Over 8100 corona infections in Berlin: traffic light remains green
The number of confirmed corona infections in Berlin on 26 June 2020 increased by 49 to 8144 compared to the previous day.
In the hospitals, 128 patients are currently being treated in isolation, 32 of them in an intensive care unit, the Senate Health Administration announced in the evening. All other patients were isolated in their homes. In connection with the coronavirus, 213 people have died so far. That was one more than until Thursday.
The traffic light rating system with its three indicators used by the health administration as a measure of the pandemic remained green throughout Friday. The reproduction figure (R-value) of 0.48 was once again below Thursday's value (0.76). This indicates the dynamics of the infection and should be below 1.1 if possible.
If the value would exceed this threshold three times in a row, yellow would be the result; if it would also exceed 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 (13.58) and the proportion of places needed in intensive care units for Covid-19 patients (2.6 percent) also remain in the green range.
After the three-part Berlin Corona traffic light, 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 infection must be implemented.
Due to the threat of a fine starting Saturday for violations of the mask obligation in buses and trains, the Berlin public transport company wants to inform its customers even more about the Corona rules.
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.
