8:07 pm
occupations just don't have the sort of ability to. segment themselves off like that at all period of time. and so, you know, we just believe that that that's just a step too far. now under this policy, if you're exposed at work and you have to stay home for 14 days. your employer must continue to pay you. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> and right now a kron 4 dot com. you can read about the latest coronavirus headlines just scan the qr code on your screen. you'll be directed to our website. some of the top headlines include data on the omicron variant pfizer's new pill to fight covid and the new statewide indoor mask mandate. it's all on our website. kron 4 dot com. >> right now to the state's drought emergency, as you witness. we've got quite a bit of rain lately and more is on the way. so a lot of people wonder, does that mean the drought is over. well, in fact, is far from for dan thorn. joining us now in the studio with the latest. dan,
8:08 pm
of the game. pam, like you said, still have a little bit ways to go and the concern is right now is what this is going to do to the cost of things right. >> so state officials and lawmakers say that they're concerned that the ongoing drought here in california could start to raise prices across the country. california provides 2 thirds of the nation's fruit and nuts. and a 3rd of its vast doubles, a prolonged drought could mean our state is able to provide last. and that could also contribute to food insecurity which could lead to other health issues. experts said short term solutions could include food and cash aid programs and longer solutions include big infrastructure changes. and of course, the best solution would be for us to not be in a drought. and thanks to some recent rain. the situation does look to be improving these conditions here. what it looked like 3 months ago, way more dark on the red on this map, which means exceptional drought in on the as you can see right here, current conditions. way less dark red but still plenty of red, which means extreme drought. and that also is the stage. but the most of the bay

the committee is now advising americans to choose the moderna or pfizer vaccine over the j and j dosage, the final decision will now come from cdc director rochelle walensky this new recommendation comes after 9 people died after getting the j and j vaccine due to blood clots. so from the latest vaccine recommendation to another emerging variant. the coronavirus is still causing a lot of concern and raising a lot of questions. all right. so here to discuss all the latest developments is ucsf infectious disease doctor peter chin. hong friend of the program. help us sort through some of this stuff. you know, and i don't make it mean to make light of this. but but it's it's as though this this is like a wiley coyote of viruses. this covid-19. it's morphing its you know, every time we think we have something figured out. it seems to be 10 steps ahead. >> a bikie. it definitely seems like a marvel movie with
8:33 pm
a different every few months. i and it seems impossible to keep track up. but i would like to payne some civil lines as well. we do have vaccines, which even though it may not prevent all of us from getting breakthrough infection will keep us away from the hospital. we have a lot more diagnostic tests available on where the cost of to options, potentially. but covid that could be prescribed that walgreens and favorite drugstore. >> so a lot of headlines today. let's start with the decision about j and j. give us a little a summary of the background of the on how these blood developed does the blood clot happened right after the person gets the shot of j and j. was this something they discover later on. how is it evolving. >> i know a lot of people who have gotten change. you might be worried. but usually the blood clots really occur within one to 2 weeks after the j and j shot. and it's
8:34 pm
really, really rare. and if you think about how rare it is. it's really 3.8 per million overall moines between the ages of 3049. people get better. but i think the cdc fda will moves to this move to this particular vote because there were more deaths over off the look to the data. but still they are at 9 in terms of the, you know, 10's of millions of people got it in the united states. very similar to astrazeneca. so i think they had a decision. you should be you know, not to recommend it to anyone or should be preferentially recommend it or should be just recommended for one age group and i think they chose. let's keep it on the market. keeping maybe d emphasize. okay. okay. another we just did the story about airline ceos to them. >> saying that you don't necessarily need to wear a mask in an airplane.
8:35 pm
>> i and so many levels. this is disturbing because for the flying public, if you're in a closed environment like you know, i mean. we're exposed to people. you like to think maybe the help of filters working. okay. maybe it is. maybe it is. it. it is that extra barrier. >> but doesn't it also undermine the messaging. you know that they are having enough of a problem with people getting on airplanes and refusing to wear their masks. and now the boss is saying you don't need it. >> vicki. that is a terrifying message me on so many levels. the you know, pointing that out of quincy and what that message is. you're right. it's the wrong time because we're in the middle of this increasing surge right now. we don't know who's sitting next to you. there is no vaccine requirements of lying. it's you know, it's not like if somebody has a vacuum of dyson vacuum right next to the nose
8:36 pm
and mouth and everyone ventilation is good but not that good. and you know, people eating drinking as well on the plane. so i think there's a lot of behavior you can control. >> we have another story on our earlier newscast about the fact that so many people using it at home tests that a lot of the statistics are not getting to public health officials about omicron and that omicron is probably much more widespread and that and we even know if it is what does that name. >> well, it means you know, wearing the cusp of a right now. it means that kind of running around with a little bit of you know, like maureen had really wanted people eat at home testing to report it. it is a limitation home testing, although it's much easier for people to to do and to implement. so you know, eventually about to catch up. we're going to catch it by seeing all the stages, all the sports teams sending home letters. i think all of that
8:37 pm
mean retrospect be due to omicron. so side of town. real quick. this kind of ties in vicki was asking. but at this stage in the pandemic where where are we going, where things going. you know, we to take the mask also put the mask on. we. >> we lockdown. we don't lock the nfl has new protocols. >> what do you guys in science. see this going. what give us some sense of what we can expect. >> well, pat. and that's a great question. i think the quick answer we're not completely sure. but many people think that a combination maybe a lot of people get breakthrough infection. now it omicron. vaccinated plus rate give you hydrate immunity and that will bring us out of it. it seems that the summer kron might be milder. so it's not going to be the wave of the next generation of covid variant milder and milder and eventually going to fizzle out at some point the 1918 flu pandemic fizzle out as well. yeah, the question is just how
8:38 pm
long and people's for this is just at you. we thought it was at the breaking point last year and this year we go again. here we go. >> well, thank you so much, doctor peter chin-hong, as always, i'm sure we'll be talking to you again soon. thanks so much. but think have a good evening. and right now at kron 4 dot com. you can read about the latest coronavirus headlines just scan the qr code on your screen and you'll be directed to our website. some of the top headlines include data on omicron variant pfizer's new pill to fight we did have a chance to ask him about that. the new statewide indoor mask mandate. we'll have to buy them back. it's all on kron. 4 dot com. >> great news for our weather here with all the rain and super news for the sierra nevada with all the snow will talk about that. your long range forecast coming up next. >> plus, he does whatever a spider can. but can a spider break the box office slump. the new marvel movie that is expecting a big boom in ticket
