Aussie TikTok Star & Lockdown Protestor Hospitalised With COVID-19

Jon-Bernard Kairouz, a viral TikTok Star, who was charged after allegedly encouraging and attending a lockdown protest, has been hospitalised with the deadly virus.

Kairouz went viral on TikTok earlier this year for managing to continually correctly guess the COVID-19 numbers in New South Wales, before the daily press conference.

He then proceeded to appear on The Project and various morning shows to discuss his predictions. Eventually, he did stop guessing correctly and moved on to creating different content.

The TikTok star then went viral again, but this time for very different reasons when a video got released of him speaking at the anti-lockdown march in Sydney’s CBD in July. 

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Kairouz said: “For everyone that’s here, small businesses, people that are doing it tough, all we want is freedom.”

He also allegedly referred to himself as the ‘People’s Premier.’ 

Ultimately the TikTok star was charged with one count of encouraging the commission of crimes and two counts of not complying with COVID-19 directions. 

However, The Daily Telegraph, has reported that Kairouz was unable to attend a court hearing on Tuesday to discuss the charges because he is hospitalised with COVID-19. Kairouz’s father is also currently hospitalised with the deadly virus. 

Kairouz’s solicitor, Eidan Havas acted on the TikTok star’s behalf and pleaded not guilty to all counts.
