New Zealand is heading for tyranny and economic misery as authorities engage the military to run quarantines. The seriousness of the Covid-19 virus which killed only 22 continues to be overstated. Strict border controls continue and compassionate exceptions to quarantine rules will get tighter as the South Pacific Nation’s left collision Government deals with two Covid-19 positives slipping through undetected. New Zealand was lauded around the world for eliminating Covid-19 after being Covid-19 free for 24 days. The two new cases prompted criticism from around the world. There are warnings that the country might have to stay closed to the rest of the world for years to come if it wants to retain its coveted elimination status.
The New Zealand economy is showing signs of hemorrhaging and more job losses and business closures are predicted as Government wage subsidies end later this year. So far NZ$62.1 billion is allocated for Covid-19 relief. New Zealand, with a population of about 5 million, has an annual GDP of about NZ$333 billion in a good year. It is expected that 230,000 employers will still be receiving the government wage subsidy at the time of writing. Border closures have killed the picturesque adventure country’s tourism industry worth NZ$16.2 billion. The Covid-19 crisis lockdown resulted in an estimated 39% reduction in business at the strictest level and 24% at the next severe level. Registered unemployment is predicted to rise from 4% in January to 9% by November – the highest it has been in almost 30 years and that figure does not include people who do not qualify for the country’s job seeker benefit. As of mid-June, there were an extra 43,047 people registered with welfare services on top of the 111,000 registered in January. A John Hopkins University study from 1940 to 1974 showed that for every 1.4% rise in unemployment there is an increase in mortality of 2.7%. That will lead to many more deaths than Covid-19 – in fact, 135,000 extra deaths, not just the actual 22 or projected 80,000.
Public Falling Into Line but…
Despite the economic fallout and coming further pain the public mostly seems on board with government actions, not realizing the layer of tyranny being built beneath the public relations and “let’s be kind” veneer. It appears the New Zealand Government is hopeful the public will keep falling into line but has a concerning back-up plan should resistance appear.
A leaked email reveals Minister Jacinda Adern’s office instructing ministers to not explain anything to the media as the public was on board and things had gone well.
However, plan B is has been released.
The military, who according to a former military man, is in training for public unrest in New Zealand, is now taking over the border quarantine enforcement in the wake of the two COVID cases which slipped through. And the military is being equipped with updated hardware including maritime patrol aircraft and new armored vehicles, according to Defence Minister Ron Mark who defended questions about whether the spending was wise in the current Covid-19 economy.
If that were not enough, the Government still has the new controversial Covid-19 Health Response Bill to fall back on which gives police sweeping powers to potentially enter homes without warrants while enforcing Covid-19 alert level rules. An internet censorship bill, which will give the Government powers to remove content it deems inappropriate, is also currently making its way into law. It is classified as urgent.
Authorities Hell-Bent on Pushing Fear
New Zealanders who are enjoying more freedom and rejoicing in the seeming eradication of Covid-19 are now being told by the New Zealand leftish media that it is normal to experience anxiety about the two new cases. It appears there is a suggestion being made that they should be fearful and we cannot live with any cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand at all. It is far too dangerous. After all 22 people died of the ghastly virus which needs to be stamped out at all costs. Yes, that is right. New Zealand had a death rate of between 4 and 5 people per million of population and those who sadly died were all over the age of 60, mostly with underlying health conditions and many in rest homes….
I’m sure the public disarmament following the christchurch staged event will be useful at this point.
