Tokyo “Medical tightness” also corona new monitoring item June 30 11:55
The new monitoring items for the new coronavirus, which the Tokyo Metropolitan Government is reviewing, set the number of cases in which multiple medical institutions were requested to accept emergency patients, but the delivery destination could not be found, etc. Interviews with related parties revealed that adjustments were made in the direction of estimated values.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government is reviewing the monitoring items in preparation for the second wave of the spread of infection, and according to the people concerned, it is adjusting in the direction of establishing seven items to show the infection status and medical system. ..
Specifically, in order to estimate the signs of the spread of infection , we set up an item to see
the number of people who do not know the infection route and the increase rate, and the number
of consultation cases such as fever sent to the fire department on a weekly basis, and set a
potential infection. Analysis of the spread and infection in the city.
Furthermore, it was newly found that the number of cases in which multiple medical institutions were requested to accept emergency patients, but the delivery destination could not be found, was used as a numerical value to estimate the degree of tightness of the medical system.
Also, once a week, an expert will analyze it, and the city will evaluate it based on the results, and if it judges that the situation has deteriorated, it will call for cooperation to voluntarily refrain from going out. I have an idea.
In the future, we will not set a numerical value as a standard for calling attention, and will not take the form of the alert call of "Tokyo Alert" issued earlier this month.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government will compile and announce new monitoring items on the afternoon of the 30th.
"Give attention to infection status" Chief Cabinet Secretary
Regarding the confirmation of new persons infected with the new coronavirus mainly in Tokyo, Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga continued to be nervous, saying that he was not in a situation to immediately issue an emergency declaration again at a press conference. I repeated the idea of keeping a close eye on the infection situation.
In Tokyo, 58 new people were confirmed to have been infected with the new coronavirus on the 29th, and the number exceeded 50 for the fourth consecutive day.
In response to this, Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga said at a press conference that "a certain number of new infections have been confirmed mainly in Tokyo, but regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms, he/she is actively examined by concentrated contacts. It also includes the results we received. We do not think it would be the situation to issue an emergency declaration again immediately."
After that, he said, "We would like to continue working closely with local governments, keeping a close eye on the infection situation in the region, and working to prevent the spread of infection and achieve socio-economic activities at the same time."
