An alleged mystery Chalker has been spreading messages that COVID-19 is a ‘lie' and ‘scam' in the form of chalk writing, on pathways and roadside barricades.
It was located on Aotaki Street in the township of Ōtaki. The writing follows recent Alert Level restrictions over three South Auckland Community Cases.
Reports supplied to thisquality indicated that not only was the township being chalked with derived messages claiming the virus is a hoax, but it was also being written on the northern State Highway 1 bridge.
The message written is spreading misinformation and misinforming residents who may happen to see it.

“COVID 1984 fraud hoax. Lies. Scam,” the message read.
Chalk can wash away. Usually, Police give out a warning to the specific individual if reported and identified before inflicting fines.
Fines apply typically on private property. This event, however, was not on private property.
The COVID-19 virus is very real; however, politicians should ensure the safety of others rather than passing specific laws that could create problems in the future.
This was evident with the COVID-19 Public Health Response Act passing where Trevor Mallard ripped out a sign that opposed it following a series of hearings by concerned individuals.
