Apple and Google could have ended the whole pandemic within weeks using the data on people's phones, months before vaccine availability. If the Cloud can control how you think, it certainly knows whether you have been exposed.
Due to privacy concerns, instead of processing the massive amount of data they collect daily, Apple and Google developed a standard to collect MINIMUM data (e.g. only a bluetooth identifier) for GOVERNMENTS to process centrally in a few data centres. Like other Covid apps, it fails to make meaningful impact on the pandemic as case numbers soar.
Vaccines are not perfect, Virtual Vaccine protects the population when Real Vaccines fail to do so (e.g. sustained high death rates from new variants worldwide).
Virtual Vaccine takes the opposite approach to privacy protection by collecting MAXIMUM data for CITIZENS to process themselves on millions of mobile phones. It revolutionise infectious disease control by aggregating citizen compute power and stored data to deliver breakthrough capabilities:
Locate virus precisely down to METRES.
Reduce inconvenienced population from thousands to dozens with Data Fusion
No more collateral damage - less testing - less isolation.

Virtual Vaccine can be deployed with ONE CLICK on mobile phones worldwide, any virus can be isolated quickly before the availability of vaccine - pandemic will be a thing of the past.
2. Vaccine Problems Fixed
Virtual Vaccine and Real Vaccine operate at the OPPOSITE ENDS of the visibility spectrums.
Real Vaccine does not know where the virus is, so needs to jab everyone.
Virtual Vaccine knows exactly where the virus is, so needs to notify just a few.
Virtual Vaccine gives citizens and their governments a NEW OPTION, an alternative to vaccines that will protect us from COVID and other infectious diseases.
Virtual Vaccine solves the Personal Privacy vs Virus Visibility conundrum by giving citizens the capability and incentive to collect and process data privately on their own devices instead of sending their data away to remote Cloud Computing facilities for processing.
2.1. Stop Ongoing Carnage
No matter how "high" is the vaccination rate, large numbers of people are still dying of COVID in 2023 and many are getting Long COVIDs.
- 4.5% of ALL deaths in United Kingdom are STILL caused by COVID week ending 2023-03-17.
- Australian homicides (0.7 deaths a day) and road deaths (3.1 deaths a day) are often on the news, yet who is reporting that there are STILL an average of 25 deaths a day (on 2023-05-26) despite rolling out of a nationwide 4-shot vaccination program.
For some the COVID damage is long lasting e.g. 2 million LONG COVID cases in in United Kingdom so far 22-06-02. Also each new reinfection has an accumulative damage effect to the body.
Beside preventing hospitalisations and deaths, Virtual Vaccine can also stop nationwide productivity lost and reduced economic activity that come with mass infection of the population as each new variant driven wave arrives.
WHY OFFER UNNECESSARY SACRIFICES TO COVID?
Protecting BOTH the vulnerable AND the economy is now possible at NO cost to the taxpayers.

3. Privacy Conundrum Solved
Perfect visibility into virus locations and instant alerts to relevant parties, will stop ANY outbreak.
Virtual Vaccine does just that - by solving the Virus Visibility vs Personal Privacy conundrum with our WORLD FIRST deployment of homomorphic encryption at scale.
Traditionally it is not possible to have both absolute privacy and perfect visibility since personal data will be exposed to external parties, giving them detailed knowledge of everyone's movements (in order to discover close contacts) and their identities (in order to notify them).
Unlike private companies which are profiting from people's data with impunity, governments need to protect the privacy of their citizens (and themselves), so massive centralised real-time location logging cannot be used in the fight with COVID-19.
This lack of instant, accurate and complete visibility into virus movements means
- Population wide testing and lock down - resulting in massive collateral damages
- High contact tracing workload - system easily overwhelmed as cases increases
- Excessive sharing of citizen data - credit card purchases, mobile towers used etc.
If the citizens can provide complete visibility into their movements by tracking THEMSELVES (instead of being tracked by someone else), then most of the privacy concerns will disappear!
3.1. Citizen Application
With Virtual Vaccine, citizens process their own DATA on their mobile phones privately, providing others with the resulting INSIGHTS instead of exposing raw data.
With just ONE CLICK citizens receive compute power to process their private data on their mobile phones themselves, eliminating the need to send their data away to remote compute power for processing.
By giving out only INSIGHTS and keeping their raw DATA to themselves, citizens have full control and absolute privacy. Citizens build up permanently information assets of their own (instead of sending data away to build up the Cloud's assets).
Even incidents like the BBQ Man Leak, where the identity was not disclosed directly but inferred, can be prevented. Instead of raw data (e.g. business names like Barbeques Galore) only homomorphically encrypted identities, locations and times are processed on fuzzy blockchains.
This positive feedback loop of more data, more insight, more reward means unlike other COVID programs, not only can Virtual Vaccine operate WITHOUT draining taxpayer funds, it can actually boost a nation's economy by transforming every citizen from a passive USER of cloud platform assets into an active OWNER of information assets.
Beside providing Citizen Insight (which Virtual Vaccine is an example), Citizen Applications can also be used to provide Citizen Identity and Citizen Resource.
3.2. Crowd Infrastructure
No matter how good are the surveillance technologies or how powerful are the computers, exponentially increasing Covid cases is going to overwhelm ANY government contact tracing systems, resulting in the need to put on damaging restrictions and lockdowns.
Virus mutation does not stop when government contact tracing systems are swamped and shut down, Virtual Vaccine is there to fill the void with a substantially more effective system.
Virtual Vaccine is the only pandemic solution that can take advantage of the enormous computing power and detailed private data on the mobile phones of the whole population. As an outbreak affects more people, more mobile phones are brought in fight it.
By hunting the virus down precisely and isolating it rapidly at zero costs. Short vaccine protection duration and new variants are no longer of concern even as restrictions ease.
3.3. Personal Console
Virtual Vaccine allows EVERYONE, independent of their wealth or skill, to participate - with just one click.
Virtual Vaccine is available for trial now. Just go to 88.io and you will be redirect to the closest server to you (e.g. app.contacttrace.com.au)
where Virtual Vaccine will then be installed into your web browser.
- NO download from App Stores or Play Store
- NO sign-up to any service or create any account
- NO advertisement or any unsolicited interruption
- NO leaking of data outside of your phone
- NO username, email, phone number etc. needed
- NO charge for use, distribution, modification (refer to license)
- NO hidden operation (source code is published publicly)
Once installed it will ask permission to access your location, like any other data collected by Virtual Vaccine, the location data collected is used to display your location on your phone to you only.
Virtual Vaccine is operated through a user friendly map interface on your browser. You simply place location pins on the map (manually or automatically) as you move around. Information are then attached to each of those pins.
When there is an existing outbreak, it only takes one to two weeks of using Virtual Vaccine in MANUAL MODE (where everyone scans every QR code they can find e.g. on back of bus seats to inside elevators) to flush all existing viruses out to a high degree of accuracy and then they can relax and go back to using Virtual Vaccine in AUTOMATIC MODE with just wireless signals (e.g. bluetooth to wifi) providing adequate accuracy to control any future outbreaks.
Fighting COVID surgically WITHOUT blunt instruments like lock downs and border closures by exposing the virus precisely and cutting its legs off rapidly is now easy!
3.4. Data Fusion
Instead of gathering information a few minutes a day through a SINGLE app's QR codes and Bluetooth signals in one country, Virtual Vaccine has built in QR scanner and Bluetooth detector to capture information 24 hours a day from ANY COVID app's QR codes and ANY Bluetooth signal across ALL countries.
Virtual Vaccine also collects non-COVID specific codes and signals into the citizen's mobile phone, so the data can all be fused together to create a high resolution picture of the citizen's movement.
From scanning Alipay and Wechat QR codes in retail shops to logging bluetooth signal strengths from nearby earbuds to calling in by phone to tell us your location (+61499331111), every bit of data is used to reduce the collateral damage (unnecessary testing, isolation etc.) to people who are NOWHERE near potentially infectious cases.
Citizens contribute enough processing power to fuse all sorts of data e.g. example manual "Touch Pin" clicking to specify accurate location indoors and Personal QR code scanning to specify meeting indoors. Even NEGATIVE test results (if you have been living with people for the pass 7 days and they all just have negative test results then your chance of being infected is lowered even if you have not been tested yet) can be useful.
Virtual Vaccine collects everything, from barcodes of your rapid antigen tests to the wifi signals of your neighbour, so maximum amount of data can be brought to bear on COVID.
Data Fusion provides unprecedented situation awareness, reducing lockdown population from THOUSANDS to DOZENS by locating the virus precisely down to metres. Ubiquitous data collection and analysis enable resources to be allocated properly e.g. preventing long quarantine, testing and vaccination queues.
3.5. Continuous Tracing
Instead of waiting for the test result, Virtual Vaccine starts contact tracing using citizen computing resources when a person first has concerns, tracing is well underway BEFORE the person has even arrived at a centre to get tested.
Some people might not want to be identified to others that they have been tested positive, they have not been vaccinated etc. yet they do want to warn others.
High risk people (aged care workers, family members etc.) can choose to receive Early Notifications, warning them to take care BEFORE the test result is out.
Virtual Vaccine can perform the bulk of the contact tracing workload automatically and anonymously, freeing up human contact tracer to supervise its operation and handle difficult cases.
Virtual Vaccine is the world's first to reduce the recommended contact tracing time in Dr Alan Finkel's National Contact Tracing Review from 2 DAYS down to 2 MINUTES.
3.6. Forward Quarantine
Besides earlier notification than any other contact tracing systems, Virtual Vaccine also provide wider coverage than any other contact tracing system.
Your data now follows you instead of the government, so sharing of data no longer needs to be confined to one country - allowing seamless crossing of borders.
Forward Quarantine enables buildings, campuses, districts, states, countries to set up their own customised quarantine programs easily, without the overheads of special accommodation and staff.
Whether it is a remote town or a nursing home, Forward Quarantine enables virus free areas to be created rapidly. When the situation warrants, some of these virus free areas can be expanded or joined together.
All contact tracing systems are fragmented across different governments making it difficult to get a complete risk profile of visitors or notify close contacts once a positive case has crossed the border.
Personal Quarantine stores all data with the visitor instead of governments, generating up-to-date and trusted insights for different authorities as required - entering nursing homes, boarding planes, crossing borders etc.
Virtual Vaccine automatically detect the change in jurisdiction down to local government level in real-time (as displayed below), giving you information on local laws and update you on local risks.
3.7. Retrospective Reward
Unlike other COVID interventions, Virtual Vaccine helps build a nation's economy, instead of obliterate it (e.g. city lockdowns) or drain it (e.g. constant vaccinations).
In traditional contact trace systems, the collected data need to be deleted by law after a certain time, but with Virtual Vaccine the SAME raw data used to provide insights to Virtual Vaccine can be used to provide other insights to other applications in the future.
In addition to stopping pandemics, the same citizen infrastructure with the unique abilities of solving the privacy, cost and easiness problems ALL AT THE SAME TIME can be used in an unlimited number of projects large and small.
Virtual Vaccine that overcomes ALL hurdles limiting citizen contributions in data centric community projects.
Using the same mobile, wifi and bluetooth signals collected to locate COVID, citizens can starting building a sovereign terrestrial indoor capable geo-positioning system for their own country - no satellites nor rockets needed!
Beside grandiose national projects, a world where personal privacy and community visibility can not just coexist, but work together in a synergistic way, is transformative at every level.
With Virtual Vaccine citizens are offering insights to each other in a privacy preserving way to fight COVID. The same technology can be used to offer insights in many other areas.
Use the same QR code check-in for COVID to give invaluable statistics to your local cafe - it will not know who you are but it will know when the first customer arrived, when the last one left, when it was the busiest etc. In fact if it has bluetooth or wifi installed, you might NOT even need to scan, just share those events with the cafe and walk in and out without stopping!
The built-in barcode scanner is not just good at registering the rapid antigen test kit you used, it can also scan the barcode on the bottle of the milk you drank - in both cases you have a chance of selling data to the manufacturers.
From getting out of the way of emergency vehicles in real-time, to finding a person missing from a week ago, from passing on a whole lifetime's digit assets to strangers, to knowing whether that handsome man online is telling the truth ... the possibilities are endless.
4. Preventing other diseases
Besides COVID-19, other infectious diseases also kill hundreds of thousands of people each year (e.g. influenza).
Instead of collaborating with specialist researchers in forecasting influenza, with Virtual Vaccine health departments can now collaborate with the general population in preventing influenza.
Virtual Vaccine applies the revolutionary Private Cyberspace technology to solve one of the toughness problems facing humankind.
As a non-pharmaceutical solution Virtual Vaccine fixes many of real vaccine's problems, its built-in reward system enables anyone from any country to contribute and benefit from their data and effort.
Virtual Vaccine is already multilingual capable and is available inside all Private Cyberspaces, which you can install on your mobile phone with just ONE CLICK. Try out the ONE SECOND quick start after installation!
In light of real vaccine's poor performance in preventing infections, especially against continuously evolving variants (e.g. BA.5 and B1.2.75), a Living with COVID strategy is not only deadly for some, damaging for most, it is also very expensive for ALL.
Now that it has been PROVEN that COVID is evolving faster than real vaccine's ability to stop mass infections, continuously draining taxpayer funds for "never ending" number of low effectiveness jabs does not make economical nor moral sense.
Virtual Vaccine enables governments and citizens to work seamlessly TOGETHER fighting COVID surgically, WITHOUT blunt instruments like lockdowns. It brings unprecedented human and computer resources of the whole population into the fight, isolating COVID with privacy protection with accuracy and speed never possible before.
