With the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare is making adjustments in the direction of providing compensation of 200,000 yen per person to doctors and nurses at medical institutions that have accepted patients.
Health workers who treat patients with the new coronavirus and nursing homes to prevent the infection of elderly residents are working to deal with risks, so both the ruling and opposition parties are calling for allowances.

For this reason, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare is making adjustments in the direction of providing a compensation payment of ¥1,000,000 per person to doctors and nurses at medical institutions that actually accept patients.

In addition, although there is no acceptance of patients, we are considering providing 100,000 yen per person to doctors and nurses at medical institutions that have secured beds.

In addition, we are considering the amount of the payment to provide it to the staff of the nursing home etc.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has adjusted the medical fee for the treatment of severely ill patients admitted to the ICU intensive care unit to three times the normal number, such as the need for infection control.
