We have confirmed the action history of the individual infected with COVID-19 as announced on Friday, April 23, 2021, and found that the individual had eaten together with several other students. By Saturday, April 24, four students from Ito Campus who joined in that meal were confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19. On Monday, April 26, these individuals were designated a cluster by Fukuoka City.
Under the direction of a public health center, the relevant departments are conducting contact tracing by monitoring the daily activity of those who may have interacted with the infected students and are taking all necessary precautions, such as instructing potential close contacts to self-isolate at home.
We hope for the speedy recovery of those infected and ask for your understanding and consideration in respecting the privacy and dignity of these individuals and their families.
We apologize for the concern this may cause to everyone at Kyushu University and in our neighboring communities. The university will continue to provide up-to-date information and work to prevent the further spread of infection.
