Get The Bleep Out!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


The government in South Korea wants to introduce a beep noise to Covid apps that alerts them when unvaccinated people approach. Well, that could be considered just a tad bit discriminatory, don’t you think?

The plan is for scanners to beep in a punitive way when people who are not vaccinated or with expired vaccines approach. In South Korea, the government will now consider vaccine passes good for only 180 days after full vaccination.

Critics of this plan say that it will treat unvaccinated people like shoplifters or criminals. Others are worried that the beeping sound will drive them crazy because it is too annoying, to which the government said that they can try to think of an alternative that is “less irritating.”
