Currently 1455 Covid 19 patients in Berlin clinics

The Corona traffic light remains red for two indicators: The occupancy of intensive care beds with Covid 19 patients continued to rise slightly - to 29.2 percent. And at 197.3, the number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days is still well above the warning value of 30. Only the reproduction rate remains at green: it is at 0.89. Significantly lower values would be needed to slow down the pandemic. According to the situation report, a total of 1455 Covid 19 patients are now being treated in Berlin hospitals, almost 370 of them in intensive care units.
