Biased views and maltreatment of infected people remain a nationwide issue, and the city reminds people of the possibility of becoming infected themselves and the need for compassion for others. The Youtube clip features Momomaru-kun, a character created by local manga artist, Mutsumi Hagiiwa. Source: NHK / Kitakyushu City
