Virus Flood Pushes Japan To Expand Emergency Measures

As daily infections hit record high, enhanced curbs to be imposed in 34 of Japan's 47 provinces starting Thursday.

An unprecedented rise in COVID-19 cases has forced Japan's government to expand the quasi-state of emergency to 18 more provinces.
Effective from Thursday, stricter restrictions will be imposed in 34 of Japan's 47 provinces at least until Feb. 20, Kyodo News reported on Tuesday.
The decision came after Japan reported a record 62,610 new virus cases, its biggest single-day spike since the pandemic began in December 2019.
Daily fatalities also climbed to 42, the country's highest tally since Oct. 8, 2021.
New cases in the capital Tokyo, which has been hit hardest in the new wave driven by the highly transmissible omicron variant, surged to a record high of 12,813.
Japan first imposed a quasi-state of emergency in three provinces and Tokyo early this month, which was then expanded to 12 more provinces.
The measure empowers local governments to take steps such as restricting office timings to avoid rush hours and asking restaurants and bars to shorten business hours and stop or limit the serving of alcohol, the report said.​​​​​​​
Japan has now reported more than 2.21 million COVID-19 cases, including 18,523 deaths. -
