Online influencer Billy Te Kahika visited a business following the recent Northland COVID-19 Community Case announcement.

When thisquality contacted the Cafe management for comment, it was acknowledged that he did visit twice within the last 11 days.

“Its well known by NZPP members that the Fat Camel was used as a base for people to meet with billy at this cafe in the past,” wrote the source.
At the same location, an interview of Mr Kahika with Mediaworks according to insider information was conducted.
Fat Camel Cafe management said to thisquality that they have no affiliation with Mr Kahika.
“We have no association, affiliation, or share any ideology ideas with [Mr Kahika],” said management.
The business is clear to stay open and is working closely with Northland and Auckland’s DHB Health officials regarding potential close contacts.
Management wished the 56-year-old woman a speedy recovery. “There is other businesses in the same boat. It is very important to listen to what the health departments and what the people who contact you recommend and following the guidance.”
Fat Camel Cafe was not worried about having to close down over to the Community Case. They said that there is no worries because appropriate safety precautions such as hand sanitiser and QR code tracking are being used to prevent the virus from spreading.
