TBS reported that it has learned from U.S. and Japanese government sources that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is making final arrangements to set up a regional office in Tokyo and planning to announce the opening on the occasion of President Biden’s visit to Japan starting on May 22. The network said the new CDC office is expected to cover East Asia and Oceania and deal with a wide range of public health challenges, including the response to infectious diseases such as COVID-19. The broadcaster also said the governments of the United States and Japan have been stepping up their cooperation in the healthcare sector, including the distribution of vaccines, and that establishing a new CDC office in Tokyo will likely be a new pillar of cooperation.
