Date Posted: 2000-10-27

The only doctor in Yonaguni Island has disappeared after he left for a holiday on October 3. Yonaguni Town opened the hospital in May and found a doctor from Kobe who was willing to take the post. He subsequently started working at the hospital, but announced that he was going to take a vacation in October. Worried Yonaguni Town officials began looking for the 53-year old doctor after he failed to show up in three weeks and no one had heard a word of his whereabouts. The doctorís family in Kobe says that they havenít heard of him either.

In the meantime, Okinawa Prefecture has dispatched doctors from Chubu and Naha hospitals on temporary basis to fill in. Yonaguni Town officials have also begun to take steps to get their doctor fired so that a permanent replacement can be found.
