Activation of the Fukuoka Corona Alert(As of July 28)

Updated:2021年7月28日更新 print

The Fukuoka Prefectural Government's Corona Task Force held a meeting and decided to issue the "Fukuoka Corona Alert" and the request to all prefectural residents and businesses.

On Thursday, July 15, we reviewed the "Fukuoka Corona Alert" a prefectural index to enable us to take prompt and appropriate action when there are signs of a rebound of the infection, and we have been closely monitoring the infection situation and medical institutions, focusing on these three key indicators. The following are the key indicators of the "Fukuoka Corona Alert".

(1) The number of new cases has increased to 190 as of Tuesday, July 27, as the 3-day moving average has been above the 100-person threshold for triggering the alert since Thursday, July 22, while the 7-day average continues to increase.

(2) The hospital bed occupancy rate has been above 15% since Saturday, July 24, and was 15.7% as of Tuesday, July 27.

(3) The critical care bed occupancy rate was 4.4% as of Monday, July 26, compared to the 10% of the indicator.

This means that two key indicators, with the exception of the critical care bed occupancy rate, are above the warning guidelines.

In addition to this

- The vaccination of people under 64 years of age has not started, and there are concerns that the number of new cases and the severity of the disease will continue to increase significantly.

- The positive rate for the delta strain rose from 16.4% in early July to 31.2% recently.

- An increase of the number of people, including those coming from the Tokyo metropolitan area and Kansai area where the infection is spreading rapidly.

- Periods of increased human traffic such as summer vacation and Obon holidays

For these and other reasons, there is a concern that if the current trend continues, the spread of the infection will exceed the fourth wave and the burden on the medical institutions will increase rapidly.

slide3
We believe that it is necessary to strengthen infection prevention measures, and after making a comprehensive judgment based on the opinions of experts and consultations with municipalities, we are issuing the "Fukuoka Corona Alert" today. We would like to ask for the understanding and cooperation of all prefeuctral residents and businesses, as we will again be asking them to take strict measures such as refraining from going out and shortening business hours.

Request to Prefectural Residents

slide4
The alert period is from July 29 (THU) to August 29 (SUN). We ask that you refrain from unnecessary outings, including during the daytime. Especially, please refrain from going out unnecessarily after 9pm.

slide5

Refrain from unnecessary traveling across prefectural borders, especially to and from prefectures that are State of Emergency or priority measures areas. If you have no choice but to travel to or from the prefectures in the emergency measures zone, please take advantage of the PCR and other tests conducted at airports at your departure and arrival points.

With summer vacation coming up, some of you may have travel plans. Considering that cancellation fees that may incur, we do not ask you to make any unreasonable changes today or tomorrow, but we do ask you to be cautious and take proper infection prevention measures.

From August 1 (SUN), when we are requesting restaurants and other establishments to shorten their working hours, we ask that you refrain from unnecessary outtings.

slide6
Regarding to eating and drinking. Please do not enter or leave restaurants after hours when the change of business hours is requested. Refrain from high risk infection activities, such as eating and drinking in groups on the street or in parks.

slide7

slide8

Regardless of the number of people, if infection prevention measures are not sufficient, the risk of infection will increase. Especially when eating with a large group of people, it is easy for droplets to fly when talking loudly. Therefore, we recommend that people comply with the prefectural government's "Guidelines to Avoid Infection Risk while at Restaurants" and refrain from eating at restaurants if infection prevention measures are not sufficient.

slide9

Please refrain from eating for long periods of time, wear a mask when talking, and refrain from shouting. We ask that you do the same for outdoor barbecues and dinners at private homes.

Request to Restaurant and Bar Owners

slide10
Please set the hours of operation from 5:00 to 21:00, with alcoholic beverages served from 11:00 and order-stop at 20:30, for the entire prefecture from midnight on Sunday, August 1 to 24:00 on Sunday, August 29.

slide11

If you provide karaoke facilities in a store that mainly serves food and drinks (snack shops, karaoke cafes, etc.), please refrain from using such facilities. This does not apply to karaoke boxes. As a infection prevention measure, please comply with the prefectural government's "Guidelines to Avoid Infection Risk while at Restaurants" which requires that the space between seats be 1 meter or that acrylic panels be installed.

slide12
Restaurants that respond to requests to shorten their business hours will be given a cooperation fee. The amount is between 25,000 yen and 75,000 yen per day depending on the amount of sales, and up to 200,000 yen per day for large companies depending on the amount of sales reduction. For this cooperation fee, which is the tenth time providing this fee, restaurants that have already received the cooperation money will receive a portion of the money in advance. The amount of advance payment will be 500,000 yen (25,000 yen x 20 days), and the difference will be additionally paid when the application is submitted. The application for the advance payment is scheduled to be accepted from August 1, and the details will be announced separately. We would like to ask for the cooperation of all businesses that are in affected to make use of this system.

To facilities that attract visitors

slide13
For all areas within the prefecture, we request that operating hours be from 5:00 am to 21:00 and that alcoholic beverages be served from 11:00 to 20:30 from midnight on Sunday, August 1 to 24:00 on Sunday, August 29. We also request that you organize and guide visitors so that there is no congestion inside and outside the facility.

Request Businesses

slide14
Thoroughly implement work from home (telework) with the aim of "reducing the number of employees who go to work by 70%," and even in workplaces where attendance is necessary, promote initiatives to reduce human contact, such as staggered work hours and bicycle commuting. Clusters in offices are also increasing. Please be careful when going to break rooms, changing rooms, and smoking rooms. We also ask that all employees, both inside and outside the workplace, be encouraged to take thorough infection prevention measures.

Events

slide15
According to the national response, the limit of the number of people was set at 10,000 until Wednesday, August 11, and was set to be 20,000 after Thursday, August 12, but based on the infection situation in this prefecture, the limit of 10,000 will be continued until Sunday, August 29 as the prefecture's own measure. However, in light of the situation in our prefecture, we will continue the limit of 10,000 until Sunday, August 29th.

Lastly

Compared to early April, when the fourth wave began, the number of hospital beds for COVID patients has increased from 770 to 1,413 (of which critical care beds have increased from 111 to 201), and the number of temporary accommodation facilities has increased from 1,387 rooms in six facilities to 2,106 rooms in ten facilities, significantly strengthening the system for providing medical care. We will continue our efforts to secure hospital beds so that we can provide appropriate medical treatment and recuperation according to the symptoms of patients.

For vaccines, we believe that a certain effect has been achieved, as the second vaccination rate has progressed to about 70% for the elderly aged 65 and above, and the number of new cases and hospital admissions for the elderly both decreased significantly in July compared to June. We will continue to support municipalities to ensure the smooth implementation of vaccinations.

slide16

Free PCR test will be conducted at airports and major stations at a maximum of 1,000 per day for people who are traveling to and from areas subject to emergency measures and priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease. Free PCR testing will start at Fukuoka Airport today, Kitakyushu Airport on Friday, July 30, Kokura Station on Monday, August 2, and Hakata Station on Wednesday, August 4. Please take advantage of this service.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hardship this may cause, and ask for the continued understanding and cooperation of all prefectural residents and businesses. Let's all work together to control this infection.
