10:00 pm
from the bay area's local news station. you're watching kron. 4 news. now at 10 covid cases are surging and the number of available icu beds is shrinking. the warning from experts as we head into what could be. >> a long and difficult january. thanks for joining us for kron 4 news at 10. i'm ken wayne and i'm catherine heenan in for pam moore. >> tonight, napa county officials say that there are no icu beds currently available in the county. the rapid rise in covid cases
10:01 pm
straining the healthcare system. they're kron four's. dan thorn has more on the surge and what it might mean for other bay area hospitals. >> an increase in patients and a lack of staffing because of covid-19 infections has brought icu bed capacity in napa county to 0. we've known this is coming. the number of beds are getting taken up with patients with covid because the number cases of covid are just skyrocketing infectious disease specialist doctor john swartzberg acknowledges napa county's hospital system is smaller than most in the bay area. but the lack of beds and the omicron variant's threat to health care workers could be a red flag for the rest of the region. even if you've got plenty of icu beds open. even if you've got plenty of ventilators, if you don't have health care workers to take care of the patients in those beds. you know, care for most infections from the omicron variant have been reported as being less severe. but doctor swartzberg says that does not mean patients will stop coming into hospitals. studies have
10:02 pm
shown the variant is also highly transmissible as the cases continue to climb health experts continue to preach prevention has the most important step to take there's no perfect way to do this. only perfect way to make sure you're not going affect somebody has to is to become her just the road to the human beings. but we will never function society that way we need a functional society reporting in napa county, dan thorn kron 4 news that news comes as health care workers are getting burned out on the job leading to a shortage. it's being called a national crisis. >> leaders across america's hospitals are calling attention to the problem in an effort to try to take care of those who care for the sick even before the pandemic. doctors and nurses were said to have face twice the risk of burnout compared to the rest of us. and now that risk is going up. health officials predict the u.s. will need one 0.2 million more nurses by the end of this year. new cdc guidelines could require
10:03 pm
changes again in the requirements for people heading back to work and school. >> the expectation from the secretary of education is that students will still be able to return to in-person learning even as thousands of schools across the country are choosing distance learning at same time. others plan to use tests to return policies. this comes as there is now more confusion over quarantine recommendations last week. the cdc lowered isolation time for asymptomatic infections from 10 days to just 5 and said those who contract covid do not have to test again after isolating. now there are new reports said the agency may revise its guidelines yet again. >> we opted not to have the rapid tests for isolation we actually don't know how a rapid test performed and how well they predict whether your transmissible during the end of disease. i myself feel that that's a reasonable thing to do. >> i believe that the cdc soon
10:04 pm
we'll be coming out with more clarification of that since it obviously has generated a number of questions about at that five-day period should you or should you not be testing. people. meantime, the biden administration says the definition of fully vaccinated may soon change to include booster shots. >> the fda is authorizing a 3rd dose of the pfizer vaccine for children between 1215. that decision was made after researchers in israel found no new cases of heart inflammation. that's a condition us experts were monitoring as a rare side effect. the agency is also shortening the wait time for boosters to 5 months after the primary vaccine rather than 6. >> with pediatric hospitalizations op it makes sense to try and protect as many people as possible if not people get infected at the same time. a lot of we're seeing in unity what you're going to see is that we'll get
10:05 pm
reprieve because it's like having a giant force field. >> the fda also authorized a 3rd shot for children between 5.11 who have weak immune systems. the cdc could make a final decision on all of that later this week. >> covid testing remains hard to find throughout the bay area. kron four's taylor sackey reports that in san francisco testing appointments are quickly filling up and city leaders are blaming a lack of supply. >> available covid testing appointments are few and far between in san francisco as families scramble to get tested after the holidays. well, it's not required. all students are also encouraged to get tested before returning to school. however, judging by comments online and e-mails. we've received some still were unable to find available testing options in time when trying to schedule an appointment online through the city's website. you'll even be greeted by this message saying the city is experiencing high demand city supervisor asha says the issue isn't the number of testing sites open.
10:06 pm
but instead a shortage in the supply chain. we have a lot of really good accessibility. >> the problem is the the infrastructure, the actual tests themselves. it's a supply chain thing that has caused some delays. suffice says the shortage in testing kits has for several city testing sites to stop taking walk ins over the last few days in some places where there's walk-ups and appointments available or no appointments available are necessary and they basically reached a passing fad to turn people away. i think there's been a major surge in the amount of people that need testing and so it's put a strain on the system overall. as for those who have been able to get tested through a walk-in appointment. many also had to test their patients, you know, had a number of people call in the said they had to wait in line for about an hour over in the bayview fred, a testing site there. that's where i went last week i went to the baby opera house after going to a couple locations that either have
10:07 pm
reached capacity. and i think that's that's essentially where we're suffice as the city is waiting to receive test kits from the state to distribute a public school students staff and families but expects to have them at some point later this week. >> in the meantime, as we wait for more tests become available going back to the basics wearing a mask socially distancing getting vaccinated and boosted will be important to prevent a continued surge and taylor reporting kron 4 news. >> time now for the 4 zone forecast as we step outside to be a view of a looks the wind pis blowing the rain across th golden gate bridge tonight. yeah. conference chief meteorologist lawrence karnow is here lunch and felt like we're getting plenty of rain, a lot of rain. yes, some places really got soak up the place just a few 100 so far. but it still continues to come down and out of sfo. they've had plenty along the coastal sections. that's where you've seen a lot of that rain and they had all kinds of delays at sfo today. of hour or so, no delays being reported, though, now sfo oakland or san
