Before Easter, Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz sent another appeal to the Austrians: No family celebrations, no meetings.
Austria is the country with the best development of corona numbers in Western Europe. This is due to the exit restrictions, the measures and the participation of the population. “We are far from over the mountain, because the virus is still in the middle of us and the danger is still there. Please stay at home, do not meet anyone, keep your distance, reduce your social contacts to just the people with whom you live, “says Kurz.
“Please no family celebrations”
The most important thing therefore: “Please do not celebrate family celebrations on Easter weekend. Everyone has the opportunity to save lives through their behavior,” said the Chancellor. “We in the federal government are fully aware that the urge for freedom and the desire to see parents, grandparents or friends again is getting bigger and bigger,” said Kurz. But it is in our hands to hold out the coming days “so that after Easter we can gradually and gradually return to normal”.
But this will only succeed “if we do the following days what we have done so impressively over the past three weeks: we stay at home and leave the house only for shopping, to go to work, to support those who need help, represented for feet or for sport “. Even if the sun and the beautiful weather tempted people to go on longer trips and gather outdoors, the situation remains “dangerous and deceptive, because the virus has not yet been defeated and the risk of infection is still very high”, Kurz said.
