Japan Corona Update: Once again in Japan, due to the increasing havoc of Coronavirus, companies are temporarily closing their offices. This has also put a guard on the production. Japan has so far handled the coronavirus pandemic better than most advanced economies. Automakers Toyota Motor Corp and Daihatsu Motor Co last week halted production line shifts due to workers getting infected.
KFC Holdings Japan Ltd had to close some of its food restaurants and swap employees to fill the gap. At the same time, Japan Post Holdings Co had to close more than two hundred of its post offices. According to the data of the World Health Organization, more than 1.4 million new corona patients have appeared in Japan in the last one week. Companies are once again scrambling to deal with Corona.
Companies managing by making such rules for employees
Regarding how automakers in Japan are dealing with Corona, Subaru Corp’s Chief Financial Officer Katsuuki Mizuma recently told the media, “We have divided meal times into multiple slots and asked employees to Sit in the same direction and don’t talk to anyone.” Japan’s new corona cases are the highest ever. On Wednesday alone, 2.5 lakh new infected were revealed. The number of patients admitted to hospitals and the number of dead is also increasing, but due to corona vaccination and booster dose, the current situation is not more frightening than the earlier corona wave.
