Digital Health Passport moved to mainstream adoption, in particular after COVID-19 pandemic, every country came out with a digital health pass like issuing vaccination information, or else, prohibiting the person to enter most of the public premise, in the next normal era.
As smartphones being so handy and easy to carry, provide real time geolocation tracking, and with the mobile application providing additional information such as digital health, it has become more viable than any paper based documents to carry and for authority to validate the real time change status.
Every country is proactive to isolate and contain the existing and new virus spread and slowly by phase open back all the business sectors in operation, with the co-exist with COVID-19 in mind, what matters is every person required to be showing digital health pass like proof that they already complete the national vaccinations given. While Delta now remains aggressively spread across the globe, new variants in the pipelines start to spread from some parts of the world. It will for sure, will be a never ending saga for human society to co-exist with it, and without further prolonging the economic recovery, most of the country already started the reset initiative and program.
The international issue is the digital health pass is not standardized across all the nations, as each country has their own agenda for building their own app and standards, so in the time being, we will notice some countries will accept certain vaccine types, but not the rest. We do not have the international authority to provide the standard to govern it, it will be a particular hassle for the traveller, as the application required to install and use each country is different.
We can expect before international travel and tourism can be open, domestic need to build up first. If domestic also can not properly execute the recovery program, there is no way for the capable to attract the oversea tourist, where the risk for unknown and next evolved variant of COVID-19 in the pipeline. With this landscape in mind, the travel and tourism sector remain a very challenging sector. Not to mention the COVID-19 pandemic already forced a lot of related business to shut down due to lack of tourist visitation, whether it is tourist attraction, museum, hotel and shopping street or shopping mall.
World is keep changing, and challenges will come out. It shows how the respective business sector and enterprise can cope with the changing world, just like we now reading the news and taking note of the trend toward adoption of a diversified business portfolio to make sure the business possess few competency and instead focus on single line of the business with the help of digital transformation (DT). Let’s get ready and adapt to the change proactively.
