The government's subcommittee, which is made up of experts for the new corona measures, will extend the deadline for 17 prefectures such as Osaka until next month 6 for priority measures such as spread prevention, while 5 prefectures such as Okinawa will be canceled with a deadline of 20 days. I accepted the policy to do so.


The government will make a formal decision on the night of the 18th.

The government's "Basic Coping Policy Subcommittee" was held, which is made up of experts on infectious diseases, etc., over measures against the new corona.



Regarding priority measures such as spread prevention, the government said that it is necessary to continue to work on controlling the spread of infection in 3 prefectures in Kansai, Hokkaido, Fukuoka, etc., which has a deadline of 20 days, and Wakayama, which has a deadline of 27 days this month. We consulted on a policy to extend until the day.



On the other hand, the five prefectures of Okinawa, Yamagata, Shimane, Yamaguchi, and Oita have also consulted on the policy of canceling the infection with a deadline of 20 days, assuming that the infection situation has settled down.



Deputy Minister Huang Kawada of the Cabinet Office, who is in charge of measures against the new corona, said, "Although the speed of infection spread is slowing in 17 prefectures, many infected people are still confirmed, and the number of seriously ill people may increase in the future. It is necessary to reduce the burden on the provision system. In the five prefectures, the number of newly infected people is declining, and the burden of medical care is declining. "



The subcommittee discussed and approved these policies.



The government will make a formal decision at the Countermeasures Headquarters on the night of the 18th after prior reporting to the Diet and questions.



As a result, the deadline for priority measures will be 6th next month in 31 prefectures including 1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures such as Tokyo.
