Two Weeks in an Australian COVID prison

Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

Australian Woman Describes Two Weeks in Quarantine Camp

A 26 year old woman from Australia, Hayley Hodgson, was forced into a quarantine camp when one of her friends tested positive for COVID.

Hayley was threatened by police with a $5,000 fine if she didn’t “voluntarily” go to the camp for two weeks of isolation.

She spent 14 days in the camp, despite testing negative for COVID three times; she has still never caught COVID.

During her time in the camp, she was threatened with another $5,000 fine for leaving her small outdoor deck to take her trash out without a mask on.

Keep in mind that Hayley is an innocent person. She has committed no crime.

She was not informed of her rights, she was not given legal representation, and she was threatened with being held longer in the camp if she didn’t follow the rules while incarcerated.

Hayley says:

“You feel like you’re in prison. You feel like you’ve done something wrong, it’s inhumane what they’re doing. You are so small, they just overpower you. And you’re literally nothing.”

While in COVID jail, Hayley lost her job. But don’t worry, the government gave her $1,500 to compensate her.

In totally unrelated news, Australia’s economy shrank 1.9% in the second contraction since COVID began.

Australian Army Begins Transferring COVID-Positive Cases, Contacts To Quarantine Camps, by Tyler Durden

Remember when Covid camps were considered a lunatic fringe conspiracy theory, completely beyond the pale? Well, they’re now well within the pale, because it’s happening. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The Australian army has begun forcibly removing residents in the Northern Territories to the Howard Springs quarantine camp located in Darwin, after nine new Covid-19 cases were identified in the community of Binjari. The move comes after hard lockdowns were instituted in the communities of both Binjari and nearby Rockhole on Saturday night.

Residents of Binjari and Rockhole no longer have the five reasons to leave their homes,” said Northern Territory chief minister, Michael Gunner, referring to the country’s five allowable reasons to avoid lockdown (buying food and supplies, exercising for up to two hours, care or caregiving, work or education if it can’t be done from home, and to get vaccinated at the nearest possible location).

They can only leave for medical treatment, in an emergency, or as required by law.”

It’s highly likely that more residents will be transferred to Howard Springs today, either as positive cases or close contacts,” he continued, adding “We have already identified 38 close contacts from Binjari but that number will go up. Those 38 are being transferred now.

I contacted the Prime Minister last night. We are grateful for the support of about 20 ADF personnel, as well as army trucks to assist with the transfer of positive cases and close contacts – and to support the communities.

We are doing an assessment today of what extra resources we might need from the Feds, and the Prime Minister is ready to help further – I thank him for that.”
