Within 24 hours, 1,333 new corona virus infections had been added across Austria by Friday morning. This is less than the seven-day average of 1,421 cases, and the weekly incidence per 100,000 population thus dropped from around 121 the previous day to a value of 112. The number of hospitalized people has also dropped just as significantly by 86 affected people since Thursday. The 1,394 hospitalized patients was below the 1,400 mark for the first time since March 1.

18 deaths have been reported since the previous day, with a seven-day average of 20.9 daily, or 146 more Corona deaths in one week. In total, the Corona pandemic has claimed 10,351 lives in Austria since it began.
628,817 positive Corona tests in Austria so far
