Covid passes are bought on a black market and, according to an article in Newspaper Göteborgsposten, police in Italy suspect that doctors are involved in the trade.
A few weeks go, the pandemic restrictions were tightened again in Sweden, and around the world, after a period of milder guidelines. In some environments it is now required that you present a Covid pass to be allowed to enter. The reason is not hard to guess; the proportion of Covid19 cases has increased since the guidelines were eased earlier this year and at the end of November the first case of the Omicron variant was discovered in Stockholm. To officials, the situation is again more serious.
However, there are many people in opposition of vaccination passes around the world, so also in Sweden. They see the vaccine as a direct threat to freedom of choice and/or their health -and work actively to avoid being vaccinated. The increasing demands for vaccine passes are seen by these groups as further restrictions on their freedom of choice.
The result has in some cases been that some people make every effort to circumvent regulations, among other things by making fake Covid passes. Passes are bought on a black market and, according to an article in Swedish Newspaper Göteborgsposten on November 29, the police in Italy, for example, even suspect that doctors there are involved in the trade. The Telegraph in UK reported in December that the Swedish Covid app has not been able to distinguish the false passes from the genuine and our official ‘Ombudsman’ has received over 9,000 reports of false passes, more than the authorities usually receive in a whole year in other matters.

I am not an immunologist, nor an expert on Covid19, but regardless of what one thinks about getting vaccinated, the development with false passes is a problem, potentially exposing many people to health risks which they cannot begin to calculate if false passes circulate. We should all be able to agree that with Covid19 it comes down to protecting those with underlying conditions. Those with greater risk for serious illness should of course be able to tell, to the best of their ability when they are putting their health on the line.
TRUE Original Documents offer technology that could all but eliminate the risk of fake covid passes. If correctly implemented -the origin and validity of every issued documents can be confirmed with 100 percent certainty -anywhere, all year round, by anyone. The technology makes it virtually impossible to falsify, destroy or lose documents, and we have had it ready since Covid became a known issue worldwide.
TRUE’s software has been in used for about a year and a half, before the Swedish government decided that a vaccine pass should be created. The technology is used by Businesses, Colleges and National Federations, to issue Diplomas and Transcripts, Certificates, Awards, Rankings, Memberships and other types of Recognitions. The technology could have been easily implemented for Covid passes, and is still a valid solution which could help increase security and create more public trust in the matter -and most importantly, minimize the falsification of the passes.
