“being terribly grateful”
In the challenging time due to the COVID-19 spread in the world, a friend of ILE, the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (SIOM), Chinese Academy of Science, a partner with which ILE has a MOU, kindly offered to provide masks. The day after the declaration of an emergency situation was issued in Japan, 1000 medical masks were shipped to us. While there is a worldwide shortage of masks, we express our gratitude to the Director of SIOM, Prof. Jianda Shao and all the people concerned for their support and would like to make effective use of them.
We are currently promoting the use of telework and rotation to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections. Under such situations, we would like to make use of the mask provided only for cases that cannot be interrupted due to the operation of ILE.
