Airline Officially Launches COVID Passport Ahead Of “Global Deployment”

“The experience gained helps prepare for the eventual global deployment of the Travel Pass”

Singapore Airlines has become the first carrier to officially launch a COVID passport, which will display the vaccination status and COVID test results of passengers.

The airline announced that its ‘digital health verification process’ is the first in the world to be modelled on the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Travel Pass framework.

The airline said it had made the move to start trialling the process because it expects such ‘immunity passes’ to become the norm for all airline travel globally.

The company declared that COVID tests and vaccinations are sure to be “an integral part” of air travel for the foreseeable future and that certificates are the most efficient way to “validate a passenger’s health credentials.”

The company proclaimed that the health pass will provide a “more seamless experience” for customers and will be a part of “the new normal.”

The airline noted that all passengers traveling from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore will be mandated to take COVID tests at specific clinics in those cities.

Passengers will be issued either a digital or paper ‘health certificate’ with a QR code, according to the airline’s press release, which will be used as part of check ins and immigration control.

“Together we will demonstrate that people can return to travel with confidence that they are meeting all government Covid-19 entry requirements,” commented Nick Careen, IATA’s Senior Vice President for Airport, Passenger, and Cargo Security.

“This will help ensure that SIA’s customers will be among the first to benefit as governments re-open their borders with testing or vaccination requirements. And the experience gained through collaboration helps prepare for the eventual global deployment of the IATA Travel Pass,” Careen added.

As we reported last month, the IATA, the world’s largest air transport lobby group, expects its COVID travel pass app to be fully rolled out in the first months of 2021.

Scores of airline executives and travel industry officials have now indicated that proof of vaccination, through ‘COVID passports’, will become mandatory in order to fly.

Another ‘COVID passport’ type system known as the CommonPass, sponsored by the World Economic Forum, is also under development.

A further ‘COVID passport’ app called the AOKpass from travel security firm International SOS is currently undergoing trials  between Abu Dhabi and Pakistan.

Hundreds of Tech companies are scrambling over themselves to develop COVID passport systems.

UK: Police Break Down Door, Arrest Man For Violating COVID Quarantine Rules

Faces up to 10 years in jail.

A video shows police in the UK smashing down a man’s door and arresting him for violating COVID quarantine rules.

The shocking clip shows a woman, presumed to be the man’s wife or girlfriend, recording the front door to the property as glass flies into the house while officers break in.

The woman accuses the police of committing criminal damage and threatens to take them to court as a panicked dog runs up the stairs, narrowly avoiding being hit by the glass.

“You’re supposed to be here to protect us!” the woman shouts as the police enter the house.

The two officers ask the woman to step out of the way as she demands their badge numbers.

“Where’s your warrant?” she asks them.

“Martin, you’re under arrest for a breach of COVID regulations, you failed to quarantine in a designated hotel when instructed to do so,” the man is told as handcuffs are slapped on him.

It’s not known where the incident took place, but judging by the accents of those involved it likely took place in or near Liverpool.

Under current UK coronavirus law, people can be fined £5,000 for merely attempting to travel abroad without good reason.

Anyone who lies about where they have returned to the country from or anyone who fails to quarantine in a hotel upon return faces a fine of up to £10,000 and a prison sentence of up to 10 years in jail.

Rand Paul: Fauci Is A “Petty Tyrant”

“His only real theme is ‘do what I say’ even when it makes no sense”

Senator Rand Paul reacted to Anthony Fauci’s declaration that Americans should still not be socialising despite having been vaccinated by labelling the White House medical advisor a “petty tyrant”.

Fauci appeared on MSNBC Sunday and announced that people should still be refraining from eating and drinking together indoors, as well as suggesting that the vaccinated may need more ‘booster’ shots to maintain protection against the coronavirus.

Senator Paul hit back at Fauci, accusing him of  ignoring “100 years of vaccine science”.

Paul added that Fauci’s “only real theme is ‘do what I say’ even when it makes no sense.”

“If you’ve recovered or been vaccinated – go about your life. Eat, drink, work, open the schools,” Paul continued, adding “Enough with the petty tyrants!”

Paul also tweeted links to recent stories of mask madnsss, including the firing of a track coach for not forcing athletes to wear masks during races, and that of a pregnant mother removed from church by police for not wearing a mask.

The Senator also urged Americans to get vaccinated “if you think you need or want it” and then to throw away the masks and reclaim freedom:

Paul has repeatedly clashed with Fauci over the latter’s obsession with masks and lack of clarity on the science of the COVID pandemic.

Most recently, two weeks ago, Paul urged Fauci to follow the CDC’s latest findings that the vaccinated do not carry the virus:

The Senator clashed with Fauci last month, telling him “You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. You can’t get it again.” 

“There’s virtually zero percent chance you’re going to get it and you’re telling people that have had the vaccine who have immunity — You’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated,” Paul charged during the hearing.

Fauci has repeatedly flip flopped on the efficacy of masks, and has admitted that there is little science behind lockdown restrictions.

Nevertheless, Facui still will not drop the mask charade, even suggesting that the world needs to carry on wearing them into 2022, and that children should be wearing them in order to play together, until they are all vaccinated from the age of 6 months old.

People on Volcano-Stricken Island Told They Won’t Be Rescued if They Haven’t Had the COVID Vaccine

Cruise ships will only evacuate the inoculated.

People on the volcano-stricken island of St. Vincent have been told by the country’s Prime Minister that they won’t be rescued if they haven’t taken the COVID vaccine.

Yes, really.

Cruise ships were dispatched to evacuate the island after the 4,000-foot high volcano La Soufrière erupted on Friday.

However, Ralph Gonsalves, the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, gave a press conference warning that those who hadn’t taken the jab would be left to fend for themselves.

“The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship,” Gonsalves said.

16,000 people are being evacuated from the ‘red zone’ areas of the island that are most at risk, but that number won’t include those who for whatever reason haven’t taken the shot.

“If people are willing to welcome you at a time of COVID-19, they will wish you to have the highest level of protection possible,” Gonsalves told the media.

According to local officials, some people don’t want to be evacuated because they are scared they’ll be forced to take the vaccine.

This is another example of how vaccination status is being used by governments around the world to deny people basic necessities, including being rescued from a natural disaster.

Numerous countries are preparing to implement vaccine passports which would deny the unvaccinated from entering certain venues, which could eventually extend to pubs, restaurants, cinemas and shops.
