Australian COVID camps are open for business, and business had been good. Until the escapes began.
Three Aboriginal teens, ages 15, 16, and 17, bolted from the Howard Springs COVID camp around 4:30 a.m. local time on Tuesday. They jumped a fence and headed for the hills.
Here is the kicker: All three teens tested negative for COVID the day before they bolted. They never actually HAD the China flu. They were locked up for coming into contact with someone who had it.
The three teens are from Katherine, in the Northern Territory, where the current COVID situation is considered “serious.” Katherine is currently in a “lockout” phase, meaning the filthy unvaxxed can’t “participate in the economy.” Most of the area is also in a “lockdown” phase, which means even more insane rules, one of which is that people are permitted to exercise outdoors for one hour per day but must remain within five kilometers of their homes.
Australian cops set up checkpoints and searched cars for the teens, as seen in the tweet below. You’d think mass-murdering cannibals had escaped. Seems a little Nazi-ish to me.

The three recalcitrant teens were “captured” and returned to the COVID camp, where they now face the possibility of spending more time, even though authorities believe they didn’t come into contact with anyone while they were on the lam. They are looking at fines of $5,024.
FACT-O-RAMA! Australians gave up their guns after a mass shooting in 1996.
Hundreds of Aborigines from Katherine have been flown into the Howard Springs camp just for coming into contact with someone who was COVID positive. All this, even though 77.88% of Katherine residents have been fully vaccinated and 87.65% have been partially vaccinated as of Nov. 17, 2021.
Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner wasn’t happy when asked about the escape. “The health risk to the community was very low, so that does give cause for comfort, but there is absolutely no excuse for the actions of these three this morning,” he said.
