According to the current values of all three indicators, the Corona traffic light is now back to green. The reproduction figure fell to 1.09 and thus below the critical threshold of 1.1, so the corona traffic light is no longer yellow for this criterion. The so-called R-value indicates how many people an infected person infects on average under the current conditions. The majority of infected persons are female, it was said (4994 cases). In addition, 4854 men were affected. The sex of two persons was not transmitted.
According to the information provided, 34 patients are isolated and treated in hospital, 14 of them intensive care. The others are quarantined at home. 224 people have died of the novel virus so far, most of them between 80 and 89 years of age (83 deaths). According to the figures, there have still been no new deaths.
In addition to the reproduction rate, the traffic light shows new infections and the required places for Covid-19 patients in intensive care units. The number of new infections per week per 100,000 inhabitants is reported to be 10.1, 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; here the yellow area starts at 15 percent and increases. If two out of three indicators are red, measures to contain the infections should be implemented.
