Tokyo residents urged to stay home as virus cases climb

Tokyo Tokyo’s governor urged residents to stay home this weekend, warning of a possible “explosion” of the coronavirus with a record 41 new cases discovered on Wednesday.
Yuriko Koike said the Japanese capital, so far spared the draconian measures seen in other major global cities, was at a “critical stage” in containing the virus that has confined one third of the planet to their homes.
“We urge people at all costs to refrain from going out this weekend if it’s not urgent,” Koike said at an emergency news conference.
She also encouraged Tokyo residents to work at home during weekdays and refrain from going out at night. (AFP)
