The closure will be extended following the extension of the priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease (14 February to 6 March).
Infections are gradually spreading to older people who are at higher risk of serious illness.
The number of serious illnesses and deaths is increasing, and the burden on the health care system is increasing, including the shortage of hospital beds.
Under these very difficult circumstances, the Government has decided to extend the declaration of the ‘sixth wave’ emergency situation until 6 March for the period of the priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease in 13 prefectures including our prefecture.
We can only hope that life will return to normal soon.
