Austria to End Lockdown for Unvaccinated Monday, Nehammer Says

Austria will end a lockdown for unvaccinated people from Jan. 31 after the rate of infected people requiring hospitalization remained low during the latest wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

The easing measure, announced by Chancellor Karl Nehammer, coincides with the introduction of mandatory vaccinations next month, with imposition of fines on dissenters beginning in mid-March.
