The Corona traffic light remains green for all three indicators. According to the traffic light rating 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 infections must be implemented. The development of the reproductive rate (currently 1.07), the number of cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants (14.3) and the utilisation of intensive care beds with Covid-19 cases (1.1 per cent) will be examined. In particular, the weekly number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants has increased in recent weeks: from 3.5 to 14.3.
