Japan Govt Wary of Coronavirus Resurgence amid Rising Cases

   On Monday, the number of new coronavirus cases in the Japanese capital exceeded 50 for the fourth consecutive day.
   The central government will hold the first meeting of a new expert panel Wednesday.
   The panel, including Kyoto University professor Shinya Yamanaka, will analyze the effects of the government's coronavirus measures such as a target of reducing interpersonal contact by 80 pct.
