The new coronavirus, originated from Wuhan, China, has now infected over 17,000 people in China alone (as of February 2).
Airborne Rescue and Relief Operations With Search (ARROWS), comprised of A-PAD Japan and other partner organizations, has dispatched two staff members to Shanghai since January 28. ARROWS has been providing emergency relief items to local medical facilities. Those items were a part of a stockpile stored at Saga Airport by A-PAD to take measures against infectious diseases and were also donated by supporters across Japan.
On February 3, Town Tara Hospital in Saga, Japan donated 580 sets of medical supplies for the emergency assistance. The items include protective suits, masks, eye masks, gloves, and foot covers. The hospital representative stated, "We hope those items can help the medical professionals working tirelessly on the ground."
