4:07 pm
call hybrid immunity which is stronger luz: the bay area had a lack of natural immunity because some people were vaccinated. >> people have been able to avoid being infected and i think this virus again will often try to find people who are not. luz: san jose is requiring city employees to mask indoors again. so we asked. is there a possibility that a mask mandate could be brought back? >> i think we should always maintain that readiness as a possibility, especially if we see a large impact on our health care system. if we see an increase in deaths or unusual scenarios that thankfully, we maintain low hospitalizations. but i think those are things that we are all concerned about. luz: they confirmed omicron subvariant makes up about half of the sequencing throughout the state. meaning it is quickly overpowering other variants. despite this, she is not highly concerned right now. but says anything can change. >> we could have a variant

tagging the offer is phony. the listing came down. this is not unusual. here are headlines. i will show you, there it is coming up in just a moment. and that wasn't enough, they cillo poster tutorial on how to report it if this happens to you. our sister station in new york spoke with the homeowner six months ago. they said it was alarming because someone from outside of the area was able to gain control over the listing of their home. i talked with zila today about this and was told it allows homeowners to claim their home and make changes to the listed information. that allows some bad guys to get in on the action. they have safeguards but do not want to discuss them. it does not make anyone show a deed before claiming a home so it is far from full proof. although if you complain, they move pretty fast or so >> they
4:26 pm
say. >> still, just thinking about that could think you, michael. the state of the city. you've heard the stories of crime and homelessness, but what do san franciscans really think? plus. can you been my picture? more than just when big tobacco's products were found out to be killers, they promised smokers safety. they called it a filter. but this filter wasn't safe or useful, just small and made of microplastics that have endangered us all. for far too long, they have polluted the earth. they're literally everywhere.

community leaders today for a rally against violence, racism and hate. a new poll released today by the san francisco chamber of commerce has bad news for district attorney jason ahead of his recall election next month. anchor liz kreutz joins us live and at this poll shows voters continue to be frustrated with the direction of the city ry. liz: this poll shows concerns about crime in the city are getting worse. more than half of voters see those as a major issue. the poll shows a majority of san franciscans are unhappy with the district attorney and want to see him recalled. san francisco is heading in the wrong direction, that is according to the results of in any willby the city's chamber of commerce. the poll, which surveyed 500 residents, found 76% of respondents feel san francisco is on the wrong track. 20% feel the city is on the right track. >> unfortunately this year again we have pessimistic views on the city. liz: rodney is the ceo of the
4:30 pm
san francisco chamber of commerce. he announced these findings at a breakfast this morning alongside their been buried the mayor acknowledged frustrations about the city and pledge to do more to increase police staffing. >> i'm tired of people saying they don't feel safe coming to work. i'm tired of seniors in our chinese community wearing about walking down the streets. liz: 82% of the polls respondents say crime has gotten worse in san francisco. 45% say they are likely to move out of the city in the next few years. >> the overall takeaway is that people want laws and policies that are in place to be enforced. liz: the numbers also show bad news for district attorney jason , 67% of respondents say they want him recalled. the chamber of commerce agrees. >> i think the recall sends a message that we want a tough cop in the da role, but also helps send a message to everybody who is saying they have to listen to the public. liz: he told me last week he is being tough on crime and that
4:31 pm
removing him would only destabilize the district attorney's office. there is a feeling that your office is not holding people accountable. >> well sure. there's lots of stories you hear every day, but if you look at the facts. and i know as a journalist, you're working with facts. you will see that my charging rate is actually hired then my predecessor or other bay area district attorney's and it comes to pre-much every category of crime. domestic violence, drug sales, property crime . liz: they have released their own polling that shows them down by 10 points. date say that shows the entire race and other polls suggest that the da is facing an uphill battle as we saw from the chamber of commerce poll, voters are frustrated and they want to send a message. ama: thank you, liz. joining us now is abc 7 insider phil. it lets dig a little bit deeper into this poll. overall, it seemed like it was pretty bad news for jason, however, what you look at this? i think that is a cover of hope for him, which is only 25% art
4:32 pm
listing crime as the primary reason they want to leave san francisco. phil: there are other concerns as well. the cost of living in san francisco, the education system, remember, we had a recall of the board of education. people's frustration with the kabul school system was expressed there. but what has changed however or is the high number of people who say that crime has gotten worse. and that is trouble for jason, but it is also trouble for the mayor as well. mayor london breed, you know, she is the leader of the city and she is taking more and more of a center roll for it. these next couple of months are going to be interesting for a number of people, because it is clear voters are not happy with the flow in san francisco politics. it just so happens that jason is in the barrel and headed over the falls right now. >> alright, but if things trend in this direction, you are right. other politicians may not have a very good fate. what did they need to do between now and a year from now or two
4:33 pm
years from now? phil: what they need to do, if you talk to the people around, is they may even agree with them philosophically in how to handle problems, but they want to see results. the reason i am bringing this up is because it was just last year that homelessness was seen as getting worse and worse in the city. that is not necessarily changing either, it is just that crime has gone out ahead of it. by the way, people not feeling good about the direction of the city is not all that new either. back in 2015, people were actually feeling ok about how san francisco was going pretty in a 2016 it got worse and a 2017 it got better. after that, it is just accumulative effect going on. and the thing is how to get out of it is tough because they are in a deep hole right now. is, most people want more police in high crime areas and eber hood that the matter is san francisco does not have police. police are leaving the force so i don't know how they're gonna make up for that anytime soon.
4:34 pm
same issue with crime, same issue with homelessness. billion's of dollars being spent, but real questions about results. ama: there are budget issues. they want more police, but they also want more caseworkers to help people with behavioral health problems and they want new mental health and behavior centers. how are we going to do all of that? phil: you can build in most places, but you cannot build in san francisco. you got a really good point. we are having a shortage of health care workers. it is not like you can just dial them up ifficult profession and not necessarily people want to get out there and work with the homeless on that level. so what people want these days and have been told by the way that that is the alternative we should go to. that is one of the things politicians have to watch out for from the governor on down, saying i've got a solution. the solution does not have the building blocks in it to actually work at this point. ama: abc7news insider phil, thank you so much. phil: thank you. ama: it's all about wrapping it
