7:03 am
issue. dr james back to you. thanks a lot, camila. we'll check back with you later. >> okay. 7 '02. let's also get you updated on weather traffic because you have to head out the door right now to look too bad outside clear is in the last couple days. john, yet. a little clear that our monday, tuesday or wednesday, we're and we're actually going to be a little warmer this afternoon. so all in all, your thursday does look to be a step up weather wise as far as comfort levels goes anyways. you look outside right now shows a bit of cloud cover, but also some brightness making its way through half moon bay is one of those spots where definitely can make out some clouds. but they're not causing us any issues. we are a little colder this morning than we were yesterday before that afternoon warm up right now. most of us are in the 40's and 50's while the north bay actually looking at temperatures as cool as the 30's with petaluma and saint helene at 36 degrees right now santa rosa at a cool 33 talking all about our warm-up today and even warmer weather come the weekend. still to come, arena. tom, thank you
7:04 am
for that. we have that early morning hot spot in san rafale. that's clear. >> now we have an accident here in the city have been tracking northbound to 80 that southbound one. oh, one, we have some delays as saw along to 80. there were no delays along one. oh, one looks like conditions are starting to get better there heading into the city. we have a high wind advisory along the bay bridge for you to about 10 minutes. conditions are starting to look much better up to about 15 earlier. the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula under 14 for your drive time. we also have that accident very close, right. like i told you around sandra phil area. there are no delays because of that accident on the richmond, sandra fell bridge 11 minutes. we'll take you to that. also checking a one on one hand in the park. good, solid 29 minutes also looks great as well. we'll have more coming up next. the darya and james, back to you. thanks reyna. >> so another big story that we're following today. involves the east bay alameda county specifically in the fact that portions of that county are now expanding eligibility for the covid-19
7:05 am
vaccine to anyone 16 or older ahead of schedule. this is for certain zip codes. kron four's will tran live in alameda county. it's kind of good there, too many zip codes free to rattle off. that's a good thing. that means a lot of people are eligible. >> that's a great sign to quote mister rogers, james and darya. it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, especially for about 10 zip codes and that's a good sign. that means that the county, the state, they're getting their hands on more vaccines. they're ahead of schedule. remember, the state was talking about april 15 for 16 years and older. well, in alameda county, they're starting off a little but a week in advance. so they want to give specific neighborhoods a head start because these are neighborhoods that are disenfranchised that are harder hit with covid-19 then say some of the other neighborhoods out there. but don't worry, it will open up in about a week or so for everybody, 16 years and older. take a look at your screen. i want to show you too many zip codes and that is a good
7:06 am
thing. so i want to just knock off maybe 3 of 4 zip codes and don't worry about we'll post it on kron 4 dot com. so you can see the entire list. but let's go through several of them. there's 9, 4, 6. oh, one, 9, 4, 6. '06, the bottom and left side of your screen. 9, 4, 6, to one. there's 9, 4, 5, 4, 4, there's 9, 4, 5, 7, 7, and i do know that specifically to be sand. the andrew that keep in mind, it is very pinpoint. >> meeting. if you drive to several blocks away from your neighborhood. all of a sudden a zip code changes. so you have to prove provide proof. you live in certain zip codes. you have to make appointment before you come they're always make an appointment and then get your shot. and just like in contra, costa county. you can do it 16 years and older. if you have underlying conditions already. so don't worry about that. that's not even pertaining to zip codes. if you have underlying problems do that. if you
7:07 am
don't. well, it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood for about 10 to 12 zip codes. and again, everybody in about a week or so. 16 years and older will be able to get vaccinated provided. remember james and mary, we've been all over this story provided they have the supply back to you. that's always the stick. the sticking point. thanks a lot. well, check in with later. >> yeah. and that's the worry is supply. could actually be going down here in the near future. the number of doses of california is expected to receive in the coming weeks is apparently trending downward. here's an example. so we have state health officials giving us these numbers they've received so far, 2.4 million doses. that's this week. but that number is expected to drop to just 2 million next week and then dropped to under 2 million in the week after that. that's not the trend we want to see. but we're told that the fewer doses our result of johnson and johnson's vaccine dwindling in supply. we'll see if they can't ramp up production and will turn this around. all right.
7:08 am
>> the cdc says that right now in the u.s. it's the uk variant that is the prevalent varian. and as you know, that's a super spreader, although they think that the vaccinations picking up is going to help. it's 70% more infectious and they say 64% more deadly than the previous strains of coronavirus. if you take a look at the latest numbers. >> 5 states account for nearly half of all of our new infections nationwide. they are new york, florida, pennsylvania, new jersey and michigan. they together report almost 200,000 cases in the seven-day period, which is 44% of all the new cases in our country and the big california the past few days we've had just had 2000, 200 new cases here. >> well, infectious disease experts are stressing caution in the weeks ahead, especially for those that are unvaccinated and that comes as the state is planning to fully reopen by mid-june. kron four's dan kerman explains. well, half of san franciscans over age 16 have been vaccinated for covid-19.
7:09 am
>> that's not the case everywhere in the bay area and certainly not the state or the nation. that's why infectious disease experts want those planning to return to so-called normal to take baby steps. i would not. >> push the right just for another be cautious. see how we're going. >> u c berkeley infectious disease specialist doctor john swartzberg says is more transmissible, variance gain steam. the race is really on to protect those who remain unvaccinated. the only way we can really win this race. and that is really good. >> control. this pandemic is to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. every person is not vaccinated is a potential virus nafta swartzberg says the key question is are enough. people immune from the virus to vaccination. >> or natural instruction to stop a 4th search. he says we don't know yet, but a 4th search is going to happen. it will be this month if this time in early may.
7:10 am
>> and we're talking at that point and we haven't seen a surge. i think the answer is that we're probably not going to see one. >> swartzberg says until that time everyone should take precautions, especially those who have not gotten the vaccine. when you go out, you got that store. >> not getting together settings. >> making sure that when you are near people, you maintain social distance. swartzberg says those who have been vaccinated have a little bit more leeway. but should remain cautious over the next month. in san francisco. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> on the peninsula. daly city police are investigating what led to one of their officers shooting and killing a man. it happened yesterday afternoon on ny antic avenue near uniper, acera boulevard and west lake avenue. we're told the officer approached people in a car when shots were fired. one man was shot and killed. the officer was also hurt but is expected to be
