Highlights of the story
- Austria will be the first country in Western Europe to implement full lockout again
- Locking will be imposed for 20 days
- Emergency-like situation in Germany too
The incidence of corona virus is rapidly increasing again around the world. Meanwhile, Austria is once again preparing for a complete shutdown to tackle the new wave of infection. By doing this, Austria will become the first country in Western Europe to implement full lockout again. To avoid this wave, the entire population of Austria should be vaccinated by February.
Locking was introduced in Austria on Monday for those who have not been fully vaccinated. But since then the infection has spread rapidly and set new records. With 991 people per 1 lakh people affected in the last seven days, Austria is the most affected continent.
All of Austria will be locked up for 20 days
At a conference, Austrian President Alexander Schellenberg said that we had failed to persuade people to get vaccinated. He announced that the lock-up would start on Monday and last for 20 days. He said the first vaccination campaign for protection would begin on February 1.
He added: “It is unfortunate that measures like Lockdown have not yet been taken. Many of us do not show solidarity with Corona. I ask for the help of all of you. Maintain a 20-day community break for Christmas. Holidays can be safe.
Two-thirds of Austria’s population is fully vaccinated. This is one of the lowest vaccination rates in Western Europe. Because most people here are skeptical about the vaccine. On the other hand, there is also a partial locking in the Netherlands. Bars and restaurants here will close at 8pm.
Germany is also in a state of emergency
On the other hand, there is no good news from Germany about the Corona. The country is in a state of ’emergency’ due to the growing infection with the corona virus, the head of the disease control organization here said on Friday. We need to use the emergency brake here.
Lothar Weiler, president of the Robert Koch Institute, says routine medical care cannot be guaranteed because hospitals and intensive care wards in some parts of the country are overcrowded.
Willer’s warning came at a time when the German government was considering implementing new regulations across the country. Under this, a full curfew will be imposed on those who have not been vaccinated.
