directly into the testicle, but it can cause inflammation, a lot of sperm cells to die within the testicle. >> reporter: in one study, men who were previously fertile and had lots of kids, nearly 40% had low sperm counts. in addition, more than 60% had increased white blood cell counts in their semen, a sign of inflammation. it may also impact the quality of a man's testosterone. >> it's another reason people should be careful about coronavirus. >> it's very surprising, because i didn't know it could affect the men birth moves, you know what i mean? >> makes me not want to get vi to frolic, the reaction -- >> how else are we going to make
babies, you know, without the male donations? >> it's quite contagious out there. just have to be safe. >> reporter: there are other viral threats to male fertility, including hiv, zika, ebola and mumps. when it comes to covid, as to how long the problem may persist, no one knows. it could be months. it could be longer. >> this is too new of a problem for us to give definitive answers. >> it adds a level of stress. >> reporter: mary and tom have this advice -- keep in good health and get vaccinated when you're eligible. >> we are so extremely excited to get vaccinated. >> we're going to jump at the opportunity. >> reporter: in the meantime, fertility experts say wear a mask. in alameda county, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. >> as for the covid vaccines now available, the american society of reproductive medicine supports the use of all these vaccines in all eligible individuals. some california tesla owners are dealing with a big shock.

translated to mean together we love and help each other or i care about you. in different asian languages. >> growing up, san francisco local here, i grew up with a lot of asian communities and asian friends, but i think part of it is to unite with others who don't look exactly like me. >> reporter: the asian art museum is also making 5 bold statement on its website. when the pandemic kept the museum closed, it also showcased new artwork by asian american female artists on its facade. >> despite these artists who have a very loud voice and we're doing our best to amplify them, but i feel like we're not loud enough. and we need -- we need journalists, we need our critic, we need supporters, we need audience all help us. >> reporter: the museum is planning to launch a series of events to address aapi violence

the bay. warm weather sticks around through thursday, and then a big cooldown as we head into easter weekend. let's talk about the wind first. nearly calm wind out there right now, but we are going to see stronger gusts as we head into early tomorrow morning. but the strongest gusts are the he cities are.vation as opposed after the wind advisory expires, which seems odd, but it's because we get 50 plus mile an hour gusts on top of peaks tonight and stronger winds for everybody mixing down to the lower elevations throughout the day tomorrow. they should die down once the sun goes down tomorrow evening. not all that windy by bay area standards, but a noticeable breeze throughout the day. but an offshore breeze, which is going to send pollen across the region. in the high category through the end of the workweek. temperatures right now in the mid to upper 50s and low 60s in livermore. you're outlier on the warm side, down to 50 degrees in santa rosa.
temperatures will back down to the 40s by early tomorrow morning. 50 degrees around the bay. and then a nice warm-up in store. now, it's not going to be so warm that your dogs are going to melt like this one here. just an optical illusion. that's an a plus dog name. thank you for sharing that picture. low 70s tomorrow afternoon. that's common around the bay. temperatures topping out in the low to mid-70s. a few spots upper 70s, closer to 80 degrees farther inland. some spots into the low 80s and mid to upper 60s along the coast. warmest days will be wednesday and thursday. then we cool off friday. a chance for some rain showers easter sunday into monday. it's only a 30% chance, but we'll keep an eye on it. great weather for a's season opener thursday evening. dennis? when the giants come to town. who broke the news to jimmy g. that he's not the long-term answer for the 49ers? and can steph
dennis is here now with sports, and the warriors got their star back tonight, and what a difference? >> think elizabeth, get your best player back on the cut chicago tonight. curry missing the last five games with a bruised tailbone. scott leading an all-female crew for the radio broadcast. first quarter against the bulls, curry is back. back big but clearly still in pain. he still scored 18 in the first half. but how about draymond? beats the shot clock, yes. draymond hit three trays tonight. warriors pulled away in the second half. steph had 30 through three corners, finished with 32. warriors won 116-102 to snap their losing streak. to the tournament, those oregon state beavers trying to get to the final four. beavs came from 17 down against
houston and tied the game. the bank is open. 17-3 run, game's tied. cougars answered back with less than four minutes to go. quentin grimes long ball for the lead. that ended up being the dagger. houston heads to their first final four since 1984. they do it by beating nothing but double dict teams. long night for former warrior coach eric muscleman, his razorbacks got killed. matisse dropping two late threes to ice the game. how about a little show time to celebrate baylor's first final four run since the truman administration. and all it takes is back side of the basket. baylor and houston play each other saturday. for months, the 49ers have been backing jimmy garoppolo, he's our guy, perhaps for the short term, not for the long haul. general manager john lynch and kyle shanahan addressed the huge
trade with the dolphins that got them the third pick in april's draft. yes, they will take a quarterback, but also jimmy garoppolo will likely be on the roster when the season kicks off in the fall. shanahan said he broke the news to jimmy garoppolo. >> i'm sure jimmy was a little ticked off from it, just like i would be too, but knowing jimmy, he'll be fired up and he'll work his butt off. and knowing jimmy, the more mad jimmy gets, usually the better he gets. so jimmy just gets madder and stays healthy, this is going to be a good thing for jimmy too, which could be a great problem for the 49ers. . to the ice. marlowe passing to messier for second on the nfl all-time games played list. carlson from just inside the blue line. the game is tied. minnesota would later tie it. game went to a shootout.
