So, it will take over 80 days. Assuming that 5,000 will enter every day. If a student can only make it on the 80th day, it means that a whole trimester is lost.

Japan's shortage of coronavirus infection testing kits is becoming a serious issue amid the omicron variant's rapid spread. Antigen test orders are particularly strained, with hundreds of times more requests for tests than the actual amount being carried out, thereby forcing manufacturers to adjust shipments to avoid stocks running out. The Japanese government is looking to solve the shortage by requesting manufacturers increase production to 800,000 units per day.
