I don’t really understand why countries, airlines and labs aren’t partnering up to offer some sort of universal Covid travel system that includes proof of vaccination or recovery, PCR testing on departure and arrival, and mutual recognition of standards.

I have been thinking that we, either in Denmark or in the EU, should have closed our borders a year ago, with the possibility of entering through quarantine centers.
Kovler’s idea is possibly better and could easily be implemented today. Even with increased vaccination rates it would still save lives and with new COVID-19 variants, it might prove essential.
Also, there’s this very good animation that shows how the virus spreads and that closed borders might have helped us:
BTW, if we are talking about 2 British variants, an Indian, a Brazilian, 1 or 2 American, a South African etc, why was it again we were not supposed to talk about the original one being of Chinese origin?
