Samples for corona tests are examined.

According to the health administration, the reproduction value for the last four days was 0.98 on Tuesday - that is the average number of people infected by a person infected with corona. At 2.1 percent, the occupancy rate for intensive care beds is also still in the green zone. However, the number of new infections does not yet give reason to sound the all-clear: per hundred thousand inhabitants, 28.9 people were proven to be infected in the past seven days. The day before, the figure was 28.7. 173 new infections were reported on Tuesday (September 29, 2020). This brings the number to 14,499 corona cases. 12,595 people are considered to have recovered, 138 more than the day before. The number of deaths remains at 228.
The Berlin early warning system for the assessment of the corona situation signals a need for further discussions in the case of two yellow lights. If the so-called Corona traffic light shows double red, the senate sees a need for action. On early Tuesday evening the Berlin Senate wanted to discuss again about stricter rules for the containment of the Corona pandemic.
