Japan: The COVID-19 epidemic has begun to rebound and Omicron invaded! Omicron has “invaded” 19 areas…


Seeing that 2021 is about to pass, I thought I could greet the new year happily, but I didn’t expect that because of the Omicron virus outbreak, this year was destined to be spent in the epidemic…

 

On December 30, 64 people were newly infected in Tokyo, an increase of 27 people from last Thursday, and more than 60 people were newly infected in a single day for two consecutive days.

The average number of new infections in Tokyo in the past week was 48.7 , an increase of 64.5% compared with 29.6 last week.

In addition, Osaka, Tokyo, Kanagawa Prefecture, and Kyoto have successively seen different numbers of Omikeron infected persons.

 

As of December 29, exactly one month after the first Omicron case was discovered in Japan, the entry virus has spread to 19 prefectures and counties across Japan.

The cumulative number of infections reached nearly 500, of which 111 people in 8 counties had community infections.

Although Omicron is highly contagious, according to a survey of 109 people who have been diagnosed by the National Institute of Infectious Diseases in Japan, 29 people are asymptomatic, 74 people are mildly ill, and the remaining 6 people are moderately symptomatic.

 

In addition, 22 of them have not been vaccinated. In other words, most of them have already received 2 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

On December 29, the number of new infections in Japan reached 502, which is the first time that the number of new infections exceeded 500 in a single day after a lapse of two and a half months.

There are indications that the epidemic in Japan has rebounded.

 

However, the Japanese government has not made stricter epidemic prevention measures. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida only appealed to the public on press conferences and social platforms.

There will be many people who will hold year-end parties at the end of the year, return to their hometowns, and travel. Everyone should pay attention. Wash your hands and wear a mask to avoid crowded places.

At present, most of the Omi Kejon-infected people in Japan still come from immigrants.

 

Although it has been decided to continue to extend the new entry ban on foreigners from all over the world, since community infections have occurred in many areas in Japan, Japanese experts believe that at this time, the focus should be on responding to the domestic epidemic.

In addition, Japanese experts predict that the rate of Omicron infection will be higher next month, there will be an outbreak at any time, and the medical system will also face a new round of postgraduate entrance examinations.

 

Japanese experts suggested that the Japanese government should prepare enough hospital beds in advance to deal with the arrival of the sixth wave of the epidemic.

 

 

Unknowingly, it has been 2 years since the outbreak occurred, and the outbreak in many countries around the world is still in the outbreak period. I really don’t know when it will end…
