Incidents of Govt-19 cases record and deaths on the rise Many Central European countries are enforcing strict regulationsAustria, for example, even discusses compulsory immunization or re-control of the entire population.

Countries such as Austria or the Czech Republic, which crossed the first wave with the lowest number of infections and deaths in the spring of 2020 compared to Italy or Spain, are forced to restrict freedom of movement with the public class one year later. The vaccination rate is lower than the EU average.

The vaccine will not be expedited

After months of inactivity in the face of low-dose vaccines against COVID-19, 65% described the government itself as “shameful”, with Austrian officials increasing pressure on those reluctant to vaccinate for two weeks.

The first is to prevent those who have not been vaccinated or who have not been cured from gastronomy, leisure or beauty salons. Since then, since last Monday, only those who have not been vaccinated have been jailed.

In the two weeks that non-vaccinated controls were used, the number of first doses increased by 3.4%, doubling the rate for the previous two weeks.

However, the number of newly vaccinated people is ridiculous compared to the number of citizens already coming in third.

Over the past two days, for example, 65% of all injected vaccines have a third dose, with the first 21% and the second 13%.

Sociologist Bernhard Kittle believes it is still possible to convince some of those who have not been vaccinated by arguments, but at least 30% will not be reduced.

“Imprisonment strengthens their resistance to serious vaccines”Efe Kittel, director of the Austrian Corona Panel Project at the University of Vienna, warns a team of scientists analyzing how the Austrian community is reacting to the epidemic.

With this in mind, the Austrian government will decide tomorrow to extend imprisonment for the entire population, which Salzburg and Upper Austria have already announced, both areas where the vaccination rate is low and the incidence and risk of infections are high. The decline of the health system.

Too late

However, experts believe that all of these reactions will come too late.

“We should have taken all possible steps a week and a half before we could be imprisoned, which means that those who have been vaccinated must also have some restrictions,” he said. Says Thomas Sipionka, Health Policy Analyst at the Institute for Advanced Study.

According to this expert, it is necessary to reduce contacts quickly by 30%, but undoubtedly “makes locking more and more possible when it comes to what action to take.”

The longer it takes, he warns, the more hospital stress and the number of infections will increase, and therefore, the longer and more severe the imprisonment will be.

“Constant renewal of prisons exhausts the obedience of the people and makes all operations less efficient,” says Sibyonka.

Both Czypionka and Kittel doubt the effectiveness of the other strategy being discussed regarding the imposition of the vaccine compulsion.

The first idea is that it will take several months for the percentage of the population to increase with the full form, apart from dividing the community.

Kittal hopes the move will raise the vaccine rate by two percentage points. “There are many who want to pay the fine.”

Many legal experts agree that this measure does not violate the Constitution.

Currently, after months of speculation, the government has announced the need to vaccinate health workers.

Elsewhere in the Central European region, the Czech Republic is considering re-employing all companies that will allow those who have been vaccinated with the Govt-19 vaccine to access bars, restaurants or meetings since next Monday, and test their staff.

In Slovakia, the government has further advanced the requirement that unvaccinated or sick employees take unpaid leave or work from home if the company allows.

In Hungary, the administrator has announced that he will soon make it compulsory for all public servants to be vaccinated, while the College of Physicians has called for the banning of those without Govt certification from entering restaurants or cinemas.
