A draft regulation was announced a few days ago, according to which only traffic restrictions should apply to corona infected people in the future. Accordingly, if you were infected with a mask, you could move freely almost anywhere.
More than 100,000 people would be affected by the end of the quarantine. The number of new infections is currently up to 15,000 per day. Around 1,500 hospital beds are currently occupied by COVID-infected people. According to the current assessment, the health system is not expected to be overloaded.
After the conversation, Barbara Schöbi-Fink, who currently heads the Vorarlberg state government, pointed out that there were “clear voices” for an end to the quarantine. Vorarlberg is also for it. “We have to learn to live with the virus.” She would not consider a quarantine to be irresponsible. Despite stricter measures, the city of Vienna has no better figures than Vorarlberg.
The Upper Austrian ÖVP Governor Thomas Stelzer was also satisfied. “A big step” has been taken in the direction of the paradigm shift he has been demanding for weeks. He is “confident that what is being done in many European countries when dealing with Corona will soon become reality in Austria. Anyone who feels sick stays at home to protect others.” But it is no longer necessary to “lock up at home and lock out of the labor market” those who tested positive, Stelzer reiterated his position.
