November 27 Shigeru Oshimi, chairman of the Japanese government’s COVID-19 Response Group, said at a meeting of the Health and Labour Committee of the House of Representatives that Japan’s COVID-19 epidemic has passed the stage where people can be controlled by relying on people’s personal efforts. In this regard, Taishengmao believes that the central and local governments should strengthen countermeasures.
Japan’s Kyodo News Agency reported on the 27th that Tail Body stressed: “In the next three weeks, in addition to personal efforts, it is necessary to shorten the business hours of restaurants and restrict the movement of people in areas and other areas where the epidemic is expanding.
It is extremely important for the central and local governments to have a sense of crisis with the consciousness of the parties concerned.
Japan’s single-day infection exceeded 2,500 again on the 26th. The number of severe patients in Japan reached a new high of 410, and the death toll increased. The number of infections in the last week has doubled compared with two weeks ago.
According to the expert organizations of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, 40% to 50% of the people in the capital circle are infected in an unknown way, and 60% and 40% in Kansai and central regions, respectively. The locations where cluster infections occur are diversified, such as receptions, workplaces, foreign communities, etc. The “early detection and expansion” measures that once worked in controlling the epidemic in Japan are nearing the limit.
Previously, the COVID-19 Response Group suggested on the 25th that the epidemic in many areas was equivalent to the second most serious “third stage” (a sharp increase in infection) in the group’s standards.
Although the final judgment is still made by the governor of prefecture, the panel still listed Sapporo, Tokyo 23rd district, Nagoya and Osaka as serious areas. Other experts believe that Osaka City is approaching the most serious “phase 4” (the outbreak of the epidemic).
The team will worry that if this situation continues, it may fall into a situation where routine medical services could have saved lives without help.
