'Covid pass' lasting 24 hours could allow people back into theatres and sporting events

Seems fairly obvious 24 hours is irrelevant in terms of technical limits. The pass would last longer than 24 hours if chosen to, knowing that that determination is made by how long the test result is regarded relevant. Otherwise the implication is that you would need to get tested every 24 hours.

This could be along similar lines of implementation with the aforementioned plan for digital ID card for British citizens. Leading to / used as part of a digital "COVID pass", where your COVID test status is digitally recorded allowing you to buy, sell and take part in society. Eventually vaccine status too perhaps.

This makes perfect sense for sporting events/theatres and voluntary activity. Can't see a problem here. And after all the slippery slope fallacy, is just a fallacy.

In fact the very best thing that can happen if you look at the demographics of COVID deaths is to have a series of week long massive sporting events, concerts, raves whatever, for under 50s and make it free for anyone with COVID and advocate mass kissing. That way we will reach herd immunity super quick and those who are older or more vulnerable will have less to be concerned about this winter.

What a great idea. Once up and running, it could be used to enforce all sorts of other things. Not up to date with your tax payments? No footy.

Have opinions that don’t conform to BLM group think...no holidays for you.

Another crackpot idea that falls apart under scrutiny. 

1. Who pays for the tests? 

2. How robust will the tests be? Even 5% false negative would be an issue if audience has low prior exposure. 

3. How can you access the test? 

4. How are the test results reported? 

5. Do you get your money back if you have a positive test? 

On the other hand we could just get back to normal we don't shut things down for the flu.

+1

This will also prove that Covid-19 is no greater risk than unvaccinated flu.

We already have the proof. Multiple analyses point to lower than seasonal flu fatality rates in the young. My only caveat is to add “in under 65s” to that. It does seem a bit worse than flu in the very elderly, but that is no reason to destroy our society and impose fascist controls on us.

You've got to be pretty naive to believe that, as well as unobservant. The only reason I can think of so many fail to see it (we're already too far down this path) is because they've been swept up in to accepting being treated like livestock, and the changes tend to come in small pieces that they shrug off as "it's not a big deal, stop bothering about it."

Don't worry. With you. Was being sarcastic.
