Nikkei wrote that a supra-partisan group of lawmakers has put together a recommendation for the GOJ to fully compensate hospitals for financial losses suffered as a result of treating COVID-19 patients. According to a poll taken by a national hospital association, hospitals and clinics that treated coronavirus patients posted  97 million yen ($918,000) in debt on average in April and 100 million yen ($947,000) in May because they were not able to perform surgeries or other high-income services on account of the need to focus on coronavirus patients.
