Cathay Pacific to launch digital health passport

According to a report, Hong Kong based airline Cathay Pacific and health start-up Prenetics has announced the launch of a digital health passport. Travelers will be allowed to show their negative COVID-19 test results on a mobile app before boarding, which can potentially ease international travel restrictions. The pilot will begin on the Hong Kong-London route in October 2020. The Commons Project, a Swiss-based non profit organisation backed by the Rockefeller Foundation, is also a collaborator in the project.
