Spooky Israeli digital healthcare businessman who previously worked in national security think tank

Jonathan Adiri is an Israeli businessman working in the digital healthcare sector, an area pinpointed as a priority by the World Economic Forum.

By making people do home tests via their smartphones and then analyzed by artificial intelligence, traditional diagnosis by a human doctor will become obsolete. This will change health care from the ideal of a total understanding of a person's health, to a technical understanding, where every condition will have a specific Big Pharma cure.

Adiri is an advisor to former Israeli president Shimon Peres. During his tenure, he devised a policy of technological diplomacy, forging a set of global collaborations in the water, space, agriculture, and biomedical fields.

COVID vaccine database

In January 2021, Adiri commented on the Israeli COVID vaccine program:

All told, the country's high and rapid inoculation rates and its vast database of medical history is an unbeatable research combination. Israel is the only country in the world where every vaccine recipient has a complete medical file going back years..Maybe in three years the data will tell us things that we otherwise would have had a hard time identifying and explaining; for example, if there was a rise in Alzheimer’s cases among the vaccinated or whether it affects fertility. In Israel, we can know pretty quickly whether the fear is justified.”

Another asset has to do with medicines developed with mRNA, the technology used by both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna to create their vaccines, Adiri said.

For instance, a company developing a cancer treatment based on mRNA will want people to participate in trials based on their reaction to the vaccine. Screening will be much faster and more reliable if the company has the data on vaccine recipients, rather than just asking people to remember their vaccine experience.

The third asset is hard to quantify but is no less important, Adiri added.

“When there’s a lot of data, it’s reasonable to assume we’ll gain a lot of new and unexpected insights from all kinds of perspectives that right now are hard to imagine, like the impact on DNA,” he said. “These are insights for discovering new and surprising correlations between variables.[1]
