Germany offers COVID-19 QR-codes solution for diplomats in Russia: Ambassador

Moscow, Nov 18 (UNI/Sputnik) The issuance of QR-codes to foreigners staying in Russia, including diplomats, may be based on getting the WHO-approved vaccines or on the presence of COVID-19 antibodies, German Ambassador to Moscow Geza Andreas von Geyr said on Thursday.
"Introduction of QR-codes is a complex topic. Of course, it concerns businesspersons, families and diplomats. One of the solutions is to issue QR-codes to everyone who has got the WHO-approved vaccine or to use antibodies markers as criteria," the diplomat told journalists.
The ambassador highlighted, that in his opinion the issue is about "medical transparency of vaccines" and it embraces only the medical side of the issue, not the political one.
