Australia confiscates residents from consuming alcohol

Australians in lockdown in New South Wales are having their alcohol confiscated by the government in order to protect them against Covid.

Yes, really.

“Residents in apartment blocks locked-down by NSW Health are having their alcohol deliveries policed as part of a policy to limit the number of drinks being consumed each day,” NCA News Wire reported.

Government officials are rummaging through private mail deliveries, confiscating alcohol and telling citizens they can only receive a ration of “six beers or pre-mixed drinks or one bottle of wine.” reports:

Mission Australia’s Common Ground building in Camperdown is the latest building where occupants are subjected to the harsh rules.

Residents of the social housing estate have complained that care packages sent by friends and relatives have been searched before they are delivered.

“They are searching all bags and things coming into the building … They confiscated a series of gifts. So things like bottles of spirits, we weren’t allowed to have those and we still (aren’t),” Common Ground resident Robin Elhaj said.

Residents are allowed to receive a ration of one of the following: six beers or pre-mixed drinks, one bottle of wine, or one 375ml bottle of spirits.

Excess alcohol is being confiscated until lockdown rules are lifted.

Residents can consult with a clinician if they think they need more than the allowed limit.


  1. Yes we understood the health department r takeover of power as a quai military operation was about totalitarianism long ago.

  2. I used to think the Aussies were a tough bunch. Now they are letting a bunch of brain dead females push them around. What happened? This is what happens when you give up your firearms.

  3. They are clueless. Israel, for example, is more than 70% vaxxed and the virus is still wrecking havoc.

    They could have 100% vaxxed and the second they open up the virus is going to spread.

    Sweden had the right idea.

  4. I believe getting drunk is wrong, but if people want to get plastered, it’s not the government’s business to interfere (except in drunk driving, for example). Our freedoms come from God, not the government!
