tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  October 1, 2014 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
if you look at the hiring, but the banks we reached out to say they're committed to diversity and this report is inaccurate. i'll tell you when you look at wall street and luke at silicon valley, there's a lot of attention being paid to these two sort of job creators in energy parts of the economy where they are still mostly very white and very male. "early start" continues right now. ebola has reached the united states. a texas manifesting positive for the deadly virus, now, the frantic search to find anyone that patient had contact with before he was hospitalized. dr. sanjay gupta joins us live with the very latest. a new shocking secret service blunder. a missing -- an unauthorized man riding in an elevator with the president. this as the agency's director
2:01 am
getting grilled by congress over a different security scare. is the first family really safe. the war on its i.c.e. intensifies as the terrorists gain new ground, moving closer this morning to crucial cities in syria and iraq. we're live with the latest on the ground. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." a lot of news today. i'm christine roman s. >> and i'm john berman. it's wednesday, october 1st. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. and doctors are scrambling to react tie scenario that they have thought all along. now the race is on to contain the possible spread of this virus that has killed thousands in west africa. has no known cure. as we speak, this new patient is being treated in isolation in a hospital in texas. really health officials all over the country concerned about this case. our chief medical correspondent
2:02 am
dr. sanjay gupta joins us live from outside the centers for disease control in atlanta. sanjay, what can you tell us about this case? >> well, we are getting some details, john, about what happened here. this was a person who is in liberia, got on a plane on the 19th of september. at that time, felt well, had no sickness, wasn't feeling anything. land the on the 20th of september, got off the plane and was feeling fine. but four days later, the person started to feel sick. two days after that, the 26th of september. that day, they went out and sought care at a hospital. apparently, their symptoms got worse. they did not get admitted at that time or have any blood sent for testing. two days after that, the person came back to the hospital by ambulance quite sick. that came back tested for ebola. the first person in the united states diagnosed with ebola
2:03 am
here. as you well know, john, there have been other patients who have come from other countries but diagnosed with ebola at that time. they came for treatment. concerns, john, in some ways this wasn't unexpected that this would happen. that you'd get somebody landing in the united and then being diagnosed. the question is what's going to happen to try and prevent it from turning into an outbreak. dr. tom frieden who is the head of centers for disease control. talked about that specifically. take a listen. >> i have no doubt that we'll stop this in its track it's in u.s. but i also have no doubt as long as the outbreak continues in africa, we need to be on our guard. >> so very clear words, john, i think important words to hear. while the problem is obviously continuing to grow in west africa. the head of the cdc believes with what we know, implementing resources here in the united states, this isn't going to turn into an outbreak in this country, john. >> sanjay, you make a great
2:04 am
point. you told us this was going to happen that it was likely someone would come on a plane from african to the united states and end up diagnosed with ebola. the question now with this patient, those four days between when he first went to the hospital saying he felt sick and presumably had symptoms, and four days later when he was finally admitted. so what happens now? is every person this guy came in contact with over those four days might be at risk? >> yep, i don't want to overstate that, john, but that is exactly the way that they approach this. they have to assume that while he was sick, and he came in contact with people, those people have to be found. and they are at risk. and they need to be monitored. now, this is very important. you know, we ask the folks from the centers for disease control about this. this is called contact tracing. it involves actually going outdoor to door and finding people may have come in contact with this person and then telling them they've come in contact with this person, and they need to monitor their
2:05 am
temperature for 21 days. if they have any signs of fever, then that prompts further evaluation. they might be be tested for ebola. but it's a big arduous, laborious process. it could be done but takes time. if any of those people, who are contacts get sick, got to find out who their contacts were. you sort of get the idea. i want to show you a brief animation. i don't know if you can see this, john, of what we're talking about here. this is what they were talking about at anytime when they actually traced the ebola outbreaks. you may have an individual, they may have family members around them. if the family member gets sick, you have to trace all that person's contacts. it goes on and on. that's part of what was not happening well in west africa. that's why the number has increase they say they can do that well in the united states. >> it's a big task, but doable, that they can get it done, particularly with the resources here.
2:06 am
still something we have to watch very closely. sanjay gupta thank you for being with us. we'll check back with you. five minutes past the hour, we're learning of another shocking breach of security just a few feet from the president. a private security contractor with a gun, sharingen elevator with president obama when he visited the cdc in atlanta two weeks ago. this is a violation of secret service protocol. the revelation tuesday seems to conflict with testimony given at a congressional hearing just hours earlier. testimony by secret service director julia pierson. she testified she briefs the president on any serious breach. and the only briefing she's given him is the one with the fence jumper omar gonzalez. on tuesday, the secret service was given a bipartisan thrashing over the september 19th white house intrusion. >> why was there no guard station ted front door of the white house? this is the secret service
2:07 am
against one individual with mental illness. and you lost. you lost. and you had three shots at this guy. >> i wonder if there is a fitness problem here. chasing this gentleman who could not capture him. all six of them in this picture, could not capture him. >> we're oall outraged within te secret service of how this incident came to pass. and that is why i have asked for a full review. the obvious, it is obvious that mistakes were made. >> she was brought in because there were other scandals she was trying to clean up. history of scandals in the secret service. we're also learning now details about the agent who finally tackled gonzalez in the east room. "the washington post" reporting that the agent was a member of the obama daughters detail who had just gone off duty. not even on duty. julia pierson was brought in because the secret service was under intense scrutiny because
2:08 am
of -- shall we say escapades. were doing advance work for president and people thought that was a security risk. >> no thrashing like a bipartisan thrashing. there's more to come, i assure you. u.s.-led coalition keeping the pressure on isis with one of the heaviest rounds of air strikes. we're told 11 air strikes in syria, 11 in iraq over this 24-hour period. some hitting targets and kobani. that is the town in syria near the turkish border. it's a kurdish city. and those advances have shaken up the turkish government. the turkish parliament debating whether or not to send ground troops on isis. that would be a major development. britain, meanwhile, carrying out its first air strike on tuesday, four days after its parliament authorized air strikes.
2:09 am
cnn's ben wedeman joins us now from iraq with the latest. good morning, ben. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, john. well, since we last spoke, we've learned that there have been another series of british air strikes in iraq overnight. according to the british ministry of defense, two raf tornadoes hit a command and control center and two isis vehicles to the west baghdad. certainly that san area where iraqi security forces, the army and militias are under pressure from isis. which has continued to conduct hit-and-run attacks on the defensive shield, the defensive belt, around baghdad. meanwhile, in kobani, that town on the syrian/turkish border there is fighting ongoing as we speak. it does appear that despite the efforts of kurdish militias in that area, that isis is still able to move forward. and that, despite the
2:10 am
intensification of u.s. air strikes in that area really underscoring the problems when you're trying to fight isis, when you're only hitting them from the air, john. >> all right. that's the bigger problem here. battling this terror group. ben wedeman for them live in iraq. thanks so much, ben. ten minutes past the hour, time for an early start on "your money." u.s. stocks mixed. fairly moving. the first new day of a trading month. the dow fell slightly. the s&p 500 lost 1.5%. the worst performance since january. the nasdaq lost 2% last month. october, historically the scary month for stocks, the crash of 1929, the black monday of 2008, and even 2011. look at what's happening, the s&p 500 since march 2009. this is currently the fourth largest bull market. there has not been a true correction, a 10% pullback since 2011. we've got this big argument, is
2:11 am
it time for a pullback? or are stocks going to keep rising as the economy continues to improve? >> i am in favor of the keep rising scenario. >> s&p 500 is up 7% for the year. your 529s are in good shape. protesters defying calls to clear out. they are demanding change. this is the politest gathering of tens of thousands of people i've ever seen. and it's really making waves around the world. we're live in the middle of that protest. plus, the man accused abducting missing student hannah graham linked possibly to the rape and murder of another girl. and now investigated in a third case. that's next. every day people fall, from a simple misstep,

2:15 am
pro-democracy demonstrators are growing because more people are off work. cnn's andrew stevens is with us from the middle of all of these very polite protests. good morning, andrew. >> reporter: good morning, christine, this is exactly what beijing did not want to happen particularly on national day. tens of thousands of hong kong students, supporting people who have been here in the past three days, supporting them in this bid nor democratic change here in hong kong which would require -- hong kong leadership says this is not going to happen what i kept thinking repeatedly this is illegal.
2:16 am
this is considered unlawful, therefore, we will not listen to them. the protesters, the protest leaders on the other hand say they will continue to stay here, they will continue to fight. there is no dialogue which strikes me as extraordinary, there is no dialogue between the hong kong government and the protest leaders that i'm aware of and we will try to track this down. one hong kong leader said it's up to the hong kong leadership to speak to the entire proud. as you say, it's a standoff, a peaceful standoff. good-natured standoff. eerybody is looking out for each other at the moment. there's a reason, they don't want to give the hong kong police, any reason, any trigger, to actually come in. if you look at the crowds here, you can't imagine anybody successfully with this sheer number of people. tomorrow is a holiday as well. likely the same amount of numbers as we're getting today. just final list, i'd just like to say, christine, looking
2:17 am
around this crowd in front of me, i cannot see one single hong kong police uniform. they have backed right off. they're letting people have their moment, christine. >> having their moment. and what a big moment it is, andrew stevens in hong kong. thank you so much. the man suspected in the disappearance of uva student hannah graham has now been linked to another case. versuses in virginia say jesse matthew could be linked to the 2009 murder of 22-year-old cassandra morton. on monday, fris say matthew's aarrest provided a forensic link to the death of 20-year-old morgan harrington. harrington's mother spoke to anderson cooper about matthew's arrest. >> i don't have any desire or need to tear him limb from limb or hurt him. i just want to present him from hurting anybody else. and that i am vehement to do.
2:18 am
i don't really even feel angry because my mind -- i can't comprehend how somebody could hurt and, you know, kill our beautiful morgan. i mean, it is unfathomable to me. >> the campbell county sheriff said they're trying to find any evidence that places matthew in the town where morton's body was found in 2009. time for an early start on your forecast. indra petersons has that. good morning, indra. >> good morning. a couple light showers. very easy to see. notice the big picture. definitely seeing a lot of action right smack in the middle of the country. this is the story we've been watching. yes, southeast, light rain today, that's not a biggie. we're going to watch again as the threat for severe weather starts to expand. make its way into the midwest. eventually even bring the rainy weather to the west by the weekend. our good luck is definitely over. here we go, looking towards the midwest and the plains there, that is only going to expand as

2:32 am
never happened in the united states. frankly, it's never happened outside of africa before. it's obviously concerning, but also not that unexpected. we're talking about the first patient who was diagnosed with ebola in the united states. a lot of people remember there have been patients with ebola in the united states, but they have been diagnosed elsewhere and then were brought here for treatment. so this is different. and, again, that unexpected, given the fact that people are getting on planes from west africa, and traveling really anywhere around the world. they maybe be carrying the virus in their bodies without knowing it at the time. it's called the incubation period. that's what seems to have happened here. take a quick look at this calendar, christine, september 19th, this person got on the plane in liberia, felt fine when they got on, by report. got off the plane in the united states, four days later, the person started to feel unwell. two days after that on the 26th, the first time they went to the hospital to seek care. the person was not tested that
2:33 am
the point, was sent home. that's obviously raised a lot of questions. nevertheless, two days after that, the person returns to the hospital by ambulance at this point is tested for ebola. it comes back positive and the test is confirmed here at the cdc. again, christine, lots of questions, not the least of which is the passengers on the plane that the patient was with when he flew from liberia to the united states. what's the concern for them, dr. frieden addressed that question last night. >> in terms of the flight, i understand that people are curious about that and wonder about it. but, remember, ebola doesn't spread before someone gets sick. and he didn't get sick until four days after he got off the airplane. so we do not believe there's any risk to anyone who is on the flight at that time. >> so, sanjay, you mention allowed critical it's going to be to figure out how many contacts this person had with people while showing symptoms of the ebola virus.
2:34 am
walk us through that contact tracing, how that works. >> yep, so we're talking about a question of four days here, right, christine? on the 24th, the person got sick. on the 28th is when they went into the hospital and got isolated. so the question is, all the people that this person may have come in contact with during those four days that is the critical thing. that is what teams from the cdc have been sent to dallas to try and investigate. take a look at this animation to give you an idea how laborious that process can be. >> reporter: a woman in uganda didn't know she was sick with ebola. she was in close contact with six people. her baby and father-in-law, they both got sick. the baby then got his grandmother sick. and she had contact with two more people as well. the father-in-law had close contact with 12 people. out of that, his brother and cousin both got sick. so that's a real case example, from something happened in
2:35 am
uganda. but it gives you an example of what is going to be happening today here in the united states, specifically in dallas. >> and again, big questions about going to the hospital with symptoms being sent home. then coming back and being tested. i'm sure public health officials around the country are going to be really scrutinizing the recent travel of people now that we've seen this happen here. sanjay gupta thank you for that sanjay. severe criticism for the head of the secret service for two recent breaches of presidential security. secret service director julia pierson was grilled on capitol hill at a congressional hearing. it was rough. only hours later, there was yet another new breach coming to light. senior white house correspondent joe johns has more on this all from the white house. >> john and christine, the secret service confirms that it is investigating a report from two weeks ago that a man with a gun who was a contractor got on to an elevator with the president of the united states
2:36 am
at the centers for disease control in atlanta. congressman jason chaffetz of utah said he was told about the situation by one of his whistle-blowers. this information came out on the same day that the director of the secret service was taken to task by members of both parties for a recent incident when a man jumped a fence at the white house and made it all the way inside, before he was tackled by officers. the director julia pierson saying it's peer that our security plan was not properly executed. this is unacceptable. and i take full responsibility and i will make sure it does not happen again. the secret service also took tough questions about an incident in november 2011 when shots were fired at the white house. but agents were not able to determine, those shots broke a window until days later. john and christine. all right, the u.s.-led coalition keeping the pressure on isis this morning with one of the heaviest rounds of bombing since the war was expanded to include targets in syria a week
2:37 am
ago. a total of 11 air strikes in syria. 11 in iraq over the past 24 hours. britain carrying out its first air strikes in iraq on tuesday, four days after parliament there authorized air strikes. and air strikes in syria hitting targets around kobani. that is a town on the turkish border. a town under siege. isis fighters advancing on the kurdish city shaking up the turkish government. the turkish parliament debating whether or not to send ground troops in iraq and syria. cnn's phil black joins us from the turkey/syria border near kobani. we hear there's constant shelling, phil, into kobani now. what's happening? >> reporter: yeah, christine, that's right. you mentioned those air strikes. in this area yesterday. they were against isis, artillery and rocket launchers. and they seem to have an effect at the time. there was somewhat of a lull in the fighting late yesterday afternoon. but this morning, what we're
2:38 am
seeing is really a renewed bombardment against kobani. we see constant shelling or mortar fire coming into that city. and we've also seen pretty heavy and significant blasts away from the city. as well, as well as hearing aircraft overhead, that suggests, perhaps that air strike are ongoing. now, we can't be sure of that. we're to the east of the city. to the west of the city, another team is witnessing isis fighters trying to get closer to the city. trying to assault kobani from that side as well. so kobani is very much under pressure. so are its defenders. those kurdish fighters that have stayed behind to try and resist isis while the bulk has fled across the border into turkey. you mentioned the turkish government has put to parliament a new piece of legislation that would widen its ability to take military action in syria. it already has a parliament
2:39 am
movement to do so but only against forces. and current security threats really means isis. we'll be looking to see what the detail of this piece of legislation is. noises, statements from the turkish government and u.s. officials as well would seem to imply that it's getting ready to join in some capacity. but it's only a matter of time. and turkey is looking to announce some sort of contribution to this military effort. it is likely that this piece of legislation will provide the legal framework allowing it to do so, christine. >> yeah, certainly, an urgent situation. we that isis does not recognize national borders. so if you're turkey and on the other side of that border, you've got to be concerned. phil black, thank you so much. the international effort to destroy isis when prime minister ben bernanke meets president obama at the white house today.
