Austria has shut shops, restaurants and festive markets ahead of the Christmas holidays and returned to lockdown in the most dramatic Covid-19 restriction seen in Western Europe for months.

The decision has prompted a fierce backlash, with tens of thousands taking to the streets, some blaming the government for not doing more to avert the latest coronavirus wave in Europe.

As of this morning, Austria's 8.9 million people will not be allowed to leave home except to go to work, shop for essentials and exercise.
