one year ago today the first covid-19 case was found here in the bay area. now of course there are hundreds of thousands of cases in the region. it comes as more and more people are getting vaccinated, bringing what they say is hope and relief. good morning. it is sunday, january 31st. i'm kate larson in for liz kreutz. much more to get to on how we are doing with covid cases and vaccines but we start with a look at weather. meteorologist lisa argen. good morning. >> good morning to you. some pretty views out there this last day of january bringing in a dying front to the north of us. it hasn'tneachinguch of
marin county, but we had a few showers overnight. the possibility exists for the north bay today but otherwise it's a mix of clouds and sun and that next system offshore is going to bring widespread rain for your monday. 51 downtown, 52 in san jose, 54 in half moon bay. southerly winds are keeping us milder this morning. it will get warm they are afternoon. mid-50s in napa, a mix of clouds and sun today for partly to mostly cloudy skies, numbers in the low to mid-60s in the east bay and south bay where we have more sunshine. it will be dry tonight, and we are tracking a level 1 system that will bring over a half inch of rain in some neighborhoods, and that's in a few minutes. kate?one-year anniversary since the first confirmed case of covid was detected in the bay area. it happened in santa clara county on the same day that the u.s. declared a national public health emergency. now a year later, the ten bay area counties have more than 385,000 confirmed cases and 4,300 reported deaths.
santa clara county has been the hardest hit with over 101,000 cases of the virus alone. the county has seen 1,300 covid-related deaths. now to the state. california is reporting both encouraging and disappointing coronavirus numbers. coronavirus is killing at a record pace with the state reporting more than 40,000 deaths as overall cases begin the taper. deaths are often the last metric to decrease after a surge. johns hopkins data shows 1 in every 1,000 people in california died from the virus. there is some reassurance, though. the number of infected people in the hospital continues to drop. the latest positivity rate is now at 6.9%, the lowest in some time. last saturday it was at 8.5%. this is the first weekend of outdoor dining for san francisco in some time, but there is still some concern as the new covid variants were found in the bay area and restaurant owners are
once again caught in between, trying to make ends meet and keeping everyone safe. doctors say there is a way to do it, and abc7 news reporter luz pena was in the marina district where restaurants welcomed back customers. >> reporter: after nearly two months, this is what this group of friends had been waiting for. >> we get tested. we're very on top of everything. it's just knowing your bubble and being strong and supporting everybody. >> reporter: as more plates of food keep rushing out of the kitchen, the owner, stella, is feeling hopeful for their future. a week ago, they were not too sure they were going to survive. >> i don't think if one more time we'll need to close, we're done. >> reporter: but seeing groups of people eating together is also concerning for some san francisco residents who say more safety guidelines should be in place. >> in many cases, there are six
people together, none wearing masks. >> reporter: at least at this restaurant, they're staying vigilant. >> they cannot come to the restaurant without the mask. >> reporter: that excitement is keeping many of these restaurants alive, and the other, infectious disease doctors tell me, there are three covid-19 variants circulating the bay area. >> i think that at least the big british variant, the one that seems to spread more quickly, is very susceptible to the vaccine. >> reporter: even with these mutations of the virus, dr. rutherford is optimistic. he's helping the san francisco department of public health with a case study on covid-19 and outdoor dining. what are you hoping to find with this data that you're collecting? >> in real time, to go back and look at, you know, obviously say let's figure out where the last 100 people got infected, right, that would be pretty helpful. then you know what you have to tweak. >> reporter: in san francisco, luz pena, abc7 edp r ence to ge9
vaccine on the peninsula. the free clinic provided that highlykov itted shot to low-income seniors and caregivers. many told abc7 news reporter cornell barnard this gives them hope. >> well, i feel good. i feel good about it. >> relief? >> big relief. >> reporter: 83-year-old clara jackson got vaccinated. so did rose jacobs gibson at long last. >> i'm feeling good about it. i'm feeling good about the fact that it's available and i had the privilege of taking it. >> reporter: the health center in east palo alto hosted the clinic after securing 1,100 moderna vaccine doses from san mateo county for local seni seniors. >> we also heard that the community has been waiting for a while, so we've opened it up to our neighbors as well that are not our patients. >> are you the caregiver? >> yes. >> do you want to get the shot as well? >> yeah. >> reporter: the line outside was long. caregivers and health care workers were invited to get the shot. brenda triplet brought her mom.
having the vaccine gives us much more assurance and it's very relieving for us to know that it's done. >> reporter: h-o-p-e. hope. >> reporter: the mayor says that hope is coming to this community. >> this is an issue of equity, an issue of social justice and economic justice. we can do that by providing free vaccinations for people who don't have access to health insurance. >> looking at our senior population hit hard, may not have internet for access to digital services, so to have this moment here to get vaccinated is historic. >> reporter: clinic organizers weren't sure how many people would show up. they hoped to have enough vaccine for everyone. >> we would be okay running out. at least we would be able to vaccinate 1,100 people today. >> reporter: everyone who got vaccinated on saturday will come back on february 27th for the second shot. ravenswood family health center hopes to have more vaccination clinics in the future.
cornell barnard, abc7 news. we do are some new details on a lafayette vaccine clinic that will be shut done after complaints of vaccine misuse. that's according to the "san francisco chronicle". the pop-up clinic seen on january 16th vaccinated more than 600 people. contra costa received a complaint alleging that vaccinations were given to people who shouldn't have received them. dr. rebecca parish, who ran the clinic, told the chronicle that a doctor who volunteered at the clinic filed those complaints. she added she expected to be cleared of any wrongdoing. we are tracking california's vaccination progress on our website, and you can too. you can check out where distribution stands and when you might be eligible to get the shot that's on our website, abc7news.com. and starting tomorrow, a new cdc order will require that all passengers and transit workers nationwide must wear a mask, not just in planes, trains and buses but in transportation hubs and term nams as well.
abc7 news reporter matt boone explains much of the support came from bus drivers who say their industry has been hit hard by covid-19. >> i've been complaining from the get-go this should have been mandated from the federal government. >> reporter: john costa runs the amalgamated transit union representing transit workers across the country. he says they've had at least 15 members die from covid-19 in california. >> in the bay area alone i believe it was six members. >> reporter: here in sa wn eari mask is already required to get a fare on the buses. they have these simple infographics trying to make it as clear as possible. but compliance is not always there. >> i don't think that anyone should feel like they're above anyone or have some type of god complex and think that they shouldn't wear a mask. >> reporter: she takes b.a.r.t. several days a week for work and says she still sees people wisk >> absolutely. i feel that because now we have
new variants of the virus that are spreading or it's becoming prevalent, i think that it is essential to have a mask, currently, especially in my condition. >> reporter: others were skeptical a federal order would have much impact at this point. >> someone's got to enforce that. so it's a matter of who's going to do it. >> reporter: drivers worry it's still going to be them. >> when you have to enforce a mask policy because a passenger is not wearing a mask, you cannot concentrate on the road. >> reporter: jon court knee is a former bus driver and president of the local union in san jose. >> our drivers are scared to death because of the upsurge we've had recently. they're really afraid to drive. >> reporter: still it's a policy the union had been fighting for and one they hope will create a unified approach across the country. >> if it was already here, i think we would have saved more lives. i believe this initiative today will save lives. >> reporter: in san francisco, matt boone, abc7 news. lisa, i'm looking at the shot behind me and it looks like
an absolutely beautiful morning here in the bay area. >> it is. we'll have more sun for the first part of the day, and as we look live, emeryville, numbers are mild in the mid-50s, but oakland 57 degrees. we have south winds and mix of clouds and sun to start your sunday. we'll finish with a few more clouds and leading to some rain for monday and even tuesday. we'll plot that out for you. also next, today's sunday "san francisco chronicle" has phil matier's final column.
hi, i'm pat and i'm 75 years old. we live in the mountains so i like to walk. i'm really busy in my life; i'm always doing something. i'm not a person that's going to sit too long. in the morning, i wake up and the first thing i do is go to my art studio. a couple came up and handed me a brochure on prevagen. i've been taking prevagen for about four years. i feel a little bit brighter and my mind just feels sharper. i would red t. it absolutely work agen. healthier brain. better life.
congratulationf 's last days in the chronicle newsroom at 5th and mission. how does it feel? >> it feels a little bit like getting out of school for the summer, you know? there's only so much time in life, only so much time in the day, and right now i'm at the point where i get to choose what it is i'm going to be doing and where i want to have my interests. i've enjoyed for writing for the newspaper for lo these many years, a challenge, a joy, never a shortage of controversy, comedy, corruption, and characters in the bay area to cover. but time to move on. in this case, as you said, i have some time on my hands, how will i spend it?
doing the things i really enjoy and one of the things is working with abc7 covering not only the issues but some of the news behind the issues and how they affect people's lives in a real way. >> absolutely. and, phil, i know your phone is already ringing this morning. your sources aren't going anywhere. i want to jump into today's column that you wrote about an uptick in oakland violence. it's become a problem this year. it wasn't just the pandemic year. in 2019 it was becoming a bigger problem too. >> yeah. we get these reports in the news business about, for example, homicides and there's been 14 so far over in oakland in this year alone. th this is only the first month. there were 50 gunshot wounds treated at highland hospital, which is sort of the center for trauma in the east bay as well. that shows you that while not everyone winds up in the statistics we report about, how many lives are impacted? and the number of shootings that is going on in the east bay, the
high caliber of weaponry shattering people's windows, sending kids under their beds, some getting hit in the cross fire, it's really getting out of hand. now, all of this is being done while we are talking about defunding, refunding, and reimagining the police. and there's what makes it important. while we have our aspirations for change and we want to make things better, we have to keep an eye on the ground and people's lives, people being directly affected by our decisions, not just sort of the lofty ideals. and i think you've been covering it in san francisco where there's been a push to let's say decrease the jailing of people for nonviolent crimes. and what'sha nghrh you've been covering? >> absolutely. i was going to say the violent crimes in oakland are certainly super problematic, but i live in san francisco, i'm from here, and i'm hearing frustration from folks about property crimes in san francisco seemingly on the rise. not as terrible as a shooting in your neighborhood, but i don't
think folks should have to assume that their car is going to get broken into. this is happening in neighborhoods all across the city or that we've covered, the dog who was snatched in russian hill and the dog's owner was assaulted. i know several people whose garages have been broken into. so there's just a ton of frustration. phil, i'm curious where you think this is going. >> we're at a very significant turning point in california. there is a big push for what we call judicial reform and the justice and equity movement within the judicial system, to make up for past inequities. it's very valid and repolicing and de-escalating police presence all very valid. the idea of sending say professional mental health people out to handle homeless situations and drug problems rather than police all very valid. but how do we do that in a balanced way that keeps people safe? and that is a real challenge and we'll be seeing a lot more of that in this year. here in san francisco, we have
reform movement, and we're starting to see questions arise about people that are in jail, let out of jail, not charged, waiting to make court appearances. are those valid? is it continuing to be safe? and it's going to be something that is going to be on the top of the agenda statewide as we move forward. we've got to keep an eye on it because change is change, but you have to make sure it's change for the better. >> absolutely, phil. we've been asking the tough questions here on abc7 of the district attorney and of governor newsome. a recall movement is picking up. never a dull moment in california politics. newsome said this when asked a question about whether the prospect of a recall was influencing his decisions about the pandemic and lockdown. take listen. >> yeah, it's just complete, utter nonsense, so let's just dispense with that fundamental, foundationally nonsense. >> well, foundationally
fundamental, the governor is undergoing a cleat shake-up of of staff andis t people in shos that he erd the t unemployme department, which had trouble getting checks out to people and was billed billions of dollars for fraudulent claims because they didn't have a check system to check whether people were in prison. 35 states have it. we don't. the latest is his team is very concerned and one of the reasons for the shake-up is the vaccination effort. it has not hit the numbers that it was supposed to. it's not just california. but this is the biggest thing on the table right now is vaccinating people. and i will tell you that his camp has polled and found vaccine is at the top of the li, ttg enomyack ischooown further. you've been covering the vaccine
tewh a seeing o there? whey do you think it's slowing down? >> well, phil, i've spoken to folks at county health departments, the experts, doctors on california vaccine commit detees and i'm hearing t science, so much investment, billions to of dollars into these vaccines, which i'm told is typical of u.s. health care, but there was absolutely no investment, money or time, to the actual logistics and distribution of those vaccines. so there's clearly a problem when it comes to the u.s. public health care system and how to roll this vaccine in a mass way, especially here in california, such awe huge state, such a diverse state. but then this blue shield distribution plan comes out of the blue, the middle of last week. i was caught off guard. i'm talking to my sources. they're surprised. there's no information about how much blue shield is being paid, why they were chosen, and what is the plan to get this vaccine
out to the masses of california. and, you know, phil, blue shield is a huge insurance company, major player in sacramento. they donated to newsome's campaign. >> and a number of other campaigns. >> yeah. >> you know, it is interesting. i guess we could sum it up by saying this. it was like we're out there drilling for oil looking for the vaccine, and we drilled down, drilled down, and bam, we hit the geyser and found the vaccine only to find out we never set up a pipeline to distribute it, to move it around. and so we sort of got this and despite months of sort of it's coming, it's coming, california isn't alone, but other states are doing a better job of it. now we've reached out, the governor reached out to blue shield to help in administering it or spreading it around. again, there is a lot of confusion going on. who is going to be eligible for it? depends on where you are in the state. is it over 75, 65? police aren't getting it but firefighters are.
teachers, are they going to be at the front or not? when are schools going to open? all of this is in there. as you said, it hasn't been clear. and if it doesn't clear up, i think governor gavin newsom could be in trouble because that's what's going to get people to sign the petition. it won't be whether he's a democrat or republican or philosophically where you stand. it's practically on the ground, are you getting a vaccine or are you not. the next two months are going to be very telling for him and the virus containment as well. >> then there's the variant, the uk variant. seems to d well with the vaccine but not so much the south african variant. it would have been nice if we were farther ahead in the vaccine process before we get into more trouble with needing multiple covid vaccine solutions to this. >> we've been running against the clock since the beginning of this. questions about how wedon't, what data was used to progress. we've been very lucky or either very conscious in the bay area because we are lower than southern california and other
parts of the country. can we maintain that? can we maintain it and still bring the businesses back? that's a challenge we'll face across the board. >> well, phil, on to a hopefully lighter topic, we lamented yesterday when we were on the phone that we don't like the question what was your favorite story because most reporters like whatever they're working on. but you have had the privilege of knowing and getting to know a seriously important cast of characters here in the bay area and california. we'd love to know about some of your favorite memories the billy brown, dianne feinstein, london breed, kamala harris, you know them all. >> i do. they've all sort of come out of here. don't forget jerry brown and a host of other people that have come out of the bay area. willy brown, every time he does something right he does three thingsinfuriat it keeps you hopping.
i have to tell you, he once said, you know, we were talking about it, he said, you know, phil, i have been investigated by every initial agency, abc, fbi, cia, you name it, i've been investigated by. and they've never found anything. did it ever occur to any of you guys in the press that i might be honest? that was pi response as well. dianne feinstein, she led this city through some of its darkest hours. it will be interesting to see how she finishes out what is indeed going to be her final term in the u.s. senate. london breed, young, coming up, and faced one of the biggest crises any politician or leader has faced. all of them coming out of san francisco. we'll see them as they move on. kamala harris, well, she came to us from oakland and she made a star. she has become the story of the year as she's moved up to break so many ceilings and make her way up to be the vice president. and i think we're just beginning
to see her career as it really takes off in a national spotlight. >> absolutely. we're all looking forward to that. phil, thank you so much for spending your sunday morning with us. we all want to congratulate you here at abc7. >> thank you. >> i hope we're still in semilockdown that you have a chance to celebrate whether via zoom or, i don't know, a stroll. >> the biggest celebration you can get is knowing that you've done your best and people have been affected by it. we're going to keep doing that because that is what the celebration is. it's not champagne. it's making change in the right way. >> thank you, phil. i always enjoy seeing you in the newsroom and can't wait to see you around the abc halls even more. have a great day. >> all right. >> see you soon. >> take care. 's final column i today's "san francisco chronicle." he will be back on abc7. we do have to get to meteorologist lisa arge good ou

where these folks got it. we're focused on preventing further spread. >> reporter: the u.s. is vaccinating about 1.2 million people a day. so far only seven states have vaccinated more than 10% of their populations. long lines of cars at this vaccination site in denver. and in houston, veterans began lining up hours before this va medical center opened its walk-in vaccine clinic. vaccine supplies are running low in many places, but a third option could soon be available. johnson & johnson expected to request emergency use authorization as early as next week. >> the data look robust enough that they likely go go ahead with it, which means probably by sometime mid to end of february we start to be getting some doses in. >> reporter: unlike pfizer and moderna's vaccine, johnson & johnson's is a single-dose one and done shot and it doesn't need to be stored at subzero temperatures. >> these properties may be useful in a mass vaccination campaign because complexity is the enemy of efficiency.
