A virologist examines samples for the coronavirus.

This is stated in the health administration's situation report of September 18, 2020. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 12,918 infections with Sars-CoV-2 have been recorded in the capital. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg explained that the current high number of cases in the district is often due to young people celebrating. Clubs, illegal raves and private celebrations were named as places of infection.
In total, 227 Berliners have died in connection with the coronavirus since the spring. More than 11,600 people are considered to have recovered. With the Corona traffic light decided by the senate all three indicators (reproduction number, new infections per 100,000 inhabitants/week and utilization of the intensive care beds) are still green.
