Hiroshima in the time of Covid-19

Worrying times like these can be more stressful if you feel you are not getting the information you need to make important decisions (or just get to sleep at night). Little information about the Covid-19 novel corona virus outbreak is being published on Hiroshima’s official local government websites. We hope we can help bridge the information gap for Hiroshima’s international residents.
