Japan’s government urges people to spend a “quiet” year-end due to surge in corona cases

Published on : Saturday, December 12, 2020

Japan’s government has urged people to spend a “quiet” year-end after daily corona virus infections witnessed a surge; however, it said that it would keep providing subsidies for tourism promotion in spite of media reports about pausing the campaign.


“The reports are not true, we will continue to operate it in an appropriate way, striving to prevent infections spreading,” said the government’s top spokesman, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato, at a press briefing.


New corona virus infections in Japan reached 2,848 cases on Thursday, which is the maximum in a single day since the beginning of the pandemic.


Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s administration was considering a pause in the “Go To Travel” campaign for around two months at year-end and into the New Year with public opinion shifting to supporting a halt.


Suga’s government has considered the subsidies as essential to keep hotels and airlines in business and perk up an economy affected by a pandemic that has confined people at home.
