Japan could declare new state of emergency - minister

Japanese Health Minister Tamura Norihisa stated on Friday that the country's government might introduce a new state of emergency in Tokyo to avoid the further spread of COVID-19.

Norihisa explained authorities will need to impose strict measures to prevent new spikes in infections, especially as the number of vaccinations performed has not yet reached a satisfactory level.

The previous, most recent state of emergency was lifted on June 20.
