Europe descended into a third day of violent carnage on Sunday as tens of thousands of people in Belgium took to the streets to protest against the return of strict lockdown rules aimed at curbing a rise in Covid infections. Nearly 40,000 people descended on the capital Brussels to protest against new anti-Covid measures banning the unvaccinated from entering restaurants and bars.
All this talk of banning the unvaccinated from public life has a very familiar ring to it.
Yeah, it's the normal response of sensible governments to sufficiently deadly diseases.
I do not believe there is a border in the world you can cross without having to prove that you are vaccinated against certain diseases. The average first worlder rarely goes to places that will trigger the check but I've handed over my yellow card along with my passport many time because I knew I was crossing a border that would trigger the check. (Coming from a country where the disease in question exists in the wild.)
