Australia Unveils Orwellian App Using Facial Recognition Software, Geolocation to Enforce Covid Quarantine Orders

The government of South Australia, one of the country's six states, has implemented a new policy requiring Australians to use an app with facial recognition software and geolocation to prove that they are abiding by a 14-day quarantine for travel within the country.

While a conservative expert described the policy as "Orwellian," he told Fox News that it represents an improvement over the current COVID-19 policy. Australians voluntarily choose the quarantine app over alternative quarantine measures.

Australia has banned international travel, unless residents have a permit to leave the country. The country has also severely restricted domestic travel. Residents must spend 14 days in quarantine upon return.

Steven Marshall, premier of the state of South Australia, launched the quarantine app policy in late August. Residents returning from New South Wales and Victoria, two other Australian states, may spend their 14 days in post-travel quarantine at home, rather than in a hotel, so long as they download and use the "Orwellian" app, developed by the South Australian government, ABC News Australia reported.

The app uses geolocation and facial recognition software to track those in quarantine. The app will contact people at random, asking them to provide proof of their location within 15 minutes.

"We don't tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes," Marshall said.


If the resident cannot verify his or her location or identity when requested, the South Australia Health Department will notify the police, who will then conduct an in-person check on the person in quarantine. Marshall said the government will not be storing any of the information provided to the app.

In a statement to Fox News, the government of South Australia noted that registration to use the app for home quarantine is voluntary. Only about 20 people who have applied for the program are using the app in early September.

Frankly I think a few should be pinged off like the jihadi in Auckland couple of days ago .
@epirb 'frankly' you should learn to speak unambiguously. Or not speak at all - when you speak directly it is bigotted as I perceive it. As for the SA requirement I doubt it will be enforced, but I do not object to it
We don't tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes," Marshall said.

And yet the terrorist stabs up a supermarket. Go figure.
Don't go after the fascist dog-murdering brutes in power. Don't go after the demons, go after somebody's Nan in aisle 6.

No I'm rather taken aback by the you have 15 seconds to comply, so sleep with one eye open. Christ all you've gotta do is call torture legal and these lemmings will follow it.
CC, it's 15 minutes, not seconds and only 20 people have taken up the app. Another pointless poss pushed by Fox Entertainment.
Welcome to the Chinese century where the latest technology and the feudal darkness combine into misery on earth. The worst part is there doesn't need to be a conspiracy, you just have to be a coward who has lived too easily for too long.
And why is it this way because all is relative. Safespace is never safe it is merely more easily upset. At what point does something become a threat? Sooner rather than later. Wealth and security are not freedom they're a hypochondria and Munchausens. Say boo to a ghost and freedom is on the run
And we'll find out what China means by a strong family. It's not a strong family. It's that you'd stab a baby if it wasn't yours, but maybe not your own mother. That's what it means. You might be a little less than pure evil towards those closest to you. But you're pure evil towards humanity in general.
And I know you might not think much of young people or or black people but we've all got a much greater and more powerful enemy. Even the muslims, we cannot afford to be fighting them.

Years ago, while in Germany, I read an article, 'the Net is Descending Over Us.' It warned of a growing police state, in an area well-qualified to recognize a police state.

It should be apparent by now that this vastly- overhyped Plandemic is an excuse to usher in totalitarian control.

People should be mindful of a quote from the erudite former slave Frederick Douglass

"The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all-absorbing, and for the time being, putting all other tumults to silence. It must do this or it does nothing.

If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle.

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

. . If we ever get free from the oppressions and wrongs heaped upon us, we must pay for their removal. We must do this by labor, by suffering, by sacrifice, and if needs be, by our lives and the lives of others."
The South Australian Government should be shut down because there is no provision in the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act that allows a state on mass to spy on the people in deed the Bill of Rights Act (1688) an Act that declares the Rights and Liberties of the peoples includes relates to our Constitution. The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act says that all laws made by the Parliament of the Commonwealth under the Constitution, shall be binding on the courts, judges, and people of very State and of every part of the Commonwealth, which includes South Australia (div7 and New Zealand!). In my experience I have found and record Federal Family Court and Federal Full Court in South Australia are a grossly dishonest rabble, incompetent morons who are fleecing the families of Australia on a massive scale and cannot be trusted to uphold rules and regulations prescribed well-meaning peoples representatives in our parliament who are also constantly been ambushed by the grossly dishonest party politics engaged in politicians lining there pockets and personal interests rather that of the peoples. All politicians are supposed to ensure the people’s views are heard in our Parliament, yet they promote own vested interests and views that they are not paid by the people to express or engage in.
e.g. the legislative power of the commonwealth shall be vested in Federal Parliament, which shall consist of the Queen, Senate and a House so Representatives not the State Premiers and certainly not be adding and abetting Bill Gates.
Prior to Gate’s exit, Windows & Google demanded change to html protocol from http:// to https://, and digital password sign in be scrapped and replaced with facial recognition.
I put it to the reader the South Australian Government is implementing another Bill Gates scam; the SA politicians are doing the bidding of Gates.
Perhaps some of you good folks forget that Bill Gates in 1990’s bribed Australian Prime Minister John Howard. Gates got him to pass legislation taking away the Australian peoples patient rights so Gates could escape product guarantee he expressed in terms and conditions Win 95 & Office he had already sold (donated computers to Howard’s corrupt government) so Bill Gates could claim continued ownership of the goods Wi95, he had already sold to the peoples of Australia. A thief and his servants.
Least we forget Bill Gates mother Mary Maxwell Gates, her paternal grandfather, James Willard Maxwell (1864–1951), was president of the National City Bank in Seattle from 1911 to 1929 and a director of the Seattle branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the Federal Reserve Bank United States of American scum; the Rothschild’s.
But there’s more:
Coined by June Almeida and David Tyrrell who first observed and studied human coronaviruses, that word was first used in print in 1968 by an informal group of virologists in the journal Nature to designate the new family of viruses. Scientific name Coronavirus was accepted as a genus named by the International Committee for the Nomenclature of Viruses (later renamed International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses) in 1971.
The earliest reports of a coronavirus infection in animals occurred in the late 1920s, when an acute respiratory infection of domesticated chickens emerged in North America. Arthur Schalk and M.C. Hawn in 1931 made the first detailed report, which described a new respiratory infection of chickens in North Dakota. Gasping and listlessness with high mortality rates of 40–90% characterized the infection of newborn chickens.
Leland David Bushnell and Carl Alfred Brandly isolated the virus that caused the infection in 1933.
The virus was then known as infectious bronchitis virus (IBV). Charles D. Hudson and Fred Robert Beaudette cultivated the virus for the first time in 1937.

Some of you like myself are sick and tired of been lied to by Christians, they are lying history tells our countries USA, Britain, Australia and New Zealand are constantly engaging in violence to promote lies, they are constantly stealing and funding economies by killings millions of peoples, and it is my view, the current ongoing international trade war is been played out attacking economies across the gold with an organized you gunner die flu lie.
But there’s more:
May 2, 2018 Bill Gates Donated $12 Million to Develop a Universal Flu Vaccine and Donald Trump actually offered Gates a job, Gates foundation thinks a universal flu vaccine would not only eliminate the pandemic risk, but would have significant health benefits,” Gates told STAT in an interview, before he announced the funding. Gates turned $10 billion into $200 billion worth of economic benefit by getting large Super Funds to invest in vaccines to laminate your good old common flu.
I kid you not, Investing in global health organizations aimed at increasing access to vaccines creates a 20-to-1 return, the Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist says. Putting $10 billion into the S&P 500 would have grown only to $17 billion over 18 years, factoring in reinvested dividends, Gates tells CNBC in Davos.

The Prime Minister of Australia for once in his life should take a long look in a mirror, stop politicians from lying to the people, we have a right under our Constitution to our own beliefs, you PM Morrison have a legal obligation to shut the idiot South Australian Government down, they do not have a right to do the bidding of Bill Gates, nor do they have a right to implement surveillance of all people every time they go shopping.

China has the world’s larges population, and they have a lot on their plate at the moment.
They just pledged to help Taliban (lots of Copper, Oil and Gas in Afghanistan) create a successful economy.
Russia supported Korea & Vietnam in the war against America attack (directly and indirectly) on those nations, Korea 1946, and Vietnam 1954; they also supported China in its war against Japan in the 1930's. Then enter George Bush following Regans New World Order demands.

In the past China was occupied by Britain & America who had attempted to get the Chinese people hooked on Opium, that lead to two wars against Britain & America, the second one called the Boxer Rebellion.
The Chinese beat Britain & America, but the Chinese government decided they wanted to trade with other nations so leased Hong Kong and the territories with 99 year lease to Britain, that lease recently expired and agreed six year transition period has now also expired. So then Chinese Communist Government made a decision that Hong Kong was to be administered solely by Chinese government not the old Hong Kong interim arrangements.

China asserts Taiwan is and always has been part of China, and it (China) also asserts much of the South China Sea was historically part of China as the Chinese were one of the firsts peoples to sail ships and trade visa sea with India and Arabia and Africa. And they are now telling Britain & America that America (particularly) is not going to rule China again, it is saying America is not going to tell China who China can trade with nor that Chinese trades monetary settlements will be settled according to America’s preferences, nor in accordance with President Ronald Regans (1984) demand that all international monitory settlements are to be settled in US Dollar at a US$ price set by solely by "supply and demand for goods and services" crap that has clearly failed and is unacceptable in Europe and Asia.
So China created the One Belt Initiative that now has 130 + member countries settling there trade in other than US$.
Enter Russia President Putin knows full well America fed Hitler’s Nazi Party every thing they needed knowing full well the predominantly Catholic Nazi would create a war, it did.
President Putin is aware (has publicly stated so) Russia lost over 24 million people during WW2 directly in consequence to America feeding Hitler.
The total number of humans killed during WW2 was over 64 million people.

So where does all this go, America has been funding its economy creating war after war, and what current unelected president Biden is stated America needs a war to rejuvenate its economy, he has set out to create war against Russia & China to rejuvenate the failing American Economy. Ukraine and South China Sea.

Put simplistically capitalism continually profits go up and up then as the wealthy own all the wealth and every one else is poor, the system crashes because profits can no longer be generated.

So capitalism needs to redistribute wealth (after the crash) and start generating profits again.
The Flu bullshit is an international trade war that’s speeding things along by screwing with profits. World wide people are been forced to stay inside there houses and eat shit while lying bastards trying to create another war get it together so poor peoples sons and daughters can go to another war and those remaining, can start generating profits again by making ships, planes, bombs, bullets shit and so forth to rejuvenate economies America First so USA can again control international monetary settlements....
@Willy3411
I have copied what i posted in here to my own thread so you can by all means if my having an opinion that differs from and offends thee by all means delete no problem.
I believe what I have posted goes a long towards explaining why I strongly object to Facial Recognition been implemented not just to satisfy Windows and Google desires, but the State governments in Australia to.
Basically I believe we all are been continually lied to by the Christians and that needs to stop, sooner the betterwave
