Pokémon developer Game Freak has announced that an employee working in its Setagaya, Tokyo office has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

The studio has issued a statement on the matter on its official website, noting that thanks to social distancing measures and as a result of staff working from home for the past few weeks, other team members are "unlikely to contract" the virus from the affected employee. Business will also go ahead as usual.

I hope he stays safe at the end of that 2 week isolation ward. Those are critical days for him. And I am sure it would be easier for him or her to take care of his health. I think developers from his team should support him in his this phase of life.
