Well then...you have only focused on 1 aspect of the person then.

Attacking the specialist doctor at Groote Schuur who said his patients in ICU were not vaccinated and relied on IVM for treatment...that noble? Calling doctors and pharmacists who wouldn't back the belief IVM was the Golden Bullet for Covid false and saying they should just do it at the risk of their jobs...that noble? Calling out anyone who doesn't follow the rhetoric that IVM is the Golden Bullet...that noble?
I did focus on one aspect - the one you so elegantly highlighted.
Had you presented a dissertation, I may have passed comment on the various you raise here - but probably not.

That aside, I have neither the time nor inclination to enter into a whataboutism contest.

Yet, you did. The irony...

It seems the new certificate doesn't have the January cut-off date anymore.
Yeah, I see that was removed, but the 3 months expiry (from download) is still embedded in the QR code (and the encoded data inside too). Probably just for the token and wasn't meant to be one's vax status expiry.

Edit: I see there is blurb at the bottom now where it says to ensure it remains up-to-date, you will have to re-download it. So maybe every 3 months? But then why not leave that on the cert? I dunno. :)

I can only speculate. In the near future, there will be some app/interface that will allow agencies (at locations like airport) to validate your pdf certificate by scanning QR code.

It's live so make sure to turn off the main switch before removing the cover.
