Corona incidence in Berlin remains at unchanged level
The corona incidence in Berlin has hardly changed compared to the previous day.
According to the latest figures from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) as of early Wednesday morning (29 December 2021), it was 265.6, compared with 263.1 on Tuesday. The figure indicates how many new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported in the past seven days. In the past weeks, the trend went clearly downwards. As in the previous days, the RKI pointed out that a lower number of tests and reported cases can be assumed at the turn of the year. As a result, the data could only provide "an incomplete picture of the epidemiological situation".
According to the RKI, 2652 new Corona cases were reported in Berlin between Tuesday and Wednesday. The total number since the beginning of the pandemic thus rose to 325,812 Berlin-wide. The statistics record six additional deaths related to Covid-19. The number of Berliners who have died from or with the virus since the beginning of the pandemic has thus risen to 4002.
According to the Senate's official situation report on Wednesday, about one in five of Berlin's intensive care beds is occupied by Corona patients. The rate was 19.7 per cent. On average, 3.2 out of 100,000 people were hospitalised in connection with a covid infection within seven days. However, there was again a reference in the situation report to currently lower testing and reporting figures.
