There were 422 registered deaths on November 19, 2020, compared to 527 on Thursday (November 26, 2020), according to the Senate's current status report. Since Wednesday alone, there have been 19 more deaths.

Occupancy rate of intensive care beds remains high

At 24.2 percent, the occupancy rate of intensive care beds in the capital with Covid-19 patients is still close to the critical threshold of 25 percent. The Corona traffic light thus remains deep yellow in this area. A total of 305 Covid-19 patients were treated in intensive care units throughout the city on Thursday, 250 of them on artificial respiration.

Seven-day incidence continues to decline slightly

The Corona traffic light continues to show a deep red color in the so-called seven-day incidence: In the past seven days, 215 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported. As critical mark 50 new infections are considered here - Berlin lies thereby still far over it. Compared to the previous week, however, this figure has fallen by six percent.

The traffic light is green only for the R-value of 0.77. It indicates how many other people an infected person infects on average. This figure has also fallen slightly - the previous day it was 0.81.

1110 new corona infections on Thursday

The number of new infections increased by 1110 on Thursday, which was 520 fewer new cases than the day before. However, the data may also vary depending on the reports from the health authorities. Since the outbreak of the pandemic in Berlin, 61,664 people have been infected. A total of 39,578 people are now considered to have recovered.
