In Mexico, the government of the state of Quintana Roo, through the Quintana Roo Institute for Innovation and Technology (IQIT) and GenoBank.io, have signed a collaboration and interoperability agreement, in which the Avalanche blockchain platform will participate. This was reported by Avalanche to Cointelegraph in Spanish.
The initiative aims to fight corruption in the issuance of COVID19 laboratory tests in the Cancun-Riviera Maya tourist corridor.
The clinical analysis laboratories in the Cancun-Riviera Maya tourist corridor certify the results of the SARs-COV2 tests using blockchain technology and cryptographic signature developed by GenoBank.io and by Avalanche, an open source platform for interoperable blockchainsThey declared from Avalancheâ ????.
This technology guarantees that the certificate holder obtained a negative result in a COVID test carried out by a reliable laboratory registered with COFEPRIS. It can be internationally validated that a properly accredited laboratory with a valid hygiene registration reports the test result as negative. The personal data of patients and those responsible for health are protected, ”they later added.
In addition, GenoBank.io is to certify the SARS-CoV-2 detection tests that are “tokenized”. and it will incorporate a cryptographic signature and QR code.
