It tends to rain in Tokyo today.
It was the day when I thought that everyone would like to go back to my daily life because the beauty salon which had closed on them own about COVID-19 was opened (because the May 6th is the day the original declaration of emergency should have been lifted).
After doing the necessary things, I kept waiting at home as usual, but there were two interesting articles.
2000 infected patients were treated at home, it's more than twice the accommodation Ministry
The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare announced the results of the nationwide survey on the treatment place for patients with new-type coronavirus infection on the 6th. Of the 8711 patients in total, 1984 were treated at home, more than double the number of 862 at hotels and other accommodations. Compared with the national policy of accommodation facilities, it was revealed that many patients staying at home will receive medical treatment for mild and asymptomatic people.
Prefectures reported to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare about the situation as of April 28.
According to the survey, out of the total number of patients (excluding fatalities) 8711 that became positive by PCR, the number of hospitalizations was the highest at 5558. Next were the number of home caregivers and accommodation caregivers.
(* In japan, the government has rented many hotels to make it a treatment facility for patients. But admission is not compulsory.)
The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has announced the number of home medical treatments.
I was a little surprised because I thought they wouldn't make it public. .
I will summarize only the breakdown.
【Status as of April 28】
Number of infected people nationwide : 8711 (excluding fatalities)
Number of hospitalized people : 5,558
Home caregivers : 1,984
Accommodation facility caregivers : 862
If you have a new type of coronavirus infection, of course, it's better to stay at home because you can feel more at home and feel at ease.
However, an infectious disease is difficult, and if you do not properly isolate and resolve each case, it will expand at a stretch.
Temporary medical facilities are also subject to hospitalization measures
Responding to sudden changes in physical condition due to new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection Atsushi Kato,Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare
Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Katsunobu Kato announced on the 6th that they will discuss that temporary medical facilities established by prefectures based on the Act on Special Measures Against Influenza will be included in the institutions subject to compulsory hospitalization measures based on the Infectious Disease Law.
With the aim of responding to sudden changes in the physical condition of new-type coronavirus-infected patients who are receiving medical treatment at home, Mr. Kato said, "I want you to expand your (medical treatment) options." He made it clear to reporters in the city of Yokohama I visited.
It is not a study but a place where you want to execute it quickly and let it converge quickly.
Let's do our best to regain everyday life!
