Incidence in Berlin increased slightly to 350
The incidence of Coronavirus in Berlin has risen slightly once again.
On Tuesday (May 10, 2022), the number of detected new infections per 100,000 people within seven days was 350, according to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). The day before, this number was at 337.9. The RKI reported a nationwide incidence of just under 523 on Tuesday.
2797 new infections in one day
2797 new Coronavirus infections were last recorded within one day, according to Tuesday's situation report of the Berlin Senate on Tuesday. This brings the total number of registered infections since the start of the pandemic in spring 2020 to 1,016,756.
Rapid tests often no longer followed by a PCR test
However, experts assume that many cases are not recorded because not all rapid tests are reliable and because positive rapid tests are not always followed by a PCR test. In addition, not all health authorities report their data on a daily basis, which can lead to reporting delays, especially at the weekend and at the beginning of the week.
13 new deaths
According to the statistics, 13 new deaths related to Covid-19 were added. In total, 4525 deaths related to Corona infection have been counted in Berlin since the start of the pandemic.
