This may sound like events coming out from Sci-fi movies but this time is real and not from any Hollywood movies or tv shows.
US-based Medical researchers at the Pentagon has developed a new method of detecting the dreaded covid-19 virus under human skin.
The new revolutionary technology was produced by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which operates under the Pentagon umbrella, according to Sunday night’s broadcast of “60 Minutes.”
The top-secret unit was launched during the Cold War to study emerging technologies for military use — among them, innovations to defend soldiers from biological weapons.
Retired Army Col. Dr. Matt Hepburn, an infectious disease physician, revealed that the microchip, which is not in widespread use outside the Defense Department, could detect COVID-19 in an individual well before a patient zero spawns an outbreak.
He said: “We challenge the research community to come up with solutions that may sound like science fiction,” said Hepburn, whose role at DARPA, he added, is to “take pandemics off the table.”
He compared their diagnostic approach used by the microchip to a car’s “check engine” alert.
Although some folks have had fears about this when it was reported sometime last year that Microsoft’s Bill Gates is using vaccines as a vehicle to insert a microscopic global positioning system into our bodies, “60 Minutes” clarified that DARPA’s chip would not “track your every move.” Nor is it being administered via shots, as some would-be Twitter sleuths have pondered.
“It’s a sensor,” Hepburn told CBS correspondent Bill Whitaker. “That tiny green thing in there, 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.”
The microchip, embedded in a tissue-like gel, is designed to continuously test the chip recipient’s blood for the presence of the virus. Once COVID-19 is detected, the chip alerts the patient to conduct a rapid blood test, which can be self-administered, to confirm the positive result.
“We can have that information in three to five minutes,” Hepburn said. “As you truncate that time, as you diagnose and treat, what you do is you stop the infection in its tracks.”
The segment also revealed technology that would allow a standard dialysis machine to remove COVID-19 from the blood using a customized filter. Blood is passed through the machine, where it’s detoxed, then pumped back into the body in a continuous stream until the body is rid of the virus.
