This weekend the World Health Organization (WHO) had to delete a misleading tweet about the coronavirus.
Unfortunately, several media outlets had already cited it, spreading unwarranted fear about the likelihood of secondary COVID-19 infections.
On Friday, the WHO published a scientific brief on “immunity passports”—the idea that governments should grant special documents to citizens who test positive for COVID-19 antibodies, allowing them to move about freely.
The WHO is correct that scientists have not determined the degree of immunity enjoyed by COVID-19 survivors.
