“A pre-Christmas period like back then is a long way off,” says Hans Peter Doskozil, summarizing the bleak Corona situation. Burgenland’s head of state is vehemently criticizing the “performance that the federal government is currently doing”. Doskozil: “That has nothing to do with crisis management.” The fact that – a few hours after the Bund-Ländergipfel – a night lockdown for vaccinated people was announced in the ZiB annoys him: “It cannot be that we agree on a course of action and only a few hours later suddenly a night curfew for Vaccinated in the room stands ”.
Because of the chaos during the PCR tests, according to Doskozil, “those affected often have to wait days for results. This can have an impact on the epidemiological situation – and that at the height of the fourth wave. ” Burgenland is now fighting this violent fourth wave and an impending lockdown with its own package of measures.
Doskozil praised a “hero bonus” for the employees of the vaccination routes and contact tracing. “As an appreciation for their months-long, indispensable service, there is a gross bonus of 100 euros for employees who do staff duty and health staff who have direct contact with Covid patients,” announced the country manager. A corresponding promise for health workers has still not been kept at the federal level.
