The number of new infections is usually lower at the weekend. 2,741 new infections with the coronavirus have been registered in Austria in the past 24 hours according to Sunday figures. This represents a decrease of more than 700 compared to the Saturday figures, although fewer test results are reported on Sundays than on weekdays. Compared to last Sunday’s figure (4,047 new infections), there was a decrease of 1,306 according to the figures from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Interior (as of 9:30 a.m.).

Thus, 303,430 positive PCR test results have been registered in Austria since the beginning of the pandemic. The number of deaths from or with SARS-CoV-20 remained below 100 with 83 in the past 24 hours. 3,840 deaths from or with Covid-19 have been recorded in Austria so far, 252,765 have recovered. Thus, the increase of 3,324 people recovered from coronavirus was again higher than that of newly infected persons. The number of hospital patients fell from 3,877 to 3,802, of whom 632 were in intensive care units – a decrease of 14 compared to Saturday.

Broken down by federal provinces, most new infections were registered, as on Saturday, in Lower Austria with 551, followed by Upper Austria with 526. Vienna followed in third place with 366 new infections, just ahead of Tyrol with 362. 340 new infections were reported in Styria, 239 in Vorarlberg, 198 in Carinthia, 103 in Salzburg and 56 in Burgenland.

In the past 24 hours, 18,118 tests were reported, of which about 15.1 percent were positive. On average, 23,464 test results per day were added in the past seven days, the positive rate over seven days was 14.4 percent. The fact that the highest number of new infections was registered in Lower Austria was also due to the fact that here, with 5,916, by far the most tests were registered in the province in the past 24 hours. Vienna followed with a respectable margin with 3,770 test registrations.

The seven- and 14-day incidences, i.e. the new infections in the respective period per 100,000 inhabitants, are still at a high level, but slightly declining: throughout Austria, the seven-day incidence was 266.5 (Saturday: 281.2), the 14-day incidence 631.9 (Saturday: 659.8). In Vienna, the seven-day incidence was below 200 at 195.2, and in all provinces except Vorarlberg – 259.1 after 223.6 – the seven-day incidence was lower than the previous day.

Of the 63 deaths from or with SARS-CoV-2, almost half were registered in Upper Austria (21) and Styria (20). Carinthia (twelve) and Vienna (eleven) were also in double digits. Carinthia still has the highest seven-day incidence of deaths per 100,000 inhabitants at 20.3, compared to the Austrian average of 8.3.
