four children have contracted the virus. so, dr. -- thanks for joining us. let's start with the news about -- the fda they saying it is safe for babies just a few weeks old. how important is the sense the vaccine has not been approved for kids or younger kids? >> that is the point, you know? there is no vaccine for these kids, so they have no protection. we saw from the study today how many kids are getting infected. so it is great to have this for these kids who get really sick and need to be treated. fortunately, kids don't get really sick often. but they do. and up until now, we have not had a tool in our toolkit to really help. so, a child who is moderately ill -- may be a candidate for this. certainly may very well and likely will prevent hospitalization.
>> let's talk about pfizer's treatment. it is shown to reduce risk of death by 90%. how can this make a huge impact as we navigate this new normal of 1025 and really living with covid? >> well, as i said, we know how contagious this virus is. it is very hard to avoid it. people get sick from it as we know. so having some of the other treatments available for people who are home sick may be at risk for progressing to serious disease -- it almost guarantees you are not going to wind up in the hospital. five days, and that is it. so, it is really wonderful to have. and it is wonderful to have now. if there is another variant as
bad as dr. was, this will be a godsend at that point. >> speaking of 1025, we are seeing cases rising to the bay area. hospitalizations are also starting to take up. are we seeing a fifth surge? >> well, we are seeing away. there is no passion about that. i don't think we should be calling it a third yet, but it is going up. it is like right now. what we don't know is if it is a foothill to a big mountain in front of it. that is the real surge? or is it just a foothill that is going to come down again gradually much like last april with the alpha variant. no way of knowing. the bottom line for me is let's take advantage of the period. of time and not let it turn into a search. really bring together our
resources in case there is something bad around the corner. >> i am curious what your opinion is that we have listed the math mandates on traveling and we are seeing more people walk around without masks. even in sanford school, which was generally very conservative, what do you think about how our world has turned around and seeing these cases up to 50 think we should go back to wearing masks? >> well, i think everybody predicted we would see an uptick in cases. and we know that when there is an up in cases, almost always, hospitalizations tend to follow that about two weeks later. so that is, i think, what we're seeing here. and we have got an extremely contagious virus. as a matter of fact, this ba.2 .1 is incredibly dangerous. even more than ba.2, which is what we had in december and january. we are facing a very contagious virus. we are not using the seven level of precautions we were
before. i'm being very careful. when i'm out in public and outdoors, don't worry about wearing a mask it indoors, i have a very good mask on. and 90 five. and not only a very good mask on, but a very good mask that fits very well. i want to be protected beyond what i have in the vaccines. >> that means covering the nose and the mouth like we have been talking about for two years. it is a good reminder. >> thanks for joining us. >> you're welcome. thank you. turning now to the state capital where there is support for a bill that would ban police for using dna from sexual assault examinations to incriminate victims down the road for something unrelated. now, the san francisco d.a. say the process of reporting is already very difficult without having that in the back of their minds.
>> to call the police, to submit their body to invasive evidentiary gathering process only to then have their trust in the system betrayed when law enforcement preserves their dna profile in the database and uses it for years to come for reasons totally unrelated. >> the d.a.'s office uncovered the practice in san francisco. some officers keeping dna from rape kits in the database. misusing that dna events victims from going forward. san francisco police ended that practice once it was publicly uncovered. this would ban the use statewide. sacramento's mass shooting appeared in court today. their cases continue to the end of may. one of the lawyers told reporter madison keeney they cannot tell from the state. >> reporter: damyean dotson not charged with crimes are directly related to the shooting at but he was seen
with a gun in the aftermath. he is 1 of 4 people charged after the shooting. unlike others, he has not been named at the shooter by police at this time. what we know, six people are dead and no murder charges have been filed. of the project shooters, two groups of men associated with street gang. only three have been identified. the first to be charged within 48 hours, deandre martin. he faces charges for assault with firearm and being in possession of a firearm. next, his brother, smiley martin. he spent a month hospitalized from gunshot wounds that night. now in county jail on possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun. sac pd told it was a modified handgun. nearly two weeks after the shooting, payton named as a third shooter.
he is not in custody but faces multiple felony warrants, including an april 2nd domestic violence incident on top of gun charges. >> especially as you wait without having reports. it is difficult for everyone. >> that is deandre martin's lawyer this afternoon. cameras not allowed. the court they have not seen any evidence from the state. we have asked the d.a.'s office about the protocol and why murder charges. quote, as the investigation is ongoing, our ethical obligations as prosecutors prevent us from commenting on the evidence or the initial charging decisions. >> that was medicine keeping reporting there. i live look at cisco where governor newsom joints san francisco city leaders in celebrating the city's college savings program for students. the kindergarten college program has reached $11 million in savings.
governor newsom found that when he served as san francisco's mayor. the program helps kindergartners in the city open a savings account for college. the governor lands to expand the concept in july. >> in july of this year, 3.5 million californians are going to start with a minimum of $500 in their savings account. some kids will get up to $1500 in their savings account. >> the program is called cal kids. all newborns born in california after july 1st will have savings accounts open for them. coming up, and a video of the aftermath of the shooting on the alec baldwin movie set. the chaotic moments and the actor's questioning. two a+, it is a first for a major line. coming up all new at 6:00. for east bay customers,

>> reporter: also included is a video showing baldwin rehearsing with a gun that day. this is what he later told investigators about the incident. >> i tried to cop the gun. the gun goes off. it is supposed to be a cold gun. nothing. no flash, charges, nothing. now, this is a puzzle to me and this makes me very emotional now. >> reporter: we see baldwin's and being photographed by investigators, as well as photos of guns and ammunition found on the set. we also hear baldwin's reaction after being shown an image of the projectile that injured a director. >> as suspected, some people to live around in the gun. >> reporter: more than six months later, it is still unclear what led to the fatal shooting. the investigation remains open as they analyze baldwin's cell phone data. waiting for ballistic evidence from the fbi. no criminal charges have been
filed, but the production company has been fined nearly $137,000 for safety violations. multiple civil cases have been filed against baldwin and the production company, including a wrongful suit by hutchins family. what remains unclear is how the videos will impact the cases in civil court. omar, cbs news. >> acts of violence and hate have risen to an all-time high in california and across the country. a 2021 audit by the anti- defamation league found 667 cases of anti-semitic hate. that is up 27% from the previous year. that is up by a record 34%. most of the hate incidents involve assault, harassment and vandalism. still ahead, learning how

i do about a third of it and just have a three-year cycle lock. >> let me get this straight, you can light fire on your own land and we all understand the controlled burn part of it, which is a great idea. we have seen the benefits of that. i just -- you know, i love my neighbors. but i don't know how i feel about the idea that they can just -- there has to be a little bit more to how they are going to do this and how they are going to regulate it. >> there you go. >> modest reward, high risk. >> yeah. we have seen go out of control. weather can be unpredictable, as you know. >> i guess time will tell as to whether this one is a good idea as we get into the fire season. fortunately, the rains recently have added some more the fire fueled that is running pretty much normal this time of year. we're going to see patty fogg, but it is going to be localized to start the day on wednesday.
