Dozens of U.S. military have contracted COVID-19 on the Japanese island of Okinawa




On the territory of the American military bases on the Japanese island of Okinawa, 61 new cases of infection with the coronavirus COVID-19 were detected among US troops. This was reported by Xinhua on Sunday, July 12.





This information was a “blow” to the Okinawa authorities. Quarantine has already been introduced at two military bases.

The governor of Okinawa Prefecture Danny Tamaki noted at a press conference that this information was a “blow” and caused “extreme regret”, adding that he cannot but doubt the anti-epidemic measures taken by the American side.

It is indicated that quarantine has already been introduced at the Futenma and Camp Hansen military bases in central Okinawa.

“There are several US military bases on Okinawa, such as Kadena, Futenma, and Camp Hansen. The situation with COVID-19 at these bases is usually not disclosed to the outside world and is not taken into account in the official statistics of the prefecture,” the statement said.
