German expert: Vaccination against coronavirus will divide society into two classes

04.12.2020, Berlin.

The privilege of population groups vaccinated against coronavirus will inevitably divide society into two classes, Dieter Cassel, a German expert on health care economics, said in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt on December 4.

According to the expert, a vaccine passport in public life is necessary in order to assess the statistical probability of a person being infected with a certain disease, as well as the probability that he will infect others.

“This should be a sufficient reason to treat this person fairly differently than others who have not been vaccinated. For example, with respect to their personal mobility and travel abroad,” Cassel said.

At the same time, the expert noted that getting privileges through vaccination against coronavirus will inevitably lead to the division of society into two classes. “However, it is inevitable if the vaccine passport should increase the readiness of the population to be vaccinated, which, according to recent surveys, is extremely necessary,” Cassel said.

Earlier, German authorities repeatedly stated that vaccination against coronavirus will be voluntary. However, German Minister of Justice and Consumer Protection Christine Lambrecht expressed her fears that those who refused vaccination against coronavirus could be coerce to vaccination implicitly by restricting their public life.

Many airlines in Europe and the USA are also working on the possibility of introducing a rule of mandatory vaccination against coronavirus.
