Top Dem Says People ‘Ought’ To Have Barcodes To Prove COVID-19 Vaccination

Should the people who receive the coronavirus vaccine be required to have a barcode to prove it?

The very idea was floated by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who said in a tweet “there ought to be” such a system.

“Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated – like a bar code they can download to their phone? There ought to be,” Yang tweeted ahead of the weekend.

“Tough to have mass gatherings like concerts or ballgames without either mass adoption of the vaccine or a means of signaling,” he added.

“I’ve been tested at a photoshoot or interview and gotten a bracelet showing I was negative. Then we could interact more freely,” the Democrat also said.

As the Daily Caller reports, a very similar idea was floated by China’s Communist government:

Chinese President Xi Jinping previously urged for the use of QR codes in order to monitor the coronavirus worldwide, CNN reported. The method is already used in China to track individuals’ health and travel data.

The electronic code changes color depending on the level of possible contact with the virus, CNN reported.

Conservative Twitter accounts such as the Reagan Battalion and others criticized Yang’s tweets.
