Rural Austrians are not impressed by his threats. This really only applies to the inhabitants of cities like Vienna and Innsbruck.

Incriminating and blaming the unvaccinated is easy, but. among the positive cases and the one in ICU, it would be good to publish figures for Austria. Scapegoats now are all designated.

Vaccines are not mandatory but the pressure against the unvaccinated is increasing in most countries.

In Japan now, with the vaccine package test, restaurants participating in the test are separating vaccinated from non vaccinated. It is like smokers and non smokers.

Or, Austria could do like Peru, India, and Mexico did and make Ivermectin more widely available.

What an obvious bs, the truth is, in fact they need all the workforce, the expertise, the taxes, the consumption etc also from all unvaccinated. Does that guy think, the economy, the social security systems, the riches, the EU bureaucracy or the hundreds of thousands of immigrants can easily afford to throw away all the contributions of the unvaccinated population part? It’s not a threat, it’s freeing those people from their usual ‘slavery’ obligations. lol

Of course not. He expects them to see sense and go and get the jab.

The gates at Auschwitz also expected things. Arbeit macht frei .

I doubt that threatening with lockdown leads to so much more seeing sense to get the jab. Some convincing arguments would help more, imo.

Do you mean like it's safe and effective and it reduces infections while protecting you against the virus. If those basic facts aren't accepted, I doubt you can come up with any convincing argument that an anti-science, anti-vaxxer will accept.

Austrian People's Party is a Christian-democratic and liberal-conservative political party.

The harder tyrants try to squeeze, the stronger our resolve becomes.

It's a game of chicken and the authoritarians keep losing.

Tell that to Putin, see what happens.

Those nations supposedly using that livestock wormer are a disaster, especially Peru. Simple as that.

Covid deaths per million-

Peru - 5958 (worst in the entire world)

Mexico - 2188

India - 325

Japan - 144

NZ - 6

Get vaccinated. Dont use livestock wormer. Follow the science - or suffer the deserved consequences of being shut out.

Oooh, the data finally came back did it? Do share the good news.
