Japan’s Health Ministry Posts Cells at Work! Manga’s COVID-19 and All-New Vaccine Chapters for Free Globally

Kodansha has announced that it and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan are posting the “new coronavirus disease (COVID-19)” chapter and a brand-new “COVID-19 vaccine” chapter from Akane Shimizu’s Cells at Work! (Hataraku Saibō) manga in a motion comic format (which includes added sound effects) in Japanese, English, and Hindi. The Japanese version of both chapters is already available.

Kodansha collaborated with the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the National Center for Global Health and Medicine, the ICheck home COVID-19 detection kit program, and the AnyMind technology company.

The original manga ended on January 26, 2021 with the “new coronavirus disease (COVID-19)” chapter as its final chapter, while the “COVID-19 vaccine” chapter is an all-new chapter, supervised by Shimizu, and drawn by Kairemeku.

Shimizu launched the original Cells at Work! manga in the March 2015 issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English.
