BerlinWith the so-called seven-day incidence, Berlin is still very clearly in the red. 163.3 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported within a week, according to the Senate’s situation report on Monday. This is similar to Sunday, when the value was 160.2. The target in Germany is to have fewer than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days.
In Berlin there are still no restrictions on freedom of movement. If the limit of 200 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is exceeded, people should only be allowed to move a maximum of 15 kilometers away from the city limits.
The R-value on Monday was 1.05. It describes how many people an infected person infects on average. In order to slow the pandemic, this value must be significantly less than 1.
