Within one day, 81 new infections were reported, compared to 178 on Sunday. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 3704 people have died in Berlin in connection with Covid-19. In Monday, no new deaths were registered for the second day in a row. However, new infections are not always reported over the weekend and at the beginning of a new week.
The incidence value is only one way to assess the development in the pandemic. The Coronavirus traffic light, a warning light system established by the Berlin Senate, showed red on Monday. The occupancy of intensive care beds with Covid-19 patients was last assessed with yellow, the so-called hospitalization incidence with green. The latter indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants were hospitalized within a week after a Covid-q9 infection. About two-thirds of Berliners are fully vaccinated against the virus, according to the health administration.
