11. November 2020 – The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Interior have reported 7,514 newly registered coronavirus cases (as of 9:30 a.m. today) within the last 24 hours.

In total, 172,380 people have tested positive in Austria since the beginning of the pandemic. 3,719 people have to be treated in hospital for the infection, 536 of them in intensive care. 1,564 people have died in connection with Covid-19 according to ministry figures.

The most positive test results were recorded in Vienna with 1,427 – due to technical problems at the weekend, two laboratories were reported to have been delayed here, according to the city. In second place was Upper Austria with 1,396 positive tests, followed by Tyrol with 1,103 newly infected persons and Lower Austria with 1,076, followed by Carinthia with 886, Styria with 869, Salzburg with 291, Vorarlberg with 272 and Burgenland with 194.

7-day incidence at 496
More significant, however, is the number of positively diagnosed cases over the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (7-day incidence), which, according to AGES, is 496 (as of today, 2 p.m.).

The new AGES dashboard replaced that of the Ministry of Health. These are significantly more active cases than in the counting method of the two ministries, since 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 epidemic curve more accurate, but changes the number of newly reported infections, which was previously used as a parameter, but is still communicated by the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Health.
