Since the middle of last week, the number of infections in Berlin has again been higher than in Germany as a whole: in the past seven days, around 68 people per 100,000 inhabitants were infected with the disease, compared to 65 in Germany as a whole. This figure is decisive for the state's opening strategy. The figure must be below 100 in order to ensure that the relaxation measures, which will take effect next week, will remain in place. Shopping in previously closed shops, for example, will be possible from Tuesday with an appointment. At private meetings, two households with a total of five persons will then be allowed, not including children up to 14 years of age.

There are clear differences between the districts in terms of infections. In Pankow, 37.1 people were infected in the past seven days, in Neukölln 94.9. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, 123,503 of the approximately 3.7 million Berliners have been infected with the coronavirus. 2892 patients have died in connection with the virus. Just under 216,000 people have received the first vaccination dose, and a good 127,500 have also received the necessary second dose.
