Check these talking heads speaking so casually about people escaping from involuntary quarantine camp (aka prison).

[Note how the word “fugitives” in the first report has been carefully replaced with “wards” to render the Stasi searches of cars and citizens more palatable]
In Darwin’s international arrival quarantine facility, strict daily routines stop COVID-19’s spread People are given three meals a day at the centre, which means, depending on capacity, staff can be tasked with serving more than 10,000 meals a week.
Quarantining in paradise [aka “Keep the cattle docile until the killing floors”]
Travellers who need to quarantine in Darwin are entitled to fresh air, conversation and exercise. Faced with lockdowns and hotel quarantine, these people say quarantining in the Top End was the obvious choice. Hot dinners are made daily by a local catering company working at the site. Cold breakfasts and lunches are delivered at the same time under strict conditions, catering director Amanda Swift said.
“Once we’ve packed those up, all 20-plus staff members go on-site and get a swab test done,” she said. “Then we come back to get the hot food from the kitchen and we pack it all up onto trollies and we streamline it … to try to feed everyone in under 2 hours. We get some beautiful feedback,” she added.
“This the first time we’ve had to use the centre for large numbers of people from an Aboriginal community, but it probably won’t be the last time,” he said. Since the confirmation of cases in the community of Robinson River and Katherine on November 15, positive cases and hundreds of household and other close contacts have been flown to the facility in Darwin to undertake quarantine.
