U.S. CDC Has Developed Plans for COVID-19 “Concentration Camps” to Imprison Americans



The Response to a Virus only Slightly more Deadly than Seasonal Flu is Taking on Twilight Zone Levels of Insanity

   A paper published by the U.S. CDC in July, 2020 outlines plans and ideas for developing “concentration camp” style containment facilities for those who are at high risk for catching COVID-19, but are not yet infected.

   The paper, entitled; “Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings1 camouflages the term “concentration camp” in the more benign sounding “green zone.”

   According to the CDC document, the Shielding Approach was inspired by a paper authored by C. Fava from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

   The CDC document describes three types of camp settings where so-called “high risk” individuals would essentially be imprisoned for the duration of the pandemic.  These veritable prisons, called “green zones” would be established at a graduated level from Household Level, to Neighborhood Level and Camp/Sector Level.

   The CDC classifies “high risk” individuals for the purposes of interment in a green zone camp facility as, “older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions [who are] at a higher risk for severe illness for COVID-19.”  The CDC says their shielding approach “suggests physically separating high-risk individuals from the general population to prioritize the use of the limited available resources and avoid implementing long-term containment measures among the general population.”   What this means is that to avoid locking down the entire society, the “higher risk” individuals would need to be forcefully quarantined even if they’re not infected with COVID-19, in order to “protect” them from catching it.

   The three levels of concentration camp “green zones” start at the Household level.  The CDC envisions it as a “specific room/area designated for high-risk individuals who are physically isolated from other household members.”

   Moving to the next level is the “Neighborhood Level” green zone which the CDC says could be a “designated shelter/group of shelters (max 5-10 households) within a small camp or area where high-risk members are grouped together.”  The CDC envisions using peoples’ homes for this camp-level green zone by stating, “Neighbors ‘swap’ households to accommodate high-risk individuals.”

   At the advanced level green zone, the CDC has the Camp/Sector Level facility which it describes as “A group of shelters such as schools, community buildings within a camp/sector (max 50 high risk individuals per single green zone) where high-risk individuals are physically isolated together.

   In order to police the green zone prisons, and make sure nobody is entering or leaving without authorization from the yet undefined bureaucracy that would necessarily be in charge of its administration, the CDC says, “It may be necessary to assign someone within the green zone, if feasible, to minimize movement in/out of green zones.”

   What the pandemic has taught governments around the world thus far is that groups of high-risk individuals warehoused in containment facilities like nursing homes actually increases the spread of COVID-19 among that population and subsequent deaths among those populations as well.  The CDC’s “shielding approach” seems to copy the nursing home model that has suffered extensively under the COVID-19 outbreak thus far.

   The CDC gives an open-ended timeline for the duration of a stay for prisoners interred in a green zone.  The document says to “Plan for an extended duration of implementation time, at least 6 months.”

   The CDC describes the scenarios under which a green zone concentration camp would remain in effect as “until one of the following circumstances arises: (i) sufficient hospitalization capacity is established; (ii) effective vaccine or therapeutic options become widely available; or (iii) the COVID-19 epidemic affecting the populations subsides.”

   The problem with these timeline end points is that the perceived COVID-19 outbreak is being throttled forward at an unprecedented rate by the use of highly sensitive and over-exaggerated PCR testing - which is riddled with false-positives and “positive” case designations in people who were infected weeks or months previously but still have non-infectious viral fragments in their respiratory tract that haven’t been flushed out of their body yet.  Continuing to use PCR tests in this way will extend the pandemic perpetually into the future and thus a 6 month stay in a green zone concentration camp could subtly turn into imprisonment for years.

   The CDC also admits there will likely be mental health issues from such forced imprisonment by stating, “this shielding approach may have an important psychological impact and may lead to significant emotional distress, exacerbate existing mental illness or contribute to anxiety, depression, helplessness, grief, substance abuse, or thoughts of suicide among those who are separated or have been left behind.”

  With all of this said, the CDC admits the whole idea may be utterly useless by stating, “there is no empirical evidence whether this approach will increase, decrease, or have no effect on morbidity and mortality during the COVID-19 epidemic in various humanitarian settings.”

   The CDC acknowledges arbitrarily imprisoning people either in their homes, or in stand-alone concentration camps could be a problem.  The CDC document states, “Even with community involvement, there may be a risk of stigmatization.  Isolation/separation from family members, loss of freedom and personal interactions may require additional psychosocial support structures/systems.”

   To that end, the CDC’s additional support structures for their green zone concentration camps appear to be loosely modeled on the U.S. Army’s Military Police Internment/Resettlement Operations Manual.2

   By using family members or neighbors at the lower echelon of interment, the CDC is taking a page out of that U.S. Army Field Manual which dedicates its Chapter 5 to “Civilian Internees.”  The manual states that by using fellow inmates to regulate each other at the camp level, “minimizes the impression that Civilian Internees are prisoners under the control of a foreign government and allows them to feel a sense of control over their lives.”

   For extended stays, the CDC may employ green zone internees at prison jobs using the U.S. Army Regulation 210-35: Civilian Inmate Labor Program as a guide. 

   While these green zone CDC concentration camps are currently in the concept phase, the U.S. military has already crafted the logistics and framework for similar civilian internment camps that the CDC can simply borrow and adapt to deal with a virus that is now known to have an Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) just a little higher than the normal, seasonal flu.  Current data puts the average IFR for COVID-19 globally at just 0.2%
