End of the “control mania” demanded
Mahrer demands that if the lockdown for the unvaccinated expires, then the proportionality of other measures must also be reconsidered. According to a study, if everyone in retail wears FFP2 masks, the risk of infection when shopping is only 0.1 percent, he calculates. “So I don’t understand why, if there is a vaccination requirement, the control mania is maintained there,” says Mahrer. He understands the displeasure of the employees who have to monitor compliance with the 2G rules. The government’s advisory group, GECKO, should comment on this quickly and not postpone decisions on this until March. The WKO President doubts the constitutionality of the measure.
