NEW YORK – From the center of the Govt-19 crisis to the safe reopening trailblazer: New York has introduced the first U.S. vaccine passport in an effort to return to normal.
The digital pass will contain data on the vaccine, but also the results of experiments carried out by Kovit, and will serve as the key to entry into theaters and sports and cultural events.
Built on the IBM operating system, the application is based on blockchain technology that allows users to respect the privacy of their health information. When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo put forward the initiative he strongly desired, he said it was “time to turn the page.” The Excelsior Pass is actually considered the basic tool for restarting the state and especially New York City, which has turned off its lights due to the epidemic. While the virus is still in circulation, turning them over now is not easy, even in the face of the acceleration of vaccines.
Vaccine campaign – The Big Apple, state and US economic machinery vaccination campaign continues: 30% of adults and at least 65-year-olds have received the first vaccine, and the city administers 60 to 70,000 injections each day. At this rate, however, it is still several months to provide immunizations to the other seven million people, including children. Ethnic differences are of particular concern: whites and Asians are vaccinated at a much faster rate than African Americans and Hispanics, and both groups pay a high price for infection based on mortality and morbidity. Like vaccinating residents in affluent areas of the city very quickly.
Way to start again – Beyond the complications, vaccines still represent the only way to restart New York, which was abandoned by hundreds of thousands of residents due to Govt-19. If unavoidable, it will greatly complicate the return to default due to the decline in tax revenue, which has already jeopardized essential services such as the tunnel. Many are optimistic: to return to its old glory, Big Apple may focus on discounted rentals and other offers to attract young people and businesses again, which will trigger a good circle. Others are lower, due in part to the increase in tax burden.
Despite the high taxes levied in New York State along with California, to make up for the gap last year, officials are considering tax increases, with California residents already fleeing, with the risk of encouraging exits to Florida and Texas.
