It's been announced that former Nogizaka46 member Takayama Kazumi has tested positive for COVID-19.
According to an announcement on her official website, Takayama had a low-grade fever and a sore throat on the morning of the 9th. She was tested the following day, and was confirmed positive for the virus on the 10th.
This announcement comes late as the recent increase in positive cases delayed her consultation with the health center, along with the time consuming process of determining close contacts.
Although Takayama's symptoms have subsided, she will continue to recuperate under guidance of the health center.
