However (and this seems to be the only positive data), the Japanese authorities have informed the rest of the world that no positive person for the variant has crossed national borders or had contact with friends, relatives or, in any case, people residing abroad. . However, the situation must be monitored because, precisely because of this new strain, in Japan, the infections are going back to the point that more stringent containment measures have had to be applied.
Japan informs about the new variant
“The Japanese variant that resists vaccines is spreading and the Olympics are at risk”. This is the news from Tokyo, which it was preparing to organize the next Olympics, for 23 July. The event had already been postponed last year, right at the home of the health emergency that hit the whole world. Responsible for the possible second postponement this time around is a new strain called Eek.
According to the Japanese public broadcaster, it would have caused 70% of the infections registered in the hospital of the capital, the Tokyo Medical and Dental University Medical Hospital. The most worrying aspect of the whole affair would be the probable resistance of the same to vaccines and antibodies developed by the recovered. However, the question is all to be explored on a scientific level. In the meantime, however, we should worry about making sure that Japan closes all borders and that the airspace is closed to people from Japan!
