After the value fell significantly for some time, the trend recently reversed again. The corresponding Corona traffic light thus remains red. It would only change to yellow at a value of 30, to green at 20. 311 new infections were counted in Berlin on Saturday. The day before, 497 new cases had been registered. Since the beginning of the pandemic a year ago, 129,254 people have fallen ill, according to the situation report, of whom 120,863 are considered to have recovered. 2818 Berliners have already died in connection with a coronavirus infection, including 4 new deaths reported on Saturday.

The Berlin Corona traffic light is still yellow for the proportion of intensive care beds occupied by Covid 19 patients. However, the share has decreased and is currently 17.8 percent (previous day 18.1 percent). At 25 per cent, the traffic light would jump to red. The so-called R-value, which indicates how many people an infected person infects on average, was 0.90 on Saturday (compared to 0.92 on Friday). To slow down the pandemic, the value must be significantly lower than 1.
