Meanwhile on the verus front. From discussion on discord.

"We have also been working on a new mobile wallet with z-transactions and ID support, which may be a few weeks out yet. We are discussing the inclusion of a COVID-19 attestation page on the wallet for your Verus ID that would allow you to have control w/privacy and the ability to show a governmental or institutional attestation to your COVID-19 status, such as recovered/immune/safe for certain public contact work."

"This is not much of a detour, as we already expected to have ID support in the wallet, and organizations and people we are working to help will benefit from this."

"It also won't impact the PBaaS timing."

For what purposes are you/the Verus team working with government/s?

1. Verus is open source and committed to the same values expressed in the vision paper, including privacy and decentralization. Nothing has changed there, and our goal in working with governments is to enable those governments to achieve their goals with respect to COVID-19 data requirements, while doing it in a way that respects privacy as much as possible. To my knowledge, a Verus-based solution is the only one I am aware of with a hope of that being the case. 

Which government/s are you working with?

2. We are working with multiple smaller governments, and working with them does not in any way mean grant control over Verus vision or technology. It means using VerusID to provide a way for attesting to and prove COVID-19 status of an individual while respecting privacy, in a way that can allow recovered/immune individuals to be known safe for certain situations or roles as we get societies moving again. Of course, that is only one use of the identities, and again, this has prioritized some of that work that would still have come after PBaaS out of necessity. 

With which type of government agencies are you working?

3. Lawmakers, advisers, and city or state officials at this point.
