The number of deaths related to the virus thus rose to 2021. The so-called 7-day incidence in Berlin continued to fall, according to the situation report. 118.9 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported within one week. On Thursday, the figure was 128, on Wednesday 136.6. The target in Germany is to reach less than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days.
The Corona traffic light continues to show red for the 7-day incidence - as well as for the occupancy of intensive care beds with Covid 19 patients (30.5 percent). For the reproduction rate (R-value), the traffic light remains green. According to Friday's figures, the R-value rose slightly to 0.76. On Thursday, it was 0.73. The value describes how many people an infected person infects on average. To slow down the pandemic, this value must be significantly lower than 1.
The health administration reported 615 more people infected with Corona on Friday, up from 901 on Thursday. A total of 116,132 people have been reported infected in Berlin so far, of which 99,898 are considered recovered.
