At a meeting of the government’s novel coronavirus task force, the government decided to switch Tokyo, Osaka, Aichi, Fukuoka, Hokkaido, Hyogo and Kyoto to emergency-level priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease.
No measures will be in place in Okayama and Hiroshima prefectures after Sunday.
“We will continue to take measures focusing on eating and drinking,” Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said at the meeting.
