Plan B: Covid pass creating concern for older generation

Written by Meng Feng

New COVID restrictions being introduced across the UK have sparked concern about the inaccessibility of downloading COVID passes via smartphones.

An NHS COVID Pass will be required to enter large venues from 15 December.

But some older people said they were struggling because there were no clear guidelines to access a digital vision, and some said their phones were too old to download the app.

One interviewee from the city centre told Sheffield Wire that she even had to ask her grandkids for a tutorial.

“People at my age never used anything like that, It’s new to us.”

Another said: “The government can’t force us to get digital proof just for now, we need to learn how to learn to live with the virus for the rest of our life.”

Plastic cards were suggested as an alternative.
