For months, the mainstream media has been decrying the idea of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccine passports” as some kind of wild conspiracy theory drummed up by “science deniers.” But now, the European Union is introducing them for real, shifting the world one step closer towards a full-fledged mark of the beast.
According to reports, the “EU Digital COVID Certificate,” or EUDCC, was quietly unveiled earlier in the month to verify people’s injection status. There is a digital version for people’s mobile devices and a paper version, available upon request, for those who would prefer not to use technology.
Both versions contain a unique QR code with private information and a digital signature matching one’s identity. Soon, Europeans and those who travel to Europe will be expected to present the vaccine passport as a condition of travel – and eventually as a condition of engaging in commerce.
“Today the European Digital COVID certificate reassures us of this spirit of an open Europe,” announced European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen about the program.
“A Europe without barriers. But also a Europe that is slowly but surely opening up after most difficult times of pandemic. This certificate is a symbol of an open and digital Europe. We developed this certificate in record time. It will make travel in our union easier and it will give Europeans back the freedoms they value and cherish so much.”
