Salzburg is again a corona high risk zone. The traffic light commission switched the state to red on Thursday afternoon.
Salzburg was rated red again by the traffic light commission. That means very high risk. The two westernmost federal states Vorarlberg and Tyrol as well as Vienna and Burgenland in the far east were rated by the traffic light commission according to APA information in the yellow zone with medium risk. The rest of the country is at high risk, which is shown in orange.
Highest number of cases in Braunau, among others
The highest current risk figure, which decides on the classification, has Salzburg with 103.1. With this, Salzburg just slipped into the very high risk sector. An application by the state for orange remained in the minority. Upper Austria is only slightly better with 97.3. Burgenland currently has the best value with 38.1. Lower Austria is switching from medium to high risk this week. In return, Vorarlberg, Tyrol and Vienna are improving in the other direction.
Salzburg also had the worst values in the past week for the raw and risk-adjusted number of cases, which cover additional risks. The lowest incidences were in Vorarlberg. In addition to the Ländle, only Vienna has a sustainable 14-day trend. It went up in Burgenland, Styria, Upper Austria and Salzburg.
The highest number of cases has recently been recorded in Halle in connection with Braunau and Scheibbs. All three districts had repeatedly become conspicuous in the corona pandemic. When it comes to the risk-adjusted incidence, Tamsweg im Lungau is the lone leader with 720. In the Vorarlberg test region, all districts are below the incidence of 100 in both assessments. This means that the “Ländle” also remains a test region for schools where tests are no longer necessary. In the other federal states everything remains the same.
Burgenland: No corona intensive care patients
As far as the surface of the intensive care units is concerned, Vienna has the highest value both currently and in the forecast. The number of corona intensive care patients in Burgenland was most recently exactly zero. The trend towards new infections among the younger generations, who are particularly at risk, is less positive. Among the over-65s, Austria grew by 20.3 percent.
There isn’t much new to testing activity. The Viennese had by far the most last week, and the Tyroleans, as is now customary, the least likely to die. The fact that the mostly asymptotic cases (48 percent) were registered in the federal capital, given the diligent test, little in the short term. The national average is 33 percent. Vienna can also claim the second-best value behind Burgenland in the case of serene happy people.
The traffic light commission in its weekly broadcast states that Austria is still below average in terms of vaccination coverage compared to Western Europe: the committee points out the need for follow-up vaccinations. The determined different vaccine effectiveness of different manufacturers, this applies in particular to the exact second vaccination in people vaccinated with Janssen vaccine (Johnson & Johnson).
