South Africa Eases Restrictions

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa eased coronavirus lockdown restrictions in a bid to revive an economy reeling from the effects of the pandemic and a week of deadly riots.

The move to virus alert level 2 from level 3 comes as Covid-19 infections drop and will allow for greater activity in an economy seen contracting in the third quarter because of the unrest.

Bangladesh Reopens Schools

Students in Bangladesh returned to in-person classes on Sunday after a shutdown of more than a year.

Those in higher grades will have classes five days a week, while others will return once a week, according to Education Minister Dipu Moni.

“The government will shut the schools again if the coronavirus cases surge,” she said. “But there are little chances of Covid infections going up again.”

Bangladesh on Saturday recorded 1,327 new virus cases, the fewest daily count since May, taking the tally of infections to more than 1.52 million. The death toll climbed by 48, the lowest since June, to 26,880.

New York hospital to stop delivering babies as staffers quit over vaccine mandate

A hospital in rural New York is pausing its maternity services as employees quit instead of getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Six employees at the Lewis County Health System have resigned, and seven more are unwilling to get vaccinated, meaning Lewis County General Hospital will stop delivering babies for the time being, multiple news outlets reported.

"We are unable to safely staff the service after Sept. 24," said Lewis County Health System CEO Gerald R. Cayer at a news conference.

The move appears to be temporary. During the pause in maternity services, Cayer said the health system will focus on recruiting nurses to get baby deliveries back up and running.

"We have a challenge to work through with the vaccination mandate," Cayer said.

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo passed a mandate Aug. 16 to ensure that all healthcare workers in New York must be vaccinated. More specifically, hospitals and long term care facility employees need to get their first dose of the vaccine by Sep. 27.

The original mandate included religious exemptions, but an emergency regulation passed by the New York Department of Health on Aug. 27 said that religious exemptions would no longer be considered for as a reason for healthcare workers to remain unvaccinated.

Cayer says he supports the vaccine mandate and that it is the key to maintaining a "healthy workforce," NBC reports.

At Lewis County General Hospital, 27% of employees are unvaccinated, Cayer said.

Lewis County has recorded 2,626 COVID-19 cases and 31 deaths out of a population of 25,916. Only 46% of its population is vaccinated with one or more dose, below the national average of 63%.

Hospitals around the nation have offered incentives to attract employees to get vaccinated, including thousands of dollars in sign on bonuses. All over the nation, hospitals have suffered from nursing shortages as COVID cases surge with the delta variant.

17 healthcare professionals, citing religious reasons, seek to prevent New York State from enforcing vaccine mandate

Seventeen Catholic and Baptist medical professionals who say they oppose getting the Covid-19 vaccine for religious reasons are seeking to prevent New York State from enforcing its vaccine mandate, according to a federal complaint filed in New York on Monday.

The professionals -- nine doctors, five nurses, a nuclear medicine technologist, a physician liaison and a rehabilitation therapist -- are seeking a judgment declaring the mandate "unconstitutional, unlawful, and unenforceable," according to the lawsuit.
"The Vaccine Mandate emerges in the context of an atmosphere of fear and irrationality in which the unvaccinated are threatened with being reduced to a caste of untouchables if they will not consent to being injected, even 'continuously,' with vaccines that violate their religious beliefs," the complaint said.
They are seeking a temporary statewide restraining order against the mandate followed by a permanent injunction, according to the lawsuit.
The mandate, the lawsuit argues, overrides protections provided under the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, New York State's Human Rights Law, the Supremacy Clause as well as the First and Fourteenth Amendment of the US Constitution.
In August, the New York State Department of Health issued an order requiring all health care workers be vaccinated against Covid-19 by September 27.
The lawsuit names New York Attorney General Letitia James, Commissioner Howard Zucker of the State Department of Health and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul as defendants in the complaint.
CNN reached out to Hochul's office but was told it doesn't comment on pending litigation. CNN also reached out to the Department of Health and the Attorney General's office for comment and was referred to the Department of Health.
Debate surrounding vaccine mandates has picked up since President Joe Biden announced a new plan to tackle the pandemic last week, which includes vaccine requirements in some workplaces.
Health experts and many officials have called vaccine mandates a necessary step to protect the population and slow the spread of the virus. But there has also been blowback from some state leaders, such as Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas, who have called the announcement at the federal level an overreach and pledged to challenge it in court.

Judge blocks New York mandate on vaccinations for health care workers

A federal judge temporarily blocked the state of New York on Tuesday from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of health care workers sued, saying their constitutional rights were violated because the state’s mandate disallowed religious exemptions.

Judge David Hurd in Utica issued the order after 17 health professionals, including doctors and nurses, claimed in a lawsuit Monday that their rights were violated. The judge gave the state until Sept. 22 to respond to the lawsuit in federal court.

The state issued the order Aug. 28, requiring at least a first shot for health care workers at hospitals and nursing homes by Sept. 27.

Based on size, Tennessee has the most COVID-19 cases in US

Tennessee has the most coronavirus infections of all U.S. states in the past seven days and over the entire pandemic when adjusted for population, according to data compiled by The New York Times.

Tennessee averaged over 8,300 new infections each day over the last seven days and has seen a total of 1.15 million cases since the pandemic began. When adjusting these numbers for population, Tennessee has surpassed states like North Dakota and Florida.

Still, Gov. Bill Lee has vowed to fight President Joe Biden's executive order requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to require vaccination or weekly COVID-19 testing. Lee calls the mandate unconstitutional.

Nearly 2M people in Texas overdue for a second shot

Nearly two million people in Texas are overdue for their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, the Texas Tribune reported Tuesday.

As of Sept. 6, 1.89 million have missed their second dose of the two-dose Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, the Tribune reported, citing data from the Texas Department of State Health Services. More than 1 million of them are more than 90 days overdue for their second dose.

That means that of those who received a first dose, 11% haven’t gotten their second shot within the recommended time frame, according to the outlet.
