0 24
Small shops and markets in Austria could reopen under certain conditions next week, although tight lockdown restrictions will remain in place, the country’s chancellor has said, while other businesses could follow next month.

Sebastian Kurz has rolled out a plan to “gradually open our society” after weeks of tough restrictions aimed at containing the spread of Covid-19. While the international situation is still “dramatic,” Austria could “avert the worst” by acting faster than other nations, the chancellor told reporters from behind protective glass.

The country, which has over 12,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, can move towards “a gradual resurrection” of normal life having taken all necessary precautions, he said.
