On 9 March, the Trends Journal reported, “The European Commission introduced its plans to produce a ‘Digital Green Pass’ that would alert travel authorities if a traveler has been jabbed by a coronavirus vaccine, a report said… If all goes well, the bill could be introduced by July.” (For more, see our article, “EU GREEN PASS FOR VACCINATED.”)
Updating the plan, Euronews reported last Wednesday,
“The Digital Green Certificate will serve as an assurance that a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19, received a negative test result or recovered from COVID-19. It will be available, free of charge, in digital or paper format. It will include a QR code to ensure security and authenticity of the certificate.”
The EU states the purpose of the new mandate is to ensure “safe and free movement” during the pandemic.
The Digital Green Certificate will comprise three distinct certificates:
“Vaccination certificates, stating brand of the vaccine used, data and place of inoculation and number of doses administered.
Negative test certificates (either a NAAT/RT-PCR test or a rapid antigen test). Self-tests will be excluded for the time being.
Medical certificates for people who have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 180 days.”
The EU clarified that “individual member states could decide whether or not they accept vaccines that EMA (European Medicines Agency) has not yet green-lighted. Countries like Hungary are already deploying shots from Sputnik V, from Russia, and Sinopharm from China.”
The most prominent part of the new Digital Green Pass will be a QR code, which the EU states will enhance “security and authenticity” and be limited to “essential information” including date of birth and a “unique identifier.”
According to TechCrunch.com,
“Asked after the briefing whether or not the EU system will incorporate blockchain components, a Commission spokesman sidestepped the question, saying only: ‘The gateway will link the national public key directories for the signature keys. We cannot yet tell you who will implement this technically.’”
Among the most fervent supporters of the new mandate are countries heavily dependent on tourism such as Spain, Croatia, and Greece – whose economies have been battered by the extended lockdowns.
No Shot, No Travel?
The Digital Green Pass has not been fully supported by the WHO, which stated,
“There are still critical unknowns regarding the efficacy of vaccination such as how much jabs limit the transmission of the virus, how much they protect against asymptomatic infection, and how long the immunity lasts. Considering that there is limited availability of vaccines, preferential vaccination of travelers could result in inadequate supplies of vaccines for priority populations considered at high risk of severe COVID-19 disease.”
It’s important to note that despite the WHO criticism of the Digital Green Pass, it has plans of its own to implement a system for documenting who is and who is not vaccinated. As Euronews reports, Hans Kluge, WHO Europe’s regional director, said while his organization doesn’t agree that vaccination should determine international travel,
“We encourage very strongly, as with any vaccine, that there is documentation, whether it is paper-based or preferably digital, which is why WHO is working on a smart digital certificate. But this is something different than a passport.”
TRENDPOST: This past weekend, Alan Joyce, the CEO of Australian airline Qantas, told the BBC “governments are going to insist” as “a condition of entry,” that international travelers must be jabbed before boarding.
The WHO’s director of digital health and innovation, Bernardo Mariano, told the BBC, “We don’t approve the fact that a vaccinations passport should be a condition for travel.”
Joyce, a clown of a CEO, a cowardly little boy who got a pie smooshed in his face by a farmer when he was giving a speech in Perth in 2017 and did nothing to defend himself or respond to the attacker, is a symbol of the arrogant boys and girls running and ruining the lives of society as they declare dictates for the masses.
Indeed, of a higher order than the peasants of Slavelandia, as reported by The New Daily newspaper, celebrities and billionaires are permitted to bypass Australia’s hotel quarantine system with the sheer power of money. (See article here.)
