8:05 am
every american that needs care. yes, the americans that need care from this serious virus in this pandemic. >>but also americans that need care for their other medical conditions and i think every governor and mayor recognizes that although we are moving this vaccine as fast as possible. and it will be immunizing health care workers and a limited number of vulnerable individuals that are and how long term care facilities. >>that leaves still a 100 million or so americans with comorbidities that we know. >>often resolved in hospitalizations are succumbing to this virus and so we're asking everybody to make these changes now how did we end up getting here if we had all warner mask. if we had not gathered outside of our household. your governor will not be making these recommendations at this point and i think our behaviors will determine the next 4 to 6 weeks of what americans survive and what americans
8:06 am
don't survive. >>in april also determine what happens with. hospital rates in san francisco, specifically health officials there are worried that they hospital icu units are going to get overwhelmed. maybe even as early as christmas this graph kind of shows you what they think will play out the ex is that you see on the graph on the left side, those are the actual available beds right now, and it's hovering right around 100 the blue line shows us what they're projecting if the trend continues and you can see the indication there by the yellow arrow that is when the graph crosses below 0 meaning we would be out of icu beds by december 26 that's something health officials are desperate to avoid. >>let's take a look at the latest numbers of california setting a record the biggest single day in cases over the weekend more than 30,000 new covid cases on saturday. that's the most in a single day since the pandemic began more than 300 new patients went into the hospitals across

8:09 am
>>doctor colfax says that not only would they not be able to take care of covid patients but also patients with other health needs as well those facing emergency needs. >>and that's a scary scary thought so we're now on lockdown in most of the bay area hopefully while these are scary predictions to hear hopefully it really pushes people to stay at home as much as possible and when they leave their homes put on that mask, reporting live in san francisco sarah stinson kron 4 news, thanks. a lot sarah. >>let's take a look at the numbers in california then we've had well over 1.3 million positive coronavirus tests come in and approaching now 20,000 deaths in our state including 2027 people who died of covid here in the bay area. and national news president trump's personal attorney she has covid rudy giuliani tested positive and right now is being treated at a georgetown

8:11 am

8:12 am
i'm looking at your mri. your shoulder seems to be healing nicely. i'm sorry baby... i don't want you to play with that... (singing) twinkle, twinkle little star. how i wonder what you are... how are you doing? schedule a video visit with your doctor. kaiser permanente. thrive.
8:13 am
with your doctor. we have the power to harness abundant wind and solar energy, but it's not available all day long. use less from 4 to 9 pm and we can protect california for generations to come.
8:14 am
>>it's 13 is the time hold on to your hat. that's my advice today and you're in need that. seriously it is windy, but it is warm out there that's like the plus at least through the 60's but you can't really enjoy it. >>when the wind is you all and not just leaves all over street when i came in and iowa. there was stuff like breeze i saw like a tarp and i didn't know was in it there's all kinds of things, i'm working series of the same down a little bit on road because there was a trash can on the embarcadero what yeah you don't want that in your car you're making your way into work. wind is definitely the first thing you're going to notice about today and the thing that is upping our fire danger more than anything else to we're in the midst of some
8:15 am
late season red flag warnings right now and we're december talking sunshine 60's already and the strong winds that we do have high fire danger with red flag warnings in effect through 05:00pm tonight. >>for all of the north bay, the inland east bay and then coastal portions of san mateo county winds gusting regularly as high as 45 miles per hour peak us on our mountain tops amounting to as much as 60 miles per hour. the one good thing about these winds they've really cleaned up the air we had spare the air alerts over the weekend. those a thing of the past now that still stagnant air has been filtered out now we're back to some good conditions across the bay area futurecast shows clear and dry conditions all across the region. these are offshore wind so it's helping to push any sort of fog. a marine layer. well away from the coastline while the coast is very warm this morning in crystal clear we're going to remain that way into tomorrow morning too aside from the winds today will be likely a record breaker as far as temperatures go you notice a lot of upper 60's to low 70's
8:16 am
for daytime highs across the region. temperatures for this time of year supposed to be in the low to mid 60's at our warmest so today's daytime highs in the 70's will likely be record breaking for many spots. santa clara campbell, san jose and milpitas each at low 70 today. hayward also right at 70 degrees with oakland and concord as well san leandro at 71 or 72 today, north bay temperatures in some cases even warmer than that for santa rosa in petaluma today will be 73 degrees for your daytime highs. tomorrow will be another above average one before we see temperatures falling a lot closer to normal after that point red flag warnings expire at 05:00pm today after that were much calmer tomorrow a much calmer start to your morning to actually get outside and be able to enjoy some of those 70's. rebecca all right, thank you. john yes, we're definitely seeing a windy commute this morning. so be careful make sure they have both hands on the steering wheel because it is causing some issues. >>and it has been over the last couple of hours,
8:17 am
especially if you're going to be taking the bay bridge and if you're in a high profile vehicle just be real careful on the span traffic is really light it's been moving well all morning long, but we did have debris earlier on the span itself. that's kind of snagged up the drive for a little bit but everything back to normal under 15 minutes to make your way across the upper deck and into san francisco to that fremont street exit. but just a couple of drive times to take notice things look really good from your livermore valley commute trying to make it out to the dublin. interchange that's a quick 10 minute trip on west bound 5.80 and then if you're traveling on south 6.80 getting from the dublin into fremont up and over the snow great there. only 14 minutes for your southbound the ride but there has been a couple of problems on the nimitz freeway. in the southbound direction southbound 80 from stanley and redoubts milpitas 31 minutes that's because we've had a couple of spinouts and also hitting debris in the roadway. so again winds might be a factor there so just to be extra careful this morning
8:18 am
as you're driving around 7 minutes though on to 37 from milpitas trying to get to sunnyvale and making that connection with one oh one on the complete bridge check coming up in just a bit back to the news. >>the buzz the forty-niners play their first home away from home game tonight in arizona. the cardinals to share state farm stadium like a good neighbor, but let's hope we do better than they did the rams destroyed the cardinals sunday 38 to 28. thanks to jared goff taking care of the cardinals and the seahawks losing help san francisco. stay alive. the raiders are alive, thanks to a long shot. they were about to become the only team the jets could be until derek carr found rookie henry ruggs with 5 seconds left. >>i needed to play and call me
8:19 am
code out of the don't move in you know what's coming up the bond i kind of see that is there and i got to be different this saying silent bank is exactly what you say like the ball was an have like like you just couldn't come down and i said to and make the play. >>with that play the raiders save face 31 to 28 few to be beaten by the jets that would have been a real slap in the face. >>doesn't like the actual beating though that logan paul is in for. >>when he gets into the ring with floyd mayweather mayweather has 50 wins under his world champion belt. logan paul has had one fight with a fellow youtuber and he lost by all accounts, he's going to get. >>killed but i guess he must watch his brother jake knockout nate robinson last week and thought hey i can do that boxing looks fun.
8:20 am
>>yeah, that was a retired basketball player and. >>jake had been training for a year. james if you want to see a live streaming cost 25 bucks for the first million that they sell pay per view after that the price goes up to 70 bucks as you get closer to the fight want to pay 70 bucks for it all just to hear about it the day after because you know it's going to have knows how this is going to end up if it doesn't go the way we all think about that i will be the shocker. then that will be a real circus and i guess the mayweather coming out over time or for that he came out like a 100 million doll%rs to mcgregor. >>so regular was a a real might or might are absolutely mean this is ridiculous if i was the paul's logan and jake's mother i'd ca that >>it killed for this money boys, yeah, it's not it's not worth it. the warriors start group practice today ok and if
8:21 am
i were their mother i'd be saying you better social distance or else you're going to lose a lot of money. >>here's the deal. the nba is going to be policing their behavior on. and off the court and so the team facilities and even on the private time players and staff are not allowed to on their own time james go to bars clubs shows they can't go to public gyms spas. they not allowed to go to any indoor gathering with more than 15 people the fund-raisers nothing like that and when they play away, you know they stay in a hotel, they can only leave if they want to go out to eat and even then it has to be outdoor private room in a restaurant or an nba approved restaurant thinking on $0.4 well think about this they're going to enforce it with penalties and suspensions and if they break the rules and they end up having to quarantine they will be docked. the pay for the games that they miss so like let's take it again example steph curry because he makes the most this this season 43 million dollars cut you
8:22 am
divide that by 72 games. that's about 600 grand a game he runs. so can you imagine like. let's say he just went somewhere on his private time he was exposed they call that wasn't allowed they trace it back and then they go now you miss this game because of quarantine and if you're courting for 14 days, you could have a number of games in those 14 madgen. >>so nobody's going to be breaking these rules there to be self-policing because they don't want to money messed with right then they don't want the season messed with, but they're not in a bubble. so this is the way they're creating their own little bubble. we'll see how goes show's that is the
8:23 am

8:31 am
out for other debris that may have made its way into the roadway to. >>fire danger is heightened because we're in the midst of some continued dry conditions and of course the winds on top of that we know what that does suit hurt our view shows you the clear skies that we have this is an offshore wind so it's keeping marine layer pushed well away from the coastline. current winds, the breezy estan half moon bay sonoma petaluma and santa rosa just to name a few spots now we are in the midst of our windiest of conditions right now so later today, winds will gradually come down and red flag warnings will expire at 05:00pm right now they are in effect from the inland north bay all the way to the coast inland east bay as well as coastal san mateo county. rebecca. >>thank you john yes, it is a windy monday morning and we're some bay area quite windy as well you can kind of see the right hand side of your screen there in the palm trees flying. and that the approach to the bay bridge toll plaza chp has a high wind advisory

8:37 am
community we're here we're here for you and if you guys all want to ban together with us and try to fight to get our kids. back to his campus safely, let's do this. >>berkeley public schools is still working on a plan for hybrid learning right now and it depends on when the county gets a handle on the numbers as to when that might kick in a similar rally. like this was held in saturday in san francisco. >>there's a new breath allies are test for covid-19 dallas based company world inc along with texas anm and u.s. air force teamed up for what they called the world's. protect a person basically blows into this machine with a disposable straw and that takes the place of the nose swab this machine will then test the air that you breathe out for specific compounds that your body produces if it's fighting covid-19 if it detects those compounds it will send that results straight to your phone in a matter of seconds. at it.
8:38 am
>>you know for literally like 5 2nd boer, the system in less than minute you're going to result right and so the goal that put that on the cell phone. >>pretty interesting approach to this for now the prototype isn't being used to officially diagnose anyone with covid just yet it's being used more of a way to screen people to let them know if they should go get a more comprehensive test all the comp at the company says that this device is pretty accurate. in fact they say it's comparable to the results that you get from the swab test. >>it's a 38 and still ahead on the kron 4 morning news, a group of bipartisan lawmakers to supporting a second stimulus package. what is included in it. and firefighters getting ready as parts of the bay area are dealing with dangerous conditions right now plus we're going hear from the few survivors of pearl harbor who are still with us as we remember the attack to push the u.s. into world war 2.79 years later.
8:39 am
8:40 am
8:41 am
>>it 41 is the time to go shuns over second stimulus package are still ongoing. there is a little bit of progress in fact some of the good news is that word from congress is that there is growing bipartisan support for this bill which totals about 900 billion dollars right now. and it would provide $300 in extra unemployment benefits to
8:42 am
americans and a freeze on evictions too. the only downside is it does not include the $1200 stimulus check. that we've received over the summer senate minority leader chuck schumer those urging his colleagues to back this deal. he says he supports it. especially since the money that 13 million americans are receiving right now in unemployment benefits are set to expire at the end of the month. >>bottom line is very simple. so many millions have been thrown out of work through no fault of their own. they've been living not not looked curiously and on less salary than they usually get. the pandemic unemployment insurance program we pass. on december 26. all go away unless congress acts quickly. >>now the bipartisan relief package is part of a larger spending bill that's aimed at avoiding a government shutdown and congress has until next friday to get that passed. >>well has been a very windy
8:43 am
morning red flag warning still remain in effect right now through 05:00pm today across the north bay and for the inland east bay too far as our peak wind gust go look at this bout say alina topping up at 70 miles per hour. the oakland hills in half moon bay at around 37 to
8:44 am
8:45 am
>>id 4 to 5 and happening now we are in a wildfire risky time because of we showed you
8:46 am
the gusty winds. and we also have dry conditions we're showing that year and why there's a red flag warning and a wind advisory and those are in effect in the bay area, especially in the north they and the east bay hills. this is a rare warning for december in northern california and with no relief in sight. >>most of the models have been showing very limited chance for precipitation in terms of red warnings in the month of december we had 2 other instances over the last 10 years as the previous one was actually back in 2017. and then the one before that was in 2013. so those were also particularly dry years and we had some pretty historic fires during those years as well. >>the red flag warning is all day today through 5 o'clock this evening and firefighters mention it's a good time to make sure they have an emergency plan and you know the escape route in case there's a fire in your neighborhood so we're to be talking about this in december but yeah here we are we just
8:47 am
