Initiative taken to prevent Coronavirus from spreading among school students
The Japanese government will distribute up to 800,000 COVID-19 antigen test kits to kindergartens and schools from early September this year.
The plan is included in the latest version of draft revisions to the government's basic policy dealing with the spread of the pandemic, according to local news.
The initiative has been taken to restrain the spread of Coronavirus among school students. According to the draft revisions, the antigen test kits are prepared for the occasion that students display symptoms such as a fever, but are unable to see a doctor or return home immediately.
The test kits will be distributed to kindergartens, elementary schools as well as junior high schools, mainly for use by teachers, staff and fourth-graders or older. The government will also require local authorities to support efforts for the vaccination of teachers and staff. Local Boards of education and private school authorities will be encouraged to cooperate with universities implementing inoculations.
