DW gets fake negative Covid test on messaging app Telegram | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “DW gets fake negative Covid test on messaging app Telegram | DW News” – below is their description.

German drug maker BioNTech says it’s planning to produce 2 billion doses of its coronavirus vaccine this year – more than 50 percent up on its initial projected output. The announcement comes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel promises that everyone who wants to be vaccinated will be offered doses by the end of the summer. That promise is giving rise to the idea of issuing “passports” for people who have been immunized. Supporters say this would allow people to return to normal life. Critics fear it could violate data protection laws.

But there are other reasons to be cautious about the idea of vaccination certificates. DW Reporter Joel Dullroy has been looking into the flourishing online market for coronavirus scams.
