On this past Sunday night’s broadcast of “60 Minutes.” the report revealed that 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.
This technology is not widespread to the public outside the Defense Department according to a retired army colonel named Matt Hepburn, who is an infectious disease physician, who has more details on the use of the microchip. He went on further to say that it could detect COVID-19 in an individual well before a patient zero spawns an outbreak.
“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.” The doctor compared the diagnostic microchip to a car’s “check engine” alert.
60 Minutes was also quick to refute conspiracy theories that claim that Microsoft’s Bill Gates is using vaccines as a way to insert a microscopic global positioning system into our bodies, the report 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.”
