     The  economy should be stimulated again.

With a Green Passport, citizens in Israel who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus and those who have recovered can visit fitness studios, hotels, theaters or sporting events, among other things. Health Minister Juli Edelstein wrote on Twitter that more than 3.2 million Israelis could now enjoy these benefits. ©

 The  aim is to stimulate the economy in the country again. “©

 The  Green Pass is gradually opening the country again,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening.


 The  vaccination campaign in Israel is very advanced compared to other countries. ©

 The  country with its 9.3 million inhabitants is considered a pioneer. Every citizen from the age of 16 can now be vaccinated. ©

 The  number of infections in the country is still comparatively high, but has fallen steadily over the past few weeks.

Vaccination card can be created online

As part of a second opening step after a week-long lockdown, shopping centers, museums, libraries and houses of prayer were also opened to non-vaccinated people on Sunday. ©

 The  corona rules such as mask requirement and distance must also be observed there. ©

 The  schools were also opened to other classes.

In Israel, anyone who has recovered or who has been vaccinated can create a vaccination card online one week after the second vaccination. Personal information can be read using a simple QR code. Owners of such a vaccination card can then have a green passport issued, among other things via a special app.

In total, around 4.3 million first and almost three million second vaccinations have been given in Israel since December 19. For comparison: Germany has around nine times as many inhabitants as Israel. So far, almost 3.2 million people there have received a first and almost 1.7 million a second vaccination.

Freedom rights are not privileges

Regarding the dispute over the lifting of corona restrictions for vaccinated people in Switzerland, the Swiss Sunday newspaper writes:


 The  national ethics committee has presented recommendations on this. She would only like to allow a vaccination certificate to be requested under very restrictive conditions. She does not consider it permissible to go to the theater, cinema, concerts or sporting events. (…) That is not surprising: ethics committees are regulatory turbo. But freedom of contract applies in Switzerland. Private individuals decide to whom they sell tickets or goods. Freedom rights are not privileges that the state at its grace grants or denies to subjects on a case-by-case basis. It is precisely the other way round: the state must give very good reasons if it wants to restrict the freedom of its citizens. (…)

Should we deny others something just because we are not allowed to or cannot do it ourselves? Is it a matter of solidarity not to give preference to vaccinated people? What does a non-vaccinated person benefit from if a person who has been vaccinated is denied freedom rights? ©

 The  philosopher Reinhard K. Sprenger gives a clear answer: “Whoever demands solidarity is not fighting the virus, but the population.” (dpa)
