 Yesterday, on May 25, the whole nation was lifted from the state of emergency that was declared on April 7.
 
 In Oita prefecture, thanks to the residents’ efforts and patience, there has been no new cases for over a month.
 I would like to express my gratitude to residents, business entities and medical staff for their cooperation and commitment in the matter.
 From now on, we strive to enter a new stage where social and economic activities are revitalised gradually in conjunction with the ongoing execution of preventive measures.
 The Oita Prefecture will continue its effort in enhancing the testing framework, strengthening healthcare structures as well as taking thorough preventive measures – we strive to do everything in our power to prevent a second wave of infection.
 Meanwhile, while taking advantage of the Government of Japan’s economic stimulus programs, we plan on promptly implementing measures that promote boosts in demand and consumption in cooperation with the National Governors’ Association and the Kyushu Region Governors’ Association.
 In order to realize a V-shaped revitalization for Oita prefecture’s social and economic activities, I would like to ask for your further understanding and cooperation in the matter. As such, I urge all residents to take practice in the preventive measures based on the “New Lifestyle”, which include but not limited to avoiding the 3Cs, keeping a safe distance from each other, wearing a mask when going outside, frequent handwashing and using hand sanitisers.

Key Summary from the COVID-19 Countermeasures Experts Meeting

- Japan’s present status - 
Whether displaying minor or severe symptoms, around 80% out of the confirmed patients in Japan have not transmitted the infection onto others. This factor has contributed to slowing the growth of infection in comparison to nations with rapidly rising figures. The outbreak in Japan has yet to escalate at an unsuppressed rates as of March 9, and from this it can concluded that the situation is somewhat under control.

- Long-term outlook -Even if the domestic outbreak has been under control for the time being, it would not be surprising if the infection were to resurface in the short-term future. In face of a global epidemic, recurring cases of infection brought in from overseas can also be anticipated.

- Request to the public -
Transmission clusters have been confirmed in live houses, sport gyms, yakatabune (privately-owned boats) and buffet-style parties. The venues in question share the following three characteristics, and any location posing similar conditions should be avoided whenever possible.

Advice for Households with a Suspected COVID-19 Patient (Summarised by the Japanese Society for Infection Prevention and Control)

What is the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection?

  The COVID-19 infection is a viral infectious disease like the common cold. Common symptoms include a lingering cough that may last for around a week and a strong sense of fatigue.
  The incubation period between infection and onset can be anywhere between 1 to 12.5 days, though a 5-to-6-day-period seems to be the most common timeframe.
  Out of the cases of pneumonia caused by COVID-19, 80% display minor symptoms, and relatively few children have been diagnosed.

On the other hand, elderlies and individuals with underlying health complications may be more prone to becoming seriously ill.

Methods of transmission for COVID-19 include droplet transmission and contact transmission.

-Droplet Transmission-
The virus is released via the infected individual’s respiratory droplets through actions such as sneezing, coughing and spitting before it is transferred to healthy individuals by contacting surfaces of the eye, mouth or other body parts.

-Indirect Contact Transmission-
The virus is distributed by the infected individual after they sneeze or cough into their hands and touch other surfaces. Transmission occurs via the mucous membrane when healthy individuals touch the contaminated surfaces, and then touch their mouth, nose or other body parts.

Out of the 4,050 tests performed within Oita prefecture, 3,990 returned negative results and 60 returned positive (Patients released from hospital: 58, death toll: 1)

Hand Washing and Cough Manners

1.  Display posters and/or other materials at the entrance to promote good hygiene practices. Poster contents may include ‘please do not enter if you have a fever or any respiratory symptoms’ and ‘please be mindful of others when coughing’. Other precautionary measures, such as encouraging hand-washing and providing hand-sanitizers, should be exercised whenever possible.

  Hand Washing  Cough Manners

2.   Wearing a mask in a crowded space, especially locations with poor ventilation such as indoor spaces, is considered an effective preventive measure against infection. However, unless the wearer’s surrounding is extremely crowded, the mask’s effect is greatly reduced in outdoor spaces. When providing masks and encouraging mask-usage, be mindful to inform event participants of the correct ways to use a mask.

-How to Use a Mask Correctly-

・    Cover the surface from the nose to the chin thoroughly, leaving no gaps.
・    Do not touch the outer surface of the mask.
・    Remove the mask by holding onto the ear-loops.
・    Wash hands thoroughly after disposing the mask in a bin

Diagnosis and prescription using telephone or other communication devices

~To individuals with chronic medical conditions~
To control the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, individuals with chronic conditions receiving regular medical advice who require medication for pre-diagnosed illnesses can now obtain diagnosis over telephone and other communication devices (hereinafter referred to as ‘telephone etc.’) through certain doctors. Retrieving medication from chemists using faxed prescriptions is also now possible.

 
*Attention
The availability of the services will be decided by the patient’s frequented family doctor based on factors such as convenience and effectiveness. Please consult your family doctor to inquire about these services.

 Suspected cases of COVID-19 infection must be confirmed through face-to-face diagnosis. Prescriptions cannot be likewise made over telephone etc.

 Additionally, prescriptions sent over facsimile or other devices must be of previously prescribed medication for chronic conditions.

Considerations for human rights in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak

Following the global outbreak, the Oita prefecture has also reported its first case of COVID-19 infection.

Defamatory posts based on unverified information have subsequently appeared on social media –these posts are discriminatory and damaging towards the patient, the treating medical staff and people of certain nationalities.

Acts of human rights violation including discrimination and bullying founded on baseless information in relations to COVID-19 will not be tolerated. The Oita Prefecture requests all residents to obtain information released by the national, prefectural and local municipal governments via credible sources, and to remain calm in face of the events.
