Q7 Where can I get an inspection?

A7 The CR test (or antigen test) prescribed by the Act on Confirmation of Infection is a returnee, a close contact, or a close contact.
 This is done for those who suspect that there is a possibility of infection as a result of a doctor's consultation.
As a result of a doctor's consultation at a returnee from an endemic area or a close contact of an infected person, or at a consultation destination, it is necessary to have an examination.
If you are diagnosed, you will be tested by one of the following:

◆Information Disclosure

Q34 About outbreak situation of new coronavirus patient in Yokohama-shi, we want you to announce location wards.

A34 Regarding information disclosure in the event of an infectious disease, Article 16, Paragraph 1 of the Infectious Diseases Law states, "Actively disseminate information necessary for prevention and treatment.
On the other hand, paragraph 2 of the same article states, "In publishing information, we must protect personal information.
It must be noted that the city must keep in mind that, based on this concept, the city will refer to the publication of the country and prefecture and refer to personal information.
We announce with consideration.
 At first, regarding the publication of the number of patients to be distinguished, consideration should be given to the privacy of patients and reputational damage to the area.
There was, but, based on increase of the number of infected people in the city afterwards, we publish the cumulative distinction occurrence situation on Motoichi homepage after April 10.
We will update it about once a week, so please check it.
- URL
  https://translate-en.city.yokohama.lg.jp/city-info/koho-kocho/koho/topics/corona-data.html.html.
 

We want you to announce the number of patients in Q35 distinction every day. Is there a particularly high risk of infection in wards where the number of ward patients increases?

The occurrence of A35 patients varies from ward to ward due to geographical conditions and the occurrence of clusters.
Motoichi homepage based on the fact that there is a possibility that it will lead to the identification of individuals by making announcements every day while there are wards with few patients.
The status of distinction is generally updated approximately once a week.
The number of distinguished patients is, in principle, based on their resident certificate's in principle, in principle, different from the information indicating the current location and the location of the infection.

Q36 We want you to announce the name, characteristics, countermeasures, etc. of the case where the cluster occurred.

A36 Regarding information disclosure when an infectious disease occurs, "information necessary for prevention and treatment" according to the provisions of the Infectious Diseases Law.
It has been announced that there is a risk that the use and traffic of specific areas, facilities and transportation will increase infectious diseases.
When we judge that there is, we announce the information as city.
 In addition, about publication of Name of the facility is made when it is difficult to identify a close contact person in a facility where the user cannot be identified.
When outbreak of mass infection (cluster) is suspected by, we announce Name of the facility) is suspected.
 Given concerns about the privacy of patients and reputational damage to the area, when publishing individual information,
We will continue to pay attention to the protection of personal information and respond accordingly.
 As a result of cluster analysis, the government has set up a social gathering with drinking, eating and drinking for a large number of people and a long time, and a conversation without a mask.
We are calling for attention as "five scenes" where the risk of infection increases regarding "shared living in a small space" and "switching to a place".
 - Cabinet Secretariat URL: https://corona.go.jp/proposal/ (external site)
Even if a cluster occurs, it is important to take thorough basic infection control measures to prevent the spread of infection.
Frequent hand washing, cough etiquette including wearing a mask, and prevention of droplet infection by saliva due to facing each other and not sitting, etc.
We ask that you secure a distance of about 1-2m (social distance) and provide appropriate ventilation.
 

Q37 We want you to announce the symptoms of the mildly ill in the press release.

A37 For details of the symptom column described in the attached document of the press release document, the state at the time of diagnosis is described.
For mildly ill people, it may be difficult to distinguish between symptoms caused by the new coronavirus infection and symptoms due to chronic illness.
Due to multiple opinions regarding the description of symptoms other than at the time of onset, specific symptoms have been canceled.

Q38 I want people infected to be announced by nationality.

A38 Information is disclosed when an infectious disease occurs, taking into account both the spread of infection and personal information, referring to the contents announced by the national and prefectural governments.
Nationality is not subject to disclosure because it cannot be distinguished from temporary travelers or residents.

◆Inspection System

Q39 Regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms or the risk of infection such as close contact, we would like you to have a free test as many times as possible. We want anyone of specific occupation, group, facility resident to inspect at public expense.

A39 It is important for those who are suspected of being infected to carry out the PCR test efficiently.
If you have not traveled to an endemic area or have no history of close contact, you will need to confirm the possibility of other diseases, so your GP will be required.
Information on consultation at general medical institutions. As a result of the consultation, if the doctor deems that the examination is necessary by comprehensive judgment,
The system allows you to guide the inspection in a familiar place, and the self-pay for the inspection at this time is free.
If you are worried about infection, please consult your local medical institution first.

Q40 If the symptoms do not become severe, do you not test?

In carrying out the A40 inspection, based on the standards set by the government, it is said that it falls under a close contact by a public health center survey.
In addition to conducting tests for those who are judged and those who require a doctor as a result of consultation with a family doctor, etc., hospitals, schools, schools, etc.
If the risk of infection is considered to increase, such as in facilities for the elderly, a wide range of tests are conducted as necessary.
For this reason, more than 90% of those newly confirmed in the city are mild or asymptomatic.

We want you to announce medical institution carrying out Q41 examination on the Internet and be able to receive medical examination freely.

A41 If you wish to have a consultation with a cold-like symptom, if you have no travel history or close contact history, including the possibility of other diseases,
Because it is necessary to confirm, we will first guide you to have your family doctor or other nearby clinics to consult for a consultation.
If you do not recognize the medical institution you are consulting with, at the call center of the prefecture or city, you will receive a medical institution that has received prior consent.
We will guide you individually, but the medical treatment system of medical institutions that cooperate and the number of patients that can be accepted vary depending on the facility.
 In order to prevent the spread of infection, the medical institution where the consultation is conducted prepares before the consultation and coordinates visits with those who are consulted with other symptoms to prevent the spread of infection.
You need to do it.
Those who have not been able to adjust medical institution consultations by publishing places so that anyone can view them are preparing for medical institutions.
In order to avoid confusion in the medical provision system, such as consulting a hospital directly after hours, we will not disclose the name.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Q42 Do you not carry out inspection for citizens all at once?

A42 The negativeness of the test results only indicates the negativeness at the time of sample collection, has a large population, and has a lot of movement from surrounding prefectures.
In Motoichi, it does not indicate that it will continue to be negative. In addition, the current test method is limited and positive.
Even so, there are a certain number of people who have negative results, so the infection is based on close contact history and comprehensive judgment based on a doctor's consultation.
Inspections are conducted mainly for those who are deemed to be highly likely.

Q43 I want to know where the inspection can be carried out at my own expense. What is the inspection cost? If the result is positive, is there a public expenditure subsidy?

A43 Inspections conducted at the request of the individual, regardless of the judgment of the public health center or doctor, are performed to prevent the spread of infection.
Because it is different from administrative inspection, we do not guide in public health center.
There is no particular rule on the cost, and it can be set freely.
There are various methods of testing, and it is acceptable to use it for diagnosis on the presence or absence of infection except for tests based on consultations with public health centers and doctors.
Because it is not possible, even if the result is positive, it may be necessary to have a new administrative inspection.
(Please check with the inspection company in advance.)
Regardless of the test results, all test costs will be borne by the applicant.
Because it is difficult to understand the fees, quality of tests, and post-test responses of medical institutions and testing institutions that undertake self-inspections.
It has been announced since January 2021.
