Sunday’s Asahi wrote that many local governments are running into difficulties tracking the health condition of the close to 100,000 coronavirus patients currently recuperating at home nationwide. They are concerned that there will be a sharp rise in the number of patients whose health condition suddenly deteriorates. As such, some municipalities are planning to launch makeshift field hospitals to accommodate such patients. Sankei said the Tokyo Metropolitan Government is mulling the idea of converting some of the Paralympic event venues into field hospitals to deal with the surging number of patients with mild or moderate symptoms.
