Austria is planning a lockdown for those who have not received a COVID vaccine, the country's Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg has said.

Before the move is finalized, there will be a virtual conference among the country's governors over the weekend, followed by a meeting of Austria's parliament, the National Council, on Sunday, the Austria Press Agency reported.

News outlet OE.24 reported that the lockdown, which would affect around a third of the population, could come into effect on Wednesday, November 17.

In Austria, there will be C5 X only with a motorization option, a 225 hp plug-in hybrid to which an 8-speed automatic transmission is coupled.

Upper Austria province, the country's worst-affected region, could see a lockdown of the unvaccinated as early as Monday, The Associated Press reported, pending "a legal green light from the federal government," Governor Thomas Stelzer said on Thursday.

The drastic measures come as Austria becomes the latest European country to grapple with a spike in COVID cases, after a new record weekly high of 67,148 new cases over the past seven days, according to Johns Hopkins University figures.

There were 760.6 reported new cases per 100,000 residents over the previous seven days, three times that of neighboring Germany, whose government is also concerned about record numbers. In the Netherlands, a partial lockdown will see indoor venues close early and sporting events held without spectators, Reuters reported.

  Russia Told U.S. It Won't Abuse Nord Stream 2. NATO's Baltic Allies Don't Buy It When the Specialized Aethos line of road bikes was released in 2020, an impressive lineup of the most experienced testers at Bicycling—including Matt Phillips and Bill Strickland—thought it just might be (as Phillips said in his review,) “one of the finest road bikes, of any price, I’ve ridden in my long testing career.” The Aethos fascinated you, too—our stories and videos featuring it were among the most popular of the year. “It’s every bit as high-tech as Specialized’s other top-tier bikes,” one of our reviews said, but “the most exciting thing about the Aethos is that it’s a throwback to the way bikes used to be before design went nuts chasing the aerodynamic holy grail.” So we commissioned Joseph O'Neil, an artist from our Easton, PA, hometown to turn his own Jet Fuel Aethos into a highly personal (and speedy) work of art.

Schallenberg has rejected the idea of a lockdown for everyone, saying he did not want the two-thirds of vaccinated Austrians to be forced to face the same lockdown as the unvaccinated, although other restrictions may apply to everyone.

During a visit to Bregenz in the west of the country on Thursday, he said: "I don't see why two-thirds should lose their freedom because one-third is dithering. For me, it is clear that there should be no lockdown for the vaccinated out of solidarity for the unvaccinated."

He also warned that the unvaccinated face an "uncomfortable" winter and Christmas, and lamented that the proportion of the population that was vaccinated—about 65 percent—was "shamefully low."

Measures were put in place this week to curb COVID and encourage vaccinations.

From Monday, unvaccinated people who had not recovered from an infection, were barred from restaurants, hotels, hairdressing salons and large public events.

In the light of new highest highs of corona infections, the demands for stricter rules of conduct, controls and obligations for certain occupational groups are increasing.

In October, Schallenberg announced lockdown restrictions for the unvaccinated should be put in place once coronavirus patients take up 30 percent of ICU beds. COVID patients currently take up around a fifth of ICU beds, according to Reuters, with the numbers rising.

Authorities are also looking at implementing a vaccine mandate for some professional groups. "We can break this wave together," Schallenberg said.

Newsweek has contacted the National Council for comment.
