I agree with the overall basis of this article and the need for all unbanked people to be able to get an official ID, even if they are illegal and/ or have no fixed address. The corona virus is having a devastating impact on major economic countries, despite spending enormous sums to support their citizens and business structure.
But much more is necessary for less developed countries to be able to support their citizens, both from the health hazard and the danger of a worldwide recession.
A key factor here will be greater amounts of family remittances being sent, as well as charitable donations, but in order for such funds to reach the intended recipient, they have to be able to pass the AML/ CFT regulations in both the remitting and receiving countries. So, IDs are a key aspect of this; hopefully this crisis will inspire greater urgency in getting this moving everywhere.
