Remember back in March when director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci said the federal government is considering issuing Americans certificates of immunity from the coronavirus?
It hasn’t been discussed in a while so maybe you forgot, but the idea is back and being promoted by former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr Tom Frieden.
Frieden and international human rights attorney, Aaron Schwid write it’s time to carefully design a system of “immunity passports.”
These passports would serve as a form of proof of immunity, allowing people who have immunity to engage in some activities others cannot. That could make it possible to ratchet down protective measures, such as stay-at-home orders and business closures, without increasing health risks. A venue could finally reopen to some performers, fans and staff. Visitors could return more freely to nursing homes and prisons. International travel could increase.
Permission to engage in an otherwise restricted activity. Think about that.
