The last-minute decision to send 3,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan to help partially evacuate the U.S. Embassy is calling into question whether President Joe Biden will meet his Aug. 31 deadline for fully withdrawing combat forces.
A federal judge is refusing landlords' request to put the Biden administration's new eviction moratorium on hold, though she made clear she thinks it's illegal. U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich on Friday said her "hands are tied" by an appellate ruling the last time courts considered the evictions moratorium in the spring. In discussing the new moratorium last week, President Joe Biden acknowledged there were questions about its legality, but said a court fight over the new CDC order would buy time for the distribution of some of the $45 billion in rental assistance that has been approved but not yet used. Plus: Andy will have the latest on the Biden administration's decision to send U.S. troops into Kabul in a temporary deployment to speed evacuation flights for some American diplomats and thousands of Afghans.

The FDA is planning to authorize a third shot for the immune-compromised as soon as today. If the FDA green-lights the additional shots it’s up to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the Centers for Disease Control's expert advisory panel, to make its own recommendation on who should get the shot and what factors they might want to consider. Those recommendations are typically adopted by the CDC as nationwide public health guidance. The ACIP is scheduled to meet on Friday, though it is not currently scheduled to vote. Dr. Anthony Fauci said this morning that the third shot would specifically be for those who have compromised immune systems and battling advanced illnesses initially, but that eventually the general population might need that third booster shot, but said that the research is being done to study the long-term vaccine efficacy in people.
Remember when the Trump administration sent those massive floating hospitals to California and New York? One of the signs that the pandemic was under control was seeing those ships return to base. But now hard-hit Mississippi has requested the federal government send a military hospital ship such as the USNS Comfort to its aid. And ventilators are shipping again too. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirmed Wednesday that it was sending 200 ventilators and 100 nasal breathing machines to Florida, where more than 10,000 people are hospitalized with coronavirus-related illnesses. And even though the demand for much of the personal protection equipment (PPE) fell this spring as COVID-19 cases declined, the need has risen again the need for PPE now is similar to where it was at the pandemic’s beginning.

As the delta variant of the coronavirus sweeps across the United States, a growing number of colleges and universities are requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for students to attend in-person classes. But the new mandate has opened the door for those opposed to getting the vaccine to cheat the system: there's plenty of individuals out there selling fake vax cards. And really, have you seen them? Not that hard to reproduce. And this is despite the threat that being caught can come with fines or even possible jail time. All of which leads to the question of whether digital verification is the way to go. New York’s Excelsior App is a good example of a successful alternative to a paper card. Rolled out in March, the Excelsior Pass was the very first government-issued vaccine passport, offering New Yorkers a way to quickly verify their inoculation status or a negative test result via smartphone app or website.

Dr. Anthony Fauci says he's hopeful the Food and Drug Administration will give full approval to the coronavirus vaccine by the end of August and predicted the potential move will spur a wave of vaccine mandates in the private sector as well as schools and universities. The FDA has only granted emergency-use approval of the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, but the agency is expected to soon give full approval to Pfizer. That approval will hopefully encourage more unvaccinated Americans to get their shots as the delta variant continues to surge through much of the United States -- with many of the infected being children. One example: children with COVID-19 used to make up 1% of patients hospitalized at Children's Hospital New Orleans. Now they account for about 20%, according to Dr. Mark Kline, physician-in-chief at Children's Hospital New Orleans. He said about half of the children hospitalized are under 2 years old. Most of the others are between 5 and 10 years old, so too young to be vaccinated. And National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins expanded on that with ABC "This Week" anchor George Stephanopoulos this weekend saying: "We know that kids under 12 are likely to get infected and if we don't have masks in schools, this virus will spread more widely" putting kids right back into the remote learning they were in when the pandemic first began. Back-to-school season has already begun.
