The craziness of COVID-19 might be about to get even crazier.
As if locking down economies and closing businesses isn’t bad enough, there are now reports that a COVID-19 passport could be required for travel in the near future.
This is like something out of a dystopian novel.
CBS News in Miami reports:
You May Need A COVID Vaccine Passport To Travel In 2021
In order for people to travel in 2021, they may eventually need a COVID vaccine passport.
Several companies and technology groups have begun developing smartphone apps or systems for individuals to upload details of their COVID-19 tests and vaccinations, creating digital credentials that could be shown in order to enter concert venues, stadiums, movie theaters, offices, or even countries.
The Common Trust Network, an initiative by Geneva-based nonprofit The Commons Project and the World Economic Forum, has partnered with several airlines including Cathay Pacific, JetBlue, Lufthansa, Swiss Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic, as well as hundreds of health systems across the United States and the government of Aruba.
The CommonPass app created by the group allows users to upload medical data such as a COVID-19 test result or, eventually, a proof of vaccination by a hospital or medical professional, generating a health certificate or pass in the form of a QR code that can be shown to authorities without revealing sensitive information. For travel, the app lists health pass requirements at the points of departure and arrival based on your itinerary.
The Washington Post is also pushing the concept of passports:

This is totalitarianism.
Is this the world people want to live in?
