Ho Chi Minh City, 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.

    In order to help efforts to cope with the shortage of diagnostic imaging systems in the affected area, Canon (China) Co., Ltd., Canon Medical Systems (China) Co., Ltd. and all members of the Canon Group, via the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China, will donate a full-body X-ray CT diagnosis system to the Tongji Hospital of Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, in the city of Wuhan. Using this system, medical professionals can perform clinical tests for emphysema caused by the Novel Coronavirus.

    Through the donation of the X-ray CT diagnosis system, the Canon Group aims to support medical professionals and those in other industries working to treat patients who have contracted the Novel Coronavirus. In addition, Canon will provide needed parts and maintenance to hospitals throughout China that use the company's medical devices.
