Out of the kindness of their heart, China has volunteered to the World Health Organization (WHO) that they would be happy to build a system used worldwide to track travelers who have been vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to USAA News, China has offered to complete a system to track travelers who have received the COVID-19 vaccine:
China launched a new domestic travel policy allowing more freedom to people who have received the vaccine. Now, Beijing wants the WHO’s approval to launch a global vaccine certification system for international travel because it can “help by sharing its experience with and provide technical support.”
China believes it is “the most experienced country in using a health code system in the world.”
Speaking to Aljazeera, a spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry said that a system would “help promote world economic recovery and facilitate cross-border travel.”
“In terms of technology, I believe that Chinese companies can build an international platform in just one week, but it is better that the WHO, rather than any country or regional organization, be the organizer to ensure the independence, fairness and data security of the platform,” the Director General of Information Consumption Alliance, Xiang Ligang, told the Global Times, a state-run news outlet.
But the WHO is not welcoming the idea. Besides, very few countries would accept a system created by China – for several reasons, including the country’s bad record with transparency and the fact that it is the country where the outbreak started.
Of course, this is a horrible idea. Give the country that let loose this COVID-19 bioweapon information on all travelers worldwide and personal information on all of them. No need for privacy or individual freedom in this scenario. Also, would those who are outspoken against China be treated the same as those who aren’t?
This is such a bad idea we wonder if Biden/Obama will go for it.
