A further 4 deaths were also reported. According to the official figures, there have been 4578 deaths related to Corona infections in Berlin since the start of the pandemic.

Not all Corona cases are registered

However, experts assume that many Corona 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 report their data on a daily basis; especially at the weekend and at the beginning of the week, there can be a delay.
