iNews – Vaccine passports raising privacy and discrimation concerns

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In recent weeks, vaccine passports are becoming a more viable pathway out of lockdown restrictions. Instead of using paper documentation, governments want to enter the digital age with vaccine passport apps. However, numerous civil liberties activists are challenging these digital implications. A passport app would require creating a digital ID that contains user’s sensitive medical information.

Containing this type of sensitive information in a vast database poses obvious issues, especially in regards to cybersecurity threats. Big Brother Watch called this splitting of society into vaccinated and unvaccinated as “health apartheid that’s incompatible with a free and democratic country”. Several ministers have also raised concerns over employers using vaccine passports apps for discriminatory purposes.

Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch UK states: ““This dangerous plan would normalise identity checks, increase state control over law-abiding citizens and create a honeypot for cybercriminals.”

      It is said that we won’t be forced to take the vaccines, but passports are exactly that if part of your job survival depends on travelling. Even testing is a threat with nano tech hidden in test swabs that may actually be a pre runner to the vaccine and it may make you sick as to lead to vaccination to ‘protect’ you. Even the free masks may contain parasites (related to Malaria) that will present the SYMPTOMS OF THIS COVID WHEN WEARING IT. Wash free masks in vinegar that will kill parasites. Variants of this covid may actually be various types of malaria parasites being spread around as to simulate the ‘changing, mutating’ covid. Interesting that Zika Malaria is the only contagious type of Malaria as they tested in 2016/2017 that acts like this ‘covid’. This ‘virus’ has never been isolated because it may show up as the same as a malaria type.
