December 11th – On the 10th local time, Japan reported 2,973 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, the largest one-day increase since the outbreak began.
According to the analysis of the Japanese government expert team, the government’s anti-epidemic policy so far has not been successful, and the future situation will be more serious.
According to a report by Japan’s Kyodo News Agency on the 10th, the expert group that provides anti-epidemic advice to Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare held a press conference on the same day, saying that on the whole, Japan’s anti-epidemic policy so far has failed to control the expansion of the scale of infection, and it still needs to maintain the highest level of vigilance.
With the New Year approaching, Japan will enter the peak period of year-end gatherings and family visits. In order to contain the epidemic, expert groups suggest that people should cancel the corresponding arrangements as much as possible and take protective measures when they need to travel.
In addition, the Japanese government will hold a meeting on epidemic response on the 11th to discuss whether to suspend the tourism promotion plan “Go To Travel”.
