As the number of people infected with the novel coronavirus continues to rise in Japan, it's only natural that there should be a proportionate need for disinfection. In spite of increased pressure for companies to allow employees to telework, Japan's work culture is making it difficult to implement.

According to the Asahi Shimbun, a survey conducted between March 31st and April 1st by LINE in collaboration with Japan's health ministry yielding 24 million responses revealed a measly 5.2% teleworking rate.

For company offices and hotels, the discovery of an infected person requires immediate action, obviously beginning with the care of the employee. However, in order to ensure the safety of those who must continue to work there, it's necessary to call upon the services of disinfection professionals.
