How to Fight an Invisible Enemy

The COVID-19 death toll is now approaching a bleak 190,000 in America. 

Fully six months after the virus first arrived on our shores, we're still wearing masks. We're still social distancing. And many of us are still working from home. 

There's a global effort underway to develop a vaccine but it's not likely to be released any time soon. And time is running short with summer drawing to a close.

Who knows what the fall and winter will bring?

So, clearly, our efforts to combat the virus aren't sufficient.

We need to do more. We need to do better.

But how?

How does one fight an invisible enemy?

Simple: With invisible technology.

More specifically, "Invisible Detection."

You see, when the Coronavirus first reared its ugly head, I started looking for the new technologies that could address it.

Not just for my own personal enrichment — but because I wanted to support the war effort. 

If there was a company out there with technology that could help subdue this pandemic and save lives, well, that's a company I wanted to invest in. 

And as it turns out, I was already invested in one...

You see, a few years ago, I caught on to a company that specializes in "Invisible Detection" — covertly assessing potential threats. 

It's an incredible technology. 

To put it simply, it's camera software that uses advanced AI and facial recognition technology to identify weapons and even known terrorists. 

If a person is carrying a gun, knife, or even a bomb, this technology can recognize that and alert the authorities. 

If a person is wanted by the authorities — on a terrorist watch list, or a known criminal with a mugshot — this technology can identify them, and again, alert the authorities.

But now, with the outbreak of COVID-19, it's going even further...

Because the brains behind this technology have added a new layer — thermal imaging and temperature screening.

Yes, this same technology that's already being deployed to stadiums, airports, concert halls, and other major venues, is now being used to screen for COVID symptoms

That means it can catch potential carriers, alert them to their illness, and ensure that they are removed from crowds. 

Better still, it can help identify where that person has been and who they've interacted with, and notify anyone who's come in contact with that person.

And it gets better...

The technology can count the number of individuals entering and exiting a store, ensuring businesses comply with new laws governing capacity. 

And it can even measure the distance between individuals to monitor social distancing protocols. 

This is the kind of cutting-edge technology that will help us defeat the invisible enemy once and for all. 

No wonder it's rapidly being adopted across the country. 

Businesses like Amazon and Walmart are using it to scan their employees upon arrival. The facial recognition aspect ensures that every person coming and going is cleared to be there. And the infrared and surface temperature components flag anyone with a fever.

Thus, it delivers multiple layers of security in one seamless, swift, contactless action. 

And speaking of contactless, that's exactly where everything is heading.

Make no mistake, we're entering a new world — one in which security checkpoints are staffed not by people but by robots. Or, more specifically, kiosks. 

As I've previously reported, this technology is already being used to scan travelers' faces and compare them with their passport photos.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it’s processed more than 19 million travelers using facial recognition technology in just the past few years and caught 135 "imposters" whose identities did not match their IDs in the process.

And the Department of Homeland Security says it plans to use facial recognition at America's top 20 airports by 2021 — and at the remainder of airports by 2023.

It's not just government agencies that are backing this, either. It's also supported by private airline companies who see this technology as a way of streamlining air travel, reducing lines and wait times for boarding and baggage checks.

The fact that in the time of COVID it can also reduce interpersonal contact between employees, security agents, and travelers, scan for symptoms, and assist in contact tracing are just added benefits. 

Effectively, it adds multiple layers of security while increasing overall efficiency, making it vital to American society moving forward.

And yet, the stock is dirt cheap right now, trading for less than $0.20 per share. 

Of course, that's just because the market hasn't caught on yet. After all, this technology has only been around for a few years, and the added layers of disease control are still in the implementation phase. 

But once it takes off in full, the stock will skyrocket.

Fight on,
