Another 39 people died with a Corona infection. The number of dead since the beginning of the pandemic is thus 1105. A total of just under 70,000 people are considered to have recovered. The Senate's Corona traffic light remains red twice: for the utilisation of intensive care beds with Covid 19 patients (30.4 per cent) and for new infections in the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (277.9). The 4-day R-rate is 0.95. This means that one infected person infects about one other person on average.
