Vienna has been in a corona-related lockdown since the beginning of April due to the excessive stress on hospitals. Almost three weeks later, the medical crisis team assessed the situation.

“We are cautiously positive about the daily development of the number of new infections. However, one always has to keep an eye on the development in the hospitals, and unfortunately we do not yet see the positive effect that we would like,” said a spokeswoman for the APA on Tuesday.
