Sydney's health system is buckling under the pressure of the city's spiralling Covid outbreak (That's the "killer virus" with a 99.8% survival rate), with surgery suspended at several hospitals and the army drafted in to enforce lockdown.
Defence Minister Peter Dutton confirmed on Thursday night that 300 personnel would be deployed to help NSW Police enforce the strict restrictions on millions across Sydney.
They will be deployed across Sydney from Monday.
It comes after NSW recorded its worst-ever Covid case numbers on Thursday, with a whopping 239 cases as the state's health system struggles to contain the Indian Delta strain.
Newly released figures also showed the state's contact tracing system was being overwhelmed by case numbers, with a soaring number of mystery cases going unsolved for weeks, and a slippage in the time taken to notify positive test results and to interview new cases about their movements.
Sydney's Royal Prince Alfred, St Vincent's and Liverpool hospitals have all had to pause non-urgent surgery during lockdown, as Health Minister Brad Hazzard conceded the hospital system was under 'significant stress.'
(Natural News) Australia recently deployed law enforcement helicopters to enforce Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) mandates. The move is part of the country’s “zero COVID” strategy, which aims to eliminate coronavirus infections through lockdowns. While the country has received praise for its response to the pandemic with just over 34,000 cases and less than 1,000 fatalities, many Australians denounced the lockdowns.
One Australian man who was outside captured footage of a blue and white helicopter telling people to go home from a loudspeaker. The helicopter circled the man and warned that local police would search for him and fine him for violating lockdown orders. Australia’s current lockdown rules mandated a fine of almost 700 Australian dollars (US$500) for rule-breakers.
A separate report by the Daily Mail also mentioned law enforcement using helicopters to announce public health measures. Footage uploaded to social media showed officers aboard a helicopter warning people to leave Gordons Bay beach in Sydney. Its announcement said local police had been notified and warned that “anyone breaching the public health order will be issued a fine.”
Another report by Metro said police also ordered beachgoers at the Coogee and Bondi beaches to go home. Most Australians headed to the beach to soak up some sun despite New South Wales (NSW) Premier Gladys Berejiklian calling on people to stay home. “Nearly 1,000 people were spoken to, ensuring they were complying with the local government area’s requirement,” a spokesman for the NSW Police Force (NSWPF) said.
Authorities in the country also mandated COVID-19 testing and mask-wearing outdoors, and issued 250 fines for these breaches. Meanwhile, around 300 unarmed members of the Australian Army helped police with door-to-door visits to ensure COVID-positive Australians were self-isolating.
(Natural News) Western liberals continue to prove that they are no different than first, second or third-world dictators and tyrants as they continue to politicize the COVID-19 pandemic to seize power.
In the U.S., one Democrat-run city after another has begun to issue mandates that citizens must prove they have had the vaccine or they aren’t going to be allowed to fully participate in society, like some kind of vaccine ‘caste system’ of privileged vaxxers versus an unprivileged underclass of second-class citizens who must stay hidden and out of the mainstream.
The federal government is doing the same thing. The king of the regime, Joe Biden, has mandated that all federal employees must get the vaccine or be forced to take an uncomfortable COVID test every single week if they want to keep their jobs.
In Europe, new lockdowns are causing massive protests and rioting in countries like the UK, France, Italy and Germany.
And in Australia, the government is actually using the military to enforce more mandatory lockdowns as the ‘Delta variant’ of COVID-19 begins to spread (though it’s not at all as deadly as the original strain and the vast majority of infected people are only experiencing mild symptoms).
But it’s worse than that in the land Down Under: Now the government is requiring a minimum number of vaccinated in order for the entire citizenry to be ‘given’ their rights back — proving the wisdom of America’s founders who wrote a Constitution observing and protecting inalienable rights that can neither be given nor taken away by government.
Authorities “Won’t Hesitate” to go “Door-to-Door” to Perform COVID Tests on Australians
“We’re prepared to do what has to be done.”
13 August, 2021 Paul Joseph Watson
The Premier of Victoria has asserted that authorities “won’t hesitate” to go “door-to-door” to carry out mandatory COVID tests on Australians.
Daniel Andrews made the comments during a press conference as Australia continues to pursue a ludicrous ‘zero COVID’ policy that mandates draconian lockdowns in response to just a handful of new cases.
“We’re not at a point where we need to be going door to door,” said Andrews. “We’re not at a point where we need entire suburbs to come out and get tested. If we get to that stage, then we won’t hesitate. I think we’ve shown, in fact I know we’ve shown that we’re prepared to do what has to be done, popular or otherwise.”
Given that members of the military are enforcing lockdown and quarantines in some areas of the country, one wonders how those who don’t want to get tested will be treated.
Also, how far a step is it to go from mandatory door-to-door COVID tests to mandatory door-to-door COVID vaccinations?
Andrews also signaled that those who refuse to take the vaccine will be discriminated against and remain under de facto lockdown rules indefinitely.
“This is a difficult conversation to have with people now, in an almost threatening tone, when people who want to get vaccinated can’t because we don’t have enough stuff. There will come a time though when I think restrictions will apply to those who have not been vaccinated, rather than restrictions applying to all of us.”
“Now if that’s not an incentive to go and get vaccinated I don’t know what is. But I can see a time when to get into a venue, to attend a major event, to participate fully as a customer, a client, a ticket holder, a patron, a viewer, however you want to look at it, being vaccinated will mean that you get in, and being vaccinated will mean that you don’t.”
Australia has imposed one of the most brutal lockdowns in the developed world, with mandatory outdoor mask mandates that have led to innumerable arrests and shocking scenes like the one last week in Brisbane where an elderly man suffered a heart attack after being harassed by police for not wearing a face covering while exercising outside.
Aussies have also been told not to go anywhere near their grandkids and not to engage in conversation with each other, even if they’re wearing masks.
People who merely post anti-lockdown information online could also face fines of up to $11,000 dollars under an absurdly authoritarian new law.
Meanwhile, as we highlight in the video below, Australians are being forcibly carted off to mental asylums against their will if they dissent against the official COVID narrative.
"Unprecedented" Police Operation Underway In Sydney To Enforce COVID Restrictions

New South Wales (NSW) Police have issued nearly 600 infringement notices, or fines, on individuals found breaching public health orders on the first day of a three-week crackdown on COVID-19 non-compliance.
Deputy Police Commissioner Mal Lanyon said it was “disappointing” that there were issues with compliance even after Australia’s most populous state recorded 452 new COVID infections on Aug. 16.
“Yesterday, we issued 579 infringement notices which is disappointing. It shows that people are still not complying; 34 people received court attendant notices,” he told the Nine Network.
According to Lanyon, police conducted 3,800 “welfare checks” to see if residents were following stay-at-home orders.
One COVID positive man in Sydney’s Fairfield was found to have breached his health order after police arrived at his home and found he wasn’t there. The man was unable to provide a reason for vacating his home.
The entire state of NSW is now under lockdown to contain an outbreak of the Delta variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus.
Under current restrictions, residents are kept within a 5km radius of their homes. They can only leave their homes for essential reasons, including work, shopping, exercise, and to get the vaccine or tested.
To ensure compliance, authorities have amped up fines from $1,000 to $5,000 for breaches of “self-isolation” rules. Perceived loopholes in public health orders have also been closed, including removing the phrase “recreation” from the few essential reasons that allow residents to leave home.
Police began spearheading Operation Stay at Home from midnight on Aug. 16, which saw authorities dispatch 1,400 additional highway patrol officers to enforce compliance. Moreover, 800 Australian Defence Force troops will now patrol the city after an additional 500 soldiers were dispatched to the Greater Sydney area, in addition to the 300 already deployed.
Deputy Commissioner Mick Willing said, “The unprecedented operation will see thousands of police officers from police districts and police area commands across the state working alongside our colleagues from the Australian Defence Force.”
While Police Commissioner Mick Fuller told reporters these were some of the “strongest powers” in the history of NSW Police.
NSW Police Minister David Elliott is urging the public to tip-off police as to any family gatherings or visits that breach health orders.
“I implore members of the community to consider Crime Stoppers as one of the most useful and important weapons in the war against COVID,” Elliott told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“Do not underestimate its ability to gather vital intelligence for police.”
NSW State Premier Gladys Berejikilian has set a target of six million vaccinations before restrictions are relaxed.
Vax-entration Camps? Australian Government Builds “Mandatory Quarantine
As if it was straight out of Orwell’s 1984, the camp will be named ‘The Center for National Resilience’ and government health officials are calling the experimental jab the golden “ticket to freedom.”
Back to reality – Police Officers who are accompanied by the military have already been coming to people’s homes and taking them away as they conduct random “welfare checks” and follow-up tips about rule-breakers who have been ratted out by their fellow citizens.
(Natural News) Brad Hazzard, the Minister for Health and Medical Research in New South Wales, Australia, has announced that 24,000 children will be “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) without their parents’ permission at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney.
In order to attend school in the upcoming term, students in Australia are having to get injected for the Chinese Virus. To make it as easy as possible for them to roll up their sleeves, the government rented out an entire sports stadium for quick in-and-out jabbing.
“Maybe mum and dad can drop you. Your mum or dad, or one of your family drop you,” Hazzard stated during a press conference, noting that this is a “golden opportunity” for Australia’s youth to get the shots, including those who do not want their parents knowing about it.
“Make sure they stay outside the arena because we don’t want too many people obviously milling around inside the arena. Make some arrangements for – after you’ve got your access to that golden opportunity of the vaccination – to wait outside for you.”
Hazzard added that no parents or adults of any kind will be allowed inside the Qudos Bank Arena or anywhere in Sydney Olympic Park while their children are getting injected.
“I want to stress that to the mums and dads, your children will be well looked after inside,” he said. “When they arrive, they’ll be literally ushered.”
