“Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is warning that Filipinos who refuse to get vaccinated against the coronavirus will not be allowed to leave their homes.” [Source: marketwatch.com]
Having previously said that he would jail Filipinos who refused the coronavirus vaccine, Duterte at least now admits the Philippines presently has no laws to enforce his coercive threats. Nevertheless, as extreme as his statements are, he is by no means alone in seeking to make Covid-19 vaccinations mandatory.
Other examples include Turkmenistan, where the healthcare ministry recently made Covid-19 vaccination mandatory for all residents aged 18 and over; Indonesia, whose capital Jakarta is threatening residents with fines of up to 5 million rupiah ($357) if they refuse to be vaccinated; and Saudi Arabia, which has mandated that all public and private sector workers wishing to attend a workplace are vaccinated, as well as anyone wishing to enter any government, private, or educational institution, including schools, shops, malls, markets, restaurants, cafes, concert venues, or public transportation.
