In Salzburg, new coronavirus infections were recorded today at 2,473. 211 patients are treated in the hospitals, 31 people are in intensive care units. “Overall, there are still no signs of relaxation in any of the data,” said Gernot Filipp, head of state statistics, in a broadcast on Thursday.
In Salzburg, 119 out of 119 municipalities are currently affected. So far there have been 30 cases related to Covid-19 in November. The vaccination coverage rate is still only around 62 percent. These are the key dates on the day on which the federal states of Salzburg and Upper Austria decided to go into a lockdown for everyone.
Corona: Incidence in unvaccinated people at 3,480
The incidence in the unvaccinated people is currently 3,480 and in the vaccinated 980. 77 percent of Covid patients in the normal ward and 44 percent in the intensive care unit are over 65 years old, ”said Filipp.
Low vaccination rate, high incidence
“It’s very simple: the higher the vaccination rate, the lower the incidence and vice versa. This connection has intensified in the past few weeks, ”said Filipp. Nevertheless, despite the vaccination breakthroughs, according to state statistics, the proportion of new infections is currently around 36 percent. “And about two thirds happen four to five months after the last vaccination. As a statistician, I can therefore prove that the booster vaccination is very important in addition to increasing the vaccination rate ”, says Filipp.
