All Corona traffic lights remain green

According to the traffic light system, measures should 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 should be implemented. The development of the reproductive rate (currently 0.95), the number of cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants (10.2) and the occupancy rate of intensive care beds with Covid-19 cases (1.1 per cent) are considered. The weekly number of cases has risen mainly due to the increased testing of travel returnees, it was reported.
