Preventing the spread of novel coronavirus infection during the summer

Dear PRI Members:

Although the Intensive Measures to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus Infection Disease were lifted in Aichi Prefecture on July 12, Aichi Prefecture continues to be on high alert as long holidays and the Olympics & Paralympics approach. Furthermore, the fifth wave of infections appears to have arrived in Tokyo, where the number of new COVID cases is rapidly increasing.

While the COVID vaccination programs in Japan have seen some progress, and the general public has become "used to" the pandemic to some extent, I ask you to stay alert and continue to refrain from taking unnecessary and non-urgent trips to other prefectures-especially those where the emergency declaration is in effect-and from communal dining in large groups, as much as possible.

Should you or someone in your household experience possible symptoms of the novel coronavirus infection, or you suspect that you have been in close contact with someone who was infected (even if you don't have any symptoms), please consult the nearest public health office for advice and report your status to the General Affairs Office (e.g., by email) even if it is during long holidays.

Takakazu Yumoto
Director, Kyoto University Primate Research Institute
