7:02 am
>> tampa bay buccaneers and tom brady going to super bowl lv. >> yep, tom brady booking a trip to his tenth super bowl, the oldest qb to ever do it, beating the green bay packers and aaron rodgers. the bucs ready to face the defending champs, the kansas city chiefs, and superstar quarterback patrick mahomes.e an for the epic matchup, and who will be coming out on top? we certainly do say good morning, america. hope everybody had a wonderful weekend. less than two weeks from now, that matchup, tom brady, yes, his tenth super bowl. patrick mahomes, two for two, two in a row for him. take a look. here's what tom looked like. this was his first super bowl appearance. and what did mahomes look like that year?
7:03 am
>> oh, wow. >> just to give you an idea. the g.o.a.t. and the kid. >> this will be a super bowl, like we can all imagine, due to the pandemic. we'll talk about how it's going to go down. but first, we have a lot of news to get to, starting with the race to vaccinate americans. people lining up at mass vaccination sites across this country, from here in new york to a 24/7 site in phoenix, arizona. >> nearly 22 million doses administered. and there are some encouraging signs this morning. we're starting to see cases decline in parts of the country. hospitalizations are the lowest in more than a month. dr. anthony fauci is going to join us in just a few moments. but first, let's go to eva pilgrim at a vaccination site in jones beach, new york with the latest on those danger covid variants surfacing and take a new step. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning,
7:04 am
robin. yeah. there are just not enough vaccines for all the people who want them. i want you to take a look at our drone footage. this mass vaccine site in jones beach is expected to open at 8:00 a.m. so many people say they'll show up at whatever time available to get their vaccine. the morning, as concerns intensify as those covid variants rise, predominantly from overseas, the u.s. will begin restricting travel from south africa, banning most non-u.s. citizens who have recently traveled to the country from entering the states, as well as re-imposing the travel ban for brazil, the uk, ireland, and 26 countries across europe in an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus. the move comes athe v which scientists say is likely more contagious and possibly more dangerous has already been reported in at least 22 states. >> even if the virus ended up being anymore deadly, the fact
7:05 am
that it's more contagious, it will infect more people. it's going to cause more hospitalizations and a lot more deaths. the fact it is more contagious is a real source of concern i think for all of us. >> reporter: this weekend, the u.s. crossing yet another milestone -- more than 25 million covid-19 cases reported here since the start of the pandemic. according to the covid tracking project, last week, an average of two americans tested positive every second, with one death reported every 30 seconds. the push to get vaccines to people, urgent, but slow. finally passing the milestone 20 million shots administered announced this weekend, a number the previous administration had anticipated to reach in december. some states now temporarily canceling appointments saying they don't have supplies in stock. millions of doses are being delivered throughout the country every week, but in new york city, citi field, the home of the mets, was supposed to open as a mass vaccination site this weekend. city officials telling abc news that plan has been delayed due to the shortage of vaccine on the federal level. the new cdc director frustrated
7:06 am
by the passdown she was given by the previous administration. >> i can't tell you how much vaccine we have, and if i can't tell it to you, then i can't tell it to the governors, and i can't tell it to the state health officials. if they don't know how much vaccine they're getting not just this week, but next week and the week after, they can't plan. >> reporter: and more vaccine could be on the way. johnson & johnson is expecting their phase 3 trial results some time in the next few weeks. they could be before the fda for emergency use authorization by mid february. some other the good news, the number of covid cases across the country is slightly down and we're now hearing that the governor of california is expected to announce that he's lifting that stay-at-home order there. officials say with all this positive news, though, we have to stick to those basics. we're not out of the woods yet. wear your mask, social distance and make sure to wash your hands. george? >> thanks, eva. we're joined by the president's chief medical adviser, dr. anthony fauci.
7:07 am
dr. fauci, thanks for joining us again this morning. so we've seen this announcement of the travel ban from south africa. re-imposing travel bans to other areas, but at this point are they really going to do any good? >> i believe so, george. i think that was a prudent decision. because right now, even though our surveillance isn't as comprehensive as we'd like it to be, it does not appear that this particular mutant is in the united states, though it may well be. but if you have a free inflow of people from a country in which that mutant is clearly dominant, and i talk to my colleagues often in south africa. it clearly is dominant there. i believe the travel ban will be important, in addition to having a situation where anybody coming into the country now is going to be required to have a negative test before they even get on the plane, when they land, to have a degree of quarantine as well as another test. so i believe it was prudent even
7:08 am
though it's never perfect as always. there's a possibility, and even a likelihood of some slippage, but i think the ban which was discussed very intensely by the group was the right decision. >> let's talk about these variants. you're concerned about the south african variant. not sure if it's here yet. we've gotten some evidence over the last several days that the united kingdom variant is actually more deadly. explain what we're finding. >> yeah, at the beginning, george, when it was first studied intensively in the uk, the uk scientists made a statement which was clearly obvious -- that this was more easily spread, i.e. more transmissible. when they looked at it, it did not look like on a case by case basis it was actually more virulent is the word they used, more likely to make you seriously ill or kill you, when they looked at the data they became convinced that it is, in fact, a bit more virulent making
7:09 am
it more difficult when you get to the point of serious disease and even death. so i believe their data. i haven't seen all of it, but from what i've heard i believe the data. >> we're still seeing shortages of the vaccine all across the country at this point. i know the president has issued a series of orders that are designed to increase vaccine production. what more can be done right now? >> well, i think it's exactly what the president is doing. we've got to pull out all the stops. we've got to find out -- you know, there's a lot of disparities that you see, and discrepancies that you see. for example, george, you may call up one group locally, the vaccine isn't getting into people's arms. it's available, you make a call to another group and say, we don't have enough vaccine we have people lined up. we have to get into the trenches at that local level and figure out how to get it there and
7:10 am
figure out what's going on and how to fix it because president biden has said right from the beginning he's going to pull out all the stops, if things aren't working well, instead of blaming people we're going to try to fix it and jump all over it. that's what we're doing. it's going to take a little time, and you're going to still hear about people who are not getting vaccines wanted as well as vaccines that aren't on the shelf, and hopefully in a short period of time, that's going to get corrected. >> we got 25 million cases over the last year. you've been under a lot of pressure over the last year. what's the number one change you've noticed between president biden -- to president biden from president trump. >> it was very clear, george, and it was articulated multiple times that the president has said it publicly, but just in a private session, sitting down with him and the medical team, he's very serious. he said, science is going to rule. we're going to go by the facts. we're going to go by the evidence. we're going to go by the data. if something is wrong, like i just said, we're going to just try to fix it and we're going to pull out all the stops to get our arms around this. getting the vaccine situation on track is his highest priority. so i mean, the idea that the president himself sits down with
7:11 am
you and says, i want science to rule. go out there and do everything we need to do to get it done, just is really very, very refreshing. >> you faced personal threats over the past year. i was horrified to read that you had one incident you opened up an envelope and feared you were poisoned. >> yeah, that was very traumatic george, but more so for my wife and children. just really, really, were horrified by that because for awhile there, you know, i said in a "times" article there were only three possibilities. either it was a hoax which i was hoping and praying it was. it was anthrax which would require me taking 30 or 60 days of cipro or it was ricin, which means i was dead. i didn't know until the fbi and the hazmat people figured out what it was. it was a very difficult period. >> we're glad you're okay. dr. fauci, thanks for your time this morning. >> good to be with you, george.
7:12 am
>> he has been such a steady presence through such a terrifying year. >> certainly. all right, george. thank you. we're going to move on now to capitol hill, and that major step in the impeachment trial of former president trump. within hours, the house will send the article of impeachment to the senate setting the process in motion. rachel scott has all the details. >> reporter: this morning, with just hours until the house sends the article of impeachment to the senate, democrats outraged over new allegations that former president donald trump considered using his own justice department to try and overturn the election. >> as if it's not enough that he sent an angry mob down the mall to invade the capitol. >> reporter: "the wall street journal" reports that trump wanted the department to sue states directly in the supreme court, and when that plan failed, "the new york times" says he allegedly plotted to remove his acting attorney general and replace him with a trump loyalist who was willing to help him fight president joe biden's victory in georgia. >> it goes to his motive to stay
7:13 am
in power, his intent to do that, to call his supporters, to radicalize his supporters at all costs. >> reporter: the justice department has not commented on those reports, and trump hasn't addressed these specific allegations against him. the former president is already charged with incitement of insurrection after he urged his supporters to march to the capitol. >> fight like hell. >> reporter: that impeachment trial now scheduled to start the week of february 8th. >> we'll move forward with the trial. it will be fair, but it will move at a relatively fast pace. >> reporter: democrats would need at least 17 republicans to vote to convict trump, but a growing number are now blasting the trial before it even begins. >> i think the trial is stupid. i think it's counterproductive. >> reporter: tomorrow senators will be sworn in as jurors, but both sides have agreed to delay that trial for two weeks. it'll give democrats a chance to push through joe biden's cabinet picks and trump more time to prepare his defense, george. >> yes, it's a complication for biden's agenda.
7:14 am
rachel, thanks very much. president biden is pushing hard on a number of fronts as he enters his first full week as president. he's pushing forward on his buy america plan. senior white house correspondent mary bruce has the details. >> reporter: president biden is continuing his blitz of executive actions. today he'll try to fulfill that campaign promise by signing an order encouraging the federal government to, quote, buy american and purchase goods and services from u.s. companies. now the law already requires this, but businesses have been frustrated by loopholes that still exist. this order will try to clamp down on all of that. we also learned from sources that the president will be signing an executive order lifting the pentagon's ban on transgender people serving in the military. that controversial policy that president trump put in place a few years ago. biden has long supported reversing this, and we've learned that the new defense secretary lloyd austin who also supports this, will be on hand for the signing, george. >> the president is getting some pushback on his covid relief plan from republicans saying it's just too big. >> reporter: george, he's running into some roadblocks on the hill already. the president has been adamant
7:15 am
he wants bipartisan support for this, but republicans and even some democrats are balking at the nearly $2 trillion price tag. even more moderate members like susan alcoh susan collins and mitt romney saying it's just too big, especially since they just passed this package last month and much of that has yet to be spent. biden has to walk a very fine line here. if he gives republicans too many concessions that could put off some democrats. with that nearly even split in the senate, biden has very little wiggle room here, george. >> mary bruce, thank you very much. robin? george, now to that billion-dollar mystery. who won that massive mega millions jackpot? only one winning ticket sold and it was in michigan. will reeve joins us now with more. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it literally is that billion-dollar ticket. we know where it was sold. now we're left to wonder, who bought it? this morning, it's a megamillions mystery in michigan. >> they don't have the option ts
7:16 am
multi-state game, so they do have to make their identity known. >> reporter: the winning ticket worth $1 billion. the third largest jackpot in u.s. history was sold at this grocery store in novi, a small town outside detroit. >> in general, any city says, having that ticket bought means more hustle and bustle into my city. it's the luck of the draw, and we got lucky. >> reporter: the lucky ticketholder might stay anonymous for awhile. >> the winner has one year from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. with this amount of money they're probably gwhen they do >> reporter: the odds of holding that winning ticket, 1 in 303 million. the check of that lump sum is nearly $740 million. if you're holding that ticket right now and don't know what to do, listen up. >> first, sign the ticket. that's important. put your name on the back of
7:17 am
it. second, keep it in a very safe place. whether that's a safe in your home, you put it in a safe deposit box, put it somewhere that it's going to be safe and secure. >> reporter: there are only seven states where winners can stay anonymous, one of them south carolina. that's where the largest single prize was ever awarded, $1.5 billion in 2018 and now we wait and see who won in michigan. i personally, guys, would take the lump sum because it's a whole lot of money. >> you think? thank you, will. >> will is getting very wise. >> thank you, will. we're following a lot of other headlines this morning including -- how about that super bowl matchup? come on now. tom brady and the bucs versus patrick mahomes and the chiefs. plus, we'll celebrate larry king. his children sharing memories, and what they call their amazing father. we'll check in with that this morning. then, how these dogs may he from covid. bufi >> reporter: good morning, amy. we're tracking three storms that
7:18 am
cover much of the country, this impacting part of the southwest, with heavy snow across arizona. this is between phoenix and flagstaff. tough go over there on i-17, and just over the border in new mexico. this is the continental divide of new mexico where i-40 was shut down. i-94 just outside detroit, snow squalls there creating some havoc. let's track storm number one, and really taking shape now across the central part of the country. this is going to be chicago's heaviest snow of the season. could see six inches of snow there. omaha, des moines, you'll see it as well. snow and icy conditions heading into philly and baltimore during the day tomorrow, and then some snow getting into new york and up 95. not a lot of accumulation across the northeast, but certainly enough to keep things on the slick side and another storm directly behind that. time now for your select cities sponsored by target.
