If you’re like me and you live in the United Kingdom, you will have spent the last three months also in lockdown due to the pandemic of COVID-19. After spending months sitting at home doing next to nothing, seeing no one outside of my household, I personally can’t wait to go out and see my friends and family again.
The question of whether lockdown has been lifted too soon is a big one to ask but it is not one that we’re going to look into today as even though many countries are looking to reopen the doors, there is a massive fear that the cases in coronavirus will spike due to this easing of the lockdown.
Civic technologies, a digital identity start-up has recently entered a partnership with Circle medical. This new collaboration will allow for companies with more than 500 employees to verify whether or not their workforce has been tested for the virus.
For those that don’t know, circle medical is an affiliate of the San Francisco UCSF health hospital group.
Of course, this process is yet another question of whether it is okay to put personal data on a blockchain and network. The co-founder of blockchain research Institute and the author of financial services revelation, Alex Tapscott has said that proof of health solutions like these are going to play a major role in the future following COVID-19.
He further said:
“This pandemic has demonstrated the need for easy access to people’s private information, to help mitigate spread, while also showing us the risks of going too far, with China being an example of a country that has no limits when it comes to violating personal privacy. Blockchain in many ways has emerged as a bridge between these wants, allowing us to easily access sensitive data, while also protecting personal privacy.”
