On the ground, from January 1th, we conducted a situation survey and transported relief supplies to three nursing care facilities serving as evacuation centers in Suzu City, Ishikawa Prefecture, and on January 7th, we conducted a survey of the conditions at nursing care facilities with high levels of care that were affected by the disaster. We carried out a mission to provide evaluation and support, as well as medically transporting people who were unwell to Suzu General Hospital.
