Australian Military Begins Transferring Covid Positive and Close Contacts to Quarantine Camps

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.”

Watch:

“We’re conscious of the fact that this can have some impacts on people’s mental health as well as their general well being,” Police Commissioner Jamie Chalkner told NT News.

Of note, the Northern Territories are home to a large percentage of indigenous Australians. As the Epoch Times’ Steve Milne notes:

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, in 2018-19, almost one in five Indigenous Australians lived in overcrowded dwellings (18 percent), compared to 5 percent of non-Indigenous Australians. Although this percentage had decreased from 27 percent in 2004, it still meant an estimated 145,340 Indigenous Australians were living in overcrowded dwellings in 2018-19.

In addition, the more remote an area, the higher the proportion of Indigenous Australians living in overcrowded dwellings (26 percent in remote areas and 51 percent in “very remote” areas), compared to 8 and 22 percent in non-remote areas.

Five days ago, NT Senator Malarndirri McCarthy told ABC that over crowding in Indigenous communities was a “massive problem,” pointing to the region’s second cluster of new infections – which included nine members of McCarthy’s direct family, including her sister who flew from Katherine to Robinson River while unknowingly bringing COVID-19 with her, per the report.

“If we could get housing in there right now, I would be pushing that straight away to the federal government and the NT government to work on that, but we obviously need the resources to do so,” she said.

Of the nine new cases in Binjari, four are women and five are men, including a 78-year-old woman who has been transported to Darwin Hospital.

There were zero new COVID-19 cases reported on Sunday, however Minister Gunner said he was worried about ‘mingling between households’ in Binjari and Rockhole, whose populations are around 220 and 130 respectively.

On Sunday, Gunner said: “Yes, these are strong measures, but the threat to lives is extreme.”

Nice people…

    “cases” testing positive means absolutely nothing at all bc the CDC has admitted that the COVID tests were rigged to predict false positives!
    Also be warned that Soros bought the company that makes COVID tests, so who knows what will be at the end of that Q-tip that they want to shove up your brain!!

    Australia is now full-on Communist! The One World Order has to bring all of Western civilization under their control and what a better excuse to do it than through a virus and a fake vaccine!

    If you are wondering why the DEMS want to take away our guns, wonder no longer, here is why! History has predicted with 100% accuracy that any time a government wants to disarm their citizens, is because they have a sinister plan and usually it involves genocide.

  • Nazism at its best. It’s the vaccinated who are getting sick again. Natural immunity provides better protection, as those of us with facts know. I will never be vaccinated, and I am 69 with co-morbidities. I have kept my immune system strong. Just like previous flu seasons, I RARELY, IF EVER get sick. And I don’t take flu shots, or pneumonia vaccines, or shingles vaccines. I do the smart thing and stay away from sick people and don’t go outside in weather that wil make you sick. Common sense, that’s all…..common sense. Apparently, these people have none of that, just following the WHO which is corrupt as well. May God open the eyes and hearts of the blind!

    THIS is what happens when citizens are disarmed! History has proven that at any time a government seeks to disarm its citizens it is bc they have something sinister up their sleeves!

    And now we know why the DEMS have been creating one false flag after the next so that they can have an excuse to disarm us! If they ever succeed, it will be the beginning of the end for Americans!
