From Monday to Tuesday, 1,240 new infections were reported in Austria. The seven-day incidence per 100,000 population was thus 150.1.
The number of new infections is currently declining. The death toll looks different: 22 deaths from or with Covid-19 within one day were reported by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Interior. This number is also more than double the average of the past seven days with, statistically, 9.9 deaths per day.
To date, there have been 726,674 positive test results in Austria. As of today (September 21, 2021, 10:30 a.m.), 10,918 people across Austria have died as a result of coronavirus and 693,600 have recovered.
897 people hospitalized
The number of hospital patients with Covid-19 remained high: 58 were added compared to yesterday, so 897 people were in hospital with a Corona infection on Tuesday. 214 of them were in intensive care units, down five from Monday but up 14 from a week ago.
Only 7,652 vaccinations on Monday
With the current pace of vaccination struggling, there remains concern that the situation will be very slow to improve. Only 7,652 vaccinations were added on Monday.
In total, 5,669,958 have already received at least a partial vaccination – 63.5 percent of the population – according to E-vaccination data. 5,355,022 people, or 59.9 percent of Austrians, are fully immunized.
By age group: Among those aged 12 to 24, 46.5 percent are fully immunized; in the 25 to 34 age group, the rate is 57.4 percent; and among those aged 35 to 44, 63.4 percent. 68.3 percent of people ages 45 to 54 are fully protected against Covid-19, and 77.3 percent in the 55 to 64 group. Those ages 65 to 74 have a fully immunized rate of 82.8 percent, those ages 75 to 84 have a rate of 87.9 percent, and the over-85 group also has a rate of 87.9 percent. Among the provinces, the vaccination coverage rate of the fully immunized is best in Burgenland with 67.5 percent followed by Lower Austria with 62.7 percent. Styria is also above 60 percent with 60.4 percent, while all other federal states are below this level, with Upper Austria bringing up the rear with a vaccination coverage rate of only 55.2 percent.
