Britain is the first country in the world to be infected with the coronavirus and to issue health passports to people who have recovered from the virus. British workers need to take a health passport to return to work or to go out. For this, the citizens must submit all the data of facial recognition and biometrics. Only passport holders can travel to the office or travel.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government has already begun talks with technology companies. This digital passport will be issued only after corona or antibody (immunity) test. That is why it is also called 'Immunity Passport'. Not just Britain, but several other countries, including the United States, are considering issuing passports to citizens. In the UK, this data will be stored with the Department of National Health.

“V-COVID is a game changer in rapidly speeding up the process of getting critical care key workers and frontline staff back into the NHS and in our hospitals,” said VST Enterprises founder and CEO Louis-James Davis, in the statement. “As a digital healthcare passport, it will also be a critically important asset in getting our other key workers in the blue light emergency services such as police, fire and ambulance services and the military returning back to operational duties quickly and effectively. At the same time this will also help to alleviate the pressure off the NHS and emergency services.”

And in the United States, this information will be stored at all levels of local, state and central government. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has expressed concern over attempts to give citizens special permission to return to work. The Guardian.
