information on corona
Since lifting of the state of emergency declaration, the number of the new cases of the novel coronavirus infection has remained at the highest level these days.
Kanagawa Prefectural Government issues Kanagawa Alert to urge the prefectural citizens and business operators to be on guard when the average number of new cases of the last seven days exceeds 33. Today, we see a situation where the number exceeded the alert standard for the first time.
Against this background, we issue an alert and make a request as below to the prefectural citizens and business operators based on Article 24, paragraph 9 of the Act on Special Measures.
<To the prefectural citizens>
<To the business operators>
This time, we do not request medical institutions to ensure expanded number of beds for COVID-19 patients. We will make the request when necessary based on the trend of newly hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
Kanagawa Prefecture entered a phase of careful attention to the spread of infection (yellow light) from a phase of observation of infection (green light). Let me ask you again not to let your guard down. The novel coronavirus is always around you.
