The corona situation in the hospitals should remain stable in the next two weeks. In terms of infection numbers, the Covid forecast consortium believes that a general “trend reversal towards increasing numbers” is possible within the next seven days, according to the update of the model calculator published on Wednesday. There has recently been a slight increase among five to 14-year-olds, but the number of cases reported has remained stagnant in most age groups.
The experts from TU Vienna, MedUni Vienna and Gesundheit Österreich GmbH (GÖG) explained that both new infections and the wastewater signal are showing an upward trend in some federal states, while the situation in the other federal states is constant. The gradual end to the decline in the reported number of cases and a possibly slowly increasing number of positive tests are partly due to the spread of the new variants, in addition to seasonal effects.
