According to RCI.FM, doctors have repeatedly warned about the dangers of using false health passes, particularly in the event of hospitalisation, explaining that the care of covid-19 patients differs depending on the vaccination status.

Unvaccinated people benefit from more intensive care upon admission because of their lower protection against severe forms of the virus.
