Corona Virus#

compiled by Hermann Maurer, but no responsibility is accepted.

This site monitors the virus as part of Worldometers in the geography section of Austria-Forum, more the part in specifically the Corona- Section.

  • However, before you get too scared by the figures consider also the following facts: Up to now (March 1, 2020), we have about 88.000 people with coronavirus infections; of those about 3.000 have died, but 43.000 have recovered and most of the others do not have life endangering symptoms. Compare this with the seasonal death of more than 80.000 people due to influenca, i.e. more than 25 times more than due to Corona virus, so far. However, don't be fooled: We have seen only the tip of the iceberg of how dangerous Corona is, as the report below shows.

Also note that all number that follow are rounded, and many are obsolete within hours. This report is usually compiled during some time in the European afternoon. But to see how fast dramatic changes happen, look at the figures of persons who have died of Corona infection March 19 around 3 pm: 6.500. But later that very day the figues was already 9.000, and has exceeded 10.000 by morning of March 20. Note further, that many reports are erroneous, be it on purpose or because not enough Corona testing is possible everywhere, let alone in some medically lesser developed countries. Putting it differently, if we look at the over 451.000 known persons who have or have had Corona infections today (March 27) well between one million and four million are infected, and most are not even aware of it, but are already contagious, and hence present a real threat.

Situation March 1, 2020:

Up to now, we have had about 88.000 people with coronavirus infections; of those about 3.000 have died, but 43.000 have recovered and most of the others do not have life endangering symptoms.

Situation in Austria, March 31 (No responsibilities for errors accepted):#

Some 10.100 persons have been or are infected. Up to now, 128 have died but 1.100 have totally recovered. Schools and universities are closed including all shops except for those essential for living (food, pharmacies, drugstores, banks, post offices,..). Not more than 5 persons are allowed to congregate. All restaurants in Austria are closed, people are allowed to only leave their homes for three reasons: to buy necessary supplies, to help others, or because their travel is connected to their work or with important tasks for the general public. Otherwise, people have to stay home. They are still allowed in their garden or on a small walk, if the group they are with consists only of persons living in the same household. Air travel of persons to and from all countries has been more or less terminated. The borders to all countries bordering Austria are basically closed for personal traffic, with various degrees of enforcement, but open for large commercial transport. All hotels are closed for tourists, and villages in Tyrol are under quarantine. To visit in such an area another village is only allowed if some basics (food, medication,...) cannot be bought in the village at issue.

Current restrictive rules have been prolonged till at least April 13, and it is likely that the situation will continue at tealst till May.

  • The total number of people who have died of Corona infections sind the beginning of the year till end of March is now is 41.000. Last day, almost 3.000 died. Compared with some 90.000 persons dieing of influenca in the first part of each year there are some voices that say: If the virus would not have been detected, we would treat the current situation like a case of serious annual flue, hence most or all retrictions are really completely superfluous, since even hospitalization does not really help in the absence of truly effective medication. In German a clip (37:00) very much in this direction is. I have sent it to a number of top medical persons for comments. Two doctors consider the video a stupidity, one senior medical officer does not support it but does not completely condem it either.
  • With 176.000 infections the US is now the country with the largest number of confirmed cases. Italy is second (with 106.000), yet the fact 840 people died in Italy within one day is scary , and except for Spain (550 died), no other country has lost more than 400 people in each of the last two days
