NY Bill Looks To Have Jurisdiction to Imprison Public Health Threats

In the Spring of last year, Zimbabwe (above) arrested over 100,000 people due to government mandated COVID regulations.

New York is looking to be able to have the same jurisdiction with people in 2021, but in this case, they need not to have violated COVID distancing ordinances, they need to just be sick with COVID or any other disease.

The bill, titled A416, was introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Nick Perry and, “relates to the removal of cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases who are potentially dangerous to the public health.”

The bill is active, currently in the Assembly Health committee.
