Ten new corona infections in Berlin
The increase of confirmed corona infections in Berlin within one day has slowed down and amounted to ten on Sunday, bringing the total to 9697 cases.

The hospital currently treats 36 patients, 14 of whom are in intensive care, which means that both numbers have declined somewhat. The Senate Administration for Health announced the latest status on Sunday evening (09 August 2020). In connection with Covid-19, 224 people have died since March, the same number as the previous days. 8936 infected persons have recovered in the meantime. 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. The so-called R-value is currently 1.21 and thus above the critical threshold of 1.1. If it were to reach or exceed this figure three times in a row, the traffic light would turn yellow. This could already be the case on Monday.
The number of new infections per week per 100 000 inhabitants is reported to remain unchanged at 8.8 - well below the critical level of 20 or more per 100 000 inhabitants per week. The proportion of intensive care unit places needed for Covid-19 patients currently reaches 1.1 percent, with the yellow area starting at 15 percent and 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 infections must be implemented. Among the districts, Mitte continues to have the highest number of confirmed infections with sars-CoV-2 (1456), followed by Neukölln (1194) and Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf (969).
In Berlin, bar visitors who may have been infected with the corona virus are once again being publicly sought.
The Covid-19 test station at the Central Bus Station (ZOB) in Berlin has started operation. Since Monday, returning passengers have had the opportunity to be tested for Covid-19 there.
