republican members of the senate judiciary committee which oversee the supreme court. justice nomination hearings so we'll have to wait and see how this impacts those proceedings reporting live the newsroom. dan thorn kron 4 news. thank you dan well when it comes to the coronavirus president trump is in a high-risk group and has several factors which can contribute to more severe symptoms the president is 74 years old he's considered clinically obese. according to the cdc people in the 65 to 74 year-old. >>age range face of 5 times greater risk of hospitalization 90 times greater risk of death from covid-19 that's compared to young adults between the ages of 1829. >>joining us now to talk more about covid-19 and developments involving the president's diagnosis lora haggard the more infectious prevention specialist at miranda health medical center and thank you for being with us tonight we've been hearing throughout the day a growing list of people who are various events at the white house and surrounding white house events
8:04 pm
>>are are contracting a coronavirus a yet today chief of staff was seen walking the grounds of the white house without a mask, what kind of concerns does this raise for you as an infectious disease prevention specialist. >>yeah, thank you and thanks for having me really you know does highlight you know the concern and the importance of prevention. here so as we know masking is very it's always important to wear a mask, whenever you're within 6 feet of people who are not in your household. >>we understand that during the presidential debate last week between president trump and former vice president joe biden they were i believe at least 7 feet apart, and that in the next the debate commission has asked that they be 12 feet apart, but the trump campaign is pushing back
8:05 pm
on that as we move forward with do you think the debates should change so that there is lower risk of infection and also speaking of those to base the trump family that showed up arrived in masks and then took the mass often members of staff, the staff came over to bring them asked to put them on they declined to wear them. so do you think those kinds of changes should happen at the next debates. >>and then anything on at least 6 feet apart is is fine, you know is considering but i mean you're right. it is people are not always wearing their masks when they are within people who 6 p to people who are not in their household. so when you heard the news like mention meant i'm sorry go ahead. i was going to say like you mentioned the people who the other people are not wearing masks and they they probably so when have a hard when you heard the about the president's diagnosis of the coming in last night what was
8:06 pm
your first reaction someone who works in this field. >>definitely you know as you mentioned he definitely has risk factors. >>so we'll have to we're going to see what happens what are the next steps for him. >>as an infectious disease control specialists i imagine you've had a kind an up and down battle trying to convince some people that they should wear masks when you have the president who's kind of downplaying it or belittling his political opponents to wear masks. and a white house has made optional you don't have to wear a mask of your staff member at the white house now that he has tested positive and other people at the white house. our positive does that change anything for you do you think in trying to convince people that it real y is a good idea to wear a mask. >>you know i hope it does you know i hope this highlights the importance of mask-wearing for people. yeah. >>there's been some discussion that the white house in light of the cases that we keep
8:07 pm
hearing about hour after hour was kind of a petri dish for. covid-19 and that of course now the whole issue is it's important to do contact tracing can you talk about that importance. >>obviously you know i i'm not doing the contact tracing specific day the white house and for those we focus my job focus on of the hospital where i work specifically but what they're going to be doing in this case is there going to be first and calling and notifying people who are within 6 feet. the president for longer than 15 minutes where one or both of them were not wearing a so that's the definition of exposure. and so that's what they're going to be looking at first. laura in people will definitely be recommended for testing. >>all right laura haggerty more infectious prevention specialist or in-house thank
8:08 pm
you for your time we appreciate it. >>yeah thank you. president trump's positive covid-19 tests and current health condition is raising some questions about what happens if he becomes too ill to carry out his duties or even city pass from force also on money and is live in our newsroom was what legal experts are saying about this issue which is very controversial l a. >>yeah, course, ken and pam in the event that the president's health become seriously in danger. >>and he is not able to perform the duties of office, the 25th amendment to the constitution dictates that the vice president is at the top of a long list of cabinet members who would be the first in line to take the reins. >>the vice president and a majority of the cabinet can the president incapacitated it can take over the duties of the president in the hands of the vice president. now there's a process then with the president go to congress for the president to override that. i think all of that is very unlikely. i think that if president trump can do the
8:09 pm
job. he's going to continue as president when he can't safe god forbid something happens where he's not able to perform vice president will take over. >>so second in line is the speaker of the house followed by 16 others, the transfer of power is not automatic unless the president dies resigns or is removed from office and in terms of the election you see hastings law professor worry little tells us that many people have already voted but given that we are just a few weeks away it is important to note. the vice president mike pence wouldn't automatically fill the candidacy he would have to be selected by the republican party live in the newsroom. ella sogomonian kron 4 news. thank you a lot tonight we do know that vice president mike pence has tested negative for coronavirus last night he reacted to president trump testing positive tweeting this. >>karen and i send our love and prayers to our dear friends, president donald trump and melania we join millions across america praying for their full and

experience with covid-19 changed his view of the virus. still you think this is likely to change the president's perspective, i would certainly hope so i know humility may not be his strongest asset that will change one way or another. >>i think it will make you a better person as long as he gets intervention that that he demands and people will pray that someday. >>state democrats including the governor were mostly quiet on this topic today president trump's family members are expressing their support for the president on social media tonight, the president's son eric tweeted donald trump is a true warrior he will fight through this with the same strength and conviction that he uses to fight for america each and every day. i ask you to join me in praying for his recovery. i have never been more proud of someone and what they have had to endure similar sentiments sentiment from the president's daughter ivanka trump she tweeted you are a warrior and will beat this. and our breaking news coverage on the president's hospitalization will continue this we're going to show you a live picture here it is in

8:31 pm
this afternoon wearing a mask walking and giving a thumbs up on the south lawn before he boarded marine one the helicopter to take him to the hospital. >>in a video statement he said he thinks he's doing very well joining us live from washington tonight is our dc correspondent jessi to nor jesse thank you for being with us of course within the last hour or so kellyanne conway acknowledging that she now has been diagnosed as well with covid-19 what's the latest that you're hearing coming out of the white house. >>conway's announcement marks at least the 6th person who was at the white house's rose garden this past weekend for the nomination ceremony for judge amy coney barrett. and so that's really now being looked at as a potential super spreader event and so we haven't heard much from the white house this evening specifically on but as far as the president stay in walter reed, there there's really trying to be this you know pictures to the american people that president trump
8:32 pm
isn't in a hospital bed hooked up to a bunch of machines are ivy's or anything of that nature. they're really saying that this is the presidential suite he's doing this as a precautionary measure, there's even an office for the chief of staff, there are sleeping arrangements there for the white house physician and even though you can look at the way that his symptoms have been reported over the day and seen that they've progress from you know just maybe fatigued to that fever to now being in the hospital for a few days. the white house is still trying to maintain his image of strength president trump himself like you said with a thumbs up is trying to do that as well to show that he's at least trying to continue business as usual as much as possible jesse, i know you've been to the white house you cover the white house mingled with white house staff and other reporters there understand 3 white house reporters have now tested. >>positive in addition to the 6 or so people at the white house itself work there. and i'm just wondering if they're if you've noticed any kind of
8:33 pm
a change in attitude toward masks and all of that because that has been unfairly loose policy even today we saw mark meadows come out without wearing a mask while giving updates. at the white house. >>yeah even just watching video from the meadows gaggle to president trump leaving on marine one today, you did see a change even then when meadows like you said wasn't wearing a mask and still kind of maintain that he didn't need to do when he was asked about it saying that he was you know the proper 6 feet away he was outside. and then later on when president trump was walking to marine one to go to walter reed you saw the entire lot of them were wearing masks and like you said that's very different than what we typically see. even walking around the grounds no one's really wearing a mask even. some other photographers journalist things of that nature just because a lot of it is outside when you can be on the driveway and things of that nature, but you know when you are inside it's definitely a loser policy then you see in
8:34 pm
other areas. >>what is the feeling when you talk with other reporting reporters who have been covering the white house have been exposed or been in the area where these events have been going on what are the what are the reporter saying. >>i think there is just kind of this general unease where you know you go into this wanting to protect yourself as best as possible. >>but even the most extensive of measures we've seen. >>don't necessarily protect you from covid-19 and so not just reporters but even members of the secret service things of that that nature just saying that you know even even though they do all they can do for themselves to protect themselves if there's not people around them following the same measures that have been put out there by the top health experts in the country then there's not much you can do and so there there has been a lot of unease and now there's some hope that may be going forward a lot of these precautions will be followed more extensively.
8:35 pm
>>jesse reporting live for us from washington dc we'll be checking back with you later on this evening as we continue our coverage, thanks for your other thoughts in your perspective from washington. we appreciate it. >>and now we want to talk to our kron 4 political analysts summed up the and michael yaki join us now start with you tom a kind of following up on what we just heard from jesse turn or in washington. do you think there's going to be a little bit of a change in attitude at the white house on the seriousness of covid-19 and how relating to cdc guidelines said before they kind of brushed aside. >>keep in mind this administration's now spent 5 trillion dollars along with the federal reserve on. anything from masks to testing to vaccines and on and on i do think that you will see change certainly throughout the rest
8:36 pm
of this year and into next year. among the participants i think this is going to land a tracing back to the scene that we're showing now on tv and there were a number of people there and probably into close quarters and i think you will see changes coming forward. >>we're going to get to michael in just a moment, you have said that you have been taking yourself to prevent your seen either one of you in person since march right that's right because of what know that and we miss both of you as well. >>i am curious though you know a lot of the people who are now infected we've seen at the debate where the family walked in with mask and then took those masks off today, the white house chief of staff spoke to reporters walked out on the lawn, the white house lawn, no masks. what's going on here why are they so reticent against wearing a mask when their own cdc
8:37 pm
officials are saying this is what's best to do and even you are doing the precautions that the cdc recommends. >>yeah i just went out with the masks not that not that long ago. >>you know, maybe they're a little bit hubris. it's all the way into what october now and they had been going on and on for months on end. i'm not it's not clear that he these people got infected because they don't lack a mass, but i think it back to cannes there got there's kind of the changes because this is now affecting everybody in and around the white house i actually think you can see less people at the white house as well. >>michael yaki year you're plugged into the machine and you're have connections there in washington dc as well, i'm just curious. your thoughts about the joe biden campaign there's been some concern the former vice president perhaps
8:38 pm
was at risk when he was at the debate there are many family members there from the trump family that did not want to wear masks, even though they were asked to and they declined. and now we've had people who were at that debate who have ended up testing positive is there any concern about what happens with the former vice president moving forward and what's going to happen at the next debate. >>i'm absolutely sure that there's i mean you got tested today. he said he got tested twice which leads me to believe that he got both the rapid and then the pcr test which goes into the whole transparency i think that you're going to see. joe biden be transparent about how many times that he has tested over the next few days because this is something we're depending on the explosion incubation to be 2 to 14 days. and the amount virus that can actually manifest is something we tested can take some time as well. i think there's some concern but until something manifests itself. i think they will be cautious and certainly their campaign as always practice what they preach. you
8:39 pm
see pictures of joe biden with a mask on all the even at the convention, he wore a mask at some of the impromptu events and on the train as he's doing the whistle stop tour that he's doing you can see him talking to people in second entire row of seats between them and the next person and they're both wearing masks so i mean he's this is something where he's going to continue practicing what he preaches. >>my call i'm curious what you think the political fallout may or may not be in terms of how the public now response to the fact that the president who had then calling this a hoax mott's joe biden at the debate for wearing a mask as often as he does is there a political price to pay. >>i think there 2 things one you saw joe biden's response today was one of compassion which i think is part of the key to his appeal. in this election. but secondly, this takes the focus back to the pandemic. president trump had been trying for the past 2 months ago or more to turn the
8:40 pm
election back on ballots on looting and riots on anything but the pandemic this puts it squarely back on there's no escaping and now for the for the immediate future and probably for the next 32 days until election day. so this is not worth. the trump campaign would have wanted by any stretch of imagination. of course the president when i wanted to catch this man even but read the timing of this is something that is not advantageous to the trump campaign because it goes back to the whole issue. credibility and leadership with regard to the pandemic. >>michael yaki tom del beccaro gentlemen thank you very much for your time get talking to you. more tonight as we continue and news continues to break on this ongoing story, thanks again. the president just tweeted about 10 minutes ago. we want to show you this the first time we've seen this. he says going well i think thank you to all love so take that for what you will and we also have work from the

>>and now her 4 zone forecast as we look forward to the weekend on a friday night in a very foggy golden gate bridge pan am very foggy and very
8:44 pm
likely some smoke having a lot to do with this picture we're looking at right now let's check in with lawrence to see what's going on more yeah guys that is a great sight to see the sea all that fog surging to the golden gate bridge in this in streaks that was just checking out the very latest on the air quality conditions all of a sudden it's got a lot better in fact it just switched in the san francisco to moderate amounts of pollutants and that's because we're starting to see a bit of a sea breeze, it is now good in towards sam, a tale one good spot. in the entire bay area. but of course we had all that smoke, settling in throughout the day today. that's because we had that northerly component to the wind our get a little westerly and that's going to change everything tomorrow still there's probably going to be lot of smoke in the morning. so certainly think early on so watch out for that, but i think by the afternoon. a significant west wind is going to pick up we're going to see some very good air quality late in the day along the coastline inside the bay and probably in the make its way into the east bay too so looks like some improving conditions as far as air quality and the weather is concerned it looks
8:45 pm
like this ridge finally after a week beginning to break down and brought some record breaking temperatures. this latest the wave. and of course the high fire danger to but now that ridge is starting to shift a little further to the east and south that's going allow more of a sea breeze to develop out side that will help to cool down the temperatures and reduce the fire danger around the bay area at least in most spots are so they have to deal with that issue of glass fire continue to burn a some winds are going to switch around there temperatures tomorrow still some 80's and 90's inland, you see 70's 80's around much of the bay, some 90's in the santa clara valley, but as we look toward the next few days and a batch of cool air going to move in from the ocean as we head in towards sunday that will drop the temperatures and then as we head toward late next week partly cloudy skies highs only in the 70's. thank you lawrence coming up next in sports forty-niners announced today who's going to start son who's going to sit out this sunday's game against eagl
