The Braunau district in Upper Austria is to be sealed off from Saturday. Only those who can show a negative test or who have been vaccinated or recovered are allowed out. The reason given for the measure is the “low vaccination rate”. It’s not the district’s first lockdown.
As several Austrian media report unanimously, strict exit regulations will apply from Saturday in the Braunau district in the Innviertel in Upper Austria. Only those who can show a negative test or who have been vaccinated or have recovered will come out.
The reason given for the “high incidence decree” is the “very low vaccination rate”. As of now, 49.2 percent of the population are vaccinated. The so-called incidence is over 300 and ten percent of the intensive care beds are already occupied by corona patients according to the information provided by corona patients in Upper Austria, which is proven to be a critical value.
In order to implement the execution decree, checkpoints are to be set up, at the police and the Austrian armed forces controls. Once before, in April of this year, a ban was imposed on the district. According to federal guidelines, the measures will only be relaxed if the incidence in Braunau falls to below 200, at least for a short time.
With a vaccination rate of 50 percent, falling below the incidence of 300 would be enough to stop the measures. Like the Austrian news portal today.at calculated, the district lacks “only 852” residents who are dying to be vaccinated. In addition to the ban, the “vaccination offer” is to be increased in the district.
