Kikilias Praises Greek National Health Agency’s Work at Wednesday Live Briefing

November 25, 2020

ATHENS — The transparency and reliability of official data regarding the coronavirus pandemic is of high significance during the coronavirus pandemic, said Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias at Wednesday's live briefing on the latest facts and figures.

The briefing focused on the work of the National Public Health Organization (EODY), the country's agency responsible for compiling and releasing official data on the pandemic's course, including providing graphs on cases, assessing threat and "issuing safety directives and protocols for the pandemic's management," he noted.

Formerly the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (KEELPNO), EODY was re-established with its current name in October 2019, and is trusted by citizens for its work in analyzing and interpreting data on 52 infectious diseases and conditions, said the minister.

The importance of EODY's service to public health becomes most apparent in times such as the current pandemic, he noted, as the agency's purpose is "to protect public health and support the National Health System (ESY)."
