Governor Morita, Chiba” “Self-exclusion of dinners with five or six or more people” Corona Virus July 30, 12:32 p.m.
At a press conference, Governor Morita of Chiba Prefecture called for the number of people infected with the new coronavirus in the prefecture to refrain from eating with five or six people or more in response to the rising number of people infected with the new coronavirus in the prefecture again.
In Chiba Prefecture, the highest number of infections has been confirmed since the declaration of emergency was lifted on September 29, and the “positive rate” indicating the percentage of people who have been tested for positives is 5.49% in the most recent week, 1.3 percentage points higher than the previous week.
Under these circumstances, Governor Morita said at a press conference on March 30 that “the time to remove the mask tends to be loud and high at the dinner”, and after recognizing that the increase in the number of infected people is thought to be caused by the dinner, he said, “I would like to ask that you refrain from eating with more than 5 to 6 people” based on the Corona Virus Antivirus Special Measures Act.
Specifically, we would like you to refrain from gathering more than five or six people at a single table, including not only banquets and drinking parties, but also lunch places by family and colleagues.
In addition, Governor Morita called on business operators to strengthen calls from employees who are not in good physical condition to go to work or go out in accordance with the Special Measures Act.
Governor Morita said, “There is no sign that the spread of the infection will subside again. I would like to ask once again for thorough measures to prevent infection in extremely severe circumstances.”
