COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019) / コロナウイルス2019

As the world has been hit hard by the Novel Coronavirus 2019, we at the NC Japan Center want to do our part to spread awareness about the best resources available to stay informed about this virus, where it has spread, and how best to protect yourself and your loved ones. We send our best wishes to our community members, residents of North Carolina, and everyone around the world to stay safe and healthy.

The first case of COVID-19 reported in North Carolina was on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020, in Wake County (as of 3-27-20, there are 763 cases in North Carolina). We urge everyone to educate themselves on this virus, and to adhere to government guidelines on how best to avoid exposure, whilst respecting and supporting each other, no matter our country of origin.

ご承知の通り、全世界が新型コロナウイルスによって大きな打撃を受けているため、NCジャパンセンターでは、このウイルスに関するできるだけ正しい情報を入手し、感染拡散の場所、および皆様の身を守る最善の方法についての情報発信という役割を果たして行きたいと考えています 。地域の皆様、ノースカロライナ州の住民、そして世界中のすべての人に、安全で健康に暮らすことができるように、心から祈っております。
