NHK and TV-Asahi reported that the GOJ plans to hold a meeting this evening among cabinet ministers involved in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, projecting that they are likely to decide to place additional prefectures under a state of emergency or quasi-state of emergency in view of the relentless rise in infections nationwide. The Shizuoka government decided earlier today to urge the central government to place the prefecture under a state of emergency after it reported a record 394 cases on Sunday.
