The National Registry for Covid-19 can always be consulted by scientists, and claims about parallel systems of registration “belong to some people’s imagination,” government spokesman Stelios Petsas said on Sunday, responding to press reports.

According to two Sunday newspapers, the second system of registration was initiated by the National Public Health Organization (EODY) and led to numbers of infections not reflecting what was happening at hospitals. EODY is responsible for issuing the daily statistics of infections, intubations and deaths.

“There is a system to registering cases, the National Registry for Covid-19, and it always lies at the disposal of scientists,” Petsas said. “The idea about parallel systems and a second way of registration only exists in some people’s imagination,” he stressed.

EODY, he noted, has been at the forefront of the pandemic from the start and all Greeks see its staff working systematically and endlessly. It’s based on its daily data on infections that the specialists talk and issue decisions. “This is the reality. Anything else undermines the joint effort made by all of us,” the spokesman said.
