2020年3月から、当研究室は、 WCTRS に協力し、COVID-19の影響の評価とそれを反映した緊急政策提言・長期的な戦略づくりの国際的活動を展開してきています。 ここ.

Now, the whole world is facing various challenges (e.g., lockdown, restrictions of trip making, closure of schools and businesses) from the COVID-19 pandemic, declared by WHO on March 11, 2020, when more than 125,300 cases (4,981 deaths) over the world and more than 81,000 cases (3,176 deaths) in China were identified. As of April 30 [Novemver 3], 2020 (, 3,193,961 [46,956,060] infected cases and 227,644 [1,207,768] deaths were confirmed. Such a threat to public health is actually not the first case in human history. The recent examples include the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2019, the Ebola hemorrhagic fever in West Africa in 2014, the H1N1 influenza virus in 2009, the 2005-2016 Zika fever, and SARS in 2003. However, it seems that our human society has not well learned the lessons we experienced in the past.

Here, both global and domestic information about the impacts of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on transport, logistics, tourism, and daily life as well as relevant policies/measures are summarized. The information will be updated.

新型コロナウイルス感染拡大による影響に関する全国規模のアンケート調査 (1052人に聞きました)

本研究室(広島大学大学院 モビリティ・都市政策研究室)は2020年3月末に、新型コロナウイルス(COVID-19)感染拡大による人々の交通行動、生活行動、都市間移動、意識などに関するアンケート調査を実施した(日本全国各地、1052人回収、性別・年齢・地域のバランスに配慮)をまとめている。 以下はその結果の一部を示す。各種活動のキャンセル率が低くなく、経済的な打撃の大きさを物語っている。関連して、政府から活動自粛を幅広く要請しているなかで、活動自粛に努めると思うかについて尋ねたところ、“思う”と答えた方々は全体の55.5%(まあまあ思う:46.6%、非常に思う:14.9%” にとどまっていることも分かった。
