Scientists at the Pentagon have developed a microchip that, when inserted under the skin, can discover if the person develops COVID-19, according to a record by The Independent.
The Pentagon, the headquarters of the United States Department of Defence, has likewise developed a filter that can eliminate the novel coronavirus from a patient’s blood through a dialysis equipment.
According to the record, researchers at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have claimed that they worked years on means to prevent infections and end pandemics. Their work was disclosed on the ’60 Minutes’ show on United States television channel CBS on April 11, 2021.
The idea mooted after 1,271 sailors were infected onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier in 2020.
The microchip, which reportedly does not track activities, is brought in a tissue-like gel and also is made to examine the person’s blood. “You place it beneath your skin and what that informs you is that there are chemical reactions going on inside the body, which suggests you are going to have signs and symptoms tomorrow,” described Retired Colonel Matt Hepburn, an army contagious illness doctor leading DARPA’s pandemic response.
Hepburn also supposedly stated on the show that his group had created a filter, which is put on a dialysis device, that would certainly get rid of the infection from the blood. The treatment has currently been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency situation usage and also has actually been reportedly used to treat virtually 300 clients.
