The day before, the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was 261.4 (previous week: 347.0, previous month according to the Senate situation report: 403.9). Nationwide, the value was given as 307.2.

26 deaths reported

According to the RKI, 2183 new infections were reported. The total number of registered cases has thus increased to 1,041,177 since the beginning of the pandemic in spring 2020. A further 26 other deaths were also reported. According to the official figures, there have been 4,604 deaths in connection with corona infections in Berlin since the beginning of the pandemic.

Experts assume that the number of cases will be higher

However, experts assume that many corona cases are not recorded because positive rapid tests are not always followed by a PCR test. Only these are counted in the statistics. In addition, not all health authorities report their data on a daily basis, especially at the weekend and at the beginning of the week there can be a delay.
