Conspiracy theorists have gone wild after the New South Wales Chief Health Officer mentioned the 'new world order' in a daily update.
Dr Kerry Chant was speaking yesterday (September 9) about how people will enjoy their freedoms once 70 per cent of the state's population is fully vaccinated.
When discussing contact tracing, she uttered the three words that would cause anyone with a tin foil hat to spit out their Monster energy drink.
"We will be looking at what contract-tracing looks like in the new world order - yes it will be pubs and clubs, and other things, if we have a positive case there [but] our response may be different if we know people are fully vaccinated," she said.
"We're working through a number of those issues, but we will have to reflect and learn."
While loads of people didn't notice, there were a few on social media who were worried this is the beginning of the end.
The New World Order theory differs depending on who you ask, however the general idea is that 'a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian one-world government'.
Under the conspiracy, all sovereign nations would be combined into one globally represented brand and we will all have to bow to one ruler.
Even if it was remotely true, it would be hilarious that the new world order's plan was unveiled by a chief health officer for a state in Australia.
After Dr Chant's slip of the the tongue, 'New World Order' started trending on social media.
The panic became so intense that Twitter had to issue a statement, which said: "Unfounded claims about the 'New World Order' conspiracy theory are [being] shared after an Australian governmental official used the expression during a press conference.
"Fact-checkers have regularly debunked claims connected to the conspiracy theory. The phrase is commonly used to describe times of change or cultural shift," it added.
It certainly didn't stop loads of people bombarding Scott Morrison's live press conference on social media with questions about this supposed new world order.
