Coronavirus incidence in Berlin over 250 again
The incidence of Covid-19 in Berlin is rising again.
Highest incidence in Marzahn-Hellersdorf
Berlin-wide, the highest incidence was recorded in the district of Marzahn-Hellersdorf; here the value was at 387.5. The districts of Mitte and Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, on the other hand, were able to show comparatively low incidence values of 171 and 172.
Statistics only record positive PCR tests
However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts assume that there is a high number of cases not recorded by the RKI - mainly because not all infected persons have a PCR test. Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics.
