According to the CDC, the rise in Covid deaths may continue over the next month, even as hospitalizations possibly stabilize.
This is even though more than 75 percent of adults have received one vaccine shot. However, the CDC also noted today, the pace of vaccinations is down.
The spike in cases comes not only as America's schools re-open, but as new data from the American Academy of Pediatrics says 1 in 4 of these new cases is of a child.
The organization says there has been a 250 percent increase in infections of children from five weeks ago. In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis banned school mask mandates that didn't allow for a parental opt-out. That led to a legal fight. And today a Florida judge ruled against DeSantis’ appeal, allowing Florida schools to continue to have mask mandates while the case is appealed at a higher level. One of the school superintendents front and center in the fight talks to Anderson. And is former President Trump making plans to enter the 2024 GOP Presidential race? Mary Trump, his niece, joins Anderson to discuss the possible political moves.
