Police in rural central India forced local residents who were not vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus to wear placards bearing a skull and crossbones — a universal symbol of danger — this week, Reuters reported Thursday.

Police officers in the Niwari district of Madhya Pradesh state decided to enforce the sign-wearing as a way to encourage local villagers to receive a Chinese coronavirus vaccination. Officers learned which villagers were not vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus and assigned them skull and crossbones signs to wear on their person. The signs included additional text reading, “Do not come near me, I am not vaccinated. Please stay away from me.”
