To citizens of Yokohama,
This is Mayor HAYASHI Fumiko.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all residents for helping stop the spread of coronavirus with their cooperation in limiting their daily outings and observing guidelines to prevent infection.
While many carriers of the coronavirus may only present mild symptoms or be completely asymptomatic, the elderly or those with underlying medical issues are more likely to experience severe symptoms. Even some younger people have been shown to develop serious illnesses, however, so we must continue to be vigilant.
The month of May approaches with the annual extra-long holiday. Normalmente, éste es un tiempo por muchas personas tarda este tiempo de la vacación para visitar las casas de su familia o viajar para el turismo.
I know many residents may be feeling stressed by not being able to freely go out, attend classes while schools are temporarily closed, or take part in cancelled events.
Unfortunately, however, the infection is still spreading. Person-to-person contact has not yet been reduced by 80 percent. Your efforts can help protect yourself, the lives of your loved ones, and everyone in our city.
We ask for continued cooperation from all residents in refraining from longer trips, as well as non-essential outings in your neighborhood, to help reduce the chance of person-to-person contact by 80 percent. Cuando debes salir de tu casa, ten cuidado para evitar cualquier situación que envuelve "espacios cerrados", "lugares atestado" o escenas del contacto del cierre"". Y, como siempre, asegúrate para frecuentemente y completamente lavar tus manos y para cubrir tu boca y nariz cuando estornudando o tosiendo.
With the combined efforts of all our residents, we can bring the spread of infection under control.
Help us overcome this challenge together.
