Emergency mode introduced throughout Japan

Emergency Situation (EMERCOM) will be valid throughout Japan until May 6. This was reported on Thursday, April 16, by Minister for Economic Recovery Yasutoshi Nishimura, responsible for measures to combat coronavirus infection COVID-19.

“Minimizing the movement of people during a long weekend is an urgent task,” he stressed at a meeting of the advisory council on emergency situations in connection with coronavirus.

The regime was previously announced until May 6 in Tokyo, Osaka, Kanagawa, Saitama, Tibet, Hege and Fukuoka. Now it will be active in other regions of the country, as the virus is still spreading. This will enable local authorities to demand the closure of schools and a number of other facilities.
