In the United States, compulsory company vaccination does not convince all workers, but some companies are taking action
Australia is heading towards reopening thanks to a new iPhone app
Australia is getting closer to reopening international borders, expected by Christmas, with a new iPhone app that allows you to read a QR code for vaccination certificates. The app called VDS-NC Checker, developed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, allows you to check international vaccination certificates. As reported by the Sydney Morning Herald, it uses a technology promoted by the International Civil Aviation Organization called a digital visual seal and can scan vaccination and test certificates.
The description of the app states that it is “developed in accordance with the World Health Organization’s Guide to Secure Digital Vaccination Certificates. If the QR code is real, the app displays the most important certificate information, including the holder’s biodata and Covid-19 vaccinations. Initial submission of the application can certify certificates issued by Australia, but future updates will also be able to authenticate certificates issued by other countries.”
Germany, 11,780 injuries and 67 deaths
11,780 new cases of coronavirus were recorded in Germany during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number since the beginning of the epidemic to 4,215,351. On the other hand, the number of deaths reached 67 for the total number of deaths of 93,571 deaths from February 2020 to this part. This is the data from the latest report from the Robert Koch Institute.
USA, the company’s vaccination obligation does not convince all employees
Even before US President Joe Biden announced on September 9 that companies with more than 100 workers should require vaccination, dozens of companies, including Amtrak, Microsoft, United Airlines and Disney, sounded an ultimatum to most workers. Some commitments seem to have convinced reluctant workers, but employers still face resistance. The federal commitment will cover up to 100 million Americans and private sector employees as well as federal health care professionals and contractors. This is a high-risk move by the president to increase the vaccination rate in the United States. About 77 percent of American adults have received a dose of the vaccine, according to the CDC.
