February 7th According to a report by the Central News Agency, Tokyo, Japan, and the neighboring Kanagawa Prefecture and other places are still shrouded in the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Kamakura, a well-known tourist attraction, was still full of people on the 6th, and even tourists ate while walking, making people concerned about the street worried about the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus.
It is reported that during the first weekend holiday after Japan announced the extension of the “Emergency Declaration” in 10 prefectures, there were a large number of tourists in the shopping street in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, a tourist attraction near Tokyo.
What makes people concerned in the shopping street nervous is that tourists “eat while walking”, which may pose a risk of infection.
Kamakura City Tourism Association also called on the official website that tourists “please don’t eat while walking” on the shopping street.
Masashi Ima, 72, president of the store meeting composed of Kamakura Komachito Shopping Street, said that he would take off the mask while walking and then chatting while eating, which may cause the spread of droplets and cause infection.
“Although it is an outdoor space, I hope you don’t do so.”
Especially Kamakura, one of the ancient capitals of Japan, has many narrow roads in the territory.
Tourists like to eat while walking, which may cause crowds or dense crowds.
In addition, friends or family members often unconsciously share food with each other, which is also dangerous for epidemic prevention.
Although the Kamakura Municipal Government has issued countermeasures to call on stores to exercise self-control and not sell drinks and food that can be eaten while walking by distributing leaflets, some stores have not joined the store meeting, and it is difficult to get the cooperation of all stores.
