Japan: COVID cases hit record, hospitals overwhelmed
#1
Japan is facing its worst COVID-19 outbreak since the beginning of the pandemic.

The country recorded 25,146 new infections Thursday, the highest ever and more than 10 times the daily count from a month ago. There were 33 deaths.

The government is working to squelch the outbreak through social distancing and mitigation measures, in addition to encouraging vaccinations. It extended the state of emergency for Tokyo through Sept. 12 and expanded it to include the neighboring prefectures of Ibaraki and Tochigi, as well as the old capital city Kyoto, Yoshihide Suga announced Tuesday.

Hospitals are facing a shortage of beds, and growing numbers of people are being forced to recover at home. Japan must take the cases of those waiting to be admitted into the hosptial into consideration, he said.
