(*) The statistics made by Public Health are entered into the system through the patient’s health cards and not by their place of hospitalization or health control. In addition, for the unification of data to the Ministry of Health, the statistics are sent at 20:00 the day before their publication. On the other hand, the hospital and area managements send data on the health situation in their competences (hospitalized, ICU, discharge, etc.) that must be contrasted with the previous ones because it is also an open and changing statistic at times. For this reason, there may be some lags in the data.
