Vienna. Minister of Economics Margarete Schramböck explained that she could “not rule out a lockdown” because she had “no crystal ball”. “Österreich” Newspaper reports that FPÖ and part of NEOS see a quick “lockdown” would be implemented again in Austria. Schramböck admittedly told the truth: the measures will depend on the further development. Unlike Lombardy, for example, Austria never had a real lockdown – i.e. a mass quarantine.
Admittedly, there were “initial restrictions” for this. These – in the new law it is regulated that one may go out then only to the work, to the physician, for shopping or for a walk – could give it with further rising new infection rates.
Health Minister Rudolf anschober said that if Covid cases rise to 2,000 per day, the possibility of the implementation of “initial restrictions” would be imminent. However, this time one could follow the German rule which allows the meeting of persons who are not living in the same household.
On the other hand, business should remain open, as no major clusters have appeared in the trade so far.
Events would have to be reduced to a minimum. Should there be a real exponential growth, plus 20 – 30 percent every few days, they would have to be stopped altogether.
But a partial lockdown would only occur if the situation would be threatening.
