omicron variant with ktvu jana katsuyama, who's live in the newsroom, janna. alex this was a huge jump in omicron cases that we saw in the united states from 13% of cases to 73% in just one week. genomic sequencing has shown that the omicron variant has been skyrocketing, rocketing and those cases and contra costa county or showing that it is circulating here in the bay area. the omicron varied, sudden surge has many people worried about a new crisis in the new year in the bay area, contra costa county announced monday. it's detected its first three oh macron cases, one was not vaccinated to re vaccinated but not yet boosted. um also far have been having mild symptoms, county health officer dr chris farley itano says none of the people had traveled. i think this gives more evidence that the quran is here circulating in our community somewhere between 15 and 25% of all. cases get hold gene sequenced so there
there certainly could be more cases out there. we just haven't picked up on monday, a pop up covid testing site at diablo valley college was fully booked . i am concerned about macron variant, um. just that it is so much more, um contagious. no, i'm not. exposed and i have no symptoms. but i just want to make sure my parents don't get you know any chance of contracting it for me, doctor fonda thanos says the omicron variant has a much shorter incubation period. it's probably around three days, whereas with delta it was four days and with previous. um strange. it was five days or more, so it spreads just really, really wrapped right now, health experts say booster shots are the most important protection. moderna released data monday, saying it's half dose booster shot increased, neutralizing antibody levels by about 37 times the pre booster shot levels but in contra costa and other beria counties, less than half of the eligible residents have received booster shots only about 34.
have been boosted. well, that's the really the key number. we're going to be following now, some health officials say, even if omicron leads to milder illness , it could still overburden the healthcare system with a shortage of staffing, provide us with adequate staff. in order to safely take care of our patients . we are asking for continued optimal ppe so that we could be protected. and today in response to the omicron surged, los angeles canceled its new year's eve celebration, and rhode island is reinstating indoor mask mandates, dr fontana says it's very important to continue to get tested. if you have any symptoms, or if you plan to travel or have a gathering with other people, a lot of new safety measures being put in place, janet thank you. another sign of the toll this virus is taking. solano county reported its first pediatric death today related to covid 19. health officials did not say whether the patient became infected with the omicron variant. the baby

precautions to ensure that everyone on the plane is vaccinated? this vaccine is available. you can't. go 20 ft without finding someone who's offering it, so there's really no excuse not to take it. and if you don't want to take it fine. that's your choice. i just don't think it should be transported it all over the country and contributing to new variants. the biden administration did say this week it is not ruling out an air travel vaccination requirement with the new omicron variants circulating rapidly. conservatives though, have been very outspoken about their opposition to federal vaccine mandates, calling them government overreach. and as we mentioned earlier, the white house is preparing tonight for a national address on the pandemic . white house press secretary jen psaki insists tomorrow's speech from president biden won't include calls for new lockdowns. we will take you to washington for the build up to tomorrow's speech coming up later tonight in this newscast. all right, taking a look outside . it is chilly out there right now, and changes are on the way
