The number of active coronavirus cases in Austria is currently (as of 14.00 hrs today, 12 October 2020 ) 13,670 according to the figures of the AGES dashboard, which replaced the dashboard of the Ministry of Health on Tuesday last week. This was accompanied by a leap in the number of those currently infected, as around 2,000 convalescents had not yet been registered in the new system.
In addition, new cases are no longer assigned to the time of registration, but to the date of laboratory diagnosis, which may have taken place days before. This makes the curve of the epidemic more accurate, but changes the number of newly reported infections, which was previously often used as a parameter, but is still communicated in the morning by the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Health.
Today, there are about 1,000 cases. More significant, however, is the number of positively diagnosed cases over the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (7-day incidence), which stands at 83.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been a total of 56,591 laboratory-confirmed cases nationwide. 561 people have to be treated in hospital because of the infection, 97 of them in intensive care. So far 869 people have died as a result of the infection.
