5:03 am
covering world. what we know about this case camilla. >> well, the first person who has been infected with omicron the omicron variant in the country is a san francisco man. now he has some mild symptoms right now and is self isolating. but take a look at your screen we're giving you a timeline of how the health department was able to determine this case. now officials say the man flew into sfo on november 22nd after a trip to south africa. 6 days later he developed covid symptoms and got tested on monday. his results came back positive. that sample was then brought to a ucsf lab for rapid sequencing and then yesterday the cdc confirmed the sample is on the kron now on the kron is a new coronavirus variant that was first detected in south africa. scientists say it is a virus that spreads quickly and the first omicron patient that san francisco man like i said, is self isolating and city officials say the man did the right thing and got tested quickly and they are confident
5:04 am
the city as well. position to handle covid and its variants. >> san francisco is relatively well positioned to respond to variance our vaccine may is high. more boosters are going to arms every day. 5 to 11 year-olds are getting vaccinated. the rapid uptake. our masking and vaccine requirements are among some of the most stringent in the country. >> experts say the vaccine likely saved the man from suffering a far worse illness. health officials are conducting contract tracing so far. none of the man's contacts have tested positive now san francisco's public health director doctor grant colfax says the city's vaccination rate is high. it's at 81%. and he says because of this there will be no new restrictions coming to san francisco and that message has been echoed by governor gavin newsome. darya james will hear from him in the next half hour. for now, back to you,
5:05 am
ok. thank you very much. camila now let's move on to what we're going to do about it here in the country and in the bay labs in the bay area are working to see. >> you know, would identify where the omicron variant is who has it so far. no more cases and then health officials in sonoma county say the vaccine and the booster shots of the best way to protect yourself. >> certainly have seen increased demand for boosters, which is great because we do want to ensure that people do get their boosters data does seem to show that the boosters not only increase and ensure that that anybody level is consistent. but it was just seems to also activate different arms of the immune system which is helpful in counteracting any variant. we've seen that with delta and presumably that would be the case. but on run. >> nother county health officers say that they are doubling their efforts to examine the positive cases and identify which strain it is so far. county say they're not taking any additional steps or
5:06 am
making changes at this point to any covid restrictions. >> well, happening today on this front we have president biden now planning to lay out his plan to fight the omicron variant this winter. and the reason that we're showing sfo is because they are going to be including new rules for international travelers. kron four's will tran is live at the airport this morning with more. hi will. >> what they going to do. the white house. they will tighten the restrictions. so they can buy themselves. time to fight the latest variant. so what's going to happen is we told you for the past year or so. coming into the united states when when they start opening up the borders that you had to be tested negative 3 days out of your flight. what's going to happen is he's going to shut that down too 24 hours. so you have to make sure that you are negative one day before your flight before hopping. on to your plate into the united states. also before the omicron variant he was
5:07 am
going to let the mask mandate to expire in january. but he's going to extend that now all the way through march 18th, meaning you have to mask up even on domestic flights. he wants to pump up the efforts to fight covid-19 and all the variants that follow with it. here's what you need to know. he promises the way it looks right now. there will be no shutdown of the economy. >> we're learning more every single day and we'll fight this variant was science and speed, not chaos and confusion. >> happen is he wants to pump up booster shots for americans. he says a 60% of americans already fully vaccinated. he wants to provide more free home testing kits. he's going to keep the schools open. obviously everything is very fluid. but the way things are. they want to give the world health organization and american
5:08 am
doctors. time to research this variant to see how quickly it spreads. is it easy to spread and how sick people will get. so the bottom line, james and already he's doing all of this to buy the health experts time to attack the covid variant. and again, it's all but a done deal. i know he's going to announce it a little bit later today. but it's all but a done deal. you will have to test negative one day before coming into united states, not to mention the restrictions that he's already put in place for countries like south africa. back to you. >> all right. thanks a lot. we'll well, as stephanie was also one of 4 major airports expanding testing as part of the cdc program airport spokesperson doug yakel says that voluntary testing is or was focused primarily on travelers from india because of the delta variant. but that, of course, has now changed. >> in response to the omicron variant the cdc expanded the scope of the pilot test program at sfo to now include travelers arriving from south africa, germany, france and the uk really the countries
5:09 am
where this omicron variant is known to be spreading. >> so the testing is voluntary. they can be done through a test at the airport or passengers can take a test kit home. says there's been no modifications made to air travel at sfo following the announcement of the new omicron variant. we'll see if that changes after the president's announcement today. meanwhile, health officials in san mateo county say that the demand for booster shots is on the rise. the demand is so high that you'll now need to make an appointment. if you want to get that shot at one of the county's vaccine clinics all walk-ups will be turned away from the senate hail event center on saratoga drive with officials saying that boosters are also available at community clinics, health care providers and pharmacies, many of which do not require an appointment. so maybe a better luck there. >> the news is in from the a's. >> i don't know if you heard our be the bear but is bad for a's fans. the teen is a step closer to leave in. according to cnbc, the a's are looking at a site to develop the
5:10 am
tropicana hotel as a possible location in las vegas. our new stadium, they still have to put together a plan on how they're gonna pay for it. because what i heard was the plan a look at like a billion dollars stadium so far, though, none of this is getting comments from the a's. we know that the a's owner has already made several trips to vegas. and now these reports there are at least a couple of sites, one right on the vegas strip. another was like a golf course. i think so. there's all kinds of word out there already that this is actually a reality in the works. we'll keep you posted. sorry. breaking news from overnight. major league baseball. is it a lockout now the previous agreement between the owners and players union expired overnight and they haven't reached a deal. so what this means is that team officials and players cannot communicate in any way and that includes free agent deals and trades. those are all suspended right now because there's this
5:11 am

5:58 am
including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪
