Germans, Australians Dragged to Govt ‘Quarantine Centers’ for COVID-19

ER Editor: We’re doing a twofer, with a second report via Zerohedge of Haley Hodgson‘s filmed encounter at the Howard Springs quarantine facility near Darwin. We had published an interview with Haley Hodgson a few days ago. See:

Germans, Australians dragged to government ‘quarantine centers’ for COVID-19


Quarantine centers in Germany have included prisons, and Australian authorities have resorted to isolated camps under 24-hour surveillance.

More than a dozen people have been forcibly placed in government isolation facilities in Germany while hundreds of people have been held in similar Australian centers as Western countries continue to ramp up the use of forced quarantine centers in the name of stopping COVID-19.

A recent survey by German newspaper Welt am Sonntag found that at least 15 people have been taken to quarantine facilities in Germany’s 10 largest cities since the beginning of the year.

The 15 individuals, who allegedly violated at-home isolation requirements for COVID-19, include 11 in Munich, two in Stuttgart, and one each in Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, Welt am Sonntag reported. The full number of cases is likely higher, as authorities Berlin and Leipzig did not provide figures to the paper.

Some of the quarantine facilities were located within prisons, according to Welt. “Most of the federal states have closed areas in hospitals or prisons for quarantine breakers,” the outlet noted. “In Eisenhüttenstadt, Brandenburg, refusals were last housed in a former deportation detention center, in North Rhine-Westphalia, for example, in a Solingen clinic.”

Germany has long allowed forcible quarantine of people suspected of having infectious diseases and who refuse to submit to other isolation measures. The German Infection Protection Act of 2000 specifically authorizes “placement in a locked hospital” or “locked facility” to that effect. “The fundamental right to freedom of the person can be restricted in this respect,” the law states.

With hundreds of thousands of Germans subject to domestic quarantine orders at any given time, city authorities typically “check” residents “if there is a specific suspicion,” according to Welt. In Stuttgart, officials rely on “special tipsters,” including “neighbors, acquaintances and relatives.”

“A city spokesman emphasized that contact with alleged quarantine breakers took place immediately.”

The 10 largest cities in Germany have also initiated more than 250 fine proceedings for quarantine violations, the newspaper noted. Fines ranged between 250-1,000 euros, though they can run up to 25,000 euros.

Australia’s COVID camp crackdown

The Australian government has taken forced quarantine a step farther. This summer, Australian authorities began constructing COVID-19 quarantine camps across the country, including in Victoria and the Northern Territory (NT).

Some centers have already opened, as in the NT, where hundreds of people who have tested positive for the virus or had close contact with someone who did – as well as thousands of international travelers – have been relocated for at least two-week stays.

They scaled the walls of the facility Wednesday morning but were captured later that day after police launched a manhunt and set up checkpoints around the area.

All three boys, who come from the small indigenous community of Binjari, tested negative for COVID-19 before their escape, according to NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner.

Despite acknowledging that the teenagers posed a “very low” health risk, Gunner slammed them at a briefing Wednesday, saying that there was “absolutely no excuse” for their actions. “Absconding from Howard Springs isn’t just dangerous — it is incredibly stupid, because we will catch you and there will be consequences,” he vowed. The boys may face fines of over $5,000 each.

Army-enforced quarantine

Gunner, a member of the left-wing Labor Party, imposed a total lockdown in Binjari and the nearby community of Rockhole last month after reports of just nine positive cases, banning people from leaving their homes except in cases of medical emergencies. The NT at that point had reported zero COVID deaths and a few hundred cases in a population of 246,000.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison nevertheless dispatched around two dozen Australian soldiers to the region in late November, who began rounding up close contacts in the indigenous communities and transferring them to quarantine camps.

“We have already identified 38 close contacts from Binjari, but that number will go up,” Gunner announced in a November 21 press briefing. “Those 38 are being transferred now.”

Hundreds of households and close contacts have since been flown to Howard Springs, Australia’s ABC News reported, while more than 1,300 international arrivals have completed “mandatory supervised quarantine” at the facility since October. The center, which remains under 24-hour surveillance, can hold around 3,000 people.

The rules for camp detainees are severe, requiring them to stay within their rooms, or a small porch attached to the rooms, at all times, unless permitted to leave by an officer. Masks and social distancing are mandatory outside of the cabins, regardless of COVID status.

Detainees must also “comply with any directions given by an authorized officer to avoid people congregating in a quarantine zone,” according to guidance from the NT government. “You are not able to share or hand over physical objects to residents who are not your family members.”

“Quarantine facility staff will remind you about wearing your mask, staying on your veranda and physically distancing through information in your resident booklet, by sending you sms reminder texts and verbally in person if we see you are not following the Direction.”

“All residents in quarantine, including all children, are tested three times during their stay on day 1, 5 and 12. These tests are a nose and throat swabs,” the guidance noted. “If you do not undergo a test, you will be required to remain in quarantine a further 10 days at your own expense.”

Quarantine in Australia isn’t cheap. A two-week detainment in the NT costs $2,500 for an individual and $5,000 for a family of two or more.

Watch: Disturbing Confrontation Inside Australia’s ‘Gold Standard’ COVID Internment Camp

Days ago we presented the latest Orwellian headline out of Australia… “Aussie Police Arrest Teen ‘Fugitives’ Who Escaped From COVID Internment Camp”. Since then more incredibly disturbing video from inside the Northern Australian Covid internment camp, Howard Springs facility, has emerged. A frightening confrontation between a imprisoned “quarantined” woman and camp authorities was caught on hidden camera.

One host on the popular cultural commentary and news analysis site UnHerd recently introduced a segment taking a look at the fresh footage from inside the notorious Covid internment camp : “Australia. Until recently, that country was most famous for its sunshine and relaxed attitude. Well since the Covid pandemic hit we’ve all got to know another side of Australia…”

“With some of the longest and most stringent lockdowns and travel restrictions in the world, it’s become a case study of what happens when a government will do anything to keep Covid numbers low,” host Freddie Sayers’ narration continues.

“Their latest policy is to build special camps, Covid internment camps – to which infected and suspected infected people are moved. The biggest of these camps is called Howard Springs.”

“It houses up to 2,000 inmates, surrounded by tall fences and carefully policed against attempts to escape. It’s been described as the ‘gold standard’ of such camps and is being replicated across Australia.”

The woman being interrogated and threatened with a 5,000 AU$ fine in the above video can been seen in a follow-up interview below, conducted after she was released from detention…

As is shown in the video in question, camp officials confronted the quarantined woman, later identified as Hayley Hodgson, and began pointing out yellow lines that she could not cross.

She never tested positive for COVID after being tested three times. “Never had Covid. I was in close contact with someone – never got it, and I was treated literally like a criminal,” she later described. After her 14-day stint at the camp, she lost her job, returning to her home unemployed, she later confirmed.

Up until recently, Australia – with its sprawling coastline and beautiful beaches, outdoor and adventure life, and nearly year-round sunshine – was considered by most to be a large “paradise” vacation spot in the South Pacific… but now it’s marked as the place of “Covid quarantine hell”.

Meanwhile, in neighboring New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has unironically given citizens permission to use the bathroom inside other people’s homes when visiting…

COMEDY ALERT! No, Seriously …
