10:01 pm
it may also be more transmissible in children as young people are driving the latest uptick in cases. >> to happen indicating cases are increasing national and we're seeing that sucker predominantly and younger many outbreaks in young people are related to youth sports and extracurricular activities. >> cases continue to rise and more variance begin to emerge. there are concerns that the trend may hit the bay area today kron four's taylor spoke with an infectious disease expert about infection rates in the trends all across our region. she joins us now live with more on this. we be concerned. >> well, you know, vicki, we are seeing an upward trend in some counties across the bay area. but it's really important to look at this data county by county because we're also seen cases drop in other areas that just disease. experts say this just reinforces the fact that we're not out of the woods quite yet.
10:02 pm
>> yeah. as we saw in michigan, april could be a month of outbreaks or it could be or it could not be like we're much of the rest of the country. so we'll just have to see what happens. like the rest of the country. the future of covid-19 infection rates is uncertain. espite a growing number of people getting vaccinated cases are still trending upward bay area counties. overall, though ucsf infectious disease expert doctor george rutherford says bay area has a flat trend for infection rates. alameda for instance, in the last week has gone up by more than 500 cases. >> moran has gone down by 46, you know, so it's kind of a wash. so i think we need to pay attention to this. it's not we're not out of the woods yet. and there's ongoing transmission. we'll have to see easter celebrations might have brought. we broke down case rates and percentage changes in each bay area county over the last 7 days.
10:03 pm
>> recorded by the cdc. according to their data, you'll notice cases are up in alameda, contra costa solano san mateo and napa counties. >> but down in san francisco, santa clara sonoma and marin counties. meanwhile, this is the 4th week of rising cases nationwide on monday. cdc director doctor rochelle walensky said many of the outbreaks are in young people related to youth sports and extracurricular activities. >> we know that these increases are due in part to more highly transmissible variance, which we are very closely monitoring. and as more schools are reopening it's even more important to make sure they do so safely with strict adherence to guidance and for all of us to roll up our sleeves for a vaccine as soon as we can. >> well also have to closely monitor infection rates as more schools and businesses reopen this month. doctor weatherford says that california is in a better position when it comes to the variance currently present in
10:04 pm
our state. you know, he says that the west coast variance, which we've seen here in california seem to be more dominant in our state. and that's better because obviously as we already talked about that uk virgin uk variant rather is more transmissible for now live in san francisco. taylor sackey kron 4 news. all right, taylor, thank you for that report. >> another one of those variance mentioned by doctor rutherford has now popped up in santa clara county. we know of at least one case with origins that started in india. now a stanford lab is working to confirm another 7 suspected cases. doctors say they have a lot to learn about this latest variant. which may be to blame for recent surge of cases in india. the variant being called a double mutant because it has 2 mutations which could possibly make it that much more infections. >> so this is a variant that has mutations similar to the california variant as well as south africa and brazil variance. it looks like it may
10:05 pm
be more transmissible and potentially. able to be neutralized by and potentially. vaccines may be less effective at preventing infection with this particular area. >> so in parts of india where the double mutant variant is prevalent new cases are up as much as 50%. >> the nation's top infectious disease expert is issuing a different warning. doctor anthony fauci says we shouldn't expect any warmer temperatures to help keep the virus from spreading. >> you might remember a year ago for all of you a little bit more than a year ago when we were looking for the summit to rescue us from surges. it was in fact the opposite. we saw some substantial surges in i don't think we should even think about relying on the weather to bail us out of anything we're in right now. >> she also says the federal government has no plans to make vaccine passports mandatory for travelers, but

10:07 pm
local leaders say they're still trying to work out the logistics on who will be responsible for that site. >> who's going lead operations ever to defects is coming from. you know, there's multiple sources of supply at 3rd, going to pay for this. this site has been valuable, but we still don't have enough. there's still been a shortage. there's still been on people who have been searching and searching for appointments. so we're really when when we just do this astronomical opening on april 15th that without a site like this, we will not be able to meet people's expectations. >> county leaders say in recent weeks they have seen less vaccine hesitancy and more folks wanting to sign up to get their vaccines by the way, this coming sunday we will have an exclusive statewide town hall with the california senator alex padilla. he'll be talking about covid relief immigration, gun control and a whole lot more. if you would like to participate now is the good time for you to submit your questions on twitter using the hashtag inside ca

believe that they can sell this plan to the american public with a focus on community investment and job growth and some of the progressive wing of the party are pushing for a bill even larger than 2 trillion dollars. >> he know some members think it's to some think it's too too small. a frankly, there, then folks have come out on both sides of which we fully expected. but unfortunately it looks as though speaker pelosi and leader schumer what the administration to use the reconciliation process which means then it will just be a democrat only bill and that's unfortunate. >> under the reconciliation process which congress used to pass president biden's covid relief plan, democrats would need any republican support to pass his infrastructure package. this week. california leaders are set to announce rule changes that will make it easier for counties to move into. >> less restrictive orange and yellow tears. as of today. most of the state remains in the red tier allowing for businesses to open with

10:11 pm
mister rogers. look, yeah. something meteorologist lawrence karnow here tonight. the look to get you ready out the door for ready for tuesday. yeah. whatever it takes, right says bundle up. i mean, as you approach the coastline. so pretty chilly temperatures highs long the we're hovering in the upper 40's and low 50's. i mean, that is chilly out toward the beaches in the 3rd sea breeze. it feels extra cold outside. now the low clouds and fog again making their way back on shore tonight beginning to fill inside the bay already and we'll see more of that. >> as we head throughout the night tonight. and again, i think some drizzle likely along the coastline in some spots out there right now overlooking san francisco. you see the clouds up above no stars to be had over sfo the same. they're all the clouds working their way through the san bruno gap. there and kind of filling in tonight. not a real strong sea breeze, but enough of a breeze really of the clouds further on shore. all right. today we saw these temperatures drop in much of the bay area. good 4 to 5 degrees compared to 24 hours ago. so these numbers coming
10:12 pm
down member last week we're talking about all those record high temperatures 70's and 80's. they are long gone. today. well below the average 54 degrees in san francisco only 56 9 degrees below the average in oakland. some say checking in 63 degrees. 62 in little more 64 in concord and 63 degrees in santa rosa. all these numbers running well below the average. well, that kind thing right now. we've got one area of low pressure that is swirling around near salt lake city, the middle of pacific. we've got what's called a cutoff low. means kind of bouncing between pressure systems kind of swirling around here waiting to get caught up somehow by the jet to make its way toward the coastline. and in between. we've got the bay area that's we're seeing low clouds and the fog. and i think we're going to be that in between spot throughout the better part of this week. so, yeah, i think we'll see a lot of cloud cover. a low clouds and fog variety all week long and some mid to high level clouds from occasionally the spinoff from that low off the coast. so the seabreeze yes, kind of blowing out there right now in spots
10:13 pm
to 9 miles an hour at sfo 12 in oakland 21 miles an hour. that's maybe more important in the fairfield. see see all that moisture to work its way right through the delta 48 degrees right now in half moon bay 48 also if this if it got 49 at san francisco's these temperatures really cooling down outside right now and certainly tomorrow that we're going to wake up with some low clouds and some fog probably some patchy drizzle early on and then as we head through the weekend, a cooler midweek. and i think one world nicely for the weekend looks like high pressure going to sneak in here. i think by tomorrow afternoon going to settle in just enough to maybe warm the temperatures up in the valley. still on the coastline. you're dealing with low clouds and the fog in the sea breeze to keep it cool. so right out toward the beaches going to stay fairly cool. but i think as we head toward many spots inland. you're talking about some sunshine and temperatures may be at the low 70's the warmer spots but don't get used to it. we've got more that cool summer like fog coming our way. alright lawrence, thank you. that devastating story in the north bay when it. >> suv drove through a parking lot without breaking in
