5:04 pm
receiving the medicine, he says. the goal is to get 15,000 starting with those 75 years of age and older. getting the vaccine into the arms of their seniors in this community will go a long way in preventing further deaths. one year ago, this county saw the bay area. first coronavirus case soon thereafter the nation's first death. i did not expect it to last this long when we first learned about it. obviously the disease has evolved. there was a lot that we didn't know. and so the knowledge has has changed a bit, officials say. there's now a concerted effort to vaccinate high infection rate areas such as east san jose so far, 450 people there have received the first dose of the vaccine, but there are efforts to ramp up that effort. you know, we have a lot of keep on our community who are a little afraid of the vaccine doesn't character a san francisco 49ers, a stanford cardinal? the spark a new public service announcement pulling in the resource is and
5:05 pm
voices of professional athletes is being used to calm nerves and increase vaccination rates. supervisor cindy chavez partnered with the sports authority on the p ece that we would be showing a united front that we're all as a community. fighting covid and the one of the best ways to do that is to get vaccinated, officials say upwards of 80% of the populist needs to be vaccinated before herd immunity is reached. they say they have the infrastructure but are waiting on the federal and state governments to supply the vaccine. we've had immunity than the disease stops to spread in the society, and that's what we want. if we don't get the vaccine is going to take us longer, and people are gonna have to wait longer. however officials say they expect other drugmakers to start the production and distribution of the code. with 19 vaccine that, coupled with president joe biden, saying he's going to increase u. s distribution to 10 million doses beginning next week. well they believe that will help ease any supply anxieties in san jose jesse gary ktvu, fox two news. 100 mass vaccination
5:06 pm
sites are expected to set up around the country. they're part of the plan that the president's plan laid out in his first day in office to ramp up vaccinations now earlier on the four we spoke with former fema coordinator mark tamayo. he says the vaccination sites would be run through a partnership with the federal emergency management agency. what's taking place? it's a partnership with health and human services. cdc national into institutes of health army corps of engineers and particularly the department of defense, being able to bring about 10 to 20 30,000 of those nurses and doctors to come help out. the vote, says those agencies hope to eventually give out 450,000 vaccines a day. another couple covid vaccines appear to be ready to help get people vaccinated. today. johnson and johnson released data on it's a single dose vaccine. overall it appears to be 66% effective at preventing
5:07 pm
moderate illnesses and 85% effective at preventing the most serious symptoms like hospitalizations. this vaccine could be key in the first against coronavirus because it is. single dose and doesn't need to be kept it super cold conditions. noble vax also released a new vaccine. their data says that they conducted a trial with more than 15,000. participants in the uk, the company says the vaccine demonstrated an 89% efficacy and a face the retrial that puts it in the same league as the madonna and fizer vaccines, the state says more than three million coronavirus cases have been administered out of 4.7 million ships. across the country close to 29 million shots have been given out. according to bloomberg. the u. s averaged about 1.3 million shots per day in the last week, and joining us now is dr lee riley, a professor of infectious diseases and vaccine ology. uc berkeley. dr ali thank you so much for joining us. let's begin with the effect
5:08 pm
of this off that johnson and johnson vaccine their vaccine 66% effective. so how do you square that with the two other vaccines that more than 90% effective? right. so you know it's not as good as the other vaccines that we that's hillary been approved, but you know, fda was saying that they'll approve any vaccine that's better than 50% effective. and so, johnson johnson vaccine meets that goal. um so the overall effect is that you said it's 66% but the when the vaccine was evaluated the u. s. was actually about 72% effective and it's also about 85% effective against severe disease. now. one caveat is that and when they tested this in south africa, it was about 57% effective and as you know, south south africa's experience this epidemic of this new variant, and so there's a suggestion that this johnson johnson vaccine may not be as effective. with this new
5:09 pm
variant kind enough that's spreading in south africa. that brings up of interesting point here because if that berrien was able to get hold in other parts of the world would that that would put this vaccine pretty much on the sidelines would also affect the other vaccines that are on the market as well. that's certainly a possibility they don't know. the good news is that a z? i was mentioned the this vaccine only requires one dose and then the technology behind the. fell upon. this vaccine has been in existence on johnson johnson for a long time so they should be able to relatively quickly switch the vaccine formulation in such a way that they can then address the new variant as well. that also goes with marin, a vaccines modern and theo the biotech divisor vaccine as well. so going on the assumption that that the normal coronavirus what we're seeing right now is
5:10 pm
the one that we have to deal with, and we have the single shot available through johnson and johnson that could possibly be approved. how does that affect the rollout in getting this in the more arms? yes oh, this is gonna be a real game changer, you know, now don't have to worry about the second goal. this could be producing mass quantities and just has to be administered once and that other major advantage of this vaccine is that it can be kept in a regular refrigerator for up to three months, so we don't need these deep freezers in deep freezer facilities that's required for the size of vaccine. and what does he do you think it's going to be more easily administered to apologize for that? one of the more interesting things i thought i read about this today is the fact that this johnson and johnson vaccine they say, it's really effective and keeping you out of the hospital. and really preventing keeping mortality rate down as well. what can you tell us about how effective the vaccine is against those two issues? yes oh, so that's the other advantage of this vaccine was single dose. you know, if you think about it with after a
5:11 pm
single dose of the modern era and defies of accent, there's only about around 57% effective. this is ah, vaccines given in one dose, and it's already up to 72% effective and in the u. s. and so, uh, i think it xena has major advantages that i think it's gonna be easier to administer. and so you know, it is that i would consider this to be a very good news doctor rollie as an infectious disease expert here. what are you gonna be watching? um, when this vaccine possibly is approved? what kind of the issues that you're gonna be watching out for here? well of course, you know, as with any vaccine, we need to be watching out for potential side effects. and as you heard with the r. nave actually is a part of these rare cases of severe nfl toxic allergic reaction. well to see if you know a similar sort of sight of excellent joker so far in the clinical trials, they have not seen any major side effects. so we'll see. certainly good news. dr lee
5:12 pm
rally professor of infectious diseases at uc berkeley. thank you so much for your insight this evening. thank you. coaches and student athletes from around the bay area joined forces hoping to convince the governor to allow them to play sports. well, they are essential workers that have a much higher rate of covid infection. and now state politicians say they should be vaccinated as a matter of national food, security and 5 to 6 ft. of fresh no not unheard of in lake tahoe, but one california ski resort nearly hit 10 ft this week. yes and as we know, alameda rain fell throughout the bay area, the last few days were drying out temporarily. we do have the opportunity for scattered showers over at least parts of the bay area for the weekend details after the break ♪ ♪ it's the brand new chicken dance song uh ♪ ♪ get down heat it up like a sauna ♪ ♪ spin around one time if you wanna ♪ new chicken dance new chicken sandwich

5:16 pm
by uc berkeley researchers showed a whopping 20% of all farm workers infected. as opposed to 1% of bay area residents. at the same time, dr maximiliano cuevas said clinica de salud del valley day salinas participated in the research at the 10 salinas valley clinics. he works in and manages once they get infected. there's no way you can isolate. our quarantine the individual nonetheless, almost 60% of the infected and sick workers. we're going to work because one there's no sick or quarantine pay. the second big reason was fear of losing the job. state senator melissa her tano, a daughter of agricultural workers, sees this is a matter of national food and economic security. we feed the nation and we feed the world and when you have, you know employees of her getting sick that are dying that are higher risk because of the nature of their work. farm workers need to be prioritized.
5:17 pm
so making sure that we get these vaccines directly. to our ad workers is extremely important. but the vaccination rates of these essential workers is pitifully low. so much so the california retailers association is looking at ways for pharmacies to mobilize and deliver vaccines directly to ag workers wherever they live and work and it's not just. the retail pharmacies. they're our business is up and down the state of california that have been asking that have been beg. you put us to work. we will volunteer. we will bring in resource is we want to help hit the vaccine out, senator and lawyer and a caballero has fought for farm workers her entire life and says they're even put in a lower priority tear than other essential workers. equity to man's fairness up the number of vaccine doses in rural california, which has been a real problem. we're getting much less than we're entitled to buy our population. now, if
5:18 pm
you feel ag workers should receive higher priority. call or email, state legislators and the state department of public health. so these workers can keep supplying all of us with healthy food. tom vacar ktvu fox two news. i think it's great that they can. they can use all the help they can get. and really, they are the definition of essential workers. tom franks. well, snow pounded the sierra this week ski resorts in tao. so about 5 to 6 ft of snow after series of storms and your dodge ridge and mammoth, those areas got more than 100 inches of snow. both highways 80 and 50 year open. still caltrans warns those head into the sierra this weekend to expect delays. the first time in my 60 years that i've been stuck like this, so yeah, it's a new experience. well right now, traffic is heavy between truck and squad valley. caltrans says cleanup efforts

5:34 pm
was being shorted by big hedge funds, some popular online trading sites such as robin hood, restricted trading a gamestop and several other stocks throughout the day. and despite all that, though, gamestop was up 66% today to more than $327 a share as gamestop goes higher as these other should heavily shorted stocks goes go higher as margin calls on those sides get extended. it puts pressure on the rest of the market. well the securities and exchange commission says it is monitoring the situation. and it warned investors that when the bubble bursts, it could expose investors to quote rapid and severe losses. joining us now to talk more about the markets is j. mcbride financial expert with the mcbride group, james. thanks for joining us today. let's be honest, gamestop is a hot stock and, you know, experts predicted that despite its peak this week, it would come down. but that did not happen. it ended the week up 400 per sent, and that's despite the fact that
5:35 pm
some brokerages limited trading. so what is the takeaway here? and what do you think happens next week? well, we're in an environment that is invincible to reason, and what's happening now is insane to make to be polite about it. that casino that makes no sense and just as they were saying earlier is that it's going to come to a bad end because this stock is not. deserve this valuation based on the fundamentals earlier today, i looked at the fundamentals. i looked at income net income earnings per share just kind of all the way down the line, and the numbers are surprisingly negative front to back so to have a stock at these airplay to prices makes no sense and it will come down and a lot of people are going to get hurt. you know, there's a lot of talk about these brokerages that have limited trading. and i'm curious. you know what you think? what would have happened if they didn't limit trading and prevent people from buying? because you just said it yourself. this company shouldn't be valued at
5:36 pm
what it is now. well, the analogy that i would use is if you were a bartender and you were serving somebody that was intoxicated by law, the bartender is liable if that person hurts themselves or somebody else. in other words, you gave alcohol to an intoxicated person and made them even worse, and that's kind of what they're doing by limiting the trading there, quite frankly, saving people from themselves. they're doing it for a lot of, though the reasons because they have restrictions on the amount of money to have the hold in reserve, just because of that's how the markets function, so it's not there not being completely altering. stick about this, but what they're doing as far as the investor is concerned, i think it's the service by not letting him get into this because it is going to come to a bad end. i promise you that i don't know when but it will. yeah, there. there's some argument there on the other side of that coin, just for people who say look, i had the opportunity to buy it and make money here, and i was prevented from doing that. who's to say i should be cut off when i know the risks and i
5:37 pm
willingly accept those risks when i go into the market? well, i've been doing this long enough to know that when things go against people. they forget that they said that ok? i will leave it at that. i'm gonna move on, though to the stocks overall, because today we saw the volatility bring all of the stock's down is what we're seeing with with gamestop and amc really affecting the price of other stocks to go down. it's certainly affecting the psychology of the market, but i think if we look at the underlying strength of the market is pretty good. and as you know that the market tries to do is look ahead 68 months and it's gonna it sees that a 68 months of this pandemic. this terrible pandemic will be behind us. and a lot of the underlying fundamentals of the market look pretty good, particularly with respect to the pandemic because we have hospitalizations are down. icu availability is up. we have three spectacular vaccines in
5:38 pm
the market now, with visor madonna and astrazeneca and then johnson and johnson and noble baxter coming out with more vaccine soon, what's exciting about the johnson and johnson vaccine is that's a one shot ghost. so. from the pandemic side. things are slowly but surely getting better. and it's also fair to say that the stimulus in one form or another will be passed by congress, even if the president requires reconciliation to get it through and that it's important to remember, too, that the economy was very, very good going into this pandemic, and once this pandemic is behind this, probably by this summer that the economy will reset, it will reboot and that will be on our way again. i want to ask about just regular seasoned investors, not the people who have been joining in on the fat stocks this week because the season investor could look at this and say, i see the power of social media and i see how it can drive the markets and drive certain stocks. maybe that makes them concerned and maybe they decide that they don't want to, uh hold onto the
5:39 pm
socks that they have. do you think it it maybe makes him fearful and they want to sell and basically get rid of their holdings. it sure does that underlies people's confidence in the market. when we see such speculation generated by social media, you know ellen must. i think it was today said something nice about bitcoin and you know they went up about 9% a few days ago. iman must said something nice about sd because he had bought something for his dog and the stock went up. social media is powerful, and it does concern people because you're seeing the value of socks being changed just by social media or a text from hell. i'm us and it's important to remember that long term the stock market is going to go up through your lifetime, and it's good to ignore this, but it certainly does cause concern and it does make people uneasy, unfortunately, but that's what it is, and the market's really never had to deal with social media before and we're all
5:40 pm
running our lessons as we go along. yeah, it is a phenomenon that we haven't seen before. that is for sure. james a bride with mcbride group always appreciate you coming on the show. thank you, governor gavin newsom today signed a bill extending the state's eviction moratorium. the existing moratorium was set to expire in just a few days. the extension last or june and also helps cover some unpaid rent with $2.6 billion in federal stimulus money. supporters say the new law aims to help low income families who are struggling to pay rent due to covid-19 hardships as well, a support their landlords. he had, you know, i think there was just one exceptional, unanimous support. democrats and republicans coming together in the senate and the assembly on a big bill. well landlords will be paid up to 80% and unpaid rent dating back as far back as last april as long as they agreed to waive the other 20.
