– Anyone who had Covid should be protected for a year
Second infections are very rare. Nevertheless, the certificate is only valid for half as long as for those who have been vaccinated. Epidemiologists criticize the FOPH that this is not tenable.
The Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) issues the Covid certificate for six months to people who have already had Corona. Vaccinated people, on the other hand, receive it for twelve months. “There is no evidence of a longer term of protection than six months for recovered persons,” says the BAG.
“This statement is not correct,” says Stefan Pilz, epidemiologist and physician at the University of Graz. To make such a difference between those who have recovered and those who have been vaccinated is “not sufficiently justified by scientific data”.
Irish scientists already had in May eleven studies with recovered people from the USA, Qatar, Israel, Denmark and other countries evaluated. In the first seven to more than ten months after a corona infection, a maximum of one in a hundred people fell ill a second time. Nowhere did it seem as if the risk of a second infection increased with the distance from the first infection. There are some indications that the immune protection lasts for at least ten months after a corona infection, so the conclusion.
