Digital Health Passport for Future Travel
Standardised, Interoperable, and Coordinated Approach Needed for Industry-Wide Digital Health Passport Rollout
THE INTERNATIONALLY USED V-HEALTH PASSPORT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SCALE AVIATION AND OTHER SECTORS BACK TO NORMAL IN A FAST AND SECURE WAY
MANCHESTER, UK / ACCESSWIRE / March 2, 2021 / V-Health Passport(TM), the product of British technology company VST Enterprises (VSTE), was a world first in April 2020. The product is in use across the world in education, the workplace, leisure centres, aviation, maritime, construction, and more. Today, it remains the only solution that combines test and vaccination solutions with other needs such as event and travel ticketing.
There are many reports of Covid-19 test and vaccine certificates being counterfeited. VSTE's CEO, Louis-James Davis, warns of the very real and serious threats from the use of health passports that are based on unsafe barcode and QR code technology. These risks range from infringing safe social distancing to potential data breaches from using these less secure legacy code scanning technologies.
On 10 February 2021, in a virtual broadcast hosted by Plug & Play, a panel of industry leaders from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Virgin Atlantic, the European Parliament, Corporacion America Uruguay, Vienna International Airport, Star Alliance and Denver International Airport, discussed the main challenges surrounding the rollout of the technology. In an excellent write-up of the event, Future Travel Experience (FTE) summarised the main issues raised by the panel.
