>> unfortunately, this fire's affected a lot of first responders. six of the seven volunteer firefighters in barry creek california lost their homes, including the chief. and so, luna and i did what we do. we sourced a couple of delivered one to chief reed rankin 37. >> just can't say thank you enough. i deeply appreciate this. at least we got somewhere to be. >> he loves his community. >> it's huge. i mean, i just -- it's huge. >> a couple thousand of his neighbors were left homeless. the chief is still out there every day on the line fighting the fire. >> i just have to get everything done out here, get people back and then i can start trying to figure out what i'm going to do.
i'm going to stay here and i'm going to rebuild. >> for woody's full story, go to cnn heros.com right now. and thank you for watching, everyone. our coverage continues. this is cnn breaking news. >> hello and welcome to "cnn newsroom." i'm ken brunhuber. for the first time since the pandemic began, more than 80,000 americans were diagnosed with covid-19 in a single day. not only is that a record, it easily eclipses the worst days of july when cases topped 70,000 a day. this upward trend has been building steadily since early september and the u.s. surgeon general warns that the country can expect new daily records in the coming days as the virus spreads unchecked from maine to california.
only 13 states, you can see them there on the map in yellow are holding steady compared to last week and nebraska, arkansas and mississippi are showing modest improvement. now, this new surge is putting an enormous strain on america's health care system. at least eight states are reporting their highest hospitalizations to date. for the first time since mid-august, the number of people being treated for covid has topped 40,000 nationwide. unless behavior changes quickly, forecasters say the u.s. death toll could reach 1 million by the end of february. and now the country's top infectious disease officials says it may be time to make face masks mandatory. >> and everyone agrees that this is something that's important and they mandated and and everybody pulls together and says, we're going to mandate it, but let's just do it, i think that would be a great idea to have everybody do it uniformly.
and i get the argument, well, if you mandate a mask, then you're going to have to enforce it and that will create more of a problem. well, if people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it. >> two converging issues threaten to spread the coronavirus. indoor activities brought on by colder weather and the upcoming holidays when friends and family traditionally get together. dr. fauci says people need to be more vigilant than ever. >> as we go deeper into the colder months of the fall and winter, the activities are going to have to be done indoors and that's a problem. that is why i say we need to double down on the kind of public health measures we've been talking about so long. whenever i stress the public health measures, people think that that means we're going to
shut down. it doesn't mean that. it means there are some fundamental things you can do, universal mask wearing, keeping a distance, avoiding crowded areas particularly indoors and wash your hands as often as you possibly can. they sound very sirchl, but we're not uniformly doing that. so that is the reason why as much as i can plead with the american public to please take these things seriously. we can turn it around. >> thursday night, american voters were able to see the stark darchbss betweifferences biden and donald trump regarding the campaign. take a listen as they addressed the issues of face masks. >> you've got to lead your life. some people want to stay in and
do it. do it. some people agree with me and some people -- but if you want to stay in, if you would to do what you're doing, do it. if you want to get out and be careful and socially distance and all of the things, there are a lot of things you can do. but some people want to stay in and that's okay. >> go to every governor and urge them to issue mask mandates in place. as president, i'll mandate mask wearing in all federal buildings and all interstate transportation because masks save lives, period. positive developments for two covid-19 trials in the u.s. astrazeneca and johnson & johnson paused their trials when
there were illnesses. but the preparations to restart tests are under way, but couldn't say when the trial would resume. to discuss the resurgence of coronavirus we're seeing in the u.s., let's talk to claire. thank you very much for being here with us. here in the u.s., the number of people hospitalized with the coronavirus has risen by 40%. the president is trying to convince us that the country is rounding the corner, when that is clearly not the case. from a public health perspective, what kind of denial does that reality have on a country and its residents to
fight the virus? >> i think it's concerning. if the president is putting out messages that people don't have to worry about it any more and that it's almost over, that's sending the wrong message. in europe, we're in a second peak. in the u.s., numbers are going up, as well, as you said, so we need people to take it seriously, wear your mask, work at home where you can. all these things add up and the evidence around this is increasing every day. so to have a political leader saying you don't need to do these things, it's a dangerous precedent. the numbers will go up even further. >> we mentioned masks. dr. fauci says it may be time to call for a mask mandate. is there any evidence that mask
mandates generally work? >> so i think anything we can do to get people to wear more masks is a good thing. it hasn't been politicized as much in europe as it has in the u.s. why not get people to listen and take this seriously? we know wearing masks reduces the transmission. why wouldn't you do everything within your power to reduce transmission of this disease and stop people dieing? >> yeah. as you said, much of had the is political. the cases are rising here. theorizing in the uk where you are. we're seeing field hospitals, national shutdowns, curfews, school closings. how did we get here again? >> that is a really good question. we always knew there were going
the be second waves as we started to come out of lockdown. lockdown is the silver bullet. lockdown places restrictions. a lot of places didn't use the last six months build up and isolation to allow us to go back to living normally. in the ideal world, you're going to ask those people who have got the infection to stay at home and everyone can go back to some semblance of normality. the problem is people are not listening and not following the guidance and not staying at home when they've been asked to. so we're at a critical juncture to try and make sure we get the system in mays and make sure we get that risk communication
right to people so they understand why they're staying at home and they try to follow that guidance. >> and that is what the w.h.o. has said. we're seeing some countries go back into lockdown. wales, for instance. are broader lockdowns inevitable? >> i don't think anyone wants to get back into a lockdown. however, i don't see it in the uk, for example. and effectively, we're in tier system here in the uk. but those levels of restrictions keep increasing every day. so i think eventually we will end up in a more broader lockdown. and i think it's sort of inevitable because people haven't got the systems in place and people aren't being compliant with the guidance
they're being given. i don't really see another way out. >> i'm sure that's not what a lot of our viewers want to hear, but thank you very much. as covid-19 cases soar in the u.s., many schools are opting for virtual learning. it was announced on friday, in seattle, washington, most students will continue classes at home for at least the next three months. and now the city of boston is closing its public schools to in-person learning. >> i was at the opening day of school october 1st. it was the first time many of these young people were in school since back in march. and making that decision was probably one of the hardest decisions i've had to make since the coronavirus pandemic began here. there's just over a week to go before the u.s. presidential election. both candidates are burning up the campaign trail and both are
we were paying an arm and a leg for postage. i remember setting up shipstation. one or two clicks and everything was up and running. i was printing out labels and saving money. shipstation saves us so much time. it makes it really easy and seamless. pick an order, print everything you need, slap the label onto the box, and it's ready to go. our costs for shipping were cut in half. just like that. shipstation. the #1 choice of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/tv and get 2 months free.
more than 200,000 tiny white flag blankets in a field in washington, d.c. they represent american lives lost to coronavirus. the project is the brain child of artist suzanne hirstenberg who says she wanted to visualize the scale of lives lost. the installation will stay up through november 6th, a stark reminder there with virus numbers surging and only ten days until election day in the u.s. the pandemic is dominating talk on the campaign trail, but the candidates are painting very different pictures. in delaware, democratic nominee joe biden hit out against president trump's handling of the coronavirus and warned difficult months are ahead. last night, we saw the ptd of
the united states lie to the american people and repeatedly lie about the state of this pandemic. it has cost hundreds of thousands of americans lives and pushed millions into poverty. we saw him diminish the pain felt by so many americans. president trump said we're rounding the corner. it's going away. we're learn to go live with it. they are quotes. back seat as i told him last night, we're not learn to go live with it, we're learn to go die with it. this is a dark winter ahead. >> by contrast, mr. trump claimed the pandemic was receding. >> all he talks about is covid, covid, covid, because they want to scare people. and we've done so well with it. now it's 99.8%.
and we're rounding the corner beautifully. >> so to talk about all this, we're joined now by leslie in london. she's the director of the u.s. and the americas program at chad am house. thank you so much for coming on. let's start with the two candidates and covid. the president's confident sunny times are just around the corner despite evidence to the contrary and joe biden warning us of a dark winter. the last thing we want to hear is that things are going to get worse and we might have to go back into lockdown. will the president's message surge in the waneing days? >> there ever some voters in the united states who already know who they intent to voed for.
people want to hear a good message, but i think as you look at the numbers as americans have now been he listen with this for eight months, what they want to know is that things are going to get better because there's a vaccine on the way, because social distancing is working because they can see the numbers coming down and that's not what is happening right now. about 38 states, the numbers are high, the death toil is detroit and tragic and people are very well aware of this. so they want to see a plan, the majority of americans. and hearing that things are good without that second message as to why they are going to be good and what we can expect and how we're going to get there, that's the message that we're seeing from vice president biden. and if we believe the national polling, it's a message that's clearly working. he's many points ahead in the national polls. of course, we know this election
is going to be won in the battleground states and so that is a harder thing to call. but right now, it looks like the american people are much more inside the biden message than they are in president trump's message. >> you mentioned that most americans know for whom they're going to vote, but maybe one of the last chances to change that was the debate which at least matched the definition of the noun unlike the first one. what was your take away? and will it make any difference, do you think, as we round the corner to the campaign? >> i don't think it will make a lot of difference. i found the debate somewhat disappointing. it was certainly better than the first debate where president trump spoke over the moderator, argued with the moderator, spoke over the vice president, really very little could be heard by the audience and it was frankly a national embarrassment and i think the vice president felt that way. so you could see that president trump had been coached, that he
was thinking much more clearly about when to intervene. there were the new rules and it was marginally more civilized. but, republican, it started with the pandemic and it moved quickly on. there was so much between the two and there is really very little to be won. the president is the vice president says i'm worried about main street, not wall street. we need that government support so that schools and small businesses can stay open, but they can do so in a way that's safe. so there were a number of very big divides. i think the question of the 500 -- more than 500 children
hit the papers this week. the 500 children who we can't find their parents, it sort of brought back the question of immigration which has to be tackled by the next administration. so that was a very interesting pointed debate and, of course, the conversation about climate where we have -- >> yeah, let me ask you about that because that is one of the things that came out of the debate, joe biden now walking back comments he made at the end of the debate in which he promise to transition away from the oil industry and of course the president was quick to jump on those comments at this rally. listen to this. >> did you see him this morning? this morning -- i didn't really mean that. i didn't mean that. that was the last question that talked about that. i said, wow, this is the big point of the evening, remember? yeah, well, we want to phase it
out. i said thank you, texas, are you watching? >> and then he went on to name a couple of other states there. so now biden and his camp are trying to walk those comments back emphasizing they don't want to eliminate fossil fuels. but you heard trump start to make check those states where fossil fuels are huge. will this hurt him in those twinge states? >> yeah. that was clearly a moment in the debate. the vice president has a very serious and extensive plan for climate and it absolutely involves an energy transition to renewables over a significant period of time. it also involves 40% of a $2 trillion package being invested
in communities and it's a complex message to get across in a debate where there's a lot of politics and short moments. whether the extent of the message, how it will be played in pennsylvania, obviously, president trump is trying to manipulate that language. vice president biden is trying to counter it, to clarify it. what we're seeing so far is it's not shifting votes on the ground in pennsylvania, but we are ten days away from the most important election of our hooimpt. so there is a lot in play. but so far on the ground, people are trying to determine how they're going to vote. there is a lot of litigation still going on around the counting of the votes and the rules for voting. but, again, i think there's a
record turnout for voters. young voters are turning out early like never before in the united states. so i suspect people know what they have not. they're following the issues more carefully than they ever have before. but, again, it's difficult to predict. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you so much. scuffles broke out in naples, italy, over new restrictions imposed to help stop the spread of coronavirus. police used teargas after hundreds gathers to protest the curfew. tens of millions of europeans are facing tougher coronavirus restrictions going into this weekend. they come as new cases soar
across the country. for more, let's go to scott mcclain in berlin. take us through the situation in europe as the covid situation becomes more and more dire there. >> so despite new restrictions being brought in by german chancellor angela merkel last week, today this country just recorded a record high number of cases. it is a similar picture in italy which is seeing record high numbers. one regional governor there suggested the whole country ought to go into lockdown because the sort of partial measures in place right now simply are not working. france, again, a similar story. more record case counts. the president there said he expects his country will be with the virus until at least next summer. until then, countries across this continent are bringing in restrictions, curfews and in
some cases, even lockdowns. a picturesque town with a special place on the map. niten straddles england and wales. as of friday night, parts of it are face ago two-week lockdown. however, just around the corner, people still have the ability to move around. residents are complying, but admits these are confusing times. >> there are some question marks, especially in rural areas like this where we have almost no covid or coronavirus. why we have to shut down again -- >> ireland is just days into its six week lockdown. the streets there deserted, its citizens under a stay-at-home order. >> i've been able to walk around the streets and it is kind of eerie and pointed and there's a cloud of sadness. >> people wearing masks are no
longer an option. these are the new norms for many cities across europe. there is a growing presence in areas. potentially unpossible lar move, but a necessary one officials say as cases there reach record highs. >> i think it's good, but many people won't agree with it. but it's good to follow in the foot steps of other country toes try and kill this bug. >> and in slovakia, a massive testing drive plans to do just that. it wants to test everyone over the age of 10 saying it may allow personal freedoms for those who test negative. >> we are all afraid. i'm worried because i see what's happening and it's terrifying.
so i'm afraid. and that's why i'm here now. >> even sweden, a country that rejects lockdown measures and has not mandated wearing face masks has made some targeted adjustments this week. nightclubs are limited to a capacity of 50 people. the prime minister saying it's time for the party to stop. >> and the worst affected country not just in europe, but on earth right now is the czech republic. it has an infection rate five times higher than the united states. while many countries saw high deaths in the first wave and not in the second wave, it's quite the opposite with the czech republic. and on top of all that, the health minister has been accused
of rejectioning his own rules. >> now we just heard some news out of poland. what can you tell us from there? >> sure. so reuters is now reporting the polish president was tested for the virus yesterday. today that test came back and it is positive. the president says he is feeling good at this point. the belg yam deputy prime minister does require constant monitoring at this stage. also, the czech remember had its deputy prime minister testing positive. here in germany, the health
minister also tested positive. >> thank you for that jump date in berlin. early voting is under away in the united states ahead of election day. we'll look at some possible pathway toes victory for the candidates coming up after the break. ally proven ingredients that fuel 5 indicators of brain performance. memory, focus, accuracy, learning, and concentration. try our new gummies for 30 days and see the difference.

for the election in the united states. what really counts, of course, are votes, specifically the 200 electoral college votes needed to secure the presidency. there are many possibilities, but most of them look better for biden than trump. >> the 2020 presidential debates are in the rear view, which means it's crunch time for both campaigns. i think the big question now for both of those campaigns is what is the strategy to close things out in these final days? the campaigns themselves, you need to look at the signals. their money and their time. but first, let's take a look at where things stand at this moment. you will see joe biden above the 200 electoral votes he would
need to win the presidency. lighter blue, those are leans. the leans don't necessarily mean they are going to go biden's way on election day, but right now, that's where things stand. so take a look. where you see the gold, those are the tossups. and this time around, everything in gold was a state that president donald trump won back in 2016. so let's first pull up where the candidates and some of their top surrogates are going over the course of this past week and this weekend. and you get a sense of what the campaigns are really focused on. joe biden obviously in tennessee for the debate. pennsylvania, keep pennsylvania in mind. bernie sanders, now a top surrogate, once a competitor for joe biden, head to go pennsylvania this weekend, as well. president barack obama heading to pennsylvania earlier in the week and then florida over the course of the weekend. you get a sense from that, pennsylvania and florida. i'll come back to that. but first, take a look at the
enormous travel schedule of the president and the vice president. obviously very active. taking a different method of campaigning than the biden campaign in the middle of the pandemic. they are going a lot of different places which underscores two things. one, they are defending the united states. keep an eye on all of these states and focus on pennsylvania, focus on florida. where else do you want to look at here? look at what they're spending. obviously, the spending matters a lot. and what comes up top here, first, joe biden with a significant advantage on the campaign level. both campaigns spending big in the state of florida. both campaigns spending big in the state of north dakota. that should give you a send of the three or four key states that you're looking at over the course of the next couple of days, really the next 10, 11, 9. what does it all mean?
i talked about florida and pennsylvania. say you give the trump campaign every single gold tossup here, except for the state of florida. joe biden is still over 270 electoral votes. president trump still below. what if you give joe biden the state of florida? obviously, he goes even higher there, but president trump breaks the blue wall in the midwest just like he did back in 2016. let's show how different things are for president trump to win if joe biden wins florida. it really underscores the point here. say he takes pennsylvania again. joe biden, still well over 270. say he takes michigan again, joe biden, still over 270. the reality for the trump campaign is without florida, president trump is almost certain not to be re-elected. and also, why do you go, if you're the biden campaign, to pennsylvania?
we talked about how important the midwest is. how important it was for his re-election back in 2016. let's say he wins all the tossup states. joe biden at 290. that creates significant problems for president trump. ish8g difficult, difficult problem sessions if you're not winning pennsylvania where he ran stronger in 2016. there are pathways for president trump there are probably more pathways for joe biden. but, again, look at where they're spending, look at where they're going. and as i noted earlier, keep an eye on north carolina, as well. a lot of things could happen. this is the map and it could change. back to you. one group of voters that shouldn't be overlooked are
american ex pats living overseas. for more on how they could affect the outcome, let's bring in mark kaiser, a professor of politics in berlin. i saw a headline somewhere saying if the election is close, it could potentially hinge on the ex pat vote. so let's table the question right now of whether that is realistic, but make the case for why the ex pat vote could matter. >> yeah. so in general, the ex pat vote doesn't usually have a large effect simply because the numbers are so small. their turnout rate historically has been abysmal. in 2016, of the 3 million ex passes of voting age, only
208,000 cast a ballot. 6.9%, that's very low. the numbers are usually too small to matter. but in a circumstance where it's a very close election in a state that has a very razor thin race, it is possible that maybe a state, most likely florida or north carolina, probably florida because it has more ex pats, then it could matter in a skre, very close race. >> and, in fact, we have to go back to 2,000 for bush/gore. we saw it hij on so few votes in that circumstance. if something like that happened, it could be crucial and, you know, what role, if any, did the ex pat vote play there?
>> when a race is that close, basically anything can happen. even things like ballot design. if palm beach county would have of not had a butterfly ballot to confuse voters, that would have changed things. so, you know, not all of those are sent back, not all of those are validated because of errors. it will be higher in a presidential election, but ballpark, how many are counted and send back, maybe something like 30,000. that is not peanuts. in a close election, it could
matter. >> if it's close, which party should be waiting for those ballots to come in and anticipating? >> of americans abroad, there are two groups. one is military. one is ex pats. and the military trends historically republican, but, you know, arguably less so this year. and the ex pats actually are usually professionals working abroad or living abroad because of family members. family connections. and they tend to be more educated on average than most americans and they tend to be professionals. and these groups have been trending democratic. so the two gruchs oups in a way historically cancel each other out. the military is probably leaning less toward the republicans than they have in the past and the ex pat vote is probably leaning more democratic than it has been in the past. >> let me ask you one last
question before we go on that question. we are seeing report levels of early voting here. the enthusiasm seems through the roof. any sense of whether the ex pat vote, we'll see that, as well? >> yeah. turnout is expected to be higher than it was in 2016. and there is only room to improve for the ex pass vote so it's very reasonable to think that would actually increase. but the numbers, again, are not huge. these are small numbers, but in a close state like florida, there is a chance it could matter. >> we'll see whether that comes to take place. thank you so much, mark, for joining us from berlin. i appreciate it. >> thank you. israel and several of its neighbors have moved towards reconciliation. now sudan and israel have taken

less than two weeks before the presidential election, president trump is claiming a significant foreign policy victory. he announced on friday, that thanks to a u.s. brokered deal, sudan and israel have agreed to start normalizing relations. the two countries have agreed to start a relationship for the first time in decade webs but it's not clear if there will be full diplomatic ties. mr. trump signed an order removing sudan from the state sponsor of terror lists. the country's acting foreign minister says the agreement is just the beginning of the process. >> translator: this is an agreement to normalize. it is not yet normalization. we must wait for sudan's democratic institutions to be functional, including in the
legislative council so we can complete the ratification of this step so it can become, in reality, normalization. >> let's go now to oren lieberman. potentially a big win for donald trump and benjamin netanyahu, but before we go to the political angle, if approved, what would this mean for the sudanese? >> the country is in dire financial straights with a three-year government trying to create important democratic institution toes make sudan a stable country. part of that was being removed from the u.s. state sponsor of terror list so they could get help to get the economy and the country on stable footing. they needed the u.s. for that and it's because of that that the u.s. had the ability to say if you want that, normalize
relations with israel. but sudan made it clear, and we heard it there from the acting foreign minister, this isn't happening quickly and that is because this cause is very popular. there are political parties in sudan who don't look upon this agreement favorably. as much as it helped sudan financially, it is an act that could put pressure on sudan's fragile government as it's trying to lead the country forward here. >> thank you so much. appreciate it.

banned 270 people. this averages out to about two people per day being banned from delta flights. other airlines have similar requirements, but this is coming at a time when the cdc is saying masks must be worn by travelers on every part of the trip. new studies show the risk of contracting coronavirus on an airplane is actually pretty low, but cdc says the risk is higher in indoor places like terminals where people can get bunched up. airlines do not have any help from the federal government, the faa and the department of transportation have instituted no new requirements for masks on board airplanes. cnn, washington. >> i'll be back in just a moment with more news. please stay with us. want to brain better?

this is cnn breaking news. hello, i'm kim bruin huebner atlanta. with breaking news this hour, for the first time since the pandemic began, more than 80,000 americans were diagnosed with covid-19 in a single day. now, not only is that a record, it easily eclipses the worst days of july when documented new cases often topped 70,000 a day. this upward trend has been building steadily since early september. now the u.s. surgeon general warns the country can expect new daily records in coming days as the virus spreads
