In northeastern Japan, Miyagi Prefecture, which has currently declared its own state of emergency, confirmed over 150 new cases for the third straight day. Neighboring Yamagata Prefecture reported 34 cases after logging a record high of 49 the previous day.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga declared a one-month emergency in the Tokyo region on Jan. 7, later expanding it to a total of 11 prefectures and extending it for most of them to March 7. It was further extended by two weeks to last Sunday for Tokyo and the three neighboring prefectures.

Nationwide on Friday, the number of infected people with severe symptoms edged down by two from Thursday to 323, according to the Health Ministry.
