The situation remains tense with regard to the occupancy of intensive care beds with Covid patients. The occupancy rate was 34.6 per cent (previous day 35.2 per cent). The Senate's Corona traffic light thus continues to point to red. The limit of 25 per cent has been exceeded for weeks. The so-called seven-day incidence in Berlin is currently 139.6. Here, too, the Berlin traffic light continues to point to red. The value indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants have been infected in the past seven days. The highest incidence was in the district of Spandau with 182.3.
