Corona traffic light back in the green zone
Even though the number of corona infections in Berlin has been rising significantly for some time now, the traffic light of the Senate Health Administration with its three indicators is now showing green again throughout.
A swab is held in an outpatient corona test facility.
According to the Senate Health Administration on Thursday evening (25 June 2020), the number of people infected with Sars-CoV-2 rose by 75 to 8095 compared to the previous day. 135 patients are currently being treated in isolation in hospitals, 34 of them in intensive care. All other patients are isolated at home. The number of coronavirus-related deaths did not change: it remains at 212.
Reproduction rate (R-value) dropped to 0.76 on Thursday
After the reproduction number (R-value) had turned the traffic light to red on Wednesday, it was now 0.76 on Thursday, indicating the dynamics of the infection process and should be below 1.1 if possible. If the value exceeded this threshold three times in a row, yellow would be the result; if it was also higher than 1.2 three times in a row, the traffic light would show red. The number of new infections per week in relation to the number of inhabitants (13.63) and the proportion of places needed in intensive care units for Covid-19 patients (2.7 percent) also remain in the green range.
After the three-part Berlin Corona traffic light rating system, measures must 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.
The popular Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg is getting much bigger. An expansion area on a former industrial estate in the direction of Wedding is to be open to visitors from Friday afternoon.
Two major demonstrations will again draw thousands of people onto the streets of Berlin this weekend.
Der Berliner Senat will auf einer Sondersitzung am heutigen Freitag ein weiteres Hilfsprogramm für die Wirtschaft wegen der Corona-Krise beschließen.
