Statistics on feedback to EU certificate proposal
The EU commission entertains a proposal to retain digital Covid certificates (cf. here for background reading). The feedback period ended on April 9th, 2022. This post is intended to preserve the feedback statistics, lest they disappear into some black hole.
In total, 385,191 comments were recorded, almost all of them written by EU citizens. Browsing through the comments, I have never encountered a single one encouraging the EU commission to go forward with the proposal. Breakdown by country is as follows (“contribution” means proportion of comments coming from this country, “population” indicates population shares within the EU).
Feel free to use the quotient “con(tribution) / pop(ulation)” to build some tyranny index or whatever.
I am not surprised by the large figure for Austria, but what has been going on in Slovakia, Slovenia and Latvia? And what about the French? Have they been occupied with the presidential election?
