Within 24 hours, 45 new deaths were reported. Most deaths have so far occurred in the age group from 80 to 89 years (787 cases). The number of registered new infections decreased slightly to 990. A total of 111,737 people were infected, of whom 93,262 are considered to have recovered.
Accordingly, the so-called 7-day incidence recorded a decline at a high level. The value is now 178.1. The highest value was in the district of Pankow (227.4), the lowest in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg (124.0). The day before, there were 194.7 new cases of infection per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days. However, the Berlin Corona traffic light continues to show red.
The traffic light also remains red for the utilisation of intensive care beds at 32.5 per cent. The Berlin traffic light remained green for the so-called reproduction figure (R-value). At the beginning of the week it was still red. The R-value on Friday was 0.86. It describes how many people an infected person infects on average. To slow down the pandemic, the value must be significantly lower than 1.
