The Corona traffic light remains red for the incidence criterion. The warning system shows yellow for the proportion of intensive care beds occupied by Covid 19 patients: 17.1 percent. It is green for the reproduction rate of 0.65. This means that 100 infected people infect an average of 65 other people. If this value is significantly below 1 in the long term, the pandemic is slowed down. A total of 2928 deaths related to the virus have been recorded since the beginning of the pandemic. The total number of registered infections in the city is 133 391, the number of unreported cases is probably much higher. 125 314 people are considered to have recovered.
