6:06 am
6:07 am
good morning. very happy thursday. we brought you the news as it happened, 6.6 million americans applied for first-time jobless claims last week. now that was more than economists expected but there's much bigger news in that data. that is that the labor department has resized the number from two weeks ago from
6:08 am
around 3 million to 7 million. the following weeks report is more than 6 million, and then you got more than 6 million this week. so what this means is this is the largest number of americans collecting unemployment in the history of the united states. you have heard the internet that has items, and this is a connected bay area thank yermom. the data is anonymous. the ceo joins me from his home. we are talking about companies and how they collect data and how that is helpful with doctors, and i will show the viewers a map you made, and to be clear, this is an older map, it's the flu and not the coronavirus, but you were able to track the flu through your
6:09 am
thermometers, as people took their temperatures. that's amazing. >> yeah, we are plotting and mapping fevers across the country and in the past it has helped to predict where the flu will strike. >> so do you have enough thermometers out there across the united states, and you have statistically good numbers to look at. is this useful? >> yeah, we have more than $1 million thermometers in the u.s. that is sending us data. there's science behind this. we have been doing this for eight years and we have shown we can predict flu on the city by city basis weeks in advance. technology now allows us to predict the flu 12 weeks in advance, and today it's detecteding covid-19. >> let's talk about covid-19.
6:10 am
there's a chart that struck me that your data scientists made in which we see santa clara county compared to miami-dade. in santa clara here in silicon valley, we got a early jump in sheltering in place at our homes. famously, they were quite delayed. you can see in the chart with your own eyes, the affect of that and this is collected through your thermometer data. >> yeah, the data is clear. every single place in the country, including here in california, those areas that implemented aggressive social distancing, shelter in place, and you can see the data where levels start to level off and then falling dramatically. now that many places in the country have the social distancing activity, you athat' that means we are breaking the chain of infection and flattening the curb. one area not at zero yet is new
6:11 am
york. our hypothesis is they are hovering around 2%, and it's tough to do aggressive social distancing in a high density city like new york. >> i will leave you with this one last question, a basic question. i understand why scientists want your data. why does a family, a mom and dad, was an internet connected thermometer? >> we don't talk about that today a lot, so thanks for asking that question. think of it a guidance system that starts with a thermometer, and it helps to coach you about what to do, when to go to the doctor and what is going around. that answers much more beyond what is your body temperature. >> as a young parent i remember lots of questions that could have been answered. thank you.
6:12 am
i want to leave you with something that is coronavirus free, and that's an interesting new development in the space of robot cars. a company out of mountainview has gotten permission to run their cars without drivers, no safety driver at all, and they will be used to make home deliveries. it will start testing after the virus has reached safe levels. i think you will see pretty soon those cars driving by with big logos. >> that could be interesting, especially during a time like this. very handy there. thank you. speaking of just trying to get to the grocery store, it's tough but now you can book a grocery store shopping reservation. it's a grocery app that launched yesterday and now eight bay area restaurants are online, and that includes this restaurant, and
6:13 am
the owner says grocery reservations help to keep everybody safe. >> they are trying to do good work for us, and i thought it made sense to give people an opportunity to book ahead. >> other stores on the app include other restaurants. a lot of the restaurants that we have seen have been converting from not being able to have people in the restaurants, but they have all the goods they use to make the food so they are selling it off. >> yeah, everybody doing what they can right now. 6:19 for you right now. meteorologist kari hall working from home this morning. kari, starting off or shaping up to be a nice day today. >> yeah, we are going to have another nice day. yesterday was beautiful but we were still tracking spotty showers close to the bay area. as we take a look out here this morning, a live view in dublin

6:27 am
having a definite positive affect by the mitigation things we are doing, the physical separation, so i believe we are going to see a downturn in that, and it looks more like 60,000 than the 100 to 200,000. but having said that we better be careful we don't say, okay, we're doing so we will we can pull back. we still have to put our foot on the accelerator when it comes to the mitigation and physical separation. >> you can watch the full interview with dr. fauci coming up at 7:00 a.m. on the "today" show, in about 30 minutes. >> thank you, bob. happening today the city of santa clara will be handing out free breakfast and lunches to children and their parents. starting today at 2:00 p.m., parents can pick up breakfast and lunched, bagged phaeld fmea the weekend. head over to our website to see

6:35 am
very hard-working. he has a family. >> so far police are not saying what kind of leads they have or even whether they know what led up to the dispute. the state of the u.s. economy continues to worry washington. scott mcgrew, congress planning to hand out more money and the white house is thinking about a special economic task force now. >> that's right. and we just got word, marcus, i mean minutes ago from the fed about their program to add to the ppe, and i am still going over the numbers so can't report much on that yet, but i will. we also know nancy pelosi and congress wanting to work with republicans on the ppe, and a special focus on small business there. nbc learned the president is thinking about creating a task force that would work specifically on the economy, perhaps led by the secretary of the treasury. as we have been reporting with this week's first-time jobless
6:36 am
claims, there are right now more americans collecting unemployment than at any point in american history. so the economic task force would look similar to the coronavirus task force, which is led by vice president mike pence. we also noticed vice president pence is more often in the background as the press briefings go way off topic. this is a fault of the reporters as well as the president. for instance, on wednesday's briefing, a day 1,800 americans died, the deadliest day yet, somebody asked the question about the netflix show "tiger king" and whether joe exotic should get a pardon. >> 22 years for what? what did he do? >> allegedly he hired somebody to murder an animal rights activist. but he says he didn't do it. >> are you on his side? are you recommending a pardon?

6:38 am
hra atlanta, and at kroger stores in atlanta where he lives. many were floored by his generosity. nice to see. meteorologist kari hall has been tracking our forecast for today. kari, shaping up to be a good one today. >> yeah, we have seen the rain very close to the bay area. still slight rain chances, but we have had a lot of storms recently. the drought monitor was just updated this morning so i wanted to talk about it briefly as we see this map across california, and where you see it shaded in, that's where we have at least abnormally dry or drought conditions. we are still under a moderate drought, even with the rain we have seen over the past couple of weeks. as we look at what we are expecting going into the forecast climate prediction center, it says we will be below average, and we know we are headed into a drier trend as
6:39 am
temperatures reach into the uppe we will see low 70s in partsf warmer with more sunshine in the forecast. then we also have been tracking the storm system just to the south across southern california, though, rain still continues. we are on the northern edge of that. that could bring in rain as we go into today. we are still seeing some of the heaviest rain over parts of the central valley and moving off the central coast, and that rain is mostly north of l.a. as we look at the forecast today going hour-by-hour, we are looking at a chance of spotty showers, for the east bay, the south bay and peninsula. in the north bay we could see a little more sunshine, but that's going to help warm up the temperatures there and the model showing we could see another round of rain for tonight as the storm system to our south brings in wet weather here. still, as we look at the overall trend over the next seven days, we will keep slight rain chances but also warm up. by the weekend we are drying out and easter is looking beautiful.
6:40 am
we have highs in the mid-70s. for the inland areas and san francisco, we will have sunshine, and it's going to be nice for easter, and also watching some of our easter services right here on nbc bay area. as we head over to mike, you have been tracking the commute. what is going on for essential workers as they are about to head out the door? >> we have one note for the south bay, but a great ride for essential workers. and also, for easter, everybody is celebrating but find a way to do that without physically connecting. i have to have a concern for folks getting off shift and heading down 17 and getting off the freeway at bear creek road, there's a report that two or three large boulders are in the roadway, and it's dark, and if
6:41 am
you are tired after your shift, thank you for doing your work, but be careful getting home because the boulders could be an issue. and maybe better news bottom, v been restored. we were out there and some of the first trains on the back, and they are back after the trainee was diagnosed with covid a couple weeks ago. in that off time, they replaced seats with a new fabric and they deep cleaned all the trains. that's terrific, folks. we will show you the details for bart, which as you know is limited to one train every 30 minutes, and that's about half the train we had. down to only 6% of the clients they used to have. muni down to 17 bus routes and are only focusing around the hospitals and most frequently used routes. they had to downsize because the
