Extremely high new Corona infection figures will bring a lockdown for the unvaccinated in Upper Austria next Monday.

Mückstein wants regional lockdown
“The situation is dramatic, so we trigger the fifth stage of the step-by-step plan of the federal government and plan from Monday a lockdown for unvaccinated, provided there is a legal green light from the federal government or the federal government creates the legal basis,” explained Governor Thomas Stelzer (ÖVP). He thus confirmed an online report in the “Kronen Zeitung”.

461 patients in the normal ward and 89 in the intensive care unit, plus a seven-day incidence of 1193, so the “dramatic situation” expressed by Stelzer in figures in his province, which prompted him to take the measure of a regional lockdown. Since Thursday morning, the governor has been in talks with experts. He and his counterpart from Salzburg, LH Wilfried Haslauer (ÖVP), had agreed in a video conference Wednesday evening with Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein (Greens) expert talks for Thursday. The minister had proposed a regional lockdown, both provincial governors were rather skeptical of the request. There will be another video conference with Mückstein on Friday.

“Normal operation in the hospitals no longer possible”.
The decision for the regional lockdown had been recommended by medical experts in advance. The lung specialist at the Kepler University Hospital, Bernd Lamprecht, said shortly before the start of the expert meeting: “We no longer have an insane amount of time”, because “normal operation in the hospitals is no longer possible”. From a medical point of view, he considered a “contact reduction to be sensible.” Upper Austrian Medical Association President Peter Niedermoser pleaded for a “partial lockdown for the unvaccinated ” and demanded that politicians “act quickly. “From the hospitals the loud cry for help of the personnel is to be heard that the intensive care units threatened with constant development the collapse. Therefore, further measures are inevitable,” he pressured.
