The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against issuing “immunity certificate” or “immunity passport” to people who have recovered from Covid-19, as there is no evidence that they will be protected from a second infection.


  • Under increasing pressure to reopen their economies, parts of Europe and the US have been considering issuing immunity certificates to people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have its antibodies– thus presumed to be immune to the disease.

  • People who are issued these certificates would be allowed to go back to work and move about freely.
