According to the experts of the Covid forecasting consortium, the fifth wave has begun. Due to the dominance of the Omicron virus variant, which has now also reached Austria, the panel assumes in its current calculation that there will be a strong acceleration in the number of infections, which will lead to an increase in the number of Covid 19 patients in normal wards in hospitals. Up to 17,000 new infections are expected in the coming week.

Next Wednesday (January 12), according to the experts’ calculations, there will certainly be more than 10,000 new infections within 24 hours. With high probability it will be more than 13,000, as a mean value 13,070 are assumed. In the worst case, there could be more than 17,000 new cases within a day.

What these numbers mean for hospitals is still unclear. In this context, the forecasting consortium refers to “considerable uncertainties regarding the extent of the reduction in virulence of the omicron variant.”
