Corona numbers remain high in Austria. A decision on a renewed lockdown in Austria is expected to be made by Wednesday.
It wasn’t until December 7 that retailers were allowed to reopen in Austria. Nevertheless, the coming Saturday could already be the last shopping day before Christmas. Because due to the further high infection numbers a renewed Lockdown seems more than conceivable.
The government does not want to commit itself at the moment, observes the numbers, until Wednesday a decision could then fall. Also for the schools.
One indication of this is that Germany, where the figures are much lower than in Austria, will go into such a hard lockdown again on Wednesday.
SP leader Rendi-Wagner brought her own variant into play during ORF’s press hour: if it is not possible to bring the number of new daily infections below 1,000 by the end of this week, she proposes to “put the country into a Christmas lull.” In other words, retailers should remain closed until January 7 – but not until Christmas.
During this time, schools would be closed anyway, and there would also be “many holidays,” according to Rendi-Wagner. In any case, the goal must be to prevent a third lockdown. Once again, the SP leader spoke out against school closures, but in favor of regular tests for teaching staff.
