Undercover Police are being deployed in Austria to assist in the intensification of COVID restrictions in the country.
Austrian police are to considerably ramp up checks regarding COVID restrictions. The crackdown will even go as far as deploying plainclothes police to the streets to catch out those who might attempt to go about their daily business while avoiding officers, top Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung reports.
While authorities in the country have already reportedly done 1.6 million checks since the start of the nation’s “Corona Apartheid‘ lockdown of unvaccinated individuals, Austria’s Interior Minister Gerhard Karner has said they will be ramped up even further.
“The controls will… continue to be intensified, above all out of fairness towards those who support the necessary restrictions in solidarity,” the interior minister said, it was reported Monday.
