      The patient is a 30-year-old woman from Wuhan. It is not clear whether she is Japanese or Chinese. Fearing xenophobic reactions, the authorities are maintaining maximum confidentiality about those infected. Fear hasn’t stopped lunar New Year celebrations. Yesterday thousands of people watched the Tokyo Tower lit in red to usher in the Year of the White Rat.

      Health officials have said that they will maintain absolute confidentiality in such cases, given the very high risk of creating a media circus and sparking xenophobia or classism.

      In any case, the 30-eyar-old woman shows no symptoms since catching the disease.

      She went to a hospital in Tokyo of her own free will, where the infection was confirmed..

            Japan sees 1st coronavirus case not linked to travel to China

            KYODO NEWS - 24 minutes ago - 18:45
            TOKYO - The government on Tuesday confirmed two more cases in Japan of the new coronavirus, including a tour bus driver who has never been to the central Chinese city of Wuhan, where the outbreak of the deadly virus began in a seafood and poultry market.

            The findings bring the total number of confirmed infections in Japan to six.

            The bus driver in his 60s drove two groups of Chinese tourists from Wuhan earlier this month, Japanese health minister Katsunobu Kato said.

            The driver from Nara Prefecture, western Japan, was diagnosed with pneumonia on Saturday and has been hospitalized in the prefecture.

            The other case newly confirmed is of a man in his 40s from Wuhan who has been in Japan since Jan. 20. He too has developed pneumonia.

            The ministry said it is checking the health condition of people who had contact with the two new patients.

              New type pneumonia may be infected from the first person in Japan

              Nara bus driver who has never stayed in Wuhan

              jan 28, 2020

              The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare announced on February 28 that two new cases of new coronavirus infection have been identified in Japan. One is a Japanese man in his 60s living in Nara prefecture. He took a tour from Wuhan, Hubei Province, China as a bus driver, but had no history of his stay. It may have been transmitted from an infected person in Japan, and if confirmed, this is the first case of human-to-human transmission in Japan. The other is a man in his forties living in Wuhan City.

              A total of six patients were confirmed infected in Japan.

              Meanwhile, the government dispatched one charter aircraft from Japan to return to Japan for a stay in Wuhan on the night of the 28th. About 200 people will arrive at Haneda Airport on the morning of the 29th.
              厚生労働省は28日、国内で新たに2例の新型コロナウイルス感染者が確認されたと発表した。1人は奈良県在住の60代日本人男性。バス運転手として中国湖北省武漢市からのツアー客を乗せたが、自身の滞在歴はなかった。国内で感染者からうつった可能性があり、確認されれば、国内で人から人に感染した初の事例となる。もう1人は武漢市在住の40代男性。国内で感染が確認された患者は計6人となった。 一方、政府は28日夜、武漢滞在の邦人帰国に向け、チャーター機1機を日本から派遣。

For those with symptoms, measures were taken to prevent infection of the surroundings on board the aircraft, and they were transported to medical institutions after arriving in Japan. In addition, one of the patients was transported to a medical institution after alighting because of nausea while waiting at the airport.

                       Of the 201 people other than 5 who were transported to a medical institution, 199 with consent were obtained. ) Was again interviewed by a physician at the National Center for Medical Research (NCGM), consulted, and examined, and 191 people were again confirmed to have no particular symptoms. We ask these people to stay out for at least two weeks and follow up on their health regularly.

                       A close examination at NCGM revealed that 8 patients had symptoms such as fever, cough, nasal discharge, and headaches, and 7 of these patients will be hospitalized, except for 1 headache.


                       We have tested 199 new coronaviruses with or without symptoms, and will announce the results again.

                                TOKYO - Three Japanese citizens among more than 200 on a first evacuation flight from China have tested positive for a new strain of coronavirus, Japan's health minister said Thursday.

                                The three people arrived in Japan on Wednesday, on the first flight to evacuate Japanese citizens from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of a deadly outbreak that has killed 170 people and injected thousands.


                                The three evacuees raise the number of cases in Japan so far to 11, including two people who appear to have contracted the virus without traveling to China.

                                "In addition to the eight cases, among the people who returned from Wuhan yesterday, infection (with the new coronavirus) has been confirmed in one person with symptoms and two other people who have no symptoms," Health Minister Katsunobu Kato told parliament.

                                The new cases come after authorities on Wednesday confirmed a second instance in which a person tested positive for the virus without having traveled to Japan.

                                The woman was a tour guide who worked on the same bus as a driver who also contracted the virus without traveling to China.

                                The driver told authorities he had driven two groups of tourists from Wuhan earlier in January and developed symptoms afterwards.

                                "The eighth case is the second suspected incident of human-to-human transmission in Japan," Kato said.

                                "We are in a truly new situation."
