A new lawsuit was filed against the Biden administration regarding the Covid-19 vaccine mandate for the health workers in Louisiana.
The recent lawsuit increased to 12 more states including Louisiana, making the total number of states 22.
The states are Louisiana, Arizona, Montana, Alabama, Idaho, Georgia, Mississippi, Indiana. South Carolina, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Utah. The earlier lawsuit which was filed in Missouri included Arkansas, Alaska, Kansas, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, and South Dakota.
Attorney general Jeff Landry of Louisiana stated “the federal government will not impose medical tyranny on Louisiana’s people without my best fight.”
Both lawsuits are based upon similar grounds. Both lawsuits claim that the vaccine mandate threatened the health workers to drive away if they did not get vaccinated at a time when there was a dire need of medical and health facilitation when the pandemic was totally out of control.
The Louisiana lawsuit also called the vaccine mandate for health care workers a “one-size-fits-all sledgehammer.”
The lawsuit also contends that “the rule issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services violates federal law and unconstitutionally encroaches on states’ power.”
According to the CDC, approximately 195 million American citizens that makeup roughly 58.9% of the total population of America are completely vaccinated. To reach this number, the vaccine mandate was necessary to be carried out.
The CDC has also released a new press warning asking the American citizens to avoid travel to several European destinations where the Covid-19 cases are on the surge once again. The destinations include Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Iceland.
More states are speaking against the vaccine mandate imposed by the Biden government now. The New Orleans U.S Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the Biden administration vaccine mandate for the businesses completely.
According to the business vaccine mandate, any venture which had more than 100 employees were liable to get all of their staff vaccinated by January 4, 2022 or wear masks daily as well as get tested for the Covid-19.
