COVID-19 News: Affected citizens in Japan are reporting that in certain prefectures and even in Tokyo itself, access to doctors or a healthcare facility to see treatments for respiratory infections and even COVID-19 is difficult as not only are queues long for outpatient clinics but ERs are overwhelmed and hospitals beds are becoming scarce.


18,677 Japanese Hospitalized For COVID-19 As Of 17th January 2024
 
Pharmacies and drug stores are not only out of COVID-19 ATK test kits but stocks of “cold medicines” such as cough syrups, NSAIDS and even nasal decongestants are simply running out especially those for pediatric use.
 
Data from Sapporo medical University that was last updated on the 14th of January 2024 shows alarming rise of COVID-19 across almost all prefectures across Japan with Aichi, Hokkaido and Tokyo the most affected areas.

Data release by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare as of the January 19th 2024 shows COVID-19 Infections and hospitalizations rising at a rapid and worrisome phase. In the second week of January 2024, Japan saw more than 44,000 new COVID-19 infections nationwide!

As of the 17th of January 2024, there were 18,677 Japanese individuals hospitalized due to COVID-19!

Interestingly, no local Japanese COVID-19 News media or international wire agencies are covering about the unfolding crisis in Japan possibly due to discreet censorship imposed by certain politicians!

Also we have not been able to procure accurate data on COVID-19 deaths and excess mortality figures In Japan for the last 4 weeks and hence are not able to make any comments despite being fed depressing speculatives by doctors we have spoken to in the last few hours.
 
While the JN.1 variant is currently the predominant  variant in Japan accounting for almost 59 % of all genomic sequences, newer JN.1 spawns have also emerged in the country such as JN.1.1, JN.1.4, JN.1.5, JN.1.7. JN.1.8 JN.1.9 and worryingly the  JN.1.2 sub-lineage.

Thailand Medical News will be providing more updates on the situation in Japan within the next 24 hours as we have contacted some local stringers to assists up with more data and personal interviews.
