Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed in an interview with CNN on Friday that the idea of Americans carrying “certificates of immunity” is a possibility being considered to identify people who have been infected with the COVID-19 virus and help jump-start America’s economy in the coming weeks.
“Can you imagine a time where Americans carry certificates of immunity?” CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota asked Fauci during the interview.
“You know, that’s possible,” Fauci, answered.
“It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not.”
He added, “This is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit, under certain circumstances.”
