The reason is exactly as the title says. lol
[Individual] Many reports leaked to Tokyo infected people.
Regarding the number of people infected with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tokyo announced by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, it was found that many public health centers were missing reports. The total number of infected people in Tokyo is 4,868 as of 10th, but the Goverment is in the process of re-counting, and and a leak of 100 people is found at the moment.
Since late January, the Goverment has received reports from the 23 wards and public health centers in the city, and has compiled and published the number of people infected and their age and sex. However, it was revealed that there were many mistakes such as omission of reports and double counting at multiple public health centers.
It is said that some public health centers used to manually copy what was once input to the terminal and reported it to the city, which is said to be one factor by the people related to the city.
Besides the information management of infected persons, the public health center has many tasks such as telephone consultation and investigation of the infection route, which may be due to the excessive burden.
Not only omissions but also many double declarations.
Actually about both of+ -, It seems that you make a mistake.
"If I think it's gone, what should I do?"
"The numbers are unbelievable"
"Scared things are happening"
There are so many pessimistic tweets.
I think that such mistakes are unlikely to occur on a day with a small number like today or last week,
and I think that it is prone to occur at a time like April when the infection spread and there were more than 100 people every day.
I personally think that we can believe that these recent numbers are accurate...
I think that we should be sure to investigate the cause of this kind of mistake,
The numbers in the past may change a little,
but now the number of infected people is declining and everyone is doing their best,
so let's be positive and not pessimistic!
