Senior European Union officials on Monday approved the regulations for a digital immunity certificate set to facilitate free movement around the bloc amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The presidents of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the European Parliament, David Sassoli, together with Antonio Costa, the prime minister of Portugal, which currently holds the EU's rotating presidency, said the digital Covid certificate was “a symbol of what Europe stands for.”EFE
