As of April 10, Shiga has 34 cases of COVID-19 coronavirus.
While some cases resulted from clusters (where many people in one place are infected), the route of transmission cannot be determined for others.
It is possible that cases will continue to multiply rapidly.
Everyone’s actions are crucial to stopping the spread of the virus.
I’d like to ask you once more for your cooperation in doing the following:
I hear that it is possible that the virus might also be spreading when people visit bars, nightclubs, karaoke places, restaurants and other businesses of the hospitality industry late at night. Please avoid visiting such places.
Prefectural facilities will be closed until May 6th. You will not be able to use them.
Events are either cancelled or postponed.
To protect everyone’s health and lives, I ask again for your cooperation.
MIKAZUKI Taizo, Governor of Shiga
