The National Command & Operation Centre (NCOC), in collaboration with the National Database And Registration Authority (NADRA), has laid forth a digital app to check vaccination certificates issued to the people after their vaccination.
The move has been taken after cases of fake certificates surfaced in the media.
The citizens now can verify the authenticity of their vaccination certificates using a digital wallet for the COVID-19 vaccination certificate – Vaccination Pass App – according to the NCOC.
Pak Covid-19 Vaccination Pass App has been launched to facilitate inoculated people.
As per the latest data, 4,343 people caught the virus, and 73 died in the last day.
During the NCOC meeting, the global situation of coronavirus was analysed on the pace of virus transmission, the basis of an increase in the daily count of cases, and vaccination rates in different countries.
Pakistan, as per NHS, has introduced three categories – A, B and C – to deal with Covid-19.
The meeting chose to place 15 countries — Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal, Iran, Iraq, Myanmar, Namibia, South Africa, Tunisia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Libya, Morocco, and Mexico — in category C while the rest of the countries are to remain in category B.
It was decided that inbound travellers of all categories will be tested before arrival. However, travellers from Pakistan can travel from category C countries without any hurdle. The global scenario will be reconsidered on Sept 15.
Countries in category A are exempted from mandatory Covid-19 testing; those in category B have to undergo a mandatory negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of travelling, while travellers from category C are restricted and will only be allowed by the NCOC.
