South Australia Revokes Lockdown After Revelation One Person Lied to Contact Tracers

South Australia has revoked its draconian lockdown, which banned people from even walking their dogs, after it was revealed that just one person lied to contact tracers.

The lockdown took effect yesterday and banned people from leaving their homes unless for emergency medical reasons or to buy food.

Police even confirmed via Twitter that people who walked their dogs outside would be in violation of the law, prompting a huge backlash.

Now just a day later, the lockdown is set to be revoked after authorities admitted that the one person who sparked the decision had lied to contact tracers.

“South Australia Premier Steven Marshall announced the explosive finding during a Friday press conference, saying that the individual in question purposely misled contact tracers,” reports RT.

“Though he told them he had visited a pizza bar linked to a local outbreak only once, he in fact worked at the establishment and had spent several shifts there during the period in question.”

The government has now acknowledged that the man, who was initially blamed for being a ‘super spreader’, had in fact not been the source of what authorities claimed was a super-infectious strain of the virus.

“Their story didn’t add up. We pursued them. We now know that they lied,” said South Australia Premier Steven Marshall.

Maybe authorities should have confirmed the man’s story before announcing their draconian lockdown? Just a thought.

As of Saturday, the region will now move back into its previous lockdown tier, with many restrictions being lifted again.

Respondents on Twitter slammed the government for imposing the crippling lockdown on the basis of one erroneous case at a pizza place.
