From Monday, January 31, 2022, the Austria government has announced that the unvaccinated people in the country would no longer have undergone the lockdown in case they have been infected with the deadly virus.

The government of the country has clarified the reason behind the decision and asserted that from Tuesday, February 1, 2022, mandatory vaccinations against the infection caused by the SARS-CoV-9 has been imposed on the population of Austria.

The government took the decision the last week, and it came into effect on Monday, January 30, 2022.

While announcing the decision on January 26, 2022, the Chancellor of Austria Karl Nehammer asserted that the lockdown for the people who are unvaccinated against the deadly virus caused by the novel coronavirus would end on Monday January 31, 2022. Moreover, he also announced the removal of all other measures of the COVID-19 for unvaccinated. He noted,” The lockdown is efficient when there is a holiday season.

However, measures such as the 10 pm curfew and the people required to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic need to get followed in the country. The measure co-relates to the “2G” rule to get entry at all places in the country, as per Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein.

Moreover, Austria has mandated the vaccination for all the adults of the population on Tuesday, Feburary1, 2022 and became the first nation in Europe to introduce the measure.

So, under the new provision, the citizens who are age 19 or above need to get vaccinated against the COVID-19; otherwise, they will have to impose fines of up to €3,600

However, the people such as pregnant women and others who can’t receive the vaccine have been exempted from the provision.

Further, the number of patients who have been exposed to the novel coronavirus has remained at 2500 cases per 100,000inhabitants, and the cases were recorded on Sunday evening.

As per the data, the country has a lower rate of vaccination against the novel coronavirus.
