SYRIZA Spokesman Blasts Gov’t Over Reports of “Misleading EODY Numbers”

November 29, 2020

ATHENS — SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesman Nassos Iliopoulos called for an investigation of claims by two Sunday newspapers that the National Public Health Organization (EODY) used a double system of registering SARS-CoV-2 cases in Greece, resulting in wrong data.

"Today's charges by newspapers 'Vima' and 'Dimokratia' need to be investigated at all levels," he said. "The government knew that EODY used a parallel system of [infection case] registrations, resulting in the wrong recording of infection rates."

As he noted, the committee of infectious diseases specialists at the Health ministry – responsible for recommendations on measures to fight the pandemic – "makes critical decisions for our lives, without having access to real facts." Iliopoulos called for the publication of the health committee's minutes, saying that "the government has been refusing to provide in the last six months," reiterating that the government "cannot handle even the basics" and charging Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis with "criminal responsibilities."

In a statement on Sunday, EODY denied the reports as "figments of a sick imagination" and said its data was reliable.


ATHENS - The draft tax bill constitutes "an important reform for social justice," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Wednesday in Parliament, during the debate on the finance ministry's bill "Measures to limit tax evasion.
