(ANSA) – ROME, OCTOBER 23 – After the green pass, it’s time for selective lockdowns: the announcement of a confinement plan limited to unvaccinated only in the event of new peaks of Covid-19 infections comes from Austria . “We do not see the pandemic in the rearview mirror, we are instead heading towards an unvaccinated pandemic”, given that “most ICU patients are not vaccinated”, warned the new chancellor Alexander Schallenberg.
A hard line, however, that will only start when the guard threshold of 500 seats occupied in intensive care (25% of those available) is reached, compared to the current 224. At that point, those who have not been immunized will no longer be able to access bars, restaurants, cultural events and even sports and recreational facilities. With 600 seriously hospitalized, the unvaccinated will no longer be able to leave the house except to go to work or for recognized reasons of necessity. “It is not permissible for the health system to be overloaded due to undecided and waiters”, warned the Austrian Chancellor, underlining that “the unvaccinated must be clear that they are not only responsible for their own health, but also that of others”.
The announcement of the Vienna plan comes while the country is still at the first of the five alert levels envisaged, the least serious. But in the last week the infections have increased and from 1 November the compulsory green pass to access the workplace will also be triggered in Austria. (HANDLE).
