As latest as Oct. 3, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern admitted that the ‘Zero COVID‘ coverage used to close down the nation was a failed technique in defeating the virus. Days later, Ardern has turned her again on her declare by reinstating indefinite lockdowns after 32 new circumstances arose in Auckland.
Not solely is Ardern doubling down on the folly of previous false guarantees with the Zero COVID technique, she can also be going full George Orwell by instructing residents to give up full compliance to government-backed COVID information and coverage, and to expel every other supply of data.
“The most up-to-date information daily. You can trust us as a source of information. You can also trust the Director General of Health and the Ministry of Health,” began Ardern.
“Otherwise dismiss anything. We will proceed to be your single supply of fact. We will present info steadily. We will share all the pieces we will. Everything else you see, take with a grain of salt. …
“New Zealanders must prepare. But do not panic, prepare. And when you see those messages, remember unless you hear it from us, it is not the truth.”
Government overreach has been a staple of the COVID-19 lockdowns: proving that energy is actually not supposed to be relinquished as soon as seized.
