Test sets with swabs are stored in a test centre for suspected cases of corona.

From Friday to Saturday the number of confirmed cases had increased by 20. In connection with Covid-19, 217 people died in Berlin since March, according to the data - that means that there has been no further reported death since Saturday. 7995 infected persons have recovered in the meantime. According to the health administration, the Corona traffic light is still green for all three indicators.

Reproduction rate still well below the limit of 1.1

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. The so-called R-value on Sunday was 0.80. It was thus higher than on Saturday, but still well below the threshold of 1.1, from which the traffic light would turn yellow if it was reached or exceeded three times in a row.

All data of the Corona traffic lights in the green area

The number of new infections per week per 100 000 inhabitants remains at 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 1.2 percent; here the yellow range starts at 15 percent and is rising.

Most confirmed infections in Mitte, Neukölln and Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf

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 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).
