Austria decided in mid-march to introduce the relatively strict measures to combat coronaudbruddet.

But since the middle of april, these restrictions have been gradually eased.

last week, the cafés and restaurants allowed to open. But they must follow a set of rules - among other things, to close no later than 23 o'clock.

the Owner of the restaurant, where præsidentparret and their friends ate dinner, explains to the newspaper Krone that he believed that he had followed the rules by stopping the service at 23.

His view of the rules was that guests were allowed to be seated on the terrace after this time, if they wanted to.

the Restaurant is facing a fine for breaking the rules. President Van der Bellen has said that they 'will take responsibility'.

At the other end of Europe, there is a more heated discussion on whether there is one rule for ordinary people and another rule for high-ranking officials in the government.

It is in Britain, where prime minister Boris Johnson on Sunday defended its toprådgiver, Dominic Cummings.
