Corona incidence for Berlin at 179.6


The seven-day incidence for monitoring the Corona pandemic was given by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Wednesday as 179.6 for Berlin.

This is according to figures from the RKI dashboard from early this morning. A week ago, the incidence had been around 250, on Tuesday after the long holiday weekend around 189. Nationwide, the value on Wednesday was given as 207.0.

Incidence does not provide a complete picture

However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. For some time, experts have been assuming a high number of cases not recorded by the RKI - due to overburdened health offices and because not all infected persons have a PCR test done. Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics. In addition, subsequent reports or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values.

1742 new infections registered

According to the RKI, 1742 new infections were reported for Berlin within one day. The total number of registered cases has risen to more than 1,050,000 since the start of the pandemic in spring 2020. One additional death was reported. According to the official figures, there have thus been 4613 deaths related to Corona infections in Berlin since the start of the pandemic.
