Health alert in the Netherlands: deliberate infections of coronavirus to obtain the COVID passport

The Health and Youth Care Inspectorate (IGJ) in the Netherlands asks young people to “Do not deliberately become infected with the coronavirus” to maintain the COVID pass, after knowing the plans of the Dutch government to exclude the unvaccinated of this certificate.

“It is dangerous to be intentionally infected with the coronavirus. In doing so, you put yourself and others in danger. The Inspection of Health and Attention to the Youth is, therefore, outraged by the initiatives that offer this possibility. The coronavirus is dangerous. You can get seriously ill”, Underlines the IGJ.

This warning comes after the appearance of “organizations that consciously want to spread the virus more,” says the inspection, alluding to online groups that offer the possibility of being infected to be considered “Recovered from COVID-19” and thus obtain the passport, which will only be valid for these and those vaccinated if the Parliament approves the Government’s plans.

“It’s a slap”

“It seems scary to me. It’s a slap for anyone who has been committed to fighting the pandemic for more than a year and a half. And of course also for the relatives of people who lost their lives due to the coronavirus, “lamented Inspector General Marina Eckenhausen.

As he warned, the risk is not only in the possibility of developing serious COVID-19 by not being vaccinated, but also “You can infect others, who in turn can become seriously ill”, thus putting his life at risk, so “anyone who is deliberately infected endangers public health,” ruled the IGJ.

A website began this Thursday to offer a package for 33,50 euros, what includes a tube with a liquid to become infected with the coronavirus and a rapid test to verify contagion.

The inspection, which showed his surprise at the existence of such an offer, you are already investigating this website to determine if it really offers real material that puts users at risk, although, as Efe has been able to verify, the page is now offline and it is impossible to access.

Although it has not yet received the support of a parliamentary majority, the Dutch government plans to exclude the unvaccinated within two weeks of the COVID pass, even if they test negative, which will prevent their access to places with a high risk of contagion, such as bars, restaurants, musical events, and even non-essential shops.

The Netherlands is studying the tightening of restrictions, which would mainly affect the unvaccinated, after infections registered a daily record during the last two weeks, with more than 23,000 new positives in 24 hours documented yesterday, at the same time that hospital pressure increases.

a 82,7 % of the population over 12 years of age already have the full regimen and 86.4% have at least one dose, although these data have been stagnant for several months, with around 1.8 million inhabitants refusing to receive an injection against covid-19, due to fear, skepticism towards vaccines or for religious reasons.
