WHO will use blockchain to track coronavirus data

A number of large companies and organizations plan to use blockchain to validate data on the COVID-19 pandemic.

World Health Organization, China National Health Commission, Microsoft, IBM, as well as universities and other companies intend to create an information highway based on the MiPasa platform, built on the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain.

The participants will organize a consortium that will develop a project to analyze and validate data from foci of infection. This will help to gain access to reliable information, supplement it with new data on the distribution or results of vaccine testing..

Organizations will not only use reliable sources, but also build new analytical tools that will help overcome the crisis, including applications that can determine whether a person is infected..

Many developers have already offered to help in the development of the project for free.
