Aids Patients In Indonesia To Be Monitored With Microchip Implants

The Papua province in Indonesia will be passing a bylaw that will allow them to implant HIV/AIDS patients with microchips. They are hoping that this method will help to keep them from infecting those who are healthy.

The new bylaw stated that patients who have expressed “actively sexual behavior” are more likely to be implanted with the microchip in order to monitor their activity. Naturally this new method has caused a large uproar among the many human rights activists

“It’s a simple technology. A signal from the microchip will track their movements and this will be received by monitoring authorities,” lawmaker John Manangsang said. Any HIV/AIDS patient that is discovered to infect someone who is healthy will be punished though they did not express what that punishment would be.

Local parliament has plans to introduce the new legislation in Papua by the end of the month. They hope to lower the cases of HIV/AIDS cases per year which right now is 100,000 people. This is 20 times the national average in Indonesia.
