Surveillance and monitoring are key tools of Technocracy in order to enforce its "science of social engineering." There is no level of surveillance or amount of data collected that is "enough". To a Technocrat, data represents control over the subjects being surveilled.
Also expect more calls for other surveillance systems to measure temperature, coughing and other symptoms of disease across the entire population. ? TN Editor
Scientific experts said Thursday that a wildlife surveillance system must be developed before the next pandemic emerges.
Evidence shows the virus that causes COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, came from bats that likely passed the virus onto another species before infecting humans, according to the World Health Organization.
Infectious disease experts, ecologists, wildlife biologists and other experts argue, in a paper published in the journal Science, that a decentralized global system of wildlife surveillance must be established before the next pandemic.
"It's impossible to know how often animal viruses spill over into the human population, but coronaviruses alone have caused outbreaks in people three times in the last 20 years," co-author Jennifer Philips said in a press release.
Phillips, who is an associate professor of medicine and co-director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, was referring to outbreaks from the SARS, MERS and COVID-19 epidemics.
