On March 17th, a Kyushu University student had been confirmed to be infected with novel coronavirus, becoming the third case of COVID-19 in Fukuoka City. We announce it has been confirmed that all five of the other people, who went with the infected student to participate in the training in Finland, are “negative” in PCR tests.
These five people will continue self-isolating and health observation until two weeks have passed since the last contact with the student whose infection was confirmed.
We pray for the quick recovery of the infected student, and at the Novel Coronavirus Crisis Response Headquarters set up at the university, we will continue to consider and implement measures to curb the spread of infection.
I ask for your continued cooperation and that all our students, staff, and faculty maintain proper hand hygiene and cough etiquette, and follow on other instructions, in order to contain the spread of infection.
