Last week, “60 Minutes” aired a report detailing a microchip developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which falls under the umbrella of the Department of Defense’s Pentagon, which can detect the COVID-19 virus under one’s skin.
That’s right: a subdermal diagnostic microchip that can tell if members of the military have contracted the coronavirus has been developed by the Pentagon.
The technology was developed with guidance from retired Army Colonel Matt Hepburn, an infectious disease physician who spoke with the CBS News program.
“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,” Hepburn said.
When the chip raises the alarm that a soldier has been infected with COVID-19 he can be properly quarantined to prevent the virus’s spread within his unit.
“We can have that information in three to five minutes,” Hepburn said of the technology. “It’s like a ‘check engine’ light. As you truncate that time — as you diagnose and treat — what you do is you stop the infection in its tracks.”
Hepburn, CBS News notes, spent years with the “secretive defense advanced research projects agency” DARPA, where he worked on the development he now hopes “will ensure COVID-19 is the last pandemic.”
He said when he was recruited, the DARPA director was “clear” to him that, “Your mission is to take pandemics off the table.”
