On Monday alone, data from seven districts was missing. According to the latest data provided by the Robert Koch Institute on Tuesday (December 14, 2021), the Coronavirus incidence in Berlin was at 307.8. A week ago, it was at 336.8. The figure indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants have been proven to be newly infected with Coronavirus in the past seven days. For some time, the incidence has been on the decline again - in Berlin and also nationwide.
According to the RKI, 2579 new Covid cases have been registered in Berlin between Monday and Tuesday. Two more people have died from or with the virus. This brought the number of Coronavirus-related deaths since the beginning of the pandemic to 3926, and the total number of proven Covid infections to 300,025.
The burden on intensive care units remains a concern. According to Monday's situation report, twenty-three percent of all intensive care beds were occupied by Covid-19 patients. More current data was not available on Tuesday morning. The Berlin Senate's Coronavirus traffic light continued to show red, indicating an urgent need for action.
