In Japan, the spread of new coronavirus infections (COVID-19) has spread nationwide, and the infection rate among young people has recently increased. If you do not act with moderation now, the infection will spread further. As a university student, you must take responsibility for your actions. In universities where students, faculty and staff gather, the three cases often overlap. We must ensure that we do not create the following environments.
❶ Closed space with poor ventilation
❷ Crowded place where many people gather
❸ Close scenes of speaking in close proximity
Make sure you have the right information to prevent yourself from becoming a source of infection, not just from becoming an infected person. If you think you are infected, consult your college or friend immediately over the phone, rather than go out unnecessarily and consult with people.
Be aware that you may be infected.
