Osaka wants govt to declare state of emergency

Osaka Governor Hirofumi Yoshimura said that he is planning to ask Japan's government to reimpose the state of emergency in the prefecture amid a rise in COVID-19 cases.

The western Japan prefecture reported a record 1,220 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, more than a fourth of the total number of daily infections registered.

Previously, the governor of Tokyo said she might request the same measures be declared in the most populous prefecture of Japan.
