The Daily Mail reports that anger is growing in Austria after the government imposed a vaccine apartheid on its citizens.
Effective midnight Sunday, Austria’s two million unvaccinated citizens (20% of the country’s population of 8.9 million) are banned from leaving their home other than for work, buying groceries or receiving a vaccine.
The unvaccinated lockdown will last until Nov 24, 2021, when it will be reviewed.
Police are now doing random checks in Austrian streets to ensure that people are vaccinated. Unvaccinated people who are outside their homes for an invalid reason are subject to a fine of 1,450 Euros (US1,660.00).
In an interview with The Telegraph, one unvaccinated Austrian said, “I cannot approve of the division of society into two parts. It is certainly not good for the country. It will have consequences. I am firmly convinced of that,” and another added, “Before Covid, fundamental rights were unconditional.”
In both interviews, the two refused to give their full names, probably over fears of reprisals.
