NHK took up remarks made to the press this morning by Education Minister Hagiuda on the growing number of COVID-19 cases among minors in the prefectures currently under a state of emergency or quasi-state of emergency. He stressed that the ministry has no intention to call for nationwide school closures when the summer break ends in many parts of the country. He added that school closures should be considered on a local basis since the infection situation and healthcare capacities vary.
