Judging from plummeting cases in spite of slowly lifted restrictions EU reached herd immunity somewhere (guesstimate) around late April. Simultaneously, EU wants to implement Covid passports from 1st July onward. In the same time vaccines are being rolled out (including second doses) so the situation is anyway on the way to be contained.

I'm NOT asking what would have been rationale for Covid passport around February 2021, but what's the point of even bothering with such policy at such late point? (I understand risk of new mutations, but the whole risk is based here on new strains mutating in a way that would undermine effectiveness of existing vaccines.)
