【COVID-19】 ARROWS Dispatches Medical Team to Hiroshima and Okinawa Prefectures
ARROWS (Airborne Rescue and Relief Operations With Search) distributed infection prevention items to welfare facilities and began providing medical assistance to hospitals including administering booster shots.
In Hiroshima Prefecture, where ARROWS is based, record-level infections have been reported. In response, a state of restraint has been issued in fear that the healthcare system may be paralyzed if infections spread further. Some healthcare facilities have been forced to limit their emergency room outpatient operations and patient intakes as staffing shortages became more serious due to a growing number of staff on leave.

The ARROWS team works toward its mission - saving as many lives as possible in less time. ARROWS will continue providing relevant and timely assistance including guidance on infection prevention measures, vaccine administration, and deployment of medical teams.
Since January 2020, ARROWS has distributed personal protective equipment (PPE), deployed medical staff to healthcare facilities, provided training on zoning and how to properly use PPEs. ARROWS has worked with more than 4,300 healthcare facilities including welfare centers and mental health hospitals where public assistance was not always available.
