As new coronavirus infections (Corona 19) patients appeared one after another across Japan, leading to a state of medical collapse, the government declared an emergency situation in seven additional local governments including Osaka on the 13th. As a result, the number of areas where the emergency was issued has increased to 11, including 4 local governments in the metropolitan area including Tokyo.
According to NHK on the 13th, the Japanese government decided to issue an emergency situation in seven additional local governments, including Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo, Aichi, Gifu, Tochigi, and Fukuoka. The period is from the 14th to the 8th of the following month. In addition to Tokyo, emergencies have been issued in all three metropolitan areas, including Osaka and Nagoya.
The government plans to demand that the restaurant business hours be increased by 8 pm and the number of attendees reduced by 70% through telecommuting. The cooperation fund paid to restaurants that have shortened their business hours will increase from 40,000 yen (about 420,000 won) per day to 60,000 yen.
In order to increase the effectiveness of such measures, the Japanese government is pursuing a revision of the law to impose penalties on violators. According to the government draft proposed to the ruling Liberal Democratic Party on the 12th, if hospitalization is refused, imprisonment or fines can be imposed, and business operators can be “ordered” to close. If you do not comply with the suspension order, a fine will be imposed. The government plans to pass the amendment to the regular National Assembly, which begins on the 18th, but the opposition party is negative about the imposition of penalties, and it is expected to suffer over the passage of the National Assembly.
