The data presented are derived from the Mandatory Notification System (MNS) of the Hellenic Center for Disease Control and Prevention (HCDCP). Forty-five infectious diseases are included in the list of the mandatory notifiable diseases in Greece. Notification forms and case definitions can be found on HCDCP’s website (www2.keelpno.gr).
It should be noted that the data for September 2011 are provisional and may be slightly modified/corrected in the future. Data interpretation should be made with caution, because there are indications of under-reporting to the system.
