Goodbye Civil Liberties & Hello Communism New Zealand Launches Frightening Quarantine Program After Spike In COVID-19…Dems Would Love To Do This In The USA
New Zealand has been touted by the left as a country that has handled the coronavirus correctly. But, what they are finding out is the virus is going to virus no matter what.
After 100 days of no new coronavirus cases, the virus has once again emerged in New Zealand and the country’s prime minister is going to put the country back in lockdown. Remember this is an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that has quarantined travelers.
Prime minister, Jacinda Ardern has said the growing Auckland cluster of now 17 cases “would get worse before it gets better.” The population of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city is 1.7 million people.
The country now has 36 cases.
“As we all learnt from our first experience with COVID, once you identify a cluster, it grows before it slows. We should expect that to be the case here,” Ardern told a media briefing in Wellington. “We can see the seriousness of the situation we are in. It’s being dealt with in an urgent but calm and methodical way.”
To stop nature (which is impossible) Prime Minister Ardern is taking quarantine to the next level. Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, the Director-General of Health said that all active cases will have to enter government-managed quarantine.
The Guardian reports:
Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, the director-general of health, said all active cases would now be required to enter government-managed quarantine, in a departure from a previous policy which had allowed infected people to self-isolate at home, or be admitted to hospital if they were severely ill.
Bloomfield said despite people’s best intentions many were visited by friends and family when they fell ill, and placing infected people in mandatory quarantine was the country’s best bet at containing the spread. He admitted some Covid-19 patients had resisted the new measure.
Since when did the lockdowns become about stopping cases? The government of New Zealand is going to manage and control, meaning you can’t stay in your home. Are you kidding!? This is exactly what the left wants to do in our country.
I’m not trying to be insensitive many of us know of at least one person lost to the virus. With that said Florida, Texas, and Arizona all saw a huge spike in cases and bodies weren’t being piled up in the street. The death toll from the virus in the northeast was more from poor treatment and bad policy from Democrat governors than it was the virus.
Other governors have catered their coronavirus policy to their state’s ability to handle a spike in cases. For example, unlike Flordia, Tate Reeves, Mississippi governor went is a different direction. He claimed the hospital system in his state could only handle a certain amount of cases and imposed stricter guidelines than Florida did.
What’s really starting to emerge is that once a lockdown is lifted the virus does its thing. Yes, that is scary, especially for those vulnerable but, we can’t fight nature either. The solid data we have from a lockdown is that they are great for killing economies.
