Cyprus Government: you pay 10 euros every 73 hours to do a rapid test for your freedom (safepass, dictatorial measures)
The government of Cyprus decided on July 20, that from 1th of August , citizens will pay the rapid test up to 10 euros or just put the vaccine (Phizer, Astra Zeneca ..) Crowds reacted outside the presidency, many protests with thousand people were held before the 20th of July for the compulsory vaccination, but nothing changed, on the contrary, things got worse for the citizens of Cyprus. The decision for the compulsory vaccination may not have been announced, but in Cyprus they are told indirectly or directly that if you do not get the vaccine you will have to pay 10 euros for the rapid test to be able to go to the supermarket, bank, cafes, services and even to your work. 10 euros multiplied by 3 times, equals 30 euros per week and 30 euros for 4 weeks equals 120 euros per month. The minimum salary in Cyprus is € 855 euros, but when you subtract 855-120, you have only 735 euros left.
Therefore, based on the data kept in the Provincial Labor Offices of Cyprus, the number of registered unemployed at the end of July 2021, reached 18,950 persons. So what will become of the unemployed who do not have a salary and can get only a minimum income or maybe get nothing? Has the Cypriot government decided anything about them? and not just for the unemployed but also for those who do not want to get the vaccine for whatever reason, some cannot because of health and some because of religion. Did the Government of Cyprus think about these people before taking these measures? Where did the respect go? What is happening globally with this corona virus? Or is the pandemic not to blame and was the pandemic just a cause for some governments? Questions that afflict humanity.
Most people in Cyprus with what happened, ran to make an appointment to get the vaccine and not just for their health, just for their freedom and their economy, soon there will be research for this from us.
So do we expect more dictatorial measures by then? Maybe they will introduce a mandatory vaccination from 1th of September ? What else can the Cypriot government do to protect their citizens? Unanswered questions from the people of Cyprus ..
