      Expert "Avoid airy spaces"

      March 02, 18:16

      A national expert meeting on anti-coronavirus measures analyzed data from Hokkaido, where the number of infected people was the highest, and summarized the findings, spreading even if the young generation with mild symptoms did not notice even if infected. He refrained from going out even with mild cold symptoms, and called for as few events as possible in poorly ventilated spaces.

      Following the spread of infection in Hokkaido, an expert meeting of the national emergency response headquarters for the new coronavirus put together its views on the status of infection and the measures required in the future.

      Among them, regarding Hokkaido, "it is thought that there are many tourists from China and it is thought that those people spread the infection", and given the situation where infected people are scattered throughout the province, considering the population ratio According to the report, the number of infected cases is overwhelmingly large in remote areas.

      In addition, ▼ people with mild symptoms are thought to play an important role in spreading infection in Hokkaido without noticing, especially among young people, the rate of severe disease is very low and the situation of infection spread is not visible As a result, it is believed that many middle-aged and elderly people are infected as a result.

      And about ▼ of the infected people, about 80% did not infect other people, while in cases where one or more people were infected at a close distance for a certain period of time in a closed indoor space. It has been reported.

      Furthermore, in urban areas in Hokkaido, where there are many young generations, people with active social and economic activities are more likely to gather in places where these infection risks are high, and it is said that infection is spreading without realizing it. It is believed that the infection has spread as people move to other parts of Hokkaido.

      In addition, if active measures were taken in the past one or two weeks, the spread of infection could be rapidly converged. Regardless, we encourage people to avoid going to places and events where they can talk at close distances in a poorly ventilated space.

      On the other hand, those who have no symptoms are infected outdoors, such as walking, jogging, shopping, and activities that have little contact with people, and reaching out to reach the other person and talking at a distance that is out of reach. Risk is low.

      He further commented that he was "requesting" people in their teens and thirties, saying that young people could spread the disease to people at high risk of illness. Alone can stop the illness of many people and save lives. "

      new coronavirus infection disease control experts meeting

      "opinion of the new coronavirus infectious disease control" March 2, 2020

      This view is based on the contents of the new coronavirus the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare headquarters cluster measures group were analyzed, This is a view summarizing the results examined at the expert meeting.

      We believe that it is our duty as an expert to directly communicate with the public how we analyze the current situation and what ideas we have based on the information that has been revealed to date. I have compiled this view.

      Please note that this is a current opinion and is subject to change at any time.

      1. What has become clear over the past couple of days

      (1) Spread of infection from people with mild symptoms Until now, it was thought that there was a possibility of infection from people with mild symptoms, but it became clear from the analysis of data from Hokkaido and other places during these two days. The thing is that even those with mild symptoms may play an important role in spreading the infection without realizing it.
      Above all, it is thought that the infection rate has spread to many middle-aged and elderly people, as the rate of severe cases is extremely low among young people, and the situation of the spread of infection cannot be seen.

      (2) Spread of infection from places that meet certain conditions Of the people who have been infected so far in Japan, about 80% of those who have been severely or mildly infected do not infect other people.

      On the other hand, there have been reports of cases where one infected person infected multiple people in a place that meets certain conditions.
      Specifically, there are live houses, sports gyms, houseboats, buffet-style dinners, sparrow cottages, ski guesthouses, and closed temporary tents.
      This suggests that patient clusters may occur when people intersect at close distances over a certain period of time in a closed indoor space.
      And it is thought that the patient population (cluster) produces the next population (cluster), which leads to the rapid spread of infection.

      (3) According to the data obtained so far for patients with severe disease, about 80% of those with confirmed symptoms are mild, 14% severe, and 6% severe.
      However, about half of those who have become severe have recovered.
      Severe patients begin with common cold symptoms (slight fever, sore throat, cough, etc.) at first, and it is difficult to distinguish between the two stages.
      Severely affected patients, about 5 to 7 days after the onset of the common cold symptoms, the symptoms worsen rapidly, leading to pneumonia.

      2. Current Hokkaido Infection Status The
      estimated number of affected cases is thought to be increasing rapidly every day.
      However, by taking proactive measures, such as minimizing human-to-human contact during the last 1-2 weeks, the spread of infection can be rapidly converged.
      However, if such measures are not implemented, there is a risk that infected people will spread rapidly throughout Hokkaido.

      3. Why this kind of has led to the infection status
      regional features in (1) Hokkaido
      in urban areas, a large population, but are concentrated active young people of the social and economic activities, severe in the other sphere The feature is that many elderly people who are likely to live are living there.
      In addition, the movement of people between the six spheres of Hokkaido has a lot of movement between urban areas and other spheres.

      (2) Characteristics of infection in
      Hokkaido There are many tourists from China in Hokkaido, and it is probable that the infection spread from such people.
      Although the infection status is not enough to cover the whole of Hokkaido, infected people are scattered throughout Hokkaido.
      Also, considering the population ratio, the number of infected cases is overwhelmingly large in remote areas.

      (3) Reasons for the current situation In
      urban areas, people with active social and economic activities tend to gather in places where the risk of infection is high, and it is probable that the person was infected without realizing it.
      Above all, it is thought that there are many young people with mild symptoms, and when some of these people move to other areas, the infection spreads to multiple areas in Hokkaido, causing the elderly to become infected. It is considered that the status of the spread of the infection could be grasped for the first time by the report of the occurrence of symptoms from among them.

      4. Actions to be taken in Hokkaido In
      order for infections to rapidly converge, it is essential to minimize human-to-human contact.
      This should be focused now.
      If these measures are not taken and people do not change any behavior, the number of infected cases will increase rapidly, and the number of cases will increase rapidly after a certain incubation period.
      Some of them can be severe.
      This can lead to health damage for many people and severe adverse effects on the healthcare delivery system.
      However, at this time, the number of new cases is expected to decline rapidly if people switch to appropriate actions to curb the rapid spread of infection.
      If this works, the number of patients will not increase rapidly in the future.
      However, due to the incubation period, there is a time lag before the decrease in the number of patients can be confirmed, so the effect cannot be evaluated until about two weeks have passed since people's behavior changed significantly.
      For some infectious diseases, the infection of most people breaks the chain of infection, and can function as a mechanism to protect those who are not infected (obtaining collective immunity).
      However, the current infection situation is not at a level where population immunity can be expected.
      It is not yet known whether a person once infected becomes infected again.

      6. What can everyone in Hokkaido do
      Wuhan is trying to stop the spread of infection by stopping social functions, but at present, in Japan, it is possible to maintain the social functions as much as possible and suppress the spread of infection to the maximum. We sought.
      To that end, we want as many people as possible to take the following actions:
      <1> Avoid going out even with mild cold symptoms (only throat pain, cough only, fever, etc.)
      <2> Regardless of the size of the scale, places where people can talk at close distances in a poorly ventilated space Do not go to events as much as possible (for example, live houses, karaoke boxes, clubs, buffet parties, drinking parties at home, etc.)
      However, for those who do not have symptoms, outdoor activities and contact with people Activities with low risk (eg, walking, jogging, shopping, watching art, etc.) and reaching for a conversation that is too far away to reach the other are activities with a low risk of infection.
      Request to Hokkaido Business Operators
      As mentioned above, it has now become clear that infections are quietly spreading through people with mild symptoms and active economic and social activities.
      Therefore, for activities at offices, etc., make full use of forms that do not allow people to contact each other, such as telework, remote work, and online meetings.
      Please minimize business trips.
      However, businesses and medical institutions involved in maintaining social functions need to continue business and medical treatment.
      Carefully take care of infection control when conducting business and medical care so that it does not affect the lives of the people.

      7. Requests for young people nationwide
      Teens, 20s, and 30s. The younger generation has a lower risk of severe disease due to the new coronavirus infection. However, due to the nature of the virus, people with milder symptoms may spread the infection to those at higher risk of becoming more severe.
      You can save the lives of many people and save lives by simply avoiding the poorly ventilated places where people gather.

      [ "persons infected about 940 people of possibility" estimates]
      members of the expert meeting of the country of the new coronavirus is a press conference two days, one of the members of the countermeasures group of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, Hiroshi Nishiura professor of Hokkaido University According to the simulation results, there was a possibility that as many as 940 people had become infected throughout Hokkaido as of last month.

      Professor Nishiura, one of the members of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare's task force set up to prevent the emergence of a cluster of infected people called "clusters," was found in other areas and overseas after traveling to Hokkaido. Based on data on the number of people and the number of people who used airports in Hokkaido, we estimated the number of people infected throughout Hokkaido by simulation.
      As a result, it was suggested that the number of people infected by the stage up to 25th of last month may have been about 940, which is 12 times that of 77 cases confirmed in Hokkaido by March 2nd. It is more than the number.

      The expert meeting said that in addition to those who were confirmed to be infected by the situation, there may be people who were not aware of the infection due to mild cases, especially in the younger generation, symptoms are mild or almost non-existent In many cases, we call for avoiding "places and events where people can talk at close distances in a poorly ventilated space" as much as possible to prevent spreading the infection without your knowledge.

      [Mayor of Sapporo "Watch out for students and young employees"]

      Akimoto of Sapporo City in connection with the expert meeting pointing out that the young generation may spread the infection to people at high risk of severe disease The Mayor told reporters, "Sapporo has many universities and offices where young people work, so students and employees should be careful to prevent the spread of infection. Be careful not to go out if you do not go to the places where people are gathering or if you have early symptoms of cold. "

      In that case, Mayor Akimoto revealed that he would establish an infectious disease control room with about 10 staff members on the 3rd in the city hall to strengthen measures to prevent infection.
