NHK reported at noon that Economic Revitalization Minister Nishimura expressed a negative view about expanding the current state of emergency nationwide. He reportedly said that the law calls for minimizing the curtailment of private rights, so “we must be careful when considering the addition of Tohoku and other regions where the number of cases is small.” He also reportedly said that a request from the governor is not a prerequisite for issuing a state of emergency.
