Covid-19 outbreak: Japan announces emergency for a month

Apr 07, 2020 15:19 IST

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday declared a state of emergency to fight Covid-19 infections in major population centres and unveiled a stimulus package he described as among the world's biggest to soften the economic blow. Abe announced the state of emergency for one month in Tokyo, Osaka and six other regions- which account for about 44 per cent of country’s population. His cabinet will also finalise the stimulus package worth US$990 billion which is equal to 20 per cent of Japan's economic output.
