According to the figures of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the value on Monday (27 December 2021) was 278.2. The previous day, it was 267.9. The value indicates how many new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported in the past seven days. Most recently, the trend was clearly downwards again.
However, both the RKI and the Berlin Senate explicitly pointed out that during the holidays and at the turn of the year, a lower level of testing and reporting activity is to be expected. The reported data could therefore only provide "an incomplete picture of the epidemiological situation". Of the twelve Berlin districts, only three had reported any infection figures at all on Monday. Over the holidays, the data situation was similarly thin. "The case numbers presented are therefore of limited significance," it said again on Monday.
According to the report, 646 new infections were registered in the districts of Neukölln, Reinickendorf and Spandau between Sunday and Monday, most of them in Neukölln. No reports were available for all other districts. This brings the total number of registered infections in Berlin since the beginning of the pandemic to 320,692. There were also three other deaths related to Covid-19, bringing the total number of Berliners who have died from or with the virus since the pandemic began to 3991.
