Pentagon scientists have unveiled a microchip implant that can be inserted into the skin and can sense the COVID-19 virus in a person’s bloodstream before they become sick.
They showed reporters on CBS’ “60 Minutes” how the device works. It is inserted into the skin and supposedly senses the COVID-19 virus, and when connected to a dialysis machine, can flush the virus out of the body before an individual gets sick.
‘You put it underneath your skin and what that tells you is that there are chemical reactions going on inside the body, and that signal means you are going to have symptoms tomorrow,” said former colonel Matt Hepburn, who now works for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
While this technology may be highly advanced and perhaps effective at stopping the spread of COVID-19, the proliferation of such microchip solutions risks the creation of a dystopian environment that puts anything George Orwell prophesied to shame.
