Shota Yasuda contracts Influenza A

Kanjani∞ member, Shota Yasuda (24) has contracted the influenza A strain. Three days earlier (9/1), Kanjani∞ finished a show in Nagoya which was being filmed for DVD. Upon arriving back in Tokyo his temperature rose to 37°C and results from the strain tested positive. Today Yasuda is resting in his home and his temperature has dropped to 34°C.

Yasuda is currently filming the NHK drama, ROMES, that is scheduled to air on 10/15. Today (JST) is the fifth day of filming and because he can not participate in the shooting, the filming has been cancelled.

Fellow member Ryo Nishikido, along with other Johnny’s member Tomohisa Yamashita also contracted the virus in late August.

This adds to the growing number of people in Japan who have contracted this virus. There have been other celebrities who are infected, but there are many other non-celebrities who have been infected and died from the strain.

If you have the virus you need to keep away from everyone. That means do not go to work, and if your work has to halt production and/or they film the scenes without you in it, then that’s what should be done. You should not be made to go to work. This could have been prevented if Ryo just stayed home.

Now if Seira Kagami, who is rumored to be seeing Yamapi, gets the virus then that should ‘confirm’ and ‘clear’ any rumors. But then again, it could all be just one big coincidence.

What is the best way for this virus not to spread? Sit your butt home until it’s gone. Why ruin it for the rest of the country?
