the weekend marks the annual memorial day holiday in the united states. it is a time to remember those who gave their lives in battle. but this year, of course, it is different. it is happening in the middle of a global pandemic that continues to ravage communities around the world. since the first u.s. death was reported at the end of february, covid-19 has killed 96,000 people in the u.s. and u.s. health officials expect that it will climb to 100,000 by the first of june. even as new cases and deaths rise daily, the trump administration is urging the states to reopen quickly so people can do the things they
normally do as long as they practice social distancing. and now the u.s. president demanding that places of worship reopen immediately. even threatening to force the issue if state governors resist. it was only a few weeks ago that president trump said that he would leave those decisions up to the individual governors. president trump has claimed that he has been taking an anti malaria drug to avoid catching the coronavirus, but now there is evidence that that drug is ineffective and can even be deadly. more now from caitlkaitlan collt the white house. >> reporter: a new study shows that an anti malaria drug may harm coronavirus patients. >> hydroxychloroquine. >> reporter: the study is the largest analysis done to date and it reveals that coronavirus patients who were seriously ill and given hydroxychloroquine
were more likely to develop abnormal heart rhythms or even die. >> i think that the fda has been clear on their website about their concerns about hydroxychloroquine. >> reporter: trump has been taking the drug in hopes of preventing position from getting coronavirus. despite the warning that it is not safe or effective. >> hydroxychloroquine, try it. if things don't go as planned, it is not going to kill anybody. >> reporter: trump didn't address the study today, but he did announce that the cdc will declare places of the worship ascension. >> in america, we need more prayer, not less. >> reporter: trump says he wants chushlgs a churches and other places reopened immediately. >>? governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics essential but have left out churches and other houses of
worship in that that is not right. if they don't do it, i will override the governors. >> reporter: the new guidelines encourage relijnlgious houses t wear face coverings and intense guy cleanings and encourage social distancing about minimize the use of prayer books. >> it is interesting to be in a room that desperately wants to see the houses of worships stay closed. >> i object to that. i'm dying to go back to church. >> maybe they want another week. >> reporter: and this was dr. birx' first appearance in the briefing room since april. >> we've been talking with the communications people and they realize that we need to get some of this information out.
>> reporter: dr. birx encouraged americans to maintain distance but spend time outside this weekend. >> you can play golf, you can play tennis with marked can go. >> reporter: the president ordered flags to be at half-staff to honor those who have lost their lives. t it is not clear which rule the president is using, but the governor of new hampshire was asked about the president's comments and he said no, it is the governors who will make the decisions about when those places can reopen. kaitlan collins, cnn, the white house. a grave new milestone for brazil. it now has the second highest number of coronavirus cases in the world only behind the u.s. on friday, the country's health ministry reporting nearly 21,000 new cases, bringing the total number of infections to more
than 330,000. more than 21,000 people have died from the virus there so far. and in peru, the nationwide lockdown there is being extended through the end of june. this coming as the number of people with coronavirus continues to climb. the government reporting more than 111,000 cases so foor, that far, and peru has the second greatest number of covid-19 cases in latin america behind brazil. and in mexico, that country is setting a grim record friday, the most deaths it has seen in a single day. it reported 479 patients succumbed to the virus, total number of cases in mexico, more than 62,000, almost 7,000 deaths. the uk is planning to enforce new quarantine rules starting june 8 and they are already coming under fire.
the rules require travelers to self-isolate for two weeks upon arrival. the british prime minister might have to travel mg. boris johnson coming heading to the u.s. next month for a potential g7 meeting if it happens. nic robertson is joining me live from london. let's talk about this quarantine order. how is it going to work, is there a sense that it is necessary? >> reporter: there are questions. the government says that it is necessary. the government says that contrary to the anger and popular opinion, that the government should have put a quarantine many months ago. the government says that misses the point, that the reason to put the quarantine in place now is that the numbers are coming down in the uk, that the infection rates are dropping and
therefore there is a more significant threat coming from outside. how is it going to work remains a question. there are questions whether the police force who say they are stressed or the border force should be doing the followup checks to make sure that people are actually abiding by the quarantine restrictions which is to -- when you are coming to the country, to tell authorities where you will be for those 14 days and then not leave. so there are questions about that. there are questions from the tourist industry about how this will affect tourism in the uk and people will want to go on holidays this summer, still a lot of pressure for that. and perhaps the biggest question more broadly is how is this going to impact britain trying to restart its economy. these are all fundamental questions that every country is facing at the moechlt. b moment. but one of the criticisms additional to those is why has the british government waited so
long. it announced this yesterday, but it is waiting until the 8th of judge to put in place something it says is very important. so there is a lot of questions being asked about it. >> yeah, you'd think very important would be very important. i want to ask you too about boris johnson, whether he will travel to the u.s. next month for what is really a potential g7. trump hasn't made that decision yet. is there sense that it would be a good idea for the british prime minister? >> certainly from number 10 downing street the view is that this meeting, the g7. >> was always going to be beneficial to boris johnson. he is trying to put through negotiations and part of brexit and part of that is to be able to say that i have a good trade agreement in the works with the united states. no coincidence that just
yesterday the british government announced that the prime minister is considering and probably will scale down the involvement of the chinese huawei manufacturers involvement in the british 5g network, scale it down to zero by 2023. the british government has been under huge pressure from the united stat united states to do that, and the british government wants to get the agreement with the united states done quickly. and 5g has been a speed bump in that road. and so going to the united states at the beginning of june would perhaps be a cornerstone in his strategy to gets a he has said so many times, to get brexit completely done, which is the final trade agreement with the eu and of course the united states too. >> interesting days ahead.
thank you, nic robertson in london for us. with us now is claire wenam who teaches global health policy and political science. and following on from our chat there, in the uk where you are, the uk government expected to announce the self-quarantine, 14 days. do you think it is an effective way of preventing a second wave, does it work? >> we're seeing these quarantine measures work in other places, hong kong for example is doing it. but my question is how are they going to enforce it, how do they track it. so even if you do implement it, you how do you make sure that it works. and the second question, why weren't we doing this months ago. we know this could be a way of
preventing further infectioinfe. but it is almost premature to do this until we have cases under control in the community. we're not clear that there will be a second wave anyway. so i think that we need to think more carefully about why june is the time to implement this as opposed to any other time. >> yeah, and you mentioned the stay alert message, and it is interesting that you talk about the uk, that stay alert message is really just for england. the devolved governments didn't follow that message, they have sort of gone their own way. i wonder whether you think that has created a politicized environment for these four different nations. >> i think it has, but i don't think that it was necessarily the intention. i don't think that the administration actively wanted to take a different route for political gain. i think that it is just that they don't feel that we are in a position with community
transmission. they didn't want to change the message and they wanted to make sure that people did continue to stay at home until we're in a position to open unsafely. >> and the president here in the u.s. is saying go to church, open up and everybody go to church. and that even he would override governors who said no to that, even though he can't do that legally. churches have been hot spots of outbreaks already. how risky is to seeing the president basically telling states to allow churches to commence? >> i think that it is really dangerous. as you highlighted, we've seen he religious institutions be super spreading events for coronavirus. there was a big one in south korea at the beginning of the outbreak which led to many of the cases in south korea in the initial months. and so i think that it is really risky to try to do this. i think it is appealing maybe to
his base and a lot of people do want to go to church, but i don't think that people realize that it is not a simple decision. and i also think that until there are clear cdc guidelines about how to introduce mass gatherings begin, it is too early to try to contemplate it. >> yeah, there have been a number of outbreaks from church gatherings in the u.s. hydroxychloroquine, another study released on friday involved hospitalized patients. it showed people were more likely to die and between 2.4 and 5 times likely to have cardiac arrhythmia. and yet the president is stilt to still touting it by taking it himself, well, he says he is. what are your thoughts on that given the science coming out? >> i think it is very dangerous. i think that it is very reckless. in my understanding, that the president wants to have a silver
bullet to be able to manage this and it worked well, that they have something that will work. but fundamentally it is not working and it is a dangerous precedent for the president to be setting. >> and dr. fauci, he said friday that he thinks that it is conceivable that there could be a coronavirus vaccine by december. i'm wondering if you think that is possible. is that realistic, december, given the need for widespread trials? there has been some criticism much a couple of these trials already. do you think there is a risk of a rush to a vaccine? >> i think -- i don't think that there is a risk of a rush, but i think that no one can put a date on it just yet. no one will relealease a vaccin
that they know that it works and that it is safe and there are proper clinical trials run to be sure that we know the adverse side effects of it. there is no way anyone knows when that will happen because we don't know what the clinical trials will show, what might happen along the road here. so while you can hope for it to be by december, you can't say for definite yet and i think that it is dangerous to state a date. there is no way of guaranteeing it. because it depends what is discovered along the way. >> and it was interesting that the w.h.o. felt the need to say that fighting the misinformation is just as important as fighting the virus itself. if you seen a lot of misinformation out there that worries you? >> there is a lot of misinformation. we know that there is a lot of bots. some of the information is even
getting up to the president of the united states and he's pushing out the information. so i think it is just about making sure that all decisions are made by government and by the individual people and scientists with rigorous he s d evidence. >> claire, appreciate it. thank you. and spain was set to lift more coronavirus restrictions on monday. including vehicle rules in madrid and barcelona. meanwhile right ring protestors are slamming the government's response. they could be on the streets in the next hour or two. we'll have a live report. also slowly, carefully, schools reopening. but the covid crisis means changes in classrooms worldwide. we'll tell you about the various approaches after the break. are you sick and tired of lookingand

to begin soon. al goodman is in that dwrid wine latest. what is behind all the protests? >> reporter: the far right party, third largest party in spanish parliament, has called the protests against the government at midday in madrid and barcelona and other city, they will be in automobiles because authorities are not letting crowds of people getting together. but we can expect to see a line of cars waving spanish flags. they are protesting what they say is the restriction on free circulation on free movement during this now ten week confinement order. the government says that the order is in place to reduce the infections, which it has, and that the right to public health and life is more important but the battle lines are clearly drawn. what we've seen now for weeks at 9:00 local time in the evening is spaniards banging pots
against the government and now in the last couple weeks they have come down from their windows and balconies to street level to protest in the streets, some hundreds. so clearly there is more anger now building against the government. >> and this change for madrid and barcelona, they were kept bank from the relaxation of restrictions and that is about to change. i'm sure there is a lot of relief. >> reporter: indeed, they were kept back because they were the two hardest hit areas. but now as they move to phase one, for the first time in ten weeks people can go out and have meetings with friends, relatives that they don't live with, they could go to outdoor cafes like this one, you can see these tables have been chained up here for the ten weeks in this outdoor are cafe which has a little roof on it, but windows open. so this is the kind of thing that just over half of the population now on monday will enjoy and just under half of the population will move on to phase
two, they are already there or moving there, that allows even more meetings, 15 people, larger stores to open, weddings for up to 100 people and not just outdoor seating but also indoor seating at restaurants. so clearly the government is trying to get the confinement order lifted by the end of june. so there might be a summer beach season and all sorts of things. so that they don't lose the entire summer. >> al goodman, good to see you. and now around the world, schools are beginning to reopen and students hitting the books, but social distancing in the koichd oig a covid age is a challenge. masks are obligatory, but not everywhere. and as fred pleitgen reports, the classroom is getting a makeover. >> reporter: it looks almost like a normal school break. except for the police sttape
quiding the schoqui guiding tguid dividing the schoolyard. >> if you follow the guidelines, if you keep distance, if you make sure to wash your hand, keep antisanitizing, coughing i your sleeve, i think that we'll be safe. >> reporter: and deny mark started reopening schools more than a month ago and so far new cases haven't spiked.mark started reopening schools more than a month ago and so far new cases haven't spiked. what is surprising, students and teachers don't wear masks. instead they keep distance and sanitize often. >> it is a bit challenging, but you get used to it after a time. >> reporter: it is a different picture in south korea. children there not only wear masks, some are seated behind plexiglass dividers. still the country shut down dozens of schools after two kids tested positive.
even the first major coronavirus epicenter, wuhan, brought kids back two yeweeks ago. masks are mandatory and other strict measures have been taken. we rearranged the facilities on the campus to ensure each class has its own restroom, he says. its own boil water room and its own alternative class room. france reopened schools last week, but has already had to shut some down again after recording dozens of coronavirus cases. still the education minister says that the kids are doing their part. the pupils understand the social distancing rules, he says, the wearing of masks and in some cases they show the way including for adults because they understand what is at stake. denmark says it hopes to have all students back in school next week, but physical distancing rules means that they don't have
space for them all. so they are getting creative. moving some classes into local churches and even the church graveyard. all to try to ensure children can have their lessons even in a time a pandemic. fred pleitgen, cnn, berlin. and when we come back, the national peoples congress proposing new rules for hong kong and they have already worsened the frayed relations with the west. we'll go live to hong kong. when we started our business

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm michael holmes. you're watching "cnn newsroom." [ sirens ] investigators in pakistan continue the grim task of identifying bodies after a passenger plane crashed on friday. they have accounted for all 99 people on board the plane. 99 broe 99 bodies recovered, two people did survive. and there are new security rules in hong kong and it rattled markets. and as hong kong's leaders reacted, the hang seng index had its biggest daily drop in five years. the controversial legislation would ban what is called sedition and sub versiversion o
government. >> we're absolutely not going to give china a pass. all the options are on the table. and as an economist, if hong kong stops being hong kong, then it will no longer be the financial center that it is and that will be very costly to china and to the people of hong kong. so, yeah, i think that it is a very difficult scary move and it is something that people need to pay close attention to. >> let's go to hong kong now. kristie lu stout is standing by with the very latest. interesting that the u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo calling beijing's plan a death knell for hong kong's freedoms. but without donald trump weighing in, it probably doesn't mean much. tell us about the international reaction and beijing's response. >> reporter: at the moment we still have this war of words between the u.s. and china, but right now, during the pandemic, it is not about covid, it is all about the fate and future of
hong kong. and now chai's ambassador the c and also mike pompeo said that the legislation would be a death knell for hong kong's autonomy, we have this twitter post just put up a few hours ago by china's mission to the u.n. condemning those statements from the u.s. let's bring it up for you. it keyeds, no country in the world would tolerate any activities that undermine its national security. any legislation for hong kong sar to safe guard national security is china's internal favors. u.s. attempt in interfering in hong kong affairs is doomed to fail. now, thursday, we know that china's parliament introduced the legislation that would give china more congress over hong kong and right now the national peoples congress is under way in beijing are and they are expected to rubber stamp that
legislation. we've learned that the legislation if and when passed would also mean that china's ministry of state security would be able to establish themselves inside the territory here in hong kong and enforce the law. as expected there has been a lot of outrage here in hoin hong ko with one lawmaker saying the end of hong kong. carrie lam issued a statement yesterday expressing full support for the legislation. but there is a lot of anger here in hong kong directed at beijing, directed at the hong kong government especially after the recent arrest of hundreds of people during the pandemic for taking part in these unauthorized flash mob protests and that sweep of arrests in one day last month of 15 high profile democracy activists. and those arrests and plus this legislation adding to a sense o.
>> and speak to the timing. why is beijing doing this and why now? >> reporter: by doing this, they are taking aim at something that happened has year, the 2019 hong kong protests. beijing was very alarmed by the violence, the clashes that took place that door apart the fabric of society, that undermined tourism and hammerered the economy. beijing was dismiayed at the elections last november which showed a very poor showing for pro beijing candidates. but there were hints that this was going to happen. just in the last month or so, we heard from china's top official here in hong kong saying that it was time for new security legislation. when you look at how china is handling the pandemic, it is under control, no new cases today, factories and schools are back open, so it feels that it is negotiating from a position
of strength while the rest of the world is distracted. >> kristie lu stout, appreciate it, thanks. and now we have a national security analyst joining us. let's take a look at the broader issues at play when it comes to china and donald trump. you have china emboldened really, the hong kong proposed laws, south china sea expansion, a lot more. do you see china saying what are you going to do about it, feeling that president trump won't cross president xi? >> china has donald trump between a rock and a hard place. because of coronavirus and other pressures, it is no secret that the global economy is already under enormous strain. and if president trump chooses to take tiactual steps to hold e
ccp accountable for what is likely to be what secretary of state mike pompeo call theed th death nell, that will have adverse consequences for the u.s. businesses. we trade with hong kong. and if president trump does choose to revoke the special status, that would have serious implications for businesses operating in hong kong and as well as trade more generally at a time when the global economy really can't come under more pressure. >> and talk more about the china moves, the so-called security laws. you have proceed democracy activists with mass protests, secretary capompeo called it a
death knell. what does donald trump need to say especially given his constant praise of president xi jinping? >> when the history books write the story of this posture towards china, it will be a tale of two policies. we've had various parts of the executive branch take 1eserious steps to punish china, they have taken steps to suspicious china out of various markets here in the united states, they have issued sanctions to hold chinese officials accountable for things like human rights abuses. but while this is ongoing, president trump has really undercut those efforts to try to foster warm relationship with president xi jinping. you think about to the hong kong protests last summer. we ended up uimplementing legislation to hold hong kong accountable, but president trump waffled whether he would allow that legislation to go forward. he continued to call president xi jinping a friend. and it was clear to the chinese
and to everyone else what president trump's priorities have been. his priority with china has been crystal clear, to get china to agree to a trade deal, that would result in more agricultural purchases by china of u.s. products. he has been unwilling to hold china accountable for a host of other illegal and destabilizing actions because he hasn't wanted to upset the apple cart when it comes to trade. and the broader context here is that china's territorial am bigts ambitions is long standing. and right now, china is taking advantage of various conditions associated with coronavirus to really move full steam ahead in trying to further erode hong kong's autonomy. >> yeah, that is interesting because that relates directly to the election of course. do election realities leave the
president in a way impotestent because he wants the trade deal to work even though it won't make up for the losses on the tariff war, is he sort of letting the country being vulnerable to china just because he wants to have that deal in place for the election? >> there are a series of variables here. let's remember that right now china has become a popular political football. president trump is trying to rewrite his own history on china. he is placating president xi, things like the pro democracy protests, he referred to them as riots last summer. he is trying to rewrite that history and to look tough on china because he has been so criticized for his xlocoronavir response here at home so trying to scapegoat china and rewrite his own political narrative. so he has a geopolitical going in the way that china is forging
ahead with degrading the one country two systems framework and feeling emboldened more generally, but there is a political issue where he needs to look tough on china and the economic reality that doing something serious like revoking hong kong's special status would have economic implications at a time when he is really trying to point to economic recovery as a key campaign talking point. >> streets oit is one thing to china on twitter but another thing to actually do it. during the obama administration, you were part of options discussions in the sit room. what could be done for hong kong in terms of options today or could congress act separately from the president? >> let's remember that the last time around congress did act when president trump wouldn't. there was bipartisan legislation passed after the protests in hong kong when the executive branch did not take immediate
action. and having been in the situation room, there are often no good options. every option comes with cost. and these situations, you really need a president who is in the first instance reading intelligence about how in this case this chinese communist party would respond to various u.s. intelligence, and then listening to his advisers about the associated cost with any option. what seems to be on the table is a revocation of hong kong's special status. which was stat torely i statut implemented in 1992 and would take congress super seeding the legislation to revoke that special status for hong kong. so right now in the situation room i would imagine that there is a lot of heavy economic analysis and the short, medium
and long game. i was never part of the political side of it, but because of the campaign imperative, i would imagine that trump is consulting where his campaign team concurrently. >> samantha, thank you so much. >> thank you. do stay with us. when we come back-46. >> if you have a problem figuring out whether you are for me or trump, you ain't black. >> didn't take long for joe biden to wish that he could take those words back. we'll tell you what he said a short time later. and the man who recorded the shooting death of a black jogger appears in court. the latest twist and turns in this case straight ahead. staying connected your way is easier than ever.
overwhelmingly favor joe biden or donald trump. but biden now says that he regrets making a flippant remark during a radio interview that seems to suggest that he takes those black voters for granted. here's what he said on the radio program, the breakfast club. >> a long way until november, we got more questions. >> you got more questions, but if you have a problem figuring out whether you are for me or trump, you ain't black. >> didn't have nothing to do with trump, it has to do with the fact that i want something for my community. >> now, biden probably knew right away he should have chosen his words a little more carefully because a short time later, he made this mea culpa to members of the black chamber of commerce. >> i shouldn't have been such a wise guy. i shouldn't have been so cavalier. no one, no one should have to vote for any party based on their race, religion, their back ground. >> the host of the radio show
spoke to cnn about what he had been looking for in his interview with biden. >> i heard him, you know, talking about things that he did for black people back in the day, but what have you done for me lately is my motto. i see black communities catching hell regardless who is in the white house. it is not about trump, it is about who is xwos is going to p the best deal for black people, who is going to finally give black people what they are owed for building this country. >> the man who recorded the fatal shooting of the georgia jogger ahmaud arbery made his first court appearance on friday. william roddy bryant now facing charges of felony murder. martin savidge has the latest developments. >> reporter: william roddy bryant jr. was taken into custody without incident yesterday evening. authorities wouldn't say much about the timing of his arrest because that was the big question people had, why now,
why two weeks after the original suspects were taken into custody. the gbi would only say that they made their decision to arrest him on wednesday. that is interesting timing because on tuesday search warrants were conducted on the homes of gregory and travis mcmichael. so was there something found inside of those homes that had authorities make up their final mind when it came to bryant? his attorney has maintained that bryant was nothing but a witness who just happened to roll on a critical piece of evidence with his cellphone. but it is clear that the georgia bureau of investigation didn't see it that way. >> if we believed he was a witness, we wouldn't have arrested him. so i won't speak specifically about what we took from him, but eventually that will come out in the court of law. but suffice to say, there are a number of pieces of video that ended us get to that point. >> reporter: that is the director of the gb ichi.
and he talked about whether or not there was additional video. many speculated that the 36 second clip that was on bryant's cellphone was maybe not the end of it, maybe there was more that showed the beginning of how this whole pursuit took place. and it is also interesting to note that in previous cases where you've had a bystander collect critical video, they are often looked upon as being a hero. that was not the case with bryant, he was always a suspect from the very beginning in the mind s of many people, includin the family of ahmaud arbery. martin savidge, cnn, decatur. when we come back, tiger woods, phil mickelson, tom brady, peyton manning. what do all those legends have in common? all four will be teaming up for a $10 million prize. we'll have the details after the break. what's going on? i'm a talking dog. the other issue. oh... i'm scratching like crazy. you've got some allergic itch with skin inflammation.

and tom brady will team up with mickelson and peyton manning, another of the sport's legendary quarterbacks playing with woods in the match champions for charity, helping those impacted by the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. >> a lot of people struggling. i mentioned new orleans, my hometown is once again being hit hard by this virus as are many communities around the country. so, you know, i don't think this event would happen if it wasn't with going to benefit those people that are hurting. and so i think that that is why it is a double win. >> this is a unique moment in time and i think the ability to do good and help others is at the core of what this was all about. >> reporter: manning was an intense rival of brady's during a storied career with the colts and broncos before his retirement. brady himself having recently left the new england patriots after 20 seasons to join the buccaneers. >> i'll be honest, i've never played tom very well on his home
