Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare announced on May 12 that 20 more people have died recently after being vaccinated with Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. The deceased were in their 20s to 90s.


Talking about the causal relationship between vaccination and death, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare said that 9 of the deceased “cannot be assessed” and the other 11 deceased were “under assessment”, but concluded that there is no need to worry too much about vaccination at present.


Japanese media said that the above-mentioned death cases are reported as of the 7th. As of the 7th, Japan had carried out 4.38 million vaccinations, and 39 cases died after vaccination.


According to Japanese media reports, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga once again expressed his determination to host the Tokyo Olympics as scheduled on the 13th.


Suga Yoshihide made the above remarks during a meeting with former Chiba Prefecture Governor Kensaku Morita that day. The two had lunch together at the Prime Minister’s residence and talked about whether the Tokyo Olympics could be held and vaccination issues.


Morita Kensaku told the media that he asked the Prime Minister whether the Olympic Games will be held and received an affirmative answer.


As the current situation of the epidemic in Japan has not been significantly contained, Japan has different opinions on whether the Tokyo Olympics can be held.


The former secretary-general of the Japanese Liberal Democratic Party, Hiroyuki Hosoda, said at the Liberal Democratic Party meeting that if the Tokyo Olympics cannot be held due to the epidemic, it will become a national problem and will bring great frustration to the people. “Now, while preventing infection, we should make the greatest efforts for the success of the Tokyo Olympics.”
