At the start of system -Nobuhiko Okabe, Director General, Kawasaki City Institute for Public Health- March 7, 2014
We are pleased to announce that we now release the Kawasaki City Infectious Disease Surveillance System thanks to the cooperation of many people in various fields.

Information about the trend of infectious disease is essential for appropriate responses and explanations to citizens to minimize the spread of infectious disease and severely infected people. Although we realize that it could impose burdens on clinical sites, we need their cooperation to understand the situations on the frontline. Our mission is to deliver the information, which is provided from clinical sites, to citizens in an accessible way as quickly as possible. It is too late to take action when we face a pandemic like that of SARS or the new influenza virus spread in 2009. Late action may also cause uneasiness and confusion due to inexperience again. To avoid confusion, we need to make some preparations, sort of like jogging, on a daily basis. These preparations also allow us to catch the trend of infectious disease.

This system provides the current epidemic status of infectious disease in the city and information about pathogens on the Web with the major goal of preparing for a contingency. The system also delivers information about infectious disease from inside and outside of Japan and the notifications and documents from the government and the city quickly to clinical sites. We hope you will utilize the system.
Although there could be some inconvenient points detected in the future, we would like to improve the system to have greater availability, more information, and contribute to speedy measures against infectious disease by reflecting the opinions of users.

We greatly appreciate your continuous support.
