The Corona rest period is over. What the daily infection figures already indicate, can also be read from the Corona traffic light as of today. Even the last three orange spots Styria, Burgenland and Carinthia are colored red, according to the working document of the responsible commission. The Austrian Press Agency published the report. This means there is a very high risk of infection throughout the federal territory.
This range begins from risk number 100. Burgenland has 214, 1,716 in Tirol. That is almost a quadrupling of the risk figure there compared with the previous week. The figure in Salzburg is almost 1,300.
The 14-day trend in infections is upward everywhere, with not a single district spared. The pandemic has taken the worst development in Salzburg with an increase of 155 percent. Comparatively, things look most favorable in Vorarlberg, with an increase of 83 percent. Rather alarmingly, the trend is even more pronounced among the over-65s. Here, the national average increase is almost 294 percent. Overall, however, this age group accounts for only seven percent of cases. The pandemic is currently most widespread in the 12-29 age group, where 34 percent of all infections occurred.
The source of infection can still be clarified in 40 percent of cases. Not even one in four cases detected is asymptomatic (24 percent). For once, the highest number of tests was not carried out in Vienna, but in Vorarlberg in relation to the number of inhabitants. The positive rate rose sharply throughout Austria. While only 0.5 percent of all tests were positive in the last week of 2021, this figure rose to 1.5 percent in the first calendar week of 2022.
