Novel coronavirus outbreak / state of emergency in Japan

People wearing a face mask are seen in front of Tokyo Station in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo on April 7, 2020, amid an outbreak of the new corona virus COVID-19. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will proclaim a state of emergency to Tokyo, Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka for about one month on the same day, and will ask for refraining from going out to the extent possible. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, globally widespread on March 11th. ( The Yomiuri Shimbun via AP Images )
