to see this happen in our nation's capital yet again, greg, thank you, old man is behind bars after making a bomb threat at a hotel in fremont. police say the 24 your old suspect left the back back the height place on west warren avenue around nine this morning, he said it was an explosive and took off. police found them not far from the hotel and rest of them. dozens of hotel guests were evacuated. and by the way, this is the same hotel where fremont police shot and killed an armed man just yesterday, ktvu demagogues has been covering it all and has ah live update from police and the alameda county sheriff's office now and because the question is, are these two incidents connected? andre. fremont police say they do not believe there is a connection between last night's shooting of a well known suspect and today's false bomb threat, just one day before a bomb scare forced dozens of guests to evacuate the hyatt place hotel and fremont was the site of a deadly police shooting the second one in the
5:04 pm
span of eight days since the beginning of 2021, we've unfortunately experienced a sharp increase in gun violence here in the city of three month every. spots. several units within our department recently established the gun violence reduction team. that team came to the hotel looking for a suspect who had several outstanding felony warrants who they believed to be armed after police identified him and released a police canine police say the man drew his gun and two detectives fired at him. the suspect was pronounced deceased at the scene by paramedics at 6 35 p.m. the shooting comes about a week after a fremont police on officer fatally shot a person after a chase that ended on highway 84 in newark. fpd said. the frequency of these fatal police shootings has to do with more suspects intending to attack police officers. very concerned that we have individuals out there in our society that one of take on and kill our police officers.
5:05 pm
that's the concern, and obviously way believe that there are a tremendous amount of illegal weapons out in our community there, causing a lot of these shootings and gun related incidents. no officers were injured last night, and the two who fired their weapons are under investigation by the alameda county district attorney's office and the fremont police department. andre so strange you have two big incidents at one property in less than 24 hours. are, emma. thank you so much for that live report, and now the latest on the coronavirus data shows there have been more than 3.5 million cases of covid-19 right here in california since the pandemic began with more than 2400 new cases reported in the lab. 24 hours more than 58,000. people have died in our state that includes 179 deaths since yesterday and the state's 14 day test positivity rate is now down to 1.8% that's down slightly from just two weeks ago. ah mobile vaccination team
5:06 pm
aims to inoculate up to 1000 seniors at a large senior living facility in san francisco's chinatown. we understand that shots were given out this morning at ping yang in an effort to boost vaccination rates for people. 65 older and reach those in communities that have been disproportionately affected by covid-19. organizers say. the idea is if people can't get to a vaccine side, the vaccine side will come to them. i have been in our clinic and the entire department of health has been trying our best to get the vaccine to everyone way we're trying to increase our capacity and just because you build it, it does not mean they all come. patients have their own reasons, either. if they want to get the vaccine. they can, the two day event at pyongyang is planned for today and next friday. april 9th, california is approaching 19 million covid-19 doses being given out in the state. the state's population is around 40% excuse
5:07 pm
me, 40 million and, according to the latest data, there are now over 333 shots a day being administered in california. officials report over 31% of californians have received it. one dose and 15.5% are fully vaccinated. really after a year of isolation and zoom services, many churches are now welcoming back their congregations in person for holy week, ktvu is and ruben joins aside this evening and they had a big turnout for good friday, and they're expecting even bigger numbers. easter sunday. yeah those we talked to say they're eager to worship in person, but that the key will be to celebrate safely. somewhere beth church in san jose, congregants gathered for good friday, something many hadn't done in months. it's a miracle and a prayer come true. it was a chance to see friends to worship together just to see some kind of expression and
5:08 pm
people not through a zoom call on be able to celebrate a moment like this, something that's really crucial to our faith. it's on a deeper level, i would say bethel has taken a hybrid. approach to holy week. their largest presence is still online. then they have driving services and finally, they're offering indoor services to socially distanced and with masks. i think that's given people a level of comfort, and there's nothing quite like being together in the building. they're expecting a big turnout for easter. so is the diocese of san jose. or the holy church of god. some parishes are offering extra masses some are offering to simultaneously on different parts of their campus. all are expecting people to register ahead of time. bishop oscar cantu says the isolation of this pandemic has left people craving togetherness affects us emotionally and texas spiritually as well. that we need not only to connect directly with god, but we need
5:09 pm
to connect with each other as a community. and so i've seen a hunger for that the diocese has been ramping up into our services is the county and people's comfort allowed. bethel just resumed indoor services last week as we come into easter sunday, i mean, we're we've already got 11 sunday under our belt, and we're ready to go and the congregation is ready to. we didn't get. have church inside last year, but this year we finally get to get together have community and celebrate easter. now each church is handling things a bit differently, so it does pay to do your research on register ahead of time, and many are also keeping those online and outdoor options as well. andre still have to be careful because you had to church art and ruben reporting for us live and thank you so much. new

says nearly four million vaccinations were given in the last 24 hours. the 70 average is up to three million doses per day. the coronavirus task force says that 100 million americans have had their first dose 200 million doses have been delivered and more than
5:31 pm
17% of the u. s adult population is fully vaccinated. and as the number of people vaccinated grows rapidly every day, we're starting to see new guidelines about what it's safe today. the cdc relaxed travel guidelines. ktvu town, baker joins us live with what the cdc is advising tom. well if you've got the travel bug, things are definitely looking up land sea and in the air. the cdc issued new guidelines saying that fully vaccinated people may not travel at very low risk to themselves so long as they traveled two weeks after their last dose. if coronavirus precautions such as masking followed, you're free to travel within the u. s without covid-19 tests prior to traveling or self quarantine afterwards. for international travel, fully vaccinated. people do not need to get a covid-19 tests before they leave the united states unless it is required by their international destination.
5:32 pm
however the cdc says you should have a negative covid test before flying back to the u. s as well as another test 3 to 5 days after returning people not fully vaccinated should get a test 123 days before leaving, and another test again. 3 to 5 days after returning. well, a self quarantine at home for seven days. i know there's a lot of people that really follow that cdc guidance very closely, and this is essentially enabling that air travel to open up a little bit more. the cdc also announced it'll soon issue new guidelines for the cruise industry, a critical step in restarting cruising and god said into san francisco's beleaguered cruise terminal. back east the triple a says they're online car rentals since the auto club began tracking rules 11 years ago. there are 100% in the west. many folks feel a sanitized, reliable car is the safest way for family travel.
5:33 pm
for now, you know, the road trip we have seen is the most popular form of travel during this time and be that because maybe people feel more comfortable like you said nationally, rail travel is rebuilding in late may, the california zephyr and the coast starlight resume their daily operations. our guns reiterates that all travelers regardless of vaccination status should continue to wear masks, some planes, busses, trains and other forms of public transportation while traveling each air carrier can and just impose its own mandates. plus uncle sam absolutely requires masks on aircraft, those who choose to ignore them well, they face removal, permanent banning and very stiff fines. tom vacar ktvu. fox. two news laundry back to you. all right. tom vacar reporting for us. stop! thank you so much for joining us now to talk more about that decision, and much more is dr monica gandhi.
5:34 pm
infectious diseases expert at u. c s f. dr gandhi. thanks so much for joining us today. obviously a lot of people glad to hear that restrictions around travel or being eased here. but is this a good move? yes i actually do think it's a good move. and why? because i think it's motivating for people to hear good news about what can happen and how life can be more normal after you vaccinated. i think it's motivating to take the vaccine and then it's motivating as our vaccine axis is going up for people to get those appointments and i, you know you could decide how you want to do your public health messaging, complete caution or giving people kind of rewards. in a way for the great things that vaccines unlock for us, which is going back to more normal ways of being absolutely. i'm curious to know if you think we might see some type of summer rush people booking flights and traveling around the country. i'm curious. also this there was some difference
5:35 pm
when it comes to traveling domestically versus traveling internationally, right? yes so there isn't what the cdc said today is that there isn't a need to test or quarantine when you return from travel. mew domestic and that actually makes sense because they've already said that you don't have to quarantine if you've been vaccinated and you have an exposure. so for example, is a health care worker. i've been vaccinated. i can come back to work if i've had an exposure if i to have no symptoms, there's no need to quarantine. but this testing what they said about testing was in the international study. they said that. you only have to test to go somewhere. if you're if that country says you have to test and then to test to come back to this country, which a little incongruous with the other guidelines. and i think they're just being super careful, and that i'm sure is that could be dropped later. when we way see what happens if that's too much of a barrier, okay? another big news today. california going to open up into our concerts and
5:36 pm
theater performances mid april, a curious to know if you think some type of process should be in place here requiring proof that you've been vaccinated or maybe proof of a negative covid test. i'm curious to know how all of this is gonna work when everyone starts getting back into one space. you're right that there's two things going on. there's this complicated time in history, where, like some of us were vaccinated, and some of us are not, and yet keeping everything closed down when the cases are so low is really unhelpful for the economy and for businesses that need people toe come back. and so i think it's prudent to say okay, we're gonna open because our cases are so low in this way, but they were very careful. people still have to mask until we all get to back an opportunity to have a vaccine. and then they said, vaccinated people can sit close together shoulder to shoulder and not the unvaccinated. so it was a little bit of a complicated guidance. but it makes sense because we're in this happened here half way. we're 31.4% of
5:37 pm
californians got their first dose, so that's amazing. but we're not there yet. in terms of everyone wants a vaccine to get it, so it's kind of a half way of opening that. um, allows safety to still be maintained. and i think it's prudent. you mentioned the 30% there roughly 30% of vaccinations. you know, this week earlier, we heard reports and warnings. hey there could be 1/4 wave. i know that you don't think that's necessarily the case here for california? correct i do not. i do not think we will have a four surge in california for actually three reasons. one is that. unfortunately actually we had a terrible third search and that led to a lot of us being exposed. so sarah prevalence is studied by the california dph that 30% of us of antibodies even more in southern california. and so there was a lot of exposure. unfortunately that gives us natural immunity. then we're putting back feeds on top of it. 31.4% of us
5:38 pm
vaccinated first does then we're opening up very slowly and prudently as we are in a very not wide open way. all three of those were not gonna happen. other search. i'm very calm. french, okay, so then what is your message to people now that they hear cdc says, yep. you can travel if you're fully vaccinated. what would your reminders be? my reminders would be that we're not all accidents, so we're still doing masking and distancing and public spaces, which is so fair, right? like it may not be that you can pass it on to someone. it's a vaccine, which i don't think you can. but it's so fair that we don't wear it on our sleeves for vaccinated and we all have to mask a distance and stay with the rules our public spaces, including flights, which is certainly not gonna be dropping mass right now, but i think that her hand i'd say if you're fully vaccinated and you have a low risk child, for example, that lives with you because children are low risk for infection. go into your grandparent's. if you'd like to think it's time i'm gonna be doing the same. yeah absolutely.
5:39 pm
okay. last question here, and this is just about what we heard this week, about five years. hey are our vaccine is effective for six months after you've been fully vaccinated. do you think we're going to start to see this turn into something like the flu shot where we have to get it every year? no, and it's just fundamentally for two reasons. it's not gonna be like the flu shot. one is that this? ah, coronavirus just not mutated. the same rate is influence that they're totally different rna viruses coronaviruses. actually, very they have a high degree of fidelity. it's called with their primaries. they don't you take that fast? it just seems that way because we hear a lot about the variance and there's a lot of transmission going on second t cells that you get from vaccines work against the variants. two pieces of good news this week after fauci message this to us on wednesday morning at the white house task force pretty thing and if you don't have if you still in vaccines work against the variance, and we're gonna need we're not gonna need your league boosters. maybe once every 10 years. i don't know how long it's gonna last, but it's not gonna be your ears,
5:40 pm
okay? all right. dr monica gandhi. appreciate your insight, as always. thanks for coming on the show. okay. thank you. a day after receiving the johnson and johnson vaccine, governor newsome visited the vaccination side in san diego. the governor says vaccine supply is said to increase substantially in the coming weeks. the state expects to receive four million doses next week. governor newsome says the delivery of these vaccines will help counties move up the color tears in the states reopening plan. 3.6 million almost 3.7 million on their weight. four million next week, which will allow cities and counties like san diego to move more quickly through these tears, ultimately getting to a green tear, which will be talking a lot more about next week. the governor also urged more people to get vaccinated so the state can reach hurt immunity. californians age 50 and up are now eligible to receive a vaccine. people 16 and up will be eligible to be vaccinated. starting april 15th. years of
