Emergency in Tokyo and 6 other areas in Japan
“Since I have decided that a situation has arisen that we fear will have a serious impact on people’s lives and the economy … I declare a state of emergency,” Abe said in a televised statement.
The state of emergency will give governors the power to urge people to stay home and businesses to stop work, but without imposing strict measures like those in other countries. In general, no sanctions are provided for people who violate the requirements, and their compliance will rely more on social pressure and respect for the authorities.
