News: The World Health Organization has warned against issuing “immunity passports” to people who have recovered from Covid-19. This is because currently there is no evidence that someone cannot be reinfected.

Facts:

  • Immunity passports are certificates of immunity to people who have been infected with the novel coronavirus and have recovered.
  • The certificates would allow people who have recovered from Covid-19 to be excluded from restrictive protection measures and to work outside the house.
  • Recently, Chile announced plans to give immunity passports to patients who have recovered from COVID-19
