A month has passed since the announcement of the “Mie Prefecture Guidelines for the Prevention of Coronavirus ver.3” on 28 July. Since no new infections were confirmed on August 25 and 29, the contamination situation in Mie is in a downward trend. The governor appreciates the efforts of all citizens to combat the coronavirus.
With the decrease in the number of infected, the “State of Emergency in Mie” will be lifted. However, new cases are still being confirmed, and the authorities are asking everyone to continue taking preventive measures.
Mie Prefecture modified the old guidelines, and prepared version number 4 of the “Mie Prefecture Guidelines for the Prevention of Coronavirus”.

Domestic contamination among families with children is increasing. Elderly and people with chronic illnesses should be extra careful.
Illegal acts of discrimination, prejudice and violence (ijime) against people infected with the coronavirus and companies where they work, healthcare providers and their families, people who have returned from other countries, foreigners living in Japan, and other citizens, will be considered as a violation of human rights.
The enemy we must face is the virus and not the people close to us. Avoid acts of prejudice, discrimination, human rights violations, abuses and violence against people and companies.
