With 1958 cases, there was another negative record within 24 hours yesterday, according to the state crisis committee in the Ministry of the Interior. Leader was again Vienna with this time 514 new infections, followed by Lower Austria and Upper Austria with more than 300 cases each.
Here are some more alarming statistical health data: Compared to the comparable figure for the whole of Austria a week ago, the increase was a whopping 45 percent. And currently more than nine percent of Covid-19 tests in the state are already positive. Also a much too high number.
With the virus fever curve, the number of corona patients admitted to hospitals is also increasing. On Wednesday almost 1000 people with the novel lung disease were treated in local clinics. There were also eleven more deaths within one day.
Due to the high 7-day incidence (cases per 100,000 inhabitants) – almost vital for the local winter tourism – no lifting of the travel warnings for Austria is in sight. Currently we exceed the internationally recognized alarm value of 50 cases/100,000 inhabitants by more than double.
