The technology company Microsoft, founded by billionaire Bill Gates, has introduced a controversial unique system through which school-age children will be scanned with a barcode that will allow them to attend classes.
Children in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will have their own unique QR code or day pass to access the system after being scanned. Those who do not have this barcode will not be allowed to enter the school grounds.
In addition, children will be required to keep a social distance, wear face masks, and constantly monitor their temperature throughout the day. The controversial system also manages health screenings, CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus testing, or COVID-19, and vaccinations.
LAUSD’s immunization program also plans to use a daily pass to register and schedule appointments, monitor vaccines in stock, record and capture appointment data, classify high-risk individuals, provide waiting lists for low-risk individuals and dashboards to view data, among other features.
The system also allows access via mobile devices or computer. “Students, parents and visitors will access the Daily Pass on any computer, tablet, or mobile device,” reads the LAUSD website, which also has an information segment that pushes school staff to get vaccinated.
According to NBC News, the system called Daily Pass, “generates a unique QR code for each student and staff member, and that code authorizes entry to a specific LAUSD location for that day only—as long as the individual receives a negative test result for COVID, shows no symptoms, and has a temperature under 100 degrees, the district said.”
In addition to compelling students to employ the system to keep track of the CCP Virus, the app can make the collected data available to the various research collaborators as well as Los Angeles district authorities.
The information shared with Stanford University, UCLA, Johns Hopkins University, Anthem Blue Cross, Healthnet, and Cedars Sinai apparently serves as a strategy to create the “safest possible school environment.”
In a promotional video for the app through an animation, a minor is seen telling her mother, “Mom, I’m scared to going back to school. I don’t want to get sick and I don’t want you and dad to get sick,” then they introduce the CCP Virus day pass as a solution to the problem.
As the Daily Caller noted, LAUSD’s planned date for reopening school is currently set for April 9, after most schools have remained closed in Southern California since March 2020.
