Future travel may require COVID-19 ‘passport’

According to ABC4, The Commons Project, The World Economic Forum, and a coalition of public and private entities are reportedly collaborating to launch ‘CommonPass,’ “a trusted, globally-interoperable platform for people to document their COVID-19 status (health declarations / PCR tests / vaccinations) to satisfy country entry requirements, while protecting their health data privacy.”

The Common Pass website says thepurpose is to “enable safer airline and cross border travel by giving both travellers and governments confidence in each traveller’s verified COVID-19 status.”

IBM has also created its Digital Health Pass, which is designed to provide organizations with a way to bring people back into workplaces, schools, stadiums, and flights.

Welcome to the future.
