Tennis player, and a 20-time Grand Slam winner, Novak Djokovic is banned from U.S Open, over his opposition to the Covid-19 vaccine. Djokovic said he would rather miss out on future tennis trophies than get forced to get a Covid vaccine.
CDC said this on U.S travel restrictions:
«If you are a non-U.S citizen who is a nonimmigrant, you will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before you travel by air to the United States from a foreign country.»
Earlier this year, he was banned from the Australian Open and they also put him on a week of house arrest. They also deported him. According to Nigel Farage, there is no medical reason for this, whatsoever.
However many jabs you`ve had, you can still catch Covid-19 and spread Covid-19. The only argument for vaccination is that if you get Covid-19, you will probably be less ill. We are dealing, in no vax case, with one of the fittest young men in the world who has full medical insurance. He will be no risk for American policy whatsoever, former Brexit Pary leader, Nigel Farage said in an interview with Fox News.
This is not about health. It`s about control. It`s about the government deciding how you should live your life, and what you should, and should not do. It`s about the big state, Farage said.
Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia after the government canceled his visa in a row over his vaccine status. Novak is willing to miss out on competitions like Australia Open and French Open, and now U.S Open, over his jab status, and that is a price he`s willing to pay.
Novak doesn`t want to be associated with the anti-vax movement, but he supports an individual`s right to choose. «I was never against vaccination,» he told the BBC, confirming he`d had vaccines as a child, «but I`ve always supported the freedom to choose what you put in your body.»
The principles of decision-making on my body are more important than any title or anything else, I`m trying to be in tune with my body as much as I possibly can, he said.
Around 5 billion people (60%) of the total population have been vaccinated against Covid. The rollout began 18 months ago, and since then evidence has shown that serious side effects have rarely been reported.
Novak Djokovic said he hoped vaccination requirements in certain tournaments would change, adding he was hoping he «can play for many more years.»
