The Saturday edition of Nikkei reported that in addition to the seven prefectures initially placed under a state of emergency, the six others that were designated as prefectures that should especially be on alert for the spread of COVID-19 have announced that they will request businesses to close temporarily. The paper noted, however, that prefectures other than the designated ones are hesitant to ask businesses to close as they lack sufficient financial resources to provide subsidies to them.
