The previous day, the value was still at 118.2. Since the beginning of the pandemic, a total of 142 007 infections were registered in Berlin. That was 1006 more than the previous day.
130,911 people are now considered recovered (plus 506). Three new deaths following Corona infection have been recorded. The number of people who have died has thus risen to 3026.

The Berlin Corona traffic light continues to show red for incidence. In terms of the so-called R-value, it remains in the green zone at 0.86. The R-value indicates how many people an infected person infects on average. Values above 1 can make it more difficult for the pandemic to subside.

The hospitals' situation continues to be indicated by yellow: 17.1 percent of intensive care beds are currently occupied by Covid 19 patients. The critical limit is defined at 25 percent in Berlin.
