Denmark Introducing COVID ‘Vaccine Passport’

“A step on the way to a more open society”

Denmark is the latest country to announce that it is rolling out a ‘Covid passport’, to allow those who have taken the vaccine to engage in society without any restrictions.

Reuters notes that the immunity passport is being developed by the Danish government.

“It is expected that there may be requirements from other countries to present vaccine documentation upon entry. A Danish vaccine passport can be used here,” the Danish Health Ministry said in a statement on Friday.

Further reports indicate that the immunity document will be issued via the Danish eHealth Portal, with a government issued login, and will be a ‘self-print’ document.

An example of the document was provided to Danish media:

Michael Svane, industry director of The Danish Transport Federation commented that the move is a ‘step on the way to a more open society.’

“A vaccination passport is the way for us to put restrictions behind us and travel by air much more,” Svane stated.

Svane also noted that he hopes that international solutions will be developed to ensure that the vaccine passport is approved globally.

The move toward a vaccine passport was also praised by Esben Marcher, head of secretariat at Dansk Live, one of the country’s largest events organisers.

Marcher noted “I think many festivals will use it, because it can help ensure that there are no outbreaks of infection during the implementation.”

The system would be similar in nature to that being considered by Ticketmaster, who it was revealed are considering making customers prove they’ve had the vaccine or a negative coronavirus test before allowing them to purchase tickets.

Ticketmaster later clarified that a final decision on such measures would be up to event organizers but that they were still mulling over the implementation of the system.

The spectre of so called ‘immunity passports’ is looming globally. Recently, the government in Ontario, Canada admitted that it is exploring ‘immunity passports’ in conjunction with restrictions on travel and access to social venues for the unvaccinated.

Last month, Israel announced that citizens who get the COVID-19 vaccine will be given ‘green passports’ that will enable them to attend venues and eat at restaurants.

The British government has contracted two firms to develop COIVD ‘freedom passports’, that would be used to segregate society between those who have been tested or vaccinated against COVID and those who have not.

We previously reported, back in November, on the government’s active plans to develop a QR code system to use as an ‘immunity passport’.

The report, stemming from sources close to the government, noted that “Those who refuse to get the Covid-19 jab would likely be refused entry to venues, as part of the same proposals.”

Other reports have suggested that an app already used prominently in the UK by people to book doctor and hospital appointments could implement a vaccination status section that will show whether a person has taken the coronavirus jab or not, and that businesses may use it to refuse entry to those who have not.

litany of other government and travel industry figures in both the US, Britain and beyond have suggested that ‘COVID passports’ are coming in order for ‘life to get back to normal’.

Sam Grant, campaign manager at the civili liberties advocacy group Liberty has warned that “any form of immunity passport risks creating a two-tier system in which some of us have access to freedoms and support while others are shut out.”

“These systems could result in people who don’t have immunity potentially being blocked from essential public services, work or housing – with the most marginalised among us hardest hit,” Grant further warned.

“This has wider implications too because any form of immunity passport could pave the way for a full ID system – an idea which has repeatedly been rejected as incompatible with building a rights-respecting society,” Grant further urged.

Video: Australian Tennis Officials Order Group To Hand Over Novak Djokovic Signs In Arena Or Leave

Tennis Australia demanded to confiscate the group’s signs because they were deemed “inappropriate”

Video has emerged of tennis fans at the Australian Open tournament being harassed by an official ordering them to hand over all their homemade Novak Djokovic signs or be thrown out.

In the wake of the Australian authorities revoking the tennis star’s visa and holding him hostage for days, it appears that fans are now not even allowed to express any support for their favourite player.

The footage shows a fan at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne being approached by an official who eventually admits that he has been tasked by Tennis Australia to confiscate the group’s signs because they are “inappropriate”.

The man refuses to explain why the signs are inappropriate and just keeps repeating the claim and stating “you know why.”

The signs read “Free Novak”, with one declaring that the champion player is being held ‘hostage of a communist state’.

Watch:

YouTuber The Aussie Cossack uploaded a commentary on the incident:

Today, Djokovic has won a court hearing reinstating his visa and allowing him to leave a detention facility. However, the Australian immigration minister has threatened to re-cancel the player’s visa.

As we highlighted last week, authorities clearly planned to make an example out of Djokovic over his beliefs on vaccination as a warning to others.

The tennis champ had his possessions, confiscated, was interrogated for 8 hours, woken up while trying to sleep and subsequently forced to stay in a flea ridden ghetto hotel full of illegal immigrants and criminals.

    Video: New German Chancellor Says There Will Be “No Red Lines” As Regards COVID Restrictions

    “We will pull every possible lever”

    Angela Merkel’s successor in Germany has declared that there is nothing he won’t do to battle COVID, a stark statement given previous pledges to make compulsory vaccinations legal.

    Chancellor Olaf Scholz used his first address to the nation in Germany to push vaccinations, declaring that they are the only way Germany can overcome the pandemic.

    Scholz added that there would be “no red lines” in the battle against the current wave of COVID, which he declared to be fueled by unvaccinated citizens.

    “We will pull every possible lever,” he continued, adding “It will get better. Yes, we will win the fight against this pandemic with the biggest determination. And, yes, … we will overcome the crisis.”

    He added that “our society is not divided,” and referring to people opposed to vaccinations proclaimed “We will not put up with a tiny minority of uninhibited extremists trying to impose their will on our entire society.”

    While claiming “We are listening. We are looking for debate,” Scholz stated “There is in Germany today . . . denial of reality, absurd conspiracy stories, wilful disinformation and violent extremism.”

    “We will counter this with the means of our democratic constitutional state. Our democracy is a democracy capable of defending itself,” the Chancellor further warned.

    On Sunday, Scholz stated that he supports vaccine mandates across Germany, noting that he intends to “vote for compulsory vaccination, because it is legally permissible and morally right.”

    Scholz previously said he wants to introduce mandatory coronavirus vaccination for all Germans as early as February, according to sources close to him.

    Germany recently recorded its highest COVID death toll for 9 months, despite having mask mandates and stringent rules in many regions that banned the unvaccinated from numerous venues.

    The country is preparing to follow the example of Austria by imposing new lockdown measures that will exclusively apply to the unvaccinated.

    Video: Cruz Slams Biden Admin For ‘Funding Chinese Concentration Camps’

    “John Kerry is the customer of the year for Chinese concentration camps”

    Senator Ted Cruz has accused the Biden administration of funding Chinese concentration camps, bowing to China’s use of slave labour and described Biden’s climate czar John Kerry as the Communist state’s “customer of the year.”

    In an appearance on Fox news, Cruz noted “Joe Biden has shown weakness to China,” adding “I introduced an amendment on the floor of the Senate to prohibit the Biden administration from importing any goods, and in particular electric vehicles or solar panels, made with slave labor in concentration camps in China. Every single Democrat except Joe Manchin voted against that.”

    Watch:

    Cruz further urged that Kerry and Biden “ought to be ashamed,” noting “We are literally spending hundreds of millions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer money to fund the concentration camps where over a million Uyghurs are in prison.”

    Cruz continued, “I think we need strength and clarity to stand up to China, to for call them out for their murder, for their torture, for concentration camps, for their lying, for their theft of intellectual property, for their espionage, for their military aggression, and… for their responsibility, their culpability for COVID-19.”

    “I’ve introduced over a dozen different pieces of legislation taking on China. Where are the Democrats? The Democrats are beholden to the big money interests in their party that need Chinese markets to stay in business,” the Senator further proclaimed.

    This week, the Biden administration also announced that the U.S. will not boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics over the country’s atrocities against the Uyghur population.

    Instead, Jen Psaki noted that the Biden administration is refusing to send an official delegation to the games “to send a message” that “egregious human rights abuses and atrocities” won’t be tolerated.

    While some took issue with the decision, Senator Cruz said last month that it would be better to send U.S. athletes to the games to “kick their commie a**es.”
