Source Title: the deadline of the emergency declaration is coming, President of the Japanese Medical Association: it is not realistic to lift it
On the 27 day of the local time, it was nearly three weeks since the Japanese government reissued the emergency declaration to curb the spread of COVID-19. In February 7th, the declaration of state of emergency will be invalid. Toshio Nakagawa, President of the Japanese Medical Association, said on the same day that although it has certain effect in preventing the spread of infection, it is unrealistic to lift the Declaration on February 7.
According to NHK, Nakagawa said at a press conference on the same day that although it has achieved certain results in preventing the spread of infection after the promulgation of the emergency declaration, it can not be overestimated. He pointed out that from the current situation, we must carefully consider whether to lift the emergency declaration. Nakagawa stressed that at present, many Japanese people are enduring themselves, and once the declaration is lifted, there may be unbearable consequences.
According to Kyodo news agency, Japanese Prime Minister Kan Yiwei also said on the same day that he would announce whether to extend the emergency several days before the deadline.
According to NHK, as of 19:54 local time on the 27th (18:54 Beijing time), Japan reported 3965 new confirmed cases on the same day, with a total of more than 370000 confirmed cases. Nakagawa suggested that at that time, it should be determined whether to lift the emergency according to the tension of beds and the number of confirmed patients.
