HOW TO FAKE A CORONA TEST: AND HOW TO PREVENT IT.

If you want to travel to Germany from a risk area or want to spend your well-deserved vacation in a safe travel destination, you can’t avoid it: the Corona test. But the test not only costs a lot of time and money, it is not easy to get, very uncomfortable for many people and may involve a long waiting time. Wouldn’t it be nice to print out a negative corona test or to do things yourself with Photoshop?
What sounds like a bad joke seems to be becoming more and more of a trend. In Bavaria, the police found 45 fake Corona test results during a control in a coach on 57 passengers. But also when entering holiday countries that require a negative corona test, there are fakes. In Brazil, 4 tourists were arrested with fake corona tests. People who enter or leave the country with fake corona tests always endanger other people.

Waiting at Airport

In addition to the fake negative results, there are of course also fake positive results that employees can use to get rid of work.
The American FBI, for example, warns against such methods.
Both types of fake tests are dangerous. They undermine the integrity of the tests as a whole and fuel theories that the tests are too imprecise anyway.
But what can oppose such methods?
At Ubirch, we believe that a digital corona test certificate, which has positive and negative results anchored in a forgery-proof blockchain, is a solution to this problem.

FOUR GOOD REASONS FOR THE DIGITAL CORONA TEST CERTIFICATE:

PROTECTION AGAINST FAKE TEST RESULTS

“It is becoming more and more popular that test results are falsified. The criminal energy is increasing because there are more and more areas that require a negative test result to enter.
It is hardly possible for laypeople to recognize forgeries. In addition to the resulting social problem, the reputation of the laboratories concerned, whose findings are subsequently falsified, also suffers.
With the digital corona test certificate, findings are forgery-proof and test results easy to verify. This creates trust and security for everyone involved.

ADDITIONAL SALES POTENTIAL FOR LABORATORY

»For more and more companies and organizations (eg from the areas of production, tourism, events and health), a negative test result from their employees, customers and guests as well as the ability to quickly and reliably check a large number of tests within a short period of time is the prerequisite for to be able to maintain their operations.
Laboratories can support this ability with the digital corona test certificate, thereby upgrading their corona tests and offering them accordingly at a higher price.
In addition, the laboratories have a feature that is a strong sales argument, especially in the attractive B2B market.

CONTRIBUTION TO DIGITIZATION

“Digitalization in the healthcare sector opens up many opportunities to accelerate processes, use resources more efficiently and offer patients better performance. However, this must not be done at the expense of security or data protection.
A test result that can be reliably used and digitally verified in various situations thanks to the digital corona test certificate, regardless of the medium (paper, PDF, wallet pass, …), is an important contribution to successful digitization

HIGHEST DATA PROTECTION

»The digital corona test certificate complies with the highest data protection requirements due to the strict anonymization. At no time will test results or other personal data be processed by Ubirch or stored in the blockchain.
The data sovereignty and control lies exclusively with the tested person. Only she receives the QR code and decides to whom to show it for verification. Misuse of the data is therefore impossible.
The digital corona test certificate is therefore extremely data protection-friendly and GDPR-compliant.
