LINZ (dpa-AFX) – Upper Austria will be the first federal state in Austria to introduce a regional lockdown for unvaccinated people from Monday. This was announced by Prime Minister Thomas Stelzer (ÖVP) on Thursday. “The situation is dramatic, which is why we prefer the fifth stage of the federal government’s step-by-step plan and plan a lockdown for unvaccinated people from Monday, provided that the federal government has given the legal green light or the federal government creates the legal basis.” At the same time, preparations were under way to set up emergency quarters with hospital beds, as in 2020. These should be available in rehabilitation facilities and special hospitals.

Upper Austria has a seven-day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants of almost 1,200, which is well above the national average. The vaccination rate is one of the lowest in Austria. The third largest state with 1.5 million inhabitants is governed by a coalition of the ÖVP and the vaccination-critical FPÖ.
