On Sunday (10 January 2021), the value in the Senate's status report rose to 190.6. The figure indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants have been infected in the past seven days. Before Christmas, the figure in Berlin had been well over 200 and then dropped. In the meantime, it is again above 200 in five districts. In Spandau it even reaches 300.
The Senate had announced that with such high numbers of infections, it would examine whether a new rule restricting freedom of movement should also apply to the capital, similar to the one in Brandenburg. 340 new cases of corona were reported on Sunday. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the number of infected people has risen to 106,197. Around 86,000 people are considered to have recovered, and around 20,000 are currently infected.
However, fewer new infections are usually recorded or reported on weekends, so the figures are usually too low. Several districts did not forward any figures. The subsequent reports come in the following days.
5 new deaths were reported. This means that 1565 people have died in the capital since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation remains tense with regard to the occupancy of intensive care beds with Covid patients. The occupancy rate was around 33 per cent. The Senate's Corona traffic light continues to show red twice.
