The number of people infected with the coronavirus climbed to a new record level on Thursday. According to the Ministry of the Interior, 9,262 people tested positive for Covid-19 were added to the number.

So far there have been 181,642 positive test results in Austria. On Thursday, 3,811 infected persons were undergoing treatment in a hospital. 546 of the infected persons were in intensive care units. The numbers by federal states: Burgenland: 194, Carinthia: 399, Lower Austria: 634, Upper Austria: 2,554, Salzburg: 798, Styria: 1,116, Tyrol: 879, Vorarlberg: 537 and Vienna 2,151.

Problems with reporting system
It is also a new record for the Austrian capital. But: The high value is due to late registrations, according to the city’s crisis management team. For example, the value is only moderately meaningful, as there have been technical problems with the Federal Epidemiological Reporting System (EMS), into which the federal states report corona data since the weekend.

Therefore, the actual number of new corona virus cases within 24 hours cannot be read correctly from the statistics published today. According to the crisis team, the technical problems affect all federal states. According to Health Minister Rudolf Anschober (Greens), however, they should now be solved. Whereby the head of department was still expecting late reports for today, Thursday.
