After a corona outbreak that left three dead in a nursing home in Hildesheim, a former employee was fined 600 euros on Wednesday for forging documents. The 46-year-old had presented her employer with a fake vaccination card. Among other things, the court found that the woman had reported herself to the police as a mitigating factor.
Originally, the public prosecutor's office had also charged her with negligent homicide and negligent bodily harm. In relation to these allegations, the procedure was discontinued because experts had argued that the 46-year-old could not be unequivocally identified as the cause of the chain of infection.
At the end of November 2021, the woman continued to work as an everyday companion in the home for three days while her son had Corona and she was also infected unnoticed. As an unvaccinated contact person, she should have gone into quarantine according to the rules at the time. Defense and public prosecutor waived appeals - so the verdict is final.
