Expert "At the time of transition to sharpened measures"

Professor Kazuhiro Tateda of Toho University, a member of the government's subcommittee on measures against the new coronavirus, said, "It's been two weeks since the Golden Week holidays, but we haven't seen a sharp increase in the number of infected people, which was initially worrisome. It has not been done. It seems that each person can understand how to reduce the risk of infection and act. However, if he thinks it is okay, the infection will increase again. With regard to masks, it is time to shift to sharper measures such as wearing them firmly when the risk of infection is high, even if they do not wear them when the risk of infection is low. "



On top of that, "In the future, it will be important to gradually return the movements of people, including tourists from overseas. We will make people who have not experienced infection control in Japan understand the idea and take measures. It is important to enlighten people to cooperate with us. "
