Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress visit the medical field online for the first time November 18 at 8:18 p.m.
Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress visited the medical site of the Japanese Red Cross Society, which deals with the new coronavirus, online. This is their first online visit.
On the afternoon of the 18th, they used online at their Akasaka Imperial Palace to visit the medical site of the Japanese Red Cross Society and were asked about their response to the new coronavirus.
It was the first time that an online visit was conducted on the official duties of the two Emperors, and after receiving explanations from the presidents of the Japanese Red Cross Society, I visited the Japanese Red Cross Medical Center in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo.
According to the Imperial Household Agency, the two Emperors were concerned about the epidemic of infectious diseases and the impending situation in the hospital, and wanted to encourage medical personnel closely, so they had a meeting with doctors and nurses on site following an inspection of the new Coronavirus countermeasure headquarters and a dedicated ward.
Next, I had an online meeting with officials from Hokkaido, Fukushima Prefecture, and the Red Cross Hospital in Okinawa Prefecture.
While the opportunity to interact with the public due to the spread of the infection has been limited, they have repeatedly received explanations from experts in various fields and sent words to people, but they are expected to be able to take advantage of online visits and exchanges in the future.
