BOLZANO, 15 NOV – In Austria, a tough lockdown has been in force since midnight for the unvaccinated. About two million non-immunized Austrians can now leave their homes alone for work, basic necessities and physical activity. The government announces tight controls with fines of 500 euros for citizens and 3,600 euros for exhibitors. The restrictions do not include children under 12, pregnant women and those who cannot get vaccinated. Pupils who participate in mass screening in schools are also exempted. Those who receive the first dose by December 6 and are in possession of a negative PCR swab for 48 hours ‘leave’ the lockdown. For the nightlife in Vienna it is no longer enough to just be vaccinated, but you also need a PCR test. The government is divided on further measures to curb the fourth wave of coronavirus in Austria, which currently has an incidence of 848. The curfew also for vaccinated people proposed by Health Minister Wolfgang Mueckstein has been, at least for the moment, rejected by the Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg. (HANDLE).
