Test sets with swabs are in a test centre.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, a total of 141,001 infections have been registered in the city. That was 1268 more than the day before. 130 405 people are now considered recovered (plus 572). 12 more people died after a Corona infection. The number of deaths thus rose to 3 023.
In the Berlin Corona traffic light, the incidence is still red, the so-called R-value is still green. It indicates how many people an infected person infects on average and was 0.90 on Wednesday (previous day 0.97). The situation of the hospitals is still indicated with yellow: 16.8 percent of the intensive care beds are currently occupied by Covid 19 patients. The previous day it was 16.6 percent.
At the moment, politicians are looking closely at the so-called incidence. With a stable incidence of more than 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days, the first relaxations of the past weeks must be reversed.
