Novel coronavirus (110) Introduction: Hidetoshi Fujino, Japan - Coronavirus and children

Dear all members in HIFA

I'm a general pediatrician working at a private clinic in Japan. I join HIFA, because I would like to share information regarding new Corona virus infection with the members. Please send message about COVID-19 so that I can fight against the disease with HIFA colleagues. [*see note below]

Thanks in advance.

Hidetoshi Fujino, Kyoto, Japan
