Nikkei reported that over 30,000 Japanese younger than 20 tested positive for the novel coronavirus nationwide in the week ending on Aug. 25, accounting for roughly 20% of all patients. This was the first time for the weekly caseload for this age group to exceed 30,000. As the data indicated the Delta variant’s highly transmissible nature, the paper emphasized the importance for school administrators to take thorough measures to prevent and mitigate infections in schools when the new semester begins across the nation tomorrow.
