District captain of Melk: “We have to get infection processes under control”

Norbert Haselsteiner, the district captain of Melk, speaks in an interview with PULS 24 about the exit controls in Melk.

The Melk district is just over 1,000 square kilometers and has a population of over 78,000. It includes 40 communities. In terms of area, the Scheibbs district is equal, but with more than 41,000 inhabitants, it is sparsely populated and is divided into 18 municipalities. Since the two districts border one another, the result is a high-incidence area with more than 2,000 square kilometers and over 119,000 inhabitants.

This is what the people of Melk say about exit controls:

PULS 24 spoke to people in the Melk district about the high corona numbers.
