Throughout much of this COVID-19 pandemic, a strong, conspiratorial undercurrent has been present, in which those among us who’ve long been distrustful of the government believe that the powers that be are going to exploit this crisis for their own nefarious purposes.
And there isn’t just one such theory out there, either. In fact, the COVID-19 conspiracy community is a large and diverse crowd, with a vast number of differing opinions as it pertains to what “really” going on behind the scenes of this virus.
One of the more prevalent theories involved a secret microchip that would be implanted into your body via the near-mandatory vaccinations that have been occurring around the world.
And while this may sound outlandish to some, news out of the Pentagon this week sounds eerily familiar.
Pentagon scientists working inside a secretive unit set up at the height of the Cold War have created a microchip to be inserted under the skin, which will detect COVID-19 infection, and a revolutionary filter that can remove the virus from the blood when attached to a dialysis machine.
The team at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have been working for years on preventing and ending pandemics.
One of their recent inventions, they told 60 Minutes on Sunday night, was a microchip which detects COVID infection in an individual before it can become an outbreak.
No further information had yet been given regarding the chip, which will undoubtedly leave plenty of room for further, more complex theories to arise in regard to this novel idea.
