Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday proposed using a digital health code system as a “fast track” for orderly travel between countries while calling for stronger international coordination to reestablish cross-border movement amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“We need to further standardize policies and establish fast tracks to facilitate the orderly flow of people,” Xi said according to a transcript obtained by the outlet.President Xi Jinping speaking at the G20 summit that opened on Saturday with appeals by the world's most powerful leaders to collectively chart a way forward as the coronavirus pandemic overshadows this year's gathering.

A QR code is a type of barcode that can be scanned and processed by smartphones. According to the paper, a green code indicates a healthy status while yellow and red mean the person must quarantine. China has been using the method to keep track of the health status of citizens and their travel records since February.
It was not immediately clear whether other countries would take part in the system.Workers in protective suits administer a COVID-19 test in Wenchang in southern China's Hainan Province on Sunday.

Reutersreported.“China is willing to strengthen cooperation with other countries in the research and development, production, and distribution of vaccines,” Xi said. “We will fulfill our commitments, offer help and support to other developing countries, and work hard to make vaccines a public good that citizens of all countries can use and can afford.”
