Kyodo News Agency reported on January 13 that in the rapidly spreading COVID-19 epidemic in Japan’s capital circle and Kansai circle, the number of people waiting at home who have not been confirmed to hospitals and residential care facilities has soared even if they have tested positive.
This is mainly due to the tight beds in medical institutions and residential convalescent facilities.
At present, more than 7,000 people in Tokyo are in coordination and have to wait at home. There have been examples of sudden changes in their condition or deterioration of health.
According to an earlier report by Japan’s Oriental News, the number of new COVID-19 infections in Tokyo, Japan, on the 12th was 970, and the number of new infections dropped below 1,000 for the first time in seven days.
The cumulative number of infected people in Tokyo reached 77,133.
