Japan faces an unprecedented closure due to the outbreak of the Corona virus at a catastrophic level

The calls came as Japan grapples with its worst wave of coronavirus cases, Bloomberg News reported on Friday.

Japanese medical advisor urges stricter measures on Corona

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike warned that the situation in the capital had reached a catastrophic level as cases jumped to a record high of 5,773 cases, more than fourfold in just 3 weeks.

Virus experts described the situation as “out of control” in an analysis they submitted to the capital’s government earlier.

Provincial governors and a prominent member of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party called on the central government to consider imposing strict measures.

Those calls have so far been rejected by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, who faces a general election in the next three months with his popularity dropping to record levels.
