6:23 pm
research. >> covid is a pandemic but we have fight -- we have been fighting the cancer pandemic for years. reporter: a new technology is being heralded as a potential game changer in the fight against cancer. leading the charge is a menlo park-based company called grail which is helped develop a new flood test that can detect up to 50 different types of cancer and wants. many of which are not routinely check. >> we cannot win this war by screening one cancer at a time. reporter: the doctor works at grail and says the way gallery works is by analyzing dna in the blood to determine whether or not cancer cells are present. >> we have known for a long time that cancer cells shared -- shed dna into the blood but it has taken a lot of time for the technology to get to a point where we can do this in a specific and sensitive way. reporter: it is not just grail who is excited about the benefits. local experts say the technology could change the game for how we
6:24 pm
detect cancer. and that early detection could make a world of difference for patient outcome. >> it may be the difference between a curable cancer. -- between a curable cancer and a noncurable cancer. if they are left in the body for long enough they may start to spread. reporter: he says while technology like this is a major step forward, at this point in time it should still be treated as a supplemental tool used by doctors. >> people should definitely still be doing the screening tests recommended by their doctors to detect cancers early, like mammograms and other testing for different types of cancers. reporter: the gallery tested by prescription only and currently costs a little less than $1000. but grail is working hard to make it more universally accessible as time goes on. >> we're very committed to doing whatever we can to reduce the
6:25 pm
cost, make this accessible to populations who did not have access today so that we can have an impact in the communities where cancer is a real issue. ama: that is so fascinating. dan: it is. could save a lot of lives if it works. it has only been a week since the vaccination of five to 11-year-old children began in the bay area. tonight, a look at what could help some of the more reluctant kids overcome their fears. >> ok, get this. now thousands have to wait six months for the unemployment benefits. why? i have the

>> building a better bay area. moving forward. finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. dan: the edd's notorious backlol of unemployment claims has dropped to about 77,000 cases, far fewer than the one million-plus from last year. but now more delays. ama: thousands have to wait up to six months just for an interview and cannot get benefits until then.
6:29 pm
the edd director herself as calling the delay completely unacceptable. dan: it has posed a real hardship for a lot of people including a northbay mother and her little girl. they were on the verge of homelessness when they came to us for help. michael: this is the latest frustration with edd. when it was flooded with claims last year the edd stopped requiring interviews so it could get money out faster but that contributed to rapid fraud. now interviews are back, but folks have to wait as long as half a year to get one. it caused frantic moments for a single mom and her six-year-old daughter. >> tell me about the picture. >> i love you mom and dad. michael: they were doing fine during the pandemic. while millions were thrown out of work, she had a job and medical billing. until this past april. she got laid off. >> i was taken aback.
6:30 pm
i did not expect it because i had worked all through covid. michael: right away she applied for unemployment thinking benefits would arrive in a couple weeks. >> that couple weeks turned into a couple months and then my savings ran out. thank god pg&e did not turn off anything. michael: ddd told her she would have to wait for a phone interview to see if she was eligible. >> they are running behind on interviews by 46 weeks. this was in june. -- four to six weeks in june. >> these interviews are now scheduled 26 weeks out which is completely unacceptable. michael: the edd director admitted to state lawmakers the wait time for interviews is now six months. she said only 15% of claims have raised questions that require interviews. the rest are paid right away. >> that is no comfort for the people who are waiting. >> it was really scary because i was thinking oh my gosh, how my going to pay the rent?
6:31 pm
i was going to lose my home again. michael: she applied for jobs but nothing came through. she kept calling the edd. >> we are currently receiving more calls than we can answer. try again later. >> i was at my wits end. i was pretty helpless at that point. it was super scary. michael: then she saw our stories, hoping folks get their benefits. >> it gave me that glimmer of hope like, ok, there's a possibility i am not going to be homeless. michael: we got help from her state representative jim frazier, and she got an interview. then, a breakthrough. >> i got a notification there was a payment and i just said, what? michael: all of her payments came in. >> i cried and i thank god and i cried. that is all i could do. i am not going to be homeless. there is no way i can thank you guys enough. michael: you just did. it took six months for her to get paid.
6:32 pm
even the edd director is unhappy with what is going on. the wait time should ease up, at least that is what we are being told. the number of new claims is half what it was in april, and the edd has hired hundreds of workers to conduct interviews to clear up the backlog. so, maybe i will no longer report on this. dan: let's hope. you have been on it since the beginning and maybe we will see some changes. ama: another show of labor unrest by kaiser permanente employees. nurses held an informational picket across the bay area including this one in one not creek. the nurses say they are upset over a program kaiser calls medically home which provides home for -- care for a patient in their home rather than a hospital. >> it is disturbing because we know as nurses that these patients are safer with us than at home. >> they are doing it to save money. if they can send us out to contract agencies, use nonunion labor, just have someone stop by for one hour. ama: kaiser released a statement
6:33 pm
saying the program is not focused on cost savings, adding there are no plans to limit the role of nurses at any hospital or facility. the picket comes as kaiser engineers are currently on strike. pharmacists are planning a walk out as well. it can be a tough sell to get younger children vaccinated. a creative way to address that is being developed in san jose with a focus on reaching out to underserved communities. david louis tells us about how free museum tickets might overcome the fear of getting a shot. david: a visit to the children's discovery museum in san jose can be an educational and fun experience. it could also be a way to entice the five to 11-year-olds to get vaccinated. >> for parents, it is a much easier thing to tell your children you are going to get a vaccination but we are all going to the museum together. that is a much easier selling point. david: the executive director thought what a great way to overcome kids's reluctance about shots.
6:34 pm
she shared the idea with the health trust who have agreed to help underwrite the cost of free museum tickets for the entire family. those tickets for nonmembers normally cost $15 per child. >> we put low income households, undocumented residents, communities of color, those who are the most vulnerable, we put them at the center and this is what this pop-up will be doing. david: details are still being worked out, with a golden stage the pop-up event possibly in early december. it's an innovative approach to turn a potentially intimidating process to one that will lead to higher rates of immunization. >> the vaccination rates are lower among medi-cal families. so we have decided to work together to try and market this opportunity heavily to those families. david: a recent study indicated black and hispanic students 12 to 17 years old in santa clara county have a vaccination rate much lower than white and asian students. so museum pop-upa --

9-1 hosting the timberwolves. curry coming off a 50 point, 10 e thing that has changed is steve kerr altering his minutes, playing in times he would normally be resting. steph says he's not thrilled with the changes but it has given the warriors warriors a chance to see what and who works best at different points in the game. >> we are still trying to figure out his rotation. i have talked to him about it and we are experimenting with a few things because part of it is that we are looking at a lot of different combinations overall. and i want to see him as part of some of them. so i have not really done him any favors in the early part of the season in terms of helping him get into rhythm. larry: baseball news, brandon belt had a terrific season for the giants, hit 29 home runs. the giants would like to bring him back and offered him an $18 million qualifying author.

the giants met with his representatives today, discussing several possible contract formats. you have to think they would prefer a long-term deal. the story that continues, massive frustration from the cal football team and berkeley public officials. some cal players felt they should have been allowed to play last weekend. 24 players held out but the health department fired back saying the team did not follow protocols and the result was 44 positive tests within the football program. berkeley public health said those in the program did not get tested when they were sick, did not stay home, and did not wear masks. the bears say 99% of the team is vaccinated. so how did so many people test positive? we'll probably never know because of privacy rules. we do know the usc game was pushed back to december 4. stricter rules will be put in place with regard to groups and practice and meals.

coach justin wilcox a short time ago trying to focus on football, following this being the only major covid postponement in all of college football. >> i have never had a meeting regarding the egregious non- compliance of our players. do we have to remind people from time to time to put their mask on? have i been told that? yeah, absolutely. i would also think maybe there are folks in the city of berkeley walking down the street or going to church or dinner or whatever and maybe students on campus that might fall into the same category. i cannot confirm that but i would think that is probably likely. larry: clearly coach did not think there were egregious non-compliance issues within his program. the sharks had a major covid issue of their own after a two week wait. they should get their head coach and five key players back by the end of the week. he said his parents were staying with him in san jose when he came up positive, so he had to stay in a hotel. the sharks went 3-1-1 in his

absence. >> thank god for the vaccines, because it worked. i did not get sick, and i could still manage my day and go on fairly normal. larry: desean jackson was looking for a team and the raiders have a need for speed. the former counts star signing with the silver and black after being released by the rams. the tragic accident left a void jackson hopes to fill in vegas, a receiver who can still outrun almost everybody even at 34. jackson in a raiders jersey seems like a good fit for both at this point. >> my first nfl game i was at a raider game at the coliseum. it's crazy, the cheese replaying the raiders and i was on the sideline. i was probably like seven years old. larry: desean jackson has pretty much been the fastest player on every football field since he was in high school. and that remains true to this day in his mid-30's. going to beat 35 -- to be 35.
