Number of new corona infections in Austria remains extremely high.
With over 9,100 new corona infections, a new negative record has been reached. The virus situation throughout Austria remains dramatic.
In the midst of the political discussion about corona-related school closures, the number of new infections in Austria has reached a new high: According to “Krone”, “Heute” and “oe24.at” there have been 9,105 new cases within the last 24 hours – more than ever before since the outbreak of the pandemic in Austria. However, this figure also includes the late reports of the past few days which were not recorded by the system due to an IT problem.
According to “Heute” information, the figures from Tyrol and Vienna are still pending. Without these two provinces there were 6,232 new positive findings in the last 24 hours – and 37 deaths.
This afternoon the Traffic Light Commission is meeting to evaluate possible tougher corona measures – these are to be announced by the government on Friday. Currently, these seven lockdown tightenings are being discussed.
Health Minister Rudolf Anschober (Greens) assumes that the problems with the corona data that occurred in the past few days have been solved. Several countries had reported massive difficulties in registering new diseases. “The news this morning was that this has been taken care of and should work 100 percent again,” Anschober said at a press conference.
