The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chartered a plane to Kiribati to take home 54 of their citizens. Many of the travelers were missionaries who had left Kiribati before the country closed the border. A requirement to return? They had to be fully vaccinated.
36 out 54 passengers aboard the chartered flight tested positive after being fully vaccinated and tested negative three times before taking off from Fiji for Kiribati. They had also been in pre-departure quarantine for two weeks before the flight and were quarantined again when they reached the island of 122,000 according to the AP.
This was also the first international flight allowed into the remote island nation.
They managed to not have a single case of Covid until Jan. 19, 2022. They closed down their borders early and kept them closed until last week.
The government made an announcement on Facebook that all of the passengers from the flight are being monitored and made sure to mention that all on board were fully vaccinated.
As of January 28, there are 181 confirmed Covid cases and no deaths.
The island nation was quick to declare a state of disaster and put Coid restrictions in place. These restrictions include lockdowns, curfews, and quarantine sites. Only 33% of the citizens are fully vaccinated.
Residents will not be permitted to leave their houses during the lockdown except for essential services. Their shopping, for essential items only, will be between 6 Am and 2 PM.
This is not the only remote location with very strict rules and guidelines to be affected by Covid. Last month the Princess Elisabeth Polar Station had an outbreak despite their strict protocols. Those working at the Princess Elisabeth Polar Station were also fully vaccinated, took multiple PCR tests, and were quarantined before arriving at the research facility. Yet they still had an outbreak.
The office of President Taneti Maamau stated on Facebook, “The only way that we can fight this virus is through complete vaccination. The public is urged to complete their vaccination doses in order to protect themselves and families.”
We recently reported on Project Salus which is an AI-powered data analysis program from the DoD. The data from this program has shown that Anthony Fauci and the government have been hiding deaths and injuries from the covid vaccine that they have been trying to mandate in the United States.
