Symptoms of COVID-19

Individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2 may display some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Cold symptoms and/or fever above 37.5°C (99.5°F) which lasts for 4 days or more (2 days or more for the elderly or those with preexisting health conditions)
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue/weariness
  • Loss of smell/taste

These symptoms may take several days (up to two weeks) to appear in individuals after time of infection. Infected individuals are considered to be contagious even during this incubation period.

A majority of individuals (as high as 80%) may not show any symptoms, or may display only slight symptoms. Even in such cases, such individuals should be considered contagious.

Pre-existing conditions put individuals at a higher risk of developing severe or life-threatening symptoms in the event of infection.

MHLW 13 High-risk Symptoms (28 April, 2020)

The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare published a list of 13 High-risk Symptoms on 28 April, 2020. An individual with any one of these symptoms (without an alternative condition which explains it) should be considered at high risk of having contracted COVID-19 and should consult their local COVID-19 consultation center immediately.

Expression/Outward appearance
  1. Looking extremely pale
  2. Lips turn purple
  3. Acting different than usual / appear strange
    Difficulty with breathing, etc.
  4. Breathing has become rough (number of breaths increase)
  5. Sudden difficulty breathing
  6. Difficulty breathing after short periods of movement in daily life
  7. Pain in the chest
  8. Can't lay down / can't breathe unless sitting
  9. Breathing with the shoulders
  10. Begin wheezing abruptly (within about 2 hours between spurts)
    Sense of awareness, etc.
  11. Acting absentmindedly (responses weak)
  12. In a haze (no replies)
  13. Irregular pulse, skipping beats

Spread of COVID-19 (Clusters and the Three Cs)

The primary method of preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Japan is through the tracking and isolating of confirmed cases and suspect cases. By isolating these individuals, and by confirming the routes of transmission, Japanese authorities attempt to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

  • Confirmed Case: someone who has PCR-tested positive for COVID-19
  • Suspect Case: someone who has been in close contact (濃厚接触者; nōkō sesshokusha) with a confirmed case

The formation of clusters is one of the largest disruptions to this method of tracking and isolating. Some carriers of SARS-CoV-2 are more contagious than others. A cluster refers to a situation where a single, highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 carrier spreads the virus to multiple people in the same setting in a short time span. Tracking the route of infection refers to identifying which highly contagious carrier a new confirmed case received the infection from. The concept of clusters was initially brought to public attention when they were formed in night clubs and eateries.

The concept of clusters eventually lead to the concept of the Three Cs, (3つの密 or 3密; mittsu no mitsu or sanmitsu in Japanese). Each of the Three Cs describes a situation or condition in which the spread of viruses is more probable. The presence of any one of these Three Cs increases the likelihood of virus transmission. However the probability of virus transmission is at its highest when the conditions of all Three Cs overlap in the same setting; it is these settings which must be avoided if the spread of COVID-19 is to be curbed.

Because of the time lag (up to 2 weeks) between when a person gets infected with the virus and when they display symptoms, it is impossible to know at the time if one has been in close contact with a highly contagious carrier. That is why it is recommended to avoid Three Cs situations at all times, even if everyone present appears healthy.

The Three Cs are the following:

Closed Spaces (密閉空間)

Closed spaces with poor ventilation (密閉空間; mippei kūkan)

Any place where the air inside stays inside. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Apartments
  • Rooms in a house
  • Offices
  • Theaters, clubs, restaurants, etc.
(The adverse effects of these places can be mitigated in part by keeping doors/windows open, running ventilators, etc.)

Crowded Places (密集場所)

Crowded places with many people nearby (密集場所; misshū basho)

Any place with large numbers of people present. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Parks
  • Offices
  • Classrooms
  • Theaters, clubs, restaurants, etc.
(The adverse effects of these places can be mitigated in part by maintaining distance from others, etc.)

Close-contact Settings (密接場面)

Close-contact settings such as close-range conversations (密接場面; missetsu bamen)

Any setting which two or more people are actively engaged with each other. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Conversations
  • Singing karaoke
  • Meetings
  • Classes
  • Meals (taken by 2 or more people)
(The adverse effects of these settings can be mitigated in part by wearing a facemask, not touching your face, not sharing objects, disinfecting those objects which you must share, etc.)

"5 Situations" that increase the risk of infection (MHLW)

感染リスクが高まる「5つの場面」

External link: MHLW 5 situations pdf file (Japanese, .pdf file)

The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has highlighted five situations which increase the risk of infection of COVID-19. The five situations are as follows:

  1. Social gatherings with drinking alcohol
    • Drinking alcohol improves mood and at the same time decreases attention. In addition, hearing is dulled and it leads to speaking in a louder voice.
    • The risk of infection increases when large numbers of people are in a small space for a long time.
    • In addition, sharing glasses and chopsticks increases the risk of infection.
  2. Long feasts in large groups
    • Long-term meals, dinner receptions, drinking alcohol at night increase the risk of infection compared to a short meal.
    • The risk of infection is increased by eating and drinking in a large group of people, for example, 5 or more people, because in groups you have to talk louder and droplets of saliva spread more often.
  3. Conversation without a mask
    • Talking at close range without a mask increases the risk of airborne or micro-droplet infection.
    • Cases of infection without masks were observed during gatherings in karaoke machines.
    • Please be careful when traveling by car or bus.
  4. Living together in a small limited space
    • Living together in a small limited space increases the risk of infection because the enclosed space is shared by several people for a long time.
    • There have been reports of suspected infections in common areas such as dormitory bedrooms and bathrooms.
  5. Switching locations
    • When you move to another location, such as when you take a break in a workplace, the risk of infection may increase due to the feeling of relaxation and changes of the environment.
    • Suspicious cases of infection were identified in breaking rooms, smoking areas and changing rooms.

COVID-19 Consultation Centers in Akita

Coronavirus Consultation Centers are called 帰国者・接触者相談センター (kikokusha / sesshokusha sōdan sentā; lit.: "Consultation Centers for Returnees and Persons in Contact") in Japanese. Regional branches of 保健所 (hokenjo; "Health Care Centers"), operated by Akita Prefecture, fill the role of local Coronavirus Consultation Centers; they are often referred to simply as 保健所, rather than 帰国者・接触者相談センター. Note that Akita City operates its own health care center independent from the prefecture.

If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (including the MHLW 13 High-risk symptoms listed above in this article), have a Japanese speaker call the local call center for your area. If the local call center is unavailable, have them call one of the all-prefecture call centers. If no one is on hand who speaks Japanese, call the English call center.

COVID-19 vaccines in Japan

The current plan is for COVID-19 vaccines to be administered to the following groups of people in this order:

  1. Health care professionals and others who provide medical treatment for COVID-19 patients and others directly
  2. Persons aged 65 or higher
  3. Staff who interact directly with people having underlying conditions or users of elderly care facilities
  4. The general public (persons aged 12 or higher)

Local governments will be in charge of inoculation procedures within their jurisdictions. Vaccines will be administered free of charge to all eligible individuals.

Japan currently imports COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech (US/Germany). After two doses, this vaccine is about 95% effective at preventing the onset of COVID-19 symptoms. The high percentage of effectiveness means that the risk of side effects is also high; side effects include fever, pain in the area of injection, headache, and, in extremely rare cases, anaphylaxis. Individuals receiving vaccines will be required to stay on site under observation of medical professionals for 15 to 30 minutes in order to receive the necessary treatment should anaphylaxis occur.

Japan has also approved, and imported quantities of, the Moderna (US) and AstraZeneca (UK) vaccines.

Johnson & Johnson has submitted an application for approval of their COVID-19 vaccine in Japan as well.

Important: Even an inoculated individual can contract COVID-19 asymptomatically and spread it to others! Therefore, even after inoculation, it is still necessary to follow the existing preventative measures (social distancing, avoiding the 3Cs, washing hands thoroughly, wearing a mask, etc.) to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Refer to these pages for up-to-date information in English on COVID-19 vaccinations in Japan:

List of reported COVID-19 cases in Akita Prefecture

The information in this section has been obtained from this page of the Akita Prefectural website.

Case Number refers to the number among all cases reported at Health Care Centers within Akita Prefecture. "~ HCC Area" under Residence refers to residence within the area of jurisdiction of the respective regional health care centers listed above. Cases whose residence is not listed, or is listed as outside the prefecture, sort in the Residence column by the health care center area within Akita Prefecture where they were reported when it is known.

Note that dates listed in the Date Confirmed Positive column are the dates that each case was confirmed positive. These are not the dates that their information was publicized (sometimes they are publicized same day, but not always). News outlets (NHK, etc) typically record their daily tallies based on dates publicized, not confirmed positive, so the numbers of cases by date in this table will not match news outlets' daily tallies.

This list is current as of 17:15, 29 July 2021 (JST).

SARS-CoV-2 variants

Like all viruses, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, changes over time. Most changes have little to no impact on the virus' properties. However, occasionally a change may alter how easily the virus spreads, the severity of the disease it causes, or the efficacy of treatment against it. Such variant strains of SARS-CoV-2, as designated by the World Health Organization (WHO), are listed in this section. They are split into Variants of Concern (VOC; higher severity) and Variants of Interest (VOI; lesser severity). Note that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States also has made provisions for Variants of High Consequence (VOHC), a third level of even higher severity than Variants of Concern; no variant strains yet have reached this level.

WHO recommends referring to variants by Greek letter labels, both for ease/accuracy of reporting and to avoid stigma against the nations/areas that have discovered them. The Greek letter labels are applied in order based on the date of classification of each variant as a Variant of Concern/Interest.

Information in this section has been primarily sourced from this WHO page and this CDC page, as well as other links in this section on this wiki, and is current as of 13:11, 29 June 2021 (JST).

Variants of Concern

A SARS-CoV-2 Variant of Concern (VOC) is a variant that meets the definition of a VOI and, through a comparative assessment, has been demonstrated to be associated with one or more of the following changes at a degree of global public health significance:

  • Increase in transmissibility or detrimental change in COVID-19 epidemiology; or
  • Increase in virulence or change in clinical disease presentation; or
  • Decrease in effectiveness of public health and social measures or available diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics.

Variants of Interest

A SARS-CoV-2 isolate is a Variant of Interest (VOI) if, compared to a reference isolate, its genome has mutations with established or suspected phenotypic implications, and either:

  • has been identified to cause community transmission/multiple COVID-19 cases/clusters, or has been detected in multiple countries; OR
  • is otherwise assessed to be a VOI by WHO in consultation with the WHO SARS-CoV-2 Virus Evolution Working Group.

CLAIR FAQs for Contracting Organizations

CLAIR has issued several FAQs to Contracting Organizations concerning JETs' work duties and their relationship to the coronavirus pandemic. While CLAIR does not have authority over each CO's decision-making process, these FAQs serve as guidelines for COs when they make decisions regarding JETs. Remember that these questions are being asked from the perspective of Contracting Organizations.

CLAIR FAQ (12 March, 2020)

  1. Our ALTs have no work to do because of the temporary school closure. May we grant them special, paid leave?
    If Japanese staff are still attending work normally, special leave should not be given to ALTs only. However, this is only CLAIR's viewpoint, and we do not prohibit the granting of special leave at the discretion of the Contracting Organization.
  2. Our ALTs have no work to do because of the temporary school closure. May we put them on unpaid leave?
    CLAIR does not authorize the decision to forcefully put JETs on unpaid leave.
  3. Our ALTs have no work to do because of the temporary school closure. May we require our ALTs to take yearly paid leave during this time?
    The taking of yearly paid leave should not be forced. However, if the JET wishes to paid leave during this time, there is no problem. On the other hand, if the JET does not have enough remaining yearly paid leave, failure to attend work will be counted as absence from work. Contracting Organizations should consider carefully whether or not this absence from work is for an unavoidable reason.
  4. Our ALTs have no work to do because of the temporary school closure, and they have contacted us saying they have nothing to do. How should we respond?
    ALTs should use this time to improve their abilities, such as improving their teaching skills or studying Japanese.
  5. May we have our ALTs work from home?
    This is possible at the discretion of the Contracting Organization. However, this decision should reflect policy that applies to Japanese staff as well.
  6. A JET participant has expressed interest in temporarily returning to their home country out of fears of contracting COVID-19. Is this possible?
    This may be authorized within the limits of yearly paid leave. However, if the JET does not have enough remaining yearly paid leave, failure to attend work will be counted as absence from work. Contracting Organizations should consider carefully whether or not this absence from work is for an unavoidable reason.
  7. A JET participant returned to their home country temporarily, but has not undergone rehiring procedures as of 1 April. Their yearly paid leave has also run out, and they are absent from work; may we elect not to rehire them?
    According to the JET Programme hiring outline, standard participation on the JET Programme is for a period of one year. Rehiring procedures are necessitated for JET participants on 1 April, 2020 in accordance with their rehiring as Workers Employed for the Fiscal Year. However, as stated above, their period of participation is one year, so their being rehired on 1 April is established as a predetermined condition.
    Even though JET participants are Workers Employed for the Fiscal Year, consideration is given to their special circumstances; please rehire them.
  8. Are there any materials in English regarding COVID-19 measures?
    CLAIR provides information on our website for foreign residents and foreign visitors in Japan. You can find that information here: http://www.clair.or.jp/tabunka/portal/info/information/index.php
  9. How should we handle a JET participant who will finish their contract in April but is unable to return to their home country?
    Currently they may not extend their term of appointment. However, in the event they have difficulty returning to their home country within one month of the end of their term of appointment, please consider providing their return airfare even after the one-month period has passed. Furthermore, if the JET participant wishes to return to their home country before the end of their term of appointment, and the Contracting Organization is in agreement, it is possible to provide their return airfare under the conditions stipulated in the Terms and Conditions Article 9, Section 3. However, please keep in mind that the JET accident insurance coverage period ends 30 April for April arrivals, and 31 August for summer arrivals.
  10. (China/Korea) Will April arrivals be delayed? If they are delayed, when will they arrive?
    The situation regarding COVID-19 is constantly in a state of flux; please contact CLAIR for up-to-date information.
  11. (Brazil/Peru/English-speaking countries) Will April arrivals be delayed?
    Preparations are underway for new JETs to arrive on April 12th as planned. However, the situation regarding COVID-19 is constantly in a state of flux; please contact CLAIR for up-to-date information.
  12. We have received questions from one of our scheduled April arrivals asking when arrivals will take place. What should we do?
    If you receive requests from participants about when arrivals will take place, etc., please refer them to the consulate which issued them their notice of acceptance.
  13. What will happen to the Post-arrival Orientation schedule?
    Deliberations are currently underway regarding the content. Please contact CLAIR for up-to-date information.

Three Ministries & CLAIR FAQ (27 March, 2020)

This FAQ was prepared by the three ministries - MIC (Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications), MOFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), and MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) - in collaboration with CLAIR (Council of Local Authorities for International Relations) to be used as a reference by Contracting Organizations in the event JET Programme participants come to them with questions concerning COVID-19.

  1. What is the state of the spread of COVID-19 in Japan?
    For up-to-date information regarding the situation of the spread of COVID-19 in Japan, please refer to information provided by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare on their website listed below.
    MHLW HP: https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/seisakunitsuite/bunya/newpage_00032.html
    Furthermore, for up-to-date information on the measures being enacted by the Japanese government in response to COVID-19, please refer to the page below.
    Office of the PM HP: https://japan.kantei.go.jp/ongoingtopics/_00011.html
  2. What is the state of JET Programme participants' working conditions?
    For JET Programme participants, as with Japanese staff, we are enforcing a measures such as teleworking and staggered work times to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, if a JET participant wishes to take leave, then it is possible to do so at the discretion of the Contracting Organization. Working conditions and handling of leave will differ based on the situation at each Contracting Organization, so first and foremost, please consult with your Contracting Organization.
  3. How is the situation at schools (school closures, plans to re-open, etc.) at which ALTs work?
    In response to the instructions given by the prime minister on 27 February, and with the view to prevent the risk of infection, MEXT has requested that all schools across the country close. Almost all elementary, junior high and senior high schools complied with this request. Afterward, MEXT issued guidelines for reopening schools on 24 March. As of April, based on conditions in each area, classes are expected to restart (Japanese schools are typically closed for spring break from late March to early April).
    The guidelines state that, even after schools reopen, vigilance must be maintained and COVID-19 measures must absolutely be continued. At schools where cases of COVID-19 are confirmed in students or staff after reopening, appropriate steps shall be taken to place these schools on temporary closure. In addition to the reopening guidelines, MEXT has also issued guidelines for such temporary closures.
    Furthermore, we are petitioning local governments, etc., to be flexible with the measures they take. For example, as with other educational staff, measures such as allowing ALTs to work from home or staggering their work times, even if classes are being conducted, should be pursued to the extent possible based on school and local conditions. Alternatively, if there is no need for ALTs to attend school, they can be allowed to work from home or have their work duties lifted.

  4. What is the state of measures being enacted to ensure the safety of JET Programme participants?
    For their safety, we hope that JET participants will comply with instructions and notices from Contracting Organizations which are in response spread of COVID-19 in the local area.
    In the hypothetical event that a JET participant contracts COVID-19, they should be allowed to take sick leave or, if they display fever or cold-like symptoms which prevent them from performing duties, they should be allowed to take special leave. If a JET participant is confirmed as a person in close contact with a confirmed case, and their continued presence at work could lead to the further spread of COVID-19, they should be allowed to work from home or to have their work duties lifted. We have contacted Contracting Organizations that they should continue to take appropriate measures, such as those listed above, in accordance with their own rules and regulations.
  5. What measures is the JET Programme taking with regard to the spread of COVID-19?
    In light of the spread of COVID-19, we as the JET Programme consider that securing the health and safety of JET participants to be extremely important. We are continuing to monitor the situation and to proceed with measures in accordance with such. Just as an example, we have posted on the CLAIR website multilingual information aimed at foreigners regarding COVID-19, the measures being taken to combat it, and COVID-19 call centers. The link to this website has been disseminated through the CLAIR News mailing list. We continue to update this site as the situation changes.

  6. Are JET Programme participants who are currently working Japan being instructed to remain in Japan? Are they being instructed to return to their home countries?
    As the JET Programme, we are not giving instructions to JET Programme participants to return to their home countries.
  7. Is it possible for JET Programme participants who are currently working in Japan to either return to their home countries temporarily or to cancel their participation on the Programme and return to their home countries permanently?
    If JET participants wish, they may return to their home countries temporarily. But, given the Japanese government's immigration restrictions and the status/availability of commercial flights, it may not be possible for them to return to Japan. We ask that JET participants thoroughly consult with their Contracting Organizations before doing so.
    Additionally, we would hope that JET participants would thoroughly consult with their Contracting Organizations before returning to their home countries permanently before the end of their contracts. Note that, in principle, return airfare is provided only in the event that the term of appointment is completed.
  8. Has this had any impact on the arrival schedule of 2020 new arrivals?
    April arrivals - given the conditions in countries around the world, the arrival timetable has been postponed. The new arrival date will be decided at later date, taking into consideration such factors as the Japanese government's lifting of visa restrictions and quarantine regulations, renewed availability of air travel, etc.
    September arrivals - our current plan is to proceed on schedule. But whatever happens, it is essential that new arrivals both arrive in Japan safely, and be able to proceed to their postings at Contracting Organizations smoothly. Therefore we will continue to carefully monitor the situation and will take any necessary precautions.

CLAIR FAQ #2 (15 April, 2020)

The content of this FAQ updates (and in some cases overrides) the CLAIR FAQ dated 12 March, 2020

  1. (Updated) Even if Japanese staff are attending work, can we authorize our ALTs to work from home or place them on special leave?
    Equal consideration should be given to fairly ensure the health and safety of both ALTs and Japanese teaching staff. However, because the work conditions of an ALT and of a Japanese teacher differ greatly, it is not the case that you must apply identical measures to both of them. Rather, based on the actual situation in each workplace and in the local community, Contracting Organizations are urged to be flexible when taking measures. Also, even with Japanese teachers as well, measures recommended by MEXT may be enacted, such as working from home, or having their work duties lifted, etc.
  2. (Updated) Our ALTs are in a situation where they have few to no classes to assist because of an extension of the temporary school closure. May we put them on unpaid leave?
    CLAIR does not authorize the decision to forcefully put JETs on unpaid leave.
  3. (Updated) Our ALTs are in a situation where they have few to no classes to assist because of an extension of the temporary school closure, and they have contacted us saying they have nothing to do. How should we respond?
    ALTs should take measures based on the actual situation in their communities and schools such as assisting with preparation of class materials, supporting students in their home learning, etc. Additionally, ALTs should use this time to improve their abilities, such as improving their teaching skills or studying Japanese. Furthermore, it isn't necessarily the case that ALTs need to be present at their workplaces to fulfill these duties; rather, it is conceivable that they may be able to perform them at their place of residence, etc. Contracting Organizations should be flexible when adopting measures, ensuring the health and safety of their ALTs.
    (For example, during a school closure) Upon consultation with teaching staff, ALTs could prepare homework for students either during or after the school closure. Or, they could correct students' work and provide feedback. Alternatively, they could write letters or send video messages to students. They could also provide remote lessons online for students with fellow teachers.
  4. (Updated) What should we be careful of when having our ALTs work from home or staggering their work times?
    Your top priority should be the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. Please act in accordance with the Three Ministries & CLAIR FAQ dated 27 March, 2020.
  5. (New) Foreign embassies in Japan are requesting that their nationals decide immediately whether they wish to return home or whether they wish to remain in Japan indefinitely. Our JET participants feel unease after having received this request; how should we handle this?
    Whether they continue to stay in Japan, or whether they return to their home country, the safety of your JET participants should be your top priority. Given the recent spread of COVID-19, Contracting Organizations should thoroughly explain the current situation at schools and in the local community to JETs who feel unease. COs should also not only work to alleviate that unease, but also be flexible in the measures they adopt to handle JET participants' work duties, including such measures as listed in Questions 1, 2 and 3 of this FAQ.
    Furthermore, it is reasonable to assume that there are JET participants who wish to faithfully complete their terms of appointment, but also fear that, if they remain in Japan for the duration of their terms of appointment, they will face difficulty returning to their home countries, such as canceled commercial flights and immigration restrictions. It is for this reason that CLAIR is currently considering making it possible, based on the agreement of both the Contracting Organization and the JET participants, to allow those JET participants to remain past the end of the terms of appointment to continue performing their duties (details about this procedure will be announced at a later date).
    Additionally, in the event you receive a request from a JET participant that they wish to resign their post and return to their home country before the completion of their term of appointment citing reasons related the spread of COVID-19, then, given the state of the world as it is, and considering the JET Programme's role as a program fostering international relations, we urge you to treat that return to their home country as though it were upon the completion of their term of appointment, including, but not limited to, providing their return airfare.
  6. (New) One of our JET participants returned home temporarily but now is no longer able to leave their home country. If their term of appointment ends while they are still unable to leave their country, how should we handle their return airfare expenses?
    Given the situation as described above, in principle, the date of their temporary return to their home country does not count as their having completed their term of appointment, and therefore do not meet the requirements to be eligible for return airfare reimbursement.
  7. (New) Are there any websites that provide information about COVID-19 in multiple languages?
    (Answer omitted because all of the links are included among those listed on this wiki below)
