5 situations with a high risk of Covid-19 infection

Source: Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare

1. Parties involving alcohol

  • ​While alcohol lifts people’s spirits, it also makes them less careful. Furthermore, it dulls people’s sense of hearing, making them talk more loudly.
  • The risk is especially high when large groups of people spend extended periods of time in small, confined spaces.
  • The risk is even greater when people share drinks, chopsticks, etc.

2. Eating and drinking in large groups for extended periods of time

  • Long-drawn-out parties, eating and drinking in establishments with contact between customers and staff, as well as late-night barhopping pose a higher risk than dinners over a short amount of time.
  • When gather in large groups, such as with 5 people or more, people start talking more loudly. This means there are more droplets in the air, heightening the risk of infection.

3. Conversations without wearing masks

  • When talking to someone at a close distance without wearing a mask, there is a high risk of infection through (micro-)droplets.
  • There are confirmed cases of infection due to not wearing a mask, in situation such as daytime karaoke sessions.
  • Please also be careful when using public transportation, such as the train or bus.

マスク

4. Living together in a small space

  • People who live together in a small space share the same confined space for an extended period of time. This increases the risk of infection.
  • There are cases of infection that are suspected to have occurred in shared spaces, such as dorm rooms and bathrooms.

共有

5. Changing to a new location

  • When people move to a different space, such as when taking breaks from work, there is a heightened risk of infection, because people drop their guard and enter new environments.
  • There have been confirmed cases of infection in places like break rooms, smoking areas and locker rooms.

10 things we have learned about Covid-19:

  1. As of October 27, around 96,000 people throughout Japan have been confirmed with Covid-19. The largest age group is 20-30.
  2. Of the cases confirmed since June, severe symptoms were confirmed in 8.5% of people aged 60 or higher (0.06% of people died), and in 0.3% of people below 50 (5.7% of people died).
  3. Elderly people and people with preexisting conditions have the highest probability of developing severe symptoms.
  4. Compared to major countries in the world, the rate of infections and Covid-related deaths per capita in Japan is relatively low.
  5. The period a patient can infect other people is from roughly 2 days before- to 7~10 days after the first symptoms.
  6. Less than 20% of patients infect other people. The virus can be controlled by preventing infection in the three Cs (Closed spaces with poor ventilation, Crowded places with many people nearby, close-contact settings such as close-range conversations).
  7. Be extra careful during the 5 situations with heightened risk of infection, such as (dinner-)parties (listed above).
  8. There are two methods to test current infection (PCR- and Antigen tests), and an antibody-test to detect prior infection.
  9. A wait-and-see approach is taken in case of light symptoms. In case of raspatory failure, oxygen-support, and steroid- and antiviral drugs are administered.
  10. Vaccines are being developed. It is currently unknown whether these can prevent infection of an increase in severity. The occurrence of side-effects is inevitable, but rare.
