Government Bans Two Million Unvaccinated Citizens From Leaving Home

The Austrian government has ordered a nationwide lockdown for unvaccinated people in an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg on Monday confirmed that millions of citizens would be placed into lockdown from tomorrow amid a worrying trend in infections.

 

The lockdown will initially last for ten days and police have been asked to check people outside to make sure they are vaccinated, Mr. Schallenberg said.

 

The move, which will affect about two million people in the country of 8.9million, prohibits unvaccinated individuals from leaving their homes except for basic activities such as working, grocery shopping – or getting vaccinated.

 

It will not apply to children under the age of 12 because they cannot yet officially get vaccinated.

 

It comes after hundreds of Dutch protestors had a water cannon turned on them by police last night after they objected to the partial return of lockdown introduced by The Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

 

Earlier today hundreds of people descended upon the streets of Ballhausplatz in Vienna during an anti-vaccination rally.

 

Protesters held placards in their hands reading ‘no compulsory vaccination’ as they walked through the streets.

 

Unvaccinated people can be fined up to 1,450 euros ($1,660) if they do not adhere to the restrictions.
