Tokyo will usher in the lifting of the ban on mass infections in street crowded nursing homes and other places

Overseas Network, February 28.



Japan, will lift its emergency declaration on March 7, but the number of new cases of new coronary pneumonia in the past few days has increased.

To this end, all parties call on the public to increase their vigilance and prevent the epidemic from rebounding again.

  According to the Japanese "Asahi Shimbun" website, on the 28th, there were 329 new cases of new coronary pneumonia in Tokyo, an increase of more than 50 from the 21st (272) a week ago.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government revealed that on the 28th, multiple collective infections were also found in nursing homes and other places.

  Fearing that the epidemic will rebound again, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike urged the public to reduce going out at a press conference.

However, due to the fine weather in Tokyo on weekends, the streets are still crowded, and the reduction in the flow of people has not reached the expected level.

The person in charge of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government said, “If you are negligent, the number of infected people may rebound. I hope that everyone will pay more attention to control and reduce non-urgent and necessary outings.”

  Regarding the lifting of the ban in the metropolitan area, some Japanese experts expressed concern about the medical supply system, and the emergency declaration may continue.

On the other hand, the six prefectures of Japan, Gifu, Aichi, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, and Fukuoka, will lift their emergency declarations on March 1.

Although the number of infected people has decreased from the peak, concerns about a rebound of the epidemic remain strong in Japan.
