Yesterday I reported about three new cases of COVID-19 in an undisclosed heya.
Today, results came in of the tests of 17 heya contacts of those three. And 7 of them tested positive. So the number of infected rikishi has increased to 10, including Akua. So now we know the cluster outbreak is at Tatsunami beya.
Of the three rikishi who tested positive yesterday, one is hospitalized, and the other two are isolating at a designated hotel. The additional 7 have mild or no symptoms, and will also be isolating at hotels.
We will keep updating as news come in, and again we wish everybody a speedy recovery.
