A return to normality or a new normal? Surely that’s possible with so many vaccines and with so many people having recovered from COVID-19. That’s where an immunity passport could come into play. China has launched one, so has Israel and Chile.
However, other countries are reluctant. They say the passports could lull us into a false sense of security or divide society into the haves and have nots.
There’s a lot to take into account, when it comes to a health passport or the digital version, which sounds practical. Then there’s the dilemma of data protection, identity theft and international human rights.
