Transcript for CDC to weigh changing indoor mask rules
We are going to begin with the coronavirus emergency. The white house now says the U.S. Is turning a corner as case numbers and hospitalizations continue to fall, and yesterday on "This week," Dr. Anthony Fauci told me we can start to discuss the lifting of mask mandates even indoors. The CDC saying over 152 million Americans have received at least one dose of the population. Victor Oquendo is in Miami, one of several offering shots to travelers in an effort to increase vaccinations as demand is on the decline. Good morning, Victor. Reporter: Good morning, robin. This is one of two vaccine sites opening up at Miami international airport. You have a few people in line. This is where everyone will register. They're offering the pfizer vaccine to airport workers, their family and friends as well as travelers. The shot will go into arms. The idea will is simple. Make access easier as we turn the corner. With the U.S. Gaining more ground in the fight against covid-19, and cases at a seven-month low, Dr. Anthony Fauci on "This week" telling George, it might soon be time to further relax restrictions like wearing masks indoors. The CDC will be almost in realtime, George, updating their recommendations and their guidelines, but yes, we do need to start being more liberal as we get more people vaccinated. We are turning the corner. The light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter. Reporter: The U.S. Just below 2 million shots a day, down nearly 40% in the last month. Louisiana and Mississippi turning down vaccines. Only one-third of adults there are vaccinated. All eyes are now on vaccines in children. The fda expected to authorize 12 to 15-year-olds for pfizer's vaccine as soon as today. Dakota Morgan died from covid. She asked me what happened to her, and what did she do to deserve this, and I told her that she didn't do anything to deserve this. Reporter: Her parents say she was a healthy teen who loved basketball. She tested positive on Sunday. By Monday, he condition deteriorated. They told us to come in and say good-bye just until she made it to the hospital. I didn't think that it was good-bye forever. Reporter: Her family now urging everyone to get vaccinated as are officials across the country who get more creative in their incentives. In Detroit for example, they're offering people $50 to get vaccinated. Bars offering up free drinks with vaccinationvaccination, and Miami is in on it. Shots for shots. George? Great.
