The Ministry of Health’s dashboard is operated by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) and can be accessed at the URL covid19-dashboard.ages.at. The dashboard draws its data exclusively from the Epidemiological Population Register (EMS) and is updated once a day at 2:00 p.m. EMS is the official register in which the district authorities and laboratories enter. The Federal Ministry of the Interior collects the figures as part of the coordination of the state crisis and disaster management in the Operations and Coordination Center (EKC) via a video conference; these figures may contain cases that are not yet recorded in the EMS.
