That's how many infections were reported per 100,000 people in seven days. According to the Senate's situation report, the incidence had been at 350 the previous day and at 457.8 a week ago. The RKI reported a nationwide incidence of 507.1 on Wednesday.

More than one million infections since start of the pandemic

Around 3800 new infections were reported for Berlin within one day. Since the beginning of the pandemic in spring 2020, more than one million infections have been reported in the capital.

Many cases not reported

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 weekends and at the beginning of the week.

Three new deaths reported

According to the statistics, three new deaths have also been added. Thus, a total of 4528 deaths related to Corona infections have been counted in Berlin since the beginning of the pandemic.
