outbreak is so critical that at 1.1 of their major hospitals, which was a 240 bed hospital was 40 minutes away from running out of oxygen for the patients. any time we have a major outbreak, it increases the variance. all it takes is one of those variants to defeat our vaccine, so it's in our interest to make sure that we're limiting the amount of barry instead, i'll emerge on if we limit outbreaks that limits variants. congressman khanna wants five. madonna to provide india with the vaccine formula so it can produce vaccines there in its many vaccine factories. now there's another c five out there doing practice runs right now, but another aircraft called a c 17 will make the trip at about 10 o'clock tonight, and there's an option for one more trip, depending on just how much of the goods come in to get there to actually make the flight. that is the situation here, and this is being repeated in many places around the world. but

5:06 pm
she's broken. he's expected to talty administration's covid-19 response and look ahead the job during the speech in the joint session of congress and on the 100 day mark, the next day is to turn the country forward into the future. past covid covid covid to a sense of normalcy. coronavirus is the reason this address fel. look much different from others in the past. don't expect handshakes or hugs and only limited number of members of congress have been invited to the spacing protocols. as for what else? he'll talk about a range of priorities that he has for the upcoming months of his presidency, including putting in place working with congress to put in place police reform, including. doing more to expand off access to affordable health care. he's also expected to lay out the details of the american families plan focused on child care paid leave and education. it comes with the roughly 1.5 trillion price tag paid for in part by tax hikes on the wealthy, a nonstarter for
5:07 pm
republicans. i predict they're going to ram through something with only democrat votes and no republican participation again to the tune of a couple trillion dollars. senator tim scott will deliver the gop rebuttal. republicans say biden's failed to keep his promise of bipartisanship. we're going to hit 100 days i have not met with the president one time nor had one conversation with him, and also challenges joe biden zag ministrations for his relationships on capitol hill. and can he get this to work? the president will also hear response from his own party. progressives intend to continue pushing him from the left. area. congressman ro khanna gives the president high marks and looks forward to following up on progressive priorities. it's a simple to talk about $15 wage, which we need expanding medicare, which we need in a health care crisis, making sure that we have free public college and options for people who want to do trade school or get a certificate, making sure that student debt is taken care of. tackling climate change.
5:08 pm
now back to those covid restrictions. only about 200 people will be in the audience is opposed to the usual 1600. some members of congress have invited guests who will attend the speech. virtually frank, we heard kevin mccarthy, the minority leader's say there that he hasn't met with the president one time since the president was elected. joe biden was in the senate for 36 years. he knows how to make a deal. but again, it seems like an uphill climb with these big ticket plans, frankly, absolutely right. he is well known for being able to work with both sides of the aisle. he touted that during the campaign and during the inauguration, but keep this in mind the party split is 50 50 in the senate, vp harris the tie breaking vote, and when it comes to the nearly $4 trillion, he's proposing spending with these two new plans, the infrastructure and families plan he not only needs to convince republicans he has to win over members of his own party, who either agree that it's too much money or that his plans don't go far enough. this is going to be. quite the climb,
5:09 pm
greatly live for us tonight, greg. thank you. more details now on president biden's american families plan. the proposal includes free community college universal preschool for all three and four year olds. increased tax credits for families with children and paid family leave. the plan faces opposition in the senate from republicans and some moderate democrats because of its tax increases and nearly $2 trillion price tag. i think there is a decent chance. some or much of it could get enacted. i think the price tag will make some members bulk, but not necessarily all of them. and the biden white house has been pretty smart in saying that it's open to alternative funding mechanisms to it's unclear wheth plan by itself or along with the president's infrastructure proposal. an attorney for the three alameda police officers on leave in the
5:10 pm
death of mario gonzales is now speaking out, and so is the alameda police chief. our crime reporter henry lee is here. now with more on henry. they're asking the public not to rush to judgment here. you're afraid this comes a day after that police body cam video was released to the public, so the police chief and the attorney are saying those videos are you only telling part of the story that three investigations are only in their early stages. these officers were there to help alice and very wilkinson is an attorney representing the three alameda police officers who restrain and confronted mario gonzalez. he died in their custody. these officers used the lowest degree of force. possible given the intensity of mr gonzales is efforts to evade their grasp, she says gonzalez was disoriented and intoxicated. thea officers had to take action to ensure his safety and that of the public. they couldn't leave him there. he could fall. they were very concerned about him falling, she says. officer james fisher, a 10 year veteran, seen here did put his knee on gonzales is back that is being used. it is
5:11 pm
a balance point, much like you would put your hand on rested on a railing as you go down the stair. there was never a point in time where any officers need was on mr gonzales his neck. nor was there a time when they were pressing down hard enough on his body to cause him not to breathe officer fisher as well as officers eric mckinley and cameron leahy. or on paid leave corado. gonzales says officers murdered his brother. the truth is that he was killed by the police department was heartbreaking to see my mother having to see her her firstborn spinal moments is troubling. it's hard to watch my condolences, of course, go to mr gonzales, his mother and family, but interim alameda police chief randy finn had this to say about the murder accusation. well, i think that's a pretty strong charge that there's not enough evidence to support that charge. right now. that's what the investigation is for. we don't even know the cause of death. right now. here's the public to wait for the results of investigations into the death.
5:12 pm
the only tells part of the story, so we needed the entire investigation. you understand? um whether or not the actions were legal, consistent with training on within policy they wanted to do is to get him into a safe spot. they didn't have any intention. the events going in the direction that they did. you know, the city of alameda has asked the sheriff's office in an outside attorney to investigate and pending any autopsy results. the d a's office will determine whether any of those officers are criminally liable in this depth reporting live. henry lee ktvu, fox two news. okay, henry. thank you, the justice department announced federal hate crime charges today in the death of a georgia man who was killed while out for a run last year. the criminal case charging the three men in connection with the death of ahmad robbery is them. most significant civil rights prosecution undertaken to date by the biden administration. justice department travis mcmichael and his father, gregory, and a third man,
5:13 pm
william roddy bryant, are all charged with one count of interference with civil rights and attempted kidnapping today for the first time we're hearing from one of the jurors in the derrick show vin murder trial who actually voted in the deliberations, he talked to the fox affiliate in minneapolis. and they asked him if the jurors felt any pressure in any way i personally know and i don't think i don't think any of the other jurors did either. just because from being in the courtroom during the trial every day and having to witness on instant replay, somebody dying every day. the stress of that alone. you don't even have time to think about pressure. that's that's enough pressure long just to make the right decision because you're deciding someone else's life. mitchell also said quote i think we came with the right verdict. i think everybody was at peace with it. everybody was on the same page from sleeping

this comes after someone is shot him in the back with an arrow while he was walking not far from his bus ourself. a reporter jesse gary joins us now he's been following developments in this case suggest he do detectives have they said what the motive could be. julie sheriff's investigators do not know why this worker in particular was targeted. the union represents him says he is recovering, and that he, as a member of the sikh community, may have been the. them of a hate crime. he's doing a little bit better by the day. um just a little bit shocked that this could happen to him or anybody. vita union president john courtney says the unnamed bus driver was walking with a co worker tuesday while on break near sierra brand a way and north capitol expressway 36 year old man who's a five year employee. was shot in the back with an arrow around 2 30 in the afternoon when did penetrate through his skin. i will say. fortunately this situation could been a lot worse and was
5:18 pm
pretty close of hitting some vital organs. from what i understand. sheriff's investigators say had the victim been facing the opposite direction with wound could have been fatal. union reps say this isn't the first time one of their members has been assaulted near the alameda rock transit center 18 months ago, they say, ah female driver was shot in the head with a pellet gun. she just tough is a common it took her a little while, but she's back. back to work. transit authority officials say the sheriff's department has law enforcement jurisdiction over their transit hubs. additionally the authority contracts with allied universal security to provide additional officers, but they serve as a visible deterrent to crime and most are unarmed. union officials say the victim and his co worker are both members of the sikh community and fear this attack could be a hate crime, or we face all source of. the salt's verbally or operators here just about everything. so that certainly puts this in the narrative of
5:19 pm

5:43 pm
franchise now to get to your question, i personally think that the 49ers are going to pick mcenany, the national championship team, and the reasons for that is, i think that shanahan, the coach and offensive, so called genius really wants a guy who doesn't fool around. and by that, i mean, he's a straight pocket passer. he doesn't quickly flinch and get out of there. he's going to stick in there. he's gonna follow the game plan. he's not physically gift. but from all reports, he's a very quick study. he played it a pro style offensive set up at alabama, and he would be more of a plug and play god like he could be ready to go next fall, which doesn't bode well for the future of jimmy garoppolo in the organization so he could be traded or moved at any time. i personally if i were the general manager would be going

for trey lance out of north dakota. now, the negatives about him. he only played one game last year because of covid related situations in his league, but this guy is a physical specimen, he is reportedly kind of raw. in other words, yes, honed his skills, but i mean this guy six ft. 4 £230. he's fast. he's very conscientious from all reports, he is that absolute sponge for information. he wants to be great. and i believe that his upside is just huge and i could see him being the next step. pat mahomes of the kansas city chiefs, that is who i would pick without a doubt, but they think they're gonna go with mac jones. that is what i believe they're going to do. okay so how much is on the line here for coach mike shanahan and general manager john lynch. they're pretty much better. the farm on this draft pick by giving away two future
5:45 pm
first round picks, and we all know that in the nfl draft for every peyton manning there is unfortunately, a ryan leaf. absolutely well. here's the good news for coach shanahan and john lynch. you never know about these draft picks for at least i'm gonna save for a quarterback. minimum 2 to 3 years, so they're not gonna be judged on this selection tomorrow for good 2 to 3 seasons. the bad news is when they do they do this, and it doesn't turn out there pretty much done. i mean, you can that forfeit to future draft choices, plus a third round pick to first and expect that you're gonna come out. all right. i mean, they rolled the dice and i believe from the get go when they made this trade they were certain of exactly who they want. and they think that the future is there. so the good
5:46 pm
news they're not going to lose their jobs tomorrow. could you never know about quarterbacks for a few years? bad news is, if it doesn't turn out two or three years, i can't see them sustaining. they're they're a rain here with the 49ers. well, we all find out tomorrow also have to give a shout out to nausea. harris the running back from antioch high school, who then went to alabama, and he's expected to be the first running back drafted in the first round, great job by nausea. harris, mark, thank you so much for talking with us. we'll see a guy here. he's hey may go to the pittsburgh steel. that's what i'm here. so yeah, all right, we'll see. okay man, take care. coming out. music festival tickets go on sale tomorrow. that's something we haven't been able to say for a long time here in california. why local health officials are confident they can safely pull up outside lands this fall. also ahead for the first time in more than a year in the east bay favorite, is set to reopen details about when you can book your next trip to the lindsay wildlife center. ah warm spring

5:50 pm

5:51 pm
discussion about large events like outside lands. the city's acting health officer, says outside lands organizer's have been working closely with health experts in planning and are an example of how some of the city's signature events like outside lands and even fleet week can proceed. it is a very fantastic position right now that we can't even talk about outside lands. it needed a such a fixture of san francisco every fall, so it is super exciting to me as acting health officer but also as a person that, you know, loves these events. some major event organizers are still planning for their return this year after being canceled last year. organizers of the gilroy garlic festival announced plans for drive thru events in july and bottle rock and napa county has announced plans to go ahead over the labor day weekend. but other major festivals, including coachella and stage coach initially tried to reschedule their shows, but finally decided to push back their festivals to 2022. health experts say it will take some
5:52 pm
time before organizing major events gets back to normal. we did reach out to outside lands organizer's hoping to learn more about what kinds of safety precautions they're going to have in place, and just how many people they're hoping will attend this year, but we did not hear back from them. christien kafton ktvu, fox two news. the gilroy garlic festival is back on this year, two years after a mass shooting left four people dead, organizers say the reimagined festival will look different, among other events. it will include a drive thru gourmet galley, and it won't be held at christmas tree park. instead it will be held at the gilroy presbyterian church. the festival is scheduled for the weekend of july, 23rd and august 1st. well a big warm up today. here in the bay area, lots of sunshine lots of eighties. in fact, the warm spots approaching the lower nineties. so today, probably one of the warmest days of the week. we'll look cool things off a little bit for tomorrow, but still it's not a sharp drop off the numbers. looks like
5:53 pm
this mild pattern is here to stay. take a look at the highs from this afternoon. san francisco 71 oakland 80 look at those nineties out toward fairfield and antioch, so pretty warm, well inland. it is still warm right now, as you can see, still, some eighties for concord and fairfield, oakland. i 73 san francisco has cooled out to 65 santa rosa. checking in 80 degrees satellite the clear skies up above, but you can't see some clouds up to our north and west and some of the high cloud cover will seep into a northern california and the bay area for tomorrow's will be watching out for that change as we head into your thursday, but it is a nice. wednesday evening out there was still mostly clear skies. we'll start out tomorrow morning with partly cloudy conditions and some patchy coastal fog. so the biggest change tomorrow we begin to cool things off coast side and right around the bay, but it is still a warm day. the overall weather pattern is still not moving around too much is big area. five pressure is still kind of overhead, keeping his dried also relatively warm, but just a change in the wind direction. you probably feel that toe
5:54 pm
onshore wind if you're near the coast right now, we will look cool off those numbers. coast side. but still some warm temperatures well inland back up into at least the mid eighties for tomorrow afternoon, of course, the dry weather pattern having a huge impact on our water supplied a lot going on this graphic here. so this was shasta lake earlier this afternoon, when i put in showing you this, that's the largest california reservoir but showing you all of the at least that the largest 47 reservoirs you can see kind of up and down the state if we were to sum him up as a whole, you can see the statistics and as you know, with this dry winter, not very impressed. so capacity could see those big numbers. they're average and then last year look at this year. this number is not high at all. in fact, really 49% of capacity if you take all these reservoirs as a whole, so that's a reflection of this really dry winter and it looks like this dry weather pattern is here to stay. by the way. i want to think agenda, all from golden gate weather services for doing the hard research show with those numbers crunching all those statistics. so here's the forecast model
5:55 pm
for tonight, so we do have mostly clear skies tomorrow. we bring in some malone's low clouds and higher clubs throughout the day, so we could kind of have that filtered sunshine effect for tomorrow for you thursday and that'll be the case as we head into your friday, but we still have some eighties for the warm spots tomorrow. oakland 70 san francisco 66 degrees so not as warm near the coast not as warm right around the bay as well, but it's still a warm day. scattered clouds for your friday the weekend starts off breezy and it looks like this quiet weather pattern will hold steady as we head into next week. all right, mark. thank you, the lindsay wildlife experience in walnut creek announced today will reopen its exhibit hall on tuesday, completing a return to its pre pandemic operations. the museum will be unveiling a new habitat for its bald eagle for a special member day next tuesday. then we'll reopen to the general public on wednesday. attendance will be limited to 50% of capacity or 75 guests at a time. and mass will be
