1st of November, 2021. Guyana, South AmericaLast updated: November 1, 2021 at 14:20 pm
In a ridiculous, flagrant, and controversial move, Guyana’s Health Minister a few months ago gazetted an order restricting unvaccinated persons from entering the banks to transact business or even withdraw their own money. This move has drawn widespread criticism, condemnation, and protests from the Guyanese public, but, unfortunately, their cries fell on deaf ears.
This publication called the political offices of several countries around the world including the United States, Canada, Brazil, and England this morning to verify whether they were also restricting the unvaccinated from banks. However, we were told that this isn’t happening.
One official from Canada commented, “we restrict the unvaccinated from entering places like restaurants or where there is likely to be a crowd of people that could facilitate the spread of the virus, but restricting the unvaccinated from banks is absolutely ridiculous. It’s taking it too far.”
Nigeria had announced a few months ago that it would ban unvaccinated people from entering the banks, but it is not clear if they carried through with the plan.
Of course, we didn’t call all the countries in the world to verify their position on this issue, and we don’t doubt that a select few countries may also have implemented this despicable rule against civil liberties, but what we are sure of is that the governments of those countries which did that are unlikely to be among the most intelligent or caring in the world.
