NHK news agency staff waiting for 9 new corona infections at home September 16th, 20:32

A female employee in her 20s at the NHK news agency was confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus.

The staff suffered from pain in the nodules of the body before dawn on the 11th of this month, and after that, they felt a slight change in taste and smell, and underwent a PCR test on the 15th, and the infection was confirmed on the 16th.

The route of infection is unknown.

I was in charge of program production, and I had no contact with outside interviewees.

NHK has already disinfected the workplace and has taken measures such as putting nine staff members, who were considered to be close contacts by the health center, on standby at home.

There is no impact on broadcasting, and NHK will continue to contact the health center to prevent the spread of the infection.
