A corona quick test is evaluated.

On weekends, there is usually not so much testing, and late registrations by the health offices are also possible. But the number of vaccinations is also on the rise. 5.9 percent of Berliners have received the first prick, which puts Berlin roughly in line with the national average, according to data released by the Robert Koch Institute on Saturday. 3.4 per cent of the capital's residents have also already received the second dose, which is above average. Per 100,000 inhabitants, 69 people became infected in the past seven days. The figure is rising slowly but steadily. In the range of 50 to 100, the relaxations of public life that the Senate has decided on have endured.
Shopping in previously closed shops, for example, is to be possible from Tuesday with an appointment. For private meetings, two households with a total of five people have been permitted since Sunday, not including children up to 14 years of age. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, 131,974 of the approximately 3.7 million Berliners have contracted the coronavirus. 2894 patients have died in connection with the virus.
