Fuji TV reported at noon on the finding that the GOJ is considering removing COVID-19 patients with mild or no symptoms from the list of those who need to be hospitalized and instead have them self-quarantine at home or in hotels. The network said while COVID-19 is currently classified as a Category II designated infectious disease, which requires patients to be hospitalized, some point out that patients with mild or no symptoms are putting a heavy strain on medical institutions in terms of number of beds. The network said the GOJ is planning to announce new measures to deal with COVID-19 in the near future.
