Politicians are currently looking closely at the so-called incidence - the value is also currently being used to discuss whether relaxations are still possible or even have to be withdrawn. In Berlin's Corona traffic light, the incidence is still red, while the so-called R-value remains green. It indicates how many people an infected person infects on average and was 1.06 on Monday (previous day 1.11). The situation of hospitals is still shown as yellow: 15.8 percent of intensive care beds are currently occupied by Covid 19 patients (previous day: 15.0 percent).
