Aichi Joins Okinawa in Declaring State of Emergency – Tokyo Still Hasn’t – Osaka Governor Claims Gargling Helps Against Coronavirus

Health Minister Hints at Nationwide State of Emergency

The Aichi, Japan has declared a state of emergency according to numerous reports. On August 4, the prefecture added 120 cases to its total of 2,391 as per Nippon.com – although, Tokyo has yet to declare anything of the sort despite its numbers rising another 309 atop its total of 14,022.

As we reported recently, the number of COVID-19 cases in Japan’s capital had doubled in the month of July and have been steadily rising since.

Aichi’s numbers have been rising since mid-July – it joins Oikinawa which had recently declared its own state of emergency due to concerns over health concerns related to Coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the Japan Times News reports that Hirofumi Yoshimura, Governor of Osaka, has been claiming that gargling medicine gives one the ability to control the disease.

An article in NHK World Japan reports that hospitalization in Japan have surged. The same paper has Japan’s health minister Kato Katsunobu indicating that a nation-wide state of emergency is possible.
