Austria has imposed certain restrictions that apply to unvaccinated people below 12 years.
The Chancellor of Austria, Alexander Schallenberg, announced lockdown measures for those not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The cases have been surging recently and putting strain on intensive-care units. Almost 65 percent of the population is fully immunized in Austria, and many are skeptical about getting the jab.
The interior minister has said spot checks will be carried out by the police and warned that they would collect fines from not vaccinated people. The few unvaccinated people will only be allowed to shop for essential items and banned from entering bars, cafes, hotels, and theaters.
