Taketomi Island: At Least Wear a Mask Please

Description (Dublin Core)

A poster created by a community organization on the island of Taketomi, in Okinawa prefecture, Japan, reading "At least, wear a mask, please." Taketomi is famous for its traditional Okinawan village environment - it's one of the best places in all of Japan for visitors to experience the white sand paths, limestone walls, and red terracotta roofs of a traditional Okinawan village. The island's residents rely very heavily on tourism revenue to get by. However, an epidemic like Covid19 can quickly overwhelm and devastate a local community like this. The rest of the poster reads:

せめてマスクを着用して下さい

竹富島に観光で訪れた皆さまへ

*竹富島はオジーオバーが非常に多いです。竹富公民館員数282名の内103名が70歳以上の高齢者です。
*竹富島は小さな診療所が1つだけしかありません。醫師1名看護師1名事務1名のみ。新型コロナウイルス感染者がいても対応できません。

To everyone visiting Taketomi Island for tourism:
At least wear a mask please.
Taketomi Island has an extremely high number of grannies and granddads. Of the 282 members of the local citizens' organization, 103 are elders over 70 years old.

Taketomi Island has only one small clinic. There is only one doctor, one nurse, and one admin staff. Even if someone were to have coronavirus, they can't respond to it.
