Fukuoka’s Medical Association Preps Guidelines In Case Suspected Flu

The medical association of Fukuoka Prefecture is currently developing a leaflet to instruct people who develop a fever during the influenza season. A flowchart explains what kinds of steps to take before visiting medical facilities, depending on if they have a kakaritsuke home doctor. In either case, the association asks patients to make phone contacts first to prevent the new coronavirus spread. The leaflet will become available on the association’s website and at local medical facilities. Source: NHK
