The Bereaved Families Association, which was launched by the bereaved families of patients who died at home after being infected with the new coronavirus, held an online meeting for the first time on the night of the 8th, and the sadness of losing their families without receiving appropriate medical care. We talked about.

The bereaved family association was launched in September by Yuko Nishizato (27), the eldest daughter of a man in her 70s who died at her home in Saitama City after being infected with the new coronavirus.



On the night of the 8th, a total of five people, including members of the Bereaved Family Association and doctors, participated in the first online meeting to discuss their experiences.



Among them, Mr. Nishizato was forced to take medical treatment at home for his father who died in August despite having a chronic illness and a high risk of becoming seriously ill. He talked about the situation at the time when he died without being decided.



In addition, the older sister of a man in his 40s, who was found dead at his home in Okinawa Prefecture at the same time, is still convinced that his younger brother would have been saved if he had received appropriate medical care. He revealed that he had a feeling that he couldn't do.



In the future, the Bereaved Families Association will expand the network of bereaved families with the same experience to exchange information, and will ask the country to improve so that everyone can receive appropriate medical care when the infection spreads.



After the meeting, Mr. Nishizato said, "It made me feel lighter to talk about my experience. I want to convey the thoughts of our bereaved families to the country and prevent the same situation from repeating."
