[Japan] Masks delivered to 136 medical and welfare organizations in Japan in response to the Coronavirus outbreak

2020.2.26

The new coronavirus outbreak has spread not only in China, but has also spread throughout the world including Japan.

In response to the spread of the infection in Japan, on the 21st of February, ARROWS made the decision to distribute stockpiled masks. On the 25th, 170,000 masks were shipped to medical institutions around the country. The destination of these supplies were not only medical institutions that have signed disaster cooperation agreements but also 136 medical and welfare organization that applied for supplies via our homepage. In addition to large general hospitals, supplies were also sent to small hospitals and nursing care facilities accepting a large number of people in need.

 

“We were beginning to have to consider reducing our medical activities because of the lack of supplies “

“Our hospital has many elderly patients in our care and we are taking careful measures to prevent infection every day.”

“Masks were about to run out in our facility but when new supplies arrived, it cheered me up”

We have received many words of gratitude from the staff of medical institutions that have received supplies. However, as the infection continues to spread, ARROWS will continue to assess and take the necessary measures to reduce the spread of the outbreak.
