I took the telephone from the public health center last week.

The staff in the public health center asked,
“Do not you have a fever or a cough?”
I said “No”.
The staff said “OK, The term of the surveillance ends. 10 days passed after you had returned home from SanFrancisco, and you do not have a fever or a cough”.

Surprisingly, the public health center is calling all people who went to foreign countries!
However I became free now!

However, many people caught flu now in Japan.
The many are the people who have not been to foreign countries.
The Ministry of Health and Welfare doesn’t understand why.
I think that this situation continues for a while.

I am writing sentences as a practice of English.
However, no one checks my English!
Is my English correct or not correct?
There is no verification method  (^^;)

It is a paradox.
However, I do not stop it.
書き続けてやるー。
