5:33 pm
million people are now fully. vaccinated joining us how to talk more about all of this is dr john schwartzberg. he's an infectious disease and vaccine expert at uc berkeley. professor thanks for joining us. let's start with these variants, including the indian variant that was just discovered here in the bay area. how concerned should people be and if they've already gotten their shot? well that protect them against these new variants? well these new variants, of course, or disconcerting and people should be concerned about them, but not overly concerned. um, we know that this is the behavior of the virus. it's going to try and survive in the only way conserve i've is either to find not immune people at his people who haven't been vaccinated previously recovered from the disease or to change and that's what it's going to do so with this particular one from india, it shares a lot of the properties that we see from the strains out of brazil and the
5:34 pm
ones out of south africa and these don't respond as well to our vaccines. they do respond, but not as well. we don't have much data yet on how well this particular strain the one from india will respond to our to those people who have immunity from vaccination. we still have to figure that out. professors who we just reported fema is ending their mass vaccination site of the oakland coliseum. they say that their work is done, but some people are saying they wish they'd keep on going. it almost seems like they hit a home run and then decided to stop at third base. what's your thought about that? well, it doesn't feel like that, you know, from a medical standpoint of public health standpoint, we need to continue the oakland coliseum giving out vaccines. it's working beautifully s. oh, that's that's an easy question. chin from a republic health person or a physician. it's a bureaucratic issue that really should be worked out because god knows we just need to get
5:35 pm
the vaccine people's arms right now. exactly the excuse me, the director of infectious disease at the university of minnesota said today. quote we are really in a category five hurricane status in the next two weeks will see the highest number of cases reported globally. since the beginning of the pandemic, however, on the flip side, dr scott got leave, the former fda commissioner says he doesn't think we're going to see 1/4 wave. where do you stand on that? yeah, we've got we've got excellent people saying one thing and excellent people on the other end, saying things that are diametrically opposed, you know the way do knows. i mean, there is a reality here, and the reality is that there are many places in the world western europe. india, brazil, just a name, three that are exploding. um we know that ontario canada just had to go into lockdown. so we know that the rest of the world's having problem. we also know that this virus comes here when it's
5:36 pm
elsewhere, so it's anticipated that we will have it and we already are. look at the state of michigan right now up over 120% in terms of the number of cases so if the question is, are we having a surge now in the united states? the answer is, yes in parts of the united states, but when you look at it through the eyes of the california things look awfully rosie right now. so where do i stand? i stand right in the middle of their. i'm very concerned about where we'll be in the next couple weeks. yes. but i'm very pleased where we are with california right now. we need to go very slowly with opening up and we need to vaccinate more and more people. that kind of leads into my next question. everyone is so tired of this pandemic, but i'm assuming that you would tell people not to let up when it comes to masks and social distancing that now is not the time. oh, boy, you are absolutely right. in your assumption. i think that april
5:37 pm
is really a pivotal month for us if we can get through april without having this virus explode again, with the major surge and in the states that aren't experiencing it now, i think we're in for a really good summer. but contrary rise if we let this virus just get out of hand in this month of april, we're gonna have a tough summer. so yeah, i think we should be very slow. about opening up. i think we should be very cautious and taking baby steps in terms of what we're doing over there throughout the month of april, professor, we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight. thank you so much. thank you. napa county is expected to join five other bay area counties in advancing to the orange tear this week. that means the county's world famous wineries can reopen indoor tasting rooms. it would also reduce restrictions on other businesses such as restaurants. retail shops and movie theaters, a recent rise in the number of covid cases kept napa county in

5:41 pm
a parade to show off their new championship trophy. they beat arizona last night by one point in a game that was literally up in the air until the last few seconds. all of this, of course, the culmination of a very long season that was spent mostly on the road because of restrictions from the coronavirus. ktvu is joe fonzi is here. now, with more on the celebration. i still can't stop thinking about that game last night. it looks incredible. yeah, it was quite a game. franken in fact, stanford won its second straight heart stopping game in that win over arizona. it was the cardinals third all time ncaa basketball championship. icu win a national championship. and of course you have a parade. when you return to campus. we've been saying for a while now that these are not the usual times, the stanford campus is nowhere as busy as it would be during non covid times, and the players were masked. but you
5:42 pm
couldn't ask for a better day to celebrate an accomplishment that required negotiating a lot more obstacles than just identifying your opponent's basketball strength. and weaknesses. and performing accordingly. today's parade was the final leg of a season long journey that featured a good dose of history along the way. the cardinal opened the season with a home blow out of cal poly on november 25th with no knowledge at the time that there would not be another game and maples pavilion until february because of santa clara counties, covid shut down three stanford home games were canceled. and in early december that cardinal set up shop in las vegas, beating unlv as a visitor and washington as ah, home team. then it was back to california. but. not the bay area on december 15th, the cardinal rolled over university of pacific and stockton and tara vanderveer became the winningest coach and women's college basketball history, the
5:43 pm
good humor and unity of her team demonstrated by the t dog jacket. she was presented at stand for, then traveled to southern california and arizona while changing home headquarters to santa cruz home games were played in the arena, usually occupied by the santa cruz. warriors it was in santa cruz that stanford suffered the second of back to back losses. the teams on lee two losses of the season. finally in early february, the all clear was given and the team returned to campus. but of course it was back on the road for the pac 12 tournament in the already familiar city of las vegas, and then onto the san antonio bubble for what turned out to be six games that led to the celebration of a national championship. throughout that time, the players juggled practice, sometimes in an unheated high school gym. covid protocols and classes via zoom. the season may be the greatest and most satisfying accomplishment, and tara
5:44 pm
vanderveer is 43 year collegiate coaching career. i'm so proud of this team, not for just their basketball, but for being able to get through this covid and be so mature and we stayed in it and we found ways to, um. really enjoy each other and be be excited to play. and we're really happy to win this championship. so what a journey. it was 29 years between national championships number two and three, and coaches are always reluctant to compare teams. there have been some really good teams between those national championships, but you can't blame tara vanderveer for thinking this might just be her favorite team when she thinks back about all the obstacles, this team had to overcome and how they all came together, joe, i'm wondering how many of the starting players on her team will be graduated, and how different will the team. look next season. well, frank, there are two key seniors. kiana
