Austria’s government is planning to implement a lockdown targeting people who are not vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The European nation’s chancellor is holding a meeting to talk about that on Sunday November 14th 2021 .
Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg says the country cannot wait any longer as infections and hospitalizations are rising.
Austria is already requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a recent proof you have recovered from the virus, if you want to enter most places including hotels. The same applies for events where 25 or more people are in attendance.
