Reports received from all districts

In the past few days, the RKI had always pointed out that a lower level of testing and reporting activity could be assumed over the Christmas holidays and the turn of the year, and that the data therefore only provided an "incomplete picture of the epidemiological situation". This reference no longer existed on Saturday. The corresponding information was also no longer displayed on the pages of the Berlin Senate's situation report on Saturday. Reports from all districts were available.

Four more deaths linked to the coronavirus

According to the RKI, 6060 new infections were registered in Berlin between Friday and Saturday. The total number of all proven infections since the beginning of the pandemic thus rose to 356,659. Four further deaths related to Covid-19 appear in the statistics. This means that since the beginning of the pandemic in Berlin, 4036 people have been proven to have died from or with the virus.
