Coronavirus incidence in Berlin continues to fall
The trend continues: Berlin's Coronavirus incidence has been falling for several days. The incidence was at 415.4 on Tuesday.
Experts suspect high number of unrecorded cases
However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts continue to assume a high number of cases not recorded by the RKI - especially because by far not all infected persons have a PCR test done. Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics.
