The statements of Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein in the ZIB2 on Sunday caused astonishment, especially since he also promised exit restrictions for vaccinated people. A decision should originally be made on Wednesday. However, Chancellor Schallenberg rejected this project. Mückstein was also attacked head-on by Tourism Minister Elisabeth Köstinger. In a conversation with journalists on the fringes of the EU Agricultural Council in Brussels, Köstinger stated that she “did not believe in the words of the Minister of Health at all”.
In any case, Mückstein continues to want to reassess the situation on Wednesday. A spokeswoman said on Tuesday at the APA request. He never spoke of a summit. Due to the “2G rule”, unvaccinated people were excluded from visiting restaurants and leisure facilities even before the “lockdown”. This corresponded to step 4 in the federal government’s step-by-step plan. However, the spokeswoman left it open as to which further measures Mückstein will take if the test should show that the “2G rule” has not had the desired effect. She pointed out that the minister had announced that he would work to convince further measures.
