So many infected people walk through Vienna without symptoms

Due to the tense Corona situation, FFP2 masks will be mandatory in certain places in Vienna from April 1 until probably April 11, and there will also be a lockdown, which will be extended if necessary.
Austria counted 2,906 new Corona-infected people on Thursday, 1,023 of them the federal capital Vienna alone. Many were unaware until the test.

As of Thursday, April 8, 2021, the Vienna Health Authority and the medical crisis team of the city of Vienna announce 122,015 positive tests in Vienna since the beginning of the pandemic. This represents an increase of 1,023 cases of infection in the most recent 24 hours. 110,545 people have recovered, again 978 more than the previous day. The number of deaths related to the virus is 1,980, in 24 hours eight people died.

Austria’s free newspaper “Heute” provides more “hard” figures: The federal capital currently counts 9,490 active Corona cases. On Wednesday, 64,796 Corona test results were also registered, of which 45,287 were PCR tests and 19,509 were rapid antigen tests. What’s more, 50 percent of people who currently test positive in Vienna are asymptomatic at the time of testing. This means that in most cases they only find out they have Corona when they are tested.

Converted to the new Corona figures, this means that more than 500 of the more than 1,000 newly infected people had no symptoms at all when they tested positive. The detection rate in Vienna is currently 63 percent. This means that almost two out of three cases can be traced and chains of infection broken. The run on the telephone information line continues to be high: Health hotline 1450 has taken 15,611 calls.
