  • The registry also records data on vaccination status. Data on the vaccine used can also be recorded.
  • The DEFEAT PANDEMIcs project supported by DeRegCOVID will be completed by the end of this year. An application has been submitted for a follow-on project called the National Autopsy Network (NATON). DeRegCOVID will also serve as the electronic backbone for the NATON project.
  • The project has contributed to the amendment of the Infection Protection Act (Section 25, paragraph (4)). Through this, we hope that the permission of autopsies will be facilitated and that we will be able to react even faster to any coming pandemics.

  • Data on vaccination status
  • Data on virus variants or mutations
