Authoritarian governments continue to take more extreme measures to force COVID-19 injections into their citizens.
While Dictator Joe placed a vaccine mandate on federal workers and businesses with 100+ employees, other governments have taken things to another level.
In Sindh, Pakistan’s second-largest province by population, the government will soon arrest unvaccinated individuals.
Anyone caught traveling on motorways unvaccinated gets imprisoned.
It’s a shocking move that seeks to completely ban those unvaccinated from society.
In Pakistan, and likely coming soon to your safety-interested locale, “motorway travellers will be required to be vaccinated by September 20, 2021. When the deadline expires, unvaccinated travellers will be arrested and imprisoned.”

In light of the National Command and Operation Centre’s (NCOC) fresh directives for expediting Covid-19 vaccinations across the country, the Sindh government has decided to arrest all unvaccinated people besides putting in place stricter restrictions.
According to a notification issued by the provincial home department in light of the directives, while commuters will not be allowed to use motorways past Monday (today), buses and other transport companies could be banned over the presence of unvaccinated staff.
