President Joe Biden on Monday pleaded with Americans to get their vaccine as the number of COVID cases has risen nearly 300% over the past three weeks.

‘We have to,’ Biden said during an event in the Rose Garden, when asked how the administration will get the unvaccinated vaccinated.

Biden was marking the 31st anniversary of the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act. In his remarks, he announced his administration would find some cases of ‘long COVID’ to be a disability.  

He noted this was ‘the first of its kind to help Americans grappling with long term effects of COVID-19 that doctors call long COVID.’

‘Many Americans who seemingly recovered from the virus still face lingering challenges, like breathing problems, brain fog, chronic pain or fatigue. These conditions can sometimes – can sometimes – rise to the level of a disability,’ Biden noted.

‘So we’re bringing agencies together to make sure Americans who have long COVID who have a disability, have access to the rights and resources that are due under the disability law,’ he said.

‘Long COVID’ includes those who suffer from symptoms more than 60 days after originally diagnosed.  It’s been estimated that one in 20 people can get it.

COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are continuing to rise rapidly across the U.S. as the Delta variant tightens its grip on the country. 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday that vaccinations are on the rise, particularly in states with low rates.

‘Last week the five states with the highest case rates, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Texas and California had a higher rate of people getting newly vaccinated compared to the national average. Again, this is a positive trend,’ she said at her White House press briefing.

‘And just one more recent proof point in the reporting period from yesterday, nearly half a million Americans made the decision to get their first shot. Numbers like this signal to us, people are understanding the urgency and importance of getting vaccinated, and rightfully so,’ she noted.

On Sunday, the country recorded 15,711 new cases with a seven-day rolling average of 52,116, which is a 291 percent increase from the 13,305 average recorded three weeks ago.

Every single state and the District of Columbia is reporting either infections rising or holding steady in the last week, according to a DailyMail.com analysis of Johns Hopkins data.

Additionally, 56 COVID-19 deaths were recorded on Sunday with a seven-day rolling average of 281. 

Fatalities, which are a lagging indicator, have not dramatically risen but instead have slightly increased by 17 percent from the average of 239 recorded three weeks prior. 

Health officials say this is because people now are protected by vaccines, though in states that have less vaccine uptake hospitals are starting to fill up as the highly contagious Delta variant spreads. 

Florida, Missouri and Texas – which currently make up 40 percent of all U.S. cases – are seeing hospitalized patients record-high levels and doctors say they are now bracing for a fourth wave.
