Australia; Taking it to the Limit One More Time By James Reed
Here is the next level of social control, being under lock down, guarded by the military:
“Every Australian arriving home from overseas will face a mandatory two-week stay in city hotels to make sure quarantine is enforced. The extraordinary measure announced by Prime Minister on Friday will come into force for overseas arrivals from 1.59pm on Saturday night. The clampdown is aimed of slowing the insidious spread of coronavirus as new data shows two-thirds of the 3,050 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Australia are from overseas arrivals. Mr Morrison said state and territory police would be supported by the Australian Defence Force to ensure the new arrivals stayed in the hotels. Flanked by Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy, Mr Morrison said: 'By no later than midnight tomorrow - that is 11:59pm Saturday - states and territories will be quarantining all arrivals through our airports in hotels and other accommodation facilities for the two weeks of their mandatory self-isolation before they are able to return to their home.' Return travellers will be quarantined in hotels in the city where they fly into Australia, he said. 'If their home is in South Australia or in Perth or in Tasmania and they have arrived in Melbourne, they will be quarantining in Melbourne.'
Wil there be tanks outside the hotel to deal with anyone sneaking out for a burger? Will black attack helicopters circle overhead, with mini guns at the ready? And, why aren’t police only involved rather than the military in addition to control civilian populations? So many questions, so few answers.
