Europe once again the epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemic


New lockdowns are being imposed in parts of Europe that is once again the epicentre of COVID-19.

In Austria the measures are extreme, targeting the unvaccinated and that has led to protests.

The Austrian government ordered a nationwide lockdown for unvaccinated people starting midnight Sunday to slow the fast spread of the coronavirus in the country.

The move prohibits unvaccinated individuals older than age 12 from leaving their homes except for basic activities such as working, grocery shopping, going for a walk – or getting vaccinated.

As Jennifer Johnson explains, the situation in Europe should serve as a warning for North America.
