Report: France Will Use Existing Surveillance Grid To Enforce Social Distancing, Mask Wearing

The surveillance systems now being put to use have already been in place for a long time.

France will use its existing network of surveillance cameras to monitor how many people are wearing masks and track how citizens are complying with social distancing after its coronavirus lockdown is eased next week, according to reports.

The BBC notes that “The resort city of Cannes on the Côte d’Azur has trialled the monitoring software, installed at outdoor markets and on buses.”

Datakalab, the French firm behind the software says its algorithms “can be incorporated into existing surveillance systems in other public spaces, such as hospitals, stations, airports and shopping centres.”

The company claims that the software being installed to work with existing cameras does not violate EU data privacy laws because “No image is stored or transmitted.”

Cannes Mayor David Lisnard said, “This technology doesn’t identify people but just gives us mathematical analysis to meet people’s needs.”

So, essentially, it’s ok to track you everywhere you go to ensure you comply, so long as they don’t keep your picture on a hard drive.

France already announced that face masks will be compulsory on public transport and in schools from next week. The country’s lockdown has been more severe than most, with anyone traveling outside their home needing papers approved by the authorities. Anyone found outside without the relevant documents is subject to a fine of €135 upwards.

The case in France highlights how the framework of surveillance that has already been in place and rapidly expanding for two decades is now being used to enforce the removal of freedoms.

We also recently highlighted how tech companies all over the world are developing more sophisticated tools that will allow law enforcement to more effectively police social distancing rules.

We are so used to surveillance now that for many it doesn’t seem that much more of a change to simply give over total compliance and acceptance of a panopticon world.

Coronavirus was just the crisis need to institute permanent societal lockdown using already existing tools, as well as new technologies that can be slotted into those systems already in place.

UK Police Force Says it Will Break Up Christmas Gatherings to Enforce COVID Rules

“Police will have to intervene.”

A police force in the UK has vowed to break up Christmas family gatherings that violate coronavirus ‘social distancing’ restrictions.

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said the force wouldn’t hesitate to intervene in situations where the rules were being broken.

“If we think there’s large groups of people gathering where they shouldn’t be, then police will have to intervene. If, again, there’s flagrant breaking of the rules, then the police would have to enforce,” Jamieson remarked.

The West Midlands is currently under a Tier 2 lockdown, which means that it’s illegal for two separate households to mix indoors, although there appears to be widespread non-compliance across the country.

After BBC journalist Victoria Derbyshire said she would break the rules to see her family at Christmas, she was forced to recant and apologize.

Respondents to the news vented their fury.

“Its almost as if the police and politicians are deliberately trying to provoke people. If they do try this at Xmas things will get very nasty very quickly,” said one.

“It is now the time to stand up against this tyranny!” added another.

Others pointed out that without a warrant, police wouldn’t legally be able to enter homes to enforce the rules.

Coronavirus

Sniffer Dogs Could Be Used to Detect if Someone is Infected With COVID

Will patrol airports and other public venues.

Sniffer dogs that can detect if someone is infected with COVID-19 could be used to patrol public areas such as airports and other busy venues in the near future.

Health minister Lord Bethell praised an “extremely exciting” trial taking place in the UK that tests whether dogs can be trained to identify unique odours associated with the coronavirus infection.

With Finland having already deployed corona-sniffing dogs at its main international airport, similar measures could soon be rolled out across the west.

UK Secretary of State Matt Hancock, an ardent lockdown advocate, will visit the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to see for himself the accuracy of the tests.

“Dogs can be used as a way of screening crowds in places like airports and high-density venues,” said Lord Bethell.

And there you were thinking you’d just have to tolerate masks, mandatory government apps and vaccines to get about in the “new normal”.

As we previously highlighted, robots are already being rolled out to monitor mask compliance, while robot dogs in Singapore are already patrolling parks and other public spaces to enforce social distancing.

Health Expert: Mask Wearing Will Remain Mandatory Even After a COVID Vaccine

The new normal is a muzzled population.

A top doctor who served as an expert witness for the U.S. Congress says that even after a COVID-19 vaccine is available, mask wearing and other social distancing measures will remain mandatory.

“I feel like there is this perception that once we have a #CoronavirusVaccine life will go back to normal,” tweeted Dr.Krutika Kuppalli.

“Life will not be like it was pre-COVID. Even after we have a #vaccine you will still need to use good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance, avoid crowds and wear masks,” she added.

As we have repeatedly highlighted, despite the original lockdown and social distancing rules being introduced on the basis of ‘getting back to normal’, we’re now being told life will never return to normal.

In a CNN article written by their international security editor Nick Paton Walsh, the author asserted that the mandatory wearing of masks will become “permanent,” “just part of life,” and that the public would need to “come to terms with it.”

Earlier this month, a senior U.S. Army official said that there’ll probably never be a return to “normal” post-COVID and that rules such as social distancing and mask wearing will likely become permanent.

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates also warned that the world won’t return to normal until there is widespread take up of a second coronavirus vaccine and that this could take years.

The idea that life will never return to pre-corona normality is also being pushed by globalist bodies like the World Economic Forum, which has promoted the necessity of exploiting the pandemic to implement a “great reset.”
