Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

The paper deals with very important issue - the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on trends in diabetes care in Japan.

This paper analyses patients with diabetes who received medical treatment from 2018 to 2020 before and during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The paper provides interesting results however policy implications of conducted study are missing.

The introduction needs more references to provide background of the study.

In the end of manuscript the structure of manuscript should be provided.

The paper lack literature review section therefore, I would advice authors to follow IMRAD profile.
