If You Live In This Country, Get Ready To Receive Cash Payment Of N359,361 Each To Cushion Effects Of Coronavirus

Shinzo Abe, Japan's Prime Minister

Shinzo Abe, Japan's Prime Minister has announced to give every citizen of the country N359,361 to cushion the effect of coronavirus.

The Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe on Friday announced that Japan will offer a cash payment of 100,000 yen ($930/N359,361) to every resident, as part of measures to contain the effects of coronavirus.

“We are moving quickly to deliver cash to all people,” Abe said in a televised news conference to explain his decision to expand a state of emergency nationwide.

According to a report by AFP, an initial plan to provide three times that amount to households, which have seen incomes slashed because of the coronavirus, was ditched and Abe apologised for the confusion.

Japan has seen relatively few cases and deaths compared to hotspots in Europe and the United States but a recent spike in Tokyo — which logged a daily record 201 new cases on Friday — has sparked concern.

Abe initially declared a state of emergency in seven regions of the country but expanded this on Thursday to include the entire country.

He said this decision was taken in a bid to restrict domestic travel during the Golden Week holidays in late April and early May, when many Japanese leave cities to visit family elsewhere.

The state of emergency hands regional governors the power to demand people stay indoors but stops far short of restrictions seen elsewhere as there is no punishment for transgression.

Abe said authorities would reassess the situation on May 6 at the end of the public holiday, saying: “If we can all refrain from going out, we can drastically reduce the number of patients in two weeks.”

“The future depends on our behaviour,” said the prime minister, saying his goal for everyone to reduce social contact by at least 70 percent was not yet being achieved.
