On Sunday, Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced that the Austrian government was implementing a nationwide lockdown for unvaccinated individuals that would restrict anyone who has not taken the jab from leaving their homes for almost any reason.
Over 2 million Austrians were affected by the mandate, which kicked in at midnight last night. If any of them are caught outside their homes – for pretty much anything other than going to work or grocery shopping – they will face heavy fines of up to 3,600 Euros for each violation, which is equivalent to about $4,100.
Austria is the first country in the world that imposed a lockdown solely upon individuals who have not taken the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
On Monday, videos began to surface online of the dystopian nightmare that Austrian citizens are now being forced to live in.
Police can be seen just about everywhere as they step up their patrols to hunt down any rulebreakers who dare to defy the government’s Covid orders.
As if it were 1940 all over again, officers are pulling random citizens over, hailing down cars as they pass by, and walking up to everybody in sight, demanding to see their papers to prove that they have taken the jab.
Austria’s interior minister made things very clear when he spoke about the tyrannical lockdown on Monday: “Every person in Austria must be aware that they can be checked by the police at any time.”
It’s going to be a long winter in Austria.
