“While the numbers are skyrocketing, dozens of people are dying every day and the nursing staff is at the end of their tether, they argue on the open stage, shift the blame and responsibility on to one another,” the red party leader criticized the turquoise-green federal government. “You can’t cope with a pandemic of the century like this,” stressed Rendi-Wagner.
In the federal states of Salzburg and Upper Austria, adequate medical care can no longer be guaranteed. The government’s current measures are obviously too lax to be able to reduce the numbers significantly. In the last few days there has been a disproportionate increase in the corona deaths. A total of 234 corona deaths were recorded in the past seven days. According to Rendi-Wagner, this allows the federal government to recognize that 2G and the lockdown for unvaccinated people are not enough to get the pandemic under control.
According to Rendi-Wagner, the federal government can only significantly reduce the numbers with an immediate nationwide lockdown. “In five federal states there are current incidences of over 1000, so you can see that there is no alternative to a nationwide lockdown,” said Rendi-Wagner.
