The Austrian situation is the most incredible turnaround. They had one of the most brutal mandatory vaccination programs in the world only a few weeks ago and now even laws made a few weeks ago look like they will never be enacted.
With terrible timing the Austrian government only approved the draconian mandatory vaccination laws on Jan 20th, just in time for everyone to realize that the vaccines didn’t work, and Omicron wasn’t an emergency.
Strangely the all new monster mandatory vaccination rule technically still exists, but may be scrapped before it even starts.

The absurdity of it destroys itself. …
Germany announces end to most COVID restrictions on March 20:

Much of the talk about vaccine mandates and massive fines for non-compliance was just bluff.
