Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared a state of emergency against the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Reuters, he also released a nearly $1 trillion stimulus package to help the economy. The state of emergency will be enforced in Tokyo and six other prefectures, around 44 percent of Japan’s population. Abe said: “We will protect the employment and life [of Japan] at all costs.” Major department stores, restaurants and bars around Tokyo are forced to closed down during the emergency.
