It is reported that on December 1, the number of new coronavirus deaths reported in Japan reached a new high, and the number of severe patients is also increasing. The central government remains highly vigilant about this and will work with the local government to ensure that there are enough beds and medical personnel, and take all measures.
On the same day, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiro Kan and Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike also held talks on the “Go To Travel” travel subsidy measures. The two sides agreed to call on the elderly aged 65 and above and people with basic diseases to avoid travel from Tokyo as their starting and destination for a certain period of time.
After the talks, Yoshihiro Kan told the press corps: “We have reached a consensus that the central government and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government will cooperate closely to contain the further expansion of the epidemic in any case.”
At present, the Japanese government’s epidemic prevention policy is to effectively control the increase in the number of infections while minimizing the impact of anti-epidemic measures on social and economic activities.
At the same time, the Japanese government continues to call on people to wear masks, avoid the “three secrets” state, fully implement basic infection prevention measures, and call on enterprises and others to implement telecommuting.
