The First Minister of Wales has introduced a fireplace-break lockdown, often known as a circuit breaker.

The nationwide lockdown, often known as a circuit breaker, will start at 6pm on 23 October.

But what precisely is a circuit breaker in Covid phrases?

    So glad, this needs to happen. I don't see any way to control the spread without it. Call it a raging pineapple fish lock down if you like, it needs to be two weeks, and total.

    You are 20 times less likely to die with/from COVID-19, if you don’t have pre-existing adverse health conditions. All these pre-existing adverse health conditions are quite easily capable of being the dominant cause of death in any of these cases.

    Dear REMOVED,
    I want to provide you some very important information. I’m a committee member within the Liberal Party of Canada. I sit within several committee groups but the information I am providing is originating from the Strategic Planning committee (which is steered by the PMO).
    I need to start off by saying that I’m not happy doing this but I have to. As a Canadian and more importantly as a parent who wants a better future not only for my children but for other children as well. The other reason I am doing this is because roughly 30% of the committee members are not pleased with the direction this will take Canada, but our opinions have been ignored and they plan on moving forward toward their goals. They have also made it very clear that nothing will stop the planned outcomes.
    The road map and aim was set out by the PMO and is as follows:

    – Phase in secondary lock down restrictions on a rolling basis, starting with major metropolitan areas first and expanding outward. Expected by November 2020.
    – Rush the acquisition of (or construction of) isolation facilities across every province and territory. Expected by December 2020.
    – Daily new cases of COVID-19 will surge beyond capacity of testing, including increases in COVID related deaths following the same growth curves. Expected by end of November 2020.
    – Complete and total secondary lock down (much stricter than the first and second rolling phase restrictions). Expected by end of December 2020 – early January 2021
    – Reform and expansion of the unemployment program to be transitioned into the universal basic income program. Expected by Q1 2021.
    – Projected COVID-19 mutation and/or co-infection with secondary virus (referred to as COVID-21) leading to a third wave with much higher mortality rate and higher rate of infection. Expected by February 2021.
    – Daily new cases of COVID-21 hospitalizations and COVID-19 and COVID-21 related deaths will exceed medical care facilities capacity. Expected Q1 – Q2 2021.
    – Enhanced lock down restrictions (referred to as Third Lock Down) will be implemented. Full travel restrictions will be imposed (including inter-province and inter-city). Expected Q2 2021.
    – Transitioning of individuals into the universal basic income program. Expected mid Q2 2021.
    – Projected supply chain break downs, inventory shortages, large economic instability. Expected late Q2 2021.
    – Deployment of military personnel into major metropolitan areas as well as all major roadways to establish travel checkpoints. Restrict travel and movement. Provide logistical support to the area. Expected by Q3 2021.

    Along with that provided road map the Strategic Planning committee was asked to design an effective way of transitioning Canadians to meet a unprecedented economic endeavor. One that would change the face of Canada and forever alter the lives of Canadians. What we were told was that in order to offset what was essentially an economic collapse on a international scale, that the federal government was going to offer Canadians a total debt relief.
    This is how it works: the federal government will offer to eliminate all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc) which all funding will be provided
    to Canada by the IMF under what will become known as the World Debt Reset program. In exchange for acceptance of this total debt forgiveness the individual would forfeit ownership of any and all property and assets forever.

    The individual would also have to agree to partake in the COVID-19 and COVID-21 vaccination schedule, which would provide the individual with unrestricted travel and unrestricted living even under a full lock down (through the use of photo identification referred to as Canada’s HealthPass) .
    Committee members asked who would become the owner of the forfeited property and assets in that scenario and what would happen to lenders or financial institutions, we were simply told “the World Debt Reset program will handle all of the details”. Several committee members also questioned what would happen to individuals if they refused to participate in the World Debt Reset program, or the HealthPass, or the vaccination schedule, and the answer we got was very troubling.

    Essentially we were told it was our duty to make sure we came up with a plan to ensure that would never happen.
    We were told it was in the individuals best interest to participate. When several committee members pushed relentlessly to get an answer we were told that those who refused would first live under the lock down restrictions indefinitely.
    And that over a short period of time as more Canadians transitioned into the debt forgiveness program, the ones who refused to participate would be deemed a public safety risk and would be relocated into isolation facilities. Once in those facilities they would be given two options, participate in the debt forgiveness program and be released, or stay indefinitely in the isolation facility under the classification of a serious public health risk and have all their assets seized.
    So as you can imagine after hearing all of this it turned into quite the heated discussion and escalated beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed before. In the end it was implied by the PMO that the whole agenda will move forward no matter who agrees with it or not. That it wont just be Canada but in fact all nations will have similar roadmaps and agendas. That we need to take advantage of the situations before us to promote change on a grander scale for the betterment of everyone. The members who were opposed and ones who brought up key issues that would arise from such a thing were completely ignored. Our opinions and concerns were ignored. We were simply told to just do it.
    All I know is that I don’t like it and I think its going to place Canadians into a dark future.

    I voted the conservatives in, unfortunately. However, with their authoritarian and draconian laws being imposed, using Lockes political philosophy, we should revoke our consent and exercise our right to revolution to replace the incumbent government. "Governments exist by the consent of the people in order to protect the rights of the people and promote the public good, governments that fail to do so can be resisted and replaced with new governments". Covid case numbers or deaths don't matter, regardless of how you see it, the statistics remain lower than many other common virus'. The peoples rights to liberty and freedom matter, and without that, there is no life, except fear mongering, and being forced to stay in your houses, forced to stay off work while the economy plunges under these disgusting tyrants and their media dogs. I'd prefer to live in a dangerous freedom, risk this virus, risk transmitting, risk coming into contact with a transmitter, than a peaceful slavery, fined by the criminals in Westminster for not doing as I'm expected, all whilst a recession is beginning. These tyrants should be dragged into the street and tried for crimes against humanity, and Ill let you imagine the rest of what should happen to them.

    A circuit breaker is where the government and complicit propaganda mouthpiece media lie to you by claiming you will be locked down for 3 weeks, before using manipulated data to justify a contined indefinite lockdown and trampling of your human rights and the rule of law. It's a means of placating the public to prevent mass civil disobedience and overthrow of traitors in power while they continue their banker mandated destruction of the global economy, in order to funnel the citizenry into a draconian global government controlled by international financiers and technocrats, who will redistribute resources to hostile countries. As the centralisation of power is slowly realised, and you starve and die of disease by restriction to medical care you've already been taxed into paying for, those hostile nations will continue to flood into Europe and other white nations to complete the slow genocide of the occident that has been facillitated by the same traitorous politicians and their mass "immigration" (invasion and replacement) policies. Got that?

    The initial idea to lock down was to ensure the NHS wasn't overwhelmed and to slow the initial spread which apparently hasn't/isn't working . Herd immunity was always going to play its part as it does with every other disease. Now we're just prolonging the spread and frankly its not working and never has. There are many scientists that say lock downs don't work to stop the spread even WHO have found this to be true. This is just getting boring now.

    The new world order are doing everything they can in their power to break your spirit. This is why the restrictions, media lies and fear mongering, bit by bit taking away all of your joy and freedom, replacing it with fear, anger and stress. Creating a mentally sick society that is weak and easy to control. You are powerless when your energy is low.
    I will remind you, they are the few and we are awake. They will not destroy our light. We are a powerful force and they know it. Today and every day hold a vision of the world you wish to see, imagine a world of kindness, love, freedom, health!
    Be that vision.. Stand together and do not let them divide us. We are the light and it's time to shine our brightest. ~ Nicola Jane Ivanov
