The target in Germany is to achieve less than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days. The Corona traffic light continues to show red for the 7-day incidence - as well as for the occupancy of intensive care beds with Covid 19 patients (30.4 percent). For the reproduction rate (R-value), the traffic light remains green. According to Tuesday's figures, the R-value fell to 0.92. It describes how many people an infected person infects on average. To slow down the pandemic, this value must be significantly lower than 1.
