As more and more countries have focused on massive vaccinations, the ease of restrictions, and the introduction of digital #covidpassport, several concerts have been raised.
Firstly, there are different versions of these passports, making the lack of standardisation a burden for everyone.
Also, it has not yet been used on a cross-border basis, and I think that if we want to accept and use it on a grander scale, governments will have to overcome immense logistical challenges.
Also, there are concerns about discrimination and fraud and encouraging risky behaviour, making it a privacy minefield.
However, as the debate continues, I believe that with global collaboration and coordination it will be possible to implement secure, interoperable systems for all citizens.
