The following is the [Travel News]: China president proposes global QR code system to boost travel amid pandemic from [Fox News] recommended by TheTourAttraction.com:
The system would keep track of a citizen’s health status and travel records.
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday proposed using a digital health code system as a “fast track” for orderly travel between countries while calling for stronger international coordination to reestablish cross-border movement amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Xi addressed other world leaders at a virtual meeting for the G-20 Riyadh Summit when he said that a QR code system could help open up travel by allowing for coronavirus test results to be recognized internationally, the South China Morning Post reported.
A QR code is a type of barcode that can be scanned and processed by smartphones. According to the paper, a green code indicates a healthy status while yellow and red mean the person must quarantine. China has been using the method to keep track of the health status of citizens and their travel records since February.
It was not immediately clear whether other countries would take part in the system.
China has reported 86,414 total confirmed coronavirus cases as of Saturday.
