Inside Britain’s race to create digital health passports

The Telegraph | Oct 17, 2020 at 7:00 AM
  • Since the start of the pandemic, the use of digital “health passports” has been touted as a way to side-step lockdown measures that are causing chaos in people’s lives and wrecking the economy.
  • Six months later, the tech community has moved away from “immunity certificates”, pivoting instead to create “health passports” that can testify whether a person has received a recent test and whether their results came back positive or negative.
  • Now Virgin Atlantic pilots and cabin crew arriving at Heathrow are using that same system to be tested for Covid on-site at the airport before their flight, receiving their results straight onto their Yoti App after around 30-minutes.
