TikToker, who caught Covid and pretended that NSW’s daily cases are known, travels to the US and strikes Australia

The TikToker, who pretended to predict New South Wales lockdown case numbers and led an anti-lockdown rally before contracting the virus, traveled to America to ask what locals think of Australia’s Covid policy .

Jon-Bernard Kairouz, a self-proclaimed comedian from Sydney’s west, traveled to the US after the fall of international borders and posted a series of videos on social media asking Texans how Australia was handling the pandemic.

“In and outside of the lockdown, nobody is free there. I wouldn’t go there and I think anyone who can should go to hell, ”one American told Kairouz.

The TikToker rose to fame during Sydney’s three-month lockdown and correctly estimated the number of new cases each day.

It turned out that he had obtained the numbers from a source within NSW Health, which was then set up after repeated information leaks from the department’s staff.

Kairouz was then notoriously spotted at the 3,000-strong anti-lockdown rally that marched through Sydney’s CBD on July 24, talking to those in attendance over a microphone and encouraging them to continue fighting against government mandates.

The self-proclaimed “people’s premier” is charged with failing to comply with a previously announced order in two cases (Covid-19) and for encouraging the commission of a crime. He’ll have to go to court this year.

After the protest, he infected himself with Covid and fought for his life in the hospital with the virus while his father was admitted to the intensive care unit.

The “comedian” was particularly concerned with the daily coverage of Covid cases and asked Texans on the street if they knew how many infections were recorded in their state that day.

“We count our cases every day in Australia, do you know how many cases there were in Texas today? he was examining a local.

After saying no, Kairouz said, ‘I didn’t think many would know, it seems like nobody here cares.’

AMERICA VS AUSTRALIA: COVID IN NUMBERS

Cases:

Australia: 547,162

USA: 56,131,187

Texas: 4,767,804

Deaths:

Australia: 2,202

USA: 826,885

Texas: 76,201

Other Americans, including some wearing gun-covered shirts, echoed the idea that Australia is currently under “oppressive leadership” and said they must recapture their country.

“It is not right, people have to be able to choose,” replied one Texan.

“It’s not good, not good at all, man. You have to take it back, ”said another.

Commentators were less receptive to comments from Kairouz and his American allies, saying they preferred to live with bans than with legal gun possession.

“Nobody is free” = literally wearing a gun shirt. I would rather be locked up than fear a shootout when I shop or go to school, ”raged one TikTok user.

“Take their gun-riddled land and tell them to piss off,” wrote another.

Texas alone recorded 164,902 new Covid infections on Monday, with the state currently seeing that 22 percent of the tests give a positive result.

Australia posted a record total of 47,799 on Tuesday.

Texas has 29 million people while Australia has just under 26 million people, which means the US state has recorded 115,000 more cases than Australia, which has a slightly higher population.
