The so-called seven-day incidence has improved further: in the past seven days, an average of 61.3 out of 100,000 people have been infected with the virus. At this point, Berlin's Corona warning traffic light is still unmistakably red; the light would only turn yellow at a value of 30, and green at 20.
The proportion of intensive care beds occupied by Covid 19 patients is 24.1 per cent, according to the situation report. This is below the threshold for a red signal, which is 25. On Monday, the value last moved just above that. Since then, the traffic light has only shown red once. The so-called R-value, which indicates how many others an infected person infects on average, is now 0.77 and thus in the green zone. It must remain permanently well below 1 in order to slow down the infection process.
