There’s some very disturbing news coming out of Germany with regard to coronavirus lock downs.
People who break quarantine are reportedly being placed in detention centers and even refugee camps.
Anyone with even a basic knowledge of history knows how bad this looks.
The New York Post reports:
German quarantine breakers to be held in refugee camps, detention centers
Germans who repeatedly refuse to quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19 will be held in detention centers — and even under police guard, according to reports.
Officials in the state of Saxony — which is experiencing one of the worst outbreaks in the European nation — have already approved plans to hold quarantine-breakers in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp, the Telegraph said.
Another state, Brandenburg, also plans to use a section of a refugee camp.
In Schleswig-Holstein, repeat offenders will be kept in a special area in a juvenile detention center, the report said, citing Germany’s Welt newspaper.
The state of Baden-Württemberg has two hospitals with rooms to hold the scofflaws, which will be guarded by police, the report said.
The centers are aimed at detaining only those who continue to break lockdown even after being fined, the report said.
This is unreal.
Did anyone have "Germany will force people into camps" on their 2021 Bingo card?

Maybe Germany could make them wear a badge for easy identification. Possibly a yellow star or something. Just spitballing https://t.co/gRndiRSUU7

Hasn’t this all gone far enough?
