Austria enters 4th national lockdown, residents “fed up”

CA, 23 Nov 2021
Austria entered its fourth national lockdown on Monday, with frustrated people in Vienna saying the current situation resembled a "luxury prison" and that they were fed up.

Roughly 66% of Austria's population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, one of the lowest rates in western Europe.
