The reproduction rate, which indicates how many more people are infected by a SARS-CoV-2 infected person on average, has fallen slightly to 1.33. A week ago the value was 1.38. The daily rate of increase in new corona infections fell from 9.4 to 6.9 percent compared to last Friday.
The effective reproduction rate for November 4 is well above 1.0 for all Austrian states, according to the document published on Friday afternoon on the AGES website. The number of newly diagnosed cases every day is “at an increased level”. The calculated estimates were based on new infections with laboratory diagnostic data in the period October 23 to November 4. According to AGES, 57,477 cases occurred during this period.
6464 new infections, 72 more deaths
The number of new corona infections within 24 hours remained below 7000 on Friday (as of 9.30 am) – 6464 newly infected patients were reported. However, Health Minister Rudolf Anschober did not see any reason for relief on Friday due to the lower number compared to Thursday – because the number of hospitalizations continues to rise. The number of further deaths in the past 24 hours is particularly dramatic: For example, 72 more people died as a result of a coronavirus infection.
