Not all health offices provide daily reports
However, experts assume that many Coronavirus cases are not recorded because positive rapid tests are not always followed by a PCR test. Only these are counted in the statistics. In addition, not all health offices in Berlin report their data on a daily basis; especially on weekends and at the beginning of the week, there may be delays.
