WHO explained creation of a database of vaccinated against coronavirus

The World Health Organization (WHO) has decided to create a unified database of people vaccinated against coronavirus. This was reported to TASS by the official representative of WHO Tariq Yazarevich.

According to him, the organization is studying ways to electronically record citizens who have been vaccinated against COVID-19. The specialist recalled that “a vaccination certificate is a familiar card that shows which vaccines a person has received.” The usual vaccination record is planned to be available online.

Earlier, the Minister of Health of Russia Mikhail Murashko announced that residents of the country will be able to issue a passport for a coronavirus vaccinated on the portal of state services. You will be able to receive the document automatically in your personal account. Such a function will appear on the site in January.

In Russia, the topic of introducing “covid passports” for vaccinated people has been repeatedly raised. This idea was approved by the director of the Gamaleya Center Alexander Gintsburg , who said that this is” absolutely the right thing “. Member of the State Duma health protection committee Alexander Petrov spoke out against the initiative and called it absurd. December 24, speaker Federation Council Valentina Matvienko compared the idea of ​​special passports for the vaccinated to a dystopia. She asserted that the introduction of such documents in the country is not planned.

As of December 30, there are more than 81.7 million people infected with coronavirus in the world, of which more than 1.78 million have died, another 46.2 million have recovered. Most of the infected are registered in the USA, India, Brazil, Russia and France.
