Japan PM Abe declares state of emergency over coronavirus

 TOKYO (China Daily/ANN) --Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday declared a month-long state of emergency in Tokyo and six other parts of the country over a spike in coronavirus cases.

Pedestrians wearing protective masks make their way, following the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Tokyo, Japan April 7, 2020. 

 


"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 measure falls short of the strict lockdowns seen in other parts of the world but empowers local governors to urge people to stay inside and to call for businesses to close.
