COVID-19 News: COVID-19 infections are once again rising in Japan and causing a strain to the public healthcare infrastructure. The spread of the JN.1 variant is causing hospitalizations and ICU admissions to rise with emergency rooms simply overwhelmed…a common scenario now being seen in many countries across world as idiots claim that JN.1 variant is mild and does not cause disease severity!


 JN.1 Infections Rising In Japan
 
There are literally no COVID-19 News coverages on any of the mainstream Japanese media about the rising cases and situations at the hospitals and some are even stupidly talking about COVID-19 pandemic winding down in their business article.

Social Media Post Showing Rising JN.1 Infections In Japan
 
Individuals At Earthquake Evacuation Centre In Ishikawa Prefecture Getting Infected With COVID-19
 
Meanwhile, local news are emerging that COVID-19 infections are even rising among the earthquake victims at an evacuation center located in Noto, Ishikawa Prefecture, where over 200 individuals have sought refuge.

Concerns have escalated as 14 individuals, suspected of having infectious diseases, along with their family members, have been isolated from the rest of the evacuees. This separation occurred on Tuesday at Ogi Junior High School, repurposed as a shelter, where the affected individuals are now situated in three classrooms and a designated medical room.
 
Complaints of fever and sore throat symptoms among evacuees have surfaced in recent days, as reported by the medical support team from Nippon Sport Science University’s Faculty of Medical Science.
 
Approximately 10 individuals have tested positive for COVID-19 using antigen test kits, and one person has tested positive for influenza.
 
The shelter accommodates around 160 evacuees in the gymnasium, 20 in the cafeteria, and additional individuals in various rooms, including the library. To curb infection transmission, those who tested positive and their families have been instructed to maintain a distance from other evacuees.
 
In response to the situation, a medical support team from the All Japan Hospital Association and the Disaster Health Emergency Assistance Team, specializing in health activities in affected areas, has joined efforts to assist the evacuees. Notably, all confirmed cases reportedly exhibit mild symptoms.
 
Professor Hiroyuki Yokota, an expert in emergency medicine at Nippon Sport Science University providing medical support to earthquake-affected areas, emphasized that, despite COVID-19 being downgraded to a Category V infectious disease and being less concerning for vaccinated individuals, caution remains crucial. Given the presence of many elderly individuals in evacuation centers, preventive measures and a hygienic environment are deemed essential to minimize the risk of infection.
