80 new corona infections in Berlin

The number of registered corona infections in Berlin has increased by 80 since Wednesday. One day earlier, the figure was 69, which means that 10,542 cases have been confirmed since spring, according to a statement by the health administration on 20 August 2020. The corona traffic light is still green for all three indicators.

In the hospital 31 people are currently isolated and treated, 15 of them in an intensive care unit. All other infected people are quarantined at home. 226 sick patients have died with a corona infection so far. Most were over 60 years old.
According to the Corona traffic light rating system, measures would have to 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 0.76), the number of cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants (14.4) and the utilisation of intensive care beds with Covid-19 cases (1.2 per cent) are considered.
