In the United States, if this Governmental action is challenged, Glenn Cohen, the faculty director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology & Bioethics at Harvard Law School, predicts the outcome,
Why? Because COVID-19 is highly contagious and can be spread by those who are completely asymptomatic, by those who look perfectly healthy. Hence, there exists the "compelling government interest" to use extraordinary measures designed to prevent, or at least greatly diminish, the spread of this deadly disease: business closures, prohibitions of social gatherings, lock downs, quarantines, social distancing.
How do we overcome this unparalleled, in our lifetimes, adversity, this reduction in our liberties and quality of life? How do we reopen our countries for business, and regain our health and liberty? In essence, how will the Corona Virus end? How can we return to some semblance of "normal"?
The Solution? Simple: those who are NOT at risk, who can neither transmit the disease nor acquire it, those who are "immune" - can return to work, to a semblance of normalcy.
For persons who are immune, there would be no "compelling government interest" in restricting their movement, congregation, or limiting their economic activity, their travel, who they can associate with, the reopening of their businesses, and the reassertion of their other liberties. In fact, the primary goal of Government and the acquisition of the ultimate societal benefit - is to permit their citizens to get on with the business of living! There are literally hundreds of thousands of such people, those who have survived and, as a result, have most likely acquired a presumptive immunity to the disease. There are more survivors each day, doctors, nurses, police, firemen, first responders, military - who may be needlessly restricted, average Janes and Joes, too, who can theoretically go back to work in safety, both for themselves and for others!!!
Immunity - Do you qualify?
Generally, immunity to any specific disease can be acquired either though vaccination, which, by most estimates, a vaccine for COVID-19 is at least several months away, or, as the current general scientific consensus appears to suggest, by having acquired the disease itself and having survived. It is presumed that, because they have survived, the survivor's body has developed antibodies to fight the virus; the disease is no longer detectable, and the survivor cannot transmit it to others. As a result, survivors are presumed immune (for at least a certain amount of time) to either transmit the disease to others or to reacquire the disease themselves.
"Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, believes a recovered person will have immunity at least for a few months."
There are many studies currently underway around the world on these specific issues, but survivors are being released hourly to their families, and certain countries are permitting the free movement of survivors. Antibody tests are being currently developed and, no doubt at some point, such tests will be used to establish immunity, to set a standard of safety for citizens.
Ultimately, your immunity - however that will be established and defined to an acceptable scientific and public safety standard, will have to be proven.
Are you immune? How can you prove it?
Avers is applying the same processes, procedures and technology developed by its sister company Touchstone Research to verify US military veterans, to allow those who are immune to COVID-19 or at acceptable risk to return to their lives, occupy critical positions for infrastructure, to reopen their businesses - to return their lives and the lives of others to a degree of normalcy.
We do that through our technology which we describe in relative detail on our main page, here. Our ImmuniPass service provides the solution and works in real time to confirm your compliance with and adherence to any local standard, permitting you, thereby, to return your life to a degree of normalcy.
ImmuniPass operates on four qualifications:
ImmuniPass will set its default standards based on CDC recommendations, but ratings can be specified or segmented individually, by population, demographically (age, sex, preexisting conditions), geographically (local order or regulation), or by any other standard depending on any underlying medical, regulation, order or other law enforcement need - and set/reset all in real-time!
Your color code rating is supported by your doctor's and/or laboratory results provided directly to us which we verify, digitally sign and lock, and upload to your private account. There your supporting documents are viewable and downloadable by you. Only with your authorization can your rating and the supporting medical documents be accessed by third parties (by entry of your Personal Identification Code and Account Password, respectively).
Set up your account today!
NOTE: Test results issued to you or sent by you will not be processed. Nor can we accept results from home testing services since there is no "control" over the actual source of any tested specimens. It is your responsibility to request an official copy of all required test results to be sent to us directly from the Laboratory or your physician.
