Very soon, you’ll be hearing this question: “Where are your papers?”
Well, sort of. A top travel industry association is the final stages of developing a digital passport for international travelers so they can prove they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19.
The International Air Transport Association said Saturday that the passport could be key to saving the tourism industry.
“Testing is the first key to enable international travel without quarantine measures. The second key is the global information infrastructure needed to securely manage, share and verify test data matched with traveler identities in compliance with border control requirements,” association CEO Alexandre de Juniac, said in a statement obtained by The Hill.
For travelers who receive the vaccine – when one becomes available – proof will be linked to their official passports. While no country now requires such proof, industry experts say that’s likely coming.
Airlines for America, a trade association that represents major carriers, also has not declared that flyers will need proof of a vaccine before flying, saying U.S. airlines are “committed to restoring service in a manner that prioritizes the safety and wellbeing of our passengers and employees.”
But CEO Alan Joyce of Qantas Airlines, an Australian carrier, said last week that once the vaccine is made available, proof will become standard practice around the world.
“We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say for international travelers that we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft,” Joyce told The New York Times.
The Australian government has said that coronavirus vaccines will be “as mandatory as you can possibly make it.”
Pfizer Pharmaceuticals said on Nov. 9 that results from its most recent human trials on its coronavirus vaccine show it is more than 95% effective. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said that once his company’s vaccine is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, it will be shipped quickly to locations in the U.S.
On Nov. 18, a new vaccine from drug maker Moderna – developed in conjunction with the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed – emerged and is also nearly 95% effective. But does not have to be kept at sub-zero temperatures like the Pfizer version, the company said.
And last week, AstraZeneca and Oxford University said their jointly created COVID-19 vaccine has proven to be up to 90% effective.
“These findings show that we have an effective vaccine that will save many lives,” said Oxford University professor Andrew Pollard, who served as the lead investigator for the drug’s trials. “Because the vaccine can be stored at fridge temperatures, it can be distributed around the world using the normal immunization distribution system. And so our goal … to make sure that we have a vaccine that was accessible everywhere, I think we’ve actually managed to do that.”
Pfizer projects making up to 50 million doses in 2020 and up to 1.3 billion doses in 2021. Moderna projects 20 million doses in 2020 and up to 1 billion doses in 2021. And AstraZeneca projects to make up to 3 billion doses of the vaccine in 2021.
Not only will a vaccine be ready before the end of 2020, it could be in use within weeks.
HD Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?
The imposed restrictions have been met with little to no objections as the masses have essentially acquiesced to the mandate. It seems that many have made drastic lifestyle changes under the banner of a coming vaccine, which is being touted as “The Golden Ticket,” if you will, to get one’s life back, to get one’s freedom back.
Sadly, the masses will clamor for the said vaccine out of utter exasperation and desperation so as to be given back that which was taken from them in the first place. I can’t wait to not have to wear a mask.
However, there will be those who refuse it, which will then lead to a system of validation vis-a-vis certification in the form of a vaccine identification. We’ve talked about this in-depth over the last several weeks. Absent this proof of vaccination, you will not get your life back, and you will be required to continue wearing a face mask in public.
Pastor Farag also pointed out that what we are seeing today with mask mandates is preconditioning for the mark-of-the-beast spoken of in Revelation 13 in which a global government, headed by the Antichrist, will mandate a “Mark” that without it no man might buy or sell:
You’ll forgive me for saying this, this way but “mask” is one letter away from “mark.” That’s not a play on words. And if you really think about it? Right now, currently, I cannot, like you, go into a store and buy anything unless I have an M-A-S-K. It’s not going to be long; the handwriting is on the wall before that M-A-S-K will become the M-A-R-K. And without the M-A-R-K, you cannot buy or sell or do anything.
Revelation 13:16-18 KJV – “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
