The Constitutional Democratic Party has issued an urgent proposal calling for the urgent development of a system that allows children and students to carry out PCR tests on a regular basis, saying that it is necessary to strengthen measures against the transmission of the new coronavirus to children.
The urgent proposal was announced by President Edano of the Constitutional Democratic Party on the 17th.
The proposal calls for the urgent development of a system that allows children and students to carry out PCR tests on a regular basis, as well as the acceleration of priority vaccination for applicants aged 12 and over.
In addition, ▽ As there are not enough medical institutions that can handle children's patients, it is urgent to establish a system that can ensure hospitalization for patients with moderate or higher illness.
Furthermore, in order to reduce the burden on children and families due to the effects of infection, the system for accepting children should be expanded due to school closures.
In addition, ▽ We will build a system to facilitate remote lessons to support the continuation of learning, and strengthen financial support for parents who are absent from work due to school closures.
Mr. Edano said, "Schools have started and it is very important to protect children from infection, but the government's response is always behind and we want to speed it up."
The Constitutional Democratic Party intends to submit this proposal to the government today.Keywords:
