8:04 am
covid-19 variant since january of this year. the latest variant found in india is the first confirmed case in their lab. a sign held up for it. say the virus is not slowing down. >> the new variant dubbed double mutant was found in stanford's clinical viral. the g lab last week. scientists in the bay area are trying to figure out how more infectious mutation is. the mutations are in the specific. >> spike >> receptor sites. so it affects the ability of the virus to buy into that place. and it's trying to get to ucsf infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin-hong says to avoid transmission. >> the public needs to continue to follow health guidelines wear masks, social distance and the weed to break the chain of transmission is either being completely see all the time. >> and getting the vaccine so that, you know, the virus is trying to find another nose out, in fact. but if that
8:05 am
person is protected, it can really go for that. beyond that. that's why doctor dean winslow infectious disease specialist at stanford says it is important to get the covid vaccine. i think until we get at least 75 or 80% or more of u.s. population vaccinated against covid-19. we're going to continue to even small outbreaks of cases covid cases in india have been plummeting since september last year. but cases and deaths began spiking last month. >> and there is no data on vaccine efficacy against the new variant. but doctor chin-hong is cautiously optimistic given the fact pfizer vaccine is not to be effective against the south african variant. >> from the most recent data. >> i feel. >> optimistic that our current vaccines would also cover. >> this particular variant again, we will wait for more data but that is my gut sense at this moment. in the meantime, scientists stressed a need for more labs like this one. >> to find and stop these
8:06 am
variants. this is going to be sort of early that that we really need to have typically if we want to the vaccines later in the year next year to do even better cover some of describe variance. >> meantime, researchers here at stanford are screening for 7 more presumed cases of the new variant found in india. the lob screen hundreds of viral samples from people across the bay area in palo alto. gayle ong kron 4 news. >> california has set a date now for went concerts and live sporting events even wedding receptions can resume. and it's april 15th indoor ev-nts. that's when they'll be allowed in the red orange and yellow tears capacity will be different depending on that here. for instance, 10% is what the capacity will be in the red tier and then it will expand its counties move through the various status is some venues like oracle park will require something extra. they'll want proof of a negative covid test or full vaccination of proof to get
8:07 am
inside masks, social distancing. they will all still be required. >> as we reopen things. you know, i think you need do your own risk assessment. self risk assessment. and if you're 85 years old and have, you know, numerous underlying risk factors. if you're pregnant woman. i think he'd be go slow on the on these things and be careful and not put yourself at risk. >> doctors say that you should be aware of your own risk factors and underlying conditions because those can change over time. >> the return of concerts is a big step to normalcy even as restrictions have been eased for certain businesses. the live music industry has been forced to stay silent that is changing, though. indoor concert venues like bottom of the hill in san francisco are going to be allowed to start reopening on april 15th and the co owner of that venue says shelis excited. >> i would hate to say anything but that i'm grateful
8:08 am
for this guidance and and seeing a light at the end of the tunnel we're not there yet. there's still like long lines to get an appointment for a vaccine and you still have to be over. 50 is so i my personal feeling is why not wait until we've reached this herd immunity before we start putting people inside. >> music venues are hoping that government assistance programs will help them reopen quicker. >> johnson and johnson is expanding its clinical trial of its vaccine to include miners now. 1617 year olds will be the first to get tested and then they'll eventually expand that to children. maybe even as young as 12. the study is testing the safety of both its one dose and it's 2 dose versions of the vaccine. we know that pfizer and moderna have already conducted tests on minors with pfizer releasing data showing that it shot is safe for children between 1215. they're waiting approval now from the fda happening
