8:02 am
might spark. >> even though you know, we're we're in the winter season. we just haven't had the rain that we would normally be getting and runs months. our last trains been over a month ago. so our fuel conditions are prime for a wind event like this, that they actually have a fire that could spread. and just like we saw monterey that the fire, you know, put 1000 acres down and one nights over we're taking jurors. >> and again, be on the lookout. be careful because the winds will last through tomorrow morning. so there's a burn ban in marin county. also the fire department is asking you to avoid certain areas like the mount tam watershed, at least until later this week. and it's not just the north bay, either. the south bay, san jose. >> dealt with some pretty strong winds to fact strong enough to bring down this tree branch. that is a giant tree branch to see how it came down over a we'll sidewalk their last sales park yesterday afternoon. turns out there a couple kids that were on that sidewalk playing with that branch came down. so firefighters rush them to the hospital and we're happy to
8:03 am
report that they only have minor injuries so they should be okay. but just another example of some of the dangers that are that are there when the winds really pick up. >> it's 8, 0, 2, and a big story in the east bay. health officials in alameda county say the worst of the omicron surge is behind let's hope that continues to be the case. crawford's camila barco live with the update here. >> on the alameda county. good morning. camila. >> good morning, daryn. fancy alameda county's health officer says that people in allen, the county, maybe past the peak of the omicron but that means that still means that people in alameda are not out of the woods yet. according to the health officer, nicholas masi says that case rates and hospitalizations are falling. he says katie case rates are going down more slowly than me went up in alameda county on january the county saw its peak of daily covid cases. it was at 266 and it dropped to
8:04 am
one 46 by the end of the month on january. 25th know that's a good sign says that case rates are still high. more than 400 people are in the hospital with covid in about 74 people are in the icu. the county's dash 4 shows that case rates hospitalizations and intensive care cases all beat in january. but with case rates dropping law says that people might see covid restrictions ease like indoor masking. however, he says that face coverings are still going to continue to be important, especially when you're sick. and health experts continue to push for people to get the vaccine because they say that's the best tool to protect yourself against covid. law says alameda county has not seen its health care system overwhelmed like other places where there's a lower vaccination rates. the population 81.4% of the population in alameda county is vaccinated. now. and daryn,
8:05 am
james ma says that life probably like probably won't ever returned the way it was before the pandemic. but he says that we are getting closer to a living. what we've been calling new normal. so maybe we might see less mass. we know that's been happening in san francisco. maybe that might happen in alameda county soon. we'll just have to see. back to you guys. all right. nice to see you, camila. thanks a lot for that report. >> well, speaking of masks and testing, it is going to be a little bit easier to get a free covid pcr test in san mateo county. the counties actually partnered with carbon health to make about 2000 free tests available each and every day out at the san mateo event center. and it's a walk-up clinic to see. you don't have to make an appointment. they're open tuesdays through sundays from 8 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon. and the results from these tests actually come back to within 48 hours. so it's fairly fast. >> pfizer has officially requested the fda granted
8:06 am
emergency authorization use for its covid vaccine for children under the age of 5, which are the only ones who can get vaccinated. now, that's 19 million children that applies to across the u.s. federal regulators are expected to take a look at the data and they could approve pfizer's 2 dose vaccine for the littlest kids by the end of this month, early data suggest 2 doses is safe and produces an immune response. but also the company is testing a 3 dose regimen as well. >> i think we need to be thinking about these vaccinations kind of going forward in general is a three-dose series said obviously the 2 dose did, you know, was insufficient against the omicron variant. the company hasn't released any safety concerns with his 3 doses so far in the little is kids. >> data from the cdc shows that in that age group, hospitalization rates are increasing nationwide. >> well, speaking of vaccines, there could soon be a new one available here in the u.s. this one from drugmaker
8:07 am
novavax. they're asking the fda right now for emergency use authorization for their protein based vaccine. this is new. they've done clinical trials. they say the results are pretty good. about 91st 90% effective and it's made by using small laboratory built pieces of the coronavirus, which is kind of a more traditional approach to developing a vaccine. and because this is a protein based approach, it can help people who currently can't use the mrna shots. so they be eligible for this new one. the vaccine is administered as a 2 dose regimen 3 weeks apart. and if the fda gives novavam the green light, the company says they could actually have about 100 million doses. ready to go immediately. all right. switching gears to other breaking news from overnight. a san jose man is expected to survive after being stabbed. it happened on the west santa clara street area last night with police saying the victim have life threatening injuries when they found him. so the russian to the hospital. so far, no arrests been made. but we're keeping you updated on the story as more information comes in. and in the south bay
8:08 am
as well. san jose has 7 pedestrian deaths so far this year. and we're only now just starting the month of february is not more. you know, they want to see the at kron four's will tran has been breaking down the numbers for us and what police are saying about it will will at its current pace. the city of san jose, the police department, not only will they match. >> last year's traffic fatalities. they will shatter that number. we're talking 60 for 2021. and so far this year, we're talking 10 traffic fatalities. 7 of them involved pedestrians. and the latest one actually was one and a half miles from this location here it was at new hall and the about 4.40, in the morning. this was back on january 23rd when a man was in the crosswalk at the time looks like a service vehicle comes along hits. this man stops momentarily, but keeps going. so they are still searching for that driver this morning. he would ultimately
8:09 am
died from his injuries on january. 28. so they are still investigating that. they're also investigating other fatalities. most of them have happened to homeless. they're not victim shaming at this time are blaming them. this was the fact that they are talking about and oftentimes the victims. >> happened outside the crosswalk. now at this current pace, they are telling people that they have to do measures, including maybe possibly better lighting, maybe brighter crosswalks. but in the meantime, the first line of defense they are saying will be the drivers. here's the san jose police department talking about things that are possibly on the table to make this city safer for pedestrians. >> way ahead of the pace in terms of traffic fatalities for this time last year, i believe one word to april when we have this many traffic fatalities, one pedestrian death in our city is one too many. and we're at 7 for the month of january. a lot of
8:10 am
variables in this equation, how we're going to fix this. we're talking, you know, the department of transportation. different things that we can do to kind of mitigate what's been happening. lee? >> the >> just to give you perspective. so we're sitting at 10 and this is february second. they did not hit the number 10 as far as traffic fatalities until the month of april. just to give you a pace of how far they are compared to last year. and of course, they want people to slow down because some cases speed is a factor. but in other cases is just simple as it's in the overnight hours and it is dark now that you can see the sun is up visibility is better. but often times it is dark and maybe drivers are in a hurry. the investigation is continuing as far as the driver involved in that hit and run back on january. 23rd. the man's name not being released at this back to all right. thank you very much. well,
8:11 am
