Berlin – According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the seven-day incidence in Berlin has risen just above the jump mark of 100 with a value of 100.8. So there is no easing for the time being!
On Monday morning, the value in the RKI dashboard was given as 100.8. On Friday (98.6) and Saturday (97.0) the values slipped below the 100 mark for the first time in a long time. The number indicates how many new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants were recorded in the past seven days.
Only if the value remains below 100 for five consecutive days will stricter measures in accordance with the “Federal Emergency Brake” be relaxed again.
The Senate’s management report on the current Corona numbers should be published in the morning. There have been deviations from the RKI dashboard for some numbers in the past few days.
Hope in Brandenburg
In Brandenburg, on the other hand, the incidence continues to drop slightly to 88.1. In Potsdam, however, the incidence continues to rise steeply to 127, contrary to the state and federal trend. This puts the Brandenburg capital in second place behind the hotspot Elbe-Elster-Kreis (143). In the entire state, however, the value fell to 88. Ostprignitz-Ruppin and Brandenburg / Havel are even below 50.
The state government is planning to allow outdoor catering, events and tourism again from Whit Saturday (May 22nd). There are also model projects with shopping, sports events and concerts in districts that are under 100 for at least 14 days. On Tuesday, the ministers want to discuss the country’s new corona regulation.
► In Germany, the number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants according to the RKI on Monday morning was 119.1 (previous day: 118.6; previous week: 146.9).
