In the laboratory, swabs from the nasopharynx are tested for the Sars CoV-2 virus to detect infection.

After the value had fallen significantly for weeks, the trend reversed again recently. The corresponding Corona traffic light thus remains red. It would only change to yellow at a value of 30, and to green at 20.
The current number of cases has risen to 128,446. 24 more people have also died from or with the virus. The number of deaths since the beginning of the pandemic has risen to 2 805. The Corona traffic light continues to show yellow for the proportion of intensive care beds occupied by Covid 19 patients: it is currently 18.4 percent. The threshold for a red traffic light signal is 25 percent. The reproduction figure, on the other hand, is in the green zone: the so-called R-value, which indicates how many people an infected person infects on average, fell from 0.88 on Wednesday to 0.81.
