    Taking vaccine or test is an individuals choice. You cannot force someone .. This govt. only knows how to force,corece,threaten and manipulate.. First focus on ensuring adequate medical infrastructure, compensation to healthcare workers, adequate medical supplies and not manipulate to show records on someones birthday

    No test or treatment can be given without informed or implied consent.It is against medical ethics.

    With due respect Sir, When you are suspected of carrying a deadly contagious disease, by not testing, you are endangering the lives of others, which could definitely considered as a criminal act.

    I think instead of RTPCR tests that do not prove infection but only colonization,,it would be better that other confirmatory tests are done and this should be explained to the concerned person rather than imposing it on him. I was amongst the first to suggest a vaccine for corona ,on 17 Feb 2020 I had written a letter to Hon. Prime Minister about it and followed it up with a phone call to his principal secretary Mr Mishra. Though many may not agree with me, vaccination will bring down the transmission rate and the cases that require hospitalization, and I think that is already working along with immunity developed by exposure to the virus ( herd immunity-better than vaccine ). Vaccination also should not be imposed but advantages and probable side effects should be explained. I had also written at that time that we should manufacturer monoclonal antibodies ( costing around less than Rs 5000 if manufactured in India and modified Human Normal Immunoglobulin (costing Rs 40) which can be used for treatment ( Trump was given monoclonal antibodies when he had Covid, manufactured by Regeneron Pharma, I have a letter of appreciation from him) today we are importing it at Rs 60,000 from Roche through Cipla. Ideally inbound passengers in January/ February 2020 from abroad should have been restricted and allowed in only after quarantine of 40 days, if this was done we would not have imported the virus- no lockdown etc and India would have been a financial superpower.

    Is the use of criminal law penalties sustainable under the Constitution against use of force in this matter? The Commissioner is treading dangerous legal ground.

    According to the RTI queries none of the guidelines are mandatory including Tests, vaccines and masks. With such guidelines nobody has the right to penalise or force anybody to have invasive tests which are found to be not indicative of any infections and are to be discontinued in US. They contain ethylene oxide which is a known carcinogenic. Wake up people time to end these mandates which are illegal and harmful as they violate our basic human rights and nobody has any rights to violate them. Chamber of commerce and business organisations need to call their representatives and force them to control these unelected bureaucrats usurping our freedom.

    Why these elite and communist chinese controlled WHO's murky RTPCR tests in the first place, also now Super MERS to decimate vaccinated ? ...... "SARS-CoV-2 was never designed to kill. It was designed to spread rapidly, with low fatality, to create worldwide panic and demand for vaccines, along with government lockdowns and global communism due to “cases” diagnosed via fraudulent PCR tests. But MERS is a super deadly bioweapon. This will be released next, a souped-up version of MERS that has been weaponized via Fauci, the NIH and the WIV under the control of the PLA (People’s Liberation Army)."... ....This Super MERS strain will kill at least 30% of those who are infected, under normal circumstances. But because the covid vaccines have destroyed the immune response among vaccinated individuals, the death rate in the vaccinated may be significantly higher. (50%?) The Super MERS strain is effectively the second half of the binary weapon system, with the first half being the vaccine. This is why tyrannical government has pushed so hard for mass vaccinations. It’s the setup for the kill. The Biden administration has been working with China all along to try to achieve a 70% vaccination rate in the USA, which would translate into an overall kill rate of at least 20% of the US population once Super MERS is released. This translates into about 70 million people, roughly speaking. Or more than ten times the death statistics of the Nazi Holocaust. .......... Ref:
