In Vienna, the number of new infections more than doubled within 24 hours. 653 cases were reported, compared to 275 in the same period. In Upper Austria, 359 cases were reported, in Lower Austria 230, and in Styria 158. In Tyrol, the numbers have also risen sharply: from 74 to currently 130. Salzburg reported 113, Vorarlberg 86 (compared to 48 in the same period before), Carinthia 81 (before there were 42) and Burgenland 38 new infections.

At the same time, the number of vaccinations increased again on Tuesday. 15,911 Austrians received a vaccination dose on Tuesday, compared to only 7965 on Monday and 3268 on Sunday. Within the last week, 89,638 vaccine doses were administered. In early June, more than 143,000 people were vaccinated on the peak day. In total, 5,506,238 people have already received at least a partial vaccination, according to E-vaccine passport data: That’s 61.6 percent of the population. Exactly 5,206,024, or 58.3 percent of Austrians, are fully immunized.

Full immunization, which experts say protects against a severe course of the disease, has been received by 66.3 percent of the population in Burgenland, followed by Lower Austria (61.2 percent), Styria (59.1 percent), Vorarlberg (57.8 percent), Tyrol (57 percent), Vienna (56.5 percent), Salzburg (54.8) and Carinthia (54.5 percent). Upper Austria continues to bring up the rear with 53.7 percent of fully immunized persons.

Incidence among unvaccinated under-18s 16 times higher
The pandemic is increasingly becoming a matter for the younger and unvaccinated population. For example, the seven-day incidence among the unvaccinated under 18 is 16 times higher than among the vaccinated. Among 18- to 59-year-olds, it is nearly six times higher, and among the 60-plus generation, it is still more than five times higher than among immunized people in this age group, current data from the Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) show.

The incidence among unvaccinated people in the twelve- to 17-year-old age group is 263.5, more than three times higher than among the unimmunized 60-plus generation. The same is true for the 18- to 59-year-old group, with an incidence of 257.9. However, the incidence is also on the rise in the unvaccinated older population, and as of August 30, it was already 85. A week ago, it was 80.7 in the 60-plus generation. In the immunized 12- to 17-year-olds, the incidence is only 16.3. It is even lower in the older population. Among those over 60 who have already been fully immunized, the incidence is only 15.7. The age group 18 to 59 is virtually the most immunized group, with a seven-day incidence of 43.9 among the vaccinated.

However, the average age of those infected has recently risen again. Last week (August 23-29), an infected person was on average 32.1 years old – the highest value in ten weeks.
