Austria continues to not get a grip on the coronavirus. Over 3,400 new cases have been added in the last 24.
The corona situation in Austria remains tense! Although “only” 2,412 new infections had been reported in 24 hours on yesterday’s Monday, especially the drastic increase of Corona patients in intensive care units in the last few days is causing many experts great concern.
And even one day after the Corona summit of the federal government with experts, the state governors and the opposition, there can be no talk of an easing of the situation in the country. The corona virus continues to spread.
Today Tuesday, a total of 3,415 new infections and 32 deaths were registered throughout Austria. For comparison: last Tuesday there were 2,521 new infections.
Particularly explosive: of the 3,415 Corona cases, 1,091 cases are attributable to the federal capital Vienna alone. The number of Corona patients in hospitals also increased by 66 across Austria.
New infections in the provinces:
Lower Austria: 667
Upper Austria: 494
So far, there have been 519,980 positive test results in Austria. As of today (9:30 a.m.), 9,121 people across Austria have died as a result of the virus and 477,940 have recovered. Currently, 2,049 people are undergoing hospital treatment due to the coronavirus. Of these, 437 are being cared for in intensive care units.
The Ministry of Health’s dashboard is operated by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) and can be accessed at “covid19-dashboard.ages.at.” The dashboard obtains its data exclusively from the Epidemiological Reporting Register (EMS) and is updated daily, 14:00. The EMS is the official register in which data is entered by the district authorities as well as by laboratories.
The Federal Ministry of the Interior collects the figures as part of the coordination of State Crisis and Disaster Management in the Operations and Coordination Center (EKC) via videoconference. These figures may include cases not yet recorded in the EMS.
