How soon will the West follow China in this?
‘A social media row has erupted after some Chinese cities issued public notices threatening to restrict millions of citizens who are yet to receive a COVID vaccine from entering public spaces.
A handful of smaller cities in Jiangxi, Shanxi, Zhejiang, Fujian and Hebei provinces announced that if people fail to have their jabs, they are likely to be banned from entering schools, childcare, supermarkets, government buildings, hospitals, hotels, banks, aged care facilities, wet markets and government-owned premises.
These local governments say officials will put a strong emphasis on monitoring non-vaccine recipients, who are required to obtain an exemption letter from a hospital.
The move has divided Chinese social media users.
Some are all for it, saying getting vaccinated is a great social benefit provided by the government.’https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-16/china-threaten-bans-unvaccinated-from-public-spaces-some-cities/100296584
