The number of active coronavirus cases in Austria is currently (as of 14.00 today) 14,106, according to the figures of the AGES dashboard, which replaced that of the Ministry of Health on Tuesday last week. This was accompanied by a leap in the number of those currently infected, as convalescents are registered more slowly in the new system.
In addition, new cases are no longer assigned to the time of registration, but to the time 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 characteristic value, 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 84.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been a total of 57,762 laboratory-confirmed cases nationwide. 611 people have to be treated in hospital for the infection, which is 50 more than the day before. 107 hospitalized persons are in intensive care. According to the AGES dashboard, 879 people died as a result of the infection.
