5:07 am
bad of a surge will see the biggest problem area in our state of course is los angeles where cases continue to surge out of control and icu bed capacity remains at 0%. but the biggest goal for hospitals at like ucsf is to vaccinate everyone all their health care workers. those who want to get the vaccination it's been slower of a roll out across our country than expected. but they say here at ucsf they're doing okay, they said that they have about 5.59% of the first group. >>that's an aide with the first shot in the arm and they have the second shot in the arm planned, but nobody has the second shot in the arm quite yet so that will definitely help but stay tuned, we'll keep an eye on these numbers new year's eve new year's surge will happen in doubt what a week week and a half from now daryn james is going to be interesting to see. another surge was have to brace ourselves 2021 home, scary absolutely, thanks very much. sara scary is what it is 5 '07 in the east bay there nearly 90 active covid cases.
