Despite Swedish state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell previously voicing practical and ethical problems surrounding vaccine passports and emphasizing a belief in a voluntary approach, the Public Health Agency cited an increasing spread of infection in Europe as the reason behind the measure. Vaccination certificates will be introduced for public gatherings and public events in Sweden, based on a request from the Swedish Public Health Agency backed by the government. The Public Health Agency cited an increasing infection spread in Europe as the reason behind the measure. “We believe that we are also facing an increased spread of infection and that is what we must expect”, Director General Karin Tegmark Wisell said, as quoted by national broadcaster SVT. While the Public Health Agency’s request only applied to public gatherings and events with over 100 people indoors (such as theatres, concerts, and sporting events), Social Affairs Minister Lena Hallengren said that vaccination passports should be used at even smaller gatherings. “By introducing vaccination certificates now, we hope to be able to avoid more far-reaching restrictions”, Hallengren said.
Vaccine passports turn every society into a dystopian nightmare, forcing unvaccinated people to live like fugitives, unable to buy groceries, fuel, medicine or even clothing, due to being banned from almost every retail establishment. They are also banned from banks, libraries and universities, denied access to financial services and higher education.
The titans of global capitalism, including Bill Gates, are exploiting the COVID crisis to institute social credit-style digital ID systems across the West.
The death by starvation of Etwariya Devi, a 67-year-old widow from the rural Indian state of Jharkhand, might have passed without notice had it not been part of a more widespread trend.
Like 1.3 billion of her fellow Indians, Devi had been pushed to enroll in a biometric digital ID system called Aadhaar in order to access public services, including her monthly allotment of 25kg of rice. When her fingerprint failed to register with the shoddy system, Devi was denied her food ration.
Throughout the course of the following three months in 2017, she was repeatedly refused food until she succumbed to hunger, alone in her home.
Premani Kumar, a 64-year-old woman also from Jharkhand, met the same demise as Devi, dying of hunger and exhaustion the same year after the Aadhaar system transferred her pension payments to another person without her permission, while cutting off her monthly food rations.
A similarly cruel fate was reserved for Santoshi Kumari, an 11-year-old girl, also from Jharkhand, who reportedly died begging for rice after her family’s ration card was canceled because it had not been linked to their Aadhaar digital ID.
These three heart-rending casualties were among a spate of deaths in rural India in 2017 which came as a direct result of the Aadhaar digital ID system.
The recently proposed measures are, in effect, a reversal of steps taken earlier this autumn, when Denmark became one of the first European nations to remove restrictions and demote COVID-19’s threat level. Since then, however, the nation has been rocked by record infection figures unseen since 2020, which the prime minister blamed on the unvaxxed.The Danish government has confirmed plans to reintroduce requirements that COVID-19 health passes be shown at bars, restaurants and public events.The health pass will be required at indoor events with over 200 spectators and outdoors events with over 2,000 spectators.Furthermore, the government supported once again upgrading COVID-19 to the status of “critical threat to society”, a step that allows restrictions, such as face mask mandates, assembly limits and lockdowns, to be introduced. This measure has been backed by the ruling Social Democrats’ sidekicks: the Red-Green Alliance, the Socialist People’s Party and the Social Liberal Party.
Denmark currently has a Covid-19 vaccination rate of just over 75 percent.The health pass documents a recent negative COVID-19 test or immunity against the virus due to vaccination or recent recovery from infection. The validity period for earlier infections will thus be reduced from one year to merely six months. Furthermore, the pass will be required from those over the age of 15, a change from the previous minimum age of 16.The proposed measures are, in effect, a reversal of the steps made in September, when Denmark became one of the first European nations to wind down restrictions and demote COVID-19’s threat level.
