New index "hospitalization rate"

The newly adopted "hospitalization rate" as an index is the ratio of those who have been hospitalized to all the recuperators.



As the number of patients with the new coronavirus increases, the number of patients who should be hospitalized but cannot be hospitalized and receive medical treatment at home or institution increases. Therefore, the lower the "hospitalization rate", the more patients cannot be accepted. In other words, medical care may be tight.



However, the government's "New Coronavirus Infectious Disease Control Subcommittee" does not apply in the following cases.



▼ When the number of medical treatment is less than 10 per 100,000 population.



▼ The number of new positives who need to be hospitalized can be hospitalized by the day after the notification of the outbreak.



No stage decisions are made for these municipalities.
