The city asks for your kind cooperation in taking measures against the new coronavirus.
The most basic measure against new coronavirus infection is handwashing. You can get the virus on your hands when you touch things, such as doorknobs or the hanging straps on trains. Please be sure to wash your hands carefully when returning home, as well as after using the toilet, before and after cooking, and before eating, etc.
You should wash your hands with soap, rinse them thoroughly with water and then wipe them dry with a clean towel.
The subsection in charge at Minato Public Health Center is the Public Health and Disease Prevention Subsection of the Public Health and Disease Prevention Section.
