38 people are treated in hospital, 20 of them in an intensive care unit. One death was not added. So far 221 people infected with sars-CoV-2 have died in Berlin. 8283 people are considered to have recovered after surviving the infection. All three indicators of the so-called Corona traffic lights are still green. The reproduction rate - one of the three indicators - was 1.13 on Monday (previous day: 1.04). This shows the dynamics of the infection process. Other indicators of the traffic light are the number of new infections and the number of places needed for Covid-19 patients in intensive care units.
