Frequently Asked Questions (Taken from Toyo Keizai Online “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report in Japan”

Q. Why is the number of individuals tested sometimes negative and why are there sometimes sudden large increases in individuals tested?

A. This is due to any corrections later made to the original reports received from each prefecture. Also, when a prefecture which had not previously reported the number of individuals tested is added to the total number for the whole country, this would result in a sudden large increase.

 

Q. Why is this data different from the data reported by other media outlets and local governments?

A. It depends on each individual case, but it is likely due to differences in data sources (for example, from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare or the prefectural governments themselves), cutoff dates/times used to calculate totals, or the scope of data included (whether data from cruise ship passengers, airport inspections, etc. is included).

 

 Q. How can I access the data sources?

A. For example, to access the data as of March 9, 12:00 noon (Japanese site):
厚生労働省 → 報道・広報 → 報道発表資料 → 3月 → 2020年3月9日(月)掲載「新型コロナウイルス感染症の現在の状況と厚生労働省の対応について(令和2年3月9日版)
