7:05 am
as for the nats-padres game it is expected to start again this afternoon. eva? >> that's a scary scene for so many people there. elizabeth, thank you for that story. now to our other top story, the pandemic situationve as chen in the parts of the u.s. enjoy the last days of summer vacation, and get ready to head back to school. and a new year of uncertainty. the delta variant more concerning than ever. abc's trevor ault live with us this morning. >> reporter: good morning. less than half the country is really starting to see the - fruits of hesitancy create dangerous environments once again. we're seeing now a worrying rise in cases across much of the country, almost all of it, and now hospitalizations are swinging back up as well. this morning an alarming rise in covid-19 cases across the overwhelming majority of the country. 49 states and territories recording increases of at least 10%. some hospitals filling up their icus once again.
7:06 am
>> we're back to being at capacity as far as our covid beds are concerned. >> reporter: in texas three lawmakers who recently traveled to the nation's capitol have now tested positive for the virus despite being fully vaccinated. and arkansas now the highest case rate per capita in the country with vaccinations lagging behind the national average. but the national upswing in covid cases is not deterring summertime travelers. the tsa screening nearly 2.2 million people friday even while the new variant impacts people of all age groups. in colorado the lux family says they lost their 15-year-old daughter casey to the delta variant in may. she was hospitalized before she was eligible for the vaccine. >> i'm still having a hard time believing what happened. you shouldn't have to lose your own kid. >> reporter: now many of the nation's parents looking ahead to in-person learning and new rules this coming school year. in arizona the chandler unified school district returns wednesday with masks optional.
7:07 am
>> make them optional for the summer school and then upcoming school year, but we'll have very strong protocols in place. those include awareness of illnesses and things like social distancing up to 3 feet and no large group gatherings in the meantime. >> reporter: and so far the vaccines have been given under emergency use authorization, but dr. anthony fauci says he expects the pfizer vaccine to likely receive full approval in august, though he's still not expecting children to get their shots until the winter. >> and joining us now is the director of the national institutes of health, dr. francis khan. thanks so much for being with us. let's start with a look at the vaccination rate right now. less than 50% of the u.s. population is fully vaccinated. we're about to begin the second school year of this pandemic and still children under 12 aren't being vaccinated, so i think a lot of parents are wondering how safe is it for students, teachers and their families as they go back to school?
7:08 am
>> well, going back to school is a really good thing. we know younger kids have suffered a lot as a consequence of social isolation, so every effort ought to be made to make it possible to be back in person. unfortunately, though, that means for kids under 12 who can't yet be vaccinated, we have to be careful about that and that will mean wearing masks and maintaining that 3 foot distance. even though people aren't crazy about it it's the safest way to make sure we don't have outbreaks. certainly those 12 and over get vaccinated. my grandchildren have done so. they find this a wonderful, liberating thing. they can get together with their friends and do sleepovers and all that. as long as their around other vaccinated people. it's troubling the uptake in that group from 12 to 17 has not been higher than it has, because this is such a good thing to get done before the fall school season. >> you mention the masks. the rules vary by location. los angeles county just started requiring masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.
7:09 am
so what would you tell parents about masks in schools right now knowing that not every school is going to require students to wear those masks? >> well, i think we should follow cdc's guidelines. they work really hard to come up with what makes the most sense but then recognize that individual communities may have a different view especially if they're in the midst of a rather big outbreak and they want to be especially careful as los angeles is right now. basically to be safe, if there is spread in your community and you're not vaccinated and you're indoors, you should be wearing a mask. and hence the reason to try to request that kids under 12 do that also. i know people are sick of masks. i am, too. but this virus is not done with us. in fact, this delta virus is really a cause of greater concern. this is not last year's virus. and now when you see cases going up as you documented they are in almost every state, we've been to this movie before and we don't like the ending. and if we want to try to stop what is turning out to be a
7:10 am
surge again, we all got to get involved. get vaccinated if you haven't been already. if you're not vaccinated right now, wear a mask when you're indoors with other people. you might be the one who's spreading it to other individuals. you don't want to do that. >> and dr. fauci said yesterday he thinks the fda's full approval of the pfizer vaccine could come by the end of next month. so many people waiting for that full approval to happen. so far it's only been authorized for emergency use. so what would this earl approval really mean? >> it would be a good thing. some people are i think a little reluctant until they've seen that full approval. i don't think there's any doubt in the minds of most us that's going to be granted, but we have been waiting. fda has been working 24/7 on this. that might just be one more thing for people on the fence to say, okay, it's time, i'm going to roll-up my sleeve. but don't wait for that. when you look at the information
7:11 am
that's out in the public areas, the benefits of this are profound. and when you ask people who are in the hospital right now who are unvaccinated, do you wish you've gotten the shot, almost all of them say, yeah, i wish i had. so don't wait and become one of those folks. >> welcome news to see that full approval finally happening. dr. collins, thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate you. to tokyo this morning and the new covid cases detected in the olympic village. abc's james longman is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, terrell. it is a battle here in tokyo, a battle to keep coronavirus out of the olympics, but every day we're hearing about new cases. two foreign athletes have tested positive inside the olympic village. if they have to quarantine for two weeks, that is going to derail their olympic games. we also heard about the first ioc official to test positive, this is a person who came in from south korea, they were immediately quarantined and now in a quarantine facility also for two weeks. and this person we know is double vaccinated. the ioc is keeping a daily tally
7:12 am
of positive cases. it's now at 55, that's a combination of foreign visitors and locals. but the ioc says it's proof their detection system works but thoundofeoe ming to their city which is under a state of emergency and seeing the highest number of covid cases in six months. >> as you noted those games just days away. all right, james longman for us right there in tokyo, thank you. meanwhile back here at home president biden vowing to fight back after a federal judge in texas ruled the daca program is unlawful. the program protects undumed immigrants who came to the united states as children. the president saying the justice department will appeal the ruling. in the meantime the department of homeland security says it will keep processing requests for renewals for people already in that daca program. so for more on all this let's bring in abc's political director rick klein. good morning to you. always great to have you on a
7:13 am
sunday. let's start with that judge's ruling against the daca program. president biden calls it deeply disappointing. he's calling on congress now to act. how urgent is this issue for the biden administration now? >> whit, this rockets the issue to the top of an already overcrowded agenda joe biden is trying to get through congress. think about the impact of it. it is staggering. no new applicants to the program at all. suddenly legal questions about the potential status moving forward of more than 6,000 people. many of whom have depended on this program for more than a decade. the preferred solution for democrats and republicans has long been legislation, but it gets caught up over and over again in the complicated politics around immigration reform and around border policies that have nothing to do with the status of hese folks, these young people. and that's why joe biden is trying to now add this to the budget deal now working its way through congress. but of course that is already an enormous piece of legislation with a lot of moving parts. that's a risky strategy.
7:14 am
to pin that much on it, it's difficult procedurely, and it's difficult politically. >> let's go ahead and switch to those partisan battles happening in washington this week from infrastructure to voting rights to cuba, the administration's agenda increasingly crowded. is there concern time might be running out on some of these top important issues? >> yes, there is wit. -- whit. and right now we're looking at a potential make-or-break week or several weeks on the agenda. the bipartisan infrastructure and voting recognizes that gets moved to the side. there hasn't been a lot of progress there. some of the foreign policy challenges adding in immigration. all of these things are collapsing on biden and the white house. now biden has prided himself on his ability to set the agenda to keep that slower pace in washington, but things are going to pick up quite a bit in these next couple of weeks. at least that's the hope among democrats in the white house that this is their prime slatei
