Can the digital vaccination certificate be copied as often as required?

Linus Neumann from the Chaos Computer Club reckons that there will always be cheats as long as not everyone has received a vaccination offer. Neumann told ZDF: “If ID is crucial to gain access to public life, then the pressure to do so is high.”

He doesn’t believe that those who check the QR code will also ask for ID for comparison. “If you stand at the entrance for 8.50 euros an hour, you won’t have to worry about it.” In addition, it is not in the interest of a landlady to scare away customers. “So it won’t work the way you want it to.”

According to Axel Klein, head of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Saxony, an innkeeper in Saxony with an incidence of 35 and above is responsible for checking whether a guest has been vaccinated, tested or recovered. “The information just has to be plausible for him. The innkeeper is not a regulatory authority. They are responsible here.” Klein assumes that a control has a preventive effect and that the rules are more likely to be adhered to. “But it is also clear that every now and then there will be people who do not adhere to it. We have taken over the control function in order to be able to open – better than staying closed.”

Linus Neumann from the Chaos Computer Club would like to draw attention to another problem in this context. In his opinion, people will hardly be able to move uncontrolled through the public in the future. “We are just getting used to the fact that we have to identify ourselves everywhere, leave our data with rapid tests, show our vaccination status. Personalized ticketing is being expanded to include major events such as concerts or sporting events.” Neumann considers this to be “a very noteworthy social restriction”.

Likewise, it was also defined to advance with the vaccination of the crew of the maritime area and of international flights ”.

On the other hand, the minister affirmed that “4 out of 10 over 18 years old already have a dose of vaccine against COVID-19”, adding that “the challenge we have now is to accelerate the start of schemes and the application of the second to complete them ”.

In this sense, he stated that the country has already received 20,677,145 doses of different vaccines and that between today and tomorrow 99% of them will have been distributed. “We want to focus on the importance of continuing to initiate schemes, but also to complete them,” said the national minister to ensure the efficacy of the vaccines, especially in the face of new variants.

Photo series with 12 pictures

The digital vaccination certificate is there. Fully vaccinated people can get it in participating pharmacies and, from today, with a second vaccination in the vaccination center. But how does the information get into the app and what do you need?

Select app

Both the Corona warning app (CWA for iOS and Android) and the CovPass app (iOS / Android) can scan and save the certificate. As of Monday (June 14), the CWA is not yet able to do this on every device; it must first be updated to version 2.3.3. Which app you choose is ultimately a matter of taste. CovPass gets by without the contact tracking feature that some people have declined to do.

Scan the certificate

For each vaccination there is a certificate that is initially printed out on paper with a QR code. Each one has to be scanned into the app individually. This is done with the help of the smartphone camera. Once both QR codes have been scanned in and saved, a third QR code is generated.

With it you can now prove your vaccination status. In the CovPass app, for example, it opens immediately when the program is called up. The digital certificate becomes active two weeks after the second vaccination and, according to the entry in the Corona warning app, is initially valid for one year.

Submit certificate

Be sure to keep the paper printouts. They can also be used to save the vaccination status on other telephones. For example on your partner’s or on a new phone.


«Digital sick children. The consequences of Covid are serious “

Icon of modern times or exception? The teacher Annamaria Staiano she shields herself, she is a woman of records: the first elected president of the Italian Society of Pediatrics after 123 years. “For sure, it took too long in the prestigious association that has eleven thousand members,” he says.

How did you do it?

«By giving continuity to the work: first as a member, then as vice president. I hope to be the first woman in a long series, because so many professionals stand out for their skills and, like their male colleagues, they deserve to hold these positions ».

In his case, it’s not even the first.

«I am head of pediatrics at the Polyclinic and director of the translational medical sciences department at Federico II, my university is giving space to women still penalized in these areas at national level. And, from 2010 to 2013, I was president of the Italian Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology: nevertheless, there were no other women at the top. For this, I have dedicated my election to all my colleagues. We must insist ».

How has pediatrics changed?

“From the inside, I can say this: today it is an increasingly feminine profession, 74 per cent of pediatric specialists are women. The “surgeons” are also on the rise ».

Is your model Rita Levi Montalcini?

“I mentioned her in my speech, because she is one of the women who changed the world without having to show anything but her intelligence. I realize that I will do the minimum compared to the Nobel Prize, but with enthusiasm ».

Why did you choose to be a doctor?

“Since middle school, I’ve had this desire. I owe my career to my parents, entrepreneur father, housewife mother: they have always supported me and encouraged me to do more ».

But his daughters are both doctors.

“One is a pediatrician, and she also voted for me, the other a cardiologist. That they chose the same profession made me feel less guilty, because I was an attentive but not assiduous mother ».

Over the past 30 years, it has also seen the diseases that affect children change.

«Today the diseases are mostly chronic and non-communicable, often intestinal, associated with rare, genetic and metabolic diseases. And there is an increase in diabetes ».

What does it depend on?

“First of all, from factors such as pollution and lifestyles, from nutrition to a sedentary lifestyle. But technology has also enabled early diagnosis, more effective treatments. Just think of premature babies ».

Families feel alone.

«One in ten today is fragile. It is our task to support them: the pandemic has highlighted the criticalities in the health system ».

What is the priority to be addressed?

“There was a lack of connection between hospitals and the territory. With overcrowded wards and university centers for Covid and pediatricians who did not contribute to the assistance, because they were not even put in a position to do so. We have to network ».

Vaccination is underway from the age of 12, but how much does the emergency affect children?

«The after-effects due to contacts with the virus are modest, with the exception of the rare cases of pediatric multi-systemic inflammation syndrome. On the contrary, the psychological consequences are worrying due to the increase in cases of aggression and self-harm ».

It weighs the addiction to the smartphone.

“Anxiety and irritability, when mobile phones and iPads are not used, are a wake-up call. The risk is three times greater for girls and more shy children with difficulty in establishing relationships with peers ».

What can parents do?

“Talking with children and setting an example is essential. Mothers and fathers should be the first to limit the use of smartphones, during meals and, absolutely, when with children, and always choose appropriate content and use appropriate languages ​​on social networks “.

With Covid and the digital revolution, have children’s fears changed too?

“Judging from the cases reported in the neuropsychiatric structures, irrational fears such as those of ghosts, darkness and animals are more frequent: if obsessive, they must be resolved with the support of a specialist”.

What are you afraid of?

“Of the inequalities between children, which also weigh heavily on their growth.”

Is there more disparity between children or gender?

«For heaven’s sake, among the children. We must do even more to protect them, so that they have the same rights and are not based on family, nation or city of origin ».

Ethical exercise of the public function

The INAES and the Anti-Corruption Office Today they developed a training activity on the Guide for the Ethical Exercise of the Public Function for managers and authorities of the organization. This training, carried out under the virtual modality, had the participation of forty-eight civil servants.
The guide is an initiative to disseminate the main duties, principles, incompatibilities and obligations that public officials must know and respect in the performance of their duties.

In the words of Felix Crous, Head of the Anti-Corruption Office (OA) “The Anti-Corruption Office does not have a reason to be isolated, we contribute to transparent public management and is part of the search for justice and the common good. INAES motivates us doubly because its mission is to consolidate processes of equity and justice. We are encouraged for the very idea of ​​a desirable society “.

For its part, Alexandre Roig, president of INAES pointed out that in the organization “We seek to permanently improve the management, integrity and transparency systems and processes at all levels”. With this training, he added, “We are working on the legal and technical principles of good public management and we must be intransigent in distancing them. At INAES we activate transparency mechanisms, identifying faults and problems by publishing data and management results. Thus, we strengthen the institutional framework. of the INAES to be able to put the sector at the center of society “Roig concluded.

Also participating in the meeting were the Director of Transparency Policy Planning of the Anticorruption Office (OA), Luis Villanueva (OA) and the Director General of Administration of INAES, Diego Urman, who detailed that “The objective of this first day with the OA is to record the inflexible position of this INAES management in the matter of corruption. The way is to start creating the appropriate control environment and providing all the tools to the agents so that they can know the current regulations and provide constant channels of consultation “.


Millions of customers receive a free Tempo upgrade

Millions of Vodafone customers will soon be able to look forward to a faster internet connection: the provider is granting its existing customers a Tempo upgrade – automatically and at no extra charge. The changeover can take a while, however.

Many Internet users in the Vodafone cable network will soon be able to surf faster. As the company announced on Wednesday, the contracts of around four million existing customers will be upgraded – at no additional cost.

Those affected do not have to worry about anything. The data throughput is to be increased automatically for them over the next two years. The changeover has already been completed for around half a million connections. The others still have to be patient. Customers will be notified once the upgrade has been completed.

The download speed is increased from 150 or 200 Mbit / s to 250 Mbit / s, for example. Anyone who has booked a contract with a regular 400 Mbit / s will receive 500 Mbit / s in the future. Older tariffs with low one- or two-digit download speeds will be converted to a transfer rate of up to 50 Mbit / s.

However, not all users in the Vodafone cable network are considered. Anyone who has a contract with the discounter brand Eazy gets nothing. Even some older tariffs in connection with a TV package will not benefit from the change.

With the measure Vodafone wants to prevent a possible loss of customers in the cable network, writes “Spiegel Online”. The background to this is a change in the law that has led many landlords to rethink their flat-rate contracts with cable network providers. You can no longer pass the costs on to the tenants. Vodafone will also face greater competitive pressure as a result of the change in the law, as tenants will have a greater choice between different providers.
