【About the status of support for facilities for the disabled in Yokohama City, where a new coronavirus-infected population (cluster) has occurred】
We would like to report on the status of support for facilities for persons with disabilities in Yokohama, where a group of people infected with the new coronavirus (cluster) is occurring.
Infection of users and staff was confirmed at a disability support facility in Yokohama City, which is also an ORALPEACE project sales partner facility.
Currently, as of December 14, the cumulative total of positive users is 44 (31 users and 13 staff), and 1 positive user is hospitalized, but all others are mild. The room is closed, and medical treatment and follow-up are being carried out in each room and living room, and the staff is mildly ill and is being treated at a medical treatment facility or at home.
On December 13th, the ORALPEACE project received an emergency support request from the director of the cluster generation facility and the director of the non-profit organization Yokohama Adult Guardian Tsubasa, and provided oral hygiene through oral care to avoid aggravation of positive individuals. To achieve this, we have provided the following emergency support.
On December 15th, 100 Oral Peace Clean & Moisture Sprays were urgently shipped, and on the following 16th, we started care to avoid aggravation by thorough oral hygiene.
We would like to provide as much support as possible to preventive care and avoidance of aggravation by oral hygiene for people with severe disabilities who have difficulty brushing their teeth, gargling, or oral care.
