BERLIN – The government of Vienna officially launched Full insurance for the unvaccinated, is already in force in Upper Austria and Salzburg, throughout the country. The measure – which concerns about 2 million of the 8.9 million Austrians – was announced today, Sunday, November 14, at the end of a meeting between the federal executive and Lnder prime ministers. It will go into effect on Monday 15 November and will last at least 10 days.
Anyone over the age of 12 and not fully immunized will only be able to come out To go to work, shop or walk As explained by Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg.
He said we need to raise the rate of vaccinations, shamefully low.
The inspections will be random: We are not a police state and we cannot and do not want to check every street corner, Schallenberg said, and today assured that police inspections will be meticulous.
Since last Monday, In Austria, the 2G rule is in effect (Entry only if vaccinated or cured) For tourists wishing to enter the country, events and sports.
The situation is still very dangerous. Yesterday there were 13,152 new infections, nearly 1,500 more in one day. But the pace of new cases is hell: 775 per 100,000 residents per week, three times that of Germany. (The situation is also very heavy in neighboring South Tyrol, as shown here).
Austria has One of the lowest vaccination rates in EuropeOnly 65% of the population received a double dose, while 67.8% received at least one dose. The far-right Freedom Party, the third party in Parliament, is fanning the flames of skepticism about vaccines.
According to information from the ORF TV network, aA pilot project to vaccinate children between 5 and 11 years. This will be limited to Vienna and affect 200 pups per day, who will be given a single dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
Rules already in place
Even today, in the base For the rules launched a few days ago that are described here, in fact, it was already forbidden to enter and consume in restaurants, bars and in typical konditorei (pastry shops), to stay in all kinds of accommodation facilities, to enter the nightlife bubbles and in places where there were services for the care of the person (hairdressers, beauticians, barbers, massage centers). The same rule also applies to cultural and sporting events in which 25 or more people participate, as well as to ski lifts.
The basic principle that 3G restrictions become 2G: Only people who have been vaccinated or fully recovered can access all places they could previously have entered even with a negative Covid test taken in the past 24 hours. 3G actually means Vaccinated, recovered, or tested (vaccinated, treated or tested), while 2G just means Vaccinate, recover (vaccinated or treated) and therefore a more stringent standard.
This is the biggest difference compared to Italy: while in our country, so far, the green lane can also be obtained with a rapid test for Covid (which has a very large number of false negatives), in Austria it is not. In fact, the masked vaccination obligation is offered.
As of December 6, the duration of green lane: varr for nine months after the second vaccination, and can only be extended with the third dose (in Italy, at the moment, it remains valid for 12 months even without the third dose, even if The government could enact a measure similar to the Austrian one in December Looking at the data – published by the Higher Institute of Health – on A decrease in the effectiveness of the vaccine after six months).
