Japan’s CCP Virus Case Rebound Raises Concerns About The Seventh Wave Outbreak

As of Apr 1st, Japan’s government data indicated that the number of new CCP virus cases reported in a week increased in 44 of 47 prefectures, less than two weeks after it fully lifted quasi-emergency measures.

Following the spread of BA.2 subvariant of the Omicron strain, 48,825 new infection cases were confirmed nationwide on Apr 2nd, an increase of about 1,500 from a week earlier, and patients with severe symptoms totaled 518, a decrease of 15 from last Friday.

Having observed that new daily cases have been decreasing for over a month since the Japanese government started implementing quasi-emergency measures in January, Japan ended quasi-emergency measures on Mar 21st in Tokyo and some other areas. In light of a notable surge in infections among teens, Japanese experts called for careful monitoring of the recent case rebound, warning another outbreak of infections might be around the corner.

With the Omicron subvariant becoming a dominant CCP virus strain in the context of easing the control and protection measures, other countries were also experiencing a rise in new daily cases.
