    Japan Declares State Of Emergency Over Coronavirus Pandemic

    The Japanese capital Tokyo is among one of the country's worst-hit areas due to coronavirus outbreak

    Japan has declared a state of emergency on April 7th, 2020 amid a surge in novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases.

    The state of emergency will last from April 7th, 2020 through May 6th, 2020, and be in place across seven virus-hit prefectures.

    This comes as Japan reported 252 new cases of the coronavirus and seven more deaths on April 6th, 2020. Till date, Japan registered 4,600 numbers of positive COVID-19 cases and 91 deaths.

    Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said there would be no European-style lockdowns. “As I decided that a situation feared to gravely affect people’s lives and the economy has occurred… I am declaring a state of emergency,” Abe said.

    The state of emergency will only permit Tokyo’s Governor Yuriko Koike and heads of six other designated prefectures to do more to reinforce calls for social distancing, Abe said.

    The Japanese Prime Minister informed that under the declaration, “basic economic activity” will continue in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka, the seven affected prefectures. The Japanese capital Tokyo is among one of the country’s worst-hit areas.

    He said that public transport and supermarkets will remain open. Abe urged people to practice social distancing and avoid unnecessary trips.

    Japan, with a population of over 126 million, is facing a potential shortage of ventilators for the worst affected.

    Over 1.3 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 across the world. More than 74,500 people have died while around 285,000 have recovered, as per the data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
