SF says they don’t know if Covid certs work – promotes them anyway

Sinn Féin has admitted that they “don’t know” if vaccine certs have worked in reducing case numbers, despite calling for non-Cert compliant businesses to be reported to the authorities.

The comments were made yesterday on Virgin Media’s The Tonight Show.

During a discussion on rising Covid case numbers, Cullinane was asked if it was possible that Covid certs had failed to prevent the spread of the virus based on current figures.

“Well, I don’t know is the answer to that question,” he said, adding that it was a “matter for NPHET.” He proceeded to urge the government to roll out the booster jab as quickly as possible.

Last week, however, Sinn Féin called into question the re-opening of the hospitality sector amid rising case numbers, and called on the government to institute stronger enforcement of Covid certs against non-compliant businesses.

Last month, on October 19th, Cullinane, told RTÉ that the certs “obviously” had to be enforced.

Another SF flip-flop: Actually vaccine certs are grand now

In July when the certs were originally introduced, Sinn Féin dubbed them “discriminatory.”

“What we need is a plan to include everyone, not a plan to exclude some,” said party leader Mary Lou McDonald at the time.

“That is fundamentally wrong and flawed, and it’s wrong to force it through in this rushed manner.”
