OHTAWARA, January 30, 2020—Currently, the Novel Coronavirus continues to spread from the City of Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, to other locations throughout the world.
We at Canon extend our heartfelt condolences to those who have perished due to the virus, as well as those currently suffering from it and those living in fear of its effects. Our thoughts go out to all affected, and we sincerely hope that those who have contracted the virus recover as soon as possible.
