Fox News host Laura Ingraham during the Ingraham Angle claims New Zealand uses “quarantine camps” for its COVID-19 patients.
According to Ingraham, the “American left and their media poodles” have for a long time held “New Zealand as the model for how to properly deal with a lot of things, including COVID.”
She later added that the “Kiwis have a terrifying new response” to its rising COVID cases.
The “terrifying new response,” according to Ingraham, is what she claims New Zealand’s “quarantine camps.”
The Fox host also used an old video of New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, to support her claims of the country’s “new” action against COVID.
After showing the short clip, Ingraham also made fun of the Prime Minister’s accent.
“No leaving the camp until you’re negative,” the host said in a fake New Zealand accent.
The video clip from Ingraham’s segment is Ardern answering questions on the government’s policy for isolating people returning to New Zealand.
In addition, the Prime Minister shared the video in June, after New Zealand lifted almost all of its COVID-19 restriction.
In June, New Zealand reported for the first time that they’re already virus-free.
NZ Herald said, Ingraham, has spread “misinformation about New Zealand’s response to the covid-19 pandemic.”
The host, it seems, is casting New Zealand’s response as a threat to freedom, the NZ Herald added.
Prime Minister Ardern has just recently won NZ’s election with a landslide victory due to her effective action against COVID-19.
As of writing, New Zealand has only reported 1,949 COVID-19 cases, 25 deaths, and 1,854 recovered patients.
The WHO Recognized New Zealand for its Success Against COVID-19
New Zealand’s positive response to COVID-19 has been recognized globally.
In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) featured the country in a short documentary highlighting its best COVID-19 practices.
Kiwis’ Hilarious Response to Ingraham’s Report
Kiwis have responded hilariously to Ingraham’s claims on New Zealand’s “quarantine camps.”
A Kiwi actress, Pandie Suicide shares her “terrible” experience of staying at one of New Zealand’s “4 star hotel.”
New Zealand has various isolation facilities across the country that include 3 to 5-star hotels.
Melanie Homer, a Kiwi broadcaster, replied to Ingraham’s tweet, saying, it’s actually [the government’s] “plan to keep people who believe this sort of tripe away from our shores forever.”
She added it was so cunning, “you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.”
