  • Abstract: Restrictive measures imposed because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic have resulted in severe social, economic and health effects. Some countries have considered the use ... Las medidas restrictivas impuestas a causa de la pandemia de la enfermedad coronavirus de 2019 (COVID-19) han tenido graves efectos sociales, económicos y sanitarios. Algunos ... Les restrictions imposées dans le cadre de la lutte contre la pandémie de maladie à coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) ont eu de lourdes conséquences économiques, ... Ограничительные меры, введенные с началом пандемии коронавирусного заболевания 2019 года (COVID-19), привели к серьезным социальным и экономическим последствиям, а также неблагоприятно отразились на здоровье населения. Некоторые страны рассматривают возможность использования сертификации иммунитета в качестве стратегии по ослаблению таких мер для людей, перенесших заболевание, посредством выдачи этим лицам документа, именуемого «паспорт иммунитета». Данный документ подтверждает, что эти лица обладают защитным иммунитетом к тяжелому острому респираторному синдрому коронавируса-2 (SARS-CoV-2) — вирусу, вызывающему COVID-19. Всемирная организация здравоохранения не рекомендует внедрять сертификацию иммунитета в настоящее время по причине неуверенности в формировании длительного иммунитета у лиц, переболевших COVID-19, а также ввиду опасений в отношении надежности предлагаемого метода серологического тестирования для определения иммунитета. Сертификацию иммунитета можно рассматривать только при условии соблюдения научных пороговых значений для обеспечения иммунитета, основанных на антителах или других критериях. Однако, даже если сертификация иммунитета получит широкую поддержку со стороны науки, она имеет массу этических проблем с точки зрения различных ограничений индивидуальных свобод и процесса реализации этих ограничений. Авторы исследуют основные соображения этической приемлемости сертификации иммунитета для освобождения людей от ограничительных мер во время пандемии COVID-19. Этическая приемлемость сертификации иммунитета зависит не только от необходимости соответствовать строгим научным критериям, но и от ее использования, целей политики и принимаемых мер по снижению потенциального вреда и предотвращению непропорционального бремени для не имеющих сертификата лиц и нарушений личных свобод и прав. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]因新型冠状病毒肺炎(新冠肺炎)大流行而强制实 施的限制性措施已造成严重的社会、经济和健康影 响。有些国家已考虑采用免疫认证策略来放松这些限 制性措施,即,向感染后康复的人员发放一份通常被 称为免疫通行证的证件。该证件证明此类人员对引起 新冠肺炎的病毒——严重急性呼吸综合征冠状病毒-2 (SARS-CoV-2)——具有保护性免疫力。世界卫生组织 建议目前不要实施免疫认证,因为尚不确定感染新冠 肺炎后康复的人员是否切实存在长期免疫力,且对计 划用于测定免疫力的血清学检测方法的可靠性尚存疑 虑。仅当达到确保免疫的科学阈值(无论是基于抗体 还是其他标准)时,才可以考虑采取免疫认证。然而, 即使免疫认证得到了科学的充分支持,也仍存在许多 伦理问题,包括对个人自由的不同限制及其实施过程。 对于在新冠肺炎大流行期间准许某些人员无需遵守限 制性措施的免疫认证,我们研究了这种认证在伦理上 予以接受的主要考虑因素。免疫认证不仅需要满足严 格的科学标准,而且在伦理上是否予以接受还取决于 免疫认证的用法、实施对象以及是否采取措施以降低 对未获得认证的人员造成的潜在伤害,防止对其产生 过重的压力以及违反个人自由和权利方面的规定。 [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]Copyright of Bulletin of the World Health Organization is the property of World Health Organization and its content may not be copied or emailed ...
