The dangerous strain of the Delta coronavirus is forcing the health authorities of countries to revise their quarantine recommendations and again make the wearing of masks mandatory. US President Joe Biden has called the new coronavirus outbreak "an epidemic of the unvaccinated." The world is considering various restrictions for unvaccinated citizens, individual incidents are also encountered in private companies.
We are talking about the difficulties that the unvaccinated are now facing.
Dismissal of CNN employees
The American television channel CNN fired three employees for coming to work in the office unvaccinated, Reuters reports.
Currently, work in the channel's office is voluntary and is possible subject to completion of the vaccination course. The official date for returning from the remote work is set for September 7, but the dates may still be postponed to mid-October.
CNN President Jeff Zucker emailed staff that the laid-off employees violated the company's trust system, which asked them to certify that they were vaccinated without requiring documentary evidence.
"Let me be clear - we have a zero-tolerance policy on this. To come to the office, you need to get vaccinated," said Zucker.
Note that Facebook, Netflix, Uber Technologies, Microsoft require vaccination to enter the office. Some companies ask for a coronavirus test or just a face shield.
In addition, the state of California and the city of New York have introduced mandatory vaccinations for government employees (including police officers, firefighters and school workers).
Jennifer Aniston refused to communicate with her anti-vaccine friends
Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston admitted that she stopped communicating with friends and acquaintances who oppose Covid-19 vaccinations.
“If you have Delta, then you can still pass it on to me. Maybe I’ll only feel a little bad and I don’t go to the hospital and die. But I can pass the virus on to someone else who hasn’t been given the vaccine. Then their health may be in jeopardy. Therefore, I do not want to put anyone's life at risk. That is why I am worried. We have to think about someone else besides ourselves, "- says the actress.
Aniston was already vaccinated on May 7th.
