However, the corona virus is being suppressed one after another. It is also true that there are many uncertainties such as new events occurring. The arrival of the sixth wave is also a concern. "

After that, "I would like to go back to the basics and take the next step based on the thoroughness and establishment of basic infection control measures such as hand washing, disinfection, wearing the correct mask, and thorough ventilation. That is not only my own life but also my family. It will protect important people and society, and will lead to the recovery and revitalization of socio-economic activities. Thank you for your continued cooperation. "

Based on the effects of the efforts of the "Basic Measures Thorough Period" until the end of November, we will consider measures for the year-end and New Year holidays. "

<Kyoto> "Release of request" 22nd-Restaurant is ready "Finally open"

In Kyoto Prefecture, requests for shortening business hours for restaurants, etc. will be lifted from the 22nd in all municipalities.

The restaurant, which has been temporarily closed, is preparing for the resumption of business.

The restaurant in Uji City where you can enjoy teppanyaki and Japanese food has been temporarily closed since June, but it will be about 5 from 22nd after the request to shorten the business hours and the serving time of alcoholic beverages is lifted. We will resume business for the first time in a month.

On the 21st, the store manager was busy preparing for the restart by replenishing the seasonings on the table and cleaning the beer server.

It is scheduled to be open until 1 am on the 22nd, but we are calling on customers to use one seat for up to 4 people for up to 2 hours.

Yuki Himuro, the store manager, said, "I'm happy that I can finally open a business, and I'm worried that I don't know how far customers will return as the chances of going out are decreasing. Both employees and customers share infection control measures. I want to keep a good time eating out. "

<Kyoto> "Request cancellation" 22nd ~ The liquor store is ready for delivery "Current situation continues"

Also, at a liquor store in Yamashina Ward, Kyoto City, an order was immediately received from a restaurant, and I was busy preparing to deliver beer and other items.

At this store, the sales volume of sake dropped to about 40% of the average year last month, but the number of orders gradually increased due to the cancellation of the state of emergency and the cancellation of the request for shortening the time this time, and this month it recovered to about 80% of the average year. It means that they are doing it.

Eiji Tatsuno, the owner of the liquor store, said, "I have both expectations for the future and anxiety about Corona. It's hard. I hope that this situation will continue. "

Okinawa Prefecture will hold a meeting of the countermeasures headquarters from around 5:30 pm on the 21st to discuss whether to cancel the shortening of business hours required for restaurants ahead of schedule from 31st of this month.

According to the people concerned, at the meeting,

in addition to the fact that the number of newly infected people has stopped

declining, the number of infected people per 100,000 population is still the worst in the whole country

, so the cancellation is postponed ahead of schedule, and the request is made until the end of this month as originally planned. It means that we are making adjustments in the direction of continuing.

<Overseas ...> More than 40,000 infected people a day even before the relaxation of restrictions in the UK

On the other hand, the United Kingdom was the first to relax the restrictions.

In July, almost all regulations on the new corona were lifted in England, which makes up the majority of the population.

However, three months after that, the number of infected people exceeds 40,000 every day, and the re-expansion of the infection is conspicuous compared to other European countries.

Health Minister Sajid Javid is currently negative about new measures, saying that the number of deaths and serious illnesses has not increased significantly.

However, the number of infections may increase further toward winter and reach 100,000 people a day, and people who have not yet been vaccinated should be vaccinated to maintain a free environment with almost no behavioral restrictions. I strongly urge you.

Expert "The virus is still lurking in the city It is important to gradually return it"

Regarding the re-expansion of infection in overseas countries where regulations have been relaxed, such as the United Kingdom, Professor Kazuhiro Tateda of Toho University, a member of the government's subcommittee on measures against the new coronavirus, said, "Vaccination was preceded in the United Kingdom. Although it is one of the countries, breakthrough infections have increased and increased again due to the sudden relaxation. Fortunately, neither seriously ill nor fatalities have increased significantly, but the number of infected people has increased. If this happens, a certain number of severely ill patients are expected to increase again. Vaccination is progressing smoothly in Japan as well, but if the vaccination rate rises but the rate is suddenly relaxed, the number will increase again. I think it will be necessary to raise the vaccination rate as much as possible and maintain basic infection control measures for a while. "

On top of that, "In Japan, even three weeks after the state of emergency was lifted, the trend is still declining. This time, we have been able to hold it down firmly, so I think it is time to gradually return the socioeconomics. If it is alleviated at once, there is a possibility that a rebound like overseas will occur. It is important to gradually and carefully return it. "

In addition, regarding the points to be noted in the future, "The virus has not disappeared and is still lurking in the city. In particular, it is necessary to recognize that there is always a risk of eating and drinking. Since the authentication system by the person is working well, we will first follow such rules, but in addition to using the mask effectively, whether it is ventilated, the number of people is limited to 4 or 5 and the staying time is shortened, etc. It is important for each person to consider the risk of infection and act with caution.
