The British coronavirus mutation could have arrived in Upper Austria. The country’s crisis team revised the first information in the evening, according to which there are already three confirmed cases. Contrary to this information from Thursday noon, there are not three confirmed, but only two suspected cases. According to initial information, these are two people from the Braunau district.
Although the mutation is not considered more dangerous, it is much more contagious than the previously known corona virus.
According to the Ministry of Health, there were 70 suspected cases in connection with the mutation across Austria as of Wednesday afternoon.
Suspected cases in Bad Aussee
In addition to the already known cases in Vienna, Tyrol and Burgenland, twelve suspected cases have now also occurred in two family clusters in Bad Aussee and Tauplitz in Styria, reports the Kleine Zeitung. The investigations are ongoing.
In Lower Austria, there is a specific suspicion of a coronavirus mutation in one case. As a spokesman for Health Councilor Ulrike Königsberger-Ludwig (SPÖ) announced, the person affected is a woman from the central area of the country. A pre-test was positive, the sample is now at AGES. Sequencing studies would be conducted. A result can be expected in the coming days, the spokesman emphasized.
Jochberg: No evidence of mutation
After 17 suspected cases of the British coronavirus mutation became known, there is apparently no evidence of a virus mutation among the population of the Tyrolean town of Jochberg. Three of the four positive PCR test results had no abnormalities in the profile that indicate the mutated virus, the country said on Thursday. It was said that there was only suspicion of the British mutation in the case of an already isolated, close contact.
“According to the current status of the surveys in the course of contact tracing, the affected group had no contact with the population,” explained the head of the Corona task force, Elmar Rizolli.
The 17 suspected cases involve twelve British people, plus one person each with Irish, Estonian, Icelandic, Spanish and Dutch citizenship. All were registered in the staff accommodation in Jochberg.
The population of the place had undergone the tests in large numbers in the past two days.
