Tokyo Roadmap “Phased Easing” Specifically May 22 at 18:58
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s roadmap for overcoming new coronavirus infections presents an idea to maintain socio-economic activity while preventing the spread of infection.
After the emergency declaration has been lifted, the main pillar is to step-by-step relaxation of requests for closures, and there are stages from the current step to step 3, and we will expand the scope of the program by type of industry and facility.
In mitigation, seven indicators are used: 1 new number of positives, the percentage of two new positives and two new positives who do not know the contact history, the rate of increase in positive son-in-a-week, 3 severe lysis, 4 hospitalizations, 5PCR test positive rates, and the number of consultations in the consultation desk.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government evaluates the situation on a weekly basis based on the changes in the number of new positives per day, such as the average number of new positives per day, and other indicators, and makes a comprehensive judgment based on listening to the opinions of experts.
Governor Koike said in an interview on Wednesday that he would promptly proceed to step 1 in response to the lifting of the emergency declaration. For example, if it is released on the 25th, i think it will be 0 am on the 26th,” he said, indicating that if it is lifted on the 25th next week, it will start easing on the 26th.
“If there are fewer people infected, we would like to consider accelerating the transition to the next step,” he said. On the other hand, if the infection situation worsens, we may make a request for a leave of absence again, and if the status of the infection exceeds the standard number, we will issue our own “Tokyo Alert” to call for vigilance.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has made it clear that it will ease requests for closures by type of industry and facilities.
After the relaxation was phased out and the emergency declaration was lifted, the first phase was “indoor athletic facilities”, such as museums, museums, libraries, gymnasiums, swimming alleys and bowling alleys except for spectators.
For example, in a dome stadium or gymnasium, you can play a non-spectator game in the B-league of professional baseball and basketball, or practice an athlete using the National Training Center.
In addition, restaurants and restaurants, including taverns other than home delivery, currently have a request to shorten the business hours until 10 p.m., and alcoholic beverages will be served until 10 p.m.
The event is said to be up to 50 people.
In the next stage, the new relaxation will be covered by “indoor and outdoor sports facilities”, including audience seats, as well as stores that operate non-retail services for life-required goods, such as driving schools, cram schools, theaters, viewing stations, movie theaters, entertainment halls, meeting halls, public halls, exhibition halls, and commercial facilities.
The event is said to be up to 100 people.
In addition, the next stage will include a new net café, manga café, shooting field, Katsuma voting ticket launch site, off-field car ticket vending station, mahjong store, pachinko parlor, game center, amusement park, etc.
In addition, restaurants, restaurants and coffee shops, including izakaya excluding home delivery, will be open until 0 a.m. the next day.
Alcoholic beverages will also be served until 0 a.m. the next day.
The event is expected to be held with up to 1,000 people.
At this stage, in addition to restaurants with entertainment, such as nightclubs, live houses, karaoke boxes, and sports gyms, we will continue to request closures as there is a high risk of infection, such as clusters occurring.
We will consider the easing of these industries based on the country’s response policies in the future.
Voice requesting the reopening of business from a karaoke shop
The company that operates karaoke shops that were not included in the relaxation of the tokyo metropolitan government’s request for a holiday has been asked to resume business.
The company, which operates karaoke stores nationwide, has been closed at approximately 340 stores, more than seven percent of the total, including 69 stores in Tokyo where emergency declarations are continuing.
The company has no prospect of future management because karaoke shops were not included in the relaxation of the request for a phased leave by The Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
Shinji Kato, president of the company that develops Karaoke BanBan, said, “We are very sorry that we believe that the karaoke culture itself is in decline and is at risk of survival. I would like the government and Tokyo to show us what is needed and what is missing for the resumption of business, and i would like them to resume operations as soon as possible.”
The company operates ventilation equipment and replaces indoor air at all times, and wants to prepare for the resumption of operations by taking measures to prevent infection, such as continuing to disinfect alcohol on the microphone.
Expansion of inspection system and medical system
Tokyo’s roadmap says it will expand its inspection system in preparation for the second wave of infections expected in the future.
As of the end of last month, there were 80 dedicated outpatient clinics in Tokyo that could undergo PCR testing, and 16 PCR testing centers, but in the future, we will expand our system throughout Tokyo to increase the number of dedicated outpatient clinics to 100 locations and 38 inspection centers.
In addition, the maximum processing capacity for daily inspections has been up to about 3,100, but in the future, the university and other research institutes will aim to secure up to approximately 10,000 processing power per day.
In addition, in order to reduce the inspection time, pcr testing in liquids that can collect specimens more easily than before, and “antigen testing” test kit that can be examined in about 30 minutes to see if it is infected will be introduced.
With regard to the medical system, we will promote securing hospital beds, mainly at Tokyo Metropolitan Public Corporation Hospital, designate new medical institutions that will accept patients with a focus, and secure accommodation facilities such as hotels that can continue to accept minor patients.
