But local and state leaders have had to institute changing restrictions. As the pandemic progresses. Political leaders, particularly in the states, including California have really struggled to come up with the right kind of response. It's something that obviously that really threatens our health but also our economy. Larry Gerston Santos, a State university political science professor emeritus and KCBS political analyst, says it doesn't help when some state and local officials or dining out at the French laundry while we're staying at home. And how will history judge those leaders who said the virus was a hoax? Or just like the flu? Medical science has been telling this from the get go from the very, very beginning and yes, at the end of the day. The folks who disagreed with it will probably have some blame. Tomo Baird.

So what does the approval of the cove in 19 vaccine actually mean for frontline health care workers, the modern a vaccine that is likely be able to double the amount of people that we were playing some back to me.

The Madonna vaccine is expected to arrive here in California early next week. This week that is, officials have begun to roll out distribution of the Fizer vaccine and the Madonna vaccine, of course, right behind it, But the main focus is on vaccinating health care workers and seniors. So where do Children and teenagers fall on the priority list case? CBS's Dan Mitchinson reports. The reason why those 16 and under aren't yet getting a shot because we don't know whether it works and whether it's safe for them. Doctor Henry Greely is director at the Center for Law and the Bio Sciences at Stanford University. He says kids can't be lumped in with older test subjects. Kids aren't just little adults. They're different, both in terms of what works well, and what kind of side effects you get. So a new trial that includes teenagers is underway now and the one after that will likely include Children even younger. As for win a vaccine for them will be available.

My rules, says Brett Coburn, a labor and employment partner with Alston and Bird As a legal matter, yes, the company can require employees to get back soon. There may be some medical or religious exemptions, he says. And that's where this all gets tricky. What if half your company uses those exemptions to outright safe? No, it's really going to put employers in a bind, and that's the question I'm getting on. Think people's look, you need to think long and hard. Are you willing to terminate that big chunk of your workforce of people refused to get the vaccine under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission companies are allowed to require employees to be vaccinated for the flu. This vaccine is new on unknown. So, Coburn says.

What to watch for when Kamala Harris questions Amy Coney Barrett at her nomination hearing this week
"National attention for her hard hitting questions in the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of brat Brett Kavanaugh on two years ago, A lot of the Democratic focus is on Senator Kamala Harris. Once again is hearings begin. Tomorrow for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett case. CBS's Dan Mitchinson Talk more about that with Dr Stephen Wolpert, professor of politics at ST Mary's. College and an expert in the U. S Constitution, the Supreme Court and California politics. So what do you think we'll expect from senator and vice presidential hopeful Harris. Well, she will be obviously under heightened scrutiny, so I expect her to treat this as a campaign event. She will probably continue her prosecutorial style of questioning. She'll be direct and persistent and focused. But she can't afford to be seen as disrespectful towards Judge Barrett or angry, Um, so she probably won't be quite as forceful as she was when she Uh, grilled Cavanaugh about requesting an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault. No, the president said. I thought she was the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful or anybody in the U. S senate when that happened a couple of years ago. Yeah. So what you could do, she could still push back if Judge Barrett equivocates in her statements or emits omits relevant information about her background or her writings. But I expect her to stay far away from there. It's religious views and affiliations. Instead, I would not be surprised if she if Harris doesn't highlight ways in which Judge barrettes judicial philosophy threatens policies that are popular with voters like the Affordable Care Act. And what I call the pelvic issues, contraception, sexual orientation and abortion. So that is the way she could still look like she's fighting for liberal causes without being disrespectful. Well, it really is Ah balancing act because not only is she running for VP, but she's a committee member, so I I would imagine. She's also going to be concerned about not being attacked by Republicans during this confirmation hearing as well as the issue of being disrespectful that you just brought up Well, I'm sure that Republicans will be looking for any opportunity to criticize her because again, this is a campaign event. So, um, as much as the focus should be on Judge Barrett. To a large extent. It'll be partly on the philosophy of the nomination, but also on the timing of the nomination, which is also unpopular with voters. So it's possible that Harris might ask Judge Baird if she would recuse herself on cases involving election dispute concerning the president. Or whether she might recused herself on cases involving abortion, given her past writings and so forth. So there are ways in which she can be critical and cast the nomination in an unfavorable light for the Republicans, and the Republicans will try to turn the tables on her for sure. And if you talked to just about any Republican and we've talked to a number in recent weeks, they say they have the votes. This confirmation could move through in record time. Do you agree? Yes, they have the votes barring some outbreak of covert 19 among the members, they're already a couple of Republicans who are ill. But a CZ long as they're able to vote. They have the votes and they intend to proceed as fast as they can. And there's only a limited number of steps that the Democrats can take to try to slow things down. By leveraging rules and procedures, but I don't think that they're going to be successful in preventing a vote. Let me ask you before we let you go. Then if you're Republican, why would you want to focus on Harris and just not try to ignore her and focus On. Ah, Amy Cockney Barrett. Because they're trailing in almost all the polls and especially in the swing states, so their their campaign to keep the White House is in trouble, and, in fact, their chances of Keeping control of the Senate are also in doubt. So it's more important. I think, since they're probably going to be able to get her there, it confirmed, so the more important job now is to try to change the diamond dynamics of the Presidential election.
National security experts describe a distracted and potentially vulnerable country
"President Trump's hospitalization raises not only health concerns, but national security concerns. More now from KCBS is Dan Mitchinson. The country is in a vulnerable situation, says former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Anytime president is ill or incapacitated. National security implications are involved. Panetta tells me. That means other countries China, Russia and Iran, all three of which the U. S has tangled with during the Trump administration. Could see the president's illness as an opportunity. They might exploit that situation in a way that could further undermine our stability. But Panetta is also concerned about the information coming out of the White House and what we're being told or not told about the president's condition. You've got a white house that isn't that forthright. About what is taking place, and that creates a certain element of distrust. That's the reason it makes a hell of a lot of sense just to be forthright to be transparent. And to present the honest truth to the American people
India passes Brazil to become the second worst-hit country by the pandemic with more than 4.2 million cases
"India is now surpassing Brazil as Thie. Second worst Corona virus hit country with cases topping 4.2 million In contrast, New York State is showing progress with the rate of positive test staying below 1% for 30 straight days for more K C. B s news anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Dr Amesh Ayala, senior scholar, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security Doctor. What's happened in India? What do you think is contributing to this case, Serge? You have to remember that social distancing is the way we keep cases from spreading and social distancing is a luxury in many parts of the world in a place that has a population of over a billion people where you have people that live in close quarters and multigenerational household where There's a lot of use of mass transit. It's just going to be very hard to keep a virus that spreads this efficiently from moving through your population. So to me, it's not surprising what's happening in India. I think it's uh this is going to be something that we see in the developing world. This is going to be very hard to control. Well. The prime minister did order all businesses shut down earlier this year, didn't he when this started, but I mean, it hit the economy so hard that they've had to start re opening a lot of these businesses. Again. Yes, you can't. You cannot completely shut down people's productivity and not have consequences. So it's not surprising that in places where they don't have a lot of accumulated wealth, But there's not a lot of saving that people cannot. Tolerate a stay at home order for that long of a period of time and what the goal really should be is not necessarily economic shutdown and stay at home orders but targeted public health intervention, testing, tracing and isolating You need to have health infrastructure to be able to do that. And it's clear that some countries do not have it. And even in countries that do like United states, we still can't really executed that. Well. Yeah, you can tell a billion 1.3 billion people to stay at home. How does the mortality rate they'll compare with the U. S. I think it's hard to know exactly what we don't have full, full data capture there. But one of the things that the mortality rate you have to look at it. What is the rate of death of individuals who were hospitalized there? It's going to be higher than in the United States in terms of if you if you're treated their how effective are the treatment? How much access to critical care do you have? And we know that there are places in the world that don't have the same. Adeptness medical care as his other parts, so you will probably see higher rates of death for those who get hospitalized. However, the total population that was a little bit more complicated because that will affect that will be impacted by the age of the population of morbid conditions of the population. But I do suspect we will see the deaths rise. Teo Teo high levels in the developing world because of the lack of access to health care, and the fact that this is going to go through their populations in away unabated by any kind of social distance.

Five of which happened since last Thursday. As KCBS reporter Holly Kwon tells us the pandemic has kept them from doing the kind of violence prevention and gang intervention that kept things quiet. In the past, interim chief Susan Mannheimer gathered her command staff near the corner of 86th and Holly Streets where a man was found shot to death inside a crashed car early Sunday.

These 186 calls or not simply called Nding these 186 people who are waiting for us as we are tied up with this serious crime, shootings and violence. The shelter in place means you can't hold community forums or knock on people's doors for a sit down with a local officer. We're seeing gang and group violence conflicts. And we have to really look at some new methods of outreach.

She said She wanted to run for Senate at the time. But times have changed, And perhaps she might have changed her mind. She's getting advice from some Democrats that she might consider turning down the VP job because the attorney general job at this point could be more consequential. Willie Brown, who former San Francisco mayor said in his column on Sunday that he thought, uh, right right now, there's nobody left important than the vice president. I mean, as he said, Ask Mike Pence so that nobody thinks the vice president is a really influential job. But the attorney general, ah could have a long to do list ahead and that could include prosecuting Trump in the trump family law enforcement reform, Other issues related tio inspector generals and other things that the Trump administration has done and Democrats I think may be cheering that on, so we'll see how it plays out. But certainly Kamala Harris has a lot of different possibilities. But right now it looks like she may be at the top of the list or very close to it when it comes to Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee, But let me ask you this. I mean, Biden is gonna have a lot of California locked in the rest of the country, not necessarily a big fan of our state. Do you think a VP from here would hurt or help him then? That's been a debate Janet, But the fact is Kamala Harris has huge name recognition in the rest of the country. The You don't want the advice presidential nominee to do any harm. But in commonly Harrison's case, she could help in helping deliver some of those states where you need to rev up the Democratic base of progressive base. She had those followers right. She had a presidential campaign that brought her to all of those swing states. And so many voters know her out there more than some of the other women on the list. That doesn't mean, however, that people like Karen Bass, perhaps the House member from Los Angeles, Uh, Susan Rice, former ambassador and Tammy Duckworth's, uh, the senator from Illinois who is highly thought of this well couldn't be part of the mix as well. But how tough would this be for not only Biden but for Harris if she decides to run in four years if Biden's only in there for one or even in eight to move into the White House when we have a pandemic going on, and an economic recession? Yeah, you've actually hit on it and that some of the reasons why we've heard some doubts about Kamala Harris being mentioned the fact that she's ambitious. She clearly wants to run for president in some point And the go by in vice presidential nominee is in effect giving a leg up to whoever wants to do that It is effective primary in a way for the for the next presidential contest. Many Democrats would believe that that May hurt Joe Biden in some respects because they may want not wantto help. Comma. Harris is much when it comes to pushing legislation in Washington because they won't want to advance her chances. There's going to be a lot of Democrats who want to run for president, Uh, in 2024. So at this point, Yeah, Connell, Harris and her future plans and her future ambitions have all been part of the mix. It's why some Democrats say she may be the best choice for Joe Biden. Alright, Gotta run real quick. Will she be offered the the VP, And if she is, will she take it? He'll take it if she's offered, Will she be offered? That's the $1,000,000 question right now. That's Carla Marinucci, senior writer for political Oh California playbook.
Former "Ellen" Producer Speaks Out Against Show's Culture
"Talk talk show show host, host, Ellen Ellen did did generous, generous, continues continues to to come come under under fire fire for for what what many who worked for her called the show's toxic work environment. Staff have claimed she's not the happy go lucky person we see on TV and is, in fact anything but kind to employees, telling them not to look at her or talk to her ever. Hey, CBS's Dan Mitchinson spoke Mohr about it with Hedda Muscat. She's the show's first producer and Grammy Award winner. Why speak out now? Because I was asked. I did not seek this attention at all. I've laid low for 16 years and then the entertainment community when people have asked me on all the other shows I've worked on after that from America's got talent. I launched that. Two other shows, including Hot bench with Judge Judy People would ask me my bought, my new bosses would ask me. So what was it really like working with Alan and I always said fine. Fine because I didn't want to put that by about there. I had moved on already. But the media approached me about two weeks ago, Buzz feed, and they disclosed to me that there were over 50 people that they spoke to at that point, and nobody wanted to come forward with their name. And I said, Why And they said, because people are afraid I said, Well, I'm not afraid anymore. If you want to use my name, go for it. I mean, you were the first tires on the show when it started. What was the environment like back then? He was saying the exact same Ellen is the cold person. But here's what you have to understand. I didn't I'm not complaining because she was cold. I'm complaining because that attitude that she exhibited in the office which I say cold, indifferent, aloof, very disinterested in what I was doing. I was human interest producer. So the show was really relying heavily on all these human interest segments. She had no interest to have an understanding of the story that I was pitching her the story that we got approved. Finally, you know with the other MPs. Everybody had to approve. The story should know interest when I was trying to brief her on what the guest you know was going to be doing and my many of my segment's fell flat. Because of her disinterest in them. If you weren't an a list celebrity, she wasn't really couldn't care less, But once it affect your work, the quality of your work and your segments, then that becomes very toxic, and it's very difficult to deal with. I'm very strong person. You know a lot of the newspapers I noticed in the UK were saying, Oh, she's just soft. We're not soft. People were very aggressive in the way we book Our guests were looking for that news breaking, you know, first right exclusive story we can handle. Helen's coldness, but what we can't handle is when it starts affecting the quality of our work. As I understand it. Ah lot of employees. Maybe most employees had to sign a non disclosure, Did you Yes. And are you breaking it by talking to us? I don't know. I don't care if I'm in my sixties now, you know, asked me 10 years ago. You had probably care. I don't care anymore. You know, the media asked me. You know what? I go public with my name because everybody was afraid. And I was Sure why not? And I'm doing this for a bigger reason to have a daughter, who also is making her way in the work environment. She's only in her twenties, and I just just like the meat to movement. Change the culture. Of how women are treated in the workplace. Hopefully, black lives matter. Huge. Hopefully that will continue continue making amazing changes in our society. I'm hoping that this is you know the whole toxic work culture changes, too, because we can't do our jobs effectively when you work for someone who allows her co M P. Ed Glavin to go off on people in a rage she witnessed. I was in the room when she went when Ed would go off in a rage with veins bulging and she would laugh and say. Oh, every production needs its dog. But we knew that we were going to be at the receiving end of that screaming rant at one point so we can handle it. It's not like Oh, gosh, poor us. It's just that her mantra of be kind is so fake, and I think that's what disgusts me so much don't do that. How it's turned to them have to go. Be kind. We know who he is. I work for Simon Cowell's And he was amazing to work with very tough, very abrupt but to the point but professional and it made me a better producer. There's nothing that I can take away from the Ellen Show that made me a better producer. Okay, we only have. Unfortunately, about 30 seconds left to go. I want to ask you these claims of sexual harassment. Was this going on back then, when you started with the show I don't know. I wouldn't know that I was an older woman there. I would not know what went on behind closed doors. But if my colleagues they're saying it, I believe it. And now that this has all come out in the open. Do you think this is going to be the end of the show? I would like to see it be the end of the show. Yes. And that was had a Muscat, former producer with E. Ellen de generous show that wasn't exclusive with K CBS anchor Dan
