    Prime Minister Michael Gunner said on Sunday that a 78-year-old woman was being treated at the Royal Darwin Hospital and that the remaining eight cases and 38 close contacts have been transferred to the Howard Springs quarantine center.

    The Australian Prime Minister has sent 28 Australian Defense Force soldiers and a number of army trucks to the region. People are only allowed to leave their home “for medical treatment, in case of emergency or as required by law”.

    Gunner said the lockdown will likely remain in place for several weeks. He added that the vaccination rate in Binjari was low and called on people to get vaccinated against Corona. Unvaccinated travelers have been banned from entering the Northern Territory since Monday.

    Curiously, his draconian measures will allow Australians to “move forward with the freedoms that should be theirs”. Gunner warned critics: “If you give a green light, give comfort to, support anybody who argues against the vaccine, you are an anti-vaxxer. Your personal vaccination status is utterly irrelevant.”

    The first case is a man in his 40s who had tested negative twice last week while at the Centre for National Resilience, but has since tested positive. He had received one dose of the vaccine.

    China: No internet access without facial recognition

    BeijingAs of December 1, the Chinese state is forcing all of the country's 1,44 billion citizens to scan their faces before they are allowed to obtain mobile or Internet subscriptions. Facial recognition as a requirement for using the Internet is the latest in a one-party state's increasingly far-reaching efforts to keep track of its citizens. Combined with the world's most comprehensive camera surveillance, as well as new supercameras and advanced AI-based software, the Chinese Communist Party is fast approaching near total surveillance. The technology is now on its way to Europe, accelerated by alleged needs to maintain virus restrictions.
