European nations eases COVID restrictions with mandatory vaccine


Infection with the Omicron version of the coronavirus continues in many European countries. Despite the uproar of the infection, some European nations are easing COVID-19 restrictions, pushing for a vaccine mandate to stop the spread of Covid-19 cases. Here’s the latest information about the counts and situation in Europe:



Vaccine mandate could become more common in Europe as the government takes an aggressive approach after a record rise in cases.

Firstly, the Austrian parliament voted in favour of the vaccination mandate, which requires Austrians to be vaccinated and fines $4,100 for non-vaccination.

In a regular protest, the anti-vaxxers demanded the government to repeal its rule and allow citizens to have fundamental freedom and rights. Only in a few countries governments has made vaccination mandatory. Austria has become the first European country to implement such a rule.

Similarly, in Poland, anti-vaxxers are not allowed to dine in restaurants. A Polish restaurant owner told customers to get vaccinated or get out. Poland has low vaccination coverage like Austria, as only 56% of Polish citizens fully are vaccinated against Covid-19; however, many nations are sceptical of the vaccines in several parts of the country.

French PM Jean Castex said the French government would ease covid-19 rules in the first week of February. The announcement was recorded by the PM when France recorded more than 3,00,00 cases for more than a week.

PM also hoped that mandating the vaccine passes would help in easing the rest of the covid-19 in a bid to help French citizens to return normalcy. The authorities will lift the cap on audience limits for concert halls, sports matches or other events. It will also end the restriction imposed on the night clubs allowing them to open from February 16.


Castex further asserted that France had witnessed the new rules to fight with the COVID-19.
