this weekend. >> finally it is coming and cooler temperatures.>> cbs this morning is coming good morning, good morning, and welcome to bs this morning" from washington. i'm anthony mason with tony dokoupil. gayle king is off so michelle miller is with us. canceled and closed. the coronavirus pandemic shuts down schools, sporting events and businesses. wall street stocks have their worst day in a generation. we'll have the newest information on the worldwide pandemic. >> virus test system failing. we'll talk with dr. anthony fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert. he says the way the u.s. is testing for the coronavirus is not working. how to self-quarantine. vladimir duthiers shows us life behind closed doors because of the virus only on "cbs this ma.
7:01 am
and on a lighter note, the black crows are back. we go on tour with the robinson brothers who started the band, broke it up and are now reunited musically and personally. >> it's friday, march 13th, 2020. we'll have the latest updates on the coronavirus right after today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> just a question of time. stay away from people. watch your hands and do all the things we're supposed to be doing a little bit anyway. >> life here in america is changing. the full scope of the coronavirus outbreak is coming into focus. and it is a grim picture. >> we don't know how long it lasts. usually several weeks to a couple of months. >> we have anticipated that cases of coronavirus would increase. we're seeing that pattern play out. we know there's more to come. >> the market reacting to the
7:02 am
president's decision to suspend travel. >> i guess we're going to get through this one. >> obviously impacted nba, nhl, major league bairblseball, tenn soccer. this one really stopped people in its tracks. the ncaa announced that march madness would be canceled. >> no presents under the tree. >> the first one on one debate there will be no live audience in attendance. which begs the question, if joe biden makes a horrible gaffe and no one is there to hear it -- does it still make you cringe? >> meantime, the late night talk shows are joining other live shows in their decision not to film in front of live audiences. amid rising fears about the >> oh, my god.navirus.
7:03 am
oh, my goodness. oh, i should not be this tired. >> suddenly everything has changed. welcome to "cbs this morning" from washington, d.c. the new normal in america is keeping clear of the coronavirus from business to sports to family life. the list of schools and activities forced to close in order to protect public health jumped dramatically yesterday. companies have asked millions of employees to work from home to protect their colleagues. the dow jones industrial average plummeted 10% yesterday, its worst day in more than 32 years. and the government still faces serious questions over the limited level of coronavirus testing. >> cbs news is tracking the extent of testing in every state in this country. the numbers show just over 13,000 americans have been tested, and more than 1,700 of
7:04 am
them have tested positive for coronavirus. the growing number of empty store shelves is a sign that we could be in for a long siege from this virus. dr. anthony fauci, head of the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases at the national institutes of health told a congressionaleeyestday t system in the u.s. is, quote, failing. he joins us now from washington. dr. fauci, good morning. i want to begin with family doctors because they're on the front lines of this fight against the virus and i want to play a part of an interview we did yesterday with a family doctor in new jersey discussing his frustrations with testing and then get your message to him. >> they want the doctors to start testing them in their own practices rather than sending everybody to the e.r. to get tested but they don't realize that we don't have the kits yet. it's really very frustrating because we can't diagnose these people. we can tell everybody to self-isolate, but people tend to not always listen to what we
7:05 am
tell them. and if we have people slipping through the cracks, they have the potential to infect many others before we finally catch up to them to test them. >> and that in a nutshell is how this spreads. dr. fauci, what's your message to doctors like that one? >> well, obviously, that's a very frustrating situation. as i mentioned at the hearing yesterday, the original system that was set up worked for a particular type of a public health response, patient/physician relationship, order a test, et cetera. it was not designed for a much broader blanketing of the country to have tests available. that's being rapidly corrected. admittedly, back when this particular individual had that experience, it did not work for that particular physician, but i'm looking forward now. we had a task force meeting yesterday and heard the kinds of test from the commercial sector that would be available, readily available, is really very, very close right now. very close. >> dr. fauci, you said there would be 4 million tests sent
7:06 am
out by the end of this week. are we on track for that? >> there's a difference between a test being sent out and the connection between the test and those who can actually administer the test. what we really need is to get the test available in venues that people could easily access. that's not been the case. as i mentioned just a moment ago, looking forward it is very likely we'll have that within the next week or so. >> dr. fauci, the fda just issued an emergency authorization for a test that could be administered in about 3 1/2 hours where you get the results back. how soon will folks be able to get those tests and who will be tested? >> well, the situation is that the test you're referring to is really what i was just mentioning a moment ago. something that would be available that is not just going through a multiple step process. the person comes in right now or
7:07 am
at least in the next few days to a week and has a symptomhat is suggestive of coronavirus, back a week or two or three ago, there were restrictions on that. those restrictions have been lifted by the fda. one of the restrictions where you had to have proven contact with someone who either has coronavirus or suspected of coronavirus. that's off the board now. if you go in, there's a good reason for you toet it you'll get a test. but it's going to be graded. it's not going to all happen tomorrow, the next day. it's going to start going like this. then relatively soon, that kind of issue that was just mentioned by the person who spoke hopefully will no longer be existing. >> there are going to be questions about what took so long but for now, i want to talk about the bigger picture, how this testing when it comes online, fits into a broader response. china has been praised for cutting the number of new cases in part by not having home quarantine or self-quarantine. anyone who tests positive is separated out from the
7:08 am
population. do we need more draconian measures like that in this country, even though we're a very different population? >> you can do what we call mitigation. right now, without necessarily having widespread testing. we certainly do want a lot more testing than we have right now. but you have to separate the difference between testing and not. the kinds of things you're hearing about, which we call social distancing, which means staying away from crowds. doing teleworking. where appropriate. now where appropriate, closing schools. canceling events that bring many, many people together. you can do that right now, and it's being done right now without having testing. obviously, we want to and will have considerably more testing in the future. but you don't wait for testing to do the mitigation. you can do it right now. >> dr. fauci, we've seen swift and unnerving changes to everyday american life. you've been in this position for 35 years or more.
7:09 am
can you say this is the most severe disruption to everyday living in this country in your lifetime? >> yes, of course. there have been an awful lot of challenges over the 36 years that i've been doing this. i mean, oshlgsbviously, hiv/aid a disruption for a select demographic group in the country, even though there was a lot of general fear. but with regard to disruption of everyday life, we've not seen that before. but we've not had this kind of a situation before. we've had pandemics. the 2009 h1n1 swine flu was a pandemic, but it was influenza. we were familiar with what influenza does. familiar with its seasonal capability. right now, there are a lot of unknowns. >> and those unknowns -- >> they're frightening people. >> you're right. those unknowns are the scary part of all this. dr. anthony fauci, thank you. the impact of the virus on students and their families is
7:10 am
especially hard right now. school closings across the u.s. now affect more than 5 million students. the national guard is handing out bags of supplies in new rochelle, new york. people in a one-mile radius around a cluster of cases have been asked to stay at home. our lead national correspondent david begnaud is in new york city where social distancing is starting to become a new way of life. david, that includes no broadway lights. >> yeah, michelle. the htd ead of the broadway lea was hoping to avoid that because people were still going and the livelihood of the performers count on it. it's really quiet here in times square. sure it's early in the morning and it's raining but it seems unusually quiet. the changes and closures around the country have been coming seemingly every hour within the last 24 hours. this morning, i want to walk you through some of the biggest changes. >> with 500 people or more. >> reporter: it was the governor
7:11 am
of new york, andrew cuomo, who closed the curtain on broadway. at least until mid-april. the signs announcing the closure are popping up all over midtown manhattan. 14 million people saw a broadway show last year. >> we're going to take very dramatic actions in that regard. to reduce the number of people in contagious environment. >> reporter: this is not the only tourist attraction closing. >> we were supposed to stay through sunday. not so much anymore. >> reporter: disneyland in california and disney world in florida will shut down sunday until the end of the month. >> we were hoping the park at least comps us or we can reschedule. we're probably out. we used a ton of our miles to get here. >> whatever the number is today, it will double in six days. >> reporter: meanwhile, ohio became the first of its least five states along with maryland, michigan, oregon and new mexico to cancel schools statewide indefinitely. ohio governor mike dewine has banned gatherings of more than 100 people. >> children in the state will
7:12 am
have an extended spring break. spring break will be a duration of three weeks. we will review it at the end of that. >> reporter: fear over the spread of the coronavirus is also affecting the sports world. the ncaa has canceled the march madness national basketball tournament. >> for the first time since 2001, my alma mater made it to the tournament. >> i just got the alert. and, there you go. what am i going to do? no tournament this year. >> reporter: major league baseball has shut down spring training and announced its least a two-week delay to the start of the season. and the boston marathon was postponed. >> i'd be really disappointed, but they got to do what the right thing is. >> reporter: indeed, they are looking to reschedule for some time in the fall. they have never canceled that race in the 124-year history of the boston marathon. anthony, as i toss it back to you, if you read social media,
7:13 am
it can drive up your anxiety. but i have to say, here in new york city, there does not seem to be panic on the streets. people are still out and about, long lines at the grocery store. but people still going about their daily lives as regularly as they can. >> yeah, david. from what i hear, a lot of empty shelves at the grocery store, too. for americans, each day they're told to stay home from work is a step closer to hardship. for example, nba stadium workers may struggle now that the season is suspended. the dallas mavericks' mark cuban is one team owner vowing to continue paying his workers. he explained why. >> it's not just about the players playing the sport. there's so many people that contribute. the workers at the arena. people that do part-time work for the mavericks. but they all work on an hourly basis like 80 plus million people in this country. when you're getting paid by the hour, there's a very good chance that you're living paycheck to paycheck. and these are people that work for me directly or indirectly.
7:14 am
i just don't want to leave them hanging. >> those stadium workers aren't alone. 53% of americans said they do not have emergency funds to cover a significant amount of time without a paycheck. cbs news business annualyst jil schlesinger joins us. about half of americans live paycheck to paycheck. how do you prepare for something like this? we don't know how long it's going to last. >> i don't think you can prepare at this point. you're in it. what we've always said when times are good you'd like to van emergency reserve fund, a rainy day fund. the rainy day has come. if you don't have this money, the most important thing that you can do right this minute is to really conserve your cash. be very careful. and i don't want you to maybe not pay your rent and i certainly don't want you to not pay critical bills, but anything that's not mission critical, you are conserving your cash. n, probl because we know that a lot of
7:15 am
financial difficulties occur as a result of health issues. and here we have it right in our faces. >> what should the government be considering? these proposals on payroll tax cuts on paid leave to help workers, what should be the focus? >> i think the focus should be the people most directly impacted. so it's not a payroll tax cut actually because those people are working who are going to be benefiting from that. so we want to help people who are those hourly employees. we want to have paid sick leave. we want to make sure that people are floated the money. a fascinating thing that's happening is that private industry is stepping in where the government is not. not just mark cuban, but walmart extended its paid leave and, remember, about a quarter of this country does not have paid leave. that's more than 30 million americans. this is something where i think we have to really flood the end zone with cash for these people to help them through this critical time. >> all right, jill, thank you very much. let's talk about how badly
7:16 am
the markets were hammered yesterday. look at this dow hit. a huge t10% loss. the worst loss since the financial crisis of 1987. what you are look at there is a 2300-point loss. president trump asked americans to be calm, saying the markets would recover. his comments came as aides negotiated with house speaker nancy pelosi on a plan to help people who have already taken a financial hit. paula reid is at the white house. a lot of people hoping this deal comes through. do they have it yet? >> we have some details from the house speaker. in a letter to her democratic colleagues, she revealed this deal will include free testing for the virus, paid emergency leave, enhanced unemployment insurance and food assistance. all of this meant to provide immediate economicimpacted by t the house could vote on this bill today.
7:17 am
>> we've resolved most of our differences and those we haven't, we'll continue the conversation because there will obviously be other bills. >> reporter: nancy pelosi expressed optimism last night after an all-day negotiation with administration officials over legislation aimed at blunting widespread financial damage from coronavirus. >> it's about medical family leave and unemployment insurance. >> reporter: pelosi has been working with steve mnuchin to hammer out the specifics, including paid sick leave. yesterday the president warned the democrats may try to pack the bill with unrelated provisions, though he didn't offer specifics. >> got to wait for them to get some of the goodies they haven't been able to get for the last 25 years. >> reporter: it's an accusation the democrats rejected. >> if giving infected workers paid sick leave is a goodie, then god help those who think that. >> reporter: the president's oval office address where he announced widespread travel restrictions on europe, along
7:18 am
with economic aid proposals failed to boost chaotic financial markets. the dow plunged more than 2,000 points yesterday. the biggest one-day drop in over 30 years. >> the market is going to be just fine. that's why i made these decisions. >> reporter: as the president sought to downplay the turmoil, the white house also said he will not be tested for coronavirus. days after coming into close contact with an aide to brazil's president at mar-a-lago who later tested positive for the virus. >> let's put it this way. i'm not concerned. >> but senator lindsey graham who was also at mar-a-lago announced yesterday that he is self-quarantining while he awaits the results of a virus test. graham is just one of several lawmakers close to the president who have self-quarantined after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for the virus. the president has said he has no plans to do the same. and just this morning, we are learning that a senior australian politician who tested positive for the virus was in washington just last week where
7:19 am
he met with attorney general william barr and the president's daughter ivanka. we have reached out to their offices to see if they plan to take any precautions. michelle? >> paula, we shall see. perhaps news will be maid. ahead, dr. jon lapook addresses questions over the good friday morning. today the last dry and mild day as we have big changes ahead. we are starting off with areas of fog along the coast and parts of the bay, especially the north bay, dealing with dense fog. i mild day ahead so partly sunny skies, low 60s in san francisco and mid 60s in oakland and mid 60s for san jose. a letter weekend and looking at cooler temperatures.

7:30 am
welcome back to "cbs this welcome back to "cbs this morning" from washington. i'm anthony mason. we still do not have a full picture of the coronavirus outbreak in the u.s. in part because of a major shortage in testing supplies. trump administration officials have promised millions of tests, but we've spoken to doctors and potential patients who say they're not getting them. >> joseph landa tried to get tested in new rochelle north of new york city. >> they pretty much asked me what i was feeling, which was scratchy throat, headache, achy bones, a little bit of fever, but since i didn't have 102 fever, they didn't want to give me the virus test.
7:31 am
and i think they're short of the virus test. i'm not as concerned about myself. it's the damage that my having the virus can do to the people around me. >> dr. jon lapook joins us to explain why this is such a problem as this crisis unfolds. good morning. >> good morning, michelle. >> we just heard from dr. fauci in our last half hour that he's optimistic that we're going to get more tests out there to more people. the question is everyone wants to get tested now if they have a sore throat, a slight fever. where do they go? and what should they do? >> well, yeah, what people don't want you to do is to just go into a doctor's office or go into a hospital emergency room unannounced, right? because you don't want to be meansng ir e'rking abo tripeope tment or aician.
7:32 am
if you don't have one, there are hot lines. new york state department of health has one. check with your department of health or call the hospital. and then they'll triage you and figure out what to do from a distance. if they decide you need testing they can give you instructions. everybody has protective gear when you do come in. >> the fda, jon, we talked about this earlier in the broadcast, issued an emergency authorization for a test that can give results in 3 1/2 hours. how important to get tests that we can get results faster? >> that's huge. there's such a bottleneck what's happening in the trenches. think about it. normally you go into a doctor's office. you have a sore throat and want a strep test. they can do it. no problem. here you need special protective gear. a lot of offices aren't set up for that. then they've got to send it to another lab. that lab may or may not be set up to process it. they may not have the technicians to do the test and then after that, you know, it's very -- it's complicated.
7:33 am
you have to extract the rna, the genetic material and do special things with special machines. it could take a day or two sometimes to get the results. it's a big deal if you can do it rapidly. even bigger deal if you can do it in your home. the gates foundation and others are working on that. >> maybe the phrase of the day has been flattening the curve. can you say what it is and how all these cancellations may help flatten that curve? >> right. people feel out of control. what can you do? is it worthwhile to do all this social distancing and hand washing? the answer is yes. i'm going to use a chalk board in front of me. without any measures the epidemic might go up and go down. that peak number of people who have the cases can overload the system. there may not be enough doctors. the doctors may get sick. other clinicians and health professionals may get sick. you may not have enough
7:34 am
ventilators or medical equipment. it's a stress on the system. if you can dual these measures and curve. instead of a peak up and down, it's slowly going out. it's still going up and the epidemic may last longer, but it's not putting such a stress on the system at that moment. so that would be a very big deal. does it work? yes, it works. we saw in china, the number of cases come down. new cases in south korea where they did aggressive testing. it was so clever, right? they had drive-in. people were safely able to get tested in their cars and we're seeing their cases go down. in the 1918 flu epidemic and pandemic we saw that social distancing worked. >> as scary as some of these cancellations can be, as unnerving, if that curve flattens, that's good. overseas, the wife of canadian prime minister justin trudeau tested positive -- i should say just north, not overseas. sophia trudeau is said to be doing well. the two will remain in isolation
7:35 am
for the next two weeks. sophie had just returned from london, overseas, and ian lee is in london with how the british government is changing its approach to fighting this virus. >> reporter: it's unclear if mrs. trudeau contracted the virus while she was here in london. the uk has seen a sharp rise in cases with more than 600 confirmed. but health experts believe the actual number could be closer to 10,0 10,000. >> this is the worst public health crisis for a generation. >> reporter: british prime minister boris johnson warned the worst is yet to come. >> i must level with you, level with the british public. more families, many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time. >> reporter: health experts predict the uk is four weeks from the infection levels of italy. in that country, the death toll has hit more than 1,000. facing a shortage of hospital beds, doctors are being forced to prioritize younger patients
7:36 am
with a higher survival rate. a team of chinese medical experts arrived in rome overnight bringing their experience in dealing with the outbreak. meanwhile, there is confusion at airports across europe. after president trump instituted a travel ban. >> we woke up and spent 4,200 to rebook flights and got to the airport and found out it wasn't applicable to u.s. citizens. >> reporter: from asia comes the promise of an end in sight. after months of being overwhelmed, empty hospital beds can now be seen in china. the country posted another record low for new cases at just eight. while more than 64,000 people have been released from the hospital. even south korea is showing signs of improvement after achieving the milestone of more recoveries than new infections. while down under, tom hanks and wife rita wilson seem in good spirits after contracting the virus. during their quarantine, he told fans on instagram they are taking it one day at a time.
7:37 am
there's really been a dealer's choice of responses to the pandemic here in europe. france, belgium, ireland and portugal have decided to shut down schools and cancel large events. meanwhile, here in the uk, they are asking people with symptoms to self-isolate, but schools remain open. anthony? >> ian lee in london, thanks. ahead, a plunge in ridership on transportation systems as the coronavirus crisis worsens. we'll look at whether it's safer to travel by train, plane or bus. we'll be right back. (crying) take you to uncontrollable highs. (muffled arguing) or, make you feel both at once. overwhelmed by bipolar i symptoms? ask about vraylar. some medications only treat the lows or the highs. vraylar effectively treats depression, acute manic and mixed episodes of bipolar i. full-spectrum relief of all symptoms.

with just one pill, once a day. elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about unusual changes in behavior or suicidal thoughts. antidepressants can increase these in children and young adults. report fever, stiff muscles, or confusion, which may mean a life-threatening reaction, or uncontrollable muscle movements, may be permanent. side effects may not appear for several weeks. metabolic changes may occur. movement dysfunction, restlessness, sleepiness, stomach issues are common side effects. when bipolar i overwhelms, vraylar helps smooth the ups and downs. when bipolar i overwhelms, (mom vo) we got a subaru to give him some ato reconnect and be together. and once we did that, we realized his greatest adventure is just beginning.

8:01 am
>> yes, of course, with regard to disruption. everyday life. we've not seen that before. we've not had this kind of square. closuresund the 2hours. it's hard to keep up. >> reporter: how do you prepare for something like this which is we don't know how long it's going to last. >> i don't think you can prepare at this point. you're in it. we've said, have an emergency fund, a rainy day fund. the rainy day has come. >> reporter: the nba has suspended its season until further notice. congratulations to the new york knicks. you're the best thing to happen to them all year. [ laughter ] welcome back to "cbs this morning" from washington. yeah, you could argue the knicks weren't playing even before the suspension. >> about the only consolation you have. that's true. >> indeed. the coronavirus pandemic is dramatically affecting the lives of many more americans every day. there are more than 1,700 cases of known illness in alabama,
8:02 am
west are the only states reporting no cases. at least 42 patients in the u.s. have died. >> oregon, michigan, maryland, ohio, and new mexico, plus the district of columbia have closed all their public schools to slow the spread of the virus. schools are also closed in new rochelle, a suburb just north of new york city where the national guard was deployed yesterday. soldiers are bringing food and supplies to people quarantined in a so-called containment area of about three square miles. >> the ncaa has canceled its men and women's march madness basketball tournaments. one of the year's biggest sports events. it also scrapped the rest of the championship schedule through june, including the college world series. that's a blow. on capitol hill, speaker nancy pelosi said the house could vote today on a bill to provide free coronavirus testing, paid

emergency leave, and more unemployment insurance. dramatic declines halted stock trading on wall street yesterday for the second time this week. the dow closed down 10%. that is the worst day on wall street since 1987. and over the past three weeks, the dow went from a record high to a downward bear market in just 19 days. that is the fastest slide since 1931. greg ip is chief economics commentator at the "wall street journal" and joins us now. greg, good morning. certainly a lot of economics to comment on at the moment. >> sure is, yeah. >> are we in recession territory? >> very likely yes. i mean, the shutdowns and activity that you're seeing across the economy are going to create a big hole in the economy in the month of march, possibly april. economists think that it's probably a 50% probability we're going into recession. but given how fast things are moving, i think likely we will have a recession. i think the many question is how severe is it, and how long does it last. those are things we're not certain about, and they will depend a lot on how effective
8:04 am
the government response will be. >> is there anything more that the federal reserve can do at this point? >> the federal reserve has done all it can do. frankly, interest rates are already quite low, almost at zero. and low-interest rates can help combat a virus or encourage frightened people to go to the theater. most of the effort has to come from other parts of government. mostly congress and the white house in terms of providing aid to those who are directly affected by the crisis and putting more cash into the hands of people still prepared to spend. >> the markets were not calmed by the president's speech the other day. what do they want to hear from the white house? >> one of the issues is the policy response from the president and others overseas has been confused and there's misleading information. that's understandable because nobody knows how far the epidemic is going to be. what i think markets want to hear is, first of all, a coherent and coordinated strategy rather than political bickering. they want to hear the things we know need to be done like more sick pay, enhanced unemployment insurance, are going to happen.
8:05 am
and they would like to see like the real firepower of the government really come to bear on it. even though the federal reserve doesn't have much ammunition, this country can borrow money and do a lot of stimulus. interest rates are below 1%. this is the kind of time the federal government needs to use those low borrowing costs for the help of the economy. >> let's talk about the firepower congress has. the president called on congress to pass pay payroll tax holiday. what would that be, and what affect might it have? >> individuals and employees together contribute about 10% to 15% of income as payroll tax. that could be lowered and would increase take-home pay. but if you're unemployed you're not going to benefit because you're not paying any payroll tax. the other problem, it is doled out over a full year as you get each paycheck. we know that a hit to the economy is coming down. so there's a indicates to be made that the priority -- a case to be made that the priority should be getting cash into people's hand now. president bush did that in 2008
8:06 am
quickly. and there are proposals right now that congress could quickly say let's send $1,000 to every adult out there. >> here's a silver lining, though -- the treasury secretary announced that he's going to extend the tax deadline. so folks, individual taxpayers including small businesses, hey, they get some more time. >> does that help? >> it does help. one of the things that's happening now is many businesses, especially small businesses, are going through a cash flow crunch. suddenly sales are not coming in the door, but they still have payroll to meet, taxes to pay, suppliers. this is when the banks and irs need like make accommodations and see if there are ways to help them get through this period. we know as bad as things are right now, it's not going to last forever. >> you mentioned a moment ago sending $1,000 to every american. the government could do that? >> it could, sure. >> how would that happen? >> as i said, the government did something similar in 2008. >> all right. standing by. >> thank you, greg.
8:07 am
greg ip, thank you. the testing shortage makes it difficult to find out who has the coronavirus. ohio's top health official says she suspects more than 100,000 people in her state have the virus even though only five people have tested positive so far. many are being told to self-quarantine if they may have come in close contact with someone who does have the virus. what does a self-quarantine look like? our dr. tara narula visited vlad duthiers at his apartment to give him some tips on how to protect your loved ones if you are asked to stay home. vlad has been working at his portman since wednesday when we closed our new york office after three employees tested positive there. it's nice to see the apartment. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. welcome to maison duthiers. i am not under quarantine. what's important, if you believe you have come into contact with the coronavirus, the cdc asks
8:08 am
that you self-quarantine for at least two weeks. if you've got no symptoms after that, you should be in the clear. if you are living in close quarters with others, self-quarantine can be a real challenge. >> it's hard and confusing. >> reporter: jessica haller lives in the bronx and has been home with her four kids since last tuesday. they're under precautionary quarantine after a case of coronavirus was confirmed in their school. >> we didn't really receive guidance about what to do. >> reporter: others facing quarantine are also unsure about the best ways to protect their loved ones if confined for two weeks. when our dr. tara narula visited my home -- >> you do want to try to keep your distance from your loved ones -- >> reporter: she pointed to places where contagion can spread. >> you want to be aware of high-touch services. things that you touchver and over, whether that's the faucet handle, a dourncountertop, a refrigerator door, all of these things you should be disinfecting. you want to use your own

8:10 am
food deliveries, grocery store deliveries, leave them outside of your door, leave the money outside of the door, too. she also pointed us to a cdc website page that has a list of approved cleaning agents, bleach, disinfectants wipes, they work. important to look at that page. also very importance -- if you are on medication and you need to be self-quarantined for two weeks, make sure you have enough on hand. anthony? >> a lot of very good advice there. thank you for the house tour, by the way. >> yes. >> lovely place you have there. >> would like to come over someday. >> any day. the crew's having break afterwards. >> they have their own plates, right? >> all right. coming up, we learned a u.s. senator extended his self-quarantine. ahead, texas republican ted cruz will t ♪

8:20 am
>> i've been a writer for almost 50 years, and i have never encountered a story that was such a combination of utter tragedy and happiness. >> reporter: the tragic part of the story says gene, a "washington post" columnist and authr of "one day," began to unfold two days after christmas, 1986. >> police got a call around 2:00 a.m. that shoots wets were fire argument politics. >> i went up to the apartment, i walked in, and a young 19-year-old female was laying on the floor. >> at 2:30 a.m. saturday, karen ermert was found shot three times in the head. >> reporter: rich lieb had just he's gone. date karen ermert. >> but that's not where the story ended.

something amazing came out of something horrifying. >> reporter: this is where the amazing part of the story comes in. the part that belonged to this young woman, eva baisey, fighting for her life. >> eva was dying. she was getting sicker and sicker. >> we have no idea what caused the heart failure. her heart began to fail. >> reporter: dr. ed lefrak, head of cardiac surgery knew she would not five without a heart transplant but time was running out. >> karen's primary care nurse -- >> it was a real possibility that she could die before she got a heart. many people do. >> reporter: then it came, the call they had all been waiting for. did you know anything about the donor at that point? >> no, i think they called me and told me it was a donor with a gunshot wound to the head. >> reporter: after shooting karen, mark wiley shot himself in the forehead.
8:22 am
he was pronounced brain s dead but his heart was still beating. >> in the perfect narrative, karen er me rt's heart would have been the one that saved eva baisey, but that's not how it went. it was the killer's that's right saved eva baisey. >> whoa. jim axelrod joins us from new york. a lot to unpack there. >> reporter: good morning, >> how did eva feel about receiving her new heart from a killer? >> reporter: well, this is the whole thing -- this story has such range. even at the -- like most transplant recipients, eva didn't want to know a lot of details. in fact, she didn't know a lot of the details until the story started being sold by gene weingarten. when we asked this question and you'll see it on "48 hours," she basically responds, "it's a muscle. it's a pump."
8:23 am
and you can imagine the emotions involved for somebody getting an organ. essentially there's no living donor. that just by definition there's always some sort of tragedy or sadness associated with the whole process. eva like most recipients just wanted to keep arm's length from the emotion. >> i love the man who discovered the story. a bit of a philosopher. he says there is no such thing as an ordinary day. what does he mean, and do you believe it yourself? >> reporter: well, at the end of this week, i think most people would agree that there is no such thing as an ordinary day. c ouplafe o ask most people is there an ordinary day, everybody gets into a routine and everybody feels like, oh, just another day. gene weingarten's whole point is that somewhere in som and you'll see story tomorrow ni fm w did, lilly a date out o th sething tr

welcome back to "cbs this morning." texas republican ted cruz is extending his self-quarantine. he says he found out last night that he interacted with a second person who tested positive for the coronavirus. cruise is the first u.s. senator to begin a coronavirus self-quarantine. he first took the step after interacting with someone who tested positive at last month's conservative political action conference. president trump and vice president pence also attended that conference. only on "cbs this morning," senator cruz joins us by phone from houston. good morning, senator. thank you for being there. >> good morning. great to be with you. >> to start with, did medical officials recommend you do this, or is this another self-quarantine? >> this is another self-quarantine just out of an abundance of caution. the first interaction i was was
8:31 am
at cpac. a brief interaction with someone who tested positive and is ill. the doctors advised media at thetime that given how brief the interaction was and given that nine days had passed when i was informed with no simple volumes at all that self-quarantine wasn't medically necessary. i decided to do it anyway out of an abundance of caution. that quarantine ended yesterday. and i have to admit, i was relie relieved, looking forward to taking my family out to dinner tonight. and then last night i got the news that i had encountered, interacted a second individual who has tested positive. a spanish government official who came to my office in d.c. on march 3rd. i had a meeting in the conference room with him for about 20 minutes. and he a that interaction, i'm consulting with medical authorities as i did the first time. but my intention is simply to extend the self-quarantine to march 17th, which is a full 14 days from the interaction. i remain strong and healthy and have no symptoms. and based on the medical advice
8:32 am
i've received, there's very little reason to be concerned. but given the gravity of this health crisis, it is also wise to be prudent and when you've encountered people who have tested positive, the best way to prevent the spread of this disease is social distancing and preventing unnecessary potential transmission. >> senator to that point, two of your colleagues, in fact, senator ron johnson and representative chris smith, are also photographed with santiago. you mentioned that folks should be ld that also extend to president trump who was at the cpac conference? >> well, look, i'd leave it to each person in consultation with medical officials and their doctors to make those assessments. i don't know with whom they interacted. on my end, i spent a great deal of time speaking with the cdc, speaking with hhs, speaking with
8:33 am
the harris county and the city of houston health officials. all of them told me the risk of transmission were quite low because my interaction with the cpac individual was limited and nine days had passed. in this instance, with the spanish official, the interaction was longer. but it's been a full ten days. and i remain without symptoms -- i just think it is -- it is more prudent to not put anyone else potentially at risk. >> and speaking of prudence, the president insists he doesn't need to be tested. should he be? >> i can tell you what the physicians have told me which is that if you're asymptomatic, if you're not sick, they've test the tests are not effected. you don't have a sufficient viral load to work. so they've advised me testing doesn't do any good unless you're already sick. >> have you been tested, sir? >> pardon? >> have you been tested? >> i have not because the physicians all advised me not to get tested unless i got sick. they said, if you get sick, then
8:34 am
you should get tested. the test is medically ineffective if you're not sick. now i do think there are a great many public policy steps we need to take to prevent this outbreak. and i think testing is an important piece of it. we need to do a much better job getting tests in the field. allowing private labs to move forward. i was gratified to see the mayo lab has made progress in developing a rapid test. we need to get protective materials like masks and surgical gloves and disinfectants out in much larger numbers. and we need to be focusing on the critical resources for hospitals. things like ventilators. that if if escalates as we've seen in china, as we've seen it do in italy and iran, we have to make sure our hospitals have sufficient equipment to care for people to who are seriously ill. >> another component is the public reaction. we each have a role to play in containing and mitigating the effects of this illness. there's a poll out this morning showing that republicans are
8:35 am
much less concerned than democrats about contracting the illness. and if they're less concerned, the question is will they take the precautions seriously. as a republican senator, what is your message to republican voters, republican citizens, about how seriously they should take this outbreak? >> well, the last i checked, this isn't a democratic virus or a republican virus. this is a -- a dangerous virus. this is a serious public health crisis. we need to take it seriously. now at the same time, we shouldn't give in to panic or hysteria. we need to follow the science, listen to the medical professionals and the doctors. the doctors are advising there are a lot of things we can do. for seniors, if you are -- if you are a senior particularly if you have serious health conditions, the medical advice is stay home. i can tell you what i've advised both of my parents. my dad is 81, my mom's 85. i've advised both of them just stay home. i told my mom, you don't need to go out. stay in your apartment. if you need food, order it on line. but -- just right now, those who
8:36 am
are most vulnerable to the -- to this virus are seniors with other health issues. and we need to be wise and prudent. we also need do things like wash our hands regularly, soap and water is very effective on this virus. avoid going to large gatherings. i'll say as a diehard basketball fan, it's been heartbreaking seeing the nba and march madness canceled. i understand why. >> if you're a knicks fan, senator. it's good news. issia ur family self-quarantine -- is your family self-quarantining, senator? >> my family is not, and what we've been doing, what the medical advice has been is simply to keep my distance in the house. i'm staying at least six feet away. i'm primarily in another room. i've been staying primarily in the office or bedroom. but keeping a distance from them, given that i have no symptoms, what the medical professionals have advised is that the risk of transmission is doubly remote. that my interaction was limited,
8:37 am
and i'm asymptomatic. >> senator cruz, thank you so much for joining us from your extended self-quarantine now. and right now we will give you a check of your local weather. stay with us. first rodeo

i believe mr. anthony mason is going first. >> i am. i am. there's a surprise development in the fight for equal pay by the women's national soccer team. last night, carlos cordeiro, president of the u.s. soccer federation, quit. as we reported, the soccer federation claimed in court filings this week that female players have less physical ability and responsibility than players on the men's national team. the filing which cordeiro said he did not review in file led to major backlash. cordeiro's replacement will be cindy parlow cohn, a soccer star and hall of famer. she becomes the organization's first female president. >> isn't that interesting. >> they look like they like him. protest -- >> you had such a backlash, had backlash to this. he acknowledged he did not like the wording but said he had not reviewed it. and she should have. consequently he is out. >> the real surprising news

auction. it could fetch close to $190,000. the small flip book has 31 pages. it contains quotes from the first "harry potter" book, along with some illustrations there penned by the author herself. the auctioneers expect a lot, and i mean a lot of interest. any time anything "harry potter" pops up, i'll all over it. >> kids at home wondering, can i get it mom and dad? chris and rich robinson of the black crows performed at the benefit concert "love rocks nyc" last night. ♪ there was no audience at the beacon theater due to coronavirus precautions. those who watched the livestream saw a small miracle. the robinson brothers, famous for their family feuds, reunited. ♪ fans of the band the black won

8:50 am
but i was relentless first. relentless about learning the first song we ever danced to. about teaching him to put others first. about helping her raise her first child. and when i was first diagnosed, my choice was everyday verzenio. it's the only one of its kind that can be taken every day. it gives us more time without cancer progressing. verzenio is the only cdk4 & 6 inhibitor approved with hormonal therapy that can be taken every day for postmenopausal women with hr+, her2- mbc. diarrhea is common, may be severe, or cause dehydration or infection. at the first sign of diarrhea, call your doctor, start an anti-diarrheal, and drink fluids. before taking verzenio, tell your doctor if you have fever, chills, or other signs of infection. verzenio may cause low white blood cell counts, which may cause serious infection that can lead to death. life-threatening inflammation of the lungs can occur. talk to your doctor if you have new or worsening trouble breathing, cough, or chest pain. serious liver problems can happen. symptoms include tiredness, appetite loss, stomach pain, and bleeding or bruising. blood clots that can lead to death have occurred. tell your doctor if you have pain or swelling
8:51 am
in your arms or legs, shortness of breath, chest pain, rapid breathing or heart rate, or if you are pregnant or nursing. my relentless reason: it's them. my choice with my doctor: it's verzenio. ask your doctor if everyday verzenio is right for your first treatment.
