Note:

The figures mentioned in the announcement are indicative and may vary based on the final and up-to-date data sent in the context of the National Epidemiological Risk Report published every second Friday.

The change in the way daily results are announced has a dual purpose.

On the one hand, the way in which the results were announced on a daily basis is simplified, so that they can be more easily understood by the media officials and the citizens. will be given in total for all hospitals) which is not considered necessary as it does not provide essential information regarding the course and monitoring of the pandemic.

On the other hand, the examinations carried out per category of the population are grouped, in order to draw more correct conclusions at a scientific level as well.

For example, the severity of the results and the rate of positivity through the tracking process is different from the severity of the results performed daily and concerning people who need a negative result for SafePass purposes.

In the same way, the percentage of positivity from the tests carried out in the schools, is of different weight from the rest, respectively, since through this, the situation in the school units can be more correctly monitored.

Based on this philosophy, it was deemed necessary to change the way the results are announced daily. It is emphasized that then and depending on the data that emerge per phase of the pandemic, further changes and adjustments may be made.
