In Australia, we are now operating under a ‘human biosecurity emergency’ and this relates to ‘human coronavirus with pandemic potential’. This emergency declaration has been extended to 17 September 2020.
The Australian Biosecurity Act 2015 outlines steps that can be taken during this emergency, and it seems that the Director of Human Biosecurity, who is also the Chief Medical Officer, is calling the shots now. This person can direct an individual to comply with a human biosecurity control order, i.e. managing contacts, decontamination, examination, body samples, and vaccination or treatment.
If an individual doesn’t comply with a human biosecurity control order, e.g. vaccination, they are at risk of penalty of five years imprisonment and/or a $63,000 fine.
So if a coronavirus vaccination was available right now, people could be coerced to have it by the Director of Human Biosecurity/Chief Medical Officer. Also keep in mind vaccine manufacturers are likely to have freedom from liability for these vaccine products. So if another ‘human biosecurity emergency’ is declared in future for the coronavirus situation, when and if a vaccine becomes available, individuals could be coerced to have this vaccine product, and the manufacturer would be free from liability if a side effect occurs.
Just let that sink in… I’ve raised this in previous comments, but I’m wondering if readers are taking in the significance of this? Remember, this could also happen in other countries.
Right now in Australia, we are under the power of the Director of Human Biosecurity/Chief Medical Officer – not someone who is an elected individual. There are many unelected individuals in this country who are making decisions affecting all of us in regards to the coronavirus situation, e.g. Chief Health Officers in all the states, and also academics in various disciplines.
I also wonder who initiated the Australian Biosecurity Act 2015, and how this was allowed by politicians, because our rights to bodily autonomy and ‘informed consent’ before a medical intervention have been trashed by this Act.
The situation in Australia is extremely serious, and most people here have no idea…they’re nearly all beguiled by the virus…
