The number of active coronavirus cases in Austria (as of 14:00 today) is 21,385, according to the AGES dashboard, which recently replaced the dashboard of the Ministry of Health. This was accompanied by a leap in the number of people 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, the figure was 1,958, the highest number ever reported.
More meaningful, however, is the number of positively diagnosed cases over the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (7-day incidence), which rose to 121.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been a total of 70,769 laboratory-confirmed cases nationwide. 960 people have to be treated in hospital for the infection, 147 of them in intensive care. According to the AGES count, 940 people died as a result of the infection.
