(October 18, 2013) Deloitte Launches PopulationMiner to Deliver Health System Insights Based upon Next Generation Real World Evidence Platform
NEW YORK, Oct. 16, 2013 – Deloitte today is announcing the upcoming release of PopulationMiner, a real-world, data-analytics
solution for gleaning insights and relationships among drugs and diseases across broad patient populations
over time and spanning multiple therapeutic and clinical areas. "With the shift towards value-based, personalized care,
it's key for life-sciences decision makers to have deep insights into complex, real-world populations,"
said Brett Davis, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and general manager of Deloitte Health Informatics.
"PopulationMiner enables a better understanding of health and disease by supporting population stratification
and advanced analytics based on disease type, stage and comorbid combinations.
With a few clicks, this platform can provide an unprecedented level of nuanced insights from millions of patients,
leveraging informatics and clinical expertise from Deloitte and Intermountain Healthcare."

(May 2016) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the inaugural ID2020 summit brought together over 400 people to discuss how to provide digital identity to all,
a defined Sustainable Development Goal including to 1.5bn people living without any form of recognized identification.
Experts in blockchain and other cryptographic technology joined with representatives of technical standards bodies
to identify how technology and other private sector expertise could achieve the goal.
In 2019, ID2020 started a new digital identity program in collaboration with the government of Bangladesh and vaccine alliance Gavi.
Participants: Accenture, Microsoft, Avanade Inc, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Cisco Systems Inc have contributed their expertise to ID2020.

ID2020, also known as the Digital Identity Alliance is a mostly Bill Gates sponsored push for a digital identification for all people in the world,
which will "will stay with you for life", and allegedly "no individual or institution can duplicate, modify, or delete".
It is an alliance of public-private partners, including UN agencies, UNICEF and civil society. It’s an electronic ID program
that uses generalized vaccination as a platform for digital identity.
"What they really want is a fully standardized data collection and retrieval format, and cross-border sharing of identities of the entire population of the planet,
in order for the stand-alone AI-powered command center to work without a hitch, and for purposes of calculating everyone’s potential contribution, and threat to the system,"
explains OffGrid Healthcare.

There is no one-size-fits-all for identity.
A global system for identity therefore initially requires the construction of discrete identity networks,
and then the creation of rails between them. Creating a global solution for identity is a two-step process: the key to building a global system for digital identity
is first building successful natural identity networks that address the unique needs and preferences of their user group and situation,
and then building connective tissue that creates interoperability between these systems.
1. Implementation: Configuring natural identity networks
- The configuration of natural identity networks will be guided by the decisions made against the primary and secondary dimensions of choice.
2. Interconnection: Building the rails for global identity
- Building the rails between natural identity systems will create global interconnection and interoperability.

Building identity as a two-step process enables identity systems to be built by narrowing the required stakeholders to groups that have
similar needs and concerns, and therefore have relatively aligned incentives. It also ensures that these systems are tailored to the specific needs
and wants of their user and stakeholder groups and will therefore gain the uptake that a top-down, one-size-fits-all systam would not attain.
However, these solutions should also be built following a common framework that will ensure interoperability by defining the features,
attributes and requirements of the identities that are exchanged in the system. This reinforces the need for individual identity systems to be built by entities
such as financial institutions that have experience working together to define standards, and then building individual systems within these standards.
Implementing discrete digital identity systems that suit the unique needs and cultural factors of users in their own jurisdictions,
and designing these systems around resilience, interoperability and interconnection, will allow a global blueprint for digital identity to emerge.

(November 17, 2016) The UN and big tech are harnessing blockchain technology to give refugees identification
ID2020 was started by a pioneer of financial technology, John Edge,
who told Apolitical, 'If you create a new derivative contract, it's like a human being born.
At a summit ID2020 organised at the UN headquarters in New York earlier this year, Marley Gray, who runs Microsoft's work on blockchain,
said, 'We have a sort of technological perfect storm.
First is the cloud, then very inexpensive mobile devices,
and then this notion of establishing secure identity not just for individuals, but for everything,
to be able to track and transact securely. The challenge is not necessarily the technology or the organisation, it's bringing it all together.'
ID2020 is not trying to put forward one particular solution. Rather, it has convened a group including development agencies, think tanks
and companies such Microsoft, PWC, Cisco, Accenture and Deloitte
to spend the years to 2020 figuring out what a solution might look like.

(January 25, 2017) Trump’s executive order on immigration addresses biometric entry-exit tracking system
President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday which includes a series of initiatives to address immigration, including a proposal to establish a national biometric ID program
for non-citizens entering and leaving the U.S., according to a report by Payments Source.
The biometric ID system could potentially have a huge effect on the security industry,
along with financial services risk strategies, according to payments experts.
A national biometric ID program would see large amounts of money paid to biometric solution vendors,
and ultimately place biometrics as a security method over existing authentication methods like passwords and PINs.
“This could lead to an enactment and requirement of multi-factor authentication with the mobile phone
being the new hardware,” Richard Crone, a payments consultant said. “The government would not have to pay for any new hardware in that case.”

(September 14, 2017) Mark of the Beast: Digital Identity and the Cashless Cartel
On June 19th, 2017, approximately 300 people gathered at the United Nations for the second annual ID2020 Summit.
The ID2020 Alliance, a consortium of public and private organisations, was launched there.
The summit was attended by representatives of UN organisations such as UNDP (United Nations Development Programme);
UNECLAC (United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean);
UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees),
and UN OICT (United Nations Office of Information and Communication Technologies).
Participating organsiations included: Accenture; Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Biometrics Institute; Gavi (the vaccine alliance);
General Electric; IBM; IrisGuard; MasterCard; Microsoft; One World Identity; Open Society Foundation (George Soros); PwC; Rockefeller Foundation; Standard Chartered Bank; Unique Identity Authority of India; Verizon; the World Economic Forum, and HSBC bank.  

(December 6, 2017) This New Blockchain Project Gives Homeless New Yorkers A Digital Identity
Three thousand homeless people in New York
are about to receive a special holiday gift: a free smartphone
that allows them to manage their digital identity,
access shelters and food pantries,
and make use of financial services.
The initiative, which uses blockchain technology,
may be the first time a distributed computer ledger
has been employed to help a homeless population.

(December 6, 2018) Mastercard and Microsoft have a frightening plan to create universal “digital identities”
The companies are building a solution that would create a “universally-recognized digital identity.”
To the corporations, this is a brilliant solution! To everyone else, it may feel more than a bit dystopian.
What this announcement seems to be describing is a streamlined identification system: a not-too-far-off world where people are identified under a universal protocol
that checks in on them at various points during their lives–when they vote, when they get married, etc. It’s the kind of a citizen-check system a totalitarian regime could only dream of.

(March 27, 2019) Apple Card secures payments with smartphone biometrics as Mastercard plans for digital trust
Apple has announced a new digital-first credit card built into the iPhone Wallet app with a range of security and privacy features,
including integration of Touch ID and Face ID biometrics, TechCrunch reports.The new Apple Card, launched in partnership with Mastercard and Goldman Sachs,
brings the security of biometric authentication to online purchases, and also features a dynamic card verification value (CVV) security code.

(June 17, 2019) ID4Africa 2019 promises debate on biometric data and ID issues as market matures
Acting Director General of South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs Thulani Mavuso
spoke about the importance of legal and digital identity, biometrics, and civil registries,
as well as the challenges created by undocumented people moving between countries.
Atick reviewed recent developments in the ID4Africa movement,
including the launch of the Roundtable of African Data Protection Authorities (RADPA),
the launch of the ID4Africa Identity Council (IIC),
and the inclusion of Mastercard as a Thematic Partner to promote identity for inclusion.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Omidyar Network
have worked with ID4Africa to bring a number of organizations
concerned with social and financial inclusion to the dialogue.

(June 28, 2019) Mastercard and Orange: why global brands are delving into African biometrics
The speed at which African nations are implementing biometric systems for national ID and electoral rolls
has created something of a goldrush for the biometrics industry, as the recent ID4Africa 2019 conference in Johannesburg highlighted.
Other players not necessarily associated with ID and biometrics
have taken notice and are joining the field. Mastercard was even a major sponsor of ID4Africa,
promoting its efforts in identity inclusion. Another global brand, French telecom Orange,
which also has mobile payments as a key part of its business,
was present to showcase how governments can utilize their agents as a ready-made network of biometrics capturers.
“If you think about if from our perspective, the more people who are integrated into the global digital economy, the better for our bottom line,”
Antonia Stroeh, Senior Vice President of Government and Development at Mastercard told Biometric Update.
Agencies may find benefits in being able to recognize when they are both dealing with the same individuals,
said Stroeh, such as the Ministry of Agriculture seeing that a fertilizer subsidy scheme correlated with improved health indicators from the receivers,
all the while not knowing the identities of those individuals.
Use cases include health – partnering with the vaccination alliance GAVI for digital record-keeping for vaccinations;
in education where Kupaa creates a digital administration for a school tracking attendance
and collecting fees and in aid situations where an aid organization can know to whom it has distributed cash
without having to own and manage a secure database of the recipients.

(July 1, 2019) Former UK PM Tony Blair urges governments to sort out online ID
In a foreword to the report from the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change
- a not-for-profit organisation which has received £9m in donations from Saudi Arabia
- Blair said the UK has failed to crack digital identity.
He said this "has been a major constraint" in public services.
"In the internet era, governments should see software and data as an essential, enabling platform for others' activity,
with new security technologies now addressing previous concerns over identity systems."
But don't worry, he is not looking relaunch his government's previous failed attempt at ID cards.
Instead the report calls for a "a decentralised electronic identity system to all citizens as the flagship digital infrastructure reform."

(December 12, 2019) Australia, Canada look to digital identity solutions to get rid of physical ID cards
Mastercard has rolled out a new digital identity pilot in Australia this week that can identify a person in both digital and physical environments,
the company announced. Mastercard is testing different ways of proving identity without having to rely on multiple physical documents or centralized identity databases.
The project is based on a distributed model that, when activated, uses information from the mobile device
which has been checked through additional reference points, such as the person’s bank or government agencies taking part in the pilot.
The pilot program is carried out in partnership with Australia Post which will use the existing digital ID solution to enable Australians
to identify themselves when using the services, and with Deakin University where student volunteers
will test an identity verification process for student registration and digital exams.
Canadian province Quebec is also looking into biometrics to confirm online identity and get rid of traditional physical government IDs by 2021, writes CBC.
The government is waiting to see if any companies in the private sector would be interested in taking over the project. Details about cost have not been revealed.

(January 30, 2020) Accenture, Google hope to lure Big Pharma clients GSK, Pfizer and more to new data platform
Google Cloud President Tariq Shaukat heard "an overriding sentiment" when he spoke with pharma and life science executives
recently at the annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference: The pharma industry is behind in modernizing and using digital technology.
To that end, his company is partnering with Accenture
on an open architecture platform to accelerate discovery,
research and delivery for pharma and life sciences companies. Accenture’s platform, called Intient,
strikes an exclusive partnership with Google Cloud to migrate all parts of the now seven-year-old technology onto a single end-to-end architecture with Google.
The intent is to combine Accenture’s industry experience and connections with Google's data analytics and artificial intelligence capabilities.
Intient clients include GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Bayer and many other top 25 pharma companies,
said Simon Eaves, group chief executive of products at Accenture.

(January 31, 2020) Mastercard invests in online and offline identity startup Trust Stamp
Mastercard has made a strategic investment in AI-generated identity authentication company Trust Stamp.
Trust Stamp is a graduate of the 2018 Mastercard Start Path accelerator programme.
The two companies introduced their first collaboration with a secure non-PII authentication network
for both online and offline environments at the June 2019 ID4Africa conference in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Shashi Raghunandan, Mastercard's senior vice president for humanitarian and development programmer says:
"This is part of our commitment to make the digital economy work for everyone, everywhere.
The size of the investment was undisclosed.

(May 22, 2020) Immunity Passports and the Perils of Conferring Coronavirus Status
Recently, Onfido submitted a proposal to members of the U.K. Parliament’s science and technology committee,
as they consider ways to lift stay-at-home orders, including the development of immunity passports.
COVI-Pass is an immunity passport that uses VCode—a proprietary cryptographic image, similar to a QR code
—that can be scanned at a distance of a hundred metres. It will reveal if a person has tested positive for antibodies,
flash green if a person has tested negative for the virus, and red if tests show that they have the virus or don’t have antibodies,
or if their test result has expired. (A yellow light shows when it’s time to be retested.) The app can “geo-fence” a point of entry, prohibiting visitors with a red light from entering a building or stadium or school.
“I believe that all governments will move toward a global health passport, which will be as common as carrying a driver’s license
or a passport, because this is not going to be the last pandemic we have,” Adam Palmer, the C.O.O. of COVI-Pass, said.

(May 28, 2020) Advisor resigns from ID2020 objecting to blockchain immunity passports for COVID-19
Elizabeth M. Renieris, a Harvard lawyer on the ID2020 technical advisory committee, has resigned from the ID2020 Alliance.
Renieris’ resignation was driven by concerns that the organization will get involved in COVID-19 immunity passports, as Coindesk first reported.
The ID2020 Alliance was founded by Accenture, Microsoft, Gavi, Rockefeller Foundation and IDEO. Partners include Mastercard, which joined last week, as well as NGOs and UN agencies.
Renieris believes immunity passports could potentially infringe privacy rights for tests that are unproven and that the identity and blockchain standards are still a work in progress.

(May 28, 2020) Consumer anticipation of biometric payments surges as contactless takes over from cash
Cash is disappearing and payment cards are being used more, shifting consumer attitudes about biometrics for payments
and presenting a major opportunity for fingerprint cards, a new survey report and a pair of company posts suggest.
More than half of Canadians expect that biometrics will be part of the way they purchase things within the next decade,
according to a new survey. As a Research Co. shows credit card purchases doubled during COVID-19 lockdowns to 50 percent of all transactions,
up from 24 percent in February 2019. Another 31 percent of payments were processed with debit cards,
and 4 percent through e-transfers or with a smartphone, compared to only 3 percent with cash.

(June 1, 2020) ID2020 Advisor Questions Corporate Interests in Resignation Letter
Elizabeth Renieris has resigned from the ID2020 Alliance, and penned a scathing critique of the organization on her way out the door.
She specifically argues that the Alliance’s original objectives have been compromised by corporate interests,
and that the organization is now so fixated on digital identities that it is willing to sacrifice civil liberties to accomplish its aims.
ID2020 Advisor Questions Corporate Interests in Scathing Resignation Letter “At this stage, I can no longer even describe what ID2020’s mission is with any confidence,”
wrote Renieris in her resignation letter. “All I can perceive is a desire to promote decentralized identity solutions at all costs.”

(June 3, 2020) Portable digital identity solution with face biometrics successfully exits FCA regulatory sandbox
A reusable digital identity solution leveraging face biometrics and developed by Onfido, Deloitte, and Evernym
has successfully exited a regulatory sandbox pilot with the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA),
which the company’s say shows that portable digital ID is now market-ready.
“Now that we’ve proven the model in one of the toughest regulated markets in the world,
we’re rapidly proceeding to apply it to other geographies and services
as well such as renting a car, self-checking into a hotel and one day, even voting.”
“When you put the individual in charge of her digital identity,
everyone wins. It gives consumers the freedom to securely move about the digital world,
and businesses the ability to finally know and trust who they are interacting with.”

(June 6, 2020) In the AI era, your voice could give away your face
MIT researchers trained a machine learning model to reconstruct a very rough likeness of someone’s face based only on a short audio clip.
From algorithms that can automatically tag you in photos, to face recognition systems embedded in city surveillance systems
to voice generators that can put words in people’s mouths, AI is dismantling privacy.
A new tool is peeling back the curtain a little more, with a method to figure out what your face looks like from your voice.
The paper, “Speech2Face: Learning the Face Behind a Voice,” explains how they took a dataset
made up of millions of clips from YouTube and created a neural network-based model that learns vocal attributes associated with facial
features from the videos. Now, when the system hears a new sound bite, the AI can use what it’s learned to guess what the face might look like.

(June 16, 2020) Pangea and IDnow pitch biometric immunity credentials, Nomidio CEO calls for trusted identity guardian
Pangea has launched an end-to-end platform for issuing biometric smartcard-based COVID-19 immunity or travel credentials
in an effort to support the global airline and tourism industries. The company says global health experts agree that a solution
to expedite the flow of passengers is necessary to enable a recovery in the air travel industry.
Pangea proposes a card with a photo of the person, a digital signature, a chip and a hologram. The card can be securely linked to the records
of a country’s medical authority, and include encrypted data on the holder’s profile to verify the individual has tested negative or has immunity to the virus.
Pangea says it is in talks with several governments regarding the use of the biometric card.
The company plans to expand the smart card system’s capabilities to make it a full scale medical ‘passport.’

IDnow likewise says it is in talks with the UK government to create “immunity passports” for people who have recovered from COVID-19.
Since launching in the UK last year,
IDnow says its AutoIdent has been in enormous demand from companies seeking to check the security features of ID documents with the artificial intelligence-based software.
Major UK companies adopting IDnow’s technology include BP, Macropay, Holvi, Allied Irish Banks (AIB) and GVC, according to the announcement.
Demand in regulated sectors like finance and gaming has been particularly strong.

(July 24, 2020) Biometric digital health credentials for NHL and London theatre, Privacy International warns of risks
As biometrics and other digital identity technologies are deployed to enable big league sports to resume operations,
National Hockey League players and staff will use Clear’s Health Pass
to protect against the spread of COVID-19, Vox reports.
Health Pass was launched in May, and provides health status attestation,
temperature scans, and potentially links to test results, underpinned with biometric identity verification.
The partnership with the NHL means Health Pass will be used to check the roughly 3,000 players, coaches, and support staff
who are involved in the 24-team playoffs, which will be held in Edmonton and Toronto, Canada.
ID2020 Executive Director Dakota Gruener, Yoti, the Tony Blair Institute, IATA, and Onfido are singled out for “hyping the immunity passport ‘solution’.”
Gruener’s paper, however, notes that digital health credential “systems can only be effective once testing is ubiquitous, convenient, and free,” suggesting that they would not be supported at this time.

(August 6, 2020) ID2020 certifies BLOK BioScience Immunity Passport with self-sovereign approach to digital ID
ID2020 has certified the digital ID immunity passport developed by BLOK Bioscience
as conforming to its conception of “good ID,” the organization announced.
The tool is the first certified by the organization for COVID-19 health status,
allowing users to keep a self-sovereign record of all tests, antibodies and vaccination results.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust digital credentials into the global spotlight,” said ID2020 Executive Director Dakota Gruener
in a prepared statement. “As we consider digital ID-based solutions for public health applications, getting the technology right is not negotiable.
There are currently over 30 technology providers who have submitted applications
to confirm their technologies align with ID2020’s requirements,
though presumably not all applications are for digital health credentials.
Kiva Protocol, Gravity.earth, and ZAKA have also received ID2020 certification for their digital ID solutions.

(August 14, 2020) Immunity passports and the risks to user privacy
According to Privacy International, “The ‘visionaries’ are keen to get back into painting a world driven by identification.”
Already, several identity firms such as OnFido, ID2020, IDNow, Yoti, Circle Pass Enterprises (CPE) and VST Enterprises are racing to develop immunity passport solutions.
Likewise, several countries including Chile, Italy, Estonia, France, Germany, India, U.S, and the U.K, have all expressed interest in so-called immunity passports.
CPE and VST Enterprises for instance have teamed up to create a blockchain technology-based immunity passport known as COVI-PASS, to be supplied to 15 countries
including the US, Canada, Sweden, India, UAE, South Africa, among others. In West Africa, a digital identity firm Trust Stamp in partnership with Mastercard and GAVI
is quietly developing what they call “Wellness Pass” for people who receive vaccinations, including COVID-19 vaccine—when it becomes available.
It enables individuals to be digitally tied to their medical and financial records.
This is an unprecedented attempt to link biometric digital identity systems, health records, and a payment system into a single unified platform.
The linking of health records to digital payment systems in the “Wellness Pass” scheme is an ominous way of compelling people to comply or face starvation.

(August 17, 2020) Plans for digital IDs need to focus on what isn’t yet known
A proposed five-point plan for making digital identities — and anticipated follow-on societal benefits — succeeds where so many similar efforts have failed.
It does not prescribe specific biometric tools for the world as it is today, but calls for governments to address novel challenges related to biometrics with legislation.
Researchers at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change
make only one commandment like statement.
“The broader need for secure, user-centric and reusable digital identity has never been clearer.”
The group’s first point is, indeed, for the government to accept that a digital ID is inevitable.
It is the best way to help economies exit lockdowns without re-igniting the pandemic.

(August 27, 2020) Abbott to ship millions of $5, card-sized coronavirus tests offering 'digital health passes'
The FDA has given its green light to a new coronavirus test from Abbott, which will be sold for $5
and fits entirely on a device about the size of a credit card.
The rapid antigen test is designed to deliver a reading from a nasal swab within 15 minutes
and is paired with a free, optional smartphone app
capable of logging and displaying COVID-19 test results—providing a “temporary digital health pass”
that could help clear people for entry to places such as schools, hospitals, workplaces, airports and elsewhere.
In addition, according to a report today from Politico, the Trump administration has reached a $750 million deal with Abbott
to purchase 150 million tests—which would amount to a substantial increase in U.S. testing capacity, with the country performing 22 million tests last month.

(September 28, 2020) Trump announces plans to ship millions of Abbott's rapid tests to states
President Donald Trump announced plans to distribute millions of Abbott Laboratories’s 15-minute COVID-19 test
in the coming weeks, a move aimed at expanding access and helping reopen schools that are seen as key to getting parents back to work.
The federal government expects to ship 150 million of the Abbott rapid tests,
based on states’ populations, Trump said Monday in a press conference at the White House.
The White House will encourage states—which have ultimate discretion over how to deploy the tests—to use about 100 million
to screen teachers, check symptomatic children to see if they have contracted the virus, or conduct baseline surveillance.

(October 1, 2020) HHS Teams Up with The Rockefeller Foundation to Share Best Practices for Increased COVID-19 Testing
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and The Rockefeller Foundation have signed an agreement
to identify and share effective approaches for using rapid point-of-care (POC) antigen tests to screen
for COVID-19 in communities, with a focus on safely reopening K-12 schools. The partnership establishes a pilot program
with select cities and states in The Rockefeller Foundation's Testing Solutions Group (TSG),
a network of public officials devoted to rapidly scaling COVID-19 testing, tracing, and tracking in their communities.
HHS will provide at least 120,000 Abbott BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card POC SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests to pilot sites.
The initial pilot cities, selected collaboratively with The Rockefeller Foundation, are
Louisville, Ky.; Los Angeles; New Orleans; and Tulsa, Okla.
In addition, Rhode Island has been selected as a pilot state.
The collaboration between HHS and The Rockefeller Foundation builds upon the Trump Administration's national distribution plan
for the Abbott BinaxNOW tests to states, which includes sending millions of BinaxNOW rapid tests to all U.S. states and territories over the next few months.

(October 15, 2020) Google & Oracle to Monitor Americans Who Get Warp Speed’s Covid-19 Vaccine for up to Two Years
During an interview with the Wall Street Journal published last Friday, the “captain” of Operation Warp Speed, career Big Pharma executive Moncef Slaoui,
confirmed that the millions of Americans who are set to receive the project’s Covid-19 vaccine will be monitored via “incredibly precise . . . tracking systems”
that will “ensure that patients each get two doses of the same vaccine
and to monitor them for adverse health effects.” Slaoui also noted that tech giants Google and Oracle
have been contracted as part of this “tracking system”
but did not specify their exact roles beyond helping to “collect and track vaccine data.”
The day before the Wall Street Journal interview was published,
the New York Times published a separate interview with Slaoui
where he referred to this “tracking system” as a “very active pharmacovigilance surveillance system.”

(October 17, 2020) Digital ‘health passport’ trials under way to aid reopening of borders
A new digital “health passport” is to be piloted by a small number of passengers flying from the UK to the US
for the first time next week under plans for a global framework for Covid-safe air travel.
The CommonPass system, backed by the World Economic Forum (WEF),
is designed to create a common international standard for passengers to demonstrate they do not have coronavirus.
Paul Meyer, the CEO at the Commons Project, which was given startup funding by the Rockefeller Foundation
two years ago and created the digital health pass,
said countries that have closed borders and imposed quarantines are looking for ways to “thoughtfully reopen” their borders.
The trial will apply for passengers flying from Heathrow to Newark, US, on a United Airlines flight on Wednesday.
Tests from the private testing company Prenetics
will be administered by the travel and medical services firm Collinson
in Covid-19 testing facilities set up with Swissport.
It follows a pilot by Cathay Pacific on flights between Hong Kong and Singapore.
However, the test used generally in the UK is not a test of infectiousness,
experts have said, as it does not distinguish between those who have the virus and are infectious and those who are no longer infectious.
There have been many false results as a consequence. There is also suspicion that such schemes could provide a way in to greater monitoring
of people’s movements and health statuses, a paper published in the Lancet on Friday said.

(November 23, 2020) Tony Blair Institute and Oracle Launch Africa Vaccine Management in the Cloud
The Tony Blair Institute (TBI) and Oracle have brought cloud technology to Africa to manage public health programs.
Initially, Ghana, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone will use the new Oracle Health Management System
to create electronic health records for their vaccination programs
for yellow fever, HPV, polio, measles, and COVID-19, as soon as that vaccine is distributed to Africa.

In the coming weeks, major airlines including United, JetBlue and Lufthansa plan to introduce a health passport app, called CommonPass,
that aims to verify passengers’ virus test results — and soon, vaccinations. The app will then issue confirmation codes
enabling passengers to board certain international flights. It is just the start of a push for digital Covid-19 credentials
that could soon be embraced by employers, schools, summer camps and entertainment venues.
“This is likely to be a new normal need that we’re going to have to deal with to control
and contain this pandemic,” said Dr. Brad Perkins,
the chief medical officer at the Commons Project Foundation,
a nonprofit in Geneva that developed the CommonPass app.

"At the start of the pandemic, many organizations deployed simple COVID-19 screenings, such as self-reported health surveys,
to support re-entry to workplaces and other institutions," said Paul Roma, general manager of IBM Watson Health.
"Now, as testing becomes more widespread and vaccine distribution gets underway, we are expanding the availability of IBM Digital Health Pass with Salesforce
to help organizations verify an individual's vaccine status and any other relevant health credentials," Roma said.
Big Blue’s health pass app, which debuted earlier this year, aims to provide individual, sharable health credentials following test results, vaccinations
and temperature checks through an encrypted digital wallet on a smartphone. This could also help allow passengers to board airplanes,
concertgoers to enter venues or spectators to attend sporting events. Salesforce also recently introduced a version of Work.com for managing vaccine programs
aimed at governments and healthcare organizations. The company is also working with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance
to help distribute about 2 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines across 190 countries before the end of next year.

according to a Health Ministry announcement reported by MediaNama. The government is currently planning the rollout of a pair of vaccines recently approved
by the Drugs Controller General of India, and those plans are expected to include the voluntary creation of a unique digital ID for health,
and may also include facial recognition to register and track beneficiaries, or biometric devices for online and offline identification.
The system is also expected to include QR-code certificates stored in a digital locker to prove vaccination,
and Aadhaar authentication to prevent malpractice. Other features of CoWIN may include geo-location
for vaccine batches and digital tokens to manage vaccination queues and social distancing.
Other suggestions on the MEITY site for this purpose include the use of Bluetooth and video analytics.

Tony Blair has called on the Government to establish a single global vaccine passport scheme through the G7,
or risk others dictating the rules. In a detailed report published by the Tony Blair Institute (TBI),
he said current border restrictions were “disjointed” and urged the UK to “place the creation of a global Covid-19 travel pass
as a key item on the G7 agenda” - a body which Britain currently leads.
The report added that the much tougher international travel restrictions
announced on Wednesday by the Prime Minister would be much more difficult to eventually unwind without a vaccine passport.
Mr Blair said the passport should be digital and capable of tracking and verifying
an individual’s coronavirus “status” wherever they travel in the world.
Included would be details of any vaccination they had,
together with the results of Covid-19 test results.

who said they were 'looking at the technology'.
One of the recipient projects is led by Enduring Net, which is working on a £49,678 decentralised system
that can digitally provide 'proofs of individuals' Covid-19 credentials', which will include proof of vaccination.
Another project, worked on collaboratively by firms Mvine and iProov, was given £75,000 for a passport
which would be issued in the form of a free app so users could digitally prove they have received a jab.
EAS Technologies' project was given £173,876 to develop an accreditation platform
that hopes to be used by organisers of the 'world's largest sporting organisations, events, and facilities'.

(February 1, 2021) iProov, Onfido, Daon stake out positions as biometrics-backed immunity passports advance

BA to trial VeriFLY on London to US flights

British Airways will be the first UK airline to trial VeriFLY,
a new biometric mobile health app that provides authentication of COVID-related documents,
on flights from London to ten U.S. cities. Starting Thursday February 4th,
BA will be the only airline outside of the U.S. to trial VeriFLY.

In November, American Airlines (BA’s joint business and oneworld partner) began offering VeriFLY
to travelers from Jamaica, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala to Miami.
As of January 23rd, the trial was extended to any international destination to the U.S.
VeriFLY was developed by biometric authentication and identity assurance solutions provider Daon.

Vaccine programs have already begun in some of the 27 countries, and in the UK, iProov has begun trialing its biometric
technology to preserve the privacy of health information within the National Health service.
Tourism dependent countries like Greece, Portugal and Cyprus are advocating more strongly for the EU immunity passport,
which would likely be tied to the individual with biometrics, while France has rejected the notion due to widespread vaccine skepticism.

(February 5, 2021) UK discussing coronavirus immunity passport options for travel
UK ministers are looking into the creation of a digital vaccine passport, government sources have confirmed, Sky News reports.
Research groups are said to have been set up on the subject as attention
turns to what will happen to international travel once jabs are more widely rolled out across the world.

Foreign Office minister James Cleverly earlier avoided confirming the news,
only telling Sky News that countries will "set their own border measures" – as well as defending the delay to hotel quarantine plans.
But The Times reported on Friday that a certification system is being planned by three government departments
to let travellers go abroad to countries that may demand proof of inoculation.

It also said Greece is preparing to waive quarantine rules for those who have been vaccinated.
Sweden's government announced on Thursday it plans to launch a digital coronavirus vaccine passport by summer,
if there is an international standard in place by then. And Denmark also said this week it would launch a first version of the document by the end of February.

Tony Blair is one of those who has been pushing for the UK government to take a lead on the issue,
suggesting last week the UK should take advantage of chairing the G7 and push for other countries to develop the documents.
Turning his attention to what happens next, Blair's institute said the UK should "place the creation of a global coronavirus travel pass
as a key item on the G7 agenda,'' when leaders from the US, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada congregate in Cornwall later this summer.

(February 18, 2021) Vatican employees could lose their jobs for refusing COVID vaccine
The Vatican has taken a hard line against employees who refuse to be vaccinated for COVID-19, warning they risk losing their jobs.
According to a decree by Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, whose role as President of the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State
makes him the territory's top administrator, employees who refuse the vaccine "without proven health reasons" face penalties
that can include "the interruption of the work relationship."

(February 20, 2021) Everything you need to know about Israel’s green passport program
A green passport will be required to enter certain places and to participate in certain activities.
Only people who have been vaccinated or have recovered from coronavirus will be eligible for one.

As part of the program, registered gyms, theaters, hotels, concerts and synagogues will be able to operate starting next week.
The green passport is granted to those who are a week past the second coronavirus vaccination,
or to the around 740,000 people recovered from the virus who currently are not eligible for the vaccine.
