Malta to Roll Back Vaccine Passport Requirements in February
Last week, I discussed how the ‘The Great mRNA Gene Therapy Experiment‘ was an abysmal failure.

Malta was among the countries used as an example to explain how the COVID-19 jabs belong in the trash.

The small archipelago in the central Mediterranean Sea is one of the world’s most vaccinated nations, around 87% fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Yet, that didn’t prevent Malta from reaching its record COVID-19 death rate in recent weeks.
In response, the country implemented stricter measures and vaccine passports to combat the latest COVID-19 surge.
Residents required papers to enter various venues like restaurants, bars, cinemas, and more.
However, it appears Malta has backtracked from vaccine passports and will scrap the measure starting in February.

Malta will start to scrap a requirement for people to present a COVID-19 vaccination certificate for entry to restaurants and other venues from next month, Health Minister Chris Fearne said on Tuesday.
“With 75% of the population now having received the booster jab, we are in a position to start lifting the vaccine certificate rules,” Fearne told parliament.
He said the certificates would not be needed for entry to restaurants, snack bars and social clubs from Feb. 7. Access to bars, gyms, spas, pools, cinemas and theatres will be granted without certificates from Feb. 14.
Prime Minister Robert Abela hinted at the isolated country learning to live with COVID-19, the Malta Independent noted.
The Prime Minister also said that the time has come for a discussion in Malta to take place on when to draw the line between considering Covid-19 as a pandemic or as endemic, which would mean that it would be considered on par with the common cold or influenza.
Abela was full of criticism for his political counterpart PN leader Bernard Grech, as he accused Grech of being a “populist” and of not wanting the country to return to normality.
“I don’t understand how Bernard Grech can be so populist,” Abela said.
“We put implemented restrictions based on the vaccine certificate – we weren’t the first country to do it; many other EU ones have the same regulations – and his first reaction was that he agrees with the decision of health authorities. Then some days later, he turned his views upside down, and said that they are an inquisition on people’s liberties,” he said.
While most of Malta’s population received a COVID-19 booster, it’s only a matter of time before that dose’s protection wanes against future viral mutations.
Will Malta truly live with COVID or return to harsh measures when cases inevitably increase again?
