[Online Event] Japan Society – Combating COVID-19: Japan’s Response & Efforts

Thursday, February 25 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Many are hopeful that the new coronavirus vaccine will bring an end to the pandemic that has cost more than 1.5 million lives and plunged the world’s economies into decline. However, the virus remains rampant and the world is still engulfed in a health crisis. In Japan, the Japanese government continues to take measures to suppress the spread of the coronavirus. What is the current situation in Japan? Why is the COVID-19 death rate low in Japan compared to other countries? In this webinar, leading Japanese experts share their insights into the latest situation in Japan, the government’s response to the coronavirus and the nation’s plan for the COVID-19 vaccination.

This event is part of the Japanese government’s “Walk in U.S., Talk on Japan” program.
