Online influencer Billy Te Kahika has planned a random ‘urgent emergency action’ anti-lockdown protest over recent Community Cases that are isolated and not spreading the virus further.
A flyer was posted to Mr Kahikas’ Facebook page indicating the protest will be at Aotea Square, in Auckland, on January 30.
In-hopes many are looking to attend who oppose COVID-19 vaccines because they ‘kill’ more people than the virus and the other reason is to oppose Alert Level lockdowns. “We’re NOT Anti-Vaxxers,” the flyer indicated.
Further down; a ‘do not consent’ to be used as guinea pigs jabbing unsafe vaccines into the arms of the elderly was the initial idea of the upcoming dimming protest.
The Ministry of Health has no indication that lockdowns will occur in the near future because the recent cases are isolated from spreading further. Initial mass-testing has given a good idea that no further spread in the community has occurred.
In a comment sent to thisquality on January 26, the Ministry said: “There have been a number of calls over the past two days to Healthline from people wanting clarification between close and casual plus contact. A close contact is someone who’s more likely to be at higher risk of being infected because they spent time in close proximity to a confirmed case during the case’s infectious period.”
“Yesterday [January 25] more than 1,500 people were tested at community testing centres around the region. Frontline staff are working hard to ensure everyone who needs to be tested gets a test as soon as possible. If you have symptoms but have not been to a location of interest, stay home and call Healthline for advice. Nine community-based testing centres have been operating since Sunday [January 24] afternoon.”
Mr Kahika claimed in the past that a lockdown was ‘planned’ by the Government to occur on January 15, however, it did not happen. Upon the announcement of a recent Northland Community Case, he encouraged his followers to go panic shopping over the announcement made on January 24 right after.
