Jersey's digital Covid-19 passport system remains down, despite engineers spending two days trying to fix it.

The government insists it is working at pace to get it working again, having discovered a security problem just hours after the system was first launched on Wednesday (20 October).

The system is designed to give islanders a QR code, which can be scanned to prove vaccination status when travelling abroad.

The government hopes to get the service online again by the end of next week.

QR codes are required by certain countries, including France and Scotland.

Anyone who needs one while the system is down should call Jersey's coronavirus helpline on 0800 735 5566.
