The Health Ministry in Austria recorded 1,408 new COVID 19 infections within 24 hours. From Saturday to Sunday, 1,429 infections were reported. Thus, the rate remained below the seven-day average of 1,863. However, this is due to the low number of registered tests due to the holidays.

From Saturday to Sunday, there were only 9,909 tests nationwide; the day before, there were almost twice as many, 17,384. 14.9 percent of the 9,909 tests were positive. As a result, the seven-day incidence – number of new infections in seven days per 100,000 population – continued to decline slightly from 149.1 to 146.5.

Within the past 24 hours, there were 38 deaths from or with coronavirus. The number of deceased was 60 the day before. A total of 5,881 people did not survive the effects of infection. The seven-day average is now 75.7 deaths.

Currently, 2,557 are in hospital with a Corona infection, most of them in Upper Austria. Intensive care units in the state had 414 patients with Covid-19 on Sunday, down 17 from the day before. The highest number of intensive care patients was recorded on November 25, when 709 people required intensive care treatment.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, 351,892 people in Austria have contracted SARS-CoV-2. 323,002 have recovered from infection. Currently, 23,009 are suffering from an infection (as of Sunday, 9:30 a.m.), which is 879 fewer than on St. Stephen’s Day.

Most new infections were measured in the past 24 hours in Carinthia with 282 new infections, followed by Lower Austria with 247, Vienna with 226, Upper Austria with 205, Salzburg with 147, Tyrol with 124, Styria with 111, Vorarlberg with 39 and Burgenland with 27 new infections.
