There is currently intensive advice in expert and government circles about relaxing the quarantine rules analogous to France and Germany because of the Omikron variant. But will there be another lockdown?
This question is still open, but a request to speak from the “National Covid Crisis Coordination” (Gecko) now gives hope. The infectiologist Herwig Kollaritsch said in a statement to “heute.at”: The government has not yet asked the experts a single question about a lockdown.
On the bank holiday tomorrow, the federal government will consult with the federal states and experts on the current corona situation. The more contagious variant Omikron is now spreading rapidly in this country too. Gecko focuses on the protection of critical infrastructure and wants to present proposals at the summit so that these vital areas can continue to run.
