Germany wrestles with the covid (passport) certificate question

leave a comment »

From German Ethics Council – German only for now.

The German Ethics Council Yesterday issued a 55-page report on the justifiability of “risk-free certificates” that would allow those who are immune to coronavirus to move around more freely.

In view of the many uncertainties that still exist regarding immunity against the novel coronavirus, the German Ethics Council does not recommend the use of immunity certificates at this time. Commercially available tests to detect immunity against SARS-CoV-2 should be more strictly regulated, considering doubts around their reliability and the resulting potential dangers.

The results of the deliberations of the 24 person council are contained in the referenced report but German language only for now.

This. kind of thing would have direct Work from home/ office implications. It also raises some very pointed questions on the nature of enforcement. Is this criminal, civil or some third security vector. Who enforces and what are their powers?
