Potsdam (dpa / bb) - The seven-day incidence of new corona infections has fallen further in Brandenburg and was currently 89.1 on Sunday.

As the Ministry of Health also announced, there were 257 new cases within one day, up from 333 the previous day.

If the incidence - the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week - remains stable below 100 across the country, the state government wants to reopen cafes and restaurants in the open from Whitsun.

Openings for culture, sport and tourism are also possible.

The cabinet wants to discuss this on Tuesday.

If the opening for outdoor catering does not apply in counties or urban districts with a seven-day incidence of over 100, beer or coffee in the open - under the current conditions - would still be taboo in 7 of the 18 rural districts and urban districts.

The highest incidence values ​​were recorded on Sunday in the districts of Elbe-Elster with 141.4 and Spree-Neisse with 124.9.

The city of Cottbus wants to reopen all schools for alternating classes next Monday and go into regular operation at daycare centers, after the number of infections has been below the 165 mark since April 30th.

The federal emergency brake only provides for schools and daycare centers to be closed from this incidence value.
