Authorities in Melbourne, Australia will use high-tech surveillance drones to catch people outside not wearing masks as well as to scan for vehicles that are in violation of curfew by being more than 5km from home.

“High powered drones will be used to find people not wearing masks and cars too far from home,” according to a 7News Melbourne news report.
The drones will also be used to ensure skate parks and playgrounds remain empty.

The surveillance devices can be flown up to a distance of 7km and produce images so clear they can “read a vehicle’s number plate from 500 meters away.”

Privacy advocates are concerned that there is no sunset clause on the use of such technology and the drones could continue to be used to spy on citizens after the pandemic ends.

7News Melbourne spoke to two residents who said they weren’t worried because they were behaving and had “nothing to hide.”

The measures are just the latest example of what represents one of the most draconian coronavirus lockdowns in the developed world after the state of Victoria announced a “state of disaster” in response to an uptick in COVID-19 cases.

There have been several instances of police physically tackling people for not adhering to mask wearing rules, including one incident when a woman was placed in a chokehold by a male police officer.

Police have also been given the power to enter people’s homes without a warrant and perform quarantine spot checks.

Drivers are also being asked to show their papers at highway checkpoints simply to get to work.

Anyone caught outside without a mask or violating the 8pm-5am curfew also risks being made to pay a massive fine.

As the post below illustrates, the rules are also being enforced by Australian Defence Force troops patrolling parks and other outdoor areas.

Police also fined a couple for allowing their child to play further than 5km from their home, while also executing a search warrant against and seizing computers belonging to two men who were planning an anti-lockdown protest.

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.”

Coronavirus

Welsh Government Now Appears To Have Banned Book Sales

Thousands of angry citizens sign petition to end ‘farcical’ lockdown measures

Published

Footage and pictures of Welsh supermarkets and shops cordoning off entire areas with items deemed to be “non-essential” continued to flood social media over the weekend, as it appears the government there has now even banned books.

Following the implementation of a full national lockdown in the British country, people began sharing their experiences as they attempted to go shopping:

The confusion over what is and isn’t “essential” has angered people, after cooking, clothes and bedding sections were covered in plastic sheeting, but Halloween tat was left untouched:

Angry citizens have begun taking measures into their own hands:

Residents of Wales are currently under a ‘Tier 3’ lockdown, which means people are being urged to stay at home, must not visit other households, while pubs, restaurants, gyms, churches and shops deemed “non-essential” are all closed.

But now, it appears the farce has taken a dark turn, with books and writing materials being banned:

What is and isn’t deemed ‘essential’ is now completely up in the air as ministers have said people should be allowed to buy ‘otherwise non-essential goods’ if there were ‘exceptional circumstances’ that meant they were essential:

Some supermarkets have given up, and admitted that they are letting customers decide what is and isn’t essential.

Some residents are still trying to see the lighter side:

For may it has already gone too far, however with thousands signing a petition to drop the draconian measures.

The petition to the Welsh government states: “We do not agree that this is a prudent or rational measure, and will create more harm than good.”

“We do not agree for example that parents should be barred from buying clothes for their children during lockdown while out shopping. This is disproportionate and cruel and we ask that the decision be reversed immediately,” the petition adds.

At time of writing the petition has over 63,000 signatures.
