down remaining Shin Sanji members for a thorough investigation it has received a
list of some 212,000 members authorities say they are aiming to
complete their probe into all the members on that list within the next two
weeks starting with medical examinations of high-risk patients and plans to
conduct an examination via phone with the other members and she as I’ve
