German doctor illegally issues mask-wearing exemption certificates

National News // July 17, 2020

As stricter mask restrictions are being bought in, there are a few legitimate reasons why some people are exempt. 

Unsplash German doctor illegally issues mask-wearing exemption certificates

Those suffering from epilepsy, problems with their respiratory tract or existing breathing difficulties can get a certificate from their doctor which means they don’t need to wear a mask. 

But a doctor in Germany is issuing exemption certificates for just EUR 5 with no examination. That’s illegal. 

Although the German doctor is outside Swiss jurisdiction, anyone in the country using a certificate that’s been improperly issued can be fined. 

The doctor was contacted by the 20 Minutes newspaper. She says she’s fundamentally opposed to forced mask wearing.
