The head of the State Duma Health Protection Committee, Dmitry Morozov, said that the creation of COVID passports is an important and necessary matter. He spoke on this topic on Tuesday, January 19, at a meeting of the profile committee.
“Now the topic is being raised, for example, COVID-passports. This business is very important and necessary. But you need to understand who and how such information should be used, ”said Morozov.
He added: there is no doubt that this information will be needed for doctors, medics and the Sanitary and Epidemiological Service. In addition, it may be necessary for making managerial and organizational decisions.
According to Morozov, the analysis and processing of information collected as a result of vaccination, including with the involvement of artificial intelligence, opens up “incredible opportunities.”
At the same time, the deputy emphasized that it is necessary to pay attention to the protection of personal data and information systems, as was done in the case of the law on telemedicine.
Earlier, the head of Bashkiria, Radiy Khabirov, announced the introduction of antique passports in the region. They will be received by residents of the republic who have been vaccinated or have had a coronavirus. This will help lift some restrictions and encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
On January 15, the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, said that the introduction of “immune passports” amid the coronavirus pandemic is a topic for discussion. She stressed the importance of not discriminating against any vaccine.
Earlier, on December 25, the director of the Gamaleya Center, Alexander Gintsburg, called the introduction of “covid passports” the right decision.
