      Among them, a male doctor in his 50s in Wakayama Prefecture was hospitalized on the 10th of this month due to symptoms of pneumonia after fever and malaise on the 31st of last month, and the infection was confirmed on the 13th .

      According to Wakayama Prefecture, men are surgeons, and after working on symptoms such as fever, they usually went to the hospital from 3 to 5 this month to consult a hospital, but after 6 days they took a break and stayed at home. It means that he had been treated

      He said he had never stayed in Hubei or Zhejiang provinces in China within 14 days before the onset, and during that time he said that he had never carried foreign customers, so the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare detailed the infection route etc. I'm going to find out.
      ......
      The hospital where the men work does not accept new patients, and all patients who are already hospitalized are to be tested and remain in the hospital.

                    Wakayama 70's male confirmed infection Severe "nosocomial infection is unlikely" Governor

                    Feb 14, 2020 12:01New type pneumoniaIt was newly found that a man in his 70s was infected with the new coronavirus in Wakayama Prefecture. The symptoms are severe. The man had been temporarily hospitalized on the 13th at a hospital where a male doctor in his 50s who had been infected was working, but Governor Nisaka of Wakayama Prefecture said, It is unlikely that the infection has spread in hospitals since it was first started. "

                    The newly confirmed infection was a male farmer in his 70s living in Wakayama Prefecture.

                    At a Saiseikai Arita Hospital in Yuasa-cho, Wakayama Prefecture, a male surgeon in her 50s was found to be infected with the new coronavirus on the 13th, one colleague's male doctor and two men who have been seen have pneumonia. The prefecture was proceeding with the examination.

                    As a result, it was confirmed that one male in his 70s who had a medical history had been infected with the new coronavirus.

                    According to the prefecture, this man had symptoms such as vomiting on the 1st of this month, and after consulting a medical institution in the prefecture, was admitted to the Saiseikai Arita Hospital on the 6th and transferred to another hospital on the 13th.

                    The fact that men have severe symptoms and are not sufficiently deaf can say that they do not know if they have stayed in China recently or have contacted people from China. The male physician, who had been previously infected, had been on medical treatment for three to five days since the onset of symptoms such as fever, but since Wednesday he has been receiving medical treatment at home from Wakayama Prefecture. According to Governor Nisaka, "This man is not likely to have spread in the hospital because the male doctor has been in the hospital since he did not come to the hospital."

                    The prefecture is urgently scrutinizing the remaining two patients with pneumonia for infection.

                    In addition, I visited the internal medicine department of Saiseikai Arita Hospital on the 18th of last month, and decided to conduct another virus test for women in their 70s who were negative as a result of the test because they had symptoms of pneumonia.

                        Patient at infected doctor's hospital tests positive for coronavirus
                        KYODO NEWS KYODO NEWS - 1 hour ago - 19:08 | All, Japan

                        WAKAYAMA, Japan - A man in his 70s who was treated at a hospital in western Japan where a doctor was recently confirmed to have been infected with a new coronavirus has also tested positive for it, local officials said Friday, adding that the two apparently never had any contact.

                        Wakayama Gov. Yoshinobu Nisaka said, however, he does not think infections are spreading inside the Saiseikai Arida Hospital in Yuasa, where the man, a farmer, was briefly hospitalized from last week.

                        A local government official warned that infections could be spreading outside of the medical facility as the man developed symptoms before he visited the hospital on Feb. 6.

                        So far, more than 250 people in Japan -- 218 of whom are passengers and crew from a cruise ship quarantined in Yokohama -- have been found to be infected with the pneumonia-causing virus...

                          Coronavirus: 'Stealth outbreak' fears as Japan struggles to find links to new cases nationwide


                          febr 14, 2020


                          TOKYO - A surgeon and a patient at the same Wakayama hospital, near Osaka, have been infected with the coronavirus, officials said on Friday (Feb 14), with three other new cases surfacing in Tokyo and Okinawa.

                          These developments come a day after Japan reported its first coronavirus-related death - a woman in her 80s in Kanagawa prefecture, south of Tokyo.

                          Japan's 35th case is a female taxi driver in her 60s in Okinawa, who is suspected to have ferried passengers of the Diamond Princess cruise ship when they disembarked in the prefectural capital of Naha on Feb 1.

                          The country's 36th and 37th cases are both linked to an infected Tokyo taxi driver, who is the son-in-law of the elderly woman who died. The man, who is in his 70s, had attended a new year's gathering on board a 'yakatabune' boat cruise last month.

                          An employee of the yakatabune, as well as an employee of a taxi driver's union, were confirmed to have been infected on Friday.

                          Domestic media cited experts as wondering if a "stealth outbreak" might already be underway in Japan.

                          Tohoku University Professor Hitoshi Oshitani told Jiji Press that efforts should be devoted to reducing the speed of contagion and treating the severely ill, as an epidemic is "likely occurring to some extent".

                          None of the new cases have cited any recent overseas travel, let alone to Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak. This has left officials perplexed as to how an emerging bunch of cases around Tokyo and in Wakayama - which borders Osaka - have occurred.
