The Japanese Gov. the Declaration state of Emergency against COVID-19

The Japanese Gov. the Declaration state of Emergency against COVID-19

The declaration is currently valid until Wednesday, May 6th.

The Government of Japan has issued a Declaration of Emergency under the Special Measures Law in response to the spread of COVID-19 in major city areas.
The target prefectures are Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka.
Unlike overseas, in Japan there are strong demands such as "at home" and "do not go to crowded places", and there is no legal force. However, many citizens will be quietly managed.
For this reason, activities to maintain life, such as going to a medical institution, purchasing food, and commuting to work, are guaranteed.
