China Suggests QR Code Based Global Travel System

China’s President Xi Jinping has called for a global mechanism that would use QR codes to open up global travel. The codes will majorly help in establishing the health status of a traveler hence making it easier to track the coronavirus.

“We need to further harmonize policies and standards and establish ‘fast tracks’ to facilitate the orderly flow of people,’’ Jinping said.

However, Human Rights advocates warn that the codes could be used for ‘’broader political monitoring and exclusion.’’

President Xi Jinping made the remarks at the G20 summit, an online meeting of heads of state from the world’s largest economies. The summit was hosted by Saudi Arabia and it transpired over the weekend. The Chinese president assured that the codes could be used to recognize ‘’health certificates based on DNA test results.

Mr. Jinping avoided going into details on how the global travel scheme might work. Or how closely it would be modeled on China’s QR code apps. China has largely used these apps to help contain the virus in Mainland China. Mr. Jinping added and said he hopes more countries will join the proposed mechanism.

Mr. Jinping also called for the re-opening of the global economy including restoring “global and industrial supply chains.’’ He said this because he is confident that the QR code system is effective with an example of how China contained the virus effectively.
