Denmark: The First Coronavirus Passport Program
Denmark, which started the Coronapass program yesterday, became the first country in Europe to use a coronavirus (Covid-19) passport. Authorities stated that the application has started to open non-essential businesses and will gradually include other businesses according to vaccination data.
For people to get Coronapass; It was stated that they should have been vaccinated 2 doses, had a coronavirus 12 weeks ago, or had a negative coronavirus test in the last 72 hours.
VACCINATION AND TESTING
In the statement prepared by the Danish government regarding the program, “The corona passport shows the document whether a citizen has been vaccinated, has been previously infected (immune) or has been tested negatively in the last 72 hours.”.
The program can be used both as an application on mobile devices and as a document. At the end of May, the Coronapass app will bring together various information on vaccination, test status and immunity in one comprehensive solution.
MONEY PENALTY WILL BE APPLIED
It was stated that certain businesses, including hairdressers, beauty salons and driving schools, will be logged in with Coronapass program and the implementation will gradually cover other businesses such as restaurants in May.
The Ministry of Justice announced that business owners who do not have Coronapass will be fined 400 to 6 thousand euros.
The decision to open businesses with Coronapass will be expanded to include restaurants, museums, theaters and cinemas in May based on the vaccination rate of the population. Coronapass will remain in effect until the end of summer and will not cover travel for now.
