE AND ACROSS THE STATE, IF YOU LOOK AT THE STATISTICS WE'VE BEEN SEEING, LOOKING THAT GRAPH

THE NUMBERS GOING UP AND UP, LIKE YOU SAID MORE THAN 100,000 CASES NOW IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA THAT GRAPH, IT REALLY REFLECTS THE COMMUNITY ACROSS THE STATE , SLOWLY OPENING BEACHES, OPENING RESTAURANTS, OPENING BARS AND AS ALL OF THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE WE'VE SEEN THE NUMBERS PARALLELING THAT PROGRESS IF YOU ARE A BETTING MAN YOU WOULD SAY THERE IS A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP THE MEDICAL AUTHORITIES AND THE FOLKS REALLY ULTIMATELY WHO WERE THE POLITICAL LEADERS SAY IT'S NOT AN OBVIOUS DIRECT RELATIONSHIP BUT THERE'S SOMETHING GOING ON WHERE IT'S CAUSE AND EFFECT >> WHAT ARE THE FOLKS YOU BEEN TALKING WITH THEIR TELLING YOU ABOUT THE SPIKE, HOW THE TOWN IS HELPING THEM? >> Reporter: THE FOLKS HERE ARE DESPERATE

THEY LIVE IN MIGRANT CAMPS THEY ARE NOT REALLY IN WHAT YOU WOULD CALL A BIG CITY OF COMMUNITY THIS IS A SMALL AREA, IT'S 23 SQUARE MILES AND WHILE THERE ARE 24,000 PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE, A LOT OF THAT IS FARM TERRITORY THEY LIVE IN CAMPS AND SOME OF THE LARGE FARMS HERE, WHO EMPLOY THESE PEOPLE HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB OF HELPING THEM IN OTHER CASES THEY'VE GONE OFF RADAR NOT GIVEN MASKS, NOT GIVEN THE SPACE GOING OUT TO THE FIELD WHICH REQUIRES SOCIAL DISTANCING AND ULTIMATELY IN THE FIELD, NOT SPACED OUT

THE TRACTOR COMES IN THE GET TOGETHER IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TAKEN ITEM FROM THE FIELD, A VEGETABLE AND PLACE IT IN THE BOX THE BOX GOES ONTO THE TRACTOR EVERYBODY'S CLOSE TO EACH OTHER BECAUSE IT'S JUST ONE TRACTOR MOVING DOWNFIELD ULTIMATELY, THE FOLKS HERE TELL ME THEY ARE CONCERNED THEY WERE OVERLOOKED AND CONTINUE TO BE OVERLOOKED THIS IS WHAT ONE FARM WORKER TOLD ME

WILL THEY GET TESTED BEFORE THEY LEAVE FLORIDA? >> Reporter: SOME ARE AND SOME ARE NOT

DON'T OVERLOOK OUR COMMUNITY HAVE YOUR HEALTH OFFICIALS READY TO RESPOND BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, HAVE YOUR HEALTH TEAMS COME INTO OUR COMMUNITY AND CHECK US, RATHER THAN WAITING FOR US TO GO TO THEM THERE IS A DISCONNECT THE COMMUNITIES ARE NOT TIGHTLY KNIT IN THE SENSE THAT MIGRANT FARMWORKERS FEEL THAT THEY ARE A PART OF THE TOWNS THERE WORKING AT THEY CAN FEEL SEPARATED FROM THE HEALTH SERVICES THAT THEY SO DESPERATELY NEED AND ULTIMATELY, NEED TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS

>> I NEED TO MAKE SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING OR REQUIRE SOMEBODY TO WEAR SOMETHING IT'S AN OVERREACH >> Reporter: THE MAYOR OVERRULED THAT RESIDENCE MUST SQUARE MASKS AND PACES WITH MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE ARE FACED $25 FINE >> ANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW SOMEONE THAT'S BEEN IMPACTED OR BECAUSE THE ECONOMY HAS OPENED BACK UP THAT WE WON THE BATTLE WHEN IN FACT WE HAVE NOT WE HAVE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT COMMUNITY SPREAD AND REALLY IMPACTING THOSE FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS OF OURS , EVEN THOUGH WE MAY NOT HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS OR WE MAY NOT SHOW SYMPTOMS AND EVEN THOUGH WE MAY NOT THINK THERE IS AN ISSUE >> Reporter: THE INEQUALITIES GO THAT HAS BROUGHT TO LIGHT CANNOT BE FIXED IN A

OFFICIALS SAY WHAT YOU WEAR COULD SAVE LIVES >>> WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS ARE SENDING THE PRESIDENT AFTER HE CALLED FOR A SLOWDOWN IN CORONAVIRUS TESTING BECAUSE OF THE SURGE IN CASES >> YOU KNOW IT WAS TONGUE-IN- CHEEK,, ON NOW >> I DON'T KNOW THAT IT WAS TONGUE-IN-CHEEK >> HE SAID — SIMILAR THINGS FOR MONTHS

I THINK TESTING IS A SERIOUS ISSUE >> I WORK ON IT EVERY DAY >> I'M THE ONE THAT SAID — IT WAS A LIGHT MOMENT >> WE ARE 60 SECONDS INTO THE TONGUE-IN-CHEEK THING ASKED AND ANSWERED >> TODAY, THE PRESIDENT WAS ASKED IF HE DIDN'T SET TELL THE OFFICIALS TO SLOWDOWN TESTING HERE'S WHAT HE SAID

>> WE DID SLOW IT DOWN WE WOULDN'T SHOW NEARLY AS MANY CASES YOU ARE SHOWING PEOPLE THAT ARE ASYMPTOMATIC AND SHOWING PEOPLE THAT HAVE LITTLE PROBLEM YOUR SHOWING YOUNG PEOPLE THAT DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM BUT WE ARE DOING SO MUCH TESTING, 25 MILLION TEST >> Reporter: DID YOU ASK THEM TO SLOW IT DOWN? >> IF IT DID SLOW DOWN, I THINK WE ARE WAY AHEAD OF OURSELVES IF WE'VE DONE OUR JOB >> Reporter: SENIOR WHITE HOUSE REPORTER SHANNON PETIT JOINS ME

THE PRESIDENT DIDN'T REALLY ANSWER THE QUESTION HOW IS THE WHITE HOUSE EXPLAINING WHAT HE SAID?'S >> Reporter: HE DIDN'T ANY OF THE OPPORTUNITY TWO OPPORTUNITIES TO SAY AS HIS OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT HE DIDN'T MEAN IT, IT WAS A JOKE PRESIDENT HAS TALKED REPEATEDLY ABOUT THIS IDEA THAT THE NUMBERS OF CASES IN THE US LOOK WORSE BECAUSE YOU DO MORE TESTING

OF COURSE, OTHER COUNTRIES THAT DID TESTING EARLIER ON HAVE A LOWER NUMBER OF CASES BECAUSE THEY WERE ABLE TO QUICKLY IDENTIFY CASES AND HAVE PEOPLE QUARANTINED MORE THAN WE DID THAT DOESN'T HOLD UP WE'VE BEEN HEARING THE INCREASE IN FLORIDA HAS TO DO WITH AN INCREASE WOULD TESTING THAT DOESN'T APPEAR TO HOLD UP BECAUSE THE CASES ARE INCREASING FASTER THAN TESTING

THE ADMINISTRATION, KAYLEIGH McENANY AGAIN TODAY THING NO THE PRESIDENT DID NOT INTENTIONALLY CALL FOR TESTING TO BE SLOWED DOWN AND INSTEAD HINTED TO THE NUMBER TEST THE US HAS BEEN DOING OF COURSE NOW THE TESTING IS OUT OF HIS HANDS IT'S BEING DONE BY STATES AND DOCTORS OFFICES, INDIVIDUALS IN THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT

HE HAS NO CONTROL OVER SLOWING THE PROCESS DOWN AT THIS POINT >> THE WHITE HOUSE IS SCALING BACK AND EXPLAINING PROCEDURES FOR VISITORS, EVEN AFTER SIX OF THE CAMPAIGN STAFFERS IN TULSA TESTED POSITIVE OVER THE WEEKEND TWO MORE TODAY WHAT SAFEGUARDS IS THE WHITE HOUSE GETTING RID OF?>> Reporter: SINCE THE WHITE HOUSE SAID TWO OFFICIALS CLOSE TO THE PRESIDENT HIS VALET IN THE SPOKESPERSON FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT WERE INFECTED IN MAY, THEY STARTED DOING TEMPERATURE CHECKS EVERY VISITOR, STAFFER OR REPORTER WHO ENTERED THE WHITE HOUSE THERE WOULD BE WHITE TENTS OUTSIDE THE GATE WHERE YOU ENTER AND THEY TAKE YOUR TEMPERATURE AND ASK YOU IF YOU'VE HAD ANY SYMPTOMS

AS OF THIS MORNING, THOSE TENT AND THE STAFF WERE GONE PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO ENTER WITHOUT QUESTIONS THE WHITE HOUSE SAID STAFFERS AND VISITORS WHO ARE IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE PRESIDENT ARE STILL TESTED BUT THE REST OF THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO WORK ON THE WHITE HOUSE CAMPUS WHO ARE INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER THROUGHOUT THE DAY, IT'S TIGHT QUARTERS AND THEY AREN'T BEING TESTED THERE IS THE ISSUE OF MASKS BACK IN MAY AFTER THE TWO AIDES WERE INFECTED A MEMO WENT OUT REQUIRING EVERYONE IN THE WEST WING TO WEAR A MASK EXCEPT FOR WHEN THEY WERE AT THEIR DESK AND THEY SHOULD DO SOCIAL DISTANCING

THAT HAS GONE WAY AS OF LAST WEEK THE PRESS SECRETARY KAYLEIGH McENANY SAID MASKS ARE RECOMMENDED BUT NOT REQUIRED AND ICE RARELY SEE ANY MASKS AND IF I DO WANT THOSE THINGS HAVE GONE BY THE WAYSIDE I WILL KNOW WASHINGTON HAS ENTERED PHASE 2 AND THAT'S WHY THE WHITE HOUSE SAID THEY WERE GOING BACK BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN IN OFFICE OR STATIONER FACILITY OR SCHOOL WOULDN'T TAKE TEMPERATURES OF THEIR EMPLOYEES IF THEY WANTED TO >> SHANNON, IN THE SAME INTERNET THE PRESIDENT COMMITTED TO THE SECOND ROUND OF STIMULUS CHECK

DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT THAT COULD LOOK LIKE AND WHEN IT COULD HAPPEN? BUT NOT REALLY IT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD HAVE TO GO CAN CONGRESS THERE IS AN EXPECTATION CONGRESS WILL PASS OR TAKE UP A STIMULUS BILL THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS PEOPLE WANT THEY WANT MONEY FOR INFRASTRUCTURE AND THE PRESIDENT'S TALKING ABOUT A STIMULUS CHECK

I THINK IT'S WHETHER OR NOT THEY'LL BE ABLE TO GET TO THE PRESIDENT'S DESK I THINK A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH WHAT THE ECONOMIC PICTURE LOOKS LIKE WHEN WE GET TO JULY >> I WANT TO TALK ABOUT GEOFFREY BERMAN THE US ATTORNEY FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK WHO WAS FIRED THE PRESIDENT SAID SATURDAY HE WAS NOT INVOLVED

TODAY, PRESS SECRETARY KAYLEIGH McENANY SUGGESTED THAT HE WAS >> Reporter: HE WAS INVOLVED IN A SIGNOFF CAPACITY HE WAS NOT BUT YES HE WAS >> DO WE KNOW ANYMORE ABOUT HIS REMOVAL? >> Reporter: THERE WAS A PASSING OF THE HOT POTATO BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND BARR OVER THE WEEKEND WHERE BARR SAID THE PRESIDENT WANTS IT AND THE PRESIDENT SAID IT WAS BARR AND NORMALLY NOBODY WANTS TO TAKE OWNERSHIP FOR WHAT REALLY TURNED INTO WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN UNNECESSARY MANUFACTURED CRISIS WHY DID THEY HAVE TO REMOVE THE ATTORNEY IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK FOUR OR FIVE MONTHS UP FROM AN ELECTION ? IT'S A BIG QUESTION IN THE ONLY NEXT EXPLANATION WAS THAT THEY WANTED TO KEEP THE CHAIRMAN OF THE SEC IN GOVERNMENT AND THE ONLY JOB THEY COULD FIND FOR HIM WAS APPARENTLY PUTTING HIM IN CHARGE OF THE YOUNG LIKE EVEN THOUGH HE HAS NO PROSECUTORIAL EXPERIENCE

THERE ARE STILL QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY THEY REMOVED HIM AND HIS THE SENATE LINE TO TAKE THE CONFIRMATION UP AS WELL AS WHAT WAS BEHIND THIS AS WELL AS OTHER THINGS WE DON'T KNOW ANSWERS TO YET>> YES, IT SEEMS LIKE IT IT WAS NOT A QUIET WEEKEND THANK YOU FOR GETTING US UP TO SPEED >>> THE WHITE HOUSE PUSHING BACK IN REPORTS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WAS FURIOUS ABOUT THE MDC THAT HIS RALLY IN TULSA SATURDAY

JOHN JOINS ME NOW LET'S TALK ABOUT IT WHAT IS THIS DEEPER PROBLEM FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP? >> I THINK IT'S A MISMATCH OF HIS EXPECTATIONS OF WHERE HIS SUPPORT IS, FROM WHERE IT ACTUALLY IS YOU SAW A CAMPAIGN THAT SAID THEY HAD 1 MILLION SIGN UP SOMEWHERE COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF THE FACT THAT MOST OF THOSE SIGN-UPS , ALL BUT 6200 OF THOSE SIGN- UPS WERE NOT ACTUALLY GOING TO BE THERE THE PRESIDENT SAID THERE WAS A SILENT MAJORITY THAT BACK HIM

THE TRUTH IS THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF THAT A MINORITY OF THE ELECTORATE VOTED FOR HIM IN 2016 IN 2018, HIS PARTY GOT CRUSHED AT THE POLLS AND LOST CONTROL OF THE HOUSE IF YOU LOOK AT PUBLIC POLLING, HE IS APPROVAL RATING IS IN THE LOW 40s WE SAW AN INVISIBLE MINORITY

THERE ARE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAMES THAT GET MORE CROWD THAN HE GOT HE WAS BUILDING THIS UP TO AN END MILLION PEOPLE >> LET'S LOOK AT THE SPEECH ITSELF, ONE SENIOR ADVISOR SAID THERE WAS LESS FOCUS AND WAY TOO MANY RISK STORES THAT'S WHAT A LOT OF THE PRESIDENT'S 2016 PEACHES WERE LIKE WHAT IS THAT A PROBLEM NOW? >> Reporter: IT'S A PROBLEM NOW BECAUSE THERE'S SUCH LITTLE MARGIN FOR ERROR

THERE WAS ALSO IN 2016 , LITTLE MARGIN FOR ERROR FOR HIM NOW, HE NEEDS TO MAKE THAT CASE AGAINST JOB I YOU HEARD A SMALL PROPORTION OF HIS SPEECH AND DELIVERED SO LATE THAT I THINK MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TUNED IN AND PROBABLY TUNED OUT IT WAS LOST AMID EXCUSES AND FINGER-POINTING HAVE BEEN TELLING THAT LONG SORT OF STEM WINDER ABOUT WHY HE HAD DIFFICULTY DESCENDING THE RAMP AT WEST POINT AFTER DELIVERING THE COMMENCEMENT

IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR ANYONE TO SORT OF FOLLOW, IT WOULD SEEM, UNLESS YOU WERE SPECIFICALLY LIKE A LOT OF REPORTERS WHO WERE LOOKING FOR WHAT HE WAS GOING TO SAY ABOUT JOE BIDEN >> IN STARKE ABOUT THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE FOR THE POTENTIAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE JOE BIDEN SAID TODAY HE WILL AGREE TO NO MORE THAN THREE YOU HAVE A SENSE OF WHAT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN THINKS ABOUT THAT AND WHAT THEIR DESIRABLE CAMPAIGN AROUND THE DEBATE SCHEDULE LOOKS LIKE? >> Reporter: THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN HAS RESPONDED THEY'VE SAID THAT BIDEN IS AFRAID TO BE OUT IN PUBLIC, HE'S AFRAID OF DEBATING THE PRESIDENT

>>> THE NEW YORK CITY POLICE OFFICER SUSPENDED WITHOUT PAY AFTER A VIDEO SURFACED SHOWING HIM APPLYING WHAT APPEARS TO BE A JOKE ALL IN THE VIDEO WITNESSES SAY THE POLICE OFFICER IS CHOKING A MAN BUT THAT'S NOT CLEAR FROM THE BODY CAM A WARNING FOR OUR VIEWERS SOME OF THIS FOOTAGE IS DISTURBING IS % DISTURBING INVESTIGATIONS CORRESPONDENT TOM WINTER JOINS ME

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS INCIDENT?>> Reporter: BASICALLY, THE INCIDENT WHAT WE JURORS ON THE CELL PHONE VIDEO WAS 8:45 YESTERDAY SUNDAY MORNING AT THAT TIME OFFICERS WERE RESPONDING TO A REPORTED CALL OF THREE MALES THAT WERE APPARENTLY HARASSING ACCORDING TO THE CALL THEY RECEIVED, HARASSING PEOPLE WALKING BY THEY MAY HAVE BEEN THROWING THINGS OF THE POLICE OFFICERS INITIALLY SAID THEY RESPONDED TO THE SCENE AND THE PERSON WHO YOU SAW THERE IN THE APPARENT CHOKEHOLD, WAS SOMEBODY WHO THEY SAY MAY HAVE ATTEMPTED TO THROW A BAG OR ABJECT AT POLICE OFFICERS THEY ATTEMPTED TO ARREST A PERSON AND AS YOU SAW THE OFFICER THAT WAS INVOLVED, USED A CHOKEHOLD ON HIM BODY CAM VIDEO WAS RELEASED LATER IN E DAY , IT'S A LITTLE INCONCLUSIVE AS FAR AS WHAT YOU SEE ON THE BODY CAM VIDEO AS FAR AS WHAT WE SEE ON THE SCREEN, IT'S CLEARLY SHOWING THE OFFICERS RIGHT ON AND AROUND THE PERSON AND HIS NECK

THE BOTTOM LINE IS IT'S A BIG NO- NO FOR THE NYPD IT'S SOMETHING THAT WAS BANNED APPROXIMATELY 20 YEARS AGO, OVER YEARS AGO THE USE OF A CHOKEHOLD AND MAKING AN ARREST IT'S AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION IF THAT OFFICER WAS ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE SUSPECT AND WAS IN FEAR FOR HIS LIFE AND THEY WERE FIGHTING, IT WOULD NOT BE ILLEGAL TO USE THAT TECHNIQUE WHEN YOU ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING AN ARREST IT'S A DEFINITE NO DOUBT OBVIOUSLY WITH SOMEONE THAT RECEIVES AN AWFUL LOT OF ATTENTION WHEN ERIC GARNER DIED AT THE HANDS OF POLICE THOMAS SEVERAL YEARS BACK IN A CHOKEHOLD THAT WAS USED

THAT'S AN AUTOMATIC NO-NO AND OBVIOUSLY GOT THE ATTENTION OF THE TOP COP, THE POLICE COMMISSIONER IMMEDIATELY >> I'VE GOT A BUNCH OF QUESTIONS FIRST ABOUT, DO WE KNOW IF THE GUY IN THE VIDEO IS OKAY? THE ONE IN THE CHOKEHOLD AND THEN AFTER THAT TELL US HOW THE POLICE COMMISSIONER REACHED THE DECISION AND ARE THERE ANY CHARGES POSSIBLE? >> Reporter: THE PERSON IN THE VIDEO IS IDENTIFIED IN THAT PERSON DID NOT RECEIVE MEDICAL ATTENTION AT THIS POINT THEY ARE FINE

THEY WERE NOT HOSPITALIZED THEY WERE TREATED BY MEDICAL PERSONNEL AND RECEIVED MINOR INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THE INCIDENT THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS AS FAR AS THE POLICE COMMISSIONER AS I ALLUDED TO, REACTED FRANKLY IMMEDIATELY IN POLICING WORLD TERMS MEANING BY 6:29 LAST NIGHT THE NYPD ADVISED THE BODY WORN CAMERA WAS MADE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE AND BY 6:52 LAST NIGHT THE POLICE COMMISSIONER AGAIN A LITTLE OVER NINE HOURS AFTER THE INCIDENT, CAME OUT AND SAID THE PERSON WAS SUSPENDED THE OFFICER HAS BEEN SUSPENDED WITHOUT PAY THERE WOULD BE SUBJECT TO AN ONGOING INTERNAL AFFAIRS BUREAU INVESTIGATION, CHARGES ARE POSSIBLE

ON TOP OF THAT, THE OFFICER HAS HAD SEVERAL RUN- INS WITH THE LAW HIMSELF IN THE PAST INCLUDING BEING INVOLVED IN AN INCIDENT HE WAS ACQUITTED BY A JURY BY USE OF FORCE FOR A TEENAGER THIS IS SOMEONE WHO'S GOTTEN A LOOK AT BEFORE BY THE DEPARTMENT SO THE INTERNAL INVESTIGATORS, YOU CAN BET THEY ARE DONE WITH HIS INVESTIGATION CAN PUT CHARGES, DEPARTMENTAL CHARGES ARE POSSIBLE BECAUSE USE THE CHOKEHOLD THAT IS BEEN SO THAT WOULD BE EXCESSIVE FORCE FROM A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE IT APPEARS THAT WAY JUST FROM US WATCHING AND FROM FOLKS AT HOME I WOULD SAY THIS OFFICER, AT THIS POINT IS FACING A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TROUBLE ON THE LEGAL SIDE AS WELL AS THE ABILITY FOR HIM TO HAVE A BADGE AND GUN GOING FORWARD>> I'M SURE IT SOUNDS LIKE IT

ANOTHER ISSUE THE POLICE COMMISSIONER IS DEALING WITH IS A SPIKE IN SHOOTINGS >> THE FINAL COUNT WAS 53 SHOOTINGS THIS WEEK 70 SOMETHING PEOPLE SHOT PEOPLE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT IT WE HAD 100 SHOOTINGS IN MAY THE FIRST TIME WE HIT THAT NUMBER IN FIVE YEARS AND WE CANNOT STEP AWAY FROM QUALITY-OF- LIFE POLICING AND WE NEED TO SUPPORT OUR POLICE OFFICERS THAT ARE OUT DOING A VERY DIFFICULT JOB

>> IS THERE A REACTION FROM THE MAYOR TO WHAT'S GOING ON? >> Reporter: GUESS I THINK EVERYONE'S TAKING A HARD LOOK IT'S A THREE A 50% INCREASE IN SHOOTING THAT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE THAT'S JUST OVER THE LAST WEEK AND THAT'S A TREMENDOUS INCREASE FROM 12 INCIDENT LAST YEAR IT'S A TREND THAT'S BEEN ON THE RACE THAT STARTED AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR IT STARTED TO RAMP UP DURING COVID THERE WAS A BIT OF A DECLINE CITYWIDE CRIME WENT DOWN 37% OF THOSE FIRST WEEKS OF LOCKDOWN THAT HONEYMOON IS OVER WHEN IT COMES TO CRIME, BURGLARIES, ROBBERIES ON THE INCREASE AS WELL AS HOMICIDE IS GOING UP AS A RESULT IF THEY HAVE SHOOTINGS INCREASING

WE WILL SEE AN INCREASE IN HOMICIDES THE MAYOR AND THE COMMISSIONER HERE KIND OF AT DIFFERENT ENDS OF THE MAYOR SPEAKING ABOUT IT OBVIOUSLY KNOWS IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE YOU KNOW SOMETHING HAS GOT TO GIVE THE BLAME FROM A POLICE DEPARTMENT IS CLEAR THEY ARE LOOKING AT THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM THE NYPD SAID WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO JUST BAN THE ANTICRIME UNIT LAST WEEK IN AN INTERVIEW WITH LESTER ALL THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAYING EFFECTIVELY WE AREN'T GOING BACK TO THOSE DAYS WHERE WE ARE JUST STOPPING PEOPLE ON THE STREET

THAT WAS BAD RELATIONS FOR THE COMMUNITY AND THE KIDS IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S IMPACTED RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE MINORITY COMMUNITY FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME IT'S A THING POLICE OFFICERS AREN'T IN FAVOR OF THEY ARE GOING TO ADDRESS THAT DIFFERENTLY THEY ARE TRYING TO DO THAT THEY SAY THERE'S EVIDENCE OF THAT WE'VE SEEN WE'VE GOT NEW BAIL REFORM LAWS AND WE'VE GOT OTHER CHANGES IN THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM WHERE YOU'VE NOW ACCORDING TO THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAYS I'VE GOT 1000 PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT ON THE STREETS RIGHT NOW THAT ARE UNDER INDICTMENT ON GUN RELATED CHARGES

THE ISSUE THAT HE SAYS AS WE KEEP ARRESTING PEOPLE, THEY ARE RELEASED AND THEN THEY ARE BACK ON THE STREET AND CAUSING PROBLEMS NEARLY 250 PEOPLE THAT A BEEN RELEASED AS A RESULT OF CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS FROM RIKERS ISLAND HAVE GONE ON TO BE ARRESTED AN ADDITIONAL 453 TIMES ACCORDING TO REPORTING OF MY COLLEAGUE MELISSA RUSSO WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT DATA, IT POINTS TO TROUBLING ISSUES AS A SELECT CREWS OF PEOPLE IN POLICE SAY IN REALITY IT'S A SELECT GROUP OF PEOPLE, SMALL AMOUNT OF THE POPULATION THAT COMMITS MOST OF THE CRIME THAT'S HOW THINGS WORK THEY WANT TO TACKLE, THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CONSISTENTLY CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR THEM, THINKING THAT WILL DRIVE DOWN OVERALL CRIME AND BE BETTER FOR COMMUNITY RELATIONS

TIME WILL TELL BUT IT IS A TROUBLING TREND >> YES A SMALL GROUP BUT THOSE NUMBERS ARE TROUBLING THANK YOU, SO MUCH I % WANT YOU TO SEE % THAT THE BODY % WAS BROUGHT INTO THE CHURCH A % SHORT WHILE AGO % IN THIS >>> US

PEOPLE WERE SAYING WE THOUGHT THIS GOT UNDER CONTROL AND IT IS ADDING TO SOME OF THE CASES BUT MORE SO AS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE BRAZIL IN PARTICULAR THEY ARE BATTLING CORONAVIRUS THEY ARE WHAT WE WERE A FEW MONTHS AGO AND THIS IS NOT UNEXPECTED BECAUSE WE KNOW THE VIRUS ACTS LIKE SOME OTHER CORONAVIRUS WHERE THE COLD WEATHER ACCELERATED IT AND IN THE WINTER IT MAY BE WARMER THAN OUR WINTER STILL THE WINTERTIME FRAME IT IS CIRCULATING DOWN THERE

THE CONCERN IS WHAT IS ITULGOING T HAPPEN WHEN IT STOPS WH CIRCULATING SO MUCH AND MOVES UP HERE TO THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE COOLER WEATHER ESPECIALLY WHEN WE DON'T HAVE THIS UNDER OL% CONTROL AND WHEN THE SECOND WAVE HITS ALLISON, THAT IS THE BIG CONCERN RIGHT NOW >> I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE SECOND WAVE BUT RIGHT NOW 26 STATES HAVE SEEN UPTAKE IN CASES OVER THE LAST E TWO WEEKS WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW ABOUT E THE SPIKE IN OUR COUNTRY? >> SO WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SPIKES, THAT HING G YOU AND I TALKED ABOUT, ONCE THINGS REOPEN YOU WILL SEE SPIKES IN CASES S AND THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THE SPIKES DON'T TURN THTO OUTBREAKS AND WE ARE GETTING RIGHT ABOVE THE AVERAGE WHERE THEY ARE STARTING TO TURN TO OUTBREAKS AND THAT IS WHY YOU ARE HEARING THE GOVERNORS TAKE MEASURES SAYING WE MIGHT MANDATE MASKS AND CERTAIN THINGS IN BARS AND RESTAURANTS BECAUSE THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT CAN HAPPEN IN THE NEXT WEEK % OR TWO WHAT YOU ARE SEEING HAPPENING IS PLACES THAT HAVE OPENED UP EARLIER AND QUICKLY AND DID NOT PUT A LOT OF EMPHASIS ON THE THINGS THAT WE KNOW THAT HELPED THE MASKS AND THE SOCIAL DISTANCING

THOSE ARE THE ONES TO SEE MORE OF THE SPIKES IN CASES THE PLACES THAT OPENED UP SLOWER AND GENTLE OPENING THEY ARE NOT AS MUCH BUT RE WHAT YOU WILL FIND OVER THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO MORE OF THE THINGS MANDATED BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE NOT DOING WHAT WE KNOW WORKS FOR THE IN MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING AND SO NOW THE GOVERNOR HAS TO STEP IN D CIAND SAY WE NEED TO DO THIS BECAUSE E THAT IS THE ONE THING TO KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL AR ALLISON >> MORE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE E TESTING POSITIVE W IN SOME OF THESE HOT SPOTS DO WE KNOW WHY AND HOW CONCERNED ARE WE ABOUT THIS? >> IT SEEMS LIKE THE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE TESTING IN POSITIVE BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO RESTAURANTS AND PARSE AND NOT WEARING MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING THOSE THAT ARE OLDER 65 AND ABOVE WITH PREEXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS THEY HAVE GOTTEN WORD TO BE CAREFUL

ESPECIALLY THE ONES IN HOT SPOTS THAT HAVE SEEN FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS BEING TAKEN BY CORONAVIRUS THEY ARE STAYING ARH HOME THE CONCERN IS THAT THE YOUNGER ONES GOING OUT, IF THEY GET IT AND DON'T KNOW % THEY HAVE IT CAN SPREAD IT TO THE ONES MORE VULNERABLE AND THAT'S THE BIG CAUTION HERE, ALLISON >> DOCTOR, LET'S TALK SECOND WAVE WE HAVE HEARD THAT THERE WILL BE A SECOND WAVE OF COVID-19 IN THE FALL

THE PROBLEM IS THE FIRST WAVE DOES NOT GET FI UNDER CONTROL AND A SECOND WAVE HAPPENS YOU CAN GET THE TWO WAVES COINCIDING AND THAT'S GETTING A BIGGER WAVE LIKE HE DESCRIBED A WAVE OR FOR EVIDENCE % FIRE ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT KEEPS ON PERPETUATING AND IT MAY NOT BE WE GET A RESPID BUT THE TWO COME IN ST TOGETHER THIS IS NOT UNAVOIDABLE BUT THE DIRECTION THAT THINGS ARE GOING AND WE KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO EEDO TO HELP OUT AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO DO, ALLISON THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE

>>> DR JOHN, YOU E I LET GO BECAUSE, WE SAY IT OKALL THE TIME IT BEARS REPEATING WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE BE DOING AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO LETRY TO KEEP THESE WAVES AS Y LIMITED AS POSSIBLE AND KEEP OURSELVES AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE? >> EVERYBODY SHOULD DO THIS WEAR MASKS AND DO SOCIAL DISTANCING AND DON'T GATHER IN LARGE CROWDS
