On December 8th, the Osaka Prefecture Consumers' Co-operative Union held an online study session on "Co-op Infectious Disease Guideline" with the participation of 25 BCP officers from its member co-ops. Resource persons were drawn from JCCU, Osaka Izumi Co-op, and Co-op Kobe to report on the situation, response, guidelines, and manuals for the COVID-19 epidemic.
