professor ucsf and francisco saved at least 330 lives as a result of implementing orders are really at the end of the day. if you look at all the cases since the beginning i think of the epidemic even with the recent surge, california's in 34th place among the states for 4 cases. and if you look at california is that 40 us. >>governor gavin newsom unveiled most cases in the state are in los angeles county health experts citing socioeconomic issues they talk about the mission here the free jail and in alameda. >>this is like a million you know these are. you know 100 times bigger. >>i don't need to be wearing now resistance to stay at home regulations and pandemic fatigue are also driving cases in southern california la county cracking down on new year's eve parties that could turn into super-spreader events as of new year's eve, california ranks 23 out of 50 in his neck or hospital review that ranks covid test positivity rates but doctor rutherford says it is too complex to compare how california is doing then other
states that have different restrictions testing capabilities and population recourse, california have the most of everything. >>right because it's the biggest state by by twice at least 3 times. >>so we have the most cases, the most deaths, the most everything right we have to look at proportionally in order to really kind of understand this and and kind of contrast where public health campaigns have worked and where they've been less successful. >>and doctor rutherford also says california is doing very well with testing and that perhaps boost covid numbers and present a clear picture of the covid situation here compared to other states live in san francisco gayle ong kron 4 news. >>he will. >>us begin with and then admonishments which are are official warnings that are going to be documented in police reports if those in march months or not he did people can be sighted him and or arrested.
>>bringing in the new year should look and feel different from previous celebrations that is the message tonight from san francisco, public safety officials big parties like in years past are not allowed this year's the county tries to keep hospitals from being overrun with patients. extra patrols will be out enforcing the order. the city's annual fireworks display has been canceled the holiday lights exhibit in golden gate park will be turned off there that is said discourage crowds and parking lots will be closed. at places like marina green stern grove in ocean beach. >>the latest details on icu bed availability across the state in the bay area 8 and a half percent. the northern california region of about 4 times that amount in the sacramento area just under 15%. and the san joaquin valley, southern california. still full capacity meaning no icu beds available. in the south bay, the health care system is really being
stretched to the limit this new year's eve at last count fewer than 30 available icu beds in santa clara county health department is reminding folks to be careful in order to try to keep things from getting worse. >>it is the summation of all our individual and collective decisions. that decide where this pandemic goes to good use of there's any to be had is presure additional pressure that was put on after christmas. was not as great as we saw for thanksgiving. >>as for vaccinations the county has received total of 95,000 doses combined from pfizer and moderna. >>all right turning now to our 4 zone forecast this is the night where usually harassing alarm saying will the skies be clear for fireworks, a very different light doesn't really we'll still have our. >>new year's eve show at 1130 as you know lawrence, but come
midnight we'll be showing some of the best of the best from years past and will go around the world places like sydney, where they have had fireworks displays today but not setting them off in san francisco, not this year yeah, you know tonight as one of those nights where folks kind of just hanging out at home and enjoying the holiday and it looks like it's going to be a nice don't have to worry about rain tonight. it will be chilly though if you're stepping outside the backyard. well it is going to be cold temperatures going to be getting chilly as we've got to the nice cold air mass that move in behind that cold front that swept through the bay area yesterday and brought us some rain. now you can see some of the clouds working their way up in the pacific northwest but here we are seeing just some clouds high clouds moving in overhead that's about it. so that is some good news for tonight. i think in the better part of the year new york tomorrow looks mostly dry, but things will change as we get toward looks like a lot of part of the afternoon by tomorrow night temperatures out the door right now in the 40's in the 50's so getting chilly already in spots year new year
celebration. as we head in toward midnight plan on the temperatures in the mid 30's in the valleys you see 40's inside the bay. and then as we head toward tomorrow, you're going to see a mixed bag, you see some sunshine and some passing clouds should be mostly dry chance of showers though develops by tomorrow night guys back to you. >>and dan thorn live in san francisco where police continue to investigate after 2 people were struck and killed by a hit and run driver we'll have the details coming up. >>plus hundreds of vaccine doses destroyed on purpose tonight, the person responsible is out of a job and facing charges. >>and would it make any sense to vaccinate more people now before anybody gets a second dose could that even be done we'll talk to a local infectious disease expert. >>and don't forget to join my lovely bride just seen waltman and me as we ring in the new year's stay safe. stay home in counted down watch a
aurora health the employee remove nearly 5 dozen viles of the vaccine from a refrigerator over the weekend. the vaccine of course must be stored at below freezing temperatures and can only be kept at room temp for up to 12 hours. so is no good now the employees actions. ruined 500 doses. he was subsequently fired and arrested on charges that include recklessly endangering safety. >>meantime vaccine distribution across the u.s.. it has been slower than expected that combined with the discovery of a new covid mutation that is apparently more contagious. then what we have known is leading to questions about distribution whether it might make more sense to administer a second dose to frontline health care workers or for the initial dose to more people. and we welcome doctor, peter, chin-hong an infectious disease expert at ucsf doctor, thank you so much. >>i think the idea that might be confusing to people so far
they're being told. 2 doses are needed not necessarily clear how long the first one is good before you need the second one. so does that idea make sense to you. >>the idea that you can just give one large swath of the population with studio says and save half of them for a second shot. you know the first from folks who have gotten you know does make from a population perspective, but it's not based on too much data is just based on some modeling which you know again assumes that you can distribute the vaccines appropriately. it also seems that we're kind of stuck with this stash, but there are luckily, some other vaccines in the queue for being approved soon so i think that could also add to the numbers so i think you know it's a complicated situation. i think of a very svelte distribution
system. it could be an option to just immunize as many people as possible with the star city i've. because even though it wouldn't prevent you from potentially getting. covid there's some data saying you've heard probably prevent a lot of sense about ago serious disease by just getting one of the 2, but again we it's kind of a day to free zone overall. doctor chin-hong i think a lot of people at home are going to say well i thought it the second dose had to be you know 3 weeks or so after the first. >>you know we don't want to create any doubt in the public about whether or not this. this vaccine is legit weather in they should trusted what is your feeling and you we have any data that would suggest if if everybody gets one dose. you know could they get the second dose say in august and would that be ok that's to work.
>>i wouldn't risk and at this point again if you look at the data we know that the data says that you needed at this particular time. and when you get it at that particular time you get more than 95%. efficacy we don't know what the efficacy is longer intervals. it's just a leap of faith and if if there is vaccine that you have available. i personally wouldn't risk it. >>doctor you know we've been talking a lot about the fact the virus is mutating a more contagious apparently a more contagious does out there how could that change thanks. well i think. >>what it can do potentially infect a lot more people there's no evidence that this virus variance result in more. folks to get sicker per se but just from a numbers perspective issue in fact a lot more people if 12% of those infected will end up in
the hospital that's a lot of more people coming to the hospital and again we're kind of out the breaking point right now so anymore for innovation of that with could be disastrous. we talk about the problems with the rollout the feds say it's up to the states to distribute the vaccine. >>but we have millions of unused. you know covid shots that are in states throughout the country that are in people's arms. do you blame. governors do blame the feds i know at the end of the day, you know the blame game isn't that useful. but we need to figure this out and figure out a better way to do this. so >>you know i think overall what the issue is is that not enough investment was given and public health which is the distribution part and more was given to the science part which is developing the vaccine. you kind of have to need both. so specifically about public health.
>>the. >>states us for 8 billion dollars to help with the distribution part and they will only given 340 million so it just speaks to the fact that they have vastly underfunded to the job that this was to do which is you know get that vaccine into the arms of people after has been shipped so that 3 for the distribution one is the storage. you need a coach and not you know as you mentioned that early a story. if you just leave it out for a lot of could invalidate the vaccine. the second s is this surge so because of that series if you're a be able to give vaccines in some places, including california and the 3rd asked is of course the states that the power it said do this was given to the states. and you know we know that in the past with simple things like masks and ppe diagnostic test kits these weren't even able to be
distributed properly on a national level. so of course it's a no-brainer that we're having desperate problems with distributing the vaccines are doctor peter, chin-hong we always appreciate your insight and. >>again happy new year. thank you for joining us. >>the happy you guys got some bubbly to the head. he was well thanks doctor to not happy new year. well this is just a sad sad story a product of the pandemic in part. another san francisco landmark has been removed the iconic cliff house side hoops get it in there be careful, you hope they preserve that thing the cliff house sign was removed, and you know that sign really presided bookended the west end of the city for more than a century it was taken down today as the restaurant prepares to close its doors for the final time, the restaurant of course was closed for months because of the pandemic cliff house owners though also blame a contract dispute with the
national park service we caught up with that a couple of residents of the city who say they are just disheartened by this loss. >>well that's part of san francisco history. and one tobacco or history or connection to the city. >>i succumb as a boy to play line at the beach. the plane there. and my mom and took us kids to sutro baths back in early 60's. it was this. and now seen the clip asca leaving is just really sad. >>it's terrible and another iconic site that we lost this year the coca-cola sign here. yeah that was about i don't know, i'm guessing a month or 2 ago it this taken out at the end of october after. >>83 years. >>big story we're following the chp they've initiated a maximum enforcement period meaning they're looking for drivers who are speeding distracted. under the influence. and let's look live at the bay bridge toll plaza
pretty clear right now, but this a maximum enforcement period will last through sunday night. let's welcome back chief meteorologist lawrence karnow lawrence you're saying rain this holiday weekend. yeah usually we're concerned about rain tonight and possibly be now the roads late tonight, re not going to be the issue tonight we're going to keep things nice and dry outside. >>will be cold if you're stepping outside their the temperatures dropping off in the 30's and the mid 40's by about midnight, but no threat of any rain maybe couple patches of fog developing some of the valleys but that will be until after midnight tonight into early tomorrow morning, otherwise clear out there right now temperatures are getting a little bit cold 48 in palo alto 49 in morgan hill 44 for friends in livermore it's 52 degrees in san francisco, 47 in san anselmo get down to 44 in santa rosa right now so getting chilly in spots but high pressure just strong enough to send the jet stream to the north that is sending the rain line in that direction for now and the better part of the day tomorrow. but then things begin to change that low
starts to drop it and here we go getting a little bit close kind of knocking on the door by tomorrow evening may be some showers developing and then overnight tomorrow night we see the rain begin to move into parts of the north and then spreading across the rest the bay area looks like the day tomorrow, mostly dry day temperatures will be in the 50's and the 60's. but as we look toward the new year. yeah we've got some changes come in we've got a lot of rain on the way some big time storms rolling in as we head into next week could be a concern thank you notes next 58 lawrence well, another unwanted development this year a historic and devastating wildfire season been one thing after another this year residents several bay area county sadly have been. >>forced from their homes in 2020 some of them on more than one occasion. >>also some of the worst air quality in the world that led to a day which look to some people a little like the end of the world kron 4 sanaz tahernia takes a look back 2020 was a devastating year for california wildfires as of december 3rd.
