New virus confirmed at a welfare establishment in Sagamihara with five new infections March 18 at 18:34
A new coronavirus infection was identified last month at a welfare establishment in Sagamihara City, where five new infections, including users, were confirmed. The city is closely investigating the possibility of outbreaks within the facility.
According to Sagamihara City, the newly confirmed infection was at a welfare establishment in the city where infection of male staff in their 20s was confirmed on the 27th of last month.
As a result of the city's inspection of close contacts in the facility, both men were adults and three users, one female, and the staff were men in their 60s living in the city and 70s living in Tokyo. It means that a total of five women were infected.
The female staff is hospitalized, but the three users and the male staff have no symptoms and are not going out.
The establishment has been voluntarily closed since last month's 28th.
Sagamihara City considers that there is a high possibility of outbreaks within the facility, and will investigate in detail the people who have been in close contact with users and staff, but have not disclosed the name of the establishment or the age of the user. Hmm.
