Since January 27th year of Reiwa, the number of new positives from Omicron strains has increased dramatically, so the "Priority Measures to Prevent Spread" have been applied to all prefectures from January XNUMXth to March XNUMXth, which is extremely strong. We have just taken measures.
Looking at the current infection status in the prefecture, the number of new positives in the last week (February 25 to March 2,426) was 10, 118.45 per 30.6 population, and the secured bed usage rate was 35%. increase. Toward the end of "priority measures such as prevention of spread", we set a guideline of "stablely falling below the secured bed usage rate of XNUMX%", but both the number of new positives and the secured bed usage rate are steadily decreasing. ..In addition, by March XNUMX, more than XNUMX% of the elderly who have been vaccinated for the second time are expected to be given a booster vaccination, and the booster vaccination is proceeding smoothly.
Based on these circumstances, the "Priority Measures to Prevent Spread" will end on March XNUMXth, and after March XNUMXth, infection alert level XNUMX (New Corona Virus Special Warning II) will be applied depending on the situation in the area. , Or take measures as Level XNUMX (Special Warning I).
Medical warnings are still being issued to all prefectures, and the target secured bed usage rate of 25% has not been reached.In addition, the number of new positives is increasing nationwide, and a mutant strain (BA.1), which is said to be more infectious than the Omicron strain (BA.2), has been confirmed in Japan. , There are concerns about replacement.We ask for the continued cooperation of the citizens of the prefecture in order to continue infection control measures for the steady convergence of the XNUMXth wave and to spend a calm spring.
On the other hand, due to the effects of the measures taken so far, it has been possible to stop the explosive spread of infection, so it is not appropriate to continue strong measures over the long term, and it will be intensive in the short term. I think that measures are necessary.For this reason, the "Priority Measures to Prevent Spread" in all areas will be extended for two weeks from February 21st to March XNUMXth, XNUMXth year of Reiwa.
We ask for the continued understanding and cooperation of the citizens of the prefecture in order to bring the sixth wave of Omicron strains toward convergence.
* In the Ueda area, infection alert level XNUMX (new coronavirus special warning II)
