On Monday, one thousand seven hundred fifty-three new infections were reported in Austria, the lowest number since December 27 of the previous year.
A week ago Monday, there had been 2,658 new cases. The seven-day incidence dropped to 223.1. Five hundred eighty-two people are hospitalized with or because of Corona, down 52 from the previous day. Of these, 52 are being cared for in intensive care units, up to seven since yesterday but down ten in a week.
In terms of new infections, Vienna led with 656, followed by Lower Austria with 391 and Upper Austria with 184. Behind them come Styria (124), Salzburg (115), Carinthia (94), Tyrol (83), Vorarlberg (67) and Burgenland (39).
Nearly 18,600 Austrians have died from Corona
Forty-three thousand two hundred seventy-three active cases are 2,439 fewer than before. Since the pandemic’s beginning, there have been 4,235,183 confirmed cases in Austria. Recovered are 4,173,311, within the past 24 hours, 3,940.
Of the number of deaths, 250 are due to subsequent reporting by the provinces as part of the data reconciliation with the cause of death statistics of Statistics Austria. A total of 18,599 Austrians died from or with Covid-19. However, even before today’s update, the AGES dashboard showed 19,865 deaths related to the pandemic, a difference of 1,266 from the ministry figures.
How many people have died in Austria since the pandemic began thus remains unclear. About a month ago, the Ministry of Health post-reported thousands of covid deaths. They have not yet fully filtered through to the provincial figures. Carinthia, Salzburg, Styria, and Vienna post-reported deaths in April, and data from Lower Austria has now been added on Monday, with the other provinces still pending ministry data.
Thirty-nine thousand eight hundred seventeen tests were reported in the past 24 hours, of which 36,347 were conclusive PCR tests, with a positive rate of 4.8 percent. Eighty-eight vaccinations were administered on Sunday. This means that 5,955,637 people have proper vaccination protection or 66.3 percent of Austrians.
