Dan Andrews, the premier of the state of Victoria in Australia, vowed Sunday to “lock out” unvaccinated people from the health system and from the “vaccinated economy.”
What’s going on?
Elected officials in Australia, which has finely begun to give up on its oft-questioned and criticized “zero COVID” policies, have been trying all sorts of gimmicks to get its population to get vaccinated — including rewarding fully vaccinated subjects with an extra hour of outdoor recreation time.
Officials have also resorted to threats, including arresting anyone caught outside for longer than permitted or for breaking curfew or for daring to go past their 5-kilometer virtual leash.
