Driven by the new coronavirus variant Omicron, infection figures in Vienna are increasing rapidly.

Across the federal capital, 5,028 new infections were counted last week – a 23 percent increase from the previous week. Only in Tyrol is the seven-day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants even higher than in Vienna. Styria is in the best position.

Although the situation in this country is by no means as bad as in Great Britain, Denmark or France, the Omicron curve is nevertheless pointing steeply upwards here as well. In the past seven days alone, the authorities recorded a total of 1,625 new infections with the new Corona mutation throughout the country (as of Dec. 30). The week before, there were just 388 – so case numbers have quadrupled within a week!

As reported, the highly infectious Omicron mutation has already become the dominant variant in Vienna over the Christmas holidays, with the province of Carinthia in last place. However, the number of unreported cases is likely to be significantly higher. This is because only in the federal capital is sufficient sequencing carried out.

This is how the omicron distribution looks by federal state:

➤Burgenland: 36

➤Carinthia: 21

➤Lower Austria: 218

➤Upper Austria: 156

➤Salzburg: 162

➤Styria: 60

➤Tyrol: 164

➤Vorarlberg: 71

➤Vienna: 1,228
