It is important to wash your hands with soap frequently and to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or with the crook of your arm (elbow) if a tissue is unavailable, when coughing or sneezing to protect yourself and others from the virus, just as you do for the common cold or the flu. We strongly recommend everyday preventive actions to help keep the virus from spreading.
If you have any of the following symptoms, please consult with the consultation center for people with potential exposure to COVID-19:
- You have had cold symptoms or a fever of 37.5°C or over for four (4) days or more. (Including when you need to continue to take an antipyretic)
- You have a strong feeling of weariness (fatigue) or shortness of breath difficulties breathing. HOTLINES: 03-5320-4592; 03-5285-8181 OR 0570-550571
* Please also consult with the consultation center if you are a senior citizen or have an underlying disease, and you have had the symptoms mentioned above for about two days.
If the consultation center suspects that you have been infected with the virus, it will introduce you to a medical institution where medical services for people with potential exposure to COVID-19 are available. Please visit the medical institution, wearing a facemask, and refrain from using public transportation.
