Once again, a value of the so-called corona traffic lights jumped to red: the reproduction number (R-value) was 1.96 and for the third time in a row a value of 1.2 or higher. This indicates the dynamics of the infection process - and in the last two weeks a significant increase in new infections was observed.

Two of the three Corona traffic light indicators remain in the green zone

However, the number of new infections per week in relation to the number of inhabitants (with 13.55 fewer than 20) and the proportion of places needed in intensive care units for Covid-19 patients (with 3.1 percent well below the limit of 15 percent) are still in the green zone. After the three-part Berlin Corona traffic light rating system, measures must first be discussed and prepared when two of the three indicators are yellow. If two of the three indicators are red, measures to contain the infections must be implemented.
