The number of registered Corona-infected people since the beginning of the pandemic rose by 550 to 169,565, according to the situation report of the Senate Department of Health. Twelve more people died, bringing the total number of deaths to 3228. The important threshold for the federal emergency brake is the 100 mark. If the value is below this for five days in a row, relaxations of the Corona rules, for example in the retail sector, are possible again. Since the federal emergency brake came into force, the incidence value has been based on the data of the Robert Koch Institute.
The situation in Berlin's intensive care units is almost unchanged: Currently, 26 percent of the intensive care beds are occupied by Covid 19 patients, after 25.8 percent the day before. The critical threshold is 25 percent. Here, as with the seven-day incidence, Berlin is still in the red zone.
