COVID-19 Outbreak: Okayama, Japan 2 (August-September 2021)

Publication date:2021-09-15
AMDA ended its personnel dispatch to a COVID-19 treatment/waiting center run by the Okayama Prefectural Government in Okayama, Japan, as the facility came to a close on 13 September. 

The center, which was initially set and operated between late May and early June, resumed services on 23 August due to the surging coronavirus cases in the locality.

Immediately after receiving the municipality’s request, AMDA looked for suitable personnel through its own network of medical workers, and sent one nurse to be stationed at the facility. The center took care of patients with COVID-associated hypoxemia that were brought in during the night-time hours.

In line with the declining COVID cases in the prefecture, the municipality ended the center operation the day after the state of emergency was lifted.
