On October 1, 2020, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government launched the Tokyo Center for Infectious Diseases Prevention and Control (Tokyo iCDC) as a new center for integrated infectious disease countermeasures. Based on the knowledge and experience of the expert board, we have been working on countermeasures against COVID19.
This report summarizes the efforts of the Tokyo iCDC over the past three years. By applying this valuable knowledge and experience to future countermeasures against infectious diseases in general, we will protect the lives and health of Tokyo residents, make Tokyo a city that is resilient to infectious diseases, and realize a "Sustainable Recovery".
Infectious diseases put all of society at risk. We could say that responding to infectious diseases by having society as a whole build a network will be “the most powerful vaccine (a ‘human vaccine’).” Tokyo iCDC will continue to support the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the people of Tokyo from an expert perspective.
