Statistically, the coronavirus now “catches” mainly children, young people and working people in Austria. This is confirmed by figures from the Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) for calendar week ten (March 8 to 14). According to these figures, the average age of those infected is now 37.9 years. At the beginning of the year, the average was 46.7 years, and in mid-April of the previous year it was 56.7 years.

If one takes a detailed look at the infection figures in the past week (March 8 to 14), one notices – in relation to the various age groups – a decline in the elderly and very elderly. Of the total of 17,383 new infections, 1.6 percent affected those over 85 years of age. In absolute numbers, this was 295 cases – 14 fewer than two weeks earlier. 3.2 percent of those infected last week were between 75 and 84 years old. This equated to 587 cases, with this group of 75- to 84-year-olds having the lowest seven-day incidence per 100,000 population at 93.9.

This contrasted with a significant increase in the number of infections among children, adolescents, young adults, and adults up to their mid-40s. Between 2,800 and 2,900 new cases each occurred last week among 15- to 24-year-olds, 25- to 34-year-olds, and 45- to 54-year-olds. Two weeks earlier, there were 1,200 fewer new infections among 15- to 24-year-olds and about 1,000 fewer new cases in the other two age groups.

Significant upward movement in infection numbers also occurred among children ages five to 14 and infants younger than five, where 1,278 and 272 infections with SARS-CoV-2 were recorded, respectively, between February 15 and 21 (calendar week seven). Last week, 2,218 new cases were reported among children and 513 among infants.
