Japanese Embassy in China

The Embassy of Japan in the People’s Republic of China is issuing a warning to its nationals residing in the country due to a surge in respiratory diseases.

According to the National Health and Family Planning Commission, the increase in respiratory diseases is attributed to known pathogens, predominantly influenza viruses, although the primary pathogen varies by age group. While influenza viruses are widespread across all age groups, the 1-4 age group is most affected by rhinoviruses, the 5-14 age group by mycoplasma and adenoviruses, the 15-59 age group by rhinoviruses and the novel coronavirus, and those over 60 by the human metapneumovirus and the common coronavirus.

The Beijing Center for Disease Prevention and Control reports that the number of patients with ‘notifiable infectious diseases’ in Beijing was 14,744 from November 6 to 12, 37,293 from November 13 to 19, and 72,475 from November 20 to 26.
