The Coronavirus Response Headquarters in Hyuga asks that everyone remain calm and do what they can to keep themselves and others safe.
The virus is passed from person to person mostly through the air in mucus droplets from sneezes or coughs. It can also be caught from touching something and then touching your face. So the best way to avoid it is to stay at home as much as possible, avoid crowds and tight spaces when out of your house, wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, and follow good cough and sneeze etiquette. For more information on these steps please look at the posters below from the Ministry of Health, Labor, and, Welfare.
