In connection with Covid-19, 217 people are reported to have died since March - one more than on Friday. 7967 infected people have now recovered. The Corona traffic light is still green for all three indicators, according to the health administration.
The indicators are the reproduction rate - which shows the dynamics of the infection process - as well as new infections and the required places for Covid-19 patients in intensive care units. On Saturday, the so-called R-value was 0.67. It is thus well below the threshold of 1.1, above which the traffic light would turn yellow if the number was reached or exceeded three times in a row.
The number of new infections per week per 100 000 inhabitants is 7.1, which is also far from the critical level of 20 and more per 100 000 inhabitants per week. The proportion of intensive care unit places needed for Covid-19 patients currently reaches 1.3 percent; here the yellow range starts at 15 percent and is rising.
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. Among the districts, Mitte continues to have the highest number of confirmed infections with sars-CoV-2 (1267), followed by Neukölln (1064) and Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf (865).
