A total of 536 positive results were recorded at schools on Monday and yesterday in a total of 1.3 million “nose-picking” self-tests across Austria. This was reported by the Ministry of Education to APA. Affected are 364 students and 172 teachers.

This week, for the first time, the tests were on children’s timetables across Austria after the end of the semester break in seven provinces. Those who wanted to take part in the face-to-face classes had to test themselves at the beginning of the school day.

Most positive results in Vienna and Lower Austria
In the previous week, around 200 positive results were recorded in Vienna and Lower Austria, where the semester break had already ended a week earlier. This week, there were around 350 in these two states (Vienna: 250, Lower Austria: 103).

“We do not attribute this to an increasing frequency of infections, but to an increased testing routine,” said ÖVP Education Minister Heinz Faßmann. “Elementary school children in particular understand better from week to week how to take samples and thus ensure valid results.”

There were 43 positive tests each in Upper Austria and Styria, 40 in Carinthia, 19 in Salzburg, 15 in Vorarlberg, 13 in Tyrol and ten in Burgenland. All those affected are now taking another PCR test – in the previous week, positive results were confirmed in three-quarters of cases.

The first Austria-wide round of tests “went off without a hitch, and the acceptance of the tests is fortunately very high,” Faßmann said. Only about one percent of students or their parents refuse to take the test. These children have to work on the subject matter at home, but are supported by teachers if necessary.
