In this time, unfortunately so marked by COVID 19, there are restriction for all people who are not going to get vaccinated. It is the same in all European countries.
In the last article we showed you what is happening in Italy with all the restrictions due to Green Pass and Super Green Pass and in this article we fly to North and see how Austria and Germany are fighting against pandemic and how this situation is getting harder and harder due to numerous restrictions that (no vaccinated) people are forced to suffer.
In Austria, although Covid 19 infections have slightly decreased, the Austrian Government decided to impose new restrictions, because hospitalisations are quickly increasing. Austrian citizens must to show their Green Pass (Covid vaccination certificate), their healing Certificate (for at least six months) or a PCR negative test, because antigenic tests are no longer accepted.
We say more: due to increased hospitalizations, Austria from 22 November to 13 December is in lock-down. Cultural, leisure activities and accomodation sector (hotels, restaurants, etc) are currently closed and so all tourist trips to Austria are suspended and Austrian citizens have to wait for the new rules, after December 13.
In Austria the citizens who are not going to be vaccinated for different reasons, are excluded from any social activity. They can no longer see their friends and relatives in bars, restaurants, cinemas, theatres and the only activity they can do is their work, although many companies adopted the smart working.
A real prison and the situation is not improving, because with the cold season, the virus circulates more easily.
That’s not all: the Austrian Government took very hard measures against all those who do not want to be vaccinated by February: as a matter of fact we are speaking of fines up to 7200 euros.
If it is possible, Germany is in an even worse situation, because in this country there are plenty of infections and deaths and the iron fist against not vaccinated people will be even worse, because for them (and only for them) there is a lock-down.
Furthermore, in Germany the immunization shortly becomes reality: the bill is already ready and according to the Government it will be voted by the majority of the Members and therefore since February in Germany is more likely that citizens will be obliged to be vaccinated
So, if an Austrian or German citizen does not want to be vaccinated very hard times are ahead of him, because restrictions for not vaccinated people will not end so easily and it is probably that they will increase again.
For people who are not vaccinated life will change dramatically and there will be only restrictions.
