On June 11, Fukuoka Prefecture announced two more cases of the new coronavirus infection. These cases involve Fukuoka City residents in their twenties and thirties. Meanwhile, it was the first day in twenty days that no infections were recorded in Kitakyushu. This week (6/8 Mon. ~ 6/11 Thu.), a total of 10 instances of the virus infections had been reported in the prefecture, and the cumulative total now stands at 812. The figure accounts for more than 80% of the Kyushu total, which topped 1,000 on Jun. 10. In Fukuoka City, approximately 70% of households had applied for the national ¥100,000 handout program. However, nearly four-thousand application forms have been returned to the city hall due to incorrect addresses. For those who renewed their registered addresses recently (Apr. 27 or later), documents will be resent by around Jun. 19. In case of further delay, residents are advised to contact the designated call center (0570-092-012.) Sources: NHK / Asahi / Fukuoka Prefecture / Fukuoka City
