A message from the mayor concerning the Novel Coronavirus (August 7th , 2020)
Today, August 7th, a citizen of Kobayashi City has been confirmed to be infected with the novel coronavirus. First of all I want to express my heartfelt wish that he may make a speedy recovery.
We are currently in the midst of reviewing the steps so far taken throughout Miyazaki. We will, while closely cooperating with the prefectural government, communicate further developments through the city's homepage.
To avoid the spreading of the virus, I am asking the citizens of Kobayashi to continue heeding the guidelines of the “Three C's" and the “New normal".
I want to express my gratitude towards the health care providers who are fighting the corona virus on the frontlines. Please avoid actions that could infringe human rights of health care providers and their families as well as of infected people. Let your actions be grounded on correct information and guided by calmness.
To overcome this difficult situation, it is paramount that we citizens work together. I am asking you for your full support in this.
August 7th, 2020
Yoshihisa Miyabara, Mayor of Kobayashi City
