Many people in Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare diagnosed with new crowns, ignoring epidemic prevention requirements for late night dinner
China News Service, April 8th. According to Kyodo News, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare announced on the 8th that 6 people, including employees, were infected with the new crown virus. Many of them had attended Lao Jian in late March. The bureau lasted until late at night for dinner. The health center is investigating the path of infection. According to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, multiple infections in the same department may be actual collective infections.
p > According to reports, of the 6 people infected, 5 of them were employees of the Health Care Section for the Elderly, and 1 was transferred to an organization outside the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare on April 1. The person had a fever from April 3 to 6, and the new coronavirus test result was confirmed to be positive. The 5 people who stayed in the Hullah Province are currently not working.
In addition, many of the infected cases attended a dinner party on March 24. At that time, the gathering place was a restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo. A total of 23 employees from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare attended the gathering from 19:15 to around 23:50. There is no acrylic board in the store, and most of the participants took off their masks during the conversation.
Due to the fact that during dinner gatherings, Tokyo continues to require restaurants to shorten business hours due to the spread of the epidemic. The ruling and opposition parties have criticized that this is an act that damages credit. On March 30, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare imposed sanctions on relevant personnel and made the then head of the elderly health care section who hosted the dinner to be subordinate to the Minister’s Cabinet, which in fact changed and reduced salaries. Other participants were reprimanded, warned, etc.
In an interview, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare also introduced that in addition to the above-mentioned 6 persons, 2 employees of the Old Health Bureau have fever and other symptoms and are waiting for the test results. The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare stated that it would not announce the total number of people tested and whether they were hospitalized.
At the Senate’s Committee for Labor Affairs, Hou Lao Ai Tian Mura Xianhisa repeatedly apologized for dinner, saying “apologize again”.
At the same time, the health center is investigating the path of infection, and the causal relationship with gatherings and restaurants is still unclear. According to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, “it has not been recognized as a (collective infection)”, but multiple infections in the same department may be actual mass infections.
