The Robert Koch Institute gave the value for all of Germany as 65.4. Within 24 hours, the health offices of the districts reported 489 new cases (Wednesday of the previous week: 447) and 16 additional deaths, according to the situation report. Tempelhof-Schöneberg currently has the highest number of cases within seven days in relation to the number of inhabitants, ahead of Neukölln and Reinickendorf.
The Corona traffic light remains red for the incidence criterion. The warning system shows yellow for the proportion of intensive care beds occupied by Covid 19 patients: currently 17.5 percent. The reproduction rate is green at 0.72. This means that 100 infected people infect an average of 72 other people. If this value is significantly below 1 in the long term, the pandemic is slowed down. A total of 2918 deaths related to the virus have been recorded since the beginning of the pandemic. The total number of registered infections in the city is 132 838; the number of unreported cases is probably much higher. 124 886 people are considered to have recovered.
