Cybersecurity Expert: China Creating ‘Digital Twin’ of Americans
Digital twins are virtual clones that can simulate any kind of object, device or structure, merging the digital and physical world with the internet of bodies, internet of things, data analytics and artificial intelligence.
Genomics is the study of the complete set of DNA including all genes in a person or other organism. The DNA of Americans was collected in Covid-19 tests, providing key information for potential biowarfare.
BGI Genomics, a firm with ties to the CCP military has been accused by U.S. intelligence officials, of mining the DNA and medical data of Americans. The Obama-Biden administration and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation played a critical role in BGI’s American expansion.

China Creates ‘Digital Twin’ of Americans: Cybersecurity Expert
As reports have emerged that Chinese military-linked firms gather American DNA, these firms are now capable of creating digital replicas of Americans, according to John Mills, former director of cybersecurity policy, strategy, and international affairs at the Department of Defense.
“They have the capacity to create these complex models of each of us. They’re making digital twins of us,” Mills told the “China in Focus” program on NTD News, sister media outlet of The Epoch Times.
He pointed to BGI Group, formerly Beijing Genomics Institute, which is the leader of the CCP’s genome project, as well as a leading producer of COVID-19 tests.
In 2017, the company’s leader boasted that it had reached an industrial level of success in progressing through genetic reform and gene editing, to gene synthesizing, and mass-producing multiple viruses, bacteria, and large yeasts.
“They can do all kinds of nefarious things with no constraint or loss. They have our data.” That data could be used to tailor a follow-up virus to target certain non-Han ethnicities, Mills warned.
Mills referred to Beijing’s military-civil fusion policy, calling Chinese companies “extensions of state security, state intelligence.”
That includes every Chinese company and every company that is incorporated in China, even if it is American in origin, he stressed. “They are the eyes and the ears and the collectors.”
That means when Americans give information to these companies, their data is essentially going to Chinese intelligence, Mills said.
