The number of active coronavirus cases in Austria (as of 14.00 today) is 19,910, according to the figures of the AGES dashboard, which recently replaced that of the Ministry of Health. 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. The difference now amounts to around 1,000 cases.
In addition, new cases are no longer assigned to the registration date, but to the date of laboratory diagnosis, which may have taken place days before. This makes the curve of the epidemic course more accurate, but changes the number of newly reported infections, which was previously often used as a characteristic value, but which is still communicated in the morning by the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Health. That was 1,524 today.
More meaningful, however, is the number of positively diagnosed cases over the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (7-day incidence), which is 114.5.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been a total of 68,414 laboratory-confirmed cases nationwide. 889 people have to be treated in hospital because of the infection, 145 of them in intensive care. 927 people died as a result of the infection.
