Govt Eyes COVID-19 Pre-emergency Measures for Aichi Pref.

   Tokyo, April 13 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government is considering allowing COVID-19 pre-emergency measures to be taken in the central prefecture of Aichi, which is facing a sharp increase in new infections, it was learned Tuesday.
   The national government will also examine whether pre-emergency measures should be implemented in the prefectures of Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba, which surrounds Tokyo, government sources said.
   Pre-emergency measures are currently in place in Tokyo, as well as the western prefecture of Osaka and some others.
   At a press conference on Tuesday, Aichi Governor Hideaki Omura indicated that the prefecture plans to ask the government for pre-emergency measures.
