Japan's government will declare a state of emergency for seven more prefectures later Wednesday in a bid to stem a sharp rise in coronavirus cases and relieve pressure on hospitals, with a final decision expected after a government meeting with experts.
The additional restrictions will apply to the western Japanese prefectures of Osaka, Hyogo and Kyoto, the central prefectures of Gifu and Aichi, which includes Nagoya, as well as the southern prefecture of Fukuoka and the eastern prefecture of Tochigi and will last until Feb. 7, as it does for Tokyo and its surrounding prefectures of Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba. The move means the major urban centers of Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya will all now be under states of emergency.
