The Australian government is building more “quarantine facilities” due to COVID-19.
The Premier of Queensland Annastacia Palaszczuk announced that a new camp will be built at Wellcamp Airport near Toowoomba.
“As we contend with the dangerous Delta variant, we need fit-for-purpose quarantine facilities.”
As Australia experiences what has been described as one of the most authoritarian military lockdowns due to COVID-19, the Premier of Queensland has been calling for the government to build more “quarantine facilities” that resemble modern concentration camps.
Annastacia Palaszczuk said in a tweet that a new quarantine facility will be built at Wellcamp Airport near Toowoomba. “As we contend with the dangerous Delta variant, we need fit-for-purpose quarantine facilities,” tweeted Palaszczuk.
“That’s why we’ve taken decisive action to build this new 1000-bed, dedicated facility under a joint agreement between the Palaszczuk Government and the landowner @Wagner_Corp. Wagner Corporation expects the first stage of the facility to be delivered for use by the end of 2021.”
As of the last 24 hours, the Premier has put out a series of statements calling for regional quarantine facilities throughout Australia. “It’s a no-brainer,” said Palaszczuk. “We urgently need fit-for-purpose quarantine facilities to keep us safe. It means we can manage arrivals into Queensland more safely and reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading in our community.”
