In Austria, 2,574 new infections with the corona virus were reported on Monday. 918 corona patients are treated in the hospital, 47 of them in the intensive care unit
2,574 new corona infections were registered on Monday compared to the previous day. That was below a seven-day average of 3,997, according to figures from the Interior and Health Ministries on Monday. According to the Gecko report of September 5, 2022, there are indications of a possible “twindemic” in the fall, meaning a simultaneous occurrence of rising Covid-19 and flu infection numbers. The reason for this is a “lack of mask hygiene”.

Make sure that corona masks are not worn much in autumn 2022
In the past two years, masks have been worn regularly since autumn, which means that cases of corona and flu have hardly occurred. “There is concern that masks will be worn less in the coming fall, so an increase in COVID-19 and influenza numbers can be expected,” the Gecko report said. An example of this is Australia, where the end of winter is currently approaching. The influenza wave there started two months earlier in the autumn, with a higher number of cases and a high burden among children. “Since the flu wave usually begins in Austria at the end of December, it can be assumed that there could be an increase in the number of cases as early as October this year,” the report assumed.
918 corona patients are in the hospitals
The number of hospital patients treated in connection with a Covid infection was 918 on Monday. That was 17 more cases compared to the previous day. 47 people were in the intensive care units with SARS-CoV2. This number remained the same compared to the previous day, but has decreased by 16 cases in a week. The Ministry of the Interior and Health did not report any deaths related to Corona on Monday.
