6:06 pm
disease physician with stanford getting answers. >> the safest thing to do is assume that any sort of new sniffles or sore throat or cough or anything even mild like that should be considered omicron until proven otherwise. proving it otherwise is tough because your antigen test can be negative early on in the disease course, whereas pcr tests, if it is negative, at that point in time you do not have omicron. >> he stresses both tests help detect virus spread. >> spread continues to cause issues at health care facilities, not just for staff but patients as well. >> our major issue is with omicron causing more mild illness that puts people out of work. >> he is director for illness were sent county. he says they have seen an increase in patients but during this omicron surge, many people being hospitalized have already been in the hospital. >> it is less of a concern of the severity of covid and severe respiratory illness than it was before, even though it is still occurring, to some degree, and more around issues of staffing and health-care workers calling out sick. >> the southbay situation similar to what sub -- similar to what other parts of the bay area are facing. though there is cause for concern in santa clara county, dr. kemal says things still are
