Austria announces possible lockdown for unvaccinated people
The Austrian government has decided to tighten the corona measures for unvaccinated people. If more than 600 intensive care beds are occupied by corona patients, exit restrictions for people without vaccination protection will be introduced in the future, as the government announced in the evening, according to the APA news agency. They are then only allowed to leave their apartments in exceptional cases. According to the information, all who cannot be vaccinated, such as children under twelve years of age, are excluded from this. “We are about to stumble into a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” said Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg, according to the APA. This must be prevented. The Chancellor ruled out a new lockdown for those vaccinated and recovered.
