Japan wants to simplify COVID survey and deal with viruses like seasonal flu


Japan is considering simplifying the way it handles the coronavirus, sources close to the matter say, and could potentially take a step toward lowering the virus and treating it as the seasonal flu.

In a trial that may begin in mid-September, the government plans to select some medical institutions and ask them to report the number of infections regularly, the sources said Friday. This would pave the way for a shift in the current benchmark for reporting all individuals confirmed to be infected.
