Germany is also considering more freedom for vaccinated people if there is an increase in infections

Without a vaccination certificate, life in Italy is severely restricted. The passport identifies those who have been vaccinated, recovered and those who tested negative – and has been valid since Wednesday for visiting museums, theaters and leisure facilities. Thousands of Italians take to the streets against the mandatory vaccination pass, chanting “Down with the dictatorship” in several cities.

In Genoa, demonstrators wore yellow Jewish stars that read “not vaccinated” – stars like those in France in the camp of anti-vaccination camps who are currently taking to the streets like in Italy. Tens of thousands of French are protesting against an imminent “compulsory vaccination”, as they call the planned health passport, which the government wants to implement in a hurry.
