4:05 pm
charges. >> the arrests they made were for offenses already committed. warrants from other departments as well. the homicide charge is forthcoming. >> the chief says help from the community was credible -- critical. the da will determine who will receive the roughly $32,000 reward. >> in the coming days, i feel confident the district attorney will charge this case and we will be able to come will pour the public -- come before the public and say these three individuals were responsible for the murder. >> the department says they have no reason to believe the murder was anything more than a crime of opportunity. but expect more clarity once the third suspect is arrested. >> our investigation continues. once we are ready to apprehend the third suspect and charge all

4:07 pm
latest of elements, dr. patel. happy holidays. >> happy holidays to you. kristen: big news, right? the antiviral pill, is it a game changer? is it good news? >> it is right in the middle. it is good news and it is a game changer in terms of one more tool we have to prevent severe illness and death. which is important. but, you've heard me say this 1000 times, preventing people getting to that point is what we are literally -- what we really want to do. there's a lot more to this equation, but this is welcome news. kristen: you mentioned the booster. california now requiring health care workers to get the booster. do you think we should start thinking of getting fully vaccinated is three shots? should we stop using the term booster? >> absolutely.
4:08 pm
i stopped using it weeks ago because i don't see reason to suggest this is a booster and not just part of a three dose series. we have seen data, we have seen the protection. we are waiting for the cdc to make formal recommendations and say hey, fully vaccinated means all three shots. that way there can be more mandates and regulations reflecting that. right now a lot of people say we can require two shots, but the booster we can't. that needs to change. kristen: isn't israel beginning a fourth? >> israel is. we tend to follow what israel is doing. i don't want to get there yet because we still have only 30% or so of people who have gotten the booster. kristen: a medical advisor to the airlines now say you are two to three times likely to get infected now flying with omicron. is that true? what do we do?
4:09 pm
>> it does make sense in terms of omicron being more contagious. what i would be curious to see with respect to this comment is that it is actually from the airplane itself, or is it from transit to the airport, eating in the airport, going to the bathroom, there are lots of point of contact where people may let their guard down. if you are doing what you can come of that is honestly the best scenario. if you are vaccinated and boosted and you are flying to see your family, that is plenty safe to protect everyone around you. kristen: delta and jetblue have written to the cdc to suggest they cut in half the current 10 days of isolation rule for breaker cases. they say it is not necessary. i am curious what you think about that. that applies to a letter -- a lot of other settings too.
4:10 pm
how long do you really need to isolate? >> i think this needs to be addressed. especially if someone tests positive for sars-cov-2, which is different from symptomatic covid-19, they don't have cysts -- symptoms and they feel fine for that needs to be revisited. recommendations have changed. there are people out there who can't afford to take time off work, but they will test positive. the company will say you can't come in until you get a negative test. and then they are waiting in line 4, 5, 6 hours. not everyone can do that. this would also cut into a health care shortage. if someone is out of a busy icu for 10 days. this needs to be revisited as we start moving into conversations about when this becomes and then make. kristen: i want to ask you about dr. fauci, saying he would ask on vaccinated relatives not to come. >> if you are in a position
4:11 pm
where you must have an unvaccinated relative in your house for whatever reason, tests, masks, antigen test's and open dialogue are important. i am strict. i have an unprotected young baby. if you are on vaccinated, you do not get to see her. kristen: thank you so much. >> thank you. dan: more covid coverage coming up including a san francisco restaurant that will soon require proof of booster. tears of joy in san leandro, the special surprise included in the toy giveaway. fighting covid with robots. the south bay company that could be key to getting people back in their offices.
