Prime Minister Kishida Postponed A Trip After Testing Positive For COVID


Everyone is susceptible to the COVID-19 virus, regardless of whether they belong to a marginalized group or are in the public spotlight.

This happened to Japan's highest individual.

The Prime Minister Kishida postponed a trip after testing positive for COVID.

After discovering he was infected with COVID-19, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida canceled his upcoming trips to Africa and the Middle East.

According to Noriyuki Shikata, Cabinet Secretary for Public Affairs at the Prime Minister's Office, Kishida is being isolated after developing a mild fever and cough late Saturday.

A PCR test revealed that he had been infected with the coronavirus.

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a test for detecting genetic material from a particular organism, such as a virus, COVID-19.

The prime minister, 65 years old, had been on vacation for the past week but was expected back at work on Monday.

Kishida will now only be able to participate in a conference on African development via remote participation, which is scheduled to take place later this month in Tunisia.

Moreover, he canceled his planned trip to the Middle East, which was to have included stops in Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

Kishida has put off his overseas plans because his government is losing support because of questions about its ties to the Unification Church and how it is handling the pandemic.

The church was started in South Korea in the 1950s.

The links between the ruling Liberal Democratic Party and the church have been in the spotlight since the man suspected of killing former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the religious group put his mother in debt.


Even though Japan has a lot of immunizations, there have been a lot more cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the last few weeks.

His immediate family members are considered close friends, so he must stay there alone for the next three days.

On August 12, Kishida got his fourth COVID-19 vaccination.

Since July, not only Kishida's secretary has tested positive, but so has Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno.
