house is going to restrict travel from india here to the u. s says coronavirus cases continue to surge in that country, the white house says it's making this move on advice from the cdc. the travel ban takes effect on tuesday, may 4th it does not apply to us citizens who are returning home from india or humanitarian workers. yesterday the state department issued a travel advisory against travel to india and urged americans who are their toe leave india another. u s air force plane loaded with medical and emergency supplies is now headed for india. it left travis air force base in fairfield this afternoon. the u. s is sending india more than $100 million worth of supplies.
4:13 pm
the c 17 is loaded with oxygen cylinders, n95 masks and covid-19 test kits. the u. s government is donating it through the u. s aid for international development all of the money and supplies is coming from them to go to india today. planes carrying the first emergency u. s aid arrived in new delhi today there among some of the planes that took off from travis air force base yesterday, as well as on wednesday. india reported nearly 400,000 new covid cases just today. the surge there may be due to a double mutant variants that circulating in the country. well, here we are. it's only april and firefighters across the state are already busy putting out while fires. the one is in calvary's county in the hills. of campo saeko, which is just northeast of lodi. the fire has burned about 160 acres, and so far it's only 15% contained.
4:14 pm
cal fire says that it is still looking into the cause of the fire and a brush fire in los angeles county is now 75% contained. that fire has burned about 550 acres near homes and passaic. they're also fires burning and lake and sutter counties. let's bring in cal fire deputy chief jonathan cox and. jonathan crews out there already. they continue to make some ground which fire right now is of the biggest concern. your head of the largest one that has been burning is the one in l. a county and that one is pretty unceasingly large for this time of europe. luckily the containment is up and cruise down there making good progress on it. but it's really an indication that we start to see fires earlier this season. we did last year, and we just we know how bad last year was. so where we are concerned. yes so, jonathan, this does seem earlier than usual. so this is in fact unusual. yeah that's
4:15 pm
right. just to give you some perspective, you know, we usually respond on average to about 600 plus fires between january and this time in april. every year. we've already responded to 1300 across california this year in the same timeframe we're looking at double the number of fires thaaverage across califor. yeah. which for us is concerning and also is really the reason we're trying to get the message out. now that fire season is quickly approaching on the time to take defensive mechanism. measures around your home is now. yes so what else are you encouraging people to do? i mean, obviously get prepared, but it seems like the message really is get prepared. now that's right. yeah. you know, we're taking advantage of it ourselves as firefighters by doing prevention measures, such as clearing vegetation and. in clearing roadways. for homeowners. it's really three important pieces. it's defensible space around the home. it's ready set, go having a plan to leave when the time
4:16 pm
comes, and, thirdly, what we really encourages, just checking with your neighbors and those in the community who might need extra time to evacuate and really make sure that you have a plan for them because you know we've seen in the fires of the last few years. the neighbors helping neighbors on the community members helping each other is just as important as having that defensible space when the actual fires do occur. yeah and we know that this has been an unusually dry spring followed by a really dry winter. do you think that that's why we're seeing these fires pop up already? yeah, absolutely. so our fires really burned for three reasons. it's either from the weather, the topography or the fuels. and right now it's the weather and the fuelse thats because the company called energy released components the actual moisture in the vegetation. critically low for this time of year combined that with the fact that we haven't had much rain, and there's just not much moisture in the soils were concerned that that could
4:17 pm
be indicative of an early fire season. on the flip side are grasses are not as tall so our fuel density per acre is down. but as we've seen over the last few years were really at the whim of the weather, such as the offshore wind events of the lightning that might come through later in the earth. yeah and jonathan, as we know the season used only peaks between july and let's say, november. are you concerned that it may peek well before july? yeah, of course. it's always a concern of ours. we're constantly monitoring the current situations. t o get the appropriate staffing levels in place. i think i wouldn't be surprised if we have increased staffing earlier on this year to meet the threats that we're seeing, but we get concerned not only for july and thing fors this drought in these record dry conditions are extreme concern to us and it's really going to take everybody's effort to help prevent and
4:18 pm
suppress these fires and another. we've seen a lot of moving of people here in the state of california. some people leaving is that affecting at all your ability to retain firefighters and make sure that we have enough. resource is when it comes to this fire season. yeah, that's good. that's good question, either. so we have ah, pretty robust hiring system in california for cal fire one of things that were actually very lucky to have is we have ah, profession that we usually see many times more applicants than we have job position, so luckily you know there are people willing tol take the risks that we do in fighting these fires on day again. we couldn't do anything without a robust work for so. it's not not a top issue for us. re all you coming on and, you know, best wishes to all of the
4:19 pm
firefighters that are out there right now. and you know, hoping for the best this fire season. thank you again. thanks. oh well around the bay area we see changes. today a temperature is coming down the onshore breeze little bit stronger. the marine layer a little bit deeper and this is a trend we will see as we roll into our bay area saturday. how about a look outside our doors at this time of view there, the golden gate bridge where you can see the clouds overhead you could see on the right side of your screen. you got a little bit of a breeze. there is well. also a switch in the pattern with temperatures coming down anywhere from a few degrees around the bay to several degrees in limp. let's check in on the winds first, where we do have that onshore breeze and fairfield reporting. 20 mph oakland sustained us 17. and a bottle of southwest breeze at about 10 mph. the temperature is outside at this time 54 degrees half moon bay is well, a san francisco so a bit cool for you. meanwhile around the bay, we've got 60 degrees in oakland in the inner east bay 74 right now in livermore in in
4:20 pm
the north bay. a nice, mild 73 over santa rosa. how much cooler are we today? down by 13 in nevada, the inner east. they were down by 11. that looks to be those two. look to be the biggest numbers. at least we see here on the screen down by two over areas over oakland and san jose, you are four degrees. former clue a cooler this afternoon storm tracker to showing you in addition to some low cloud cover along the coastline, we have met in high level clouds streaming overhead. all this brought on by a trop that is moving through and you can see even a little bit of green there on the screen north of california over areas of. washington or again, so that cooler pattern going to remain at least through saturday. temperatures start to turn around as early as sunday. here's a view of the future cast for tomorrow morning, we wake up, perhaps even a little bit of drizzle out there, especially along the coastline, and then we'll break away toe. partly cloudy skies for most of us away from the coastline for your afternoon when i come back a look at the temperatures for tomorrow and in the extended forecast another warming trend more on this in just a bit.

4:24 pm
state's trey lance landed in the bay area late this morning and is now at 49ers headquarters in santa clara. the 49ers added lance to their roster with their first round draft pick. think the biggest thing for me is just, you know, learning that mutual little respect on that's earned, you know, especially as a quarterback obviously have to make sacrifices in the this is what i signed up for. this is what i love to do, and i can't wait to do it. but just for me, it's about shooting people the right way, leaving impact on people. that's that's bigger than football when you watch the film, and he's a quarter you see a such a true quarterback and every aspect of how he plays. and then you meet him like man. this guy doesn't have to be a quarterback. you go be a ceo of some company, then that's a huge compliment. it's a very impressive thing to watch his skill set. he has just how intelligence how he handles himself. um and then to know how he really saw his teammates. the 49ers say they wanted trey lance way back in
4:25 pm
january, and that's why they made the move last month to trade up from the 12th pick to number three in the draft. ktvu joe fonzi looks a tray lance and what this decision means for the future of the team. of the three quarterbacks the 49ers were considering it was their turn to pick north dakota state's trey lance is probably the most exciting but also may be the most intriguing and unpredictable of the people who were still on the board of that time. he's only 20 years old. number one. he's from north dakota state and as a redshirt freshman in 2019. he was the 2019 player of the year in the fcs. that's the college football's old one double a division. he led his team to 16 straight win. and the f. c s title without throwing a single interception that year. bison only played one game in 2020 covid delayed season, so he's undefeated as a collegiate. and i think there are two things that make him a zay said unpredictable, young, yet intriguing as a selection for
4:26 pm
the 49ers number one rookies who get thrown into the fire immediately have a very checkered history of development in the nfl. and the fact that jimmy garoppolo is still here and that lance will be able to understudy under garoppolo. that is the proven best way for a quarterback to develop. the other thing is, if you look in the 49ers division, where there's collar murray and arizona and russell wilson in seattle, the new trend to them or boulder quarterback guy who can hurt you with his legs and his arms. that's the type of quarterback that the 49ers have had nothing but trouble with in their last couple of years, and now, if you look in their division, there'll be three of those type of quarterbacks of the four teams in that division. so all in all, ah, roll of the dice, which any draft selection of a quarterback is, but i like this election, whose young, he's in its inexperienced but he's very intriguing. and the 49ers are gonna have to throw him into the fire right away. yeah. all
4:27 pm
right, with more adults vaccinated well, now the attention turns to teenagers coming up next, the effort of the south way to get more young people signed up for their songs. also we're now learning maura about at least four americans who were among the dozens of people killed in a stampede during a religious festival in israel. we'll have details on how this happened.

4:31 pm
really hard until local leaders in santa clara county or trying to combat that toe fight bad information with good. they've launched a youth ambassador program 250 strong so far. first the teens get educated about the safety, efficacy and necessity of the vaccines, then they're encouraged to post online so now we're challenging them to come up with their own tiktok's and other other communication methods, some of which i hadn't heard of yet. at a news conference officials explained that amongst 16 and 17 year olds on lee, one and three have been vaccinated so far, and in the latin x community. it's one in 10. and so the county is switching its strategy. more walk ups more pop ups more evening hours. more weekend hours. we were coming to you. if you can't come to us, we will come to you. let me say to our young adults in our teens. it's your turn. now it's your turn. that's the message andrea hernandez is sending to her friends think about your health and safety and your community
4:32 pm
to then get the shot. you know, it's not always about just you was a person. it's about those around you and those that you affect around you. the youth ambassador program officially launched a week ago in partnership with the office of education. their next meeting is scheduled for tomorrow. heather holmes message from the youth actually starts getting too young people. thank you so much and, well, the mass vaccination side there a dodger stadium in los angeles is now set to close by the end of may. mayor eric garcetti says that the side will wind down operations over the next month and left overdoses will then be redistributed tow walk up in mobile clinics more than 420,000 doses have been administered at dodger stadium since it opened back in january, according to the latest numbers, nearly half of l a county residents, 16 and older have gotten at least one shot. the state health department is launching new statewide tv ads
4:33 pm
to try to urge more californians to get vaccinated against covid-19. let's get you to this moment. is that it? yeah, that's a relief protection has got vaccinated. i've just got back, so we just got back to. hope so that we can get all these ads are part of the health department's let's get two immunity public education, campaign officials say the ads are designed to inspire californians to get vaccinated, especially those who are most vulnerable and disproportionately affected by covid-19. the number of people in our state getting vaccinated has slowed, but it is still steady. california has now administered nearly 30 million doses of coronavirus vaccines, according to the latest data. there are now over 337,000 shots a day being given out in the state. that's about the same as it was on wednesday, 39% of california's population of around 40 million are fully vaccinated and about 20. our
4:34 pm
partially vaccinated across the bay area right now, though some vaccination sites have plenty of supply, but just not enough people showing up. i talked earlier today with doctor orlando harris at ucsf's department of community health systems about this challenging time in the vaccine rollout and the most effective ways of convincing people who are skeptical to get the shot. the goal for us in public health and also in in health care is to be able to provide those information. toe move people along, and so when i think about like, folks who you know my cia vaccine clinic and they're just not interested at all for various reasons, we need to find out. why they're not interested, and so we need to have targeted targeted targeted interventions to reach those people to get them an appointment and to get them vaccinated. this is at this stage in the game. this is not so much about getting people the right information, the fax
4:35 pm
the data about the effectiveness of these vaccines and the safety of the vaccines. the information. is out there. this is about reaching folks in a different way. who might have really firmly held beliefs and skepticism about the health care system. and so i would take a step back and say i totally agree with you. and i think we see that with, um african american communities. we see that with other communities of color, and i think what we have to do and. public health is to confront the issue. the issue that's causing the skepticism to begin with, and that's the decades of mistrust that has been rooted in historical and of discrimina, so we have to confront that first, you know, be able to identify why folks are skeptical and not dance around it. and so hence why i don't like using the term hesitancy because you put it. you're putting that back. on the individual versus looking at
4:36 pm
some of the systemic challenges on some of the you know, i'll give an example. so you have folks who are interested in the vaccine, so they're very curious, and they want the vaccine. but. they try to schedule an appointment through the my turn system, and it's just not possible. and so for those people, it creates another layer of mistrust. when you're seeing other people who might be why you're more affluent who were getting vaccinated, but you want the vaccine and can't get it. i know you talked to me about the idea that folks who have not gotten the vaccine up until this point, it's not necessarily that it is a is a blanket. no, i will absolutely not get this shot. you know there is there is an opening, you know, maybe than in others. but can you talk about some of the instances where you had somebody who what was reluctant to get the vaccine, but you were able to convince them in one way or another, what would have been the most effective ways to convince
4:37 pm
people this is the right way to go? well and thank you for that again, alex. i will say that i would like folks to know that, uh, hesitancy doesn't equal refusal, so their ways that we can intervene with people to get them move them along to get vaccinated. and so i mentioned to you earlier that working on a project where we had several folks across the bay area in another city outside of our state. who when we spoke with him last year, there were not interested in the vaccine. it all and these were older african american adults and to find out a year later after meeting with them and talk with him again, majority of them if not all have been vaccinated. and so when we look like teased out, what's what were the reasons why you guys were able to move to get vaccinated are toe be interested in taking the vaccine. and the one common theme i think, and i think for us and public health, we have to capitalize on that. and thatd
4:38 pm
to see my new grandson or what i'm doing this because i want to see my family again. i'm doing this because. we lost a family member to covid. we had a virtual funeral and we weren't able to meet each other and celebrate that person's life. so now we're planning on meeting up as a family, so we have all been vaccinated. yeah giving people a personal reason in motivating them to get that vaccine that was doctor orlando harris from ucsf's department of community health systems. many people have been turning to food banks during the pandemic coming up next we'll tell you about the big changes that one local facility is making. to try to meet the demand. felt around the bay area this afternoon. we'll have a look at the current conditions and what you can expect for your bay area weekend coming up. lise. fo5
