during a pandemic was a challenge in many parts of the united states. ♪ the pres!d+ and first lady did host a traditional celebration without much social distancing. but in his few remarks about covid-19, the president again downplayed its impact on the country. instead, his fury has " directed at scenes like-gthis. several hundred people cheering here as a statue of christopher columbus in baltimore was pulled down and tossed into the harbor. the fourth of july is a time to celebrate how americans came together to gain independence,e but that is not theq tone president trump is using to mark the holiday. cnn's jeremy diamond has more about it from the white house.e1 >> reporter: well, on fourth ofd

marxists, the anarchists, the xd agitators, the looters, and people who in many instances have absolutely no clue what ok they are doing.xdxd >> reporter: now, president trump on saturday also said that we will not allow anyone to divide our citizens by race or background. those remarks fairly remarkable coming from this president, oneó who started his campaign by e1 decrying mexican immigrants as c criminals and rapists, a w3 president who called for a total ban on muslims entering the u.
2:04 am
statues of founding fathers as 1 he claimed in this speech. instead he's focused on protecting confederate namesakes and monuments. that's been the heart of the president's focus over the last week. yet now he's trying to recast that battle, but certainly thes3 remarks from the president on the fourth of july where america is facrg the crises, divisive and not unifying for this country. jeremy diamond, cnn, the white house. the coronavirus has scarcelk been mentioned in president trump's recent speeches, though he did falsely claim that 99% oó all cases are, quote, totally harmless. there is no medical evidence to1 support that. but as far as mr. trump is concerned, the pandemic is under control. >> we have made a lot of progress, our strategy is moving along well. it goes out in one area and rears back its ugly face in another area. but we learned a lot.e1çó
2:05 am
we learned how to put out the flame. >> even if the president doesn't acknowledge it, the coronavirus is still a major threat from coast to coast. at least 36 states are reporting a rising number of cases. florida, arizona, and texas all posted record numbers of new infections this week, as did california. take a look at this chart. hospital beds in the state areo filling up to capacity. the spike in cases prompted officials to curtail july 4th celebrations. paul vercammen is in huntington beach with a look at how the virus changed one big holiday tradition.e1e1 >> reporter: partçó of the strategy to stop the spread of coronavirus shut down beaches in southern california. this is huntington beach, ourth of july weekend, people would be layingk down their towels and they would be right next to each other. enjoying a day at the beach and
2:06 am
later on a huge fireworks display. the fireworks display canceled. they pat)táu$ of july parade here, canceled. they a smaller community parade where they weave through and by people's homes. the idea again is to have all these counties in lockstep with each other and not having the beaches open. santa barbara, ventura, los e1q angeles, and orange county shut down their beaches, san diego did not.jf but as they -- the police spokeswoman said here, important that four of those five did shut down. >> we're not the only one that is open. we're not the only one closed. so the message is there. we're closing down, but just fo3 a few days, let's try to flatten the curve again and make sure we can stay safe. >> reporter: so good vibrations up and down the california coast. >> big time. let's keep it chill.e1e1 >> repor2-úiájj$p' eerie sight as huntington beach is shut down and some people in southern california getting creative. i came upon a group of three sunbathers in manhattan beach and what they did was they laid their towels down on a e1
2:07 am
cement walkway, they said they just needed to get in their rays. california at times is a source for unique innovation. reporting from huntington beach, paul vercammen, back to you.g >> thank you, paul. that was innovation. u florida is one of the biggest u.s. hot spots now, reporting yet another record number of new cases on saturday. and surpassing the worst day for new cases in new york. but that's not stopping some people from celebrating the holiday as they always do. they're hitting the beach, which ise1 open in one area. here's boris sanchez in clearwater.e1 >> reporter: ae of florida.5a more than 11,000 new coronavirus cases reported here in the last1 24 hours. that means that in the first three days of july, thehgáate has seen over 30,000 new covid cases. to give you some perspective, the state of florida saw about 100,000 new cases in the month 1
2:08 am
of june alone. local leaders, the state's governor ron desantis, leaving r 1zejt)(rals to determine what restrictions theç wanted to put in place. on the western part of the statf outside tampa at clearwater beach, people were coming all day to enjoy the waves, play sports, enjoy the sand and surf as well. there are signs out warning people to try to stay socially d distant at six feet apart from people who do not share the same household, also asking groups t1 not congregate, groups of ten or more are not allowed here. though throughout the day we did see groups of much larger than ten people enjoying the beach. i spoke to one woman named kathy who told me she moved from alabama to florida in the middls of the pandemic, she says that she's concerned about the risk of coronavirus, but she wanted 1 to enjoy a holiday weekend on the beach. here's more what she shared with hink we all should wear masks and protect ourselves as berí#we can, you know, and xd
2:09 am
keep, you know, keep the social distancing going on and, you know, that's it.xd if we're going to get it, we're going to get it. i'm happy to be here.xd i know the numbers are going up. enjoying life?s, but why4stop e >> reporter: the question is what the numbers will do two weeks from now.e1 after the memorial dayx.v ñ when we saw so many large crowds incubation period for the coronavirus, so all eyu on the numbers about 14 days from now. boris sanchez, cnn, clearwater beach, florida. it may be surprising for many is that while the coron lirus is spiking in the u.s., the fatality rate right now is steady. of course, that could change. health officials saye1 there ara number of reasons why the death rate may fluctuate.
2:10 am
>> younger people tend to die less, our median age in the hospital has dropped from about 62 to about w348. younger people are less likely to die. the other thing is we also have gotten better at treating the disease, not much better, but somewhat better. and the increase in testing. in some states like florida, you see an increase inñi deaths ase well as increase infá cases. >> we're going to turn now to a situation developing in ok australia. the australian medical association ist( calling for a pause in easing coronavirus restrictions. that is because of a spike in new cases in melbourne. there were nearly 200 new cases reported in victoria state over the past two days. and officials had put thousands ofx÷ u1% housing residents on what they're calling aok hardfá lockdown. >> this is not about punishment. this is about protection. we cannot have a cohort of
2:11 am
people, many ofw3 whom, not all but many of whom in poor health to start with, we can'tt( have this virus spread.  to contain the virus and that's why staying in your unit, staying in your flat, is absolutely essential. >> let's talk more about it. joining me now from melbourne to talk about it is dr. tony bartoni, president of the australian medical association. we appreciate you coming on. i want to ask you, what is particularly alarming about this outbreak in these housing units? >> good morning, natalie. thank you for the opportunity to talk to you this morning. >> of course. >> this -- these óomoutbreaks aa significant concernñi because the virus, in first wave, between the months of late february, right through toe1 ju, we effectively managed to -- the first wave of covid-19. we had some 103 cases of
2:12 am
reported fatalities. unfortunately. and just under 8,000 casesw3 of now to the lastc week or two, i victoó , we have seen a significant spike after a number cases, we're nowb seeintz the spikes that we're seeing. and in particular, in the facility where -- in this housing block oflp houses -- hoe 3,000ok residents of thew3 -- o1 nine facilities. that is a large group of lower soc socioeconomicxd residents in cle proximity, with many chronic illnesses as is part of their makeup and that puts them very susceptible to becoming infecte. having been identified that there ajet some -- a number of people testing positive in those
2:13 am
units, which have common entrye points, and elevators to the floors in terms of takingzv th up to those. andzve1 that's why thee1 premi the authorities have put in a hard t(lockdown measure on thos units. >> one can understand, because this is importante1 that it be contained because there could be risks if this isn't controlled, that itu could spread beyond ts city, to some areas of australia. >> well, as a nation, we had a reallyi] good community driven response to thee1 myures that have seen us achieve the results t we're at the stage where a month ago we started relaxing a number of the fárestrictions. we had various states have had harder border lockdown measures and achieved even faster results and have started thee1 relaxati at a faster rate than the rest of the country. but clearly what you're seeing
2:14 am
in melbourne, victoria at the t( moment, is an example of when this suppression strategy that weñrxdfáe1 -- that we're utiliz terms of our response to covid-19, the suppression strategy means that we have to learn to co-habitate and live with the virus as part of the problem in the community until we get a vaccine. we can't stay locked down ìc% we need to get back to some form of economic and social activity. so we need to co-exist, respect the virus and understand that we have to live in a different covid-19 world where we have to do the social distancing, where we have thew3 importance on cou ing hands and staying away from work or school with any symptoms. and, of course, we're testing enormous amount of thei] population, something like about 2.7 million australians have had a covid-19 e1test, that's almos one in ten e1australians, and
2:15 am
that's really underpinning our ability to search out and seek anyq new cases, cases, andeq$r'd isolate them and contact trace, which is the premise of the foundingçó principles of suppression strategy at the moment. until we get a virus, that's the new world we have to live in. >> right. and we're seeing similare1ñi situations here in the united states, we're seeing spikes in so many states and underlying problem is people not heeding the advice of health officials. so what we're seeing in melbourne kind of represents a starkt( ñrreality, like we're sg here, to howxd quickly things c change with this pandemic. >> and that is true.e1 obviously we'rexd unfortunately the scale and the magnitude of the numbers in your country, especially as youñi celebrate yr july 4th holiday weekend is a sobering reminder of indeed the
2:16 am
power and theñr -- and the enormous force of this virus can wreak havoc for the community. we have seen a situation where we got on top of it, we don't want to see ituzz really grab holdt( again. we have the second highest number of cases reported in the state, since the outbreak first started to take records, and, of course, we're really concerned and we're very worried and really the message that we're trying to say to thee1 communit is one that the rest of the other public authorities around the world arefá saying and thats that the importance of those measures, those e1guidelines, a dealing and respecting the virus and minimizing thee1 possibilit of spread. k a survival of the fittest, it is a survival of those thatñi actually heed the message and put into place what they needt( to do. $u$is development in melbourne and we hope it goes well. dr. tony bartoni, thank you for
2:17 am
your time. we appreciate youri] insights. >> thank you very much. >> sure. up next here, england's much loved pubs have officially reopened. and it is pretty much like any york, excuse me, there in london, littleñi room and lots people. we're live in london next. "

pandemic, a health crisis, an economic crisis one1 a scale we haven't seen in decades respond very poorly because of his leadership and it is show up in the polls.çó so president trump is doubling down on his racist narrative, he's looking to probably a hard core of his base to mobilize them, to energize them, but natalie, it is not working. if you look at the data that is coming out on, for example, the number of americans who have engaged in the protests of -- xd surrounding the black lives movement after the brutal killing of george floyd, people are estimating between 15 and 26 million americans have
