Austria extends the lockdown until January 24

Austrian Chancellor Kurtz is under investigation

On November 17th, local time, Vienna, Austria, the shopping street was sparsely populated. The Austrian government upgraded the national "lockdown" measures from the 17th to contain the coronavirus epidemic.

Austria has extended the lockdown until January 24 and restaurants and non-essential stores will not be able to open, according to Reuters on January 4, citing the Austrian news agency APA.

The APA quoted Austrian Health Minister Rudolf Anschober as saying the decision came after the Austrian opposition blocked a draft law that would have allowed anyone who tested negative for the coronavirus to lift the lockdown a week earlier.
