This is insane.
Australia’s second-most populous state, Victoria, has a new home quarantine tracking program that randomly calls those quarantining at home and requests a selfie from them within five minutes in order to track their location.
If they don’t respond within five minutes the authorities will be alerted and will be knocking on their door.
Victoria’s Health Minister Martin Foley said the new app will “add to the tools as to how our quarantining system can make sure that people are where they’re meant to be when they’re meant to be.”
Make no mistake. This is a trial run. If people submit, it will be expanded throughout Australia and then find its way to our shores.
Government doesn’t limit itself. People have to do that.
