Nikkei took up remarks made to the press this morning by Osaka Governor Yoshimura, who said his prefecture appears to be “entering the second wave of coronavirus infection” in light of the continued surge in new cases in the past several days. The official stressed, however, that the current wave may not be as serious as the first wave at least for now because the bulk of patients are relatively young and most of the hospital beds secured for those with serious symptoms remain vacant.
