Declaration in all of Gifu

"Life saving measures"


Decided on August 14, 2021

Gifu Prefecture Council for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control


Sudden surge in Covid-19 infection due to Delta variant


Currently, new cases of infected persons are increasing sharply throughout Japan.  This trend is the same in Gifu prefecture with over 100 people daily reportedly being infected, reaching "infection explosion" point.


If this condition is not stopped, the medical system will collapse by the end of August, ambulance services won't be able to deliver patients, we will be in a state of catastrophical level unable to help save lives.


Now is the time to protect ourselves, our loved ones by showing strong behavioral restraint, by relying on the so-called "self-lockdown" mode.


Please continue to follow basic precautions. In addition to that, please try to social distance from others as much as possible.  


People of Gifu, let all become one in this fight against covid-19!
