From Tuesday to Wednesday, 2,268 new Corona infections were registered in Austria. Compared to the previous week (1,848 cases), this is 420 cases more.

In Austria’s hospitals are currently 645 people in connection with a covid disease, which is 31 more than the previous day. 180 patients are in intensive care – nine more than the day before.

In addition, there are three new deaths related to covid 19 infection to report, bringing the pandemic death toll in Austria to 10,815 so far. The number of active cases rises to 18,256. The seven-day incidence is 124.29.

In the past 24 hours, 123,532 PCR tests have been performed, with a positive rate of 1.84 percent.

Just over 14,000 vaccinations on Tuesday.
Corona vaccination helps against a severe covid 19 course and to prevent overloading the health care system, but the campaign has stalled in Austria. As of Tuesday, 14,054 vaccinations had been administered. A total of 5,553,681 people have already received at least a partial vaccination, according to E-vaccination passport data: That’s 62.2 percent of the population. Exactly 5,255,800, or 58.8 percent of Austrians, are already fully immunized.

The highest vaccination coverage rate is in Burgenland with 66.7 percent, in Lower Austria 61.7 percent of the population is fully vaccinated, in all other provinces it is partly significantly below 60 percent. Bringing up the rear are Carinthia with 55 percent and Upper Austria with only 54.2 percent.

Looking at the age groups, there are still too few young people vaccinated. Among those aged 12 to 24, 44.3 percent are fully immunized, in the 25 to 34 age group the rate is 55.9 percent and among those aged 35 to 44, 62 percent. 67.2 percent of people ages 45 to 54 are fully protected against Covid-19, and 76.5 percent in the 55 to 64 group. Those ages 65 to 74 have a full-immunization rate of 82.1 percent, those ages 75 to 84 have 87.2 percent and the 85-plus group has 87.2 percent.
