8:01 pm
another booster dose of its vaccine for people 65 and older. the vaccine maker is citing data from israel that suggests older adults would benefit from the extra dose. >> kron four's justin campbell talked to an infectious disease expert and has her take. >> think that there's a profit motive in deciding on that. monica gandhi, an infectious disease doctor and professor of medicine at ucsf says on top of the financial motive, she doesn't think the pfizer ceo should decide when we need a shot. we don't use to everyone. >> all the time like the pfizer ceo implicating doctor gandhi says people who need their antibodies high all the time. >> may need to get a 4th shot. and usually those are older people immunocompromised or people with multiple co-morbidities. but for everyone else, doctor gandhi says will have to learn to live with the virus as state and countries roll back
8:02 pm
pandemic restrictions probably going to be exposed to covid is just very transmissible. and the best thing you can do to protect yourself is be vaccinated. reporting in san jose justin campbell kron, 4 news. >> the push for a 4th vaccine dose comes as covid cases are surging once again across europe and parts of asia with more than a quarter of americans not fully vaccinated and waning immunity. for those who are medical experts are concerned. and of course, the concern is because what happens overseas eventually happens here in the united states. and there are many similarities at play. the omicron subvariant ba 2 is on the rise. >> 50% increasing in cases in the uk. for example, week upon week for the last few weeks. also being repeated in other european countries like france, denmark, etcetera. we don't have enough people vaccinated. you know, people vaccinated. >> we're going go where their immunity is. no waiting. we have the 8.2.
8:03 pm
>> which is 30% transmissible. then. >> doctors >> say new drug treatments and more immunized population puts the u.s. in a better position than during past surges. but masking and other measures could return to the united states. see a spike in hospitalizations. meantime, state lawmakers in sacramento today rejected an attempt to end governor gavin newsom's covid related state of emergency. this was the first time state lawmakers could publicly debate whether or not to keep emergency in place. the bill was dusted off for its first hearing after senator melissa melendez introduce a push in december of 2020. she says the state of emergency has given the governor too much power and noted. 29 other states have ended their emergencies. this time for the legislature to reassert its constitutional authority. >> as a legislative body of this state and and this
8:04 pm
endless emergency, the governor has come close or possibly has violated the constitutional separation of powers doctrine by legislating through executive order. >> on a party line vote, members of the committee on governmental organization rejected ending the state of emergency. some democrats opted out of voting with questions about how exactly this could affect federal funding in response to future surges. the chairman of the committee agreed to grant the resolution reconsideration meeting. it can be brought back for another vote later on this year. >> federal officials say travelers will be required to wear masks on planes and public transportation for one more month. that mandate was set to expire back on march. the 18th. but last week, the cdc and the tsa extended it. now republicans in congress are fighting that decision. they are calling on the biden administration to end the mask mandate for airplanes but trains and transit hubs. they have even filed a new lawsuit
8:05 pm
against the cdc. >> this is stupid. it's not health related. it's not science related. it's not medicine related. it is political theater and it's time for it. and why don't we let americans be americans? >> and to be able to choose in this process. >> the u.s. senate will vote this week to end the mask mandate on modes of public transportation. the senate will be using the congressional review act which allows congress to stop rules introduced by the administration. all right. let's shift gears just a bit and check on our forecast on this tuesday night with a live look outside at sfo. looks like a phone bank behind. yeah, it kind got there, it was raining earlier. not much so, lawrence, we'll take what we can get. that was perfect. sleeping weather that made up for having lose an hour over the weekend. right? but i mean, having that just that nice rain in the morning hours for the most part winding down as we head toward the middle of the day. still nice little soaker and some of that
8:06 pm
moisture left behind. we've got some fog reported around the bay area this evening. rain totaled up at about a 3rd of an inch of rain in santa rosa petaluma to 10 snap a 161900's in san francisco. oakland had 1600's at pacifica, 1407 inch of rain over some of the mountain .ops like mount tam. >> over a half an inch of rain. so a nice little soaker outside across the bay area. this front working its way all the way in the point conception, you see by the time it gets in southern california really kind of fall apart. but kind of an interesting afternoon. you know, you get the storms coming through. you get some of the heating in the afternoon. all of a sudden you can get some pop-up thunderstorms. we did have that today. see that south of west of chico and well things settling down now. that's way it's going to stay the bay area. still looking at some clouds out there right now along the coastline. a couple clouds bumping up against some of the hills as well. and then the trend, though, is going to be for this front to really kind of move out of town and fall apart. high pressure takes in. but just a week ridge is going to slip in for tomorrow. it will keep us dry. it will bring some more sunshine back to the bay area.
8:07 pm
but that is going all change, i think is we're going to get a chance of a few more showers coming our way tomorrow, though, yet more of a northerly wind kicking in should bring some bright sunshine to the bay area. and some warmer temperatures to go along with that, too. as we get to saint patty's day gets a little intrigue. you see a little swirl in the atmosphere week low want to spin off the coastline. there's a slight chance we might see a couple of sprinkles on saint patty's day. after that, we're going to dry things out again, for least a day. but we get the weekend we could be talking about a stronger storm system moving in temperatures tomorrow. looking nice, 70 degrees in fremont. 73 in the napa valley. 72 degrees in concord. 66 in hayward and oakland about 62 degrees in downtown san francisco. looking out over the next few days, the final week of spring. and we've got a lot of sunshine for tomorrow. we turn to some clouds with a slight chance of showers on saint paddy's day. the clouds start to thicken up late on friday. i think more significant storm moving in with some rain here. some snow in the sierra nevada spring begins lots of sunshine and by the middle of next week, we're talking temperatures in the 80's.
8:08 pm

8:10 pm
>> plus, inflation is a key issue right now. some announcements are expected how much interest rates are set to change the presidential address. the united states congress, a leader of ukraine set to speak to our nation's lawmakers tomorrow bay area. congressman john garamendi joins us next to talk about the latest developments.
8:11 pm
8:12 pm
>> one of the leading voices from the bay area in congress over the crisis in ukraine is
8:13 pm
representative john garamendi of the 8th congressional district. he's on the house armed services committee. congressman is joining us now to talk more about what's happening in ukraine on the night before that troubled country's president is set to speak virtually to the u.s. congress. >> thank you for being with us tonight. missed again monday. so let's start with president zelensky. of course, he addressed the canadian of politicians today. he addresses the u.s. congress tomorrow. here's a big issue is for more help. and of course, the no fly zone. what is the u.s. prepared to do at this point? >> well, certainly tomorrow we're going to hear from an extraordinary individual fellow that has in this time of crisis to lead. not only is country but really, too raleigh, the entire world around the costs for ukraine and add to beat a very very serious spied against overwhelming russian forces. and i suspect ultimately will be successful in a very difficult situation. what he
8:14 pm
will ask for our defensive weapons and you get those the president biden just authorized to date additional. i believe that almost 300 million dollars. i was on top of 300 billion dollars. a couple about a week ago. so well over a billion and a half dollars of very serious military financial humanitarian aid has been is available and has been made available to ukraine over the 13 months. now. more to come with regard to the no fly zone. this is a very, very difficult situation for ukraine. they are not able to control the skies. however, they have denied russia full access to the skies quite amazing feat, basically using some by singer vessels, which are very, very you small, but for lower altitudes, right out of 2. it's not so much. and with very few jet airplanes as this war has proceed be
8:15 pm
ability of ukraine to if and the skies week care continues to be critically important. the call for the russian make fighters out of poland. it's one that united states isn't willing to do poland because of maybe seeing it probably would be direct involvement in the war. however, i think there are some other assets that could be made available to ukraine. think for a moment about the iron dome that israel has so successfully used to defend against missiles. those are also useful for airplanes. there are other systems are available in that european countries have developed that could be useful in air defense systems. one of the problems with the jet make fighters poland and even be a gradient is that russia has on the border of ukraine. the most sophisticated air defense systems in the world. and that's the s 400. it has a
8:16 pm
range of 400 kilometers. and so basically most of eastern ukraine can be range by those anti aircraft. missiles that russia has on the border ukraine. and so it may very well be that those jets would not be particularly useful in the eastern ukraine area. i know our military is looking at this very carefully. these other air defense systems would probably be more readily available and would not constitute same problem that fighters have. congressman, talk about the success ukraine has had in the military fight >> they're totally overwhelmed overmatched by russian forces. yet they've had tremendous success in facts. there are reports that russia may run out of a equipment and material it needs to sustain this battle by may. there's been talk that perhaps russia may be ready to pull the plug
8:17 pm
by may this things don't eo better for them. and this is helping the negotiations between sowinski and the the russian side as they try to negotiate it in into this. what are you hearing about russian losses and how bad they are? >> well, reported by north pole news organizations as well as the ukrainian government. russia has been unable to carry out its military objectives because they did not calculate the will of the ukrainian people to defend their democracy and to defend their country. there is no substitute. by any weapon. but the determination. of people to maintain their country to maintain their beliefs and maintain their way of life that democracy. that's the most powerful weapon at all. and that is what? russia is learning and particularly with that. courage is mad
8:18 pm
bands such as sowinski who will hear from frankly, i think most of america the same speech. my understanding that is talk will be carried by a various of american media and good for good for america, for all of us to hear. beyond there's talk that russia is reaching out to china for sandwiches, meals. boxed meals. and we do know that one of the reasons that the convoys were strong words for lack of fuel and supplies. clearly, russia did not anticipate the nature and the willingness of the upgrades to fight and the arguments that they did have available to the stinger and javelin are deadly weapons when deployed against armor the case, the javelin dispersed fingers against low flying aircraft and russia's learned that lesson also gave us the city. it's a huge city and any army knows that. street by street, warfare is
8:19 pm
the worst of all. and that requires enormous number of men and equipment, all of which are at risk for every block, every apartment building, every quarter. and so russia is learning this hard part less and that's why they're resorting to the horrible russian technique of just levalley the cities. just creating a wasteland. they do they did that in check here. they did last night and they certainly are doing in the cities of ukraine. that's a crime against humanity. that fella that's on the screen right now should find his place. at the world report being tried for war crimes. he deserves it and he may yet have is today. the other factor that is increasingly apparent and this was on russia state media yesterday when young woman decided she would one of their major with
8:20 pm
an antiwar message. the streets of russia. our ultimate jeopardy. continue demonstrations in the street to continue every precinct number of progress and the ever-increasing, willingness of russians to get to the truth to understand exactly what has at least on the sisters and brothers in ukraine. will turn the russian people against him. and when you add in the sanctions which are hitting the russian people very, very hard, they will come to realize this is prudence war. >> president biden is planning to join a an emergency meeting with nato next week. there's a lot of concern about whether or not china will enter this in some way into in terms of the russian actions, whether it's through food or supplies or military for one. are you concerned about the resolve of the european union, nato
8:21 pm
members in light of the rising gas prices and a few of the lessening of supplies and also china's role. are you concerned that china may infect the site to help russia? >> let's take you state data first. i'm a member of nato parliamentary assembly beat baby watch every 6 we've done this year after year. for the most part, nato, there' a debating society. the church debating the greeks over cyprus and on and on the last 2 meetings most recently and not a february 20th 21020th and 23rd just before invasion. there was a remarkable unity. our solidarity unification, that determination to stand together and the european union is similarly this pen said most of his time trying to figure out the price your was the first out with sanctions and then the united states followed a good move by the biden administration let you go first and that for the
8:22 pm
united states to follow there is unity in nato. the nato members are in the eastern. countries. poland of romania both ever. and even now down into bulgaria, they are receiving up to 3 million refugees and they're doing their part not only with refugees that by providing avenues for the delivery of the the military equipment. so nato standing strong and china is taking note. the european union is the single biggest. market for china bigger than the united states. and china is aware that the european union wants no part is absolutely unified, opposed to the war and beating on the sanctions knowing full well to your second point that the sanctions are going to be an economic challenge for europe. they certainly are for the united states, but far, far less than for your. it's
8:23 pm
absolutely clear that a good deal of the price rise of fuel is putting this war. not the only thing. other thing happens to be what i believe is price gouging and opportunistic pricing by the petroleum industry, from from the pumps, in the field to the pumps at the gas station and everything in between and so, oh, yes, this war is costing american pocketbooks. no doubt about it. but this is really about the future for of peace in this world. there is no doubt that food intense, if you could possibly do so to rebuild the russian empire or the soviet union that's its intention go back to everything is written since the 1990's. and it's been about they sorry, devise of the soviet union and and his desire to rebuild the russian empire, that these poll and that means estonia, that the
8:24 pm
way of latvia as well the ukraine and down into a and that gary a that's his ball. and if you successful. and subject and subjugated. you're great. it will not stop. he's been congressman john garamendi on the house armed services committee. >> we know you're deeply involved in the u.s. efforts to try to bring this war to an end over there. and we really appreciate your perspective and giving us that information on what's going on. we look forward to the speech tomorrow from president solecki and all that speech. thank you. thank you. >> and coming up tonight, the clock is ticking on daylight saving. why some lawmakers are saying this could be the year. the annual
8:25 pm
8:26 pm
8:27 pm
>> for your money, the federal reserve is poised to announce an interest rate hike tomorrow because of growing inflation. the central bank is likely to raise rates by a quarter of a percentage point. it will be the first interest rate hike since 2018 forecasters expect the fed to impose additional interest rate hikes later this year. all in an effort to cool consumer demand, which has outpaced supply and driven prices sharply higher. chairman jerome powell says that the fed will also continue to monitor the war in ukraine and how it hampers the u.s. economy and then act accordingly. spring forward an
8:28 pm
hour. daylight saving time could be here to stay. the u.s. senate unanimously approved a measure that would make daylight saving time. >> permanent next year. that means we would have to change our clocks twice year. but the bill state still needs to pass the house. and from there it has to go to the president who would have to sign it into law. senators from both sides of the aisle argue making daylight saving time permanent would have a positive effect on our health and even cut energy consumption. and for your health tonight, a recent study shows that even a small amount of light can damage your sleep. researchers at northwestern university measured brain waves of people sleeping in dark and dimly lit rooms. the study found the smallest amount of light affected the body even when participants had their eyes closed. this includes weight gain cardiovascular problems and higher insulin levels. sleep experts recommend dark rooms, closing your blinds and buying a sleep mask to shut out any extra light. next on
