About 65 percent of the Central European nation’s population is jabbed with the poison, according to government data, more and more of them are showing up in hospitals with many health complications since the jab and the number continues to rise. Under the measures revealed on Sunday, unjabbed people are ordered to stay at home except for limited reasons.
The rules, the government said, will be enforced by police officers who will be out on the streets carrying out spot-checks on people who are in public. Unjabbed people are already excluded from entertainment venues, bars, restaurants, and similar venues and businesses.
“We are not taking this step lightly but it is necessary,” Schallenberg told a news conference announcing the new measures.
Schallenberg admitted that the government essentially “told one-third of the population: you will not leave your apartment any more apart from for certain reasons. That is a massive reduction in contacts between the jabbed and the unjabbed.”
Now, unjabbed people can only leave their homes for a limited number of reasons like going to work or shopping for essentials. It’s not clear how that would be enforced. Austria’s lockdown does not apply to the under-12s.
On Friday, Schallenberg alleged that the country’s COVID-19 jabs are “shamefully low” and indicated the government should give the “green light” for the sweeping restrictions over the weekend.
