Platter referred to the resolutions of the Governors’ Conference, of which he is currently chairman, at the Achensee on November 19. There, state governors and the government signed that it would open again from January 13th and that the lockdown would end for those who had been vaccinated. “We promised that.” If you only open trade now, the population will no longer participate. “If we keep doing this, we will also have the vaccinated on the street because they cannot rely on the government. I want what has been agreed to be kept ”, so Platter.
The opening should be accompanied by clear security precautions and the lockdown for unvaccinated people should continue. There should be no night gastronomy, fixed assigned seats and mask compulsory. There should be “clear restrictions”, but “if we agree something and the numbers point in the right direction, then you have to adhere to that.”
Well-founded that skiing is possible Platter with the fact that it is important for people to be able to ventilate. “You have to give people certain freedoms.” It takes a trade-off between maintaining medical care and the fact of being human. Politicians should not ignore the psyche of people, locking up also causes violence, pointed out Platter on the extremely high number of feminicides. He doesn’t necessarily want to connect that, “but we have to be damn careful what that does to people’s psyche.” Not being allowed to go to the restaurant over Christmas, “that doesn’t work”, like that Platter.
With his opinion, the governor contradicts both the mayor of Vienna, Ludwig, and vice-chancellor Kogler. The latter said in the “Kurier” (Sunday edition): “The decision will be made on Wednesday, where we will hear the various experts. According to my prognosis, opening steps will be possible. But we won’t be able to unlock everything overnight. There will have to be more restrictions to protect our health. ” (APA / red)
