Austria has had more than 20,000 covid deaths since the pandemic began.
According to AGES, the number of Corona deaths exceeded 20,000 on Tuesday. Since the start of the pandemic, 20,010 people in Austria have died from or with Covid-19.
Figures from the Ministry of Health and Interior had reported 18,738 Corona deaths in the morning. About nine weeks ago, thousands of deaths were subsequently reported by the Ministry of Health, but these are still not fully reflected in the provincial figures.
In the past 24 hours, 7,281 new infections with the coronavirus have been added, according to figures from the Ministry of Health and Interior (as of 9:30 a.m. Tuesday), significantly more than the average of 6,133 infections per day over the past seven days. The seven-day incidence per 100,000 population is already 478.1.
On Tuesday of the previous week, more than 3,000 fewer new infections had been reported, at 4,242. The negative trend can also be seen in the development of active cases of infection with SARS-CoV-2. As of Tuesday, 64,765 cases were involved, up 3,421 from Monday. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been 4,341,493 confirmed cases in Austria, and 4,257,990 people have since been reported as recovered. Within the past 24 hours, 3,854 were reported as recovered. Six deaths from or with Covid-19 occurred in the past 24 hours. The seven-day average was 4.6 Covid deaths per day.

The number of Covid-19 hospital patients is also on the rise again. Six hundred twenty-four people were in hospitals with Corona illness Tuesday, up 37 from Monday. Of those, 41 were treated in intensive care units, up to five from Monday and down two from a week ago.
In the past 24 hours, 175,051 PCR and rapid antigen tests were reported. Of those, just under half – 84,302 – were meaningful PCR tests. The positive rate of PCR tests was 8.6 percent. This 24-hour figure was higher than the average for the previous week (an average of 7.5 percent of PCR tests positive).
