Quarantine camps for the unvaccinated. What for months was dismissed as a futile conspiracy theory is now becoming horribly true in Australia’s Northern Territory under the region’s dictator Michael Gunner.
Gunner, the chief minister of the Northern Territory, proudly boasted that 38 “close contacts” of positive Covid cases were transferred to quarantine camps in army trucks.
Last night, we took urgent action to step up our response in these communities, immediately implementing a strict lockdown. This means that residents of Binjari and Rockhole no longer have the five reasons to leave their homes. They can only leave for medical treatment, in an emergency or if required by law. Yes, these are strong measures but the threat to life is extreme.
An expanded rapid assessment team was deployed to Binjari and Rockhole last night to assist with the difficult lockdown and begin contact tracing work […] It is highly likely that more residents will be moved to Howard Springs [quarantine camp] today, either as positive cases or as close contacts.
We have already identified 38 close contacts in Binjari and this number will increase. They are transferred now. We are grateful for the support of around 20 ADF [Australian Defence Force] personnel, as well as army trucks to assist with the transfer of positive cases and close contacts.
Australia’s Northern Territory already had some of the toughest foreclosure laws in the English-speaking world. The five reasons allowed to leave your home are: to buy food; exercise for up to two hours; care; job; education.
This latest move by Gunner of the Australian left-wing Labor Party represents a rapid escalation of totalitarianism in biosecurity. Those targeted are Indigenous Australians (otherwise known as Aborigines), an ethnic group that has been particularly reluctant to take the Covid vaccine.
According to an ABC report, many aborigines believe the vaccine is the work of the devil.
Veteran Indigenous health worker Kathy Watson said people spreading false information about the COVID-19 vaccination and its connection to the devil were “crazy.”
“They say if you get the needle it means you have Satan in you,” she said.
The rules in the quarantine camps are extremely strict.
A person in quarantine must;
- stay in the person’s assigned room, including on any veranda space assigned to the room, unless authorized by an authorized officer; and
- when not in their room, or on their veranda, residents should take all reasonable steps to stay at least 1.5 meters from any other person in the quarantine facility, except the spouse, the person’s common-law partner, child or parent; and
- wear a face mask outside of their room, unless an authorized officer authorizes the person to remove the face mask; and
- comply with all instructions given by an authorized officer to prevent people from congregating in a quarantine area; and
- must not leave the quarantine area in which the person’s assigned room is located unless the person is being escorted by an authorized officer, except in an emergency.
You are unable to share or hand over physical items to residents who are not family members. COVID-19 lives on surfaces, so you should not give away objects, toys, food, activities or play games like cards with people outside your family.
Quarantine facility staff will remind you to wear your mask, stay on your veranda, and physically move away based on the information in your resident booklet, reminder text messages and verbally in person if we find that you do not follow the instructions.
To add insult to injury, prisoners in quarantine camps would have to pay a high price for their ordeal.
The quarantine fee for an individual is $ 2,500 for the full 14 day period.
A family rate of $ 5,000 applies for family groups of two or more in shared accommodation.
People in mandatory supervised quarantine will also be tested before leaving quarantine. If you decline a test, 10 days will be added to your quarantine time.
If you need to undertake an additional 10 days of quarantine, there will be an additional charge of $ 1,750 for an individual or $ 3,500 for a family.
But low-income residents get a reduction …
- $ 1,250 per person or
- $ 2,500 per family of two or more sharing accommodation.
Chief Minister Michael Gunner was a hitherto unknown figure outside of Australia’s Northern Territory (246,500), where the total number of Covid deaths to date is zero, and where you may be more likely to die by being eaten by one of the estimated 100,000 saltwater crocodiles infesting its rivers and waterholes (37 deaths in the past decade).
But his latest media statements elevated him to the status of a global dictator. In a viral video, a gunner with bright eyes and a clenched jaw, appearing to be on the verge of bursting his sphincter in fury, has declared war on vaccines. By its definition, this even includes people who have been vaccinated but oppose its drastic measures.
“If you are anti-mandate you are absolutely anti-vax,” he said.
