Austria imposes a lockdown on its general population starting Monday

Measures for the Austrian population are tightened. The Government of Austria today approved a general lockdown starting Monday, after the measures taken so far –including restrictions on movement of the unvaccinated– have not stopped the increase in infections.

“Citizens will have to assume new restrictions for 20 days because there were too many who have been unsupportive. I ask you to follow the measures and to reduce the contacts “declared Federal Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg, announcing the confinement that will last for 20 days.

The infection rate is among the highest on the continent, with almost a thousand cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
