Rumors of an imminent Austria-wide lockdown were denied today by the Chancellery: Among other things, it was spread via Whatsapp – without naming sources – that a lockdown with closed bars and nightly exit restrictions would apply from November 17, 2021. These claims “are false and unfounded”, stressed the Chancellery.
Federal Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg (ÖVP) had declared last Friday that they did not want a lockdown for “protected” people, including those vaccinated against corona.
Lockdown rumor “false” from November 17th
The government’s step-by-step plan provides for exit restrictions for unvaccinated people with an intensive care bed occupancy of 600 or more. On Monday, 377 people were cared for in intensive care units because of Covid-19. The government hopes that the permanent 2-G rule will allow far more people to be vaccinated than previous areas.
