Biometric Passport Trials In Africa

It transpires that testing will soon begin, if it hasn’t already, in poverty-stricken parts of Africa for a biometric ID which will also be your payment system and vaccine record! I wrote earlier this week here about Boris Johnson’s plans for a Covid passport and it seems this is well under way.

The biometric digital identity platform that “evolves just as you evolve” is backed by none other than the Bill Gates-backed GAVI vaccine alliance, Mastercard, and the AI-powered company, Trust Stamp.

The GAVI Alliance, which is predominately funded by Bill and Melinda Gates and the Rockefeller Foundations, which I’ve also written about before, as well as governments and the vaccine industry generally, is concerned with improving “the health of markets for vaccines and other immunization products,” (as opposed to the health of individuals), according to its own


Mastercard’s GAVI partnership is directly linked to its “World Beyond Cash” protocol, which supports its business model and has long depended on minimizing in the use of the cash we have come to be so familiar as a part of oour everyday lives. Up to now at least.

Cash is difficult, if not impossible to track, but if you use a centralized digital currency, governments and other interested bodies can have control over what you can (and cannot) spend.

The program, which was first launched in late 2018, will see Trust Stamp’s digital identity platform integrated into the GAVI-Mastercard “Wellness Pass,” a digital vaccination record and identity system that is also linked to Mastercard’s click-to-play system that powered by its AI and machine learning technology called NuData. 

Mastercard, in addition to professing its commitment to promoting “centralized record keeping of childhood immunization” also describes itself as a leader toward a “World Beyond Cash,” and its partnership with GAVI marks a novel approach towards linking a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system into a single cohesive platform. The effort, since its launch nearly two years ago, has been funded via $3.8 million in GAVI donor funds in addition to a matched donation of the same amount by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. –Activist Post

In early June, GAVI reported that Mastercard’s Wellness Pass program would be adapted in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Around a month later, Mastercard announced that Trust Stamp’s biometric identity platform would be integrated into a Wellness Pass; Trust Stamp’s system is capable of providing biometric identity in areas of the world lacking internet access or mobile coverage and also does not require knowledge of an individual’s legal name or identity to function. The Wellness Program involving GAVI, Mastercard, and Trust Stamp will soon be launched in West Africa and will be coupled with a COVID-19 vaccination program once a vaccine becomes available. Worryingly this Wellnes Pass, which sounds very laudable and worthy, is actually linked to a payment processing function. Perhaps a credit score? How about a social credit score- as currently being used in China?

It appears it’s all linked, and the pandemic is just excuse needed.And is it really to ‘keep you safe’ when there is a survival rate of 99.9%? I note now that SAGE and the government now talk about ‘cases’ not fatalities.

Kind of makes you think.
