Johnny's & Associates has announced that Naniwa Danshi members Onishi Ryusei, Takahashi Kyohei, and Fujiwara Joichiro have tested positive for COVID-19.
Previously, Naniwa Danshi's Nishihata Daigo was confirmed positive for the virus on January 20th. Fujiwara, Ohashi Kazuya, and Michieda Shunsuke made a remote appearance on Nippon Broadcast's 'Naniwa Danshi no All Night Nippon Premium' on the 22nd, but besides this, the members cancelled their jobs and were tested several times. As a result, they learned that Onishi, Takahashi, and Fujiwara were infected with the virus as well.
The four infected members will isolate and recuperate for the time being. The remaining three members were tested again on the 24th, and have all received negative results.
