Should Tokyo be locked down as the virus infections surge in the city and other parts of Japan? Now, the city has overtaken Hokkaido, in terms of the number of virus-infected cases in the country. Well, that was the issue addressed by Tokyo`s Governor Yuriko Koike. She plans to embrace full measures to control the epidemic including a lockdown in the city should the need arise.
To help control the spike in Covid-19 cases in the city, she hinted at imposing a strict lockdown in the city if the situation gets worse. She urged Tokyo residents to stay at home during the upcoming weekend. She also asked residents to avoid all non-essential outings through until April 12.
