May 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — As international travel becomes increasingly choked by COVID-19 test requirements and looming vaccination checks, some travelers are using fake test result certificates to claim they are not a biological threat, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Fake COVID-19 test result certificates, of the kind required by airlines in order to board international flights, have proliferated since the early months of 2021 in countries the world over. The International Air Transport Association (IATA), the trade association for the world’s airlines, has found fake COVID test certificates being used in South America, Asia, the Middle East, and a selection of countries in western Europe. Some individuals have been arrested after they were caught selling the paper documents.

Two women traveling from the U.K. to Ghana explained the ease with which they procured illicit COVID test certificates in a BBC report. “I just asked people I knew, ‘who does photoshop?’ I asked my friends to see their COVID tests just to get a structure of what the certificate looks like and then had someone make one for me,” said one of the women.

Airlines, as well as the IATA, have been pushing for digital versions of health certification, in an attempt to quell the growing market for forged paper passes. Airlines are particularly motivated to establish a more secure system for checking health passports, as the burden for enforcing the rules is placed on their shoulders. The German government, for instance, recently fined the flag bearer, Lufthansa, around €25,000 (approx. $29,800) for permitting passengers to fly with fake COVID certificates, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Elsewhere, a private airline has been fined by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for transporting 27 “COVID positive” passengers between the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan earlier this month. The CAA issued a warning that, should another violation of this kind happen again, more serious penalties will be imposed, according to reports.

With the introduction of the “Digital Green Certificate” in the European Union (EU), it is expected that many Europeans will turn to the dark web for fake documentation. The “Digital Green Certificate” is set to include a scannable QR code detailing the bearer’s name, date of birth, and passport number, as well as the date of vaccination, the vaccine’s type (only EU-approved vaccines will be allowed), status regarding a former infection with COVID-19, and the presence or absence of antibodies.

People who have not received the vaccine and who have not had COVID-19 will have their PCR test status on their certificate, which is to be produced in both digital and paper forms.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) warned in a tweet that coronavirus test certification may pave the way for more strict enforcement and the broad implementation of vaccine passports, chipping away civil liberties in the process. “Bless your heart if you think the walk from ‘15 days to slow the spread’ to ‘papers please’ was accidental or spontaneous,” he said.

The IATA is devising its own system to extinguish efforts to circumvent national health pass requirements. “IATA Travel Pass addresses this challenge [fake tests] by enabling travelers to control and share their digital vaccination certificate or test results with airlines and border authorities, easing facilitation and reducing the risk of fraudulent documents,” IATA Director General Willie Walsh said in a statement early May.

It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in the NIH's funding of so-called "gain-of-function" research may be catching up with him.

In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox's Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.

Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.

But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci's department in the NIH, "collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it."

And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.

So, the evidence - both in testimony and in the court of public opinion - continues to mount.

Could we ask you to consider SIGNING and SHARING this important petition, which calls for Dr. Fauci to be fired and investigated for any role he played in promoting and funding the dangerous research which may have cost the world dearly in lives and jobs lost.


When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than "Mr. Science" himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.

In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci's NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.

Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.

Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.

However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition if you agree that Dr. Anthony Fauci should instead be immediately fired and investigated for his role in causing the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.

As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.  

Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.

Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.

And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.

Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to demand that Dr. Fauci be fired immediately and investigated fully for his role in the creation of Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic.

P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.

P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden's return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.

However, “[as] long as travel restrictions remain in place due to the COVID-19 situation, it is highly likely that production and sales of fake test certificates will prevail,” a spokesman for the European Union’s law enforcement agency Europol said. This may be made more likely by the fact that fake certificates can be purchased for a fraction of the price of an actual test.

The Wall Street Journal reported a listing seen on the dark web for a fake COVID test certificate, for which the seller was asking a mere $22.35. The on-site tests at airports can cost six or seven times as much.

Though governments continue to make travel across national borders difficult whether or not one has contracted SARS-CoV-2, the necessity of such tests — and COVID vaccination checks — for safeguarding against the spread of the disease has yet to be proven.

In fact, Seychelles, the world’s most vaccinated country, saw the largest increase in COVID infections in the world earlier this month. Though previously boasting that some 60 percent of its population had been “fully vaccinated” against the coronavirus, this did not stop the country recording 336 positive tests per 100,000 population in the first week of May, vastly outstripping that of India, which had seen around 28 positive tests per 100,000 population in the same time period. Total deaths per 100,000, too, show Seychelles to have almost double the rate of India’s overall COVID-related death toll, according to the New York Times’ global coronavirus tracker.
