The latest data on the status of infection for each prefecture was released, and no prefectures that fell under stage 4, which is the most serious on the index, were in the “severe condition of the sickbed.” On the other hand, “Stage 3” corresponds to 10 prefectures such as Okinawa Prefecture and Ishikawa Prefecture.
The government subcommittee classified the status of the new coronavirus infection into four stages, and provided specific indicators for Stage 4, which needs to be prepared for the explosive spread of the virus, and Stage 3, which is concerned about significant problems with the medical care system.
According to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, there were no prefectures that were applicable as of the 9th of this month, even though it corresponds to stage 4, such as when the “maximum utilization of beds that can be secured” becomes 50% or more.
On the other hand, 10 prefectures accounted for more than 20% of the stage 3 indicators of “utilization of beds that can be secured at the maximum.” The highest was
44% in Okinawa Prefecture,
Ishikawa Prefecture is 40%,
31% in Tokyo,
Fukuoka Prefecture is 30%,
Fukui Prefecture: 28%,
Osaka Prefecture is 27%,
Aichi Prefecture: 26%,
Mie Prefecture and Tokushima Prefecture: 23%,
Gunma Prefecture accounted for 22%.
The government subcommittee said that “indicators are only a guide and it is necessary for countries and prefectures to comprehensively judge the stage based on the situation of the region,” and on November 11, the government proposed measures to stimulate tourism demand and consider excluding prefectures judged to be “Stage 3” for “Go To Travel” from business.
