In the wake of augmenting death in Japan because of coronavirus, the country for the very first time is to announce a state of emergency on April 7. More than hundred people have lost their lives by far in Japan.
Media reports quoted a government official saying that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to declare the emergency state on April 7 and the order will be enforced from April 8.
The recent decisions are being taken to curb the surge of COVID-19 cases in Japan and limit the mortality rates aligned to it.
Since appearing in Wuhan, China last December, the novel coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19, has spread to at least 183 countries and regions, according to figures compiled by the US-based Johns Hopkins University.
