55 more deaths in Berlin

A strict ban on visiting the Charité is now also in force from Thursday, with a few exceptions for young patients and the seriously ill. To contain the Corona pandemic, public life in Berlin remains largely shut down for the time being. On Wednesday, 55 more deaths were registered. The total number of people who have died in Berlin since the start of the pandemic is now 1445, all verifiably linked to Covid-19. Meanwhile, almost a fifth (18.7 per cent) of PCR tests for the virus are positive. This is the highest figure since the beginning of the pandemic. However, only people with severe symptoms are still being tested.
