TOKYO (AP) – Japan Aponia is set to step up anti-virus measures in Tokyo on Friday to prevent the spread of a more contagious coronavirus just three months before the start of the Olympic Games in the capital, where most people have not yet been vaccinated.
Experts from the government panel initially approved the emergency measures, which included mandatory orders in Tokyo, Kyoto, in the western part of Japan, and in the prefecture of the southern islands of Okinawa. The events, which will be announced by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga later on Friday, are expected to start on Monday and end in early May.
The move comes less than three weeks after the Tokyo State of Emergency, which included non-mandatory requirements for short-term business owners to get residents to pay attention to basic precautions.
The outbreak of the virus in Tokyo underscores the difficulty of balancing anti-virus measures և the economy.
The Suga government has been criticized for being too slow to respond to viral measures without reluctance to harm the affected economy. The new measures allow prefecture leaders to target specific cities and issue mandatory orders aimed at preventing another state of emergency, according to Suga.
Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said he was concerned about the recent rise in virus cases and the possible impact of new versions. On Thursday, Koike called on residents to avoid trivialities, social distance and other major activities. He is expected to give an order for bars and restaurants at 8 pm.
The additional steps were to be taken days after the Ossetian government imposed new binding anti-virus measures as the renaissance is blamed for spreading the version. After Osaka was overwhelmed with new cases, Osaka declared an ambulance, and the Olympic torch relay went off the public roads the following week.
Because the Japan aponia vaccine is still in its infancy. With just over 1 million, or less than 1% of its population, receiving the first of the first two shots, the wave could trigger a further reversal or reversal of Olympic-related events.
Vaccinations began in mid-February with health workers, and the elderly plan to receive their staff from next week until the end of June. The rest of the population will probably have to wait until July, which makes it almost impossible for Japan to soak up the so-called herd of immunity until the start of the Tokyo Olympics on July 23.
