In the laboratory, swabs from the nasopharynx are tested for the Sars-CoV-2 virus to detect infection.

Berlin is also in the green zone in terms of occupancy rates for intensive care beds. However, the number of new infections has not yet given rise to the all-clear: 26.1 people per hundred thousand inhabitants were infected in the past seven days. On Wednesday, 199 new infections were reported. This brings the number of corona cases to 13,572. 12,000 people are considered to have recovered and the number of deaths remains unchanged at 228.
