. Covid in Austria: Mass protest in Vienna against measures « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS/Tens of thousands of people have staged a protest in Austria against measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, including mandatory vaccinations.

Police say about 44,000 people rallied in the capital, Vienna, the fourth straight weekend of demonstrations.

Last month Austria became the first western European country to reimpose a lockdown for those who are vaccinated, which ends on Sunday.

But restrictions will continue for unvaccinated people.

The protesters, backed by the far-right Freedom Party, are against the government’s decision to make Covid-19 jabs mandatory from February.
