Tens of thousands of people protested in Vienna on Saturday against coronavirus restrictions a day after Austria’s government announced new measures.
With daily infections still setting records even after a lockdown was imposed on the unvaccinated this week, the government said on Nov. 19, it would reintroduce a stricter lockdown on Nov. 22, and vaccines would be made compulsory on Feb. 1 next year.
Approximately 66% of Austria’s population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, one of the lowest rates in western Europe. Many Austrians are skeptical about vaccines. By mid-afternoon, the crowds had reached roughly 35,000 people, according to the police.
