Austria to impose lockdown on unvaccinated from Monday

Vienna Austria

CNN reports that Austria is set to implement lockdown measures for those not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 from Monday according to Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg.

With  65% of Austria’s population being fully vaccinated (one of the lower rates in the European Union) against corona virus ,these lockdown measures are taken to curb a recent spike in the spread of the disease. With the new measures announced Sunday, the unvaccinated are ordered to stay home except for a few limited exceptions.

The measures will be policed by officers carrying out regular spot checks on those individuals who are out and about in public.

    Medical apartheid… using this bs as an excuse to gain extreme control over humanity.

    Until the masses stop their sheep behaviour and stand up to put these governmental tyrants in check, humanity is doomed!

      I truly agree with your comments but I saw this coming. Politicians are inclined to be excessive. You give them a square foot and they take an acre. The biggest problem is us, the people. We are sheep-like. We keep silent, go along with the butchers to our own demise.

    Not surprising from the birthplace of the man who put millions into concentration camps and segregated ghettos where they hard to wear armbands to go out in public. All of this nonsense is evil centuries old. They are just using the current crisis as an excuse. They have already conceded that lockdowns don’t work and that the vaccine cannot stop transmission so there is really no excuse for doing this other than to control people.

      All Hitler related comparisons on this matter are an absolute disgrace. The rest of the comment is just plain nonsense.

    Brazilian President tells WHO Director “People are Dying” After COVID Shots

    ADMIN: Context helps to better inform the remark. He was referring to deaths from COVID-19 infection for some who had received two vaccination shots. In response, the WHO director offered that there will be some deaths due to comorbidities and or other underlying health problems. Video of conversation can be found here:

      He is coming soon. Get ready. Imagine no free will to man. Yet our Father gave us free will. Mandatory – infringing on a person’s human rights. Studied what to impose restrictions on humans mind yes world wide. Testing the mind control to bring the real thing. Well, well don’t be afraid. Jehovah is watching. Regardless though Jehovah is in control. Trust in God with all of your heart, mind and do not worry. Fear is tormenting so relax, sit back and lean on Jehovah. These things too shall pass.

      DNO please let my comment roll. Cat ain’t take my tongue. Give me my little lavie pour parler. Let Jehovah be praised in all the earth.

        He is coming soon. what does soon mean. souls have been saying he is coming for so long now. if it were so that he was coming soon would this moment not be the perfect moment. and when he does would you know. does your scripture not say that he will come as a thief in the night. well this is the darkest hour and the waiting is over your are just not aware of it..

        He will not come in a way that human beings think or expect because of their limited perception of creation. the highest on high does not need pump and show. those whos intellects are consumed with the lies of the world would not know if the one who is the great theif and comforter of hearts was right infront of them..

    Utter nonsense!!! These servants ie the governments are deliberately provoking their employers ie THE PEOPLE.

    Austria with its 65% fully vaccinated population is ranked as having one of the lowest Covid vaccination rates in the EU. A number of EU countries currently have populations with fully vaccinated rates above 65% yet are currently experiencing record new Covid rates on par & in some instances even higher than when 0% of their populations were vaccinated against Covid.

    Where is this so-called herd immunity for Covid? Wasn’t the obsession to get full Covid vaccination rates above 70% in the population so life can get back to normal?

    The Netherlands with its 84% fully vaccinated population has now gone back under a partial lockdown. Denmark with 88.3% full vaccination is considering reintroducing restrictions. Iceland has reintroduced some measures despite their 76.3% rate.

    I ask again – Where is this much heralded “herd immunity” for Covid? 8-O 8-O 8-O

      a) things have changed with delta variant. It causes more infections so you need a higher vaccination rate. b) your numbers are wrong, Netherlands have a vaccination rate of 73%.

      • Why Why ???????????
        November 16, 2021

        So it was always the delta variant. But with vaccination, changes include a higher rate of infection. And the deaths are they covid related? Covid with a 99.9%. recovery. NB most of the countries with a higher rate of vaccination are seeing new surges. Why is youtube putting down documentaries etc., especially with those vaccinated who have experienced adverse effects and letting people know of the adverse effects of the vaccine? So persons must only listen to WHO, CDC, USA, etc.? A coin has two sides. Ain’t it? Vaccines of before did not help spread nor they ever got an attack. They never had to take follow-up boosters.

        Now DNO let my comment roll. Hope you are not like Youtube. Cela pas vaccine. Doctor kill & cure qui la. You still get it, you still spread it, and to add insult to injury, you will need boosters. ……………. Why frighten persons to take a vaccine? Fright ka chway monde avant l’heure. Now we need statistics – Death/adverse of…

        @Rick – a) This statement of yours is basically pseudoscience clothed with rank speculation and irrational reasoning. You do not understand what you have typed out.

        b) Regarding the Netherlands vaccination rate, please refer to the following link from the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment – an independent research institute of the Netherlands Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport:

        (NB: Check the first paragraph in the link above under the title: Vaccination figures: 8 to 14 November 2021)
