Authorities in Quebec City, Canada have announced they will isolate “uncooperative” citizens in a coronavirus facility, the location of which remains a secret.

During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive.

This led to them being deemed “uncooperative” and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility.

“[W]e may isolate someone for 14 days,” Girard said during the press conference. “And it is what we did this morning…forced a person to cooperate with the investigation…and police cooperation was exceptional.”

The health official then outlined how the state is also tracking down people for violating their home quarantine and forcibly removing them to the secret facility.

“Because we have had people isolated at home. And then, we saw the person was not at home. So, we went to their home, and then told them, we are isolating you where we want you to be,” said Girard.

“Six other Quebec City bars “known to have been frequented by Kirouac regulars” are now being examined by public health officials,” reports the RAIR Foundation.

“It should be noted that it is not being claimed that anyone is actually sick from the coronavirus. But the state has the power to force a citizen into isolation anyway.”

As we previously highlighted, the government of New Zealand announced similar measures, saying that they will put all new coronavirus infectees and their close family members in “quarantine facilities.”

Students Say They’re Being Treated Like ‘Prisoners’ Due to Draconian COVID Measures

Forced to eat alone, security guards roam the halls listening for noises.

Students at universities throughout the United Kingdom are being treated like ‘prisoners’ as draconian coronavirus rules mandate they eat alone, aren’t allowed to go out and are forced to cut themselves off from others or face suspension.

Interviews with students at Edinburgh University illustrate how overbearing the new rules are, with students being made to bring their own cutlery and eat alone at spaced out exam-style desks as the room is constantly patrolled by monitors ensuring they don’t violate the protocols.

“Now they have taken the takeaway option away and I’ve been told that everyone is forced to eat alone and not allowed to get up from their allocated table for more food or water,” said Liberty Phelan, who edits the student newspaper.

“There are huge queues to get into the dining hall and staff lead students to tables so you don’t even choose who you sit next to,” she added.

“In the accommodation you’re only allowed one other person in your room, but some people have had parties and the police have been called,” said Phelan.

Another student who wished to remain anonymous says students have now begun skipping meals to avoid the experience altogether.

First year student Florence Carr-Jones said inspectors patrolled halls of residence, ensuring no fun could be had.

“Security guards roam the halls in the evenings knocking on noisy doors, threatening fines and suspensions,” she said.

The university has also called police on students for holding illegal parties, warning them they face being kicked out.

Students are also being told that they’re not allowed out this weekend and will be legally barred from going home for Christmas.

“Not even terrorists are treated this badly,” remarked former Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Philips.

Imagine being excited to start your first year at university and getting to meet a bunch of new friends, only to find that you’re treated like a prisoner and aren’t even allowed to go out or have social contact with more than one person.

As we highlighted earlier, the streets of the UK are also now being patrolled by ‘COVID street enforcers’ who are peering into windows and letterboxes to make sure pubs and private member clubs are not staying open past the new 10pm curfew.

The British government also encouraged citizens to spy on each other and report their neighbors to authorities despite the fact that coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have virtually flatlined, with a relatively minor increase in cases being due to more testing and huge numbers of false positives.

Report: UK Chief Scientific Adviser Owns £600,000 Worth Of Shares In Covid Vaccine Manufacturer

Government says there is no conflict of interest

The UK’s Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance has hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of shares in a company that has been contracted to develop a coronavirus vaccine for the government, a report has revealed.

The Telegraph notes that Vallance owns 43,000 shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) where he used to work as head of research and development.

Vallance previously accumulated 404,201 GSK shares, equating to a humongous £6.1 million in six years between 2012 to 2018, according to the report.

When he was appointed by the government, Vallance sold most of the shares, cashing in on £5 million, but did retain a sizeable portion, which would provide quite a return should GSK’s vaccine come out on top over that of other pharmaceutical companies.

The Telegraph report notes that GSK has already signed contracts with both the UK and US governments, which could see up to 60 million doses of the vaccine provided in the UK and 100 million doses in the US.

The US government has already advanced £1.65 million to GSK, working along with Sanofi, another drug manufacturer. The deals have seen GSK’s share price increase by close to two percent.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock denied that Vallance holding GSK shares was a conflict of interest, saying “there are rules around these kinds of things and I’m sure that Sir Patrick has been fully advised by them.”

“If you know Sir Patrick Vallance as I do, any suggestion that he is doing anything other than his level best to try and tackle this virus is wrong,” Hancock claimed.

Another anonymous spokesperson for the UK government also denied the conflict of interest, noting that Vallance does not have any input on the government’s decisions to procure vaccines, and that “appropriate steps were taken to manage the government chief scientific adviser’s (GCSA) interests in line with advice provided at the time.”

Hancock has previously said that he hopes ‘everybody would have the vaccine’, if and when a coronavirus shot is rolled out, and refused to rule out making it mandatory for every citizen.

In the UK, scientists previously expressed doubts over the effectiveness of a vaccine that has been rushed to human trials, after all of the monkeys used in initial testing later contracted coronavirus.

Now, reports indicate that the UK government is seriously considering deliberately infecting healthy volunteers with coronavirus in order to further test possible vaccines.

Uber Demands Refusniks Take ‘Mask Selfies’ Before They’re Allowed to Use Service

Screeching ad copy demands total compliance.

Uber is now demanding that customers who have been flagged for previously refusing to wear a mask take a ‘mask selfie’ within the app or be barred from using the service altogether in future.

A lecturing new ad campaign from the taxi service screams “No mask. No ride. We said it. We meant it.”

The company then touts its “Mask Verification Service,” which forces customers who were previously reported by drivers for not wearing a mask to take a picture of their masked face within the app to be allowed to use the service again.

“Now, if you’re ever flagged for not wearing a mask, you’ll have to take a selfie in the app to verify that you’re wearing one before your next ride,” states the advisory.

Respondents on Twitter weren’t too keen on the idea.

“Nanny state aesthetics are going to kill companies,” said one.

“They’re dead set on making city life as unbearable as possible rn,” remarked another.

“That copy makes me wanna never ride with Uber again. So fuckin whack,” said another.

If only Uber was as serious about protecting passengers from being raped by its drivers as they were enforcing coronavirus mask rules.
