After a rise at the beginning of the week, the value fell again on Tuesday (28 December 2021), according to the latest figures from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). The incidence was 263.1, compared to 278.2 on Monday and 267.9 on Sunday. The value indicates how many new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported in the past seven days. In recent weeks, the trend has been clearly downwards again.
However, the RKI also pointed out on Tuesday that a lower level of testing and reporting activity is to be expected during the holidays and at the turn of the year. The reported data could therefore only provide "an incomplete picture of the epidemiological situation". The Berlin Senate continues to express a similar opinion. How many of the twelve Berlin districts had submitted data at all was still unclear early on Tuesday morning. On Monday, there were only three. "The case numbers presented are therefore of limited significance," it says on the website of the Senate's situation report.
According to the RKI, 2457 new cases were registered in the capital between Monday and Tuesday. This brings the total number of registered infections in Berlin since the beginning of the pandemic to 323,160. There were also five other deaths related to Covid-19, bringing the total number of Berliners who have died from or with the virus since the start of the pandemic to 3996.
