All rage attendees were expected to be vaccinated.


"Think of the old people and get your jab"

"You are taking up a hospital bed. Don't be selfish. Think of humanity. Get your jab".


"You less likely to pass on covid after being vaccinated. Do the right thing and play your part"


Then this happens.

What now Covid Karens of mybb?

What's more worrying is going into Home Affairs or the Post Office where no testing or vaccinations are required.

At this year's event, all attendees and staff must be fully vaccinated and show digital proof of vaccination. These would be verified before entry was allowed, said Sandras.

In addition, two Rapid Antigen tests would be required during the festival for guests and staff, one on the first day of arrival and one of the third day of attendance.

"We have further mandated that a negative Covid-19 test must be presented by every guest on arrival at the festival," said Sandras.

"All testing data will be sent to the Department of Health daily who have a task team in support.

What now "what now"? It's long been known the vaccine does not stop stop infection, and thus not spread, so what now?

Funny enough, there is still people that believe this to be true. Right here on myBB and advocates for mandatory vaccinations.

Martin Kingston, Chair, Business for SA,
“It [the government] doesn’t need to impose it itself, but obviously we would welcome it if it did, but we do believe they need to acknowledge the need now to aggressively drive the vaccination rate, which is the only way we are going to curb transmission,” he added.

Can this rage incident be used in court?

I am assuming it can be used as an argument against mandates.

They did everything possible to comply

Did they all wear masks and practice social distancing ? :unsure:

Can't imagine what it must be like for the best years of your young adult life to be ruined by this pandemic, and even going through all these protective measures still end up with events cancelled. These kids will need therapy in their later life to deal with how their youth was robbed.

Walsh and his team are aware of the potential for Covid-19 to spread during events such as Rage, hence their decision to enforce mandatory vaccination for attendees.
So the organisers were also under the false impression that vaccines prevent transmission?
Wonder where they got their (mis)information from?

They clearly aren't fully-fully vaccinated. They must have missed the memo that you are only fully-fully vaccinated unless you've had a jab in the last 3 months after you were fully-vaccinated.
Can we add a fully every time we get poked? So like after two years, you're fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully, fully vaccinated? 90% of your vaccination card can be covered with the word fully.

In court in what case?

The problem is the large amount of unvaccinated people. If a very large part of the population was vaccinated it would not matter if these kids were infected, as they'd just go home and if they infect others, there is a very low risk of those other people being hospitalized. Life can just go on.

What is your idea of "a very large part"?

I have a suggestion. It's way out there, I understand, but can't life just go on anyway?
