39 patients are currently being treated in hospital, 20 of them in intensive care. 8356 people are considered to have recovered. The three indicators of the so-called Corona traffic lights are still in the green zone. They are presented to the Senate on a weekly basis. If two of the three values are in yellow, possible measures must be discussed and prepared, according to the Senate 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.
