Vienna has recorded 1,134 positive PCR tests at schools so far this week, twice as many as in the same period the previous week. However, the results of the second round of testing are still missing.
This week, there have been 1,558 positive results in PCR tests at schools for the time being. However, the results of the second Viennese testing round from Wednesday are still missing from this data (in all other federal states there is only one PCR test per week at schools). This means that significantly more positive tests were recorded than in the same period of the previous week (858), which is mainly due to the federal capital.

Almost 1,600 positive PCR tests at schools for the time being
Accordingly, 1,134 “hits” were recorded in Vienna, twice as many as in the same period of the previous week (552). In Styria, too, there was more than a doubling at a lower level; in the other provinces, the numbers did not increase as much or stagnated. There were 138 positive cases reported from Upper Austria (previous week: 124), 78 (32) from Styria , 77 (50) from Lower Austria, 43 (30) from Salzburg, 37 (26) from Carinthia, 35 (33) from Tyrol, nine (three) from Burgenland and seven (eight) from Vorarlberg.

However, the figures from Vienna are not comparable with those from the other federal states: In the federal capital, with the exception of elementary schools, testing is carried out using a separate program (“Alles gurgelt”). Here, the test already strikes as positive at a higher CT value. Moreover, the “Alles gurgelt” figures include not only the positive results of the mass tests at the schools, but also, for example, the additional testing of symptomatic pupils or after positive cases in the family with “Alles gurgelt”.

Two schools closed in Upper Austria, 19 quarantine classes in Vienna
In Upper Austria, two schools are closed due to clustered infections. Despite the increasing number of positive tests, there are significantly fewer classes in quarantine than in the previous week: Austria-wide there are 70 – most in Vienna (19), followed by Lower Austria (13), Upper Austria and Carinthia (eleven each), Salzburg and Tyrol (six each) and Vorarlberg (four). There were no closed classes in Styria and Burgenland.
