Hello Great patriots,
Greece is doing something crazy they are thinking about fining the elderly 100 euros (about $140) for not being vaccinated against COVID.
Seniors over 60 are already on a fixed income worldwide, and this fine could cause some seniors to go hungry or skip on medications they are already taking and paying out of pocket.
The Greek Government said it will be added to their tax bills and will take effect on January 16th unless there is a lawsuit or a court shoots it down, but it has not received much of a problem, which is very sad.
As many of you know, there is a new variant coming out of South Africa called Omicron; what many will not point out is that all/most of these variants are coming from places where they tested the vaccine like Brazil, but that is a topic for another time.
The prime minister told the greek people that Greece’s overall COVID-19 death toll exceeded 18,000 this week with confirmed new infections at high levels also that a quarter of the Greek population remains unvaccinated.
The Greek PM has not imposed a new lockdown but mandated healthcare workers and fire/rescue to get the vaccine or face termination.
The Greek Government has not provided details of how they would certify whether seniors have taken the jab or not. Some had stated that they might overstep their boundaries and cross-check with the Government’s Social Security databases, but this is a long shot since the Government will have first to check Greece’s Independent Data protection Agency and in order to do that, they will have to pass legislation through Government.
Many Americans might think, why would we care what happens in Greece or what their Government does to their citizens but please do not think that the US is just an observer to what Greece is doing. The US Government is taking notes and assessing what that country’s Government is doing, how the people will react, and any outcry, protests, or pushback of any kind. Things are tested abroad before they make it to the US.
Let me know what yall think about this and please share my Opinion piece on social media
