On March XNUMX, XNUMXth year of Reiwa, the Nagano Prefecture Countermeasures Headquarters for New Coronavirus Infectious Diseases made the following press release.
Since the beginning of the year, due to the explosive increase in new positives due to the replacement with Omicron strains, the secured bed usage rate has approached 25%. "Medical warning" was issued.
Since then, the increase in the number of new positives has not stopped, and the secured bed usage rate has continued to rise. We have just taken measures based on "Priority measures such as prevention of spread".
With the cooperation of the citizens of the prefecture, the number of new positives was 4,071 for the week until February 44.4, and the secured bed usage rate peaked at 25% on February XNUMX and began to decline. Since mid-March, the number of new positives has turned to an increase again and there are concerns about the future, but the secured bed usage rate has fallen below XNUMX% for eight consecutive days, and the burden on the medical care provision system is being reduced.
Therefore, the "medical alarm" is canceled.
In the Ueda area, infection alert level XNUMX (new coronavirus special warning II) will continue, so please continue to take thorough infection control measures.
