COVID-19 in Japan: Public Health and Medical Systems

5/23/2020; 57 minutes

How is Japan responding to the COVID crisis? Until late March 2020, Japan reported only few cases and pursued what was called a cluster buster strategy, namely to strictly contain clustered outbreaks only. Since then, however, there has been a sharp increase in cases and a state of emergency has been declared. What is the situation of Japans health care system now, and what is the public health situation more generally? Are the hospitals ready for this crisis? Are healthcare workers in jeopardy? Listen to Professor Ulrike Schaede and her guests, who are medical doctors and a public health policy expert on how Japan is tackling the health crisis. Recorded on 05/05/2020. (#35969)
