Immunity card could mark you free of coronavirus


The card would determine who is allowed to reenter the public

This, as more medical clinics and labs, come out with virus tests.

An immunity card, passport, app or another form of ID would be used to identify people who have been tested as either covid-19 positive or negative.

The card would determine who is allowed to re-enter the public in an effort to gradually open up the country after nationwide lockdowns put in place to contain the virus.

Some US cities have been in lockdown mode for several weeks.

About a half-million COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in the US but experts say that the number of confirmed cases would likely be higher if the country had access to more tests, which are in short supply.

Critics have pointed to several problems including how to determine immunity.

The logistical issues of delivering cards to everyone in the United States and the potential for fraud.
