WHO praises 'phenomenal' promise of COVID vaccines.

The World Health Organization does not recommend countries issuing “immunity passports” for those who have recovered from Covid-19, but is investigating the prospects of using e-vaccination certificates, a WHO medical expert said.

“We are looking very closely into the use of technology in this Covid-19 response, one of them is how we can work with member states toward an e-vaccination certificate,” he told a virtual briefing in Copenhagen.

WHO praises 'phenomenal' promise of COVID vaccines.

The promise of COVID-19 vaccines is “phenomenal” and “potentially game-changing”, World Health Organization European director Hans Kluge said on Thursday, a day after Britain became the first Western country to approve a shot.
