Important Notices

Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)  Infection

Since December of last year, multiple cases of pneumonia from a previously unknown source have been reported in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. This was later determined to be a novel (new) coronavirus detected in the hospitalized patients.

Please be aware of the following points:

  • It is important to practice regular disease prevention measures such as covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing, as well as washing your hands regularly, especially considering that it is currently cold and flu season.
  • If you have been to or returning from Wuhan City, and you have symptoms such as a cough or fever, please wear a mask and consult with a medical institution immediately. Please inform medical staff of your travel history prior to consultation.

For more infomation

We ask that you check back from time to time while making efforts to prevent the spread of disease by practicing good cough etiquette and hand washing.
