An American Fox News presenter has beaten Jacinda Ardern until they agreed to take a coronavirus test in an attack on New Zealand’s policy of keeping people in quarantine hotels.
Laura Ingraham, host of the conservative news program The Ingraham Angle, claimed on Wednesday that New Zealand’s prime minister had locked travelers in “quarantine camps”.
Ingraham, 57, used a Facebook live clip from Ms. Ardern to answer questions about quarantine hotel procedures in June to justify her claims.
“They throw people into quarantine camps,” she told the audience.

American Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham (pictured above) criticized the response to the New Zealand coronavirus pandemic in a bizarre rant on The Ingraham Angle on Wednesday
Ingraham claimed that the New Zealand government and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern (pictured above) had “thrown people into quarantine camps” to fight the spread of the virus
‘The American left and its media poodles have long viewed New Zealand as a role model for dealing properly with many things, including COVID.
“But anyone who loves freedom should take note as the kiwis have a terrifying new reaction to rising COVID case numbers,” said Ingraham.
The four-month-old Facebook live clip showed Ms. Ardern explaining that all hotel quarantine guests must remain in isolation until they return a negative test.
“If someone in our facilities refuses to be tested, they have to stay. So that you cannot leave after 14 days, you have to stay another 14 days.
“Either get your tests done and make sure you’re cleared, or we’ll keep you at the facility longer,” said Ms. Ardern.
The Prime Minister said this was a “good incentive” and stated that “most people will look at this and say” I’ll take the test “.
Ingraham then put a New Zealand accent to mock Ms. Ardern’s video clip.

“Don’t leave camp until you’re negative,” said the Fox News host.
New Zealand has a quarantine system similar to Australia, which requires travelers returning from overseas to be isolated in a designated hotel for 14 days.
Ingraham used the June 29 clip to claim New Zealand was reacting to the current “rising COVID case numbers”.
New Zealand has recorded 1,593 cases of Covid-19 and 25 deaths; a rate of 388 cases and five deaths per million population.
That equates to 1,076 cases and 35 deaths per million in Australia and 27,000 cases and 703 deaths per million in the United States.
New Zealand, which last had a community broadcast on October 23, currently has 70 active cases and reported 6 new hotel quarantine cases on Thursday.
New Zealand had previously experienced a 102-day series of zero community broadcasts but struggled with outbreaks in August and September.
New Zealand was declared coronavirus-free in June after a strict national lockdown and has seen small outbreaks since then (coronavirus testing in Auckland, pictured above).
