, Australia’s Victoria state to completely exclude unvaccinated people from economy

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The Australian state of Victoria will bar unvaccinated people from participating in the economy, Premier Dan Andrews has announced.

Victoria is currently under draconian blockade restrictions. Melbourne residents, who make up the vast majority of the state’s population, live under a 9 PM to 5 AM curfew and cannot leave their homes except to work, buy food, or receive Covid vaccinations.

When the blockade is lifted, Prime Minister Dan Andrews said Sunday, future restrictions will apply only to those not vaccinated.

“There will be a vaccinated economy, and you can participate in it if you are vaccinated,” Andrews said. “We will move to block people who are not vaccinated and could be vaccinated to protect the health care system.

Andrews also shared that a “vaccination passport” will be introduced in the coming weeks in regional Victoria, where proof of vaccination will be required to enter pubs and restaurants. According to reports, business owners are on board with the idea.

One of them said, “While we don’t want to turn anyone away, we have to do whatever it takes to ensure the survival of our business.”

The Australian government decided this summer to introduce the passport system in Victoria, to roll it out nationwide.

Andrews is not the only Australian premier to put painful obstacles in the way of his people.

In neighboring New South Wales, Premier Gladys Berejiklian imposed a similarly rigorous blockade last month that is expected to last at least until the end of September and is currently being enforced by hundreds of police and soldiers on the streets of Sydney.

Police have also been authorized to block off entire apartment blocks and ask residents to report for “checks.”

  1. This is really bad. I absolutely do not agree with any of these laws, nor do I agree with the vaccine passport. This is going to create division within society and that is not a good thing at all. There will also be discrimination too against the unvaccinated people, just like how back when the Coronavirus outbreak started, everyone was mad at China for spreading the virus worldwide. People were targeting and attacking Chinese people for the virus. Now, the same type of discrimination is going to happen to the unvaccinated. Discrimination against unvaccinated people has already been happening online, if you look at comments on YouTube or elsewhere regarding Covid-19. The same discrimination will translate to reality and may get worse. Targeted attacks might also happen to unvaccinated. How would the vaccinated know who is unvaccinated? Unvaccinated may still need to be required to wear masks, they may not be able to enter shops, restaurants, public toilets, etc. They may still have curfew restrictions placed onto them. If the vaccinated people can identify all of these things, then targeted attacks may happen. But will violence against unvaccinated people occur? I hope not, but it can always happen, especially if they are being discriminated against, then there is certainty. I can already imagine news articles talking about these targeted attacks against unvaccinated individuals.

    End.
