The Chinese Communist Party is urging the World Health Organization (WHO) to let it develop and take ownership of a database for the newly proposed ‘vaccine passport’ program which will document every person on Earth’s COVID-19 vaccine status.
The Communist Party launched its domestic “vaccine passport” system Wednesday, despite W.H.O. officials urging countries not to implement such a system due to unequal access to vaccines and the variety in the quality of the available offerings around the world, reports Breitbart.
The “vaccine passport” — A digital certification that confirms a person has received a coronavirus vaccination — joins China’s larger “social credit system,” which judges every citizen and awards them numerical “scores” based on how much the Party approves of their behavior. The behavior judged can vary from littering and volunteering, which result in respectively lower or higher social credit scores, to the display of public opinions either in favor or against the Communist Party.
This comes at a time when airline companies in the United States are begging the White House to develop federal guidance for temporary health credentials that would keep track of travelers’ negative COVID tests and proof of vaccination.
China’s most prominent propaganda newspaper, the Global Times, published a story explaining how the CCP would build an international “vaccine passport” surveillance system in only a week by utilizing its vast technology infrastructure.
“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,” explained Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Beijing-based Information Consumption Alliance.
According to Xiang, the WHO can draft the rules, procedures and data format while China would provide support in sharing experience and techniques in setting up such a platform as the country has rich experience in this and has realized data sharing between the health code platforms of different Chinese provinces and regions.
If that wasn’t enough, Chinese officials are reportedly attempting to convince the administration of President Joe Biden to recognize China’s homemade vaccines as effective to implement such a plan, in exchange for China recognizing American-made vaccines, reports Breitbart.
