Germany begins testing for antibodies, will issue ‘immunity certificates’ to get country back to work

German researchers are considering “immunity certificates” to allow individuals who recovered from the virus to re-enter society.

The project has been conducted by the  Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig, which will reportedly conduct blood tests among the general public for antibodies produced against the virus.

It is believed that the testing could start in April, and around 100,000 people will be tested for antibodies at a time.

“You could give immune people something similar to a vaccination certificate that could allow them exceptions from limits on their activities,” Helmholtz Institute epidemiologist Gerard Krause said.

According to Der Spiegel, the data could bring the nation’s lockdown to an end and allow people to resume normal life as best as they can.

Currently, everything from schools to restaurants are shut down, and only two people are allowed to be together in public gatherings.

Bavaria currently suffers from the highest number of cases, with around 13,989 infected on record.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel may have also been contaminated, and will be carrying out her duties from isolated quarantine.
