Nikkei and Mainichi took up Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato’s remarks to the press yesterday regarding media coverage of the arrival in Japan of the first tranche of COVID-19 vaccines from overseas. “We want the media to be sensitive and cooperative,” he was quoted as saying. “Reporting on delivery schedules, including storage locations, could lead to an unforeseen situation from the standpoint of security.” Mainichi said the GOJ does not plan to disclose information on the shipment of vaccines, including when and where they will arrive.
