10:30 pm
symptoms from the omicron variant, the thing can still be dangerous. chip yost has the story. this week. more evidence from a southern california study showed the omicron variant is not as bad as the delta variant that preceded hospitalizations are much less likely. icu visits are much less likely in death. >> is much less likely such findings might have some people saying if almost all of us are likely to get exposed to omicron at some point, why not just expose yourself on purpose and get it over with. but medical professionals say that's not a good idea. and here's why. >> as more people that get infected, you're still a percentage that will get sick severely, especially if they're not vaccinated. and that percentage could be could be significant out of 10,000 people. if you know, 300 of those have severe illness here

10:32 pm
that is why we're seeing such a strain in the hospital. >> those chip yost reporting and well, military medical teams have been dispatched to help struggling hospitals deal with the pandemic. according to the american health care association, nursing homes need to be prioritized as well. >> the same situation of the hospitals are in nursing homes or ran and both need help. your people are prioritized. we can get good clinical outcomes and we can save lives. >> there are also some concerns that the supreme court's decision to uphold the vaccine mandate for healthcare workers could make the staffing shortages worse. fema. he's taking requests from overburden states and health care systems. now across the country. a new study finds the omicron variant is inherently milder for children who are under the age of 5 compared to the delta variant. researchers say the omicron variant resulted in significantly less severe outcomes. then did delta. that includes a 70% reduction in
10:33 pm
hospitalizations and a 30% reduction in visits to the er. only about one percent of young kids infected with omicron were hospitalized compared to about 3% children with delta. but the researchers say further studies are needed to monitor the long-term consequences of infection. adding parents should still keep their guard up. >> new york city mayor eric adams is considering whether to allow children to attend school remotely. he says schools are safe but that schools are safe but that attendance shows many childre are simply not coming to school right now. so the mayor says he is looking into the possibility of overall temporarily offering remote learning. and much of the east coast could be hit with a big snowstorm this weekend. 60 million people are under a winter weather alert. you're looking at video from the chicago area. had a foot of new snow in some places. the system has since moved south.

10:36 pm
settle in tonight. so that's a lot these temperatures drop off a little faster overnight tonight, but we still have high clouds up above and that ridge of high pressure that's going to slide a little further to the east. this low is going to start to get a little bit closer thing that will bring with it. some mild conditions for tomorrow. a lot of cloud cover going to be rolling in across our skies. so long range forecast to looks like things are going to continue in this track. we've got that cut off low spinning off our coastline, maybe bring some showers and southern california. the main rain track staying well to the north high pressure continuing to build in behind that looks like that ridge of high pressure just wants magnify again and strengthen. so temperatures tomorrow plan a lot of 60's outside around much of the bay area with a lot of clouds. scooting on by and keeping it dry through the weekend and well into next week. in fact, we're probably going to be dry for at least the next 2 weeks. thanks, lawrence. actor and comedian tiffany haddish has been arrested in georgia charged with dui after receiving a call about a driver asleep at
