On Thursday, there were 742 new infections, compared to more than 1000 the day before. The number of deaths increased by three. This means that a total of 3213 people have died in Berlin in connection with the Corona pandemic. Since the beginning of the pandemic in spring 2020, the number of infected people in Berlin has grown to 168 459. Of these, 154,947 are now considered to have recovered.
The so-called seven-day incidence has declined somewhat. It describes how many people per 100,000 inhabitants have been infected with the virus in one week. It is 126.1, compared to 130.2 the day before. Since the federal emergency brake came into force, the value is based on the data of the Robert Koch Institute.

In contrast, the load in Berlin's intensive care units remains almost unchanged: Currently, 25.8 percent of the intensive care beds are occupied by Covid 19 patients. The day before, the figure was only slightly higher at 25.9 percent. The critical threshold is 25 percent. There has been slight progress in vaccination: according to the data of the Robert Koch Institute, 24.82 percent of people in Berlin have now been vaccinated at least once, 9.22 percent have already received two vaccinations and thus have full vaccination protection. The values are both slightly above those of the previous day.
