Nearly two-thirds of intensive care covid patients are currently under 60 years as – a few are even younger than 30.

Not only in Vienna, where almost two-thirds of the Covid patients requiring intensive care are not yet 60 years old and four are even younger than 30 (cut-off date: September 7), the average age is falling among Corona patients admitted as inpatients and requiring an intensive care bed. A look at data in five other states shows this.

Of the four Covid patients – three men and one woman – who required intensive care in Tyrol during the first week of September, two were between 30 and 44 years old, according to the Ministry of Health. Another was older than 45 but not yet 60, and one was between 65 and 69 years old.

In Salzburg, where 10 patients were receiving care in Covid intensive care units on Sept. 7, half were between 45 and 59 years old. Three were in their sixties, and two were between 70 and 79 years old. Seven affected were men, three women.

Styrian hospitals provided intensive care for 16 severe covid cases on Sept. 7, and 63 percent of those affected were men. Three were between 30 and 44 years old, four over 45 but younger than 54. Five were in their sixties, one in his early seventies. Three were older than 80.

In Upper Austria, where 30 ICU patients were recorded in Covid wards on Tuesday (Sept. 7) – two-thirds of them male – according to the Ministry of Health, two were younger than 30, between 15 and 29 years old. Two were between 30 and 44, and 12 were 45 to 59 years old. Seven patients had ages between 60 and 64, and two between 65 and 69. Five were between 70 and 74 years old.

In the Covid wards in Lower Austria, one of a total of 26 ICU patients was in his or her thirties two days ago. Five were over 40 but not yet 50, and ten were between 50 and 59 years old. Four critically ill covid patients in Lower Austrian hospitals were in their sixties, five in their seventies. One was over 80 years old.

The exact age of the patients was not made public; moreover, the individual provinces use different age groups. For Vorarlberg, Carinthia and Burgenland, no current data were available to the Ministry of Health regarding the age structure of covid patients requiring intensive care.
