Austria reported a new daily record of 8,241 new coronavirus infections on Saturday, according to data on the country's interior ministry website.
In total, 147,220 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Austria since the start of the pandemic, and 1,377 people have died.
Austria entered its second national lockdown this week, with new measures including a curfew between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. and the closure of leisure and culture facilities.
Fearing all of its intensive care beds could be full by mid-November, France implemented nationwide restrictions at the end of October -- as did Belgium and Ireland. Germany's softer, so-called "lockdown light" restrictions began on Monday, and Austria followed suit on Tuesday.
