The seven-day incidence in Berlin has risen again. According to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) as of early Friday morning (6 August 2021), the value is 35.0 and thus further above the critical mark of 30.
The day before, it was 32.7. On Wednesday, it was still 29.5. The incidence rate indicates how many infections there have been per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days. Nationwide, it is currently 20.4. However, the significance of the incidence is under discussion. Experts are of the opinion that it changes with increasing vaccination rates. The Berlin thresholds of 20 (yellow traffic light) and 30 (red) were set in 2020.
288 new Corona cases
The situation in the intensive care units of Berlin's hospitals is not yet worrying, according to the Senate's situation report of Thursday. The corresponding signal in the Senate's Corona warning traffic light is still green. The RKI registered 288 new Corona cases in Berlin. The number of people who have verifiably contracted the virus in the capital since the start of the pandemic in spring 2020 has thus risen to 183,872. No further deaths have been reported. So far, 3585 people have died in Berlin in connection with the coronavirus.
