Two people have died in Japan after being vaccinated with Moderna
In Yaonii, the causes of the deaths of two men at the age of 30 are being investigated. Both men died in August, within days of receiving the second dose of Moderna vaccine.
Japan has stopped the use of 1.63 million doses of Moderna, which have been delivered to 863 vaccination centers nationwide, after domestic distributor Takeda Pharmaceutical received reports of identified contaminants in some of the shipment's vials.
In Japan, the first case of a new type of highly infectious "delta" variant of COVID-19 has been confirmed, carries a mutation similar to that of the "Alpha" -stamp
There have been eight reported cases of this delta subtype outside of Japan, but its infectivity remains unknown.
A new type of "delta" variant was discovered in a patient at a subsidiary hospital earlier this month. It contained the L452R mutation, which is seen in the delta variant, as well as the N501S mutation, which resembles the N501Y mutation, which occurs in the alphas.
The minister in charge of coronavirus measures said that a state of emergency would be imposed in eight more prefectures in Japan
The state of emergency will affect the prefectures of Hokkaido, Miyagi, Gifu, Aiti, Mie, Shiga, Okayama and Hiroshima. It will take effect from August 27 to September 12.
The reason for the expansion of the NA zones is due to the rapid spread of the Delta strain. The government is struggling to control the coronavirus situation, as people are tired of living in a restricted environment and many companies ignore repeated requests to transfer people to remote work.
