Readers may recall that I’ve been talking about fighting COVID via dog-style RFID chips in the necks of American humans (see RFID chips in the necks of college students for example and #Science proves that I was right (about the need for RFID chips in humans for COVID-19 surveillance) )
A friend who is expecting to adopt a puppy told me about a recent advance in the RFID chip world: Merck’s Home Again TempScan ($12 or $40 installed; the reader is $67) and competitors.
This would be perfect for a cower-in-place population that has happily surrendered its freedoms for what it hopes will be a slightly lower and/or slower COVID-19 death rate! Inexpensive sensors all over our built infrastructure can not only monitor who is getting near whom, but also whether anyone has a fever!
