Expert "The number of tests has decreased, and we are paying close attention to the number of infected people after consecutive holidays."

Professor Kazuhiro Tateda of Toho University, a member of the government's subcommittee on measures against the new coronavirus, said that the number of newly infected people in all prefectures is lower than the previous week. However, the number of tests may have decreased due to the long holidays, and it may be underestimated. After the holidays, we must carefully watch how the number of infected people will change from next week onwards. " I pointed out.



On top of that, he said, "It's okay to go to a tourist spot during the Golden Week holidays and spread the infection in the area, and after returning to the urban area, it may become a new source of infection. If there is something wrong with the change, it will be necessary to take measures such as seeing a medical institution or undergoing an examination as soon as possible. "



Furthermore, regarding the relaxation of future measures, "Many people are moving during the Golden Week holidays, and we are now in a situation where we can enjoy traveling and returning home. How can we prevent the number of infected people from increasing while there are so many people moving? It is important to determine what kind of measures can be mitigated after ascertaining what can be done. Right now, I think it is necessary to take measures to gradually mitigate infection control while paying attention. I'm talking.
