COVID-19: Confirmed coronavirus cases hit 5 million worldwide


Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said that it was possible that a state of emergency in Tokyo and its surrounding regions could end as early as next week if the number of coronavirus infections continues to decrease.




“The state of emergency will continue in Tokyo, Hokkaido, and other regions. We will meet with experts (on Monday) to update the situation on infections,” Abe told reporters after ending the state of emergency in Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo prefectures.

“If the current situation continues, it is possible that the state of emergency could be lifted in those areas.”

Airlines should stick to ticket price guidelines issued by India’s civil aviation ministry when they restart some domestic flights, two months after air travel was halted due to the pandemic, the ministry has said.

Airlines should adhere to the lower and upper limits of fares set by the ministry, it said in a notice, but it did not give details on the amounts.



Airlines will be allowed to resume about a third of their operations from Monday, adhering to rules that include no meals onboard, temperature checks for all passengers, and full protective gear for the crew, the ministry said.
