The British authorities wanted to introduce a "vaccinated passport" in the country. This document will allow citizens vaccinated against a new coronavirus infection to travel abroad.
It is known that work on the passport is already underway. This issue is now being dealt with by specialists from several departments - the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Department of Transport and the Department of Health and Welfare.
By the way, the local government seriously thought about the need to introduce this document after Greece announced its readiness to accept tourists from the UK only if they are vaccinated against COVID-19.
In addition, evidence that vaccination reduces transmission and also prevents serious fatal illness has rekindled the UK debate over whether vaccinated people should have more freedom, The Times reports.
Earlier it was reported that Denmark "stole" the idea of the Bashkir authorities to fight the new coronavirus infection.
