7:03 am
"eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. -- captions by vitac -- jooirjs new mexico the centers for disease control say a man in dallas tested positive for the deadly virus. efforts are under way this morning to track down anyone who had close contact with him. >> and in a moment we're going talk to the head of the cdc about containing this virus, but first manuel bojorquez is at the hospital in dallas, and that's where the victim and some first responders are now in isolation. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is where, indeed, that patient is being treated in isolation. it's texas health presbyterian hospital. state officials also say they're monitoring what they describe as a handful of people who had close personal contact with that individual as the cdc tries to ease the fears of the american public. >> now, our staff is trained and
7:04 am
prepared to take care of patients with a variety of infectious diseases, including ebola virus disease. >> reporter: the cdc says the patient left liberia on september 19th, arriving in dallas on the 20th. hospital officials say the infected patient initially came in friday night seeking care but was sent home. it wasn't until his second visit two days later by ambulance that hospital staff learned the patient recently arrived in the u.s. from west africa. >> that's when the information became more clear, but even then it wasn't completely clear and it's still evolving. >> the unidentified man who flew to the u.s. to visit relatives is the first traveler to bridge it stateside. they emphasize since the patient did not show symptoms until days after landing the a personals on the flight are not at risk of contracting ebola. >> it's not contagious before
7:05 am
you develop symptoms. that's not true of other diseases. for example, influenza virus is transmittable before you get sick. that's certainly true of many other diseases but not this particular disease. >> reporter: the cdc has also dispatched a team here in texas to help trace any other potential contact that patient may have had. the emergency crew who transported the individual has also been isolated. they will monitor their symptoms for 21 days. the ambulance has been quarantined as a precaution. charlie? >> manuel, thanks. president obama talked by phone yesterday. he's with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> how will you find out whether this person transferred this to someone else and how will you find out who those people are? >> the bottom line is we're
7:06 am
stopping this in the u.s. what we do in public health day in and day out to protect americans is something called contact tracing. we identify everyone he could have been in touch with and then we monitor each of those people every day for 21 days. if they develop a fever or other sympto sympto symptoms, they get isolated. by doing that we stop the chain from continuing. that's the tried and true health measure that will contain this case from spreading widely. >> does that include the people on the plane? >> that's a natural question. let's step back for a minute and understand what the reality is here. the bottom line is this man was not infectious when we got on the plane. we check 100% of the people from liberia with fever. he didn't have fever. anyone with fever is not allowed to board the plane. he didn't develop his first symptom until after four days of
7:07 am
arriving in the country. the incubation can be as much as 21 days. for those four days and the days he was on the plane, he could not have infected anyone. >> he could have had symptoms for days before he was isolated. how many people did he come in contact with? >> that's a question we're in dallas to find out. we have members of his household that we'll be monitoring. there may be several people in the community. we'll go through every minute of each day with his family to understand who might have exposed and any health care he might have had to see if health care workers were exposed. >> dr. frieden, when americans hear ebola has spread to america, they're scare and wo y worried. what do we tell them. >> the challenge is -- although
7:08 am
it's going to take a lot of work and intense monitor, there could be another case or two arising with with those who had contact with him in those four days, particularly family members or others who hat close exposure, but really the bigger picture is this is the reflection of an epidemic in west africa, and we have served to rush to the epidemic. stopping it is the single most important way to help americans. >> thank you. this morning another security breach around president obama. the cdc was visiting two weeks ago and a security guard who had previous convictions shared the elevator. they found out later he carried a gun. >> secret service agent julia pearson did not mention the incident when she testified on
7:09 am
capitol hill yesterday. bill plante was there with two other security breaches. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the director faced a bipartisan barrage of criticism from the house oversight committee. they want to know why omar gonzalez was able to leap that fence all the way down there on pennsylvania avenue and then travel 70 yards across the north lawn of the white house and wind up at the front door, which is behind that portico. now, the director did acknowledge in the classic washington formulation that mistakes were made. >> we all are outraged within the secret service. >> director pearson answered questions for more than three hours tuesday confirming gonzalez was able to get more than 100 feet into the white house but offering little explanation. >> i agree that mistakes were made and the proper protocols
7:10 am
were not followed. it's unacceptable. >> she pointed to security upgrades at the white house including a new automatic emergency lock on the door and she defended the agency's choice to conduct an internal investigation. but committee members were far from satisfied. >> an internal investigation by the secret service was not sufficient. >> i wish to god you were protecting the white house like you're protecting your reputation here today. >> i believe you've done a disservice to the president of the united states. >> it was said they could have used force. >> don't let them get close to the family. don't let them get into the white house ever. and if it happens, i will have their back. >> they recognized him from a previous encounter, but they didn't stop him because he had violated no laws. the secret service won't say
7:11 am
whether anyone has been punished as part of the investigation into the fence jumping but oversight committee chairman darrell issa has confirmed -- >> omar gonzalez was indietd in fid real court on tuesday. the white house says it still has full confidence in the secret service and director pearson and she has not offered to resign. charlie? >> bill, thanks. british announces their first mission. they fired with two missiles in the air over baghdad. they say that mission supporting iraqi forces was successful. president obama discussed isis with hi top national security tuesday. that includes james clapper.
7:12 am
remember on sunday he said clapper admitted the intelligence community underestimated isis. the president is accused of dodging responsibility. cbs contributor michael morell was part of that community. he served as deputy director of the cia until last year. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> let's get specific. did the intelligence community underestimate the threat of isis? >> there is what wi call strategic warning and what we call tactical warning. strategic warning is it's going to be a really bad winter. tactical warning is it's going to snow 2 feet next week. what happened in this case is there was strategic warning. the intelligence community said isis is getting stronger for a variety of reasons and the in l intelligence community said it's getting weaker.
7:13 am
>> that warning has been going on for more than a year, correct? >> correct. but what the intelligence community didn't do, norah, is say next week or the week after next isil is going to make a major move in iraq and what we didn't do is say in response to that the iraqi military was going to fall apart. >> michael, did they do that because in february -- in january fallujah fell. >> so strategic warning is something that we're very, very good at. tactical warning is very difficult because it involves getting in the minds of the adversary, and that's too tough. >> there are two reports. one is the white house was so busy at time it did not appreciate the warning that it was getting. that doesn't make a lot of sense to me, charlie. there are a lost individuals across the national community who sees the intelligence. ice not the president to react
7:14 am
to the intelligence he's seeing. it's the responsibility of senior officials across the national security. they should have reacted. >> the other thing the intelligence community is upset with what the president said on "60 minutes" and is pushing back. >> i think two things. one is at the lower level of the intelligence community, people who have had experiences before are probably feeling this for the first time and reacting a little bit. there was a saying in the intelligence community there are no such things as policy failure, only intelligence failures. every president that i served with did this and i think every future president is going to do this. so i don't think at senior levels people in the intelligence community are upset. >> mike, thank you so much. >> you're welcome, charlie. the president's "60 minutes" comments also affected new
7:15 am
jersey governor chris christie. >> president obama has certainly received his fair share of heat for telling "60 minutes" that the intelligence community. it wasn't how he said. >> they underestimate. don't say they underestimated, mr. president. he did, the administration. you need as a leader to be accountable. >> some people could say, though, governor, you might have used the word "they" when the bridge scandal happened. you have recently been cleared. some people could say you might have used the word "they" during that time. >> i stood up the day after it all came public.
7:16 am
i said i'm accountable. even though i wasn't, i stood up and said i'm accountable. i stood up. >> i remember. >> never once did i skirt my responsibility. that's all i'm talking about. >> find out why some are saying the new jersey governor is showing a softer side these day. he may not agree with that. >> and a thinner side. >> he does agree with that. >> looking forward to that. thank you so much. in boston, new fears about enterovirus. doctors are treating four children with muscle weakness or paralysis. in denver, ten children with similar symptoms are being treated. four of them are infected with the virus. the cdc says the enterovirus has sickened 451 people in 41 states. >> droves of protesters in hong kong are fighting against the chinese government. here's the scene this morning.
7:17 am
thousands of peaceful demonstrators aren't backing down despite rainy weather. seth doane is in hong kong where the crowds want the government to stop interfering with an election three years away. >> good morning. as you can see, protesters are jammed the streets. we're standing in one of the main thoroughfares that cuts through the heart of hong kong. today is a national holiday which means many people are not at work, which means they're on the streets. to mark the sounding of the communist people's remoney lick of china, flags were raised in hong kong today. but reaction to a helicopter pulling china's flag was hardly diplomatic. and he was heckled during his speech. this newly released video taken
7:18 am
over the weekend shows the heavy-handed police crackdown. one protester who's back is to the police is grabbed by an officer and sprayed with pepper spray. this seg nature tool was put to use overnight, this time not protecting from police, but from moefr nay tur. when the plane cleared the view of a drone overhead showed the crowd united. american michael davis has been a law professor in hong kong for nearly 30 years. >> we're talking about one election, 2017, years away. how important is this really? >> it is really important because what they're witnessing kind of dysfunctional government that seems to represent beijing more than it repts lgs hong kong. >> reporter: of course, the question is how long can the protesters stay on the streets.
7:19 am
we're told they believe it is unlikely that the central communist government would heed to the demands of the protesters. they also believe they say china's president ping is in a predicament. if he allows these protests to continue, it may make their party appear weak. if they use force and crack down on the protesters, they have to suffer the course kwepss. could be that both sides are waiting for the other to make a mistake. >> what a dilemma. >> he phrased it right. very difficult.

8:12 am
so-called concussion crisis may be creating a more serious problem. jan crawford is at a high school with the new problem. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. doctors are starting to sound the alarm bells on what they say is a disturbing trend, unjustified things because of the hype in the media and a sharp decline in kids participating in sports and that they say is much more harmful to kids long term than a concussion. at this practice field in maryland it still looks like lots of boys are playing america's favorite sport. >> linemen stay here. >> reporter: but a few years ago breck had a waiting list of players hoping to join his program. now he's bare willing filling some of his rosters. >> our numbers are down. some of our competitors are dwindling. so the league has reduced from 17 we're now down to five teams. >> reporter: just in the last if
8:13 am
you'res. >> yes. literally the last four. >> reporter: football isn't the only sport taking a hit. from 2008 to 2012, participation in sommer and baseball is down 7%. basketball is down more than 8%. experts say one of the main reasons for the decline, fear of concussions fueled by media coverage of high-profile lawsuits of players taking repeated hits throughout their careers in the nfl. but now a growing number of doctors are saying we've gone too far. medical science doesn't justify parents' fears about concussions in youth sports. dr. william barr is director of neurosigh kol jiff at langone medical center. >> there's no fear that a child is at risk for any long-term effects. >> reporter: in fact, the doctors say the danger from kids with inactivity is greater than
8:14 am
harm from concussions. >> somebody says i like playing soccer but my mother and father are worried i'm going to get a concussion. therefore, i choose not to play socce soccer. that's a tragedy. >> a tragedy. >> yeah. >> why? >> there's not enough to support that decision. >> reporter: he and other doctors are emphasizing there's no definitive evidence that a concussion causes long-term damage and there's no scientific evidence supporting current recommendations for treating concussions such as extended periods of rest often for weeks. >> reporter: while doctors recommend immediately removing kids from play. they say long extended rest can mimic and prolong concussive symptoms. you're saying that message is not necessarily based on anything.
8:15 am
>> right. and it's potentially counterproductive. there is some data that suggests it may be counterproductive or potentially harmful. >> reporter: harmful because it's proven that kids need exercise not only to head off obesity and heart disease but for brain development and learning. >> what has happened now is it's gone so far that parents are afraid to have their children participate in these sports. >> that's a fear that teresa and irbin thompson know well. their 16-year-old daughter maddy was diagnosed with a concussion after a game. >> at first the doctor said no tv, cell phone, no stimulation. rest, rest, rest. >> reporter: but two weeks of forced rest became a year and her symptoms persisted. >> a lot of it was like feeling emp
8:16 am
empty. i was dizzy a lot. i didn't remember a lot of things. a lot of it was just always being tired. >> it's horrible to watch your daughter go through that. you don't want them to hurt. you don't want them to be lonely. you don't want them to be sad. >> reporter: today matty is back on the soccer field playing with a different coach and team after a doctor at children's hospital of philadelphia said to heal she needed to play. >> his recommendation was get maddie out there. she needs to be with the girls. like they say, take the bubble wrap off, mom. she needs to get back to her life. >> was it important to you that you play soccer again? >> yes. >> why was that? >> i think growing up it was just a part of me. it was just hard to have that go.
8:17 am
>> reporter: now, maddie's parents are actually suing her old coach saying that because he kept her in the game that made her injury so severe and they hoopering to raise awareness of proper concussion management and that, the doctors say, is exactly what has to happen. charlie? >> jan, thanks. >> new way to look at it. >> you guys are parents. >> sports are so important for kids. >> i agree. >> can't you imagine looking at that and kids saying, mom, let me play. >> jan's done some important original reporting. the assumption is how dangerous these concussions are and there's another side of the story. >> thank you, jan. a world classic violinist mays a concert for commuters. >> find out why joshua bell loves an audience on the move even if they don't love him back. that's next on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by cottonelle.

good morning. >> reporter: good morning. joshua bell gave a concert here at union station yesterday. yes, a cavernous train station and yet this artist who has played every concert hall around the world told us the reaction here was one of the best of his life. here's why. from the very first note of this concert, joshua bell simply owned the place. the audience knew who he was and they knew they were hearing brilliance. >> oh, i thought it was fabulous today. >> i am in ecstasy. it thought it was one of the most wonderful experiences i've ever had. >> reporter: but the last time bell played in a washington train station the experience was not wonderful. that's him on the left playing unannounced in a metro station more than seven years ago. it was a stunt design by the
8:23 am
"washington post" to see if busy workers passing by would stop for beautiful music. they did not. more than a thousand people went by. seven people stopped. the article that resulted won the post and author gene weingarten a pulitzer prize for its observation on art and life. >> it was about the way we overschedule our lives where people had to be at a certain place at a certain time, bing, bang, go to work, and they couldn't take three minutes. >> reporter: your point was americans are too busy. >> yeah. americans are too busy. >> reporter: keep in mind that in the world of music, joshua bell is violin royalty. he's recorded more than 40 cds. he's the star of an hbo special this month on the mentoring of student musicians. but something about that one day made him that guy. >> you were the guy who played in the metro. >> sometimes i get people telling me the story, did you
8:24 am
hear about the guy playing in the metro. i go, that was me. >> reporter: so union station was his washington comeback and everyone knew it. he played the same music but wanted it heard. >> this time not only did they come out in numbers. the warmth -- it was almost like maybe they were making up for it because they all knew the story. they made up for it like 100-fold and i felt that outpouring of warmth. but this is a t final chapter, kind of a book end to a personal experience and it's a nice piece of closure. >> reporter: any people will tell you live music by nature is a two-way conversation, the performance and the reaction. when the final performance ended and it washed over, this was the audience and reaction that bell had been missing for seven years. one of the busiest train stations in america stood still at that moment. there were 1, 500 people in the hall. joshua bell also joked at the time his only regret yesterday was that he hadn't opened his

8:33 am
station who says she feels ecstasy when listening to the music. >> i wonder if the woman says side effects include -- no comments, charlie? >> no. i was going to add, aur four hours something. the iphone is including fashion trend. they're considering bigger pockets to accommodate the iphone 6 plus. the 5 1/2-inch screen is too big to stuff into pockets. they're looking into changes. >> that's unbelievable. >> which part? >> i'm not sure what we're talking about now. >> jeans or viagra. >> that they're going to make the pants bigger and the pockets to fit the iphone. >> that's for the viagra. >> okay. he said it. not me. >> and the emmy award goes to charlie rose.

8:36 am
side street, we know how fast you're going. today we have what's called the connective citizens program. we're taking for the first tile all the information from those drivers and connecting it with information that's been locked up inside your local departments of transportation around the world. >> what's so cool about this is you save people time, money, you let us know where the cops are, if they're out in plain sight and hidden, and when you get in your car, if you turn on waze, you redirect us even mid route if we see something that's messed up. >> that's right. it's all messed up. >> what about texting and driving. i was worried about that. >> good question. so most of the information is passive. we're anonymously collecting your speeds as you drive. we're getting your voice activated driving. you can by voice tell us -- report accident, report hazard and we'll literally block your screen if you're the driver. you have to pick passenger enter any more information than that.
8:37 am
>> wow. isn't that a good thing? >> it is. it's a very good thing. >> how are you getting this information from the department of transportation? >> so -- good question. we're working with everybody from lance from los angeles to jakarta to costa rica. it's different for everyone. we're getting often just the feeds. everything they know about the construction, what's dwoig to be closed. we don't want to be the service sending you over the closed bridge so we're trying to unlock that information. in some cases it's about flooding and weather and a that's happening in real time and they're literally contacting us immediately. >> i'm so excited about this part. the sharing part. the sharing trip. so for instance if i was going to see charlie in his country home, i could e-mail him -- chris licht said never going to happen. i could track you so you could
8:38 am
have the dinner ready. >> or leave. >> he doesn't mean that, america. >> of course, i don't. i love herring love her, love her. >> people always say when are you coming, when are you coming. you can eliminate that conversation. >> that's right. why are people texting. i'm running five minutes late. you can just follow. >> not only great service but i know the white house contacted you guys during superstorm sandy because they want some of your information. >> yeah. they -- that's absolutely right. we got the call because there was a fuel crisis right after hurricane sandy. no one knew what gas stations were open, there were three-hour-long lines and they contacted us and said how can you reach out to your users and let us know. it's the first time we sent out the information to our user asking if anyone knew what was open. we got 10,000 responses and

the new cbs drama "stalker" premieres tonight. the series follows a special lapd detective unit that investigates talking incidents and threats. it stars maggie q. she plays the head of the stalking unit. this time she's the lieutenant beth davis. >> the red dress you wore last tuesday was hot. like your haircut. it really get ms. e going. >> how could laurie not call the cops after reading something like that? >> she's a strong professional. being a victim is a sign of weakness. it's very human to dismiss a stalker or worse accept that it's a part of your daily life. mag gi q is as the table. when i said she's coming where's the rest of her last name?
8:44 am
>> what does it stand for? >> my father's irish. it's quigley. nobody could pronounce it. it was simple. they couldn't say it so they shortened it to maggie q. your mom's what? >> my mother is vietnamese and my father is irish/polish. >> maggie q. we'll go with that. i watched it in preparation for tonight. i have to tell you if your mission was to scare the bejesus out of me, mission accomplished. that was so trouble and so scary , i'm worried. what are you feeling? >> it's a troubling topic. i was so disturbed by how many people suffer with this. the show's not even out yet. when i was announcing the show, the amount of women that come up to me already and it's not even out to say, hey, maggie, this happens to me, i want to tell you about my story. >> most people think it's a celebrity being stalked.
8:45 am
did you say it's 90%? >> celebrities and plus. celebrities are harder to stalk if you think about it. it's not an easy thing because they're more protected and obviously when their stories come out in the public, you know more about them and there's more focus burke when you're an average everyday person and you go to the grocery store and some man's bothering you, you go to o the police, there's a reason why there's a special unit behind it. >> what's behind it, people who stalk? >> the reason i took it is the tie between these people committing the crimes and mental illness. and this is an issue that's now very topical at the moment in the media. it's prevalent and a problem because we're not addressing it the way wi should. every detective, every one of them, there are eight, have a degree in mental illness or background. so it's a different way of preventing crime. it's not the same as -- >> tell us about the character you play, lieu ten nanlt beth
8:46 am
davis. >> yeah. she's great. i like her. i'm getting older in that i can't sort of play these strong women roles where it has to do with physically, you know, intimidating. i now have moved into a space where the space i portray is very internal. she's lived quite a life. we figure out the story the first part. >> it must be tough going to work with dill p mcdermott. >> yeah. sometimes i think -- >> is he just as dreamy in person? >> he's dreamy. not just talented but the kindest subtsequen kindest gentlest co-star someone can have. >> did you say you've been stalked? >> i have. it's debilitating. terrorizing. any time something's out in the open it's okay.
8:47 am
