5:02 pm
for now. but as ktvu is an ruben shows us the delta variant is the main factor for the mask recommendation. vaccinated or not, everyone should go back to wearing a mask indoors. that's the new recommendation from eight bay area health officers as soon as we see signals that things are worsening, it's important to act quickly if we've got the evidence to do so, and they say the evidence is mounting in san francisco, they've seen an eight fold increase in covid 19 cases in recent weeks in santa clara county numbers have tripled in our county public health lab just in the last two weeks about 43. of the cases we could sequence or that more transmissible delta variant, and that worries us that we need this added layer of protection for everyone. and so the counties of alameda contra costa marin, san francisco, san mateo, santa clara sonoma and the city of berkleyjoined forces to put out the mask recommendation. and at this point, it is just a recommendation. it is not a mandate and we do recognize
5:03 pm
that we are asking people you know, to make a sacrifice, they say masking will help protect the most vulnerable in the pot. population it will also by officials more time to see whether a spike in cases will be followed by a spike in hospitalizations and it is very possiblehat they will not increase as we're worried they might. we're doing this out of an abundance of caution because to wait to act would not be the wise thing to do, and lives could be lost unnecessarily. in los angeles county, they took a more drastic step this week, reinstating a mask mandate. infectious disease experts say that might not be needed here, thanks to a much higher vaccination rate. so when you think about the potential strain on hospital resources, it's much higher probability and southern california than the north and so health officials will wait. hopeful the hospitals don't fill up and hopeful that residents even vaccinated ones will wear their masks again in santa clara county, marisa mew knees says she will. we just want to get back to our regular lives so
5:04 pm
bad we just you know, forget how. important it is to stay safe. health officials say they'll keep an eye on the numbers and decide later whether the recommendation needs to become a mandate. in the meantime, they advise anyone who can to get the vaccine and ruben ktvu fox two news and ucsf has re implemented its mask mandate. ucsf officials say the new mandate takes effect immediately. it applies to all staff and students. ucsf says 89% of their students and staff are the vaccinated, but officials say they still expect some breakthrough cases because of that delta variant, the number of coronavirus cases statewide continues to rise more than 4600 new cases reported today. the test positivity rate is at 3.7% which is almost 1.5% higher than last week. 65 new deaths were reported today and the number of californians in the hospital with covid-19 remains over 2000 nationwide covid cases rose 70% over the last
5:05 pm
week, deaths were up 26 per sent as a delta variant spreads quickly across the country, covid related hospitalizations were up 36% last week, and u. s health officials say virtually all new patients were on vaccinated. they say that underscores the effectiveness of the vaccines and the need for americans to roll up their sleeves. if you're fully vaccinated, you are protected against severe covid hospitalization and death and are even protected against the known variants, including the delta variant. 25 states with the highest two week increase in covid cases, all have the lowest vaccination numbers. they include our neighbor nevada, along with utah, arkansas, missouri and louisiana as well. the nation is not only fighting the corona virus, it's also fighting dangerous misinformation about covid-19, according to the u. s surgeon general, who says it's a serious threat to public health. the biden administration is now working with tech companies to flag what they've deemed problematic

5:07 pm
be entirely to blame for the drop in vaccinations. the answer is if there's something on the internet that is working against the idea of getting people vaccinated and protected against this terrible disease than the government ought to be thinking about how it can be emphasizing a message about the utility of getting vaccinated, and many republicans believe the coordination with big tech will do more harm than good. private for profit corporation can make its own decisions. but when it's doing that, in collusion with government, it starts to look to me an awful lot like first amendment violation, facebook and youtube say they do bannon remove content that break their rules on covid-19 misinformation in washington. mala rivera, fox news and we have the latest data and updates for you on covid on our website at ktvu .com. you'll find recommendations on masks for where you live, plus vaccination. numbers and positivity rates, all on ktvu dot com this evening, a tragic
