Fukuoka Prefecture to Open Online Medical Center

In preparation for a simultaneous outbreak of the next wave of new coronavirus and influenza, Fukuoka Prefecture has announced that it has prepared a supplementary budget plan for establishing an online medical center. According to the report, Fukuoka Prefecture has prepared a new supplementary budget of 15.4 billion yen. This means home care patients can receive medical treatment and prescriptions for fever reducers and other drugs online 24 hours a day. A new system will also be established to check the congestion of fever outpatient clinics via smartphones and other devices. To help restaurants in a challenging business environment recover their sales, the prefecture will begin issuing premium meal coupons in February of next year, which can be used at restaurants certified by the prefecture as having infection control measures.
