Chinese Communist 'Experts' Push WHO to Let China Run Global 'Vaccine Passport' System. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

In a left-handed compliment kind of way, you have to credit the intestinal fortitude of the Chinese Communist Party. As news of the China virus and the virus itself quickly spread from Wuhan and ultimately around the world, the Chicoms of course denied all charges, and instead opted to play offense, principally against the U.S.

And now, as reported by Breitbart, Chinese Communist Party “experts” are pressuring the equally-corrupt World Health Organization to allow China to build and run a global database for “vaccine passports” — digital “certificates” which in theory would document every person who has had a Chinese virus vaccine. Health experts and even the American Civil Liberties Union have warned against unintended consequences, including potential health risks and an unacceptable invasion of personal liberties.

The Chinese Communist Party. Maintaining a digital record of every person on the planet.

What could possibly go wrong? Here’s a bit of background, via Breitbart.

The Communist Party launched its domestic “vaccine passport” system Wednesday, despite W.H.O. officials urging countries not to implement such a system due to unequal access to vaccines and the variety in the quality of the available offerings around the world.

The “vaccine passport” — a digital certification that confirms a person has received a coronavirus vaccination — joins China’s larger “social credit system,” which judges every citizen and awards them numerical “scores” based on how much the Party approves of their behavior.

The behavior judged can vary from littering and volunteering, which result in respectively lower or higher social credit scores, to the display of public opinions either in favor or against the Communist Party.

China’s social credit system has prevented millions of citizens from traveling by banning them from purchasing airplane, train, or public transportation tickets. China is similarly limiting citizens who do not receive a vaccine against the Chinese coronavirus from widespread travel.

In addition to the World Health Organization’s warnings about coronavirus immunity passports, the  American Civil Liberties Organization also rejected such a program. Again, what could possibly go wrong — particularly when the WHO and UCLU warn against it?

China’s Global Times, a state-run propaganda newspaper, said on Tuesday the Communist Party could build an international “vaccine passport” surveillance system in just a week through its large technology companies. As Breitbart noted, the proposal appeared to be a response to the WHO explicitly discouraging countries from creating such a system, based on its concerns about independence, fairness, and data security.

Not to worry. “Chinese experts” noted on Tuesday that China can “help by sharing its experience and providing technical support to the WHO to organize the issue,” the Times reported, “as China is the most experienced country in using a health code system in the world.” Uh-huh. China is also “the most experienced country in the world” at conducting mass surveillance of its own citizenry, violating their human rights for years — and using surveillance as a means to “punish” its citizens when it sees fit.

It gets worse.

As Breitbart reported, Chinese officials are also reportedly attempting to convince the Biden administration to recognize China’s homemade vaccines as effective in implementing its plan, in exchange for China recognizing American-made vaccines.

Think that through. Here’s how the vaccine passport works.

Dr. Michael Ryan, director of the WHO Health Emergencies Program, warned that “real practical and ethical considerations” abound regarding the programs, urging countries not to consider them at the moment.

“Vaccination is just not available enough around the world and is not available certainly on an equitable basis, which would lead to inequity and unfairness … further branded into the system.”

And finally, as even the Global Times admits, a vaccine passport includes a nucleic acid test, serum antibody results, vaccine inoculation, and other information. It has an encrypted code that allows authorities to verify the holder’s personal information.

And then we have Joe Biden, whose mental acuity is steadily on the decline, can’t remember the name of the Pentagon or even own Defense secretary’s name and title, and thinks every American has a Constitutional right to “Badakathcare.” Enough to keep you up at night, sometimes, ain’t it?

One more time, what could possibly go wrong?
