How countries around the world are cracking down on the unaffiliated


As countries around the world grapple with the rapid spread of the Omicron Covid variant, policymakers have a difficult choice of whether to restrict freedoms to those who are unaffiliated.

More than a year after the jabs went up in arms, scientists and governments continue to fight a tidal wave of propaganda, conspiracy theories, and complacency around vaccination.

Countries with low levels of vaccination have been forced to go back into harmful lockdowns amid hospitalizations, while citizens in highly vaccinated countries socialize freely.

Compulsory vaccination has become a buzzword around the world over the past twelve months, with leaders opting to make jabs mandatory for everything from using the gym to enjoying a meal outside.

In the UK, ministers are caught in a tangle between the demands of liberal backbenchers and the need to downplay the threat of the virus – with Covid stalling the biggest parliamentary revolt of Boris Johnson’s premiership.

The standard looks at how countries are dominating the unaffiliated.

The sanctions appear to have worked, with the proportion of people who have gotten a jab in two months from 68 percent to 74 percent.

The government is now set to launch the first vaccine mandate in Europe, which will run until 2024. The move was set to come into effect from February, but could be delayed until April over technical issues, local media reported.

His most recent policies have certainly followed suit, with the French Senate on Thursday approving rules for “vaccine passes” for entry to all indoor venues and large events.
