So far, Styria has received 10,000 vaccine doses or in stock. In the first phase, the vaccination of residents and staff of nursing homes will begin as planned. In the next ten days you get another 8,000 doses or 4,500 doses thereafter. That the new virus variant from Great Britain has reached Austria gives cause for concern, although he does not want to dramatize, said the current chairman of the governor’s conference.
When asked whether he could estimate how long it would take before there was noticeable relief in Austria, Schützenhöfer replied: “If Minister Rudolf Anschober says that we have three or four hard months ahead of us, then I would agree. ” But the question remains how to deal with the threat. “Hand washing, distance, protective face mask”, the LH never tire of repeating. The more you do not adhere to this or do not allow yourself to be tested, the greater the risk of excessive numbers of infections. “Unfortunately, there is no alternative to the measures,” said the governor to the APA. Regarding the question of the assessment of the economic situation, the LH said that the industry was, for example, already further compared to the first lockdown, that a very good order situation was reported. It is of course problematic in the areas of trade, travel agencies and tourism.
