Japanese Equivalent to "Take Care" (Coronavirus)

Hi everyone,

During these crazy times of coronavirus, I’ve often been telling people to “take care” or “take care of yourself” or “be safe.” What would I say in Japanese that would be equivalent to that? Maybe “体に気をつけて”? Thanks.

That’s what I’d use too! :+1:

As I understand it, お大事だいじに might be closer to “get well soon” – i.e., more often said to someone who’s already sick.

One can use お元気genkiで instead to say “take care of your self” (please stay healthy).

No?

I like to use

いっぱい飲んでね。コロナ殺せ!

There are people who aren’t sick?

Would appear that it fits

「お大事に」can be used “preventatively” and is basically a catch-all for health-related well-wishing.

「気を付けて」is used before undertaking a specific action (including routine travel), and is more about taking care around/dealing with external factors.
