Welcome to the New Zealand Police State

“Achtung! No kisses, hugs or handshakes. Social Distancing is enforced!” Not quite yet, but it’s on the brink.

It seems that this pandemic is almost the sole topic of conversation now. (Police helicopter hovering overhead as I type this). Fortunately there are a good number of awake folk around who aren’t fooled (he writes as the chopper does another low circuit over the house).

Coronavirus: We can enforce self-isolation, Jacinda Ardern says

KEY POINTS:
• Effective from midnight Sunday, all travellers, except for those coming from the Pacific islands, will have to self-isolate for 14 days on their arrival to New Zealand
• The PM says the rules are the toughest in the world
• She told New Zealanders not to travel overseas if they don’t have to and issued stark advice: no hugs, hongi or handshakes
• All cruise ships have been banned to NZ until June 30
• There will also be further announcements on mass gatherings

With the number of people asked to stay at home set to soar, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the Government and the police can enforce self-isolation.

And she says the Government’s economic package, to be announced on Tuesday, will be the most significant one-off injection into the economy of her entire tenure as Prime Minister.

Yesterday Ardern announced that any person from any country, excluding the Pacific islands, is now required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival to the country, and she encouraged all New Zealanders to avoid all non-essential travel overseas.

As well as affecting thousands of people’s travel plans, the move is expected to significantly impact Kiwis’ jobs and New Zealand economy.

This morning Ardern sought to calm fears about whether people would self-isolate properly, saying that the 10,500 New Zealanders who had done it so far had been overly compliant, with some staying home for more than 14 days.

But she said authorities, including police, had the power to quarantine people at a medical facility and station staff at the door.

That power had not been used so far, she told Q+A.

Sun Mar 15 , 2020
In 1979 scientist Eric Spurr warned that wide scale poisoning of New Zealand with compound 1080, intended to kill introduced mammals, was actually killing kea and many other animals. It took decades before NZ’s Department of Conservation (DoC) finally began to monitor kea deaths from 1080 poisoning. Dr Jo Pollard, […]
