Currently, 3,010 people infected with the Coronavirus are receiving hospital treatment. Of these, 225 are being cared for in intensive care units.

Fewer tests

Since yesterday, 1 April, new testing rules have been in force in Austria. Only five antigens and five PCR tests per person per month are available free of charge with this effective date. However, there are numerous exceptions.

This means that the number of registered tests has dropped again – but it had already dropped on the previous days. The results of 460,485 PCR and antigen rapid tests were documented in the past 24 hours, of which 441,312 were conclusive PCR tests. The positive rate of PCR tests was 4.3 percent. This 24-hour figure is below last week’s average of 6.2 percent.
