Japan says an increasing percentage of people are dying after developing moderate symptoms of COVID-19.
Japan’s National Center for Global Health and Medicine says an increasing percentage of people are dying after developing moderate symptoms of COVID-19. It also says many of them had pre-existing conditions that worsened after they became infected.
The center says a smaller percentage of COVID-19 patients has been developing serious pneumonia in Japan as the vaccination rate increases, while more have died because the coronavirus causes their pre-existing conditions to worsen.
Deaths from Covid in Japan are continuing to breach record highs even though the seventh wave of cases started to decline on the 24th August 2022.
