For the first time since mid-June, the number of new daily infections rose above 200 again. The reason: (Matura)travel, night gastronomy and infections in the household.
For the first time in a month, the number of new infections rose above 200 on Tuesday, bringing the 7-day incidence to around 12.6. Only two weeks ago, the incidence was still at 5.4 – the low point since the third wave.
Experts do not yet want to speak of a fourth Corona wave. Both the traffic light commission and the Covid forecasting consortium recently saw a “high probability” of a fourth Corona wave on the basis of the delta variant. What is open, they said, is the timing of its arrival and its magnitude.
In any case, the current spike in numbers can be attributed to smaller regional clusters.
Overview of the most affected districts here:
On Monday, 26 active Corona cases were reported in the district of Reutte, thirteen of them in the district town alone. The trigger, according to the Tiroler Tageszeitung, was a trip to Malta on the occasion of a high school graduation.
In general, the new infections are mainly due to travelers returning home, says the head of the Tyrolean task force, Elmar Rizzoli. This trend has solidified in recent days. Of the current new infections, 23 percent are due to “travel,” according to AGES. AGES attributes 52 percent to a household infection.
Overall, the AGES detection rate is currently around 68 percent. Another problem for contact tracing is the situation in night-time catering, where one infected person can lead to hundreds of contacts.
In Vienna alone, there were recently cases of infection in seven clubs and more than 1,500 K1 or K2 persons, ZiB2 reported Monday. And in Lannach, Styria, a Corona-infected person had visited the discotheque in the night from July 3 to 4.
