In the comment above, Akutami apologized to fans and explained that the illness was an "ordinary" illness, referring to the fact it wasn't COVID-19, and that they are now recovering. The manga creator also mentioned that they had tried to get a draft ahead last year so that the series wouldn't have to miss a week if they got sick, but they didn't have the time to finish it off. 

 

The TV anime adaptation of JUJUTSU KAISEN is currently streaming right here on Crunchyroll.
