we are indeed seen covid-19 cases. drop relatively rapidly in the city, and we can now confidently say that we are on the beginning of a downward trajectory with regard to this search, but, says dr grant colfax, since hospitalizations occur after infection. san francisco hospitalizations will continue to climb for a few days , but nowhere near where they will overwhelm hospitals. he also noted that in january of 2021 165 san franciscans died from covid. as opposed to january of 2022 so far this january, only five have died. at this point, it looks good with regard to making it through. we are likely to make it through this surge and come out in a much better place to really know what's happening. the city will make testing much more accessible, affordable. and fast . this will allow the city to drop restrictions whenever warranted. we are working with
our state and federal partners to make rapid over the counter test, easy to come by and are requiring our health care system partners to step up. and you their part with regard to testing, the mayor said the city attorney's office will continue to deal decisively with anyone not authorized to conduct testing in the city. tom baker ktvu. fox two news bulletin is temporarily halting production of its fitness equipment due to a drop in sales. the company plans deposits bike production for two months to control costs. it also won't manufacturers treadmill machine for six weeks starting next month, production of its more expensive bike plus was already halted last month. pellet on sales took off at the start of the pandemic when most gyms and fitness centers were closed, but have since stalled. pellet on stock was down nearly 24% today. shares a netflix were also down sharply today on disappointing subscriber growth . let's cotto's company says it

the last couple days, low sixties some mid upper sixties. the plan is for this high to kind of allow the fog to form late tonight. but then the winds kick up and with the highest strengthening and blow the fog out. so the fog will beat it like if you're traveling on late tonight, you're going to find fog, but i suspect in the morning once the sun comes up, most of that fog will be gone. golden gate bridge right now you see a little fog hanging underneath it, but that's the coastal stuff. just as well to the north of us were it has been for 12 or 13 days now, and it's going to continue to stay up there right through the end of this month or very close to the end of this month. i'm watching the winds on mount diablo right now and you can see right here. that 24 that arrow pointing down is a north wind, and it's blowing at 24 miles an hour so that wind is steadily come up, and that's the wind there were watching to start to go offshore. that will scour that fog out. it's also gotten us a wind advisory that goes into effect tomorrow morning friday morning through our apartment friday morning that tomorrow morning and through saturday morning, so the winds will be
picking up as we go into the day on friday, for sure this is the golden gate bridge again and you can see the fog just a little bit of it out there, but again when it shows up on the coast tonight or inlet, it'll be very dense. but again by tomorrow morning, i suspect a lot of that fog is going to kind of pull away as you look at friday, you can see the patchy fog along the coast friday morning will be wind advisory will go into effect and stays in effect through saturday morning. and in the five day forecast is a dry one, but a nice one. and just enjoy it. nice looking weekend ahead. we don't see any opportunity for rain. really until like, i can say the very end of january 1st couple days of february, so i'll see you back here. on sunday night, hopefully off some better news about the wet stuff. all right. well, we'll see you then. the pleasant in police department is hoping to reunite a pig with its owner. police posted these photos on twitter. they say officers found the piglets wondering around the city. he dropped it off with the east county animal shelter. now if the pig belongs to you, police
