Germany is preparing to follow the example of Austria by imposing new lockdown measures that will exclusively apply to the unvaccinated.
As we highlighted yesterday, Austrian authorities are enforcing the new measures by having police patrol supermarkets and highways, stopping people and checking their vaccination status.
Similar scenes could now be about to unfold in neighboring Germany.
The Guardian reports that the COVID situation in the country is worse now than it was before the vaccine was introduced.
“On Tuesday the country’s disease control agency, the Robert Koch Institute, recorded a seven-day incidence rate of 312 cases per 100,000 people, with several areas at more than 1,000. A year ago, before the vaccine was introduced, the rate stood at 139,” reports the newspaper.
While “not as stringent” as the measures imposed on unjabbed Austrians, several states are now moving to exclude the unvaccinated from numerous venues.
