US Pentagon scientists have developed a high-tech implant that can be place under the skin to detect Covid-19. The Project Agency (DARPA) has managed to create a ‘sensor‘ that can be placed on someone’s body to detect the deadly virus, along with a revolutionary ‘filter’ to remove Covid from the blood.

Retired Colonel Matt Hepburn, an Army infectious disease physician, explained how it all works in an interview with CBS’s 60 Seconds.
When he was recruited by DARPA for eight years, he was told to “take pandemics off the table.” Hepburn said: “That was the beauty of the DARPA model. We challenge the research community to find solutions that may seem like science fiction. And we are very willing to take risks with high-risk investments that may not work. But if they do, we can transform completely the landscape.”
”In showing CBS ‘some current projects’, Hepburn revealed a tissue-like gel, which has been designed to continuously analyze blood.“ “It’s a sensor,” he said.

That little green thing over there, you put it under the skin and it What it tells you is that there are chemical reactions within the body and that signal means that you are going to have symptoms tomorrow.
When asked if it was an ‘actual transmitter’, Hepburn added: “It’s like a ‘check engine’ light.”
“This means that sailors could get a signal if Covid-19 was detected in their blood, before giving themselves a blood draw to be tested on the site.” “We can have that information in three to five minutes,” Hepburn said.
“As you shorten that time, as you diagnose and treat, what you do is stop the infection in dry”.
