When symptoms become severe, let's consult a medical institution.
Note: The information posted below is quoted from the website of the Bureau of Social Welfare and Public Health, Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

(1) Period when it is recommended to refrain from going out

  • Since the risk of infecting others is particularly high during the first 5 days after the onset of symptoms, refrain from going out for 5 days, with the date of onset as day 0 (if no symptoms, the date of sample collection is day 0).
  • and
  • If the symptoms continue on the 5th day, it is recommended to refrain from going out and wait until about 24 hours have passed since the fever has subsided and the symptoms such as sputum and sore throat have subsided .

Recommended treatment period

(2) Consideration for those around you

Until 10 days have passed, there is a possibility that the virus will be discharged, so please take care not to spread it to those around you, such as wearing a non-woven mask and refraining from contact with high-risk people such as the elderly.
If symptoms such as coughing and sneezing continue for more than 10 days after the onset of symptoms, practice cough etiquette such as wearing a mask.
