United States Patent 11107588

Dr. Zelenko has referred to a patent for an electronic device that tracks a person’s health status and transmits that information to another device. He says that this technology is being used with the current COVID injections, though I do not know what evidence he has to support this statement.

From my initial reading, the patent is for some sort of readable electronic device that communicates with other devices to transmit information about a vaccinated person’s health status and likelihood that he/she will spread a virus such as the coronavirus.  I do not see how this device would work as described unless it was injected into the body. I provide the link below for the interested reader. The technology exists…is it being used?

Abstract System and methods for anonymously selecting subjects for treatment against an infectious disease caused by a pathogen. The system comprises a plurality of electronic devices comprising instructions to generate an ID and, when in proximity of another such electronic device, one or both electronic devices transmit/receive the ID to/from the other electronic device. Then, a score is generated based on a plurality of such received IDs. Additionally, based on information received from a server, relevant treatment instructions are displayed to the subjects based on the received information and the score. The server comprises instructions for sending to the plurality of electronic devices the information to be displayed with the relevant treatment instructions, additionally the server and/or the electronic devices comprise instructions to generate a prediction of likelihood of a subject transmitting the pathogen, based on the score of the subject.
