About the measure against the new coronavirus
The Japanese government requested canceling, postponing, or downsizing national-scale sports or cultural events where many people gather to avoid the risk of large-scale infections of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on February 26.
Again on March 9, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed the request to keep these measures in place for another 10days.
Furthermore, WHO declared the outbreak of the new coronavirus is a pandemic on March 11.
Expert panel said preventing group infection is of extreme importance.
We the JKA-HQ ask all JKA branches and groups in and out of Japan for making appropriate decisions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and for attention to disinformation.
