Austria Doubles Checks At Hungarian Border
Austria is doubling checks and controls on its eastern borders due to a rise in the number of coronavirus epidemic cases.

Some 1,800 police officers are deployed to handle the situation.

Kurz pointed out that the daily increase in the number of new infections has repeatedly exceeded 100 recently.
