8:32 pm
treatments today that we didn't have a year ago. we have home diagnostic tests that we didn't have year ago. we have a society that is fronting a lot better than it was a year ago. so all in all, we're in much better shape than we were years ago. >> that said, >> will we ever be rid of covid? will it one day be reduced to something? >> as benign as the common cold? >> yeah, does the right introductory phrase, isn't it? it's going to be a long time before sars-cov 2, the virus that causes covid will be gone. i think we have to plan on living with this for a long, long time. that said, think that we're going to be living with it better and better as time passes. are sciences grown in 2 and a half years. what it normally would have taken maybe 15 years to grow. vaccines are truly one
8:33 pm
of the miracles of modern science in there were advancing with those and we're dancing with newer and better therapeutics. so i think we'll be able to control this virus. lot better. but predicting with this virus does and we'll do has been very problematic for all of us. we've really been chasing this virus since the beginning. and frankly, we're continuing to chase it as it spins off new variants and subvariants that we're sitting here tonight. worry, is there going to be a brand new variant coming down the pike sometime this summer or the fall? >> you teach courses on vaccine hesitancy. obviously the news today with the youngest kids are the 6 months to to 4 years being all likelihood eligible starting next week. what is your message to parents who might be hesitant to get their young kids vaccinated, especially given, you know, the positive outcome. if if kids get covid in most cases. >> yeah. i think let's
8:34 pm
underline the word most and really focus on that for a moment. it is absolutely true that children in general don't get nearly a sick as older adults and even younger adults. it's also true that children don't get hospitalized to the same extent or die to the same extent. but unfortunately, children do get sick. children do suffer from one covid children. do get hospitalized at a rate far exceeding anything we've seen with influenza respiratory syncytial virus to other important pathogens. the children are and tragically, we've seen more deaths from covid in shook and children, even childran less than the age of 5. then we see with influencer syncytial virus and other viruses. so this vaccine. will be the guards into those parents and they're quite a few of them who have been waiting and waiting and waiting not just to protect their children, but also to

8:36 pm
that that we've been dealing with. it was in march of 2021. we locked here in the bay area. the first large metropolitan area to lock so we're exhausted with it. the big shift in the last year has been from public health, telling us, but we have to do mandates 2 personal responsibility. here's what you should do. the public health public health doctors stress what you should be doing. but removing the mandates has for a lot of people that the message that well, i can just go back and live like i was before. and a lot of people are doing that. and that is one of the things that is fueling the surge that we're in right now. going to continue to cause more cases, more hospitalizations and more deaths. i think people need to be very careful and recognize that there's an awful lot of covid around the bay area. he's doing worse in this surge that done. in any other search
8:37 pm
compared to others. other cities, including southern california, so we have to be remain very vigilant. i, for example, where mass confined indoors, for example, at the grocery store, it would be really careful not to get this >> this is just pair of covid. it seems like everybody we know. has covid or he's gotten covid. even people who are really meticulous very careful. it is just really out there, >> doctor fauci today, we heard about sure, you the numbers that we see reported probably represent various a small percentage will be about 8%. of the actual number of cases are occurring. that's because in large part, so many people are testing at home and those tests are getting reported. what you just said, what i've observed 2. practically everybody is getting covid right now. unfortunately, we're not
8:38 pm
seeing a lot of deaths and we're not seeing an awful lot of hospitalization. but hospitalizations are starting to creep up. >> we have to leave it there. unfortunately, we'll talk in a year certainly before then and see where we are that hopefully it's better that that it was now. and last year, infectious disease specialist doctor john schwartzberg with uc berkeley. really appreciate your time. doctor swartzberg. >> thank you, i think you stay safe. you to have a good evening. >> local food bank is helping out families get access to meals here, how they're serving the community right after the break. >> and skies mostly clear around the bay area right now. couple patches of fog forming along the coastline. big changes to come. we'll talk changes to come. we'll talk about it coming up next. meet three moms who each like to bank their own way. luckily they've all got chase. smart bankers.
