663 New corona infections: Incidence slightly lower
The seven-day incidence rate in Berlin has fallen slightly for the first time in a week, but remains well above the critical mark of 100.
On Tuesday (30 March 2021), the number of infected people per 100 000 inhabitants in the past seven days was 142.4, according to the health administration's situation report. The previous day, the figure was 146.4. 663 new infections were reported. This brings the number of infected persons to 145,249 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.
Since last Tuesday (incidence 102.3), the incidence has been above 100 without interruption and had risen daily until Monday. The highest value is still in the district of Neukölln with 191 (previous day 211.3). Four new deaths related to the coronavirus were reported. The number of people who died thus rose to 3047. 133 313 people are considered to have recovered.
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 1.03. The R-value indicates how many people an infected person infects on average. 18.9 per cent of intensive care beds are occupied by Covid 19 patients, slightly more than the previous day (17.8 per cent). The Berlin traffic light continues to show yellow here. The critical limit is defined at 25 percent in Berlin.
