"The California report good morning I'm sol Gonzalez in Los Angeles state officials are releasing details of the future and secretive contract for California to purchase protective gear from China that after reporting from the Los Angeles Times the document trail reveals the Newsome administration scrambling to acquire hospital masks in the absence of federal leadership KQED senior politics editor Scott Shafer reports in mid April the office of emergency services agreed to pay nearly a billion dollars to B. Y. D. a Chinese maker of electric vehicles for hundreds of millions of single use surgical masks as well as N. ninety five masks the N. ninety five masks the gold standard of protective gear were priced at three dollars and thirty cents each but to date the company has only delivered a less expensive surgical masks so California will be getting a refund of more than two hundred and forty seven million dollars lawmakers have been asking for details for weeks and the contracts released Wednesday raise questions about how well the company was vetted for the California report I'm Scott Shafer many people want to get tested to see if they're infected with a corona virus but where governor Newsom has announced a new interactive map Californians can use to find Kobe nineteen testing locations near them KQED politics reporter Katie your has more Californians can now use covert nineteen dot CA dot gov defined corona virus test sites in their area Newsome says he knows testing has been slow to expand in the state we've been very forthright in our recognition that we need to spread out are testing capacity and also deep in it in certain communities Newsome says roughly thirty thousand people a day are now being tested overall more than eight hundred thousand Californians have received a test the new map includes state contracted and community sites not those being run individually I hospital systems for the California report I'm Katie Orr in Sacramento eighty six the prisoner at the terminal island federal detention center in San Pedro has died from Kobe nineteen and more than half of the facilities thousand inmates have tested positive for corona virus as well as fourteen staffers that makes terminal island which is between the ports of LA and Long Beach one of the most significant concentrations of coronavirus cases in the state meanwhile a detainee in immigration and customs enforcement custody has died of Kobe nineteen he was being held at the old time mesa detention center in San Diego county this marks the first coronavirus death of an immigration detainee in ice custody nationwide KPBS reporter Max Rivlin Nadler has more detainees were alerted by guards on Wednesday morning that a fellow detainee had died of cove in nineteen this comes after a Monday hearing where a government lawyer said a detainee was in great condition last week a judge ordered the release of over seventy medically vulnerable detainees at the facility but as of Monday I said only released to individuals Dorian Edgar set though is an attorney who represents clients currently in detention at Otay mesa she says by dragging its feet ice is costing lives I mean there there aren't many people who are at the team is attention central already have released onto already have places to go if I should give the green light does the right thing and went out absolutely preventable and this person's diet unnecessarily immigration and customs enforcement has yet to confirm the death the detention center which is run by the private prison group CoreCivic currently houses a hundred thirty two ice detainees who have tested positive for the virus for the California report I'm actually Nadler in San Diego we reported a lot on all the California industries laying off employees but companies in Silicon Valley are actually hiring and they're hiring a lot of people you heard right it's a good time to be in the market for a mid level white collar job in web development and tech support as KQED's ray tomorrow reports from our Silicon Valley desk surely dang was laid off in April when the Palo alto based startup burn and guided its marketing department stable is like a relative term now staying would prefer to work for a bigger company she owns a house in Hayward with her fiance and he's still working but the mortgage could become a concern and about six months a lot of good companies that I might want to work for or envision myself with are holding off on hiring now so I know like across the board like tech companies have hiring freezes unless it's a very technical role where it's like engineering or developer the numbers back up dings assessment experts say this economic downturn favors giants with the cash reserves to wait out a revenue drop or pivot to arenas with more potential for profit so for instance Facebook which is said it plans to hire ten thousand people this year wants a bigger piece of the online video market which is exploding while most of us are stuck at home because of the pandemic now as we've reported on KQED Silicon Valley employers often split their payroll between full time employees with pennies and contractors which is why it makes sense to check in with Hayden brown chief of up work and employment platform for white collar gig work from home and so we're seeing a lot of activity around web development video production technical support is a big one so there's a lot of activity where people are you know trying to deploy install and maintain technical systems for their business but there are skeptics who worry that what we're witnessing in Silicon Valley is a temporary uptick before bad time settle in yeah it certainly seems like an odd time to try purposely to hire new people why why not just wait wait till Massaro directs research at the Silicon Valley institute for regional studies and joint venture Silicon Valley hospital that a lot of these data points a lot of the indicators that we're looking at will have a lag time and in a few months we'll get a better understanding of the influence of the crisis right now those Silicon Valley companies on the downswing like Airbnb getting a quarter of its workforce this week are taking a hit because what they do is directly taking a hit from the pandemic but as the economy as a whole collapses into recession the current winners in tack may not be able to sail above the fray for long for the California report by me to my room.
