Novel coronavirus outbreak / visitation in Japan

Novel coronavirus outbreak / visitation in Japan

A woman talks to her family by using a video telephone system at the lobby of a special elderly nursing home while limited access in Osaka on April 27, 2020, amid an outbreak of the new coronavirus COVID-19. Japan's government declared a state of emergency to Tokyo and six prefectures of Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka for about one month on April 7th. Furthermore, the Japanese government decided to add 40 prefectures to the area of the emergency declaration and expand the target area to all over the country on April 16th. The period will be until May 6th. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe asked 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 )
