Regarding measures against the new coronavirus, Mr. Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization, held a video conference with Chairman Iizumi of the National Governors' Association, etc. We requested thorough measures such as strengthening patrols of the restaurants we provide.

Among them, Mr. Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization, said, "The number of newly infected people has stopped declining in Tokyo and is on the rise, and we are becoming more cautious. However, it is important to continue to take thorough measures. "



After that, in areas where priority measures such as spread prevention are applied, we will look around to see if infection control measures that are a prerequisite for the provision of alcoholic beverages are taken by 7:00 pm, and if the measures are not thorough, we will take measures such as orders and fines. I asked you to consider it.



In addition to medical institutions and facilities for the elderly, he said that he would like to see the use of antigen test kits distributed to universities and high schools as "a powerful means of suppressing the spread of infection among the younger generation until vaccination progresses." We called for active utilization in such areas.



On the other hand, Chairman Iizumi of the National Governors' Association, if an infected person is found in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics athletes who come to Japan from overseas, identify close contacts at an early stage, isolate them for a certain period of time, and work as a vaccine. We requested that we promptly resume accepting applications for vaccination.
