All national dailies reported online on remarks made on an Internet TV program on Sunday night by Prime Minister Abe. He reportedly talked about the development of COVID-19 vaccines abroad. Noting that the U.S.’s Moderna and the UK’s AstraZeneca are moving rapidly to produce vaccines, the premier reportedly stated: “Their vaccines may become available by the end of the year. We are negotiating with them so that there is a sufficient supply for provision to Japan.” He emphasized that there is no reason to ease vigilance against the coronavirus in the summer, as it has also spread widely in warm climates around the world. He was quoted as saying: “We would like to increase our testing and hospital capacities in preparation for a second wave.”
