Japan calls coronavirus COVID-19 a ‘national crisis’ after surge in Tokyo

Please follow and like us:

Japan banned entry from Europe on Thursday and warned of a high risk of coronavirus COVID-19 that the outbreak would become rampant after a surge in Tokyo.

In a step towards a possible state of emergency, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe described the coronavirus COVID-19 as a “national crisis” in a task force meeting Thursday. Authorities are particularly worried that a jump in cases in Tokyo means Japan which has so far escaped a mass spread that has hit Europe and North America could now be on course for a big new wave. 

On Thursday, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike warned of the coronavirus COVID-19 of an explosive rise in infections in the capital and asked residents to avoid non-essential outings through April 12. Japan’s Health Ministry reported 98 new cases Thursday, with more than a total of 1,200 reported infections as of Thursday. This comes just days after the Tokyo 2020 Olympic were postponed.
