        This states 26 domestic cases but two other Japanese residents were infected in Japan - so 28 plus returnees from Wuhan and those on the cruise ship.

                      New type pneumonia, Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare "different situation than before"

                      2020/2/15 21:39

                      In response to the successive confirmation of the infection of the new coronavirus in Japan, Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Katsunobu Kato held a press conference on March 15 and said that there were multiple cases where the infection route was unknown, saying `` The situation is different from before. There is. " The government will hold an expert meeting of the Cabinet Secretariat on the evening of the 16th to evaluate the domestic infection status and consider measures to prevent the spread of damage.

                      On Wednesday, three new infections were confirmed at a hospital in Wakayama Prefecture, where doctors were confirmed, including colleagues' doctors and patients. According to the prefecture, it is considered "nosocomial infection." On the 15th, eight people, including those on the same houseboat as the taxi driver infected in Tokyo, and one in Nagoya were confirmed.

                      Nosocomial or community-acquired infections may have spread, and Mr. Kato stated that medical and scientific evaluations require expert judgment. When the elderly or people with a medical condition are suspected of being infected with the new virus, he said he would make a guideline to decide whether to consult a medical institution for outpatient services. It is expected that fever will continue.

                      The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare is considering increasing the number of telephone lines and operating hours for the "Returnee and Contact Center for Consultation" to receive telephone consultations for people with symptoms. The center plans to increase the number of “returnees / contacts” to examine suspected individuals from the current 660 locations to approximately 800, the same as for the 2009 pandemic flu response.

                        Authoritative Japanese Respiratory Virus Expert: Beware of hospitals becoming the source of virus infection, you must "open the window thoroughly and ventilate"!

                        2020-02-15 17:07:12 Author: Li Jie
                        Root Mingming Guozhao.jpeg

                        According to the Japanese magazine "Modern Economy" reported on February 14, Japanese authoritative respiratory virus expert Nerome kuniaki was interviewed by Japanese writer Yamane Shinichi about the coronavirus problem.

                        Mr. Gen Luming made important suggestions on the hospital's quarantine policy in an exclusive interview, that is, "closed space is equal to cultivating viruses" and encouraged "open windows and ventilate thoroughly".

                        Closed patient spaces like hospitals are cultivating viruses

                        Gen Luming pointed out that it was wrong to concentrate patients in a closed space. Keeping infected and infected people in a confined space is tantamount to breeding a virus.

                        In order to prevent infection in the hospital, a good way is to "open the windows of the hospital completely and blow out the indoor air with an electric fan to drive away the virus. Opening the windows thoroughly is the best way."

                        Gen Luming believes that coronavirus is different from influenza. Influenza virus can float in the air for a long time. Coronavirus can only be transmitted through the "droplet nucleus". And the coronavirus can only die in the air when flying a distance of 1-2 meters .

                        During the SARS outbreak in 2003, a hospital in Hanoi, Vietnam, decisively adopted ventilation measures. In Hong Kong, the elevators of super high-rise residential buildings have become an important medium for virus outbreaks. This can be compared with the successful cases in Vietnam.

                        Vietnam's approach is very decisive and surprising. The National Center for Biotechnology Information records this as an important experience. This record also compares a Vietnamese A hospital that failed to defeat SARS: A hospital places patients in a narrow room and uses air conditioning to ventilate them; hospital B places patients in a room with a high roof and uses electric fans to ventilate. It is also required to open the windows to the maximum for ventilation.

                        Gen Luming emphasized: "We should not forget the virus infection so far, and the hospital itself has become a lesson for important infections."

                        Diamond Princess stranded cruise ship should open window for ventilation

                        Regarding the "Diamond Princess" cruise ship which has been confirmed to have a large number of infections, it is reported that 3,000 tourists cannot disembark, and at the same time, tourists are told that they cannot leave their room. In this regard, Mr. Gen Luming believes that this approach is equivalent to using an oil tanker as a virus breeding base.

                        ▲ On February 6, in Yokohama, Japan, a passenger who was isolated on the "Princess Diamond" cruise was calling. | Xinhua News Agency

                        "Most viruses are spherical in shape and have many spikes (glycoproteins) on them. The new crown virus uses this protein to adsorb receptors on the surface of healthy cells, thereby invading cells and using the cell's internal materials to replicate itself in large numbers. Spikes are fragile and easily fall off in the air. So the virus carried by the coughing and spitting droplets will die one meter after flying out, "Gen Luming said.

                        He once tried to use a microscope to take pictures of the spikes of the coronavirus throughout his body, but put a lot of effort into it: "As soon as I saw the neat coronavirus under the microscope, the spikes on its surface fell off and became completely Thorny spheres. These spikes are its weapons, but they are also particularly vulnerable. "

                        Therefore, Vietnam ’s B hospital ’s method of “driving viruses from the air out of the window” is to capture the enemy ’s vitality. Therefore, Gen Luming suggested that the infected cruise ship should be opened for ventilation.

                        Because coronaviruses are easily destroyed, Gen Luming believes that as long as 1% surfactant spray can kill the virus. Even without disinfecting water, it is effective to put a small amount of household lotion and soapy water in the water.

                        In addition, soap can damage the membrane-like surface of the virus, so washing your hands with soap is correct. The virus is transmitted through the droplet nucleus, so its infectivity is weaker than that of the flu. As long as you wear a mask when approaching infected and pneumonia patients, you don't need to worry.

                        Gen Lu Ming Guozhao is a world-class Japanese virus ecologist. Formerly the director of the Respiratory Virus Laboratory of the National Institute of Preventive Health, the director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Influenza and Respiratory Virus Academic Cooperative Research Center, the current director of the Japan Institute of Biological Resources Utilization, and the Japanese root cancer Institute director.
