4:00 pm
a week. >> this shortage has left moms on their own searching for ways to feed their babies. >> all of us are trying to share the formula that we have. sometimes even half a can, i'll take half, you take the other half. it is really serious. i cannot rest feed at all, so if i don't have formula, my baby is not going to eat. >> for the past two months, she has been contacting strangers on social media. >> i'm having formula shipped from oklahoma, from kentucky, from sacramento. i recently looked into buying from canada. >> finding formula on the shelves is almost isible.the m'n
4:01 pm
jose is noticing an increase in more moms opting for donated rest milk. >> we are seeing about 20% increase in the amount of milk we shipped up to hospitals and patients. >> as the shortage intensifies, more moms are signing up to go through the process of helping those in need. about 4000 boxes of breastmilk are leaving this location every day. >> this represents shipments for several months. >> today, president biden said the shortage should improve but did not give any specifics as to win. as for teresa, she says every day that goes by is a day her son has less formula. >> how are we going to make this work this week? and there's no end in sight so far. dion: that situation sounds so dire. joining me to talk about it, abc
4:02 pm
7 news contributor dr. patel. you obviously know about the issue. how serious exactly is this problem? >> it is serious in two kind of evidence. it is serious in the fact that three companies control 90% of our formula supply, so the fact that we are in this position, the fact that our supply chain is so sensitive and we don't have a lot of resources from others -- four mothers who want to breast-feed so they are reliant on formula, i am increasingly worried about the mothers, those families who do not have the resources or time to go out and find formula power play -- pay increasing prices, but i'm also concerned about kids who have specific formula needs. they require not just any formula but a specific one. all of this is why this is such a national crisis right now. dion: that being said, what are some safe alternatives parents can use if they cannot get their
4:03 pm
hands on formula or just do not have the time to get it? >> if we are talking under six-month and children adjust formula fed with no health concerns, an alternative formula is acceptable. try it to see if your infant likes the taste of it. parents who are worried about a specific type should talk to a pediatrician and look to see if there is an extra supply from a local representative. they can call local charitable to look and see if you can get that specific formula because that is extremely important to this population. dion: i actually got an instagram dem from a mom says she is concerned and asking the doctor about watering down formula. is that safe? can you make your own formula as well?
4:04 pm
>> unfortunately not. i don't want to judge parents thinking of making their own formula, but it is not safe when it comes to him watering down formula. you can actually dilute formula down to a dangerous level when it comes to electrolytes. the nutrition that babies need. it is almost impossible to replicate the science of breastmilk and formula in your own home blender. the fda requires a specific minimum and maximum on vitamins and nutrients and if you deviate from that level, it could be catastrophic for infants. milk, almond milk, plant-based milk -- none of that is adequate. that is why we are so dependent on the supply. dion: thank you. pleasure having you. dan: moving on in the south bay, two new arrest in the death of a
4:05 pm
three-year-old girl. her uncle and grandfather were arrested wednesday. they along with the victim's mother are accused of taking part in an exorcism at the grandfather's san jose church that led to the child's death. police say the mother believed the child was possessed because she woke up and cried during the night. dion: abc 7 news reporter dustin dorsey explains how incidents could create a legal ripple effect leading to cases being overturned. >> the san jose police department is under fire. the mayor at a breaking point after at least four issues of officer misconduct have come to light recently. >> we have a serious problem. >> the stp pd chief seen yesterday escorting officer matthew dominguez out of internal affairs.
4:06 pm
civil-rights lawyer john burris worries accountability may not actually be demonstrated. he says officers accused of showing up drunk on the job, indecent exposure, dying from drugs, and offering a meth pipe in exchange for information should not happen and there are true consequences for actions. >> it has to make sense that officers will be held accountable for misconduct. if you don't do that, you send a clear message to the officer that rules don't matter and that you will be protected no matter what. >> many are questioning the st pd hiring process, a question the mayor voiced yesterday. >> there may be something very seriously wrong with whatever we are doing in screening and backgrounding, and we need to figure that out. we've got to fix it. >> if they do not, legal analyst
4:07 pm
steve clarke says it will lead to a legal ripple effect. he says cases can be overturned due to a lack of credibility if the officers facing misconduct charges made past arrests. >> when you have this much bad publicity involving some very disturbing events . dan: in san francisco, seven people were rescued, some taken to the hospital, alloying and apartment fire. two teachers are hailed as heroes for going inside the

4:09 pm
>> they were screaming and knocking and crawling and trying to get us out. when the doors open, they went in and rescued the elderly people. they were fantastic. >> she managed to take her two parakeets with her. this man on a stretcher was also rescued and treated. >> started bringing one lady out. she was burned really bad on her face and hands. then they brought another lady out. she had smoke all over her. then they brought another lady out, she had smoke all over her. they were 80 years old, i guess. >> firefighters described it as a fast-moving blaze. it was a rescue effort aided by two teachers who thought of their neighbors first. >> we are teachers so we care about other people. hopefully anybody would do the same thing. dan: amazing work that those teachers did. this fire in alameda county was not out of control.

4:12 pm
have enough bathrooms. they have bad ventilation. we are at risk of the embarcadero flooding. >> do you think it will pass? >> i do not think governor is proposing has support in the legislature. stephanie: but there is plenty in the package that does have support, including $2.7 billion allowing low income tenants who were denied aid to get help. others include a 12-month pause in the diesel tax rate and hundreds of millions to provide priebus and train rides across the state -- free bus and train rides across the state. from subsidies to wage increases, newsom also proposed california's minimum wage will jump to $15.50 at the first of the year. another proposal announced aims to help waive childcare costs

4:20 pm
7:00 or 8:00 this evening, so if you have plans to be outside in those areas, it will be windy and the cloud cover will increase. temperatures very comfortable away from the coast at 7:00. we will drop down to around 60 degrees by the time we get to 10:00 and the breezes will back off a little bit. going to a watch party at the chase center, the breezes will be there about the entire game. tipoff at 7:00 and we will drop down to about 56 degrees, so dress warmly. we also have baseball on the other side of the break. this is a six hole -- 6:40 first pitch. not quite as crisp in oakland as it will be in san francisco. san jose, look at that -- gorgeous into the afternoon and into the evening hours. if you are sneezing, that may be e as. jet streams well to our north as

4:26 pm
dan: that's tough, isn't it? let's move on now to consumer news. dion: help -- hopefully some good news. >> california's minimum wage is going up. starting january 2023, the minimum will increase to $10.50 an hour, due to a 2016 legislative bill that mandates a minimum wage increase if inflation rates rise above 7%. california's current minimum wage is $15 an hour for companies with at least 26 workers and $14 an hour for mpieitewer employees. an's proje co-o be h as.6%. an average retiree receiving $1657 each month would receive
4:27 pm
an additional $142.50 each month. the internal revenue service has cost an estimated 30 million paper-filed -- lost an estimated 30 million paper-filed returns. the irs says an estimated 99% had already been processed. 1% had been trashed. it could lead to mismatches of taxpayer information and possibly incur penalties, but the irs says no taxpayers have been faulted for issues stemming from the purge. dion: what a headache. thank you. dan: a new covert warning. what bay health officials say you should dart to do -- you should start to do. plus -- >> the most difficult for me

4:31 pm
rates in all of california. that has health officers in everyone to wear a mask indoors and in public settings. officials are monitoring a rise in the level of waters in local sewer systems and an increase in hospitalizations. >> joining me now is the marin county public health officer, dr. matt willis. it is interesting. so many times during the pandemic, the bay area seemed to be doing better than other parts of the state. now we are doing worse again. what does this new morning mean? what is going on? what should we be thinking about? >> this is led by the ba.2 subvariant of the omicron variant, and it is even more contagious, so that is the primary search we are seeing. we have seen four times higher case rates.
4:32 pm
we are seeing increased virus in our sewer sheds and wastewater. this is a signal to us that when we are out and about in the community, exposure is even higher than it has been, and that was the reason for issuing the recommendation for people to cover their faces in public settings. dan: i'm going to ask you more a couple of ways, but ba.2 variant is more transmissible but less severe -- is that not correct? >> that's right. as each week passes, we learn more and more about the characteristics of these variants. ba.2 -- what we are seeing with ba.2 is that it is able to spread through the community more quickly because it is more contagious, but we are seeing fewer cases coming into the hospital, and that is a sign that it is less.
4:33 pm
let -- less virulent. treatments, high vaccination rates, and a list virulent strain are contributing to the benefit of fewer hospitalizations, despite surges in cases. dan: that is certainly something to take some comfort in. what about the rise in cases given what you just talked about ? are you concerned, or will this ed without too much damage -- will this bb without too much damage? >> we are seeing new variants emerge, the virus continues to t sidestepom the message that went out today is let's use the tools we know are effective. face covering is effective.
4:34 pm
it is not something we need to use forever, but when there is a surge, it is something we should be using. when the search results, it is not as important and we can put those masks away again. >> it is relatively painless, and we are used to wearing masks. it is not a huge sacrifice. do you think we will return to mandatory mass and dates? >> i don't see that happening. i think we are at a place where especially in the bay area, people respect science and the guidance. right now, we know it is in everyone's best interest to recognize that the risk has increased. vaccine rates are very high, so i don't see us resorting to mandates currently, but of course, we will have to watch. if we do see surges of people coming into the hospital our --

more drama around elon $44 billion takeover of twitter. musk tweeted that the deal was temporarily on hold. the issue was how many of twitter's active users are actually real. two hours after the tweet, musk posted that he is still committed to the acquisition. maybe i will start with you. we saw this with tesla and some of his other businesses, fits and starts, is it going to happen, not going to happen, what do you think? >> that is what i went back to. when he started up tesla, he was going to be in san jose, then southern california. i'm not surprised there were some bumps in the road. also, it was a $44 billion deal. between trying to get an even better deal for that and knowing his past -- he is clearly super

4:44 pm
dan: i have never been superstitious either and until you said it, i did not even realize it was friday the 13th. dion: what do you guys think about being superstitious or not? >> with your birthday being today, i think we have proof there are some real issues here.
