According to statistics, 43 patients are treated in hospitals, 19 of them in the intensive care unit. 226 Berliners have died in connection with Covid-19 disease since the outbreak of the pandemic. On average, they turned 81 years old. The warning system managed by the Senate continues to display three green lights. When two of the three indicators - reproduction rate, new infections, occupied intensive care beds - are on yellow, measures to contain the infections must be discussed and prepared. As soon as two indicators point to red, measures must be implemented.
