Due to the re-expansion of COVID-19, the governors of Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, and Kanagawa held a video conference on January 17. The governors requested the Japanese government to apply semi-emergency coronavirus measures to Tokyo and the three prefectures.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the three prefectures discussed the content of behavior restrictions. The governors of Chiba and Saitama have stated that they are considering requesting restaurants to shorten their business hours.
The hospital bed occupancy rate, which indicates the degree of medical tightness, was 21% in Tokyo on January 17. It exceeded 20% that the Tokyo Metropolitan government had set as a guideline for determining the application of semi-emergency coronavirus measures.
At the meeting, the Governor of Tokyo, Yuriko Koike, proposed the application of semi-emergency coronavirus measures, saying, "It is necessary to take measures according to the actual conditions of the region without missing the timing." The governors of the three prefectures also responded to the proposal.
