Berlin-wide Coronavirus incidence rate of 288


The seven-day incidence of Coronavirus infections was at 288 in Berlin on Thursday.

This was announced by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). The number of officially registered new infections per 100,000 people in seven days for the whole of Germany was given by the RKI at around 462. The values in Berlin have been at about this level for some time. In some other federal states and on average throughout Germany, there has been an increase.

High number of unreported cases

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 by far not all infected persons have a PCR test. Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics.

Over 3700 new infections

According to the RKI data, 3706 new infections were reported for Berlin within one day. This brings the total number of cases registered since the start of the pandemic in spring 2020 to around 1,275,000. One new death was registered. According to official statistics, there have been a total of 4839 deaths related to Corona infections in Berlin so far.
