Why the numbers on the dashboard can diverge
The Department of Health dashboard is a dynamic system and gets its data from the Epidemiological Register (EMS). The EMS is the official register in which the district authorities and laboratories enter. According to the Ministry of the Interior, there can be delays in making entries, especially in the morning.
In the Ministry of the Interior, on the other hand, the figures are collected via a video conference as part of the coordination of the state crisis and disaster management in the Operations and Coordination Center (EKC). These figures may include cases that are not yet recorded in the EMS.
