The entire purpose of lockdowns was supposed to flatten the curve because so many people would get sick and die in the millions, there would not be enough bed space. They keep changing the excuse to keep the power going continually. Welcome to what Authoritarian/Totalitarianism looks like in the 21st century. A new bill has been introduced in the Australian federal parliament that gives civil and criminal immunity to foreign military forces and police operating in Australia during an emergency which is obviously this hyped COVID-19 and could even be bushfires. The Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force Response to Emergencies) Bill 2020 amends the Defence Act 1903 and the Defence Reserve Service (Protection) Act 2001 (DRSP Act) to allow members of the Australia Defence Force (ADF) Reserves, to be called in and to be given total immunity for performing duties that they may be called upon to do. The bill will also grant immunities to members of the ADF, as well as all other defense personnel, and members of even foreign forces called on during a civil emergency.
Meanwhile, in Canada, they are creating quasi-interment camps. An Ontario politician condemned the Canadian federal government’s Covid-19 quarantine sites as “internment camps” which has led to the presumption that they intend to jail Canadians. I have even heard the rumors that you can call them and say you think someone has COVID-19 and they will be sent off the jail. These statements are generally false at this moment. However, the sites do exist and are facilities rented by the federal government for “travelers” who have NO alternative for mandatory quarantine. The danger with this is very clear, it opens the door to forced quarantines as in New Zealand. In Thailand, you must quarantine for 2 weeks in a hotel designated by the government at your own expense.
The Director of the CDC said: “But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools.” Mr. Redfield continued: “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from a drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID. So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social being of individuals, is let’s all work together and find out how we can find common ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe.”
There has been a lot of turmoil about just how many people have died from COVID. The problem stems from the fact that they have other diseases and perhaps COVID has pushed them over the edge. Of those under 55, only 14,047 people have died WITH COVID at the start of September but with other complications according to the CDC Table #3. Twitter and everyone else is removing comments quoting the CDC that only: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.” They are trying to keep the fear factor going.
