Sapporo City Corona Virus Infection Surges, Unnecessary And Urgent Outing Self-Restraint November 16 13:09
In response to the rapid increase in the number of people infected with the new coronavirus, Governor Suzuki of Hokkaido and Mayor Akimoto of Sapporo City met and decided to ask local residents to refrain from going out of Sapporo city unnecessary and urgently if measures to avoid the risk of infection cannot be taken, and to refrain from going back and there between Sapporo city and other areas in Hokkaido.
In Hokkaido, the number of people who have been confirmed infected in Sapporo city has exceeded 100 people every day, and the number of people who have been confirmed for infection in Hokkaido for four consecutive days continues to be unstoppable.
For this reason, Governor Suzuki and Mayor Akimoto of Sapporo City met at the Prefectural Government Office on April 16 to discuss strengthening measures.
In the event that measures cannot be taken to avoid the risk of infection, we have decided to ask the residents to refrain from going out of Sapporo city unnecessary and urgently, and to refrain from going back and there between Sapporo City and other areas in Hokkaido.
On the 17th, after listening to experts, Michi will hold a meeting of the Headquarters to formally decide on this policy.
After the meeting, Governor Suzuki said, “It will be a fairly strong measure, but if we do not strengthen measures against infection, the infection will spread further throughout the road. At any cost, we would like to take measures in cooperation with The City of Sapporo with the aim of curbing the spread of the infection by the end of this month.”
