Overseas Network, January 14 According to Japanese NHK TV, a total of 13 COVID-19 patients died in Tokyo on the 13th, including a man in his 80s and a woman in his 50s.

During their own convalescence, their condition deteriorated sharply and died after being sent to hospital. The man also has a basic disease and has been waiting for a hospital bed.

The number of coronavirus patients in Tokyo continues to grow, and hospital beds are in urgent need, and many patients cannot be hospitalized immediately.

The deceased man had a history of diabetes. He tested positive for the novel coronavirus on the 7th, and began to have a fever on the 8th. His condition worsened.

Although the local health clinic contacted the hospital for him, no medical institution could be found to receive him. The man’s condition improved slightly and he was recuperated at home, but his condition worsened again on the 11th and died on the 13th.

Tokyo said that due to the continuous spread of the epidemic, the number of patients is increasing, and the number of cases of hospitalization is frequent.

“The man has a basic disease. If he can be hospitalized at the right time, it will not become like this. In the future, we will adjust the policy to coordinate such patients to be hospitalized as much as possible.”

Japanese media reported on the 13th that with the outbreak of COVID-19 in Japan again, medical resources in the Japanese Capital Circle and the Kansai Circle are in a state of tension.

More than 7,000 people infected with the novel coronavirus have to wait at home in Tokyo, and health care staff can only monitor the health of infected people by making phone calls in the morning and evening.
