Austria has banned gatherings of five people or more as part of a series of new, tighter restrictions to “starve” the coronavirus.

The government is also closing restaurants from Tuesday, and is telling people not to leave the home apart from to go to work, get food or grab other necessities, or to help people.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz tweeted: “We’re aware those are massive restrictions but they are necessary to defend the health of the Austrian people and starve out Covid-19.”

People have also been banned from entering Austria from the UK, Netherlands, Russia and Ukraine – an extension of a ban that was already in place for Italy and Switzerland.
