Tokyo uses database to record cases after relying on fax machines
On Tuesday the Japanese capital reported 309 new cases
Japan’s capital Tokyo has begun using a central database to record cases in the country after relying for months on a fax machine.
According to reports, local health centres had been faxing in a case sheet per patient which was then counted up and announced as the day’s infection numbers.
Some critics said the method led to delays as faxes had to be sent in by 09:00 and patients could also be counted twice.
Many businesses and government offices still rely on fax machines, according to the Asahi Shimbun.
The new database aims to take pressure off public health officials and allows patients to self-report their symptoms.
On Tuesday, the Japanese capital reported 309 new cases of the virus, bringing the total to 14,000. It is the eighth consecutive day that the city reported more than 200 infections.
