MSF closed our COVID-19 projects in Japan in May 2020
In 2011, MSF teams responded to the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami off the northeastern coast of Japan. Teams also responded by providing medical treatment in evacuation centres after the April 2016 earthquake in Kumamoto.
In April and May 2020, our teams responded to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in the country, providing medical assistance to people on board a docked cruise ship, and supporting with epidemiological analysis in Tokyo.
