More and more people have to be treated in hospitals due to Corona infection. The Corona burden in Viennese hospitals is increasing.
Due to fewer tests, current Corona numbers are less meaningful, experts say. The number of new infections in Vienna has been high for two weeks.
High Corona load in Vienna’s hospitals
A month ago, there were 17 Corona patients in intensive care units in Vienna’s hospitals and 120 in regular wards. One month later, there are still 17 patients in intensive care units, but there are already 292 in the regular wards.
The Covid Forecast Consortium suggests a stronger focus on hospital occupancy. Indeed, Vienna’s hospitals are predicted to see an increase over the next two weeks. Occupancy in Vienna could rise to 22-43 corona intensive care patients.
