The global death toll from the new coronavirus pandemic passed 200,000 claims on Sunday, as the World Health Organization warned against “immunity passports” for recovered patients, seen as a tool possible for countries preparing to reopen their economies.

WHO opposes these “passports” because recovering the virus may not protect a person from reinfection.

“There is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from # COVID19 and who have antibodies are protected from a second infection,” the United Nations health agency said in a statement.
