COVID-19 Outbreak: Okayama, Japan #1

Publication date:2021-05-26
In response to the surging COVID cases in Japan’s Okayama Prefecture where AMDA is headquartered, AMDA has dispatched one nurse to a medical facility that temporarily houses infected persons run by the Okayama Prefectural Government on 25 May 2021. 

Okayama has been under the state of emergency since 16 May due to the worsening COVID situation, and although it is scheduled to be lifted on the 31st, the extension seems more likely.

On a trial basis, the Okayama Prefectural Government has been operating the temporary treatment/waiting center for those who are yet to be hospitalized. Allowing the COVID patients to receive various care such as medical observation and oxygen administration services, preparations are now underway for its full operation in late May.

The nurse was dispatched in response to the municipality’s request. Meanwhile, AMDA has been calling on volunteers through its pool of medical personnel for additional dispatch which could occur in the course of time.
